    Trotec VS Epilog (yes, another thread)

    Thread Starter: Ivan Shuliak

    Hi, I know, we've got lots of threads about which one is better but most of them got the same answers: Choose based on support you get from your rep, Trotecs built like tanks, Epilogs are USA made etc. But, having two of Epilog machines (Zing and Fusion M2) I want a Trotec machine, because...

    Plane choice for a beginner?

    Thread Starter: Scott Archi

    So I sold some of my sharpening stones (about $600 worth) and am wanting to invest some of that in a hand plane or two. My dad is letting me borrow his Stanley block plane which I am getting on well with. I want to say it's about 7" long so not a tiny plane. I was making shavings last night 0.0015"...

    Titanic: best movie ever?

    Thread Starter: Ole Anderson

    Flipping channels while on the exercise bike I stumbled across the last 45 minutes of Titanic. Got hooked and watched it to the end. Dang that was a good movie. Probably my 4th time watching it. A&M is running it all day as a Valentine's Day movie.

    New Laguna lathe

    Thread Starter: Greg Parrish

    Received my new 18/36 today. OMG it is so much better than the Nova Comet, and I know that isn't a fair comparison, but it is amazing the difference in experience the extra power makes. I have some fine tuning to do on the layout, location, etc but it's a start. I'll be building a sand box for it...

    Laguna 18bx ?

    Thread Starter: John Sayen

    I was looking at buying the 14 SUV and stumbled across the 18bx. Is the 18bx brand new? I can't seem to find a single review of it online. https://lagunatools.com/laguna-machinery/bandsaws/18bx-bandsaw/ Has anyone seen or read about one? Thank you.

    Racing jacks

    No, they're not the same.
    Most of what is being sold as a "racing jack" is really nothing more than a low profile jack. I have the HF

    DIY Automated Dust Collector System- over my head?

    Yeah, that's where I land. There's no logical reason for wanting to do this at all. My shop isn't a high output production facility, and to Jim's point,
