    DIY air filtration unit for <$200

    Thread Starter: Dan Hintz

    As payback to the lasering community, I'm sharing my "plans" (such as they are) for everyone to copy. Well, not so much "plans" as pictures of the completed unit, but it should be obvious how to recreate something similar. Due to poor planning on my part and a lack of any real sleep, I made one...

    Clearance in BD plane

    Thread Starter: Patrick Chase

    I finally managed to have an honest-to-goodness clearance issue. I've been playing with low-angle frogs in a couple of my smoothers, and had a 40-deg one in my LV custom 4-1/2 last week. I swapped a new blade in while working some Red Alder with a medium cut (several mils, I didn't measure), and...

Recently, the trigger switch has been acting up. Today, the saw would not stop when the trigger was released. I finally got the...

    White Oak Trestle Desk Journal

    Thread Starter: Mike Cherry

    The wife is retiring after 20 years in the US Marine Corps. She has requested a desk and I found a design that we both agreed on. She chose white oak because she is from Thousand Oaks, CA. I didnt argue at first because I have seldom used white oak and it seems like a good challenge. After...

    So... collision avoidance?

    Thread Starter: Wade Lippman

    I posted this same question 5 months ago, but will be buying a new car next week and still can't make my mind up. I am getting a Mazda CX3; I chose that because I really need the blind spot monitoring. I don't need collision avoidance or lane departure warning, but since I will be driving this...
