Re: Rotex 150 versus 115e for weathered wood

The 115e is a real problem solver in that it will do things other sanders are just not designed to do, period. I think it gets overlooked so often because folks look at it and think 'angle grinder'....

Did I see a Vac-sys on the bench right near the end of the video?

Re: Looong rules?

This is what I would suggest: If you think temperature will be a factor calculate the fudge factor and add (or subtract) it from your measurement. The...

Re: Looong rules?

You guys are missing the most important factor. What happens to the piece you are measuring when the temperature of it changes? What is the coefficient of expansion of, say, maple? I would guess it...

Re: How about a Non-Portable Kapex?

Agree on the Omga. I think the name comes from the noise you make when you try to lift one. A dealer near me has one on consignment. They are build like a machinetool. If I were to set up a...

Re: Fine Woodworking Article on Clamping with NO mention of Bowclamps.

Ah, well, Craig. "Revenge is a dish best served cold." After Lee Valley intros your products we can all write FWW and ask them how they missed inclusion of such a clearly superior product.

Re: Crosscut sled

C4 and C8 are both designations for carbide grades. IIRC, The lower the number the harder, and more brittle, the carbide. Moving from C8 to C4 should result in more wear resistance. They probably...

Re: Facts vs our what we think we know

Boy, this is a thread that could go on forever (and also one of the reasons I love this forum). As has been pointed out, facts alone, and even the recognition that the facts don't necessarily...

Re: Review of the Festool parallel guides.

One way of easily improving on the .5mm, without measuring, is to slide the guides close enough to each other so that the stops touch. You can then set the stops to the same dimension and then feel...

Re: Costner's Oil Cleaning Machine

Re: Mouth Grinding?

Good approach. That way, if you decide to sell it in the future you can advertise it as a "Ultra-Rare Stanley 9 1/2 Low Angle SKEW Block Plane". ;)

Didn't mean to imply hypocracy, John. I was trying to point out that all of us at one time or another wish for one thing when we may really need the opposite.

Re: Costner's Oil Cleaning Machine

Everybody has their own interests to protect or agenda to promote. The Southern governors want to convince folks their beaches are clean and they should come on down. Understandable, but as soon as...

Not dead yet here.

Regarding the AT55 attachment: I used duct tape for the dust control enhancement and I guess I could make pencil marks on it for stopped cuts but they probably wouldn't come...

Re: DJ-1 v.2

I once 'moved' a big snapper to a safer haven (safer for my Irish Setter). I casually...

Re: Hubris?

When it comes to tool steels A2 is fairly pedestrian. That doesn't mean it isn't well-suited for plane blades, as several high end makers can attest. I have no doubt there are other applications for...
