  1. Did you cut it to rough length first?
  2. I'd guess that depends on how much / often you run material. If it's 25bdft here and there and you buy only enough material for each project you might have a good idea.
  3. Newman Whitney rated their quiet cut head at 500,000 bdft between sharpening. No mention of material, but one would assume domestic hardwood.
  4. Normally it would be total bdft in the pile, regardless of surface feet planed. Buy a 2000bdft pack and surface all of it. You just planed 2000bdft. Could gave been 4/4 or 16/4, one pass or three.. Time spent milling also depends on your equipment.. the person with a lunchbox planer and a sled spends a lot more time processing than someone with a 25hp planer, a 7.5hp facer and a 20hp SLR.
  5. That may be the case with FB. IG was great for finding and talking with people with similar interests and a form for getting and giving advice.
  6. No disagreement there. You can learn a lot from a long and sometimes off topic thread. It's also easily found again and referenced if needed. None of that works on ig of fb, but that is where people are. I often can't find a hour old fb post I wanted to reply to (but refreshed automatically out of my feed) without 5-10 minutes of searching. Forget finding something from a month ago. That said you can find the exact topic you are interested in on fb and just join the 27 groups that are dedicated to that obscure thing you are interested in. Between those 27 groups with 30k members each you get 1000 posts a day of possibly interesting content.
  7. Facebook and Instagram won out. Forums are for all intents are mostly dead.
  8. Depending on what you are trying to yield, and if you are concerned about straight and flat. Most s4s is just run through a moulder. It's straighter and flater but not guaranteed to be straight and flat. I can typically net 1" finished (typically. 980") from 4/4 rough stock. To get that from s4s I would be buying 5/4.
  9. Interesting that seems surprisingly low compared to what I'd expect. I haven't run a rk as the Lennox woodmaster ct is available for less than half the cost. Iirc I paid $135 shipped for a 13'8" 1.3t woodmaster ct.
  10. A large number of saws can't tension a 1" carbide blade to 25,000psi (including some felders). The width rating is typically what will fit on the wheel and where it can generally tension a carbon steel blade at 15000 to 20000psi What are you trying to gain with a wider blade? Beam strength increases with width, but you need increased tension to get the performance. Most people go with a 1" carbide because there is no reason to go wider as there is no performance gain. Some would do better with a 3/4" blade and more psi.
  11. I can understand the space issue. No matter how little or how much space is available it somehow gets filled up with stuff. I can also understand someone who is just woodworking as a leisure hobby isn't interested in getting it done as fast as possible. Understandable, we all have a tool priority list. My original point (that has been lost along the way) was that a shaper is a useful shop tool that can fit well in a home shop (and doesn't have to be all that expensive compared to a router)
  12. Except that video *is* of a cabinet shop and they are not running weaver shapers. I think if you look Karl is running 3 or 4 SAC t120s and a older scmi t160.
  13. Jack, nice post edit after the fact there. I'm Not sure where I bragged about having a shaper over there You seem to be reading into things that aren't there, and for some reason irritated by me. The guy asked a question about running production with router vs a shaper. I did say bigger is better in shapers though and ill stand by that statement all day long. But that was a different thread, and this is about shapers in the home shop..
  14. Not saying you don't know what you are talking about. There are about 100 ways to skin a cabinet cat. (Id like that ritter door clamp if i had more space) This was off a woodweb thread. And since you posted a ritter door table, here is a ritter double spindle cope machine.
  15. Different shops different methods. Bigger shops running sticking on a moulder are coping after. Again I didn't come up with it, it just works with my work flow. Sogncabinets (not running a moulder) turned me on to left and right copes. Run sticking, cut to length, cope. Keeps those 3" long rails from being sucked into the head, without having to use a jig. Yes the track feeders or dc70 would work better for shorts.
