Post: Eurekazone shutting down

Got an email saying Eurekazone is shutting down soon.  Sad to see smaller tool makers disappear.  I still use my original track saw system from them, as it's worked well for me.

The 220v 3hp will be a lot quieter.  Something else to consider.

I don't think you have a head at all, just two bases.  The head is the vise part of it.

On the microwave vent, maybe the blower drum was never rotated 180 degrees, like you're supposed to do when venting out the back?

Post: RE: Wire gauge drill bits

Look for a model train store in your area.  They always have small bits.  Another option is Ebay, though probably hard to get just one bit.

Post: RE: Which saw?

While a tablesaw is more useful, unless finances were extremely dire, there is no reason not to have both.  A miter saw can easily be moved around to fit even in a small space.

I've been doing this for awhile.  Never had a problem with using an impact driver in 3/4" MDF. I always glue the joints, as well.

Post: Pocket Hole Screws in a wider board?

If I have some wider boards, say like a 1x6 or 1x8, how many screws should I use?  Is two screws still enough, spacing them about 1 1/4 from the sides?
