    Florida Woodworking Expo?

    I just received a registration form from Redmond and Son to the Florida Woodworking Expo (TSI EXPOS) December 6th and 7th. It does state that "These are not hobbyist shows". My question is: Are these types of shows interesting for the hobbyist or are they a waste of time? I would think that...

    Anyone use the quick change chucks for routers?

    Does any one here use the quick change chucks for routers? If so what are your thoughts? Seems a little expensive at sixty bucks. I do not know exactly how it secures the bits but I do not want to ruin the shafts of my bits.

    Difference between single sided and double side sawblade?

    I was going to get a Freud laminate and melamine blade. I see that Freud has two: 1. LU98R010 Single Sided Laminate and Melamine blade 2. LU97M010 Double sided Laminate and Melamine blade. The both appear to do the same job. What is the difference?

    Some people are reporting defective blades that they received from Amazon during the $65 sale of the Forrest WW 11 blades. Mine was OK but I have seen pictures of two blades that were pretty bad.

    We need a new dishwasher

    It is time for a new diswasher. We have an older KitchenAid that never cleaned worth a flip so am looking for something better. After a quick search around the internet I see some reports that Bosch make the "Best Diswasher" and the "Best Buy Diswasher" and that Whirlpool makes the "Best...

    Summerfeld's Tongue & Groove Cabinetmaking System?

    I just watched the Summerfeld's Tongue & groove Cabinetmaking System DVD and it seems like a strong, accurate and fairly fast way to construct cabinets. Anyone using this system that can give an evaluation? I do know that there was a recent problem with the tongue and groove bit set but I...

    I got the Grip-Tite

    Last week I started a thread asking about the Grip-Tite. There was not a whole lot of response but the ones that I did get were positive.

    Cutlist Plus?

    Does anyone here use a program called Cutlist Plus?

    Well Jim O'Dell- Some time for woodworking now

    Jim, I stayed up until 1:17am to watch your Dallas Mavericks. What in the world did you do to those guys? I guess the good thing is that you will have some time for woodworking now. The Houston guys may have some time on their hands also if they don't watch out. I do like that run and gun...

    Wood Sliding Bypass Doors?

    I was going to build a cabinet with normal frame and panel doors but then it was suggested to me that it might be better to use sliding doors due to space requirements. If I used sliding doors they would be approximately two feet by three and a third feet. I looked for sliding door hardware and...
