Post: RE: SawStop question -- 1.75 vs 3 hp

I’d buy the 3 Hp if you can afford it—especially if not at a downsizing moment in woodworking or life. I had a 1.75 hp General International in the early 2000’s and it was a great contractors saw. C...

Post: RE: What ever happened to…

Todd’s post were entertaining. I always got a kick out of how he bragged and boasted about all his different girlfriends he’d go rust hunting with.

Post: RE: Oneida dust collector

I don’t think you’ll do any better at $700, no tax or shipping. My 2 HP Shop Fox with a Wynn filter does quite well on a single flex hose run. The Oneida will be even better.

Post: RE: Countersinks

I second estate sales if possible. Estate sale drill bits are typically dirt cheap and most are high quality. I almost never pass up a good countersink bit even if I have more than enough already.

Post: RE: How would you match this color?

This will be challenging and time consuming. I would start with a black dye like Transtint and then try to find a grey oil based gel stain to use as a glaze directly over the black dye. Wipe it on, ...

Post: RE: Finishing Stair Treads

If you refinish, a triangular head on an oscillating tool works great in the corners. The Fein multi master is what I’ve used. A traditional paint style scraper also will work for the corners. I’m ...

Post: RE: Bringing tools out of long term storage

I would plug them in and start using them. Then decide if there’s “set” in the belts that require replacing. I have bought machines that I know have sat longer than this and either they work, or the...

I would expect nothing you’d want on a cutting board to stick to the acrylic. However, I’m not a salad bowl finish or diluted oil poly guy for cutting boards. Paraffin or beeswax with mineral oil is...

I know a few who have done this in the old downtown warehouse area in KC. I think 2 would be ideal and 3-4 max. Schedules would be important and maybe multiple workbenches? Glue ups and clamps coul...

I think the days of putting semi gloss or gloss in baths and kitchens has finally disappeared. I’d use a “washable” flat or eggshell. I don’t think you’ll see much of a difference between quality pa...

I can’t speak of your area but I would check the smaller mom and pop sawyers. Sycamore trees are everywhere in the KC area. A tree trimmer friend of mine drops a lot of them.

I could go either way with this decision. I’ve used a good amount of Advance on painted furniture and all the trim in my house. I love Advance. Especially compared to old oil based enamels. As...
