    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...

    How big is your house

    Thread Starter: Jerome Stanek

    I have been following the house thread and was wondering how the size of the houses are around the country. I see some have a house over 2000 sq. ft and they say that is to small for a family of 3 and others have a 1500 sq ft house and a family on 5. I have a 1600 sq ft house and only 1 an 1/2...

    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...

    What to use for mitre bar stock? (Votes: 74)

    1. Anything other than $40 worth of Incra mitre bars is not worthy of your crosscut sled. (Votes: 6)

    2. Not worth $40, but you really should take the time to drill/tap steel bars for your sled. (Votes: 13)

    3. Run what you brung, square the sled to the blade, shoot some brads, countersink, move on. (Votes: 41)

    4. You are over-thinking this in a big way. Nothing to see here, move along. (Votes: 11)

    5. Carrots and peas. (Votes: 3)

    Band Saw Blues

    Based on your budget, have you considered the current (new) Craftsman 14" saw? It appears to be (down to the manual) a Rikon 10-321 and all Rikon

    I know the refresh rate will be slow. I'm OK with that. The question is, what would it take, other than a computer, a camera, and modem of course, to
