    started a topic Harbor Fraught

    Harbor Fraught

    Just a random annoyance . . . . Anyone get frustrated by the Harbor Freight ads that say no exclusions, then you see the details and see "for items under $20", or worse yet, in super small print, "Can not be used for: Atlas, Bauer, Central Machinery, CoverPro, Hercules, Predator, compressors,...

    about an inch and a half.

    High ceilings make a house look super elegant. You have the option of doing some cool interior doors that are not possible with 8 foot ceilings. A lot of the large very old houses in my area have those....

  • And no annoying dust collection holes, for little pieces to catch on, right?

    Since tilt arm style saws are my personal favorite . . . I can criticize it right? I hate the freaking dust collection mechanism on my King, and prefer the table on the older Green EX that didn't have that....

    replied to Question about tilting head saws
    I'll talk about this specific "slice" of your question, with more detail that you probably want or need.

    Most Tilting head saws do come from the same Taiwan factory, except Excalibur. So what happened with Excalibur was . . . General got bought by a Chinese investor, some China/Taiwan...

    replied to Picked up a new toy yesterday!
    I was shocked when I first learned Hitachi didn't actually make my Hitachi c-40 scroll saw. At that point, I was completely shocked, and of course my "faith" in the Hitachi brand was trashed as I realized their tools were made by company's which were totally unknown to me at the time. Anything...

    I bought one of the smaller fortress compressors, and was amazed how "weirdly quiet" it is. I love that thing. I have a couple of non-portable compressors in the shop, but they stay put and are very loud.

    replied to First Scroll Saw???
    I was noticing that too, and I would add to that the 18" Jet, 24" Seyco, 22 Inch Hegner, and 21" and 30" King, and 26" Hawk. I'm sure there was an interesting discussion about which saws and sizes of saws to feature....

    Tablesaws/bandsaws last forever so a saw from 81 is plausible, I'm thinking a new SawStop . . . but since this thread was created under off-topic, instead of under tools, and since Rolf mentioned "toy" instead of "tool", I'm starting to pivot my guess to something non-woodworkin...

    replied to First Scroll Saw???
    I've always had issues with those reviews, because they read more like Ads, at least to me. If I'm evaluating something like this for purchase, I want a Consumer Reports type of review, with all the nastiness exposed. A few years back, I talked to Bob about their reviews and lack of critical/candid...

    Wow, I had to look up ICF construction, very interesting. You doing all the work yourself? You doing the above grade stuff with that too?

    You should post some progress pictures of that.
