  • Tool Triggered Power Cord For BT3000 And Other Tools

    Tool Triggered Power Cord For BT3000 And Other Tools

    For many years, I have been using the power switch on my BT3000 to turn on the shop vac as well as the saw itself. My old shop vac was a low powered unit and together with the BT3K’s motor didn’t exceed the 20 amp. rating of the contacts in the switch.

Yellow glues like Pro-Bond and Titebond are aliphatic resin glues, which are merely PVA adhesives with additives t...

    A Virtual Tour of the Indianapolis Woodworking Show

    A Virtual Tour of the Indianapolis Woodworking Show This weekend, I made my annual trek to the Indianapolis woodworking show. I have been going every year for the past five years. This year, I was finally fortunate to have a bit of extra money and was able to attend one of the all day seminars. Below are some photos I took specifically for this site. I wanted to give those of you who are not able to attend the shows a glimpse of what they are all about. I struggled with the decision of which w...
