  3. Probably most relavent to anyone else who lived in Wisconsin in the 2000's: https://www.packers.com/news/former-packers-gm-ted-thompson-dies-at-68
  4. Doubt it matters much. I think I have a dewalt in mine. Also, shouldn't a shelf for a hand plane utilize said plane during the construction?
  5. and me was a Contax T1/Agfa Ultra 50 user before. Oddly, I never really shot Fuji film. But still interesting.
  6. I found a pair for under $70. And if you can tell the difference between those and something over $1K, the James Randi Educational Foundation will pay you more than enough to buy those expensive cables.
  7. The reason is that as you push the saw from front to back, the blade is lower than the wood*. It is spinning up, and that means that it is cutting by pushing into the stock which makes the wood act as a backer to prevent tearout. But as you get the the end of the cut, the blade is pushing out of the back. With nothing to hold the stock, it tears instead of cuts, which is why you need a fence behind, but not below. * this requires proper technique of pulling the blade all the way toward you, cutting down, then pushing in rather than just chopping.
  8. It will take 20 minutes to do by hand. You probably don't. Add a thin piece of ply on the back of the saw as a sacrificial fence - that will work fine to prevent tear out. The direction the blade moves means that there shouldn't be any issue on the underside of the piece you are cutting.
  9. Unbelievable. A grand for what should be a warranty replacement?
  10. I love those things, btw. I think they are about the best table saw accessory I have found. They are helpful for sheet goods, but where they really shine is in long rips of hardwood. Cutting trim pieces, for instance. as someone whose thumb is still whole because of a sawstop, I would pretty much refuse to touch a non-sawstop table saw.
  11. Can still damage the laser itself, and most likely voids any warranty.
  12. Ftfy 80 is good for cross cutting. Some of that stuff is PVC which creates hydrochloric acid vapor when lasered.
