Itunes doesn't seem to what to let me p0st my review so I will do it here:
I’m a long time subscriber to FWW magazine and love the online edition. While I’m the first to admit that my woodworking needs all of the help that it can get, I was a late adopter of the podcast, because I thought what am I possibly going to get out of an audio only format when it comes to woodworking? For me the answer has been the realization that even professional woodworker have projects that don’t go quite right. Each podcast contains amazingly honest insights from FWW’s knowledgeable staff members Mike Pekovich, Asa Christiana and Matt Kenney in which they admit the to the challenges that they’ve encountered. As ironic as it sounds, it’s good to hear that woodworking legends like Mike Pekovich, Asa Christiana and Matt Kenney have projects that don’t always quiet go together as easily they may appear to in the pages of FWW. It’s the type of honesty that I would hope to get if I had three friends who were really skilled wood workers and they dropped by to shoot the breeze and Ed happened to tag along for the ride.
I look forward to each new edition to give me the impetus to get going with whatever I need to do in the shop. It is time for the powers that be at the Taunton Press, to make use the abundant free time that Ed must have, now that they have reigned in his use of sound effects and have freed up all the time that he must have spent collecting them, to make Shop Talk Live go weekly!
The cheaper Ryoba saw is most likely stamped out, at least on the rip cut side. A quick pass or two with a diamond plate will even out the cut, which may help with those tenons. That and let the saw do the work.
