    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...

    Would 2 jointers be useful? or excessive?

    Thread Starter: Mark Gibney

    I'm milling a bunch of cherry for a job. My 16" jointer with straight knives works fine for flattening one side before the boards go to the planer, but not so great for truing an edge. The reason is the blades are getting dull. Well, it takes me so long to change out the knives I just can't take...

    Our daughter works in the accounting department's revenue division for one of the major airlines. She has to deal daily with credit card fraud as it pertains to that business where she interfaces between the company and the issuing banks. In conversation this morning she told me how the two...
