  1. Got the 3 1/2 hp Milwaukee from Acme. Their website was overwhelmed but got a phone order in after a 20 minute wait!
  2. Thanks, Trying Acme - unfortunately their website won't accept the order. With a little luck I might be able to get them via phone!
  3. Is anyone else finding a shortage of 3 hp routers? I just ordered a Jessem router table and lift and cannot find anyone that has a 3 hp Milwaukee or Porter Cable router that's in stock anywhere. Any leads are appreciated.

    Shaper Origin

    I believe that they were recently purchased by the same parent company that own festool and sawstop.

    Shaper Origin

    I just ordered a Shaper Origin for a special project. I am excited to say the least! Does anyone here have one? I am anxious to see projects that other people have made.

  7. I would love to see your ramp that you built as I am preparing to do mine.
  8. Does anybody know where Jet Machines are made? I was planning on purchasing one and wonder if there is the same issue.
  9. Hi, Just curious does the metal sheeting substitute for a vapor barrier? I did the same ceiling in my shop and added one. I am now wondering if it was unnecessary.
  10. I went with the Jet 1640EVS as Jet just had their 10% off sale.
  11. I want to get into turning. I am interested in doing everything from bowls to table legs. With a budget of $2500 what lathe would you recommend?
  12. Hi All, Is anyone going to Festool Connect in Lebanon, IN tomorrow?
  13. How thick are the doors? I was thinking you might be able to put euro hinges on the warped door to adjust it to improve how it closes. You could leave the current hinges on and disconnect them from the cabinet.
  14. I would put a latch on the inside of the upper part of the warped door to hold it closed. You would open the other door first and then reach inside and unlatch it to open the warped door.
  15. Luckily I purchased the warranty for my HF dust collector. The first one lasted 6 months! I'm on 4 years plus on the second one!
  16. I have a 36 mm festool hose on my boom arm. I would like a way to use this with both my tracksaw and sanders. Does anyone know of an adapter that works for this? Thanks, Mark
  17. So sorry for your loss! Thoughts and prayer to you and your family!
  18. Do a YouTube search for Chad Stanton. He has many projects that can be done without power tools. Also look for the I can do that series. I believe it is from Popular Woodworking.
  19. No specific experience, was just concerned about the description. Although seeing that its 11 ply, its likely better than I thought.
  20. I think you would be extremely disappointed with the phenolic! Reading the description it's intended use is for concrete forms. I do not believe the quality of this would be very good for shop furniture.
  21. Just curious, did you consider making it so it would not self destruct? Would if have been possible to glue the top up with the grain all running the same direction? I wonder how others on the board would have approached this problem. Veneer maybe?
  22. I recently saw this picture on Facebook and thought it would be fun to make one. Does anybody know what these are called or where to find build plans? Thanks, Mark
  23. I emailed the guy asking the model number. He didn't know the model number. Although he offered to reduce the price to $50!
