festool patents? - 19 replies

I could really use the festool domino, but refuse to pay what they’re asking for it. Aside from other joinery systems (like biscuits, dowels, pocket screws), I would really like to know when other companies, like Makita, Bosch, etc can legally copy the design and build their own versions of the domino. I refuse to pay outrageous sums of ...

condensation into rust - 3 replies

Here in north Philly it has been very cold lately. My detached 2 car workshop is unheated (for now). But today the high reached 51 outside, while the inside of my shop remained cold. Imagine my surprise when I came home from work today to find my table saw coated with newly formed rust that wasn’t there this morning. I wiped of the con...

I’m thinking about making some purchases on an irs auction, but there are a number of requirements that need to be met before bidding. I don’t quite understand what this means: Has anyone here bought anything from them? How was your experience? Were there any rules to...

titebond III vs titebond extend - 23 replies

I know there are other topics about slow setting glues, but I wanted to post this anyway. Recently I’ve lost 6 (that’s right, SIX) cutting boards due to my titebond II setting up before I was finished adjusting them in the clamps. Now I thought I was being efficient by trying to glue 3 at a time in some 48” parallel clamps an...

How would you two piece an armoire? - 4 replies

I am going to start building two armoires soon, for my wife and me. The trick is, I have to two-piece them because our doorway is 76” high, and the awkward layout of the narrow halls + 3 doorways prevents the pieces from being carried on its side. Her piece will be about 80”H, not including the feet and some decorative crown or som...

card scraper 1st time long time - 7 replies

I was just making a few cutting boards to improve some areas in my woodworking and came across a shiny new set of scrapers that were never used. After my last glue-up, I had to do some heavy sanding. I felt the top of the boards, which were flat, but not perfect. I could feel the lines between the wood. I used a plain scraper for (I kid you ...

Costly raised panel doors - 10 replies

I’ll try to sum this up quick. I would like advice of what I could do to make some big armoire raised panel doors cheaper. And please advise if you would do something differently (and you probably would). I just finished my first big project, a 3 piece entertainment center with 4 raised panel doors. Painted thank goodness. Next project...

outfeed table problem - 10 replies

I’ve been a lurker to this site for some time, but I’ve signed up with a question. My outfeed table for my TS doubles as an assembly table. It sits about 1/4” below TS top and has routed grooves for the runners of my jigs. Believe it or not, I’ve never cut anything at a 45i on my TS until the other day, and I noticed t...
