  1. Somebody owes you a new router bit and possibly a new pair of tighty-whities.
  2. This kind of thread is a great idea.
  3. I have used it at times but very seldom. Mostly run it full speed.
  4. I have way more ROS's then anyone should have but the one I reach for most of the time is my https://www.amazon.com/Makita-BO5041-4000-12000-D-Handle-Random/dp/B0076I69H2/ref=sr_1_2?crid=WLDOB9OGIX3B&keywords=makita+5"+random+orbital+sander&qid=1646058122&sprefix=makita+5+random+orbital+sander%2Caps%2C104&sr=8-2 Makita BO5041 . Hooked up to my shop vac it catches 99% of the sawdust.
  5. Pallet wood isn't entirely useless, made these for some friends & relatives from pallet wood.
  6. I'll pile on to the Simple Green recommendations. I've also found that using one of these brushes makes fast work of cleaning a saw blade,
  7. I think you might be very happy with that Milwaukee 2401-22. I have the 3/8" chuck version of that drill/driver and find myself reaching for it quite often. It's quite light and fits into tight areas nicely when needed. Also, for a 12V tool, I find that it's usually capable of handling any job that I throw at it.
  8. I prefer not to go the low end of the quality scale when it comes to accessories that cut or saw wood. The end results that they provide and the length of service you receive from them far out weight the hurt of the little extra that they cost. For those reasons, Whiteside is my main go to for router bits.
  9. I've never seen the need for an 8" dado set. I've been very happy with the results I get with my Freud SD206 6" dado set. Unless you need to make dados more than 1-1/4" deep a 6" set is all you need.

  11. It's been years since I've thought any of the Black Friday deals were special.
  12. Yup, make your own. You can get as sophisticated or as basic as you want and still not spend anywhere near $60.
  13. Judging by your diagram I'd say that it would be alright the way you have it now. If anything maybe make the drawer under the router a little bit smaller and the router compartment a little deeper. My router table also utilizes the Kreg base. For mine, I used the Kreg designed cabinet that included pull out shelves on the right and left sides used for bit storage. The compartment on mine does not include the drawer design and is much larger that yours however the dust collected in it has always been fairly minimal. My router table is hooked up to my dust collector so that is probably why I don't have a sawdust build-up issue.
