    Nice article. I always thought Bozeman was in Montana...I guess there is one in Minnesota as well?

      Looks like an error. According to their web site, Lowell Thomas is in Bozeman, Montana.

          I enjoy reading the product reviews in the magazine.

          Bob, like you, my favorite hand sanding tool is a random orbit sander. I am intrigued by the Dremel Multi-Max, however. I like the small size and delicate/small area sanding the tool should offer. The scraper is a nice touch, but I have to admit, I seldom do refinishing.

          The only problem I had with Dremel in the past was with a beautiful set I bought from them which included a variable speed rotary tool with lots off attachments and tons of "bits." The problem was that there was nothing in the set which described what each attachment was for. For example, I would have a tough time knowing which spinning disk to use for the material I was trying to cut through, be it wood or a rusty nail. It did provide a nice carrying case for the 100+ rotary attachments, however, LOL.

          When I do get it straight, the tool works well, though.

          Thanks for the review. Maybe I'll add the Multi-Max to my workbench soon.

            Bob have you had a chance to compare the Multi-Max with any of the other new oscillating tools?? I bought the Rockwell Sonicrafter and am very happy with that. I just wondered how the other compared.

              I have the Dremel Stylus rotory tool & it works great. Came with a kit, including bits, wrench etc. I like the idea of being able to just put it back on the charger & not worry about it over charging. No problem with Dremel here ! Perk

                A very nice model. Thanks for sharing.

                I was on a cruise three years ago that made a stop in Stockholm. I too visited the museum. It is an incredible restoration. The full ship is there and the museum is three stories tall, allowing you to see it in very close detail. The carvings on the...

                No Hegner here - maybe one day as you all make them sound great. However, I wanted to reply to Paul's note about his Excalibur's and new Seyco's saw regarding their vibration on relations his Hegner's - I have an older Purple Excalibur I bought used from Seyco and a new Seyco hubby bought me in May...

                Ah yes, my 14" has dry rotted bellows. But, I don't use the saw, so I've been hesitant to fix it. I need to get rid of that one. Hegner should be ashamed to make that model, and I would almost feel bad for the sucker that bought it. Actually, it's better than any new less than $200 saw for blade...

                Woodterry, early on, I had a time when I had some knocking, but that went away when I adjusted my saw to minimize blade travel.

                First thing, make sure the arm is perfectly level with the table, once it is level, do not use that back knob. Only time you use it, is to get that table back...

                Since you live near Knoxville, (As do I) - do check with Ray. I know he comes in to the area sometimes to "tune up" Judy Gale Roberts Excalibur saws she has in her classroom. Not sure how often he comes, and if he's already been here recently, but worth the call to see. If he's going to...
