  1. I think you need to hit a section with a hand plane then wipe with mineral spirits for us all to see!
  2. I buy my rolls from here. Take old one off and use as a template and mark with Sharpie, then cut - doesn’t take long at all.
  3. Target Coatings is one of the original water-based finish manufacturers. I tried their products and had nothing but bad luck as well as some other people at the same time. I used one of their topcoats and added their cross-linker to it and it dried gritty. They were very hard to get a hold of and I finally was able to talk to the owner who said it was my equipment but it was a Fuji Mini-Mite 4 so I doubt it. When a lot of other people (professionals) started posting the same problems on their forum they finally admitted to having some bad batches. In the end I ended up getting a refund but wasted a lot of time. That was five years ago and I know any company can have bad batches but that was enough for me to never try them again. They’ve been around for a long time so I’m guessing a lot of people are happy with their products.
  4. My butt cheeks were puckered just watching the pics! That worked like a champ.
  5. My Black Friday deal purchase wasn’t that exciting but was needed. I got 4 new tires for my truck and Discount Tire beat Costco by $40/tire plus I’ll get 20% in prepaid MasterCard so I saved some cash.
  6. If you haven’t sanded yet then I wouldn’t worry about it as that will get everything even again.
  7. I use Pcoket to save off pages from the internet and you can organize by tags like “woodworking”
  8. Like Steve showed the FMT can't be used for faces like carcass sides and also not for attaching face frames. The Domino can put a tenon anywhere where the FMT is great for edge and end grain work but not so good for face grain. The Domino is also great for things like picture frame miters, and while you could probably do it with the FMT, it would probably take you a lot of time.
  9. For those of you that have the Domino 500 and thinking about the 700 take a look at the Leigh FMT Pro. I've had this jig since 2007 and the M&T joints it can do and the accuracy are incredible. Leigh makes the best manuals in the business (even better than SawStop) and walks you through every step of the process. I later got a Domino 500 off Craigslist and it along with the Leigh FMT can do any M&T I would ever need.
  10. Steve what are all the good tools that Epstein carries? They have a ton of products but their isn’t isn’t the most organized.
  11. Looks like it's $240 now. I got mine a few years ago for $180 from Carbide Processors using the code 'creekers', back when you could use a code AND still get free shipping.
  12. I agree - with how thick gel stain is I would wait 48-72 hours before applying any topcoats.
  13. Coop he had length in feet so you divide by 12. For length in inches you divide by 144. Also for 6/4 like he has multiply by 1.5.
  14. Made an oversized template then bushing with 1/8” straight bit in router.
