WT, first I'm glad to hear you didn't suffer worse injuries. As you discovered, a table saw can quickly nibble away your flesh before you even know what happened. Second, my fingers are valuable. I ...

I think the word Bill is looking for is "phenolic". It's a hard, slick plastic that might work for you. Like you, I had a Craftsman table saw but I can't remember the thickness of the insert. Measu...

You are correct in your concern over your grandson. In my never-to-be-humble opinion a 4-year old does not belong in your wood shop unless 100% of your focus is on him and what you and he are working...

Post: RE: To those with short cyclones

I don't pretend to be an expert in dust collection. I just knew that with a 15" planer, an 8" jointer, a 19" bandsaw and a SawStop I needed a bigger dust collector that would physically fit in my sho...

You might try a cordless ROS. There's no cord to get in your way. And, as near as I can tell my DeWalt 20v has about the same amount of power as my corded Porter Cable. The downside is you need mor...

At the very least open the box tops and ends so air can better circulate through the wood. Even better remove the cardboard. You may even want to put a box fan and set it next to the wood stack. An...

Here's one thought: has your gas supply been disconnected in the recent past? If so, it's possible that they did not bleed all the air out of the supply lines. Your gas company could certainly check...
