5/4 Oak for Shaker Cabinet doors - too thick? - 7 replies

Modifying HF Dust Collector without going nuts? - 21 replies

I just picked up a HF dust collector and have read a few threads here and elsewhere on the interwebs about modifying it to make it a little better. Frankly, I don’t have the time at the current moment to do a lot of these mods. Maybe down the road, I will but for right now I just need it to work fairly well. With that said, what very ...
