Hello fellow LJ’s. I’m stepping out of lurkerland to both advertise my site a bit and to ask a question about what power tool I’ll need first to go forward.
The issue is this: for the first phase of all my Grid Beam projects I’ll be using a 1.75 inch square baluster as my blanks and I need to mill each one down to 1.5 inch square for further processing. Of the following tools, which one would be most time effective in doing this process?
I’m leaning towards buying a thickness sander for this as it seems to me to be the best tool for handling stock with a semi-automatic feed. I’ll also be doing this in my parking lot as I’m apartment bound right now so portability and noise concerns have to be weighed.
