    Hello everyone, I've been going down the rabbit hole of trying to find high quality precision measuring tools without breaking the bank. It seems like the best way to go is with some cheapo tools ( Empire, Groz, Swanson) or go expensive (Starrett, Woodpeckers, etc.) These are the main tools...

    Hey everyone, my dad just upgraded to a Laguna Fusion 2, so he gave me his old craftsman saw from the 80’s. I have refurbished the saw, tuned it up and it’s mostly working great. The problem I have is with the original rip fence for the saw. I squared it up with the saws mitre groove, but it...

    Hi everybody. Newly registered I have a simple question. Even on expensive squares the numbers for inches or centimeters on the blade sometimes are in reverse order. Starting with 0 at the end of the blade and ending at the stock. This does not make any sense to me, or does this serve any...

    I am making a potting bench for my wife and I have a door question. I've made two doors by butting 7 1x3s together and screwing them together with 2 support boards on the back of each door. It appears the door on the right is to be fitted in a space that is square. The one on the left doesn't...
