Glue Myths No. 3 - Biscuits

Even though the biscuit joint's reputation had begun to suffer some years ago, this is still an interesting video.

Re: Removing extension table dog bone studs

I’d start with JPG’s suggestion. If you remove the rail, you can adjust a Crescent wrench such that it just slips over the bent table “skirt”. Then tweak the skirt straight gradually, moving the wrench up and down the bent section. If you can’t get it straight enough that way, but the other rail mo...

Re: This looks interesting

I always try to make all rip cuts needed at a particular width before moving the fence to do some other table saw operation. I don't think I've ever miscounted how many pieces I will need ripped to a particular width, but I have ruined a piece much later in the project and therefore have had a need ...

Re: Glue Joint Myths No.2 - Miter Joints

All those naysayer are guilty of confusing apples and oranges. He proved the glue is NOT the deciding factor. The joint itself is the limiting factor.(as is the strength of the wood). Correct. But people (including me) nevertheless worried about the end-grain-to-end-grain glue joint failure when in...

Re: Shorty Drill Press not perpendicular to floor, any ideas?

I don't see a busted myth. I just see two different machines (Dusty's and JPG's), probably from different errors, with two different readings, neither of which is 90 degrees. Dusty's appears over-rotated and JPG's appears under-rotated. Whether either condition represents the way these machines were...
