    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy. Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    Clearance in BD plane

    Thread Starter: Patrick Chase

    I finally managed to have an honest-to-goodness clearance issue. I've been playing with low-angle frogs in a couple of my smoothers, and had a 40-deg one in my LV custom 4-1/2 last week. I swapped a new blade in while working some Red Alder with a medium cut (several mils, I didn't measure), and...

    Clean up /suck broom

    Thread Starter: Mike Holbrook

It seems that larger capacity vacs suck air through all the dust etc. in the bag and stink things up, even...

    Building Your Own Oneida Realtime Filter Efficiency Gauge

    Thread Starter: Ben Rivel

    After studying the Oneida product page (LINK) and researching around the net I was able to figure out and put together the parts necessary to build my own Oneida Realtime Filter Efficiency Gauge. Its a very simple design and you can buy all the parts on your own for a lot cheaper than their kit. ...

    So...anyway to bypass the local Trotec sales rep?

    Thread Starter: Stan Clewett

    So....I pretty much have my heart set on a Trotec machine. But the issue I am having is that my "local" sales rep...who is 350-400 miles from me...is not moving on the price quote. I have quotes from Epi and UL and have forwarded them to the Trotec rep and he just goes on about how the other two...
