Nothing like the sound of a well tuned power tool.

Re: UPDATE: Book Giveaway: The Frugal Woodturner by Ernie Conover

This looks great. Just the title get's my attention. The words Frugal just goes with woodworking. Woodworkers were "green" way before it caught on.

Re: Man Wins Big Money in Tablesaw Lawsuit

Is this a case of a saw manufacturer that didn't include the technology, or a woodworker who chose not to buy the available technology? Sawstop is a great saw but I haven't invested in one because I have chosen to invest my money in other things at this time. The fact that my current saw does not have the technology is due to my own choice (I'm too cheap). This is just another case of a rediculous lawsuit.

Re: Setting up shop: Which machine first? And why.

Funny this came up today. I just finished a related story for my Guild newsletter titled "How do you answer the question?" The premisewas a question that was asked "What are the 3 most important tools in your shop?" I was talking about 3 instead of the first but my position is the same. It depends on what yoou intend to do with them. My immediate thought was the same as many of the people responding to this question and get a good table saw. Then I realized that this would be a bad choice if goal of the person asking the question wanted to make wooden pens, do scroll saw work,or turn a bowls. When people ask our opinions,we need to stop for a minute and ensure we understand the context of the question. If you'd like to see the full article, the following link is to the current newsletter for my guild.
