    Julie - do you mean that residential installations in your area are horizontal? Or only commercial? Or is it hospitals?

    Around here, outlets are installed vertically with the ground down in all...

    It looks like they didn't do a ground connection. I didn't listen to it - just looked at it on mute - so maybe they have the ground connected to the box and that connects to the ground through the...

    In some of Europe - I'm not familiar with all of it - the secondary of the power transformer is 230V and that is brought into the residence. Neither side is grounded, they don't have a center tap...

    Maybe I don't understand what you mean. I thought you wanted to have a system similar to what we have now, with 120V and 240V, but not have the center tap grounded. My comments are for such an...

    There's a good reason for having the system with a ground. Suppose we had an ungrounded system, with the secondary of the power transformer as it is today, center-tapped to provide both 120V and...

    I took the 1" blade off the band saw yesterday and folded it as shown in the video and it folded very easily. Thanks, John, for posting that.

    I guess I was worried about nothing.

    And if you want a really expensive scroll saw, look at the Eclipse:) Only $1,750 new. There used to be a waiting list of people to buy those.

    What I like to do is use a large red felt tip pen and color the white wire red on both ends of the run - just so the next person who comes along doesn't think it's a 120V circuit. I also use a fine...

    You can move a MM pretty easy with the tool that they provide with the saw (and the wheels at the back of the saw). The only reason I can think of for putting casters on it is that the back wheels...

    Unfortunately we hear stories like that all too often - someone who has lots of experience and just makes a mistake. Who knows why? Maybe tired, or...

    That's not a bad price based on what I see reclaimed wood going for around here. I don't understand it, but some people really like that old distressed wood.

    I have a MM20 built in 2004. It is between 78 and 79 inches tall. The blade guide does not extend above the top of the saw even when raised to maximum height.

    But my MM20 only has a resaw...

    I have the LN 1/8", the LV 1/8" and an antique (Molson Brothers?) 1/8". All are good. The LV probably keeps an edge longer than the others but I often use the antique just because it's an antique....

    It sounds like you want to piggyback on an existing 30 amp breaker by adding the 12 gauge circuit to your saw. Your saw only requires a 20 amp breaker so you want to know if this will work.

    I think $20,000 for a horse is very low. Around here, people have to find boarding space which is pretty expensive per month. Add feed, vet cost, tack, etc. you're way over $20K in no time at all. ...

    I do both - start on the near side or on the back side - depending on how high the wood is in my vise, and how I'm feeling. I haven't seen much difference in the two techniques, at least for me.

    I don't know about the color, but I have a Jet 1236 and it's been a good lathe. Note that turning for me is a part of furniture making and I don't turn as a major part of my woodwork.

    The rails are not all on one side of the blade. Some of the rail extends over to the left side of the blade so you get about 52" of cut on the right side. The tube is longer than 52" on the right...

    That video is helpful, John. It's not the way I do a thinner band saw blade but it looks like it will work well for a wider one. Thanks for posting that.
