    Festool domino joiners

    You can get the 700 to work on thinner stock using some accessories and even use the 500's cutters with an adaptor. So you could look it at as the 700 can do pretty much what the 500 does if you add the right accessories. With all that said most of my work falls in the realm of 500 and if I...

    Worried too much about wasted wood?

    Glad to see I'm not alone, here's a slight variation of it. I tend to get paralyzed constantly altering the project to fit what's in my scrap. So for instance I'm doing my roubo legs I need 4 1/2 wide. I could cut another piece from the 8 foot long 12/4 board I have or use a scrap piece...

    Worried too much about wasted wood?

    Drilling deeper holes than quill travel.

    I think I have a couple options to try. Good pointers on how to drill by hand so I'll try those first on some scrap to see how bad I do. I have a brace and bit I've not used it much so that may be the route so I have more control.

    Drilling deeper holes than quill travel.

    Good though dennis.... I do have a full size lathe. I usually use my drill chuck in the tailstock. So I'd just make a carriage and put my chuck in the headstock and go from there. Now I'm not good at jigs so any drawings / examples can help :)

    Drilling deeper holes than quill travel.

    :) Nova drill press is in the future I don't think I'll ever need to drill holes like this again. I don't plan on building another big workbench. After watching the video that seems like a total pain in the rear. if I can't get it drilled straight I'll just get the brackets for the vise...

    The death of my first friend, my dad

    Sorry for your loss. It's amazing how when I was younger I used to hate hearing "you're acting like your dad". Now I know I'm probably doing something right if I'm acting like him. Hopefully it provides some comfort to know there's a part of him that's also a part of you.

    Drilling deeper holes than quill travel.

    So I need to drill out some deep 3/8" holes 5" and 9" deep. Now I ditched my drill press but my old one was only a 4 quill travel. I will eventually replace that drill press that would handle the 5" deep hole but obviously it wouldn't help with the deeper one. I'm probably going to...

    Drill press in Charlotte?

    So I got rid of my drill press to make space in my shop and of course now I need one. I figured I could get to one at the makerspace here but it's not available. I need to hog out some material for my Roubo legs and drill a the pins for the Criss Cross. I probably won't be ready for that...

    Building Question: Shop Expansion

    Yup it will part of the challenge is I have a "pinch" point because the table saw and jointer are side by side as since they need significant in-feed/out-feed space. If it's longer I could spread them out more. As it is now I have like a 1 foot wide walk way between them and for longer...

    Building Question: Shop Expansion

    You raise a good point I didn't think about :( Right now I could get a away foundation on skids and concrete blocks but if I get longer that may be an issue. If I have to go through pouring a foundation then I might as well go big or go home right? Thanks for the sketch that helps a lot. I...
