Router split wood - what's suggest - what did I do wrong? - 10 replies

Grizzly coupons? Huh? - 20 replies

Does such a thing exist? Where would I find one? I only have electronic subscription to FineWW so I wonder what else I’m missing. I’ll bet they won’t use the 20% off Harbor Freight coupons in my motorcycle mags….

Delta 22-785x planer? Decent first semi-serious planer? - 7 replies

I’m a noob looking to get a planer, and I’m thinking a nice cab planer would be a nice addition to the shop. vs. a new benchtop model. Found used Delta 22-785X planer.
