  1. Be honest, you just bought it for the yellow and black didn't you? Those are pretty cool shop stools. Please let us know how it works. I hate to break it to you, but you really don't need a crosscut sled if you have the Incra Miter Express. Read the Incra manuals and watch some videos on youtube. There are so many little things you can with it that you would have no idea without reading the manual.
  2. I'm not familiar with your saw, can you switch the dust collector pipe to exit on the side of the saw instead of the back? Might not be possible.

    Very cool. How did you make the cutouts for the blades? I really like the black labels too. Is that just a normal labelmaker?
  4. Links to Klingspor in case anyone else is looking. https://www.woodworkingshop.com/product/ss10000/ https://www.woodworkingshop.com/product/bzrd42400/
  5. Thanks for the tips. I do need to try some better sandpaper for my ROS as well. Guess this could be an expensive order. I'm really now sure how I'll incorporate this into my work, but I'd rather have some extra sandpaper in case I burn something in the middle of a project.
  6. Just picked up the Ridgid Oscillating Spindle Sander. I know a lot of people on here have them. Any replacement sandpaper recommendations? I don't think Ridgid sells replacements and I'd like to have some different grits.
  7. I tell me wife what they cost. Can't say she remembers it all, but no point in lying to her.
  8. Maybe I'll set alerts up for retiring and divorce under the tool section...
  9. Thanks Chestnut. A lot of what I come across around me is maybe $1 a BF off retail and farther then the retail. Unless I want to rent a truck and drive 4 hours each way I haven't seen any 'deals' come through. Guess I'll just keep my eyes open.
  10. I'm fortunate to have a hardwood dealer pretty close (20 mins.)to my house down back roads so I can bring my almost 30 year old truck without worrying about it. I still look for deals on craigslist, facebook marketplace, etc. but I'm not sure what's appropriate to pay. What are you willing to pay and how far would you drive for wood? Is there a general rule of thumb you follow like it needs to be 25/40/50% cheaper then a hardwood dealer?
  11. What car is under the cover? You didn't say what you want to work on. If you're only going to use plywood a jointer and planer might not matter. If you just want to turn things on a lathe, you might not need any of that. For what I do, I would get a jointer, planer and Harbor Freight dust collector. Then again, if you can afford the best now, go for it.
  12. You might be able to buy a second one and out the drawers underneath. I’m sure some quick googling will find a way to let the drawers not lock with the lid down.
  13. @Tobykanobe If the manual doesn't explain how to set up your guides/wheels let me know and I can dig up the manual to mine which has it.
  14. Here's a link the the manual. I think I used the Wood Magazine guide to figure out what band saw blade to get. I ended up with one of the Olson ones from Rockler for my first blade. Once I have a heavy band saw use project I'll buy additional blades if I need. I bought my band saw used and it came with the Kreg fence. I haven't used it extensively, but it seems to work just fine. There may be other options out there.
  15. I finally caught up on this. Amazing work and it's clear that you've developed a process that works for you. The pictures of all 3 together are great!
