Re: Adding indexer to Shorty for bowl inlay work

Fantastic work, Mike! Mounting a dividing head on a Shopsmith is truly thinking outside of the box. And the bowl is absolutely stunning. What's the inlay material? My first guess was some sort of crushed stone cast in epoxy, but on second thought I doubt that you'd want to be machining stone. Whatev...

Re: Changes For Woodcraft Online Login/Checkout Procedures

Shopify is completely legit — I use it for my ecommerce website toolquest.net. FWIW, it’s unlikely that even Woodcraft had access to your credit card data on their old website. Although invisible to you, payment transactions are usually processed by large third-party transaction processors, which pr...

Re: Large sheet material

There's another consideration, aside from struggling with unwieldy sheets. When breaking down sheet goods on a table saw, even assuming that you can keep the edges of the sheets perfectly tight against the fence for the entire cut, you still have to be sure that at least one factory edge is straight...

Re: Three-leg high chair / stool

I love the understructure — that’s a nice design and some fine craftsmanship. Making one of these has been on my bucket list for a while, and my workshop is currently stool-less. But my scrawny butt craves a carved seat bottom. The closer to a tractor seat, the better. Perhaps Roy Underhill would lo...

Re: Mark VII Motor Hums in Reverse

I’d be very cautious about using graphite powder inside of a switch. The stuff is both conductive and combustible, so you don’t want it anywhere that it could cause a short-circuit between conductors. Teflon spray would be much safer. But as teflon is an excellent insulator, you wouldn’t want to get...

Re: 3D printed axial cyclone for dust separation

I finally watched all three of those axial-cyclone videos, and the guy is a pretty entertaining presenter. I have a 3D printer, and have used it a lot. But the novelty has worn off, and I wouldn't be excited about printing for hundreds of hours to build those twin cyclones! The videos did get me cu...
