Home Improvement & Other Projects / Re: anchoring an island

My understanding (I work in the NY City and surrounding area, follow the NYC and IRC) is any outlet within 6 feet of a water source must be GFIC type or as part of a GFIC circuit. NYC is also requiring arc fault protected circuitry for kitchen appliances.

Finishing and Painting / Graco Triton
« Last post by tjbnwi on Today at 10:34 PM »
Sprayed these doors using the Graco Triton with a Graco Compliant Air Spray gun. 1.4mm nozzle/needle, pressure was set at 18 psi on the fluid side, 20 psi on the air side, final air pressure was regulated at the gun.

Color was achieved with TT dye, blended/worked to mocha, finish is KA+ DRE.

The 1.4 is a little to large, would have preferred an 0.8 or 1.0.

Updated my rotators also.

1 meter behind the blade of a Table Saw sounds a bit tight, unless you plan to do all your ripping with the track saw. Will (or could) your tablesaw be on a mobile base such that you could move it when you need more outfeed space?
This is a good point!  I had planned on putting the table saw on mobile base, yes, but I was also thinking of installing Incra TS-LS system, which may require leg support to the floor, making the table saw not-so-mobile.

The 1 meter clearance was already taking into account moving the table saw out from the wall by that 1 metre.  Whilst it would be possible to move it yet further, it would require me to move other workbenches out of the way (which I could make mobile to facilitate this).  That would gain an additional 0.6 metres at the back end of the saw.

The only other option I can see is to place the table saw in such a way as to partly "cover" a roller door.  Given a total room width of 3.2 metres, the roller door occupies 1.8 metres of this space, with 0.7 metres of wall either side.  If I were to place the table saw in such a way as to put the router table in front of the solid wall, and the table saw section in front of the roller door (providing I still had enough room to get in and out to one side), then the outfeed section of the table saw would be as simple as opening the roller door, and putting mobile outfeed tables at the back.

Thanks for all the responses.

Sounds like one person is experiencing the same - sipo fits looser around the circumference of the tendon.  My tennis are both stored in the same location in their plastic bags.  The sipo wiggles a bit from side to side and top to bottom while the beech is sung enough to have to pull with pliers (as one respondent also said).  I suppose the sipo will swell to fill up most if not all the space when I add pva glue.  Thanks again.

Festool Tool Problems / Re: vac-sys how to clamp small objects?

Depending on what it is and what you're doing to it...

Just drill a hole in any non-pourous material, like melamine or something, and use it as a gasket between your workpiece and the clamp.

What Shane said.

Other than the banshee screaming of the Sears, it is a perfect setup.

LOL!  I hear you on that. Pun intended! [big grin]

I haven't even tried to register tools figuring that it's not possible at this time.
Is there a time limit on how soon you have to register after purchase?

How about this?  Should be easy to adapt to the Festool pump.

Festool Tool Problems / vac-sys how to clamp small objects?
« Last post by richk on Today at 09:41 PM »
I have the full set of vac-sys suction heads but even the smallest head is still too big to get suction on my workpiece.

Does anyone have any suggestions on how gerry-rig this to work?

Thanks in advance for your help.
