HVLP System (Earlex, Fuji) - 15 replies
I’m going to get an HVLP system and I’m looking at the Earlex 5500 and the Fuji 2202. The Fuji is $100 more but it has more power and is a non-bleeder so I’m leaning in that direction. Looking for opinions and real world comparisons. I will be spraying mostly water bourne clear coat finishes. Thanks!

Kudos to the Dewalt 735X Planer - 5 replies
I bought my 735 1.5 years ago when it went on sale at Amazon for $440 which included the infeed/outfeed tables, an extra set of blades and free shipping. I needed a planer at that time when the one I had decided to stop working and not be worth repairing. The price and reputation were too good to pass up. In the time that I’ve owned it, it...

Grizzly 1023RLW 3HP Table Saw - 2 replies
I’m selling my Grizzly 1023RLW 3HP 10” Table Saw which is in excellent condition. The saw features a cast iron router table wing. The saw is about a year old. I love this saw but am planning to get a SawStop. I don’t think for a minute the SS will cut any better but, being a musician, the technology is pretty enticing. Price is...

I’m looking at SS again and was wondering what the main differences are between the Professional and Industrial series. I know the ICS is heavier and all but what makes it cost $1000 more?

Nailer Kit/Compressor Question - 15 replies
I’m getting ready to buy a nailer kit or will perhaps go with separates. For a kit I’m looking at the Dewalt kit that can be bought for $289 on Amazon or the new Porter Cable kit that can be bought for $299. The Dewalt features 2 guns and the PC has 3.

Grizzly G9956 or Jet AFS100B Air Filtration System - 16 replies

Table Saw Blade Choice - 27 replies
I’m getting ready to buy some new blades, I’ve been mostly using combination blades like the Freud Fusion. I’m thinking about buying a dedicated rip blade and crosscut blade. Seems to me a blade designed for a specific task would be better than a combination blade. My question is, what are you guys using the most? Combination b...

Bandsaw with riser block opinions - 13 replies
I currently have a Grizzly 555LX that I like very much. I generally never resaw 5” and this saw does it with ease, much better than an old Delta I used to have. Occasionally I may have a need to resaw 7-8” boards and will need the riser kit. However I’ve heard some folks dislike riser kits on 14” saws because they feel th...
