Ok, maybe I didn’t make it clear –...

I bought some Forstner drill bits that I would classify as medium priced. When I open the box and feel the sharpness they all feel like a dull knife. I didn’t really expect them to be Samurai sharp but I am really wondering if I need to sharpen them or just take them back. Anyone else experience this?

New Ridgid R4512 TS worth returning? - 11 replies
I this new Ridgid R4512 Table saw and put it together and now I am wondering if I should return it because of some defects. See the photos.

Why use an Orbital Sander? - 20 replies
So I don’t have a buddy next door or someone to call and I am a complete novice as is evidence of this question. I see Youtube videos and so forth of people using orbital sanders and I don’t get it.

I have a second hand DP that is the 13 inch Central Machinery. I didn’t realize it at the time I bought it but when I tighten the arm locking handle on the column the table is still loose and still swivels around the column.

Sealing Maple before Danish oil finish - 2 replies
This is actually a continuation of recommendations from you guys to use a Golden Oak Watco Danish oil finish on maple cabinets so that I can match existing kitchen cabinets.

Wood Piano Refurbishing - 18 replies
I would like help with suggestions on what to do with our piano. See the photos. First, what type of wood do you think it is from the photos? Second, as you can see from the close up of the top the wood is very dry and dull looking. Whatever I do it will be done where it stands as I don’t have a way of moving it somewhere without profes...
