    Amen. But those could be users if they're cleaned up well.

    I went and looked at your work, John. You do some excellent work - it looks like you have some real artistic talent - which I'm sadly lacking.

    To my mind, the chevalet is the non-electric (manually powered) equivalent of a scroll saw. Physically big and expensive. Takes some time to learn how to use it, also. Unless you really want to go...

    I use veneer tape on my marquetry and remove it with water and never had any problems. If you think the glue (actually hide glue) is in the pores of the wood, take a brass bristle brush and scrub...

    If I had the money and the space, I'd have both a SawStop and a slider. But space is a real problem (well, money is also a problem) so I stick with my PCS SS and a track saw.

    It's unlikely that you have a single RFID card in your wallet. The chips in credit cards are contact cards.

    +1 That's not a good job for a scroll saw. And it would be too slow. Band saw and a rasp would be better. Even a jig saw and rasp in a pinch.

    I have a PCS SS and love it. I bought it as insurance against the possibility that one day I'd make a mistake.

    But I agree that a good slider is equally safe. Sliders are usually physically...

    I guess I went into a buying phase when I started woodworking. But then I noticed that I wasn't using some of the tools and I could achieve the same thing with some other tool. So I started cutting...

    Wow, those are beautiful. Not something I should have because I'd never be able to keep them that nice looking.

    Those should go to a collector.

    +1 I used to have a builder's level (a transit level) but it takes two people to use it. And you have to be careful to level it and not kick one of the legs by accident when you're using it. ...

    Take an old chisel and use the side of it to scrape the glue off. Easy and works great.

    You don't have to make the mortise wider than the Domino. But there's a reason some people do it. Let's say you're putting in five Dominoes across a board. If your layout is exact, it all goes...

    The main reason you generally have to upgrade is because MS will no longer support the older version. And that's important for security updates.

    In general, I do a lot of mortise and tenon furniture. Making tenons is easy on a table saw, but making mortises is difficult except with a horizontal slot mortiser. The Domino is basically a...

    I have it on all my computers and like it. No problems at all. Of course, I liked 8.1 after I got rid of the Metro interface.

    It's enough like 7 and 8 that it's easy to make the transition.

    I have a mahogany project that I'm doing right now and I need genuine mahogany to complete it. The other "mahogany" will not match what I have already done.

    Get a Ridgid. If you shop for them at Home Depot, they will have shelf labels that tell you how much suction and noise each has. Definitely get a quiet one.
