Clearvue Cyclone Paint - 3 replies
Hi everyone, I bought the CV 1800 Clearvue Cyclone back almost 2 years ago. I am just getting around to putting it up now. It is the original style with the bare MDF and not the new painted version.

Hello everyone,I am new to woodworking and soon to start purchasing the big tools for my shop. The first is a saw stop table saw. I was thinking about all the bigger tools and was wondering.

Hearing protection - 45 replies
Hello folks, I just broke my earmuffs I brought from HD. Do any of you use these noise cancelling headsets or recommend a good set. I think I paid about $20 for the HD ones but they were not good enough as I found using a sander and shop vac to be a bit loud. I believe in you get what you pay for. Thanks,Dan
