  • Dust Collection on a dime.

    Here's an alternative material for the mainline ductwork on your dust collection sytem.Use empty carpet roll tubes.Your 4" couplings and elbow fittings will fit nicely inside the tube.They come in about 10 ' lengths.If you have an "obstacle " in the way of duct routing ,the flex tube will fit over the outside diameter of the tube. Just cut the tube, and junction with a piece of flex tube routed around the obstacle. Visit your local carpet /flooring dealer, you can likely get all you need at no charge.Since they'te made of cardboard, there's hardly any static buildup, which improves the performance of your grounding wire.

        Ours are run by the state Ag Dept. They have very strict rules as to masks and distancing. The Ag Dept does come and visit to make sure rules are being followed. We stand behind the table and use the tailgate for packaging. I have people place their credit card in the reader on my phone and remove...

        Linda - Here is my gimmick for the Incra 1000SE on my SS CNS. I scratched a line 3/4-inch in from the blade end of the fence. I then use a ruler to set that line 1-inch from the side of a carbide tooth on the blade. Then I line the 1-inch mark on the fence ruler to the scratch line.

        Now,...

        Nice puzzle. Go for the gusto---scroll it next time!! Several of the quality brands of blades make blades just for acrylics. With a sharp blade and the right speed it's all good.
