    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...

    Barber Shop...Do You Use a Real Barber?

    Thread Starter: Rich Riddle

    I am still old school and only go to someone with a "barber" certificate which is different than a beautician where I live.

    Building a J-Class Sailboat

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    While waiting for the egg to hatch (buying a house) I've found myself lost without having something to create. So I decided to build a sailboat. It's going to be a replica of this, except how it looked when first built in 1934: J-Class Endeavour Length - 39.56m / 130ft Beam - 6.80m / 22ft...

    PM 2000 Rail Set - Upgrade??

    $200 for powder coated tube steel seems steep to me for what it is. I'd be more inclined to cut it down and cap off the end. You can always slide the
