    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    Thread Starter: Ed Gibbons

    Spent some time in the ER and ended up seeing a hand surgeon. Just nicked the tip of my finger. Didn't look pretty but prognosis is good. Surgeon said that most table saw injuries happen after years of operation. Rookies are more focused but experienced woodworkers become too comfortable. I fit...

    Hot Hide Glue Question

    Thread Starter: Mike Henderson

    When I do a project such as a chest of drawers, I usually use half blind dovetails to attach the bottom to the sides. I'm attempting to learn more about hot hide glue and want to do a project using it. Note the word "hot" for the hide glue. I'm not looking to use liquid hide glue, I want to use...

    Are these wood prices out of line?

    Thread Starter: Allen Bookout

    I need to find a place to buy good wood. I live about twenty miles north of Fort Myers Florida and Alva Hardwoods east of Fort Myers is about the only supplier around here that I know of. I would think that there would be some suppliers in the Tampa area but if these prices are reasonable I would...

    Impact driver for cabinet building

    Thread Starter: Terry Thillemann

    What's a good impact driver for building cabinets, assembling workbenches, etc.? I had my eye on the Dewalt dcf895d2 but am going to buy the Festool 150/5 and vacuum soon so I was wondering how the Festool driver stacked up. The Festool comparison video I found on YouTube was fairly old so I'm...

    Did oldtime craftsman flatten their plane irons?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    This morning I found myself wondering how much of our sharpening ritual is modern "druthers". Specifically, did our ancestors spend much time flattening and polishing the back of plane irons and chisels to a mirror finish? Or did they get them "sorta flat", polish to maybe the equivalent of 220...

    Wallets with RFID electronic blocker type materials?

    Thread Starter: Don Morris

    My leather bifold wallet with coin holder is starting to come apart at the seams. I'm not real interested in looks or name, but I've seen enough of the warnings about being able to read credit cards through unprotected leather that I'm considering paying the extra for that added protection. The...

    format for cabinets and other things.

    If you're going to use a 4x4 machine, you might as well cut your parts on a table saw, as your going to have to cut the sheets into thirds anyway before

    Ouch--Getting Saw Stop

    I use a 'little wizard" metal detector to check questionable wood before cutting (Paul Marcel's youtube video turned me on to them). Lot's of guys

    Delta Industrial Unisaw

    I don't a $1000 Is going to get this saw in the shape it's in. It's worth the $1500 and forget the bragging rights. If it's coming out of a hobby shop

    Half Sheet Sander

    Did you have identical sandpaper in the two you tested at home? I wouldn't base my opinion on two different grits when comparing sanders. Even that small
