    Just getting started in furniture building. Restoring and using vintage industrial equipment. Hope to get into turning once the lathe is done.

    adjusting/changing planer knifes

    Nah, I've been a member over there for years. I have learned vicariously from others.

    adjusting/changing planer knifes

    Check the Vintage Machinery Wiki (The Articles and Resources tab). Lots of info on adjusting knives there. Here's a link to some videos: http://wiki.vintagemachinery.org/Jointer And Planer Knife Setting Videos.ashx Owwm is a fine place, just don't ask for an appraisal, and don't ask about Asian machines.

    Design opinions

    Personally, I would look into laminated glass for that application. I have seen plate glass shatter too many times to trust it, even if it will "never" get messed with.

    Hinges for blanket chest?

    I can also vouch for those Rockler torsion hinges. I have them on a chest I made my wife a while back and they are doing great.

    Air Compressor

    I have a bostitch pancake for running the nailguns inside. I have a 75 foot hose for it so I can put the compressor in the next room and not have to listen to it. By the looks of the beast above, I could stand to upgrade my shop compressor. I don't use it enough to justiify anything like that. If I am doing anything outside the house, I have enough hose to use the big one, though.

    Need to freshen up my table saw. Powermatic.

    I would go with straight air before I got it wet with any other cleaner just to see if it blew off. I would hate to make sawmud if I didn't need to.

    Dremel Rotary Tools?

    I see they have 1" wheels on Amazon. As for the dremel, I've been through a few of them. 2 speed was OK, cordless was OK for light stuff. The multispeed is the way to go. They typically only last 2-3 years for me, so I don't buy top of the line. I do things with them that I probably shouldn't (aftermarket saw blades to trim subfloor for plumbing), so I understand why I kill them. They are really handy for things that require them.

    Unisaw Inspection

    The Bies fence from your contractor's saw may bolt onto the Unisaw. Delta liked to use the same bolt pattern on those saws. The bolts on the uni may be larger, so you may have to open up the holes on the bies rail, though.
