AC ??? - 17 replies
I was recently given a nice window ac. My thoughts are to cut it into the wall. My shop always has this musty smell unless I open the overhead, then it seems like everything sweats. For those that use window ac do you just leave it run or turn it on and off when coming and going. My shop time is very up and down at best. I hate to leave it ...

mdf for wood storage rack?? - 8 replies
So 2 weeks ago I was rebuilding my miter bench(19’ wall of cabinets). I was weighing out my options for a top, and stumbled on mdf at the restore across town. I went out there it was 1/2 off day.

I figured going to a serpentine belt would be way better than the 2 skinny v-belts. I checked grizzly’s website and all the specs say is pulley. There is no info a...
