Just opened my email from Menards and saw The SDD for the low low price of $149.00. That is the cheapest I have ever seen it. I’ve had one for the past couple of years . If your in the market for one, now is the time to buy. http://www.menards.com/main/tools-hardware/power-tools-accessories/wet-dry-vacuums-accessories/super-dust-deputy...

He told me that I don’t need one and that they are dangerous! I never used one, and I would only use it for cross cutting and dados. I’m hoping if someone could tell me who uses them i...

I have a HR dust collector with the 2hp motor and it runs great. I was walking through and noticed that HF sells electric motors. Has anyone bought and used these motors . What opinions do you have about them and are they junk or a hidden gem?

I was throwing around the idea of getting roller guides for my Jet 14” band saw. Do roller guides make a big difference on how well the saw runs and cuts? I just want to make sure it’s worth spending the money for the guides or should I just stay with my cool blocks. I look forward to reading your responses, thanks Alan
