    Lumber Cart

    Smaller sized pieces not full sheets and cut-offs of different shapes and sizes. I normally don't save the small stuff and throw it into a box and give it to this collector who stops by once a week to pick up this other stuff I put out by the curb. I don't glue stuff I plan on possibly taking apart but I also don't like to take it apart unless necessary. The workbench I just sold is a good example of what you are talking about. I had to just about take it completely apart to get it out. I thought it would fit without taking it apart but not a chance. I used screws and no glue on that so it was real easy to do and went right back together. I just had to get the top aligned again because I had the table saw built into it already so I needed to make sure the fence rails were matched up with the cutouts. Took me 45 minutes and I had it all back together including the casters.

    Lumber Cart

    I saw another post about sheet good storage and I didn’t want to hijack that thread so I started a new one. l am starting to get way to clutter with my “sorted out organized” piles of wood. I need to make a cart to put this is and I would like to have it on casters. Rather than list what I want to put in my cart I think I would like to see photos of what others have. I know after I see those I will change my mind on what I want anyway so it will be a waste of time to make a list of what I want. If I decide to go with your cart would you be willing to send me some simple measurements of it so I can make one myself? I also want to be able to get it through a 36” door should I ever move.

    Ok so here are the results. I took measurements on the fence and the blade. All that worry was for nothing!!!
  4. Coop I have a lot of business down there but I don’t share the covers that well unless it’s with my wife and that’s a battle sometimes.
  5. It was cold here also. I think this morning it was around 1 but felt like -11 and low tonight is supposed to be -2. I think right now it is 13 out....heat wave

    Well look what came today! Now after I go run a couple errands I can check the measurements later with this gauge....after I see how to use it.
  7. If you use a brush make sure the brush is wet with water before putting it in the poly IF you are using a water based poly and I use a natural bristle brush. That's how I did these cornhole boards and they turned out ok for my skill level anyway.

    SawStop setup issue

    Well that is good to know because I never thought about that and wouldn't even have thought that far ahead. I did buy the dado brake and insert I just need to pick out a dado set which I think I am going to go with this one https://www.amazon.com/DEWALT-DW7670-8-Inch-24-Tooth-Stacked/dp/B0002ZU6X4/ref=as_li_ss_tl?s=hi&ie=UTF8&qid=1512687796&sr=1-1&keywords=dewalt+dw7670&linkCode=sl1&tag=trentdavisdot-20&linkId=06a4fe387a6631680216b617e48241af

    SawStop setup issue

    Just an update on the blade issue (or non-issue) I have made cuts and I couldn't be happier. I never had more square cuts of wood in my life! I finished putting together the Incra Cross Cut sled and I hadn't made the cut in the board yet. Well after I did I couldn't believe how clean the edge was on the cut and this was done with the blade that came with the saw. Yes I ended up setting mine up on the left side of the blade. I just feel that is more natural to be on that side so that is what I did. I know it should be on the right because it is a left tilt saw but I didn't wanna do it that way. I ended up buying this blade - https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000P4QD3E/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 And no the saw doesn't sit there all the time against the wall...lol I just have it there so its out of the way when not in use. That is why I have everything on mobile bases in my shop. Not much space and I hate clutter.
  10. Thanks Chestnut. I have to say that if anyone has a Grizzly drill press it will work with what they supply you with but not all that great. The T-Slot washers they provide really do not go well with the Grizzly table but they will catch just enough to hold. For me, just enough isn't good because if you have vibration and it comes loose the outcome could become ugly. I would rather just spend $7.95 like I did and buy the correct ones from Grizzly that fit. Anyway this is how good Woodpeckers is in my book. I spoke with them about this and they to agree that it is not that well designed for Grizzly presses. I offered to share the photos of the install of the ones I got from Grizzly under their table so they could possibly come up with something more universal in the future. They were interested in getting the photos and wanted as much info as I could get them along with pictures. Some of you might have saw a post about my troubles with the saw blade and rubbing. I didn't have a gauge dial so I ordered one from Woodpeckers. I think the cost was $279.99 and with shipping I paid $90.00 for it. They made a happy customer out of me!
  11. If you use a liner in the bin it helps balance the air flow to keep liner tight against the walls of the bin. If it didn't have that then the liner would flop around and set the sensor off making you think the bin was full. It would also suck the liner up into the filter. It has a quick disconnect so when you need to empty the bin you just set the hose to the side. As for my first project - well I am not going to impress you with my projects I promise....lol I started working on a cross cut sled a few weeks ago and my business has kept me away and busy from doing much. I am going to finish that, and then I think I am going to build the cabinet for my Kreg router table.
  12. I was a little concerned on how it would handle the flex hose so I only ordered 1 to try it out. It worked well and for limited space helps on storage for sure so I was happy. I ordered 4 more so I can just hook one to each machine that I want to connect to and then just go to the DC. I am going to try the 2.5" today at some point and will let you know how it works.
  13. Correct the filter is right above the inlet and the 3 motors are under the black hood.
  14. So I finally was able to use the DC system and I love it. Huge difference rom what I was used to which was shop vacs. It is not all that loud either I was pretty impressed.
  15. Just about got it finished. I had to order washers from Grizzly so it would mount up to my liking. Just need to get some bolts tomorrow and I will be all set.

    SawStop setup issue

    4 post up I posted a link from a sawstop tech guy. Read the post about Thin Kerf Blades and Riving Knives. You can use the blade you mention if you adjust the riving knife. He explains everything in in great detail on his page.

    SawStop setup issue

    So not sure if anyone else is interested but Travis Davis is the guy I spoke with last from Saw Stop and was really helpful. He has a page that is setup for SawStop owners who can go there for information and I believe he said it is linked to Facebook somehow. I don't have Facebook and I don't know how it works. Anyway I guess he and maybe some others monitor the page on weekends when there is no support available at the company. I thought this was pretty cool and shows how much passion they have for this. https://www.trentdavis.net/wp/2018/08/06/helpful-sawstop-links/ I appreciate all the help from everyone and I guess I can go make some test cuts and see how those come out.

    SawStop setup issue

    Now that I ran the blade up and down and then they had me do it at a 45 it has limited the amount of rub quite a bit.

    SawStop setup issue

    Ok so I am a bit frustrated over this saw to say the least. SawStop called back and said to use the saw that they all rub out of the box like this and that it will go away after some use. He did still suggest getting a good blade because he said they are not in the blade market. My initial question to them was why was I buying a new blade to troubleshoot the saw when they should send me a new blade to do this. Any thoughts were on this blade https://www.woodcraft.com/products/forrest-ww10407125-woodworker-ii-carbide-tipped-circular-saw-blade-10-x-40-tooth

    SawStop setup issue

    So after speaking with SS they have me trying a new blade so I need to run to get that. Any suggestions from those who use a SS on what is an overall good blade for general use? I don't mind buying more than one if I need to but I would like to get something I can pickup today that is of good quality.

    SawStop setup issue

    Well I ran the saw blade up and down and it was zinging as it rubbed a little but quickly started to quiet down. It still rubs a tad So I don’t know what to think. I wish I had a more precise way to measure right now but I will have to wait. On another note the new DC works great and I am real happy with it.

    Ok well I will give it a go. Stay tuned....
  25. Well it sounds like there are many clubs out there. This one does offer additional memberships for carving but I am not going to do that part at this point. They have shop hours 7 days per week and members can use the shop as long as there is a instructor present.
