    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...

    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...

    Porter-Cable Safety Recall

    Thread Starter: Charles Taylor

    Porter-Cable has issued a safety recall today on the bases of some of its production routers: http://www.portercable.com/SafetyAnnouncements.aspx?BlockID=793bd768-5a32-4761-80df-4849548c80e7 The explanation is that the handles on these bases aren't insulated and thus represent a shock hazard. ...

    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)

    Grizzly vs ClearVue cyclones

    If I recall, the CV design requires just over 3 hp, the next available motor was a 5 hp, so you can't necessarily compare it with other units that may

    reading metric tape measure

    I think if you look at the dimensions for common metric products you will find that they are always stated in mm. Centimeters are a largely unimportant

    How does a whole house fan help if the attic is living space? Does it exhaust outside instead of into the attic? I've personally never seen a whole
