Post: Reaction Wood

So I've never had this happen before.  Last night I'm cross cutting a PT 1x8 with a 12" miter saw and 2/3 of the way through the cut the saw comes to a stop.  The board pinched the blade so hard that ...

Was not aware of the hike saw without the center bit. I don't have a CnC, but I like the idea. I don't have a lathe, but I bet I can find a 3" dowel. Thanks guys. Another thought I had was cutt...

I need to cut a bunch of disks.  The catch is I don't want a center hole that I have to patch. I need to batch these out faster than trying to cut them on the bandsaw and sanding them into a decent l...

Thanks for the offer. I think it only works for me if one of us is going to be in the neighborhood of the other. If I drive 4 hours round trip, I'll burn enough gas that it eliminates the savings ov...

I've seen a lot of terrible fish tank stands. The thing is, to purchase one they are crazy expensive and aren't much better that what you got.

I'd take the existing one down. If you want to know what's under it, drill a hole. If you change your mind, you can just fill the hole.

Post: RE: downdraft table?

Mine looks identical to Jim's. It is a pain as it is always in the way. I haven't used it in years. I was looking at it yesterday and it will probably get disassembled and the lumber repurposed.

My bandsaw is a grizzly 14" with a 6" riser. I'm using a 3/4" resaw blade. I have recently sharpened it, so that could be the problem. On a couple of test cuts, it is clearly sharper than it was, b...

Thanks for the replies.  I don't think I was clear where the problem is.  The binding is not in the runner, it's the blade binding while trying to cut through the auxillary top.  Here is the video I w...

I found the Spagnolo video. I'll check the set up tonight to see if that's the problem. I didn't have a chance to get to the garage last night. I'll report back. Thanks all.
