    Need to figure out if this saw is wired for 220 or 110. A friend of mine got it for free, decided he can't keep it, but it has no plug, so no easy clues as to how it's wired. It's an old Delta tilt-top table saw. Can you electric gurus tell by looking at the wiring of the switch (first...

    Hey there, I'm working on a set of bunk beds and the plans call for gluing up three 3/4" thick pieces to form the legs. Basically, it's just a straight lamination of straight grain to straight grain on red oak. From what I understand, that's a pretty safe situation for gluing…right? What glue...
