Dear folks, I have been in a quandary lately, I have some extra funds for this year, and I would like to purchase a table saw. But I cannot decide which one I want, so I am coming to the membership to help me decide. You'll see a poll I created with the table saws I have in mind to purchase. Can you please participate in my poll, and vote for the brand you find most reliable in your experience. Thanks! This is a test topic for our new polling feature, please see tutorial at:
In looking at the poll for a proposed gathering, it's seems August is clearly a leader in the minds of most. So Far at least 8 members have voted. Anyone else who want to chime in please do so. I'll wait until this weekend ( 3/24) for others then close this poll and then try to zero in on the exact date. Thanks to all who have voted so far, and for putting up with my incompetence in setting this up. Here is the poll thread. Here is the original proposal.
One of my sons-in-law has asked for "a good hammer" for a Christmas present. He does a lot of home remodeling and carpentry project (not so much cabinetmaking). I don't want to be spending $100+ for a titanium luxury hammer. "Something to hammer in and pull out nails," was his request. Force = mass x acceleration, you know. Most of my hammers I've had for 30 or 40 years and many of them are older than that, so I'm not current on the market. Any likes or dislikes with the brands out there? I have a 16 oz leather handle Estwing that I like but heard once some carpentry foremen won't allow them on the job (why, I don't know). I have a couple of Hart Framers and they seem to be pretty good, but I don't do a lot of rough carpentry. Before I this request I was walking out of a Lowe's and amazed there were 30 or so different hammers in their hammer section. Really? Edit: Home Depot has at least 106 hammers available online.
