        Jet Saw

        I agree, I think the Jet saw would be your best choice.

        I have had the contracter version (think that is the same number you have listed) for over 10 years and cut a lot of things with it.

        As long as you set it up good, and keep a good blade in it you should have no problems with cutting anything.

        The Blade is a big part of it and I have tried a lot of different makes, and found the mid to high end range blade will last you a long time. I use a CMT 50 tooth blade for a general all around blade and found it to cut as good as the same in the Forrest WWII blades or other brands. (save your money on the Forrest) they give you a guarantee that if you don't like it send it back, and I sent it and samples of my cuts back to them, and showed them that for 1/2 the price I could get as good of a cut, then they come up with the story that since I didn't buy it direct from them, I had to pay restocking fee and such, so that is just my story on Forrest blades.

        Go with the Jet, I don't think you will go wrong, and with the 1 1/2 HP motor you should have enough power to cut most things.

          Wood identification needed

          I have a new neighbor who did a lot of woodworking in the past but had to give it up because of allergies. He sold his shop equipment and wood stockpile when he moved here, however he kept a few pieces of fancy wood and showed them to me. The first one (First Photo) he had no idea what it was. It is...

          SLRA does a “spot” check. He’s lucky I’m keeping him around. It was free with a purchase at harbor freight. When people pick up a basket to examine, usually first time customers, they inspect everything for glue ups, drill holes, etc. of course, I don’t think half of them know what they are...

          Back in my days of collecting antique pottery, I used to carry a a small blacklight unit to check for repairs that were invisible to the naked eye. I never knew that it could detect glue spots. That's a lot neater than using mineral spirits, or waiting until a sealer coat of shellac reveals missed...
