  1. Most returns are on interior walls and don't have louvers that can be closed but then again it doesn't mean it's the right grille. But with an outside window I'd bet good money on a supply vent. As a retired HVAC guy I feel confident but then again I have been wrong again. As far as comfort, I have one under my open desk and it feels great to me but then my wife hates it when she's at my desk. Women have a tendency to be cooler then men but again not all. As you can see I'm leaving plenty of escape room for myself as 33 years of marriage has taught me.
  2. Excellent results indeed. So you're in Minnesota now? The only thing that might become an issue that I see, or it would be for my wife, is the air duct right where she sits. Maybe a diverter but not much anywhere to divert to. As small as the room is it's likely the only air vent. How close does it sit to the wall? Maybe an upward diverter? Not taking away from the desk which I love but thinking of a comfort level while using it.
  3. Here's to a fast recovery. Unfortunately it's one of the more nerve sensitive areas and will take a good while. You may well find ice packs to be a very good friend in the near future. Sorry you had to teach us a lesson but sharing that really puts a face on the possibilities. Now you need to come up with a good cover story for the future. Like defending yourself from a machete wielding lunatic while trying to get that last pack of toilet paper back in 2020 in Costco. But seriously, get well.......
  4. Funny thing is if you did then I forgot so it's new to me....maybe a gain. Beautiful work. I have a very soft spot for Hickory.
  5. If you look at the contact info it's a gmail account and about us tells you nothing of who they are or where they are located. Their return policy is the same page as their privacy policy. If this doesn't smell of a scam I have some nice property with an historic bridge to sell you.....cheap.
  6. Most definitely a scam and I wouldn't give them any form of credit card info. If I were inclined I'd use something like PayPal to hide all details of payment. But seriously, check and see who these people are. Is there a phone number to call them? Where are they located? ZDo some diligence before giving them anything. Usually to good to be true is exactly that. Not gonna happen.
  7. Here's to hoping all will be better now and a quick recovery. The hardest part is the waiting. Good luck to you both.
  8. I thought of that as well when he "slipped " the spline in the grove.
  9. I'm thinking more like a kickback where the hand gets broken.......
  10. Interesting and easy to do. What I find interesting is the fact that he didn't mention to be sure to use the same blade for the spline cuts and the splines themselves. I guess that should be taken for granted but.......I don't always think that clearly. But then the sled design looks nice and the cutouts for the fence to allow clamps works well I worry about using the hand as a hold down method. Should something go wrong the hand is mostly captive and that looks dangerous to me. Don't go calling me a wuss just yet as many haven't experienced just how quickly a mishap can happen on a fast moving tool. Thankfully I have a Sawstop that really helps with that but many don't so I think worth mentioning. I would think it far safer to reach over the top of the fence to hold the piece of wood than through the fence opening but that's me. Seems he has a series of interesting videos worth watching. Plans would be nice.....
  11. Thanks for the tip.....their on their way.
  12. I've been threatening myself to do something like that ever since I built the miter saw station. Those 16 - 28" deep drawers hold a mess of stuff and it seems I've moved that stuff around a few times and never remember just where so I do the hide and seek thing that really tests my patience. Did I mention my patience seems thin at times like my memory? I decided to go a more aesthetic route and try to find some large drawer label frames like those used on the old library reference files but no joy so far. That way when I move the stuff again I can move the label simply by lifting the printed card out of the frame. I like the idea but haven't been able to locate these drawer label frames just yet. But you're way ahead of me as is.
  13. Agree with you on that John and that's why I like the Powermatic 719T. It has the sliding table and able to do angled mortises along with the clamping ability.
  14. Sounds like either dull hollow mortise bit or defect in handle. I would think this was the exception versus the normal. I've seen plenty of videos showing it doing just that without issue but they also weren't putting their full weight on the handle either. I think if something like this were to happen I would likely be calling support before trying different bits. Just saying it's easy to miss something. Were these people experienced with this type of machine?
  15. Thanks John. My thoughts are that for larger projects the chisels would be the way to go as they would be seldom needed and no need to invest to cover for that. I have the better half as a bookkeeper and getting approval isn't approached lightly although she's easy to work with. So far from what I've seen online I really like the Powermatic 719T freestanding model. It allows upto a 1" hollow chisel bit and centers at 4" from fence so that will take me up to 8" width if I'm looking at this right. I also like the ability to securely hold the work versus the benchtop models and the extra HP doesn't hurt. Larry I've looked at those and again securing the work piece is a major concern. My old Clausan DP is 3/4 HP but lacks the geared raiser for the table which makes it a real pia to make the adjustments. I've also considered the attachment for my Shopsmith Mark 7 but prefer to keep it setup as a dedicated lathe if possible. The attachment for the Mark 7 is $183 but only goes up to 1/2" and again securing the wood is an issue as I see it. I might feel differently if I had seen one of these used in person but that hasn't been possible yet. At 65 I'm focused a good deal more on the safety aspect not that it's ever been a major concern but these days the grip isn't what it was 30 years ago and I seem to bleed a lot easier.......
