Well, I had a 220v outlet wired in the garage years ago, so it's as convenient as anything else that plugs in. Having the extra amperage definitely makes things go more smoothly; it seems like a very powerful motor.

I'll probably just bite the bullet and buy a Incra or a Briesemeyer fence system.

Thanks for the guidance, guys.

I FOUND A STRIPPER! FINALLY!

Just an FYI.

I am always unwilling to strip for a client. I'll do it for myself, but that's 'cause time and money aren't as important then.

I only said "yes" this time, because it was for a friend I've known since we were 11. He lives in a 100 yr old house with casings and moldings with profiles on top of profiles.

Peel Away #6 is my new best friend. Not entirely easy breezy, but the best yet. No elbow at all, just gentle scraping with proflie scrapers and I got off 4 layers of paint and at least as many coats of varnish(es). $60 a gal. Worth it all.

But I'm still never gonna tell another client that I can strip for them, too. Family and friends only.

Canada's best strippers always came from Mississauga.

I had a really nice chat with one of them in Montreal. Is it me or is it just plain wierd to have a conversation about your hometown with a woman getting naked in front of you?

What if she was lap dancing to a guy from Big Bone Lick Ky, or Dildo NFLD....

"I want to tell you about Big Bone Lick...."

For those of you "Woodies" out there w/o a real dust collection system, check out this amazing price.

The great Jet that I bought two years ago changed my life, my attitude about being in the shop, cleaning up, waiting for dust to settle or get sucked into ceiling mounted filter unit, just went on sale at Jet.com (and dealers??) for $200 less than I paid in '08. It's the only 115v unit out there w/ a steel filter cage that can pull 1100 cfm w/o needing 220v. And it's not 98" like most of the good ones. I think it's about 76.

Year after year, I bought toys instead. It should have been the first thing to come immed. after the table saw and dual-bevel slider 10 years ago.

I bought one of those a couple of years ago too, Bob. Model 1100 something or another, with the 1-micron filter and remote control (wish it was like the new RF ones, though!)

And just before the Axiom trip, bought the ceiling mounted air cleaner while it's on sale, too. Haven't done anything with it yet, it's still in the box. But I always told myself that I'd get one once I got all the asbestos out of the basement. (I didn't want one before, because anything with a fan would have stirred things up...!

BTW, Joyce easily OK'd that purchase right after I used the belt sander for a couple of hours with the basement door open to the kitchen.

Yup, next day she told me to buy one of them sawdust things.

Now I'm trying to figure out how to get an external amp to be her idea.
