I recently went digging through my late Grandfather’s garage and found a practically new Craftsman 1 1/2hp router with the box, but no instructions. I decided to buy a small router table at a local box store knowing it wasn’t anything great but just something to try my hand at for the time being. I finally got around to using it today. I’m finally finishing the cabinet doors I’ve been putting off for months, and decided to route the dadoes using the table. For some rea...

The table saw starts even faster now, but the same problem exists with the other two motors. I unhooked the belts...
I am trying out a new video feed. The service I was using before and have been using for years just kept adding ads and then got to the point to where they’d put a commercial on the videos and the feed at start-up.
