    Is the table saw (non sawstop) the most dangerous tool in the shop?

    Thread Starter: Michael Yadfar

    I've been thinking to myself about what the safest and most dangerous tools are in the shop. Someone told me bandsaw was the most dangerous once, but I think that may be the safest saw in the shop. It's hard to determine the safest because all power tools are dangerous, but I think the most...

    Buying a house is so frustrating!

    Thread Starter: Brian Elfert

    I'm trying to buy a house, but any decent inexpensive houses are selling like hotcakes. I was supposed to go look at a house with a 40x80 outbuilding tomorrow, but it sold already. (Priced at $199,000 and the building alone is probably $100,000 to replace.) There are quite literally zero houses...

    Is it time for a Mac?

    I'm still shopping for a laser. How do you set the focus on a Chinese laser cutter if you don't have an up/down motorized table? The laser I like wants $500 more for the up/down table and I think I can just block up the rotary fixture with a simple jig I could put in place of the knife bars. I just...

    Grizzly vs ClearVue cyclones

    Thread Starter: Mike Suiter

    I'm going to put a cyclone in my new 30x40 shop I'm building and finally retire my HF DC (it just won't die). I've been doing a lot of searching and it pretty much seems that anyone that has a cyclone loves it no matter what brand. I've decided my choice will be between the Grizzly G0441 and the...

    Buying houses... Brian was right :-/

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    Elfert was right, what a royal pain this has been. Although SWMBO and I have discussed moving to a new place in passing many times over the last few years, I suddenly got a burr up my butt a couple of weeks ago. So we looked on Zillow, did a little market research, and took a long drive to see...
