  1. This kind of thread is a great idea.
  2. I have used it at times but very seldom. Mostly run it full speed.
  3. 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.
  4. Pallet wood isn't entirely useless, made these for some friends & relatives from pallet wood.
  5. 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,
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. 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.

  10. It's been years since I've thought any of the Black Friday deals were special.
  11. Yup, make your own. You can get as sophisticated or as basic as you want and still not spend anywhere near $60.
  12. 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.
  13. I get my sanding supplies from Industrial Abrasives, https://www.industrialabrasives.com/sanding-sleeves-replacement-abrasive-spindle-sleeves-c-77_99.html?zenid=057v44k6hebdjeiqoooh8sjhf0
  14. I purchased one of those a while back when they first came out, mine doesn't have the side shelf. I've been very happy with it so far with not a single thing to complain about. They are very well built.
  15. +1 I have a hose reel in my shop and also one in my garage. Replaced both over time with the Flexzilla reel and hose unit and like them better than the old rubber hose ones.
  16. In the past I've had some of those pads just fall apart from use. A phone call to the company was all it took to get some FREE replacements sent my way.
  17. I don't normally put very much stock in Amazon rating however the ratings on this drill press seem to suggest it's probably very ordinary and average at best. See for yourself; https://www.amazon.com/JET-JDP-17MF-354169-Drill-Press/dp/B00004T9L0/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=jet+354169&qid=1573498060&sr=8-1
  18. As mentioned, there many books out there that are worth buying. One that I've found helpful is New Woodworker Handbook by Tom Hintz, https://www.amazon.com/New-Woodworker-Handbook-Spending-Working/dp/1565232976/ref=sr_1_2?keywords=tom+hintz&qid=1570302356&sr=8-2
  19. I own the Baileigh TS-1040P-50 Cabinet Saw. I purchased it in May of 2018 and have nothing but positive things to say about it. The fit and finish are top shelf along with the performance. Assembly was very straight forward and easily accomplished by myself. The only help I needed was getting the crate into my shop and positioning the saw on the mobile base I had purchased for the saw. Baileigh does have a warehouse/showroom about 100 miles from my home so I was able to actually see and put my hands on their products before buying. Everything I looked at was built solidly and in my estimation with high quality materials.
  20. I've had very good luck with these bags; https://woodworker.com/14-diameter-x-31-plastic-dust-bag-mssu-893-247.asp
  21. Powermatic makes excellent table saws as does SawStop and Delta, and quite a few others companies. Companies such as Jet, Grizzly, Baileigh, Laguna, Shop Fox all offer cabinet saws with more competitive pricing structures. Pretty much all of the cabinet saws out there will provide a hobbyist user with excellent results.
