  1. I ordered one of these and it will ship soon. I'm wondering if any of you can lend advice on the bit. They also have the Whiteside Spiral Upcut bit for sale for $50. Any advice on this bit as a good purchase or any others?
  2. My supervisor at work has just ordered a portable panel saw which spurred the conversation of the pros and cons of a panel saw vs. a track saw. Being a novice, I'm pretty ignorant. I have the Kreg track and universal sled for my existing circular saw. But I'm curious for those that have both, and setting cost aside, if you have a panel saw, is there any reason to have a track saw? As always, thanks for the input.
  3. I think I figured it out, I just wonder why it wouldn't just list it as 13 1/2 or 13.5" . Maybe that's the way plans list things with the program he used. Thanks all!
  4. Mark, I'll look into it. Probably on a label somewhere. They were meant to hold printers and computers and monitors and they seem very well made, but your point is well taken.
  5. Ok, thanks. Just measuring twice and cutting once! Anyone on telescoping/adjustable legs?
  6. I'm making the Paulk Workbench and have bought the plans, although I'm making just the workbench top with storage below. I cannot post any of it here to protect his plans. For those of you who have the plans handy, maybe you can interpret something I'm confused on. I'm make the 4 pieces with the routed holes along the edges and interior that provide storage. On piece 5 in the plans, on each of the routed holes he has the following: 1' 1 1/2". I'm perplexed at what dimension this is. Underneath it, it lists 343mm. The lines indicate this may be the rectangle dimension. My thought is that it's a 13" long rectangle before you start the 1/2 circle at each end and that the holes themselves are 1/2" from the edge of each side. Or maybe it's trying to communicate 13.5" is the size of the rectangle? Can someone clear this up for me. I know I'll feel stupid once you explain it, but please do..... Also, I need an idea for telescoping legs for the four corners of this bench to provide stability. They will attach to a 2x4 frame that attaches to the electronic lift bracket. As you may recall from another post, I'm mounting just the worktop to an adjustable height electric lift I was given from a dispatch center. I'll need support at each corner but the legs need to be adjustable so I can take advantage of raising and lowering the table as I see fit for what I'm working on. It has to be a solution with major adjustment, not just a few inches as leveling feet provide. It seems to me this table has a range of about 24 inches of lift so a sliding leg with bolts and wingnuts may work. Appreciate any input here.
  7. Thank you for the good input. I'll abandon that idea.
  8. So I'm totally excited about two new acquisitions from a local dispatch center that is getting a re-model. They are tables that raise and lower to a desired height. One of them I want to take the existing press board off and use as an out-feed table for my PM table saw. The other will be converted to a fabrication table. I plan using just a 4x8 sheet of plywood in a landscape orientation to the table saw. My question is if any of you would recommend those ball bearing swivels so that the piece off-feeding just glides over the balls. (See link) Am I overthinking it? Would those balls get dusty and eventually not roll anymore? Thoughts?
  9. Thank you for posting this. I bought a used PM on CL that had been used only a few times and looks brand new. It came with a PM bit, but I have yet to use it. This is valuable information as I look forward to using it for the first time someday soon.
  10. Trying to get my ducks in a row for my first major project, the WW Miter saw cabinet. This will be my first piece of shop furniture. Being that it's shop furniture, what is the rule of thumb for finishing it? What product would you use? Something easily repeatable, maybe a little waterproofing just in case.
  11. Which vac specifically? That’s my next purchase probably.
  12. Good to know about the Bosch equipment. I’ll start comparing costs. I have a Rigid shop vacuum that has a dust collection bag on it. Even though it’s not as nice as the real thing, it may have to suffice.
  13. I have started my collection and have a used carvex and have a new domino coming. I assume the dust extraction is proprietary, so do any of you have work around using hoses and adapters from less expensive companies?
  14. Ok guys, need some help here. I'm trying to order a Dado insert for that PM 2000b I just bought and hooked up. I found it on amazon and found a returned one that gave me a little discount. It arrives, and it's way bigger than the insert hole, I mean by like 3-4 inches. So I go straight to my saw on the powermatic website and click on accessories and it shows the same "too big" insert. What am I missing here? What I have is 18" x 4.25". The slot on my saw is much smaller.
