    Since you have already decided on the SS, I will just mention that I had a 50" fence on my Unisaw, and cut it down to about 32", even though I had room. I have only missed it a couple times, and...

    I have seen videos of a table that uses car scissor jacks to raise and lower. You just adjust it with a cordless drill. I believe plans are available.

    Thanks Johnathan,

    I have tried that also. It works, but what I really want is some way to reduce the number of fittings, a blast gate combo that would let me plug in my standard shop vac hose to...

    Not quite on point Ken, but the best thing I did, when I went from my Unisaw to my PCS, was to keep the Unisaw. I put a dado set on it, and am amazed at how many times I have used a dado since doing...

    Two days ago, I had two large boxes of sewer fitting, DC fittings, small blast gates, etc., spread out on my bench, trying for the 50th time to figure out what goes with what.

    Sweet saw. I wouldn't worry about the blade, I have had a thin kerf 100 tooth blade on my 12" DeWalt for years. I would keep the original for construction lumber, not that hard to change out.

    When we moved into this house 8 years ago, I made a deal with my wife. We build my shop first, then I would do whatever she wanted to the house. So, we built my 1600' shop, which is built to house...

    Not an expert, but I have had one. Keep the older one, strip the wings and motor off the newer one, keep the stand from the stripped one for something else, and dump the rest. It sounds like money...

    I have overkill on my shop electrical, with 39 breakers. One thing I did that I think is important is to hopscotch my plugs. Plugs 1, 3, and 5 are on one circuit, plugs 2, 4, and 6 on another. ...

    What is it you are trying to build? Is this for a hobby, or are you trying to do something in particular.

    If this is a hobby, or creative outlet, perhaps you could realign it a bit to something...

    Just my opinion, but renters and European hinges don't mix, especially in less costly rentals. They are too easy to knock off, people lean on the bottom doors, kids swing on them, etc. Then the...

    Poplar frames with 1/4" flat MDF panel. Put a Shaker style bevel on them. On a rental, I would simply make them an overlay door with spring hinges.

    John,

    1" arbor blades are no problem at all to find. A jig for box joints is pretty easy to make for a slider too.

    Very well done Tim. Looks like fun, haven't worked with fiberglass for years, on boats and due buggies.

    You got a very nice finish on the Mark II, looks like a factory job.
