  1. You made all the opening one size? I couldnt on mine as there were too many size changes. He sioux pneumatic drill are really small.....
  2. I ran a comparison between Amana and Freud and found the Amana gave me more routes between sharpenings. I can only imagine the Freud saw blades would be less as well. I had Charles from Freud on Woodnet tell me it must be a bad raised panel bit. I guess that's always the answer. I prefer to pay a dollar more and save it o the sharpenings as there will be less...
  3. You need to run dc on top and bottom. An in enclosed box with dc adds air flow and will keep the motor from getting hot.....
  4. Key word money.... Went to an auction in kansas. Several of every tooling possible. Heated floors, wood stove. Huge shop my guess 30k sq ft. DIVORCE. ..... sell it all...heck of a setup....where I bought my Powermatic bandsaw..the littlest one he had....
  5. Any good brand you like with normal kerf... I use Tenryu or Amana on my saws. Mainly Amana....I stick with one brand mainly so I don't waste time looking around like shopping for golf clubs.......
  6. I just made a standard sander till I can get a deal on a oscillating ssnder... thx..
  7. Somebody had a drill hooked to there drill press and worked but I don't want to wear out ge drill press to save a dollar...I'll see how it operates just on the spindle...
  8. I may just make a drill press table today and see how it works for now. Considering the WEN portable as cheap as it is...thx..
  9. I was looking at the ridgid. Concerned a cheap HF would only go out after time...

    I just use the nut with the Delta RAS or Unisaw. I've had the Freud blades slip out of alignment after running the saw but nothing critical. ...
  12. I have to run a 13/4 over to the Delta RAS off a 4" line. It won't pull like a vacumn but should be sufficient to get the chunks out as its being used.....
  13. There are a lot of companies that make good sandpaper disc.some last longer, some more agressive some better at the start, some paper some not. All are in general are good. How much you spend per disc and what's expected will define the meaning of happy. Over all I buy VSM When ever possible. I usually buy self sticking but will add a velcro to one of the sanders for use with Surf-prep sandpaper...
  14. Trouble getting in the shop sometimeds. A little sanding. Went through 5 old Mirka belts breaking at the seam. Old Ebay off brands still holding together. Funny....
  15. It might be that sander. The Dewalt mentioned I've heard was good. When you have deep scratchesbest to use a belt sander to get down to a ROS stage,but my guess is you don't have one.
  16. Will trade for something of interest...
  17. I think these would be interesting challenges...

    He may have to box it in. Mine hums when it's on and is irritating. Mine doesn't come on unless it's the planer or the sander....

    Shop Layout Help

    I pretty much live on the workbench so recently I've tried to get everything Im chasing in close range of the work table. Clamps, miter saw,drill bits,drills,etc. Getting the stuff I don't use much the farthest in the shop...
  20. I wouldn't start with 40 grit. That's an eating grit I'll use 40 only for really depends scratches. Usually 60 grit is my first pick unless it's real deep. You really should start at 80 grit and work you way up.
  21. Sorry if I misunderstood you sawdust...
  22. Non acclimated. Very risky no matter how you prep.
  23. Thx....I had the surgery in August. I'm on dialysis not. Some days I'm in the shop some days I don't feel well enough to be in the shop... I worked for a designer for 4 weeks in Dec. to help him finish a job and even at 5 hrs a day some days were difficult. That 10-12 hr day thing I did all those years are gone. Better at housework now...
  24. It just means you'll have a Crack eventually. You cannot lock a solid top on movement. As mentioned in the beginning ......not acclimated.....
