Thanks for coming up with such a unique and versatile workbench plan. When I first saw this I was glad that I hadn't started my dream workbench yet. I like your idea of using scissor jacks for the lift mechanism. Simple, and inexpensive.I tried using a hydraulic lift outfit and the ram or arm bent when I left weight on it, which rendered it useless.
Nicely equipped and laid out.I like the way you did your dust collection. My shop is similarly equipped , at half that size, since it's in my back yard. The Felder and Festool Co's love you too! I considered those at the time I set up my shop, but chose similar high quality tools at a much lower cost. Since your supporting all those Germanic Co's I'm going to assume a BMW is parked in your garage too. Happy woodworking!
I've been wanting to make these jigs ever since I saw it in my Shopnotes magazine.Perhaps they got this design from you. I like it because it seems I'm always struggling to find enough clamping positions on my workbench edge. I also like the portable line boring jig shown. I have the ones designed to drill these shelf holes with a portable hand drill, but they don't drill a nice clean tight hole like a line bore does and I don't do enough work to justify the cost of a dedicated line bore machine. So I'll be making both these jigs.
I love this product as well and have used it on a number of projects with excellent results , but due to it's high cost I'm more inclined to mix it myself, as one poster( robwein) suggested, using their fast drying poly. Another poster(PapaWhiskey) states he's purchasing this product for $5.95 a quart. He may want to check the volume content on his can as they are only selling this in pint can's. And around these parts( S0. Cal)it's selling for nearly $8.00.
I'd like to be able to afford the Driftmaster Fence or the LT Ceramic guides from Laguna. It's a little tough when your purchasing gifts for eight children. I'm wishing and hoping Santa will make my wishes come true.
I really love all the help I receive from the very skilled woodworkers found on the excellent Fine Woodworking website.I'm still wishing that I'll receive those Laguna LT ceramic bandsaw guides for Christmas. You know I've been GOOD!
A few days ago I looked into purchasing the Laguna LT ceramic bandsaw guides and was shocked at their cost. I left a message for them to call me back when they would be willing to negotiate a price I could afford to pay. I haven't heard from them yet! Maybe Santa will bring them this year!
Dear Fine Woodworking Santa,
I would really love to have the Laguna LT ceramic bandsaw guides for my 18" Jet bandsaw. I was just on their website the other day and was shocked at how expensive they are. I never dreamed I'd have a chance of receiving them as a gift from you. I've been very,very good this year. Just ask my wife Mary! Oh, I forgot, you already know that!
Lataxe's comments are actually sometimes that difficult to understand when he posts them in the queens English. Some really nice hand planes though would help me to become a better woodworker and to rely less on the machines to do the work.
I still use my Powermatic 66 I purchased some 20 years ago and it still performs flawlessly. I recently acquired a full on panel saw,so I'm not likely to purchase a Saw Stop any time soon. Although if I were in need of a new cabinet saw it would definitely being under serious consideration, although not exclusively because of it's unique safety devise. I would consider it more for it's quality of construction and the refined features the designers have incorporated into it's design. It's refreshing to see tool companies being progressive and innovative in their design, when for so many, many years tools like table saws saw little improvement.
