  1. WOW! Unbelievable work my hats off to you sir.
  2. Awesome work Joe, question what is the screw for? Or are you just seeing if you can I'm just curious?
  3. I just bought one bosch 1617 Only after I found this base plate Jasper Base Plate With centering pin https://www.woodcraft.com/search?q=Item++144931&button=search it fits about a million different routers ( I might be exaggerating a bit ) but it fits the Bosch 1617 and accepts the PC bushings with a centering thing-a-ma-bob and a bunch of flat head screw that fit a gillion different routers
  4. Epoxy paint from a marine company like Total Boat they seem to be big in the marine community. Maybe even fiber glassing this part that will never be seen. The cheapest solution be what wtnhighlander suggested plastic laminate I go to a business that sells and installs plastic laminate and buy some of their remnants they usually sell them for a reasonable price watch a couple You Tube videos and it will take any of the mystery out of it a trim router would be very helpful in this process.
  5. I would love to see the bid sheet for that commission, you would need a fat wallet to own that screen!
  6. When I want a smooth no tear out cut I lower my blade so only about 1/8" is above the table saw I run the piece through the saw then raise the blade above the thickness of the piece I'm cutting and run it through and wah-lah no tear out ever. Yes it takes a little longer per cut but, so is changing blades I use a combo blade exclusively.
  7. On my router table my DC is inside a boxed in chamber the DC hose is attached to a Y that goes to my fence DC it works great I love it. Now is it necessary, probably not as I used my router in a piece of plywood that I made into a router table. I used it like this for at least 25 yrs (I was always going to build a proper router table but the make shift table got the job done) but the new table with DC and a nice fence with DC is the best makes me wonder why I waited so many yrs.
  8. Darn, I loved my porter cable router, I guess I'll just have to find a new favorite. I dropped my PC router off my bench it still works but it doesn't sound good anymore I've had this one for at least 10yrs. Thanks for the info guys!
  9. I've been trying to replace my 690 router a few months ago couldn't find one. I thought it might be the supply chain or Covid but, there doesn't seem to be any Porter Cable routers for sale has anyone heard what the problem is?
  10. That is a nice little tool, my Jet 16-32 came with that little tool yours looks just as good. Being a guy with big ham hands I have trouble with getting that end on correctly I couldn't do it without the tool, just the cussing and swearing would be heard around the entire neighborhood
  11. I like it easy fix. It seems I remember some company or other that made a similar product for a ridiculous price! Thanks
  12. I have a similar drill that I use for sanding bowls on my lathe I've never used it foe drilling or driving screws yet. It works well for sanding tasks.
  13. It looks like 42" Coop https://www.homedepot.com/p/Husky-46-in-Adjustable-Height-Work-Table-with-2-Drawers-in-Black-HOLT4602B12/312063230?mtc=&cm_mmc=-71700000034362733-58700003947733508-92700062693995770&msclkid=33d1b7cfb1dd1db1b0c2d65d24c135f9&gclid=33d1b7cfb1dd1db1b0c2d65d24c135f9&gclsrc=3p.ds

    I've read that peppermint oil (where to find peppermint oil, I have no idea) it seems spiders don't like peppermint. I did a search because I have the same problem in my shop as you I've never tried this method, I would be interested in how you solve this infestation good luck.
