Food safe epoxy? Need opinions. - 4 replies

Opinions needed, please let me know what you think: Mas, System Three, Interlux epoxy Many believe these epoxies to be food safe and dishwasher safe.

Air Filtration System - 25 replies

I’m a newbie here on L J and just getting back into woodworking so please forgive me if I ask silly questions. While I’m typing I want to thank everyone for all the help. This is a great place to learn. I have already saved big bucks on tool purchases with advice from L J’s. This is sort of a repost as I put it on the end of a review of a JDS C...
