Re: Incra Flip Shop Stop & Quality Issues?

Incra is on par with Woodpecker when it comes to expectation of quality. No way I would accept this. You paid a premium price for a tool that should fulfill your expectations on the most minimal levels.

Re: Preview SuperBar

Do you think there will be an advantage to it instead of the one from Woodpecker?

Re: JDS Multi Router

Wow that is a pretty penny to pay for what it can do. Its in the range of a Shaper Origin which $2499 now days. It can handle heavy duty operations to support production type work that some folks may need.

Re: Which tool do you USE the most

I am with John on this, almost. Rough stock might need the bandsaw first to cut down to acceptable width and the miter saw to cut to rough length before going to the jointer to flatten two sides. Then it might be back to the bandsaw to cut to rough width and thickness before going to the planer for ...

Re: Newb with SS questions - part 2 - SS as Table Saw

I guess I tend to agree with Ed in that the economical way to go if you have the shop space is to get a MK 500 to use for everything except for a table saw. Buy a standalone table saw or now days see if a premium track saw system (Makita or Festool plus the necessary accessories) will do what you ne...

Re: PARF REAM for 20mm holes

The reamer is just a reamer and I think you can only get it from Axminster, at least that is where I got mine.

Re: PARF REAM for 20mm holes

I got to try out my reamer today and overall I would say it is excellent. I used a TSO close fit dog and some holes I had previously drilled with the SO that were too tight to remove without assistance from underneath the table. The drill guide worked well and I quickly discovered that the depth you...

Re: PARF REAM for 20mm holes

My reamer is also due to be delivered tomorrow. I plan to use it with my Rockler portable drill guide to ensure the least amount of run out on the existing holes. Just using a hand drill I think has more risk of producing a larger hole than is desired. Anxious to see how it goes.

Re: Hearing aid battery life.

I got my hearing aids from the VA and get batteries from them. They last almost a week, usually a day or two less. Depends on how much shop time I have since I don't ware them there. I was able to survive flying F-105s and F-4s and even sharing a flight line with EB-66s with little damage. What got ...
