Re: My new business venture

Do you mean just the thread size or the size of the sliding nut? I was thinking the latter for possibly thinner plywood holding applications, perhaps?

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

As I said to you with the other issue you had a while back don't give up hope. You're posts are always welcome, informative and very well thought out. In life we all need to stay positive. Negativism is what is wrong today. Thanks John. I really appreciate your kind words and feel the same about al...

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

Unanswered may be partially due to a quirk in the board software. There is a thread about this a long time ago and at that time JPG acknowledged it's existence. Bear with me here. When I log on I am on the Board Index page. It shows me the topics with new posts. I click on a topic and it shows me t...

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

UNANSWERED? example? JPG, Well, I wasn't looking to call anyone out, but I guess I left the door open here when I brought it up. We all get busy, so there is no judgement here on my part, but it does get frustrating when posts are missed. I think sometimes there is just a sudden flurry of activity ...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

John, Thanks. Maybe this is the link below? I have seen several of his videos and like him (very down to Earth and communicates well). Yeah, I don't know if I will ever get a full CNC one day, but doing vertical work on the end, like joinery, definitely interests me. Since I am not doing production ...

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

And I’m not trying to make a captive ring or just any old random “ring-shaped” piece of wood — I’m trying to make (exactly) the wood thimbles I posted pictures of...exactly as they look in the pics with interior and exterior radii cut/rounded over. I’ve searched incessantly for videos showing how t...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

OK, I guess I glossed over that part. I think he was just demonstrating that one draw back of a dove tail bit. I wouldn't characterize it in general that it is easy to make a mistake with the SO. Like any tool you have to pay attention. The SO has a 1/2" margin of error where it will self corr...

Re: Beginning fixing up a 10E — Need help please

Yeah, it would be nice to see some analytics to know for sure, but definitely seems like activity is way down the last 6+ months. Also, I haven't kept up with the FB groups, but checking just now I don't see as much activity/day there as what I used to see a year ago. Either everyone is very busy in...

Re: Making a Dovetailed Adventure Chest with Shaper Origin

I feel like I have to chime in here even though Ed addressed it. The strongest application of the SO is making joints. That is 90% of what I use it for even though I have a traditional gantry CNC as well. Dovetails is not one of its strong points but if you are careful they can be done as this vide...

Re: New Brand of Cordless Tools from Lowes - FLEX

Interesting because from everything I have seen and heard everyone is raving about the new flex tools. Flex is not a new brand it was in Europe for years, Chervon ( maker of EGO, Craftsman, Masterforce, Skill, Skillsaw, Kobalt and others) bought the company and is expanding the product line here in...
