Post: RE: Laminate flooring in Workshop

Post: RE: Shop habit ---Do you boldly mark your pieces?

I use light pencil marks where I can. If the wood is dark, I revert to masking tape and/or blue painter tape. I was shocked when I once saw a guy use a black sharpie marker. It was Tommy Mac on the  ...

Post: RE: Who uses two bandsaws in their shop?

Thanks for the feedback. It looks like I'm not alone out there. Heck some of you have more than two! I will probably pick up a Rikon 10" the next time I see a sale.

Post: Who uses two bandsaws in their shop?

Post: RE: How many here use bench cookies?

Like others, I jumped on the bench cookie bandwagon when they came out. Even in plain site, I forget all about them. I don't think I've used them 5 times in the over 10 years I've owned them.

I would recommend getting both the R3 and K5 jig. I use both a lot. The K5 is great for most things but if it's big, heavy or bulky, sometimes it's easier to bring the tool to the material. That's whe...
