    Collapsed pail

    I started using my Clear Vue CV-06 mini cyclone and Ridgid shop vac for my sanders. The shop vac has a 2-1/2" hose, the sanders all use 1-1/4" hose. The suction was apparently too much for the CV-06 bucket causing it to collapse. So, how can I fix this bucket and how do I prevent this from...

    Excellent customer service from FastCap (GluBot)

    I have been using GluBot glue bottles for several years. I find them much easier to use than the 16 or 32 ounce bottles of Titebond. Plus I tend to buy glue in gallons to save a few dollars and use the gallons to refill the smaller bottles. The applicator tips on those smaller bottles eventually...

I shut everything down real quick, unplugged the saw and took a look inside. The blade had broken, not on the weld. I also noticed one tooth (maybe...
