Re: My new business venture

Very nice work Buckeye. I wish you all the best on this new adventure. I sometimes dream at night about marrying my semiconductor fabrication background to woodworking tools...then drift off to sleep :) Making this compatible with the existing hardware accessories will go a long way toward adoption. b

Re: Why do I need a 10 position Quick-Index Quill Feed?

Like Algale-I upgraded to the 10 position magnetic with 2 hubs from the standard single lever. It doesn't add any torque compared to the standard lever, its roughly the same length, but it is great during setup to have 10 positions available to put the lever in just the right "up" position...

Re: Woodpeckers AUTO-LINE DRILL GUIDE ™

I'll be watching the discussion- I'm interested in having one at some point-they all seem to have some advantages/disadvantages at the moment.

Re: Woodpeckers AUTO-LINE DRILL GUIDE ™

The base seems alot lighter than the other options...I wonder about its stability during drill. Atleast in the last seconds of the video, I can see it moving as he penetrates the wood surface. There doesn't seem to be a very "handy" location to hold it down.

Re: Sanding smooth inlay

I'm getting closer now. One thing I havent learned well is the finishing steps. In this case its 2 or 3 coats of polyurethane, but im always wondering how much sanding between layers is required or if its necessary at all. Between each coat here-I inspected the surface for defects etc and sanded the...

Re: Crosscut Sled Sustained Accuracy

Seems like a replacement spacer for that rubber thing could minimize variance on that part. Maybe a piece of hardwood or something? I use the rubber stop as a first approximation-but then move the table a bit back and forth to align with ZCI. Final test is hand rotating the blade to listen for rubbi...
