    That's really nice looking, Jim. If you get a chance to take a picture of one of those tack trunks with the tack in it, I'd be very interested to see how it all goes in. I don't know much about...

    Well, me too. But I have to get some help to get these into a truck. The bandsaw, especially, is HEAVY. I think the specs said about 750 pounds. Right now, I'm planning to rent a truck with a...

    I used to do a lot of jogging. Other than the cost of new shoes maybe twice a year, there's not much else. I'm sure you can find things to spend money on but you don't need anything else.

    +1 That's the way I do it. I even use a bigger slotting bit and trim the corners by hand with a chisel.

    A bit less than $2K. She just really wanted to get rid of the tools and get her garage back. If she kept the Unisaw, she'd have to find someone else to buy it (or take it). I think her attitude...
  7. Follow up

    I went to see the bandsaw this morning. It's been sitting for a while so there's surface rust on all the unpainted metal surfaces but that should clean up okay. We negotiated and came to an...

    As long as you have some 240V circuits, the wire of the 240V circuit will act as a capacitor and bridge between the legs. The amount of capacitance is not large but at the frequency that the...

    I'm pretty sure that Ethernet requires a transformer coupling at each end of a point-to-point link. This is specifically for the situation where you may have differences in potential, such as could...

    Those are all good. I've used the DeWalt and liked it. On the motor, there's a type marking. People say that the Type 1 is better than the Type 2 (as best I can remember).

    Someone correct me if this is wrong.

    It seems to me that if you run 12/3 to each box and put in a 240V and a 120V outlet, you could have problems if you want to use both of them at the same time. ...

    Looks like a decent scroll saw. The things most people consider important in a scroll saw are:

    1. Variable speed. Some of the really old scroll saws had step pulleys to change the speed. Those...

    This doesn't answer your question, but I dropped my 1000 pro Shapton and it broke in two. I glued it back together with epoxy and also glued it to a Norton 1000 stone I had. So I now have a double...

    The negative thing I heard about the glass Shaptons is that the sharpening part is relatively thin. Of course, it takes a long time to wear out a sharpening stone. With the pro Shaptons, if you...
