  1. At one time I used it to cut drawer and door panels that would fit for cabinetry, but really like it for dentil molding....
  2. I assume you are talking about light duty wooden cam clamps. They are for light applications. I'm making around 100 of these for this or that applications. For light holding power,veneers or laminate applications...
  3. I use the miter saw in furniture making. Not everything requires me to set the table saw for cuts. Not everything that comes off the CNC is always that perfect. It can be used here and there and certainly would be missed.
  4. Baltic birch has also been sold in 4x6. It was offered to me at a discount because of the size, I bought all I could when I had a cabinet shop. That was 10+ years ago. This would only be through cabinet supply companies...
  5. I think there is confusion between 4x8 chinese birch and 4x8 baltic birch....
  6. Agree....But the fact that you show the piece on a hobby forum I wouldn't suggest. It's just a "piece" at this time. How you present it,Price it and who that see's it will make a difference. Very nice piece...It will help if you have it professionally photographed.
  7. I've never heard anything too bad about Forrest blades except resharpening. They're pretty addicted to TENRYU at work and do a very good job. I would look at cost and sharpening versus use to make the decision. We actually just switched sharpeners to FASTENAL as the have a CNC sharpener...
  8. I have never had a problem with my back but have been concerned lately of my hips and hands. It's amazing how many woodworkers build benches ,router tables ,buy saws with average height being the foundation to a build. There is guy at work that uses a lot of the tooling. He is 6'7. Over time I hope he will make enough changes to be more suitable for him to work.
  9. Building jigs over and over is a learning curve. Glad to see you've committed to a " one time" purchase that will last you for years. Congrats....
  10. Nice purchase. I'm sure Festool will get that savings back in time. There putting a new Amazon warehouse here in Kansas City. Hopefully it speeds up delivery.....
  11. Interesting that you do have time to post........
  12. You can build router tables about anyway you can imagine. If you start out with a foundation that will allow you to expand as you go it will full fill your needs. Many build once and start over once they find it's reached it's limitations.
  13. You can get a lot of the materials for a poker table at http://www.yourautotrim.com/ A lot of options and good pricing
  14. prices finally dropping on the Kreg sliding clamps if any need for them on Amazon,,,,
  15. Are you looking to spend $300 on a router or looking for something smaller?
  16. Good score but your now finding out how small your shop can get...
  17. I would pick them up for torsion tables we build at work but I'm purposely buying clamps that don't require a twisting motion for locking. $17.99 free shipping is reasonable for a name brand clamp these days, I bought a bunch of Kreg automaxx sliding bar clamps but really looking for a "deal of the day" on the Kreg 6" automaxx.
  18. This might be a good deal on the uniklamp for those looking,https://www.amazon.com/Bessey-UK3-012-12-Inch-UniKlamp/dp/B00006FRJM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1480172701&sr=8-1&keywords=uniklamp
  19. Turned out really nice................. I love making gaming tables. I've wanted to make a mah-jong table for a couple years but probably won't happen with all the other things I want or need to make
  20. I rarely use the stops. About 1% of the time. You can always pick them up later or wait till there selling them somewhere.....
  21. I bought the BORA clamping straight edge with extension just to replace making one. His video is a reverse of why I bought one.....
  22. I used a festool track saw one time to cut laminated 45 degree panels for a wall booth. I'm not sure if it's the only option out there but it worked flawlessly without chipping. Saw,blade or track or maybe the combination. Can't lose money on it's worth. I'll argue if there's a point to be made on a tool, but I'm speechless on the Festool results
