I recently bought an HVLP sprayer. So far, I’ve applied water-based finishes while wearing just a cheap respirator. I’d like to get a better respirator for spraying other types of finishes.
I was ripping a oak plywood on my tablesaw. As I was about finished, the plywood climbed up the blade, turned to the left, and became a missile, injuring my left hand. What did I do wrong?
I want to make feather boards from scrapwood. Does grain direction matter? Should I use hardwood or softwood? Is plywood effective?
I recently had a pacemaker put in and, according to my doctor, I can’t get within two feet of my power tools. How do I save my hobby and my health?
