    Yet another shop build.... McFarlane

    Thread Starter: mark mcfarlane

    After a 9 month battle with the local water district over an easement, we started clearing the land for my new shop today. It was amazing to watch these guys clear the land. We had three 80-100' pine trees removed and about a dozen smaller ones. One of the tall trees was 2 feet off my...

    Anyone Using Cutlist Plus Software?

    Thread Starter: Ben Rivel

    Anyone out there using Cutlist Plus (LINK)? Thinking about purchasing the Silver edition but wanted to hear from any who have been using it and what they thought. There doesn't seem to be too much out there around the net at far as reviews go on this type of software. I know there is also Maxcut...

    Return Stanley 750 Chisels?

    Thread Starter: Steve Mathews

    I'm considering returning the new Stanley 750 chisel set purchased a few weeks ago and replacing them with something of better quality.

    Lesson Learned: Ordering Glass

    Thread Starter: andrew whicker

    I ordered some tempered .25" thick glass for a coffee table. The coffee table design has a small shelf and a large top. The glass shop etched in their logo on the small piece. Apparently, since the glass was small the company assumed it was for a window and intentionally etched their logo on...

    Dovetail Guide comparison

    Thread Starter: allen long

    Has anyone had a chance to compare David Barron's magnetic dovetail guide to Lee Valley's version. They look quite similar. Yeah, yeah, I know I should practice dovetails strictly by hand, but David's demo at handworks was pretty slick. I would normally go with his guide, but I spent way too...

    Keyless ignitions

    Thread Starter: Stephen Tashiro

    If a car has a keyless ignition, must you be sitting in the drivers seat to start the car? I hope never to own a car with a keyless ignition, but some rental cars have keyless ignitions so I may have to deal with that feature. If I am inside my house with my non-keyless electronic keys in my...

    Dust Bin Fill Gauge

    An air leak that size might not cause a real issue but then I would not be worried about it too much if it did because I vent my cyclone to atmosphere.

    E.A. Berg chisels dull extremely quickly - what am I doing wrong?

    An edge that rolls is more likely to be soft steel (or too low a bevel). An edge that is serrated (perhaps due to the honing media) is more likely to

    Felder vs AL-KO DC

    What are the relative advantages/disadvantages compared to cyclones (oneida or clearvue) or felder RL-series?

    Felder vs AL-KO DC

    I honestly cannot see where the advantage is over a cyclone, especially if the cyclone can be vented to the atmosphere.

    Dust Bin Fill Gauge

    Typically, any air entering the cyclone bin, such as from a poor seal on the lid, will cause sawdust to be blown into the filters making a horrible mess.
