    Gloss variations? sprayed pigmented lacquer - Update 2 - Op error?

    I have spray finished some shelving units, and their backs, with a primer and the white the Target EM6500 product. The result is fine when viewed head on (perpendicular) - no issues in coating. However when viewed in low angle bright light, it is clear that my work suffers from gloss level...

    Festool sander - dust port adapter?

    Having purchased the 'entry level' Festool sander a few years back, I have struggled to adapt some fixture to the dust collection port. Lately at the advice of a store employee, I searched plumbing fixtures and found that a sink drain extension fit over the dust port, but loosely. With an old...

    Dado jig - 'exact width'

    There's nothing 'original' here, I just thought I'd post in case others had not considered such a jig. I suspect others (Joe Scharle, the jigmeister) have posted something like this back in the archives, but pics haven't necessarily migrated to the new platform. Anyways, I am working on a...

    How good is the dust collection on a track saw?

    So I am considering a Wen track saw, but want to hear from any user of a track-saw. Is the dust collection sufficient to use inside? I need to work with a bunch of sheet goods, and plan to do in my basement (to break down into pieces) rather than my shop (shop space has constraints). I don't...
