I’m going to finally order a wood slicer blade for my Rikon 10-325 so I can re-saw wood into thinner pieces. The absolute max height of the wood would be 8”. I know that the existing Rikon saw fence really doesn’t work for me for several reasons, height being one. So I want to buy (not make) one for this purpose. I do hav...

Ultra Duster & Arm R Seal - 9 replies
I’ve been using Arm R Seal as the finish on my boxes for over a year, probably because of comments by Charles Neil. Anyway, I really like it but found I had a problem after using some that I had a skim covering over the liquid after re-opening the can. Now granted I was probably doing everything wrong – using from the can, dumping ...

Grizzly G0716 sander feedback - 5 replies
I’ve looked at the reviews and cannot find anything current on the Grizzly G0716 sander. Evidently there were issues early on, but if it’s a good unit it would fit my requirements.

New Reality Show - 2 replies
Okay – here’s my idea for a good reality show…. The Kardashian Family versus the Robertson Family (Duck Dynasty) on Survivor. Only problem might be that it wouldn’t go too many episodes. First I thought – have them compete on Family Feud, but this would be better. A great Father’s Day gift!
