  1. I've been there too. But unfortunetly I thought it was an Eagle America tool store. I was in the market for some cheap router bits and was out of luck. But you're right It is a great store and they sell used machinery also.
  2. Sanding works great because you never really change out those inserts as often as you think you will. I generally just pivot the table slightly with each hole that needs a backer. If it does become too cumbersome to sand each one, you can cut the hole shallower and use set screws from underneath to balance it out
  3. I have a grizzly 8" joiner that I like accept for one thing. There is no adjustment to keep the Joiner coplaner. It's promoted as being set exact in the factory and never needing adjustment. The outfeed bed sags about 0.002" and there's nothing I can do about it. I'm perfectly OK with that as long as it doesn't get worse. Time will tell
  4. I'm an infant at building projects of my own design. Up until now I've mostly built projects from someone else's plans. My current project is a toy box for my son. The design I've come up with has all four sides constructed with a stile and rail configuration, and raised panels adorned inside. These four faces are joined at the corners by posts that are mortised to accept the tenons at the end of the rails. My question is, Do I construct the panels (minus glue) then cut the mortise and tenons joining the rails to the corner posts or Do I cut the mortise and tenons joining the rails to the corner posts, then size out the stiles and panels. The first option introduces possible squaring problems and the second has possible gapping problems between the stiles and rails. If I do it perfect either option would work, but that's a big IF with me. Thanks Brentt Phillips
