    Planer replacement blade choice

    Air Compressor -- When to Retire

    You can flush the air tank with vinegar to get most of the rust out then rinse. But, after that you just drain the water after every use. Also, if you want to lower the moisture content set up the intake to a 4" hose and suck the air from a conditioned room, the humidity is usually 15-25% lower...

    6x48 HF Belts

    +1 Quality sandpaper pays for itself. Do not cheap out on sand paper the cheap stuff segregates from the belt or disc, the git size is inconsistent and the grit usually is not hard. You can end up with tiny bits of grit in your work.

    I dunno, but I did smuggle a new Digital Electric Grand Piano into my house last night and my wife still thinks it is the old one :D ;) We will see how long before she notices and maybe we can use that as a basis for estimating how many tools you can add :p

    Should i try to fix a miter saw or buy new?

    I would look at some of the new saws to see what will work for you. The 10" are better than the 12" IMHO. My 12" Dewalt, I had to go to a full width blade, then it cut straight. The thin blades have too much drift.

    Plane adjustment for the aging eyes

    Paul Sellers, is the famous British carpenter. As stated in the original posting, this is an easy way to set a plane with no adjustment screw. It also teaches you to better estimate a shaving's thickness. To me, this was the best thing. Since most everything I work with is hard or way hard...
