    Got the drum sander in. It is surprising how much abrasives weigh if you get enough of them in a small footprint.


    Do you have build plans for that cabinet?  That is awesome!  And your new shop space is a dream shop!  Congratulations!

    Thank you for this guidance. I have a question for you. I'm planning to buy a nail gun soon. ^_^ Is there a type you recommend? I'm planning minimal designs in my house this summer. This looks like it will work for me. I'm looking for something that is solid and can work carefully. Do you have a suggestion? Respects... :)

    I like the Senco Nailers!   I have a dealer within walking distance from my shop and I like to support local business.   However, I have heard that the Grex Nailers are the cat's meow.  I have never tried one but they get great reviews.

    Based on some helpful recommendations here, I put one of the in-line router table extensions on my SawStop PCS. Now I need to get a 3hp or so router that will fit in the dust collection box that came with the unit. Based on previous threads, it is my understanding that the Triton is too large to fit. Does anyone have a router that fits in the box that they are happy with? I already have a plunge router, so this would be dedicated to the router table.

    I have been looking at the Bora Portamate router, they sell it as a motor only at Woodcraft and it is on sale right now for $219.00.

Hey guys here is a shot in the dark and maybe someone has a Lie Nielsen No 7 sitting around collecting dust that you are not using.  If that describes you hit me up.  I am not desperate for one so I will not be paying the inflated eBay prices  Rolleyes   Just hoping I can find a guy willing to part with one at a fair price.

    Thank you!

    Very, very nice! I am planning on doing basically the same thing. It was nice to see where some of the bumps are going to be.

    I look forward to seeing your project!  Word of advice, get help for the top glueup if you are going to make it 4" thick like I did :)

In my basement shop, I have the Harbor Freight Mats and I wear Crocs.  I have worn all kinds of different footwear in the shop and have found the Crocs to be the best for all day comfort!  It's like you are walking on a pillow.  I have always dismissed Crocs because I have always thought that they are the ugliest footwear out there, but for me in the shop they work!

    Just curious on ppls opinion of Laguna tools what you like what you dislike? What tools would be worth looking into? What machines stand out among the rest? Just curious!

    I have the 18BX Bandsaw and it is the best bandsaw I have ever had.  I also have their 3hp cyclone Dust collector and it is also a winner.  I have been looking at their lathes at Woodcraft but I don't do enough turning to justify the purchase.

    I've always been curious how those chain drives perform over time.  Even though the opening is on the bottom it looks like it will collect a lot of sawdust.


    Lie-Nielsen has been making these for years now and I have never heard of dust being a problem with their chain drive mechanism.   If I encounter any problem like that, I will just blow out the cavity with compressed air re-oil the chain and make a removable cover for it.
