Re: Accessory Storage Idea Thread

Mine is pretty simple, just a couple of cabinets on a rolling base with a top. The SPT's are mount on the top a few inches higher than the SS. The previous owner of my first SS had 6 of the SPT mounting stands but only had the Bandsaw and Jointer and never fulfilled his plan of adding additional SPT...

Re: Comfortable using the table saw?

I don't feel that the higher table saw is a safety issue, but I just don't like it. I normally have a dedicated table saw in the shop, but while building the new shop my only stationary tool was one of my Mark V's. I used the Shopsmith table saw to rip window and door jamb extensions and flooring, a...

Re: Woodpeckers 1283 - Cool Tool or Fool Tool???

For use on a job site, where you cut mostly rafters,studs and sheet goods for the roof. I feel the same about Festool. My old Craftsman 8" will cut studs right along side of any Festool you might bring to the job site. No dust collection needed and only as accurate as the user. I have a Festoo...

Re: Woodpeckers 1283 - Cool Tool or Fool Tool???

I'd vote fool's tool. There is little if any reason to have the level of accuracy Woodpecker's is known for in an outdoor tool. Construction tools take a beating and I know from experience that Woodpecker's tools aren't up to that task while remaining accurate. They should stay safely in the shop an...

Re: Incra Flip Shop Stop & Quality Issues?

My shop stop is still in a box somewhere and I'm about a month from unpacking into the new shop. Sometime in the past 4-5 years or so Incra changed suppliers or processes or something but here are a couple of things I've noticed First, there was a marked color change from deeper gold almost orange c...

Re: This storm

Probably the biggest disaster has been in Texas. About 20% of electricity is produced by wind turbines and everyone in Texas, except west Texas gets power from that regulating authority. Turbines are iced up. Nothing was done to prevent that when they were built. Turbines in northern Europe don't i...

Re: This storm

We're a little more used to it here in the north, or the deep south of Garretson South Dakota depending on your perspective. Right now it is -20 and much warmer than yesterday, but still dang cold. I'm working at my daughter's house this week and hanging out with my 3 year old grand daughter. Electr...

Re: Which tool do you fear the most?

I respect, but don't fear any of my cutting tools because they behave in an expected manner. The cutting head, bit, or blade contains itself to a predefined area. My finish nailer on the other hand misbehaves. Both of these photos are from this weekend. Photo 1. The nail hit something, made a u-turn...
