    Of course, every time you use the card, the merchant pays a fee. Actually, the fee is deducted from the amount of the purchase. So if you buy something for $100, the merchant doesn't get $100 from...

    I agree with Matt. If the 3-phase motor is in good shape, I'd get a VFD. If you ever scrap the sander, keep the VFD for use on some other tool in the future.

    Just in case anyone doesn't know, your liability for use of your card by theft of your card is limited to $50 - and most of the time, that is waived. If the thief only steals your credit card...

    The problem is if you are traveling. You're in some other town and your card has been cut off. It's really nice to have a backup card.

    Or, you go to buy gas and your card is rejected. You don't...

    Like others, I have three. One I use only for online purchases, one for all in person purchases, and one for my woodworking (to make tracking expenses easier).

    One thing you might do is look in the craigslist of the place where you're going to see if tools you would want are available.

    I don't know anything about that surge protector, but it might be more effective to put a surge protector just on the lathe, rather than trying to do surge protection on the whole panel. I don't...

    Around here, when they have an estate sale, you have to get there early, way before the opening bell. You either sign in or they give you a numbered ticket. Then, at the opening time, the people...

    You can make a brass plane adjusting hammer pretty easy. Just buy some brass bar stock and turn it into a hammer (Online Metals is one source). Search the forum for brass hammer and you'll find...

    When I first read your posting, I thought you were gluing the veneer down to the substrate, then routing the design into the veneer and insetting the contrasting wood. But it may be that you're...

    Anybody know when it will be available? I hear it's $999.

    Looking at the video, one thing that might be a problem is that it might get in the way of other use of the saw. It doesn't look like it...

    Lacquer thinner just evaporates, as far as I know. I've never heard of neutralizing it.

    The problem with Festool, like many tools that fall into that category, is that they will come out with new (improved) versions of their products - which will tempt you to upgrade:). Sort of like...

    I don't know how thick the pieces are, but I put down some 3/4" solid oak flooring without T&G on the ends (but with T&G on the sides) and it was fine. I did it with raw wood and sanded it after the...

    I usually make the breadboard end a bit long to begin with - and this makes sense if you're doing it when things are dry. Then when the humidity increases and the top expands, things are lined up. ...

    You glue the center mortise and tenon. The outside mortise and tenons are not glued. The glued joint keeps things in place. This is also why there are usually an odd number of tenons.

    I agree. Box joints are a power tool joint. If you're going to do the joinery by hand, I'd sure do dovetails. Stronger and better looking.

    Yes, you need to leave room for expansion - the top will change size but the ends will stay the same length. But since you have it already done, I'd trim some off the side of the tenons rather than...

    I never heard of this, and would be suspicious of any provider who wanted to administer "tests" themselves. Sounds like they just want to make a few more dollars.

    Okay, I understand. But I'm not sure it would be a problem. Let's say that you have a subpanel and you wire it up with 4 gauge wire. So that's a 4 gauge for each hot, a 4 gauge for the neutral,...
