  1. Thanks guys. Right now, the only pieces without wheels are the jointer and my Roubo work bench. Just ordered the heavy duty Portamate for the jointer. The Roubo can be disassembled. None of my current vehicles are capable of towing a trailer that would be large enough to handle the equipment I had planned on taking off the table saw wings and the in/out feed tables for the planer
  2. I am beginning to prep for a move from WA (Tacoma) to Wisconsin (Waukesha). I have been wrestling with the idea of how to move the equipment that I have accumulated. Some background. I have a SawStop PC, Laguna 18 HD, Laguna 14 BX, Powermatic 12 Inch Helical jointer, a Powermatic 20 helical planer, a 19/38 belt sander, a Jessem routertable, a Clearvue dust collector, plus various odds and ends. I acquired these over the last couple of years while I had the cash flow to support my hobby/habit. Many suggest just selling off your equipment, and buying new when you get to your next location. I will not be in that position as I am now retired and my significant other keeps a little closer watch on the bank balance. So moving is what suspect I have to do. Options that I can think of are: rent a Penske 26-28 foot truck, load, drive, unload myself - with a little help on both ends. Problem with this idea is that I cannot find a truck this size with a lift gate, They have them for local use, but not one way trips. So now I would have to rent a fork lift - which I have no experience with Using PODS. I have done this furniture and household goods with good results, but not sure about heavy and somewhat fragile equipment. Using a moving company has been suggested to me. I have significant reservations about this idea, but if anyone has had a good experience, please speak up. Thoughts?
  3. get the sheets, fold in half, fold in half again, and either tear or cut along the creases
  4. Clear Vue would be my rec for dust collection
  5. I got my PCS from here SawStop - Product Brand - This IS Woodworking I live in a state that has onerous sales tax.
  6. as above, or go 6" all the way to the machine. I have a Clearvue, with 6" ducting to most machines. Some have dual 4", or a 5 and a 4 on the SawStop
  7. I just finished a project using Target's Emtech EM8000cv with good results. Also new to HVLP and surprised myself with the result
  8. Currently live in the PNW, and have two really good sources for any type of hardwood I want to build with. We are considering moving to Prescott, AZ. I am wondering what is available in the area. I would consider Phoenix as very reachable any info would be appreciated
  9. Lamps (woodturnerswonders.com) I got one of the Super Nova's when I felt like splurging. After six months I got two more. Super bright, accurate color, long neck and cord. Very well thought out product
  10. up until recently, Laguna support has been helpful. Not so much recently. Covid makes for a great excuse
  11. I want to try a Target finish for a dining table going into an RV. It will be exposed to warm plates, water, alcohol, and sunlight. I tried calling Target for guidance, but got an answering service with no call back in three days. I am thinking EM8000 with crosslinker If it matters, the center of the table is maple with a thin wenge accent stripe, with cherry outer end
  12. Thanks for the Marc Adams/Mitch Kahonek recommendation
  13. When I decided to get serious about my woodworking (and had the time) I went to a 12 week course to get myself grounded in the fundamentals. Now I can build things reasonably well, but my finishing sucks. Does anybody know of a course for finishing? I have been looking, but not having much success I am interested in coloring wood, pore filling, and spraying finishes - oil and water based
