    I would advise against purchasing a fixed space dovetail jig - they're just too limited. If you really want a jig, get one that has adjustable fingers, as the posters in post 2 and 3 suggest. If...

    You could try brazing it - you wouldn't have to put as much heat into it and a good braze is very strong. There are better welders on the forum than me, but I'd grind out a V shape in the crack and...

    I'm sure you're aware that we went through all of this earlier in the thread. The issue facing LL is whether their product met the standards, not what readings were in any homes. Please review the...

    Perhaps you haven't been following the news on Lumber liquidators. There's a significant number of suits that have been filed against the company. It's possible that the company won't survive.

    Lumber Liquidator's CEO quit today. The stock fell 17% when the news came out. It's about $22, down from about $70 in February.

    If I remember my motor theory correctly, replusion-induction motors have a higher starting torque than a regular induction motor but once they are up to speed, the power is essentially the same as a...

    The one I have, admittedly an old one, does not have the impact function. I have a separate air tool that does impact.

    I use the ones from Lee Valley. I can't imagine what you could do to a ruler to make it worth what Woodpeckers charges.

    I don't use the SawStop blade but I have used it and it was not a bad blade. I had a bunch of blades from my previous saw so I mostly use those.

    By the way, just in case you encounter this issue:...

    I don't remember much of DC motor theory so I'd have to look up your question about DC motors.

    But for induction motors, as you slow them down, the torque remains constant. Horse power, however,...

    My experience with water borne "lacquer" is that it's not as good as solvent lacquer. If I was going to use water borne in a high wear location (maybe a table top), I'd try pre-cat water borne. ...

    Just my opinion, but a scrub plane is not a precision tool. If you can find a Stanley 40 it will do just fine. The only advantage I can see to a LN scrub is that the blade might be better than the...

    I think that's pretty unusual, Mike. 120V times 15 amps is 1,800 watts. A HP is about 750 watts but there are losses in the motor, plus a power factor issue. In my experience a good efficient motor...

    I was just thinking - with no ground on the secondary, you would not get a shock to ground. You could only get shocked if you touched both wires and the potential is only 110V which is not as...

    I went with the 12V Li ion tools mainly because they're much lighter than the NiCad tools. They're not as powerful as the 20V tools but for furniture work they're more than sufficient.

    Thanks for the information everyone. That's very interesting - I've always wondered how 220V (or 230V) was brought into the home (in places other than North America). From what everyone is saying,...

    As you know, when you transform 3-phase in voltage, you actually use three transformers, one for each phase. So as I understand what you're saying, they wire the secondaries in a wye and ground the...

    I'm not understanding. The service to the neighborhood I assume is at some high voltage in a 3 phase wye configuration. Then, they probably take one phase, put it through a transformer to bring it...
