    Part Deux - The Gennou BTS

    Thread Starter: Stanley Covington

    I am starting a new thread because I need to add a significant amount of new information to my older gennou thread, but if I just appended the old thread, most people would just blow it off as more chitchat. So here goes. History We all grew up using hammers with handles designed to fit a...

    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...

    A new reason (to me) to never own a Porsche

    Thread Starter: Roger Feeley

    My son-in-law has a Porsche Boxter. He drove it to work and parked in the companies underground garage. It wouldn't start. Something is wrong with the charging system and he has a dead battery.

    Buffing questions

    Thread Starter: Aaron Craven

    I've had a few bowls recently that didn't have quite the sheen I wanted (primarily on oil finishes), so I've decided to pick up some buffing equipment. I'm not a big fan of wax for most items, so I'll probably skip the carnauba step (though I'm buying all three wheels in case I change my mind). I...

    Raised panel cutter for shaper

    Thread Starter: Susumu Mori

    Hi all, I have a shaper but for raised panels, I'm still using a router bit (3.5 inch). It runs and cuts fine with a 1/2 inch coupler and at 10,000 rpm. The shaper runs much quieter and smoother. So, I like it but it needs many passes (6-7 passes). I guess my question is, do you think it's...
