I got an email from FW yesterday and they wanted my input on their website. (Lot’s of other folks also got it, I’m sure.) This post is because they wanted comparisons with LJ! Thought that was cool. Lee

Dust collector pre-collector - 9 replies

Has anyone (else) tried a pre-collector, you know, one of those tops that fit on a plastic trash can as offered by Rockler, Wodcraft, etc.? I made one out of PVC and the plastic top to the trash can and it worked fine, I guess. I found that it only got about half full when the chips started going into the bag at the collector, anyway. From ti...

Wide belt sanders and glue - 6 replies

Just returned from a friends house where I was sanding a glued up board about 30” wide and 3 foot long. I don’t think it makes a difference but the wood was European beech and the glue was Titebond II. We had wiped the board gown while the glue was fresh. I had scraped off a bunch of the glue that had fried this morning. When I...

JOHN GIZMODYNE WHERE ARE YOU??? Don’t they have teacher work days out there? I’m having withdrawal symptoms and miss the Sunday funnies.

A lead in from the cocobolo pen - 3 replies

I’ve noticed a number of posts recently about wood dust and lung diseases and allergies. Don Taylor led me to an eBay seller for something else but he has the forced air breathing hoods. His store is mostly paint associated things. So, I’m wondering if anyone has experience with the hooded respirators and if they are worth the ...
