    2nd Build (first) - CNC Router

    Thread Starter: David Falkner

    Building my 2nd CNC first, I hope. I have been researching for over a year, read a thousand threads and articles, and am hopefully building my 'second machine' for my first. There is still a ton to learn and that process will probably never stop. Of this I am certain, I will be in new territory...

    My First Workbench Build - A Journal

    Thread Starter: Eric Schubert

    Welcome to my journal thread for my very first major build: a workbench! I plan to add photos and updates as I make progress on the bench build, which may or may not be frequently.

    What are Your other Hobbies

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    Besides woodworking, what are your other "hobbies?" A closely related one to woodworking for me is restoring old woodworking machines (owwm).

    MINIMAX FS-35: Planer Speed

    Thread Starter: John TenEyck

    Anyone know if the planer speed can be reduced w/o major rebuild? The stock speed is about 30 fpm, and my nearly 4 hp machine bogs down if I try to take off more than about 1/32". This seems rediculous to me. If I could cut the speed in half cut quality would improve and I'd be able to take off...

    Takeover ad on SMC

    Thread Starter: Myk Rian

    You have a problem with one of your advertisers. 3 times yesterday I got an ad with sirens, pop-up windows, virus warnings, etc. Had to Ctrl-Alt-Del to the Task Manager to shut the browser down. I know I'm not the only one as I brought up the question on another forum, and got a few responses...
