    Table Saw Dial Indicator Jig (Edited)

    Isn't it the opposite? I think you want the playing card on the rear teeth. Won't a smaller gap at the back pinch and potentially create kickback?

    Woodworking Axioms

    Always remember that the bandsaw bears a scary resemblance to a butcher's saw.

    Knowing when to Toss

    Guilty! Just this morning I bent a cheap pin punch. Rather than throw it away I wasted 10 minutes grinding it down to use as a repousse tool that I'll probably never use... Mike

    For Sale DW364 7 1/4" HD circular saw

    I had a B&D Sawcat. It would have lasted my lifetime except it walked away from the jobsite. Even after I left housebuilding I replaced it with the Dewalt because I loved that saw type.

    Dewalt 18 Volt Batteries

    Agree with generics. I bought two 4000mAH for $37 shipped. Experience so far is they are strong enough and hold the charge well. I'm not making my living with or even working with the tools every day, so they fit my needs. I'm happy to get a couple more years out of my tools investment. Mike

    Sliding leg vise with X cross

    Do you think a small bock of delrin or hdpe would work? If they were allowed to pivot slightly wouldn't it provide a low friction, especially against the inset metal plate?

    Long Term Update On College

    Congrats! Great accomplishment, and you leave me jealous. I appreciate that the program puts focus on the business side. Having spent a long time around crafts people and their markets I've come to the conclusion that it's not a marathon, it's a triathalon. Technique, design and business are...

    New shop-suggestions for wall material

    I used drywall because it finished well and looks bright when painted white. I hung two french cleats and haven't had any trouble hanging items. Plenty of flexibility without holes after something is moved. Mike

    Joiner or Domino

    I started on the cheap with a DW planner and 'jointability' work fixture that allowed me to joint edges on boards up to 8' with a router. With the right sled I was able to thickness plane flat and square edge, then make parallel on my tablesaw. Inexpensive and with flexible tools that worked...

    Need input on closet design

    It's been a while since I built closets, but for plywood I found water based poly was the best finish, as long as you lightly sand and recoat shelves to get them smooth. Still not as smooth as melamine, but some prefer wood. Poly dries hard and doesn't have a residual odor. If you're going to...

    Lock Miter Bit opinions, good/bad?

    Agree, much better in theory than practice. Too much time and frustration, even with the set-up jig. Mike
