Hey guys, just wanted to share one of my recent videos that might be helpful to those that don't have a truck or a van to move materials(or even projects). I explain how I made my material transportation rails that fit on my roof racks and show how I carry full 4x8 sheets with my car. Hope you guys find it helpful!

Hey guys, if any of you found the table saw overarm dust collector helpful that I built awhile back, here is an update with some additions and modifications.  I also modified my cross cut sled to make it work even better with the overarm.

To end off 2016 I've just released a blooper reel of some of the bloopers and outtakes from the past year.  I would also like to thank everyone that watches and also everyone that has purchased MPT plans.  The support has been very much appreciated.  As the first year of DP Shop Talk, 2016 has been a great year with a lot of growth.  I realize that I don't use any Festool gear but I hope that you guys have found some of my jigs and methods helpful.  I have all new episodes coming out for 2017 starting on January 7th with a full review of the GRS-16 track saw guide rail square from TSO Products so stay tuned for that.  Hope you enjoy the blooper reel and I'd like to wish you and your family a Happy New Year!

I enjoy your videos thanks for sharing them. As a former maritimer,  I have to say you have a very mild accent. No doubt you're a Canuck but I wouldn't have guessed Nova Scotia. Of course I've been in the South so long now I've all but lost my Canadian accent and get harrassed when I go home now. But I digress ;)

Quick question about your tablesaw dust shroud. Do you have the vac wired to the tablesaw or do you have to manually turn it on/off each time?

That's interesting about the accent.  I guess it's hard for me to tell since I've lived here for most of my life other than the 6 years that I lived in PEI.  Always interesting to hear how things come across to other people :)

I use an iVac switch to control my dust extractor which is what I hook up to the overarm collector.  I keep the remote clipped on my pocket so it's always with me so it's super easy to turn the vac on and off.  The 1 HP collector that is hooked to the bottom of the table saw gets turned on and off manually but where it sits right beside the table saw it's easy to do.

Here is this week's DP Shop Talk episode, a full review of the GRS-16 track saw guide rail square. I put both models of the GRS-16 to work in my shop over the past couple months and was very impressed with them. See them in action and get all of my thoughts on them in this week's episode. Hope you guys find it helpful.

I just released an episode on how to make dust collection upgrades to the Bosch Axial Glide saw.  I thought I would post it up in case any of you guys have this saw and are wanting to improve the dust collection.  You can download a free PDF plan for the dust boot if you would like to make your own.  The other mod that I've seen is people attaching the dust boot from a Kapex to the Axial Glide with decent results but this setup seems to capture more dust since the boot is bigger.  The Kapex definitely has the Bosch beat in terms of stock dust collection setup though.  I wasn't very happy with the stock setup on the Bosch.  Hope you guys find the episode helpful.

I just released the follow up episode to the dust mods episode showing the other additions and upgrades that I made to my miter saw.  They include a zero clearance fence plates, a zero clearance insert as well as sliding material supports with flip stops.  The material supports help let me make the most out of the space in my shop since I don't need a dedicated miter saw station with this setup.  Have any of you guys made zero clearance inserts for your Kapex?  Hope you find the episode helpful.

I just released a new instructional how-to episode on how to design, build and install a set of pull out shelves for existing cabinets.  Pull outs are a great way to upgrade existing or new cabinets with better storage efficiency and ergonomics.  Hope you guys find the episode helpful and let me know if you have any questions!

I just released a full review video of the Tacklife HD-40 laser measure.  If you're looking for a laser measure that is accurate, has lots of useful features and is priced very competitively, the HD-40 is definitely worth a look.  I've been using it on the condo renovation jobs I've been working on lately and it has performed very well.  You can get all of my thoughts as well as see it in action in this latest episode of DP Shop Talk.
