Shop Talk Live 31: Ditch That Miter Saw for a Tablesaw
On this week's edition of Shop Talk Live, we tackle a variety of listener questions on everything from tips for purchasing a new miter saw, planer, or bandsaw-to weighing the options when it comes to rehabbing a massive 12-foot workbench. Plus, Ed Pirnik solicits some listener opinions for his new home workshop, Matt Kenney fesses up to some questionable use of a high-priced jointer, and we have a bit of fun at our own expense reading a letter from a "former" listener that's a bit on the prickly side!
Audio Shop Stumper Winner Announced
Also this week, we have the pleasure to announce David Cloutier as the winner of episode 30's audio Shop Stumper. For having correctly identified the sound of a blade being honed on a sharpening stone, David will receive a brand-spankin' new--straight out of the box set of Rockler Bench Cookies. Nice ears, David
