    Hi Michael. There's different ways of doing things, and i'm not expert. A lot depends on your specific needs, and available space, time and budget. My thought would however be to (as you are doing)...

    +1 as earlier that there's a continuum involved in eastern machinery. From very crude, to very decent indeed depending on your needs. The biggest issue (again) is perhaps that it's so hard to figure...

    It'd be a pity to get sidetracked into a this is/isn't good debate - there's inevitably going to be differing views.

    Think it a lot hangs on what i was trying to point to before. It's no problem...

    Must say that while i've no particular knowledge of the various realities other than through observation (and this is a definitely general view relating to no company or individual in particular) i...

    Much like Dan i use carrage bolts on basic stuff that doesn't have to be pretty or need any vibration isolation - dome head down again. The square below (above in this case) the head permits easy...

    Must say my sense John is that it's less about the casters (for sure casters can be sorced that are strong enough to support a saw) than the flatness of the shop floor, and the rigidity of the saw...

    The green system has a similar issue, maybe the following will prompt some ideas. It uses two connector strips secured by set screws, but it's not a great arrangement in that there's more than enough...

    Hi Scott, I've done the weighing deal using a microwave to dry the wood, and have a miniLigno pin meter. Guess I was hoping there might be a more instant and convenient way of getting a meter reading...

    Just by way of a bump, and to add some more information - since presumably there's very few of these kilns about in the US. Pardon another long one.

    I've had no luck again in raising support from...

    Ta Danny. A dehum kiln by holding the interior at a given % RH is presumably self limiting. (for anybody reading that's not familiar - the equilibrium moisture content of wood is determined by the...

    I have a Lignomat miniLigno pin meter i use to double check wood just before use, but given the need to shove pins in to the core it's hard not to think that they are not a whole lot of use until...

    Thanks guys. I'm not expert, but seem to find myself playing around with options - if nothing else there's a few different situations. That LV item looks like a good basis for experimentation Matt....

    Interestingly enough it looks like it's bid up to $2,800 so far. I guess the other side of the money story is that when you have plenty prices may seem quite different. It seems our perception of...

    Must say I've always used a sharp knife, or better still a sharp chisel - sharpeners tend to put too short a point on for my taste for a lot of draughting jobs and the like...

    Hi Matt. I think one basic difficulty with table saw dust collection is that the dust is initially captured in the blade gullets, only to be carried around through the lower chute and up and over the...

    I don't have experience of the RK, but some thoughts based on other blades.

    The material in some of those sorts of tools isn't necessarily the most durable ever (the solid steel ones), so re-sharpening could well be required. I have some that look identical from a UK...
