  1. A few years ago Half-Inch-Shy made a project with some challenging angles. Not the table top you are doing but perhaps his videos will supply some helpful techniques.
  2. I have a 16" Laguna ( European built ) with a brake and yes I would get a brake again if I had to replace it. And with your daughter in the shop I would consider it a must have.
  3. @Shane Jimerfield At this point I want to sell it all as a single lot - If later I find I need to sell each item individually I'll keep you in mind. And my wife is furious I'm doing this but for the moment I'm hold firm.
  4. Back issues have forced me into this. It's not safe using power tools when concentration is hampered due to pain. I doubt anyone is close enough to me to be interested but thought I would post here first anyway. I'm in southwest Oregon 20 miles from Grants Pass. Want to sell it all in one lot, not interested in selling individual items. $7500.

  5. I agree with @Wdwerker. Shellac flakes are available is several shades - from very blond to ruby. I buy my flakes from
  6. Redwood is a Very soft wood so unless that finish is epoxy it will get dented with use.
  7. @Pwk5017 It is currently on sale for $400.
  8. I have the Incra fence. Their rack system reliably gets me back to the same measurement. I never need to use a ruler.
  9. Better not let your wife see it or it will end up in the house not the shop.
  10. The wider kerf will impact using the track. If the rubber on your track sticks out from the metal a mm or two it may work, however, if you later go back to a Festool blade you will need a new rubber. I have read some have been able to reset the rubber but for others it would not come off in one piece.
  11. That is a copy of a Festool product - can't find it on web site so might be discontinued. I have one and have found it very helpful on a few occasions. But, only a few occasions.
  12. My MFT is Version 1 - After a few use of the angle guide I saw it was not that accurate, took if off and never used it again. I drew layout lines on the work piece, used the Festool circular saw and guide rail - that was better. Anything needing more precision was done on the table saw. These days the holes in the MFT are used solely for clamping, so precision alignment is not important.
  13. Perhaps I'm not thinking it through enough (I'm 78) but could one use current MFT top as guide to make holes for new one?
  14. I have a WorkSharp. It does a very good job and is much faster than stones - for chisels. It seems to give as good of edge as stones but there is not a way to do a secondary bevel. I do have stones and a MK II guide but seldom use them for chisels. I also bought the plane jig for the WorkSharp but I consider it dangerous for a plane blade larger than a block plane. I tried to use it on a smoother blade once and a corner caught, spun the bade and jig and the blade gave me a nasty cut on my hand.
