  1. The cast iron tables are nice but they are kind of small depending on what your are doing. If your going that route I'd look for a used shaper that accepts an adapter to run 1/2 in router bits. At work we typically make router tables. At home I have one mounted in a 4x8 work table which is nice as there is plenty of area to support the material. A lot depends on how much you plan on using it. a couple of months ago I bought this one on craigslist for 200.00with the routers
  2. You will have a very hard time getting a clean line with a jig saw. I'd rough cut it with a jig saw, then make a template out of 1/4" MDF and make the final cut with a router trim / pattern bit. Then round over the sharp edges. You will probably have to swing a radius to make the template. I would try and double stick some MDF or other bendable material to the windscreen when cutting with a jig saw so the "bounce" of the saw doesn't crack it. Also tape off the base or put felt on it, so you don't scratch the windscreen
  3. The video with a file on a drill is just horrible... a round chain saw file is not made to be "spun", its cuts on the push stroke. There is just so much wrong with that arcticle
  4. I stopped watching at about 1:45 into the video. you'll never get my money. For about 90% of the uses you showed I would just use my 1/4 drive cordless impact. When I was a mechanic I would have just used an air ratchet for any engine work. I'm also sure I could break it pretty quick putting lug nuts on like you show in the video.
  5. No comment on the bent base. But I think your borrowing trouble about them not honoring the warranty. I'd worry about it when and if it ever happens.
  6. Personally I'm not a fan of cordless nailers yet. Yes, they are convenient, but very heavy and slow IMO, I'm sure they will improve in the future. I'd rather invest in a good light weight hose and quiet air compressor
  7. Milwaukee needs to get the bugs out of their forward / Rev switch with on their 18v impact. My one key which gets very little use has been sent back once, and my Surge will be going back for its 3rd repair. Oddly I have never had any issues with my 1st gen 18v impact

  9. I've been happy with this one https://evacuumstore.com/p-28702-miele-fashionmaster-b3847-ironing-system-with-steam-and-handheld-steamer.aspx?utm_source=google_shopping&utm_medium=cpc&utm_campaign=Miele+-+Shopping+-+Vacuums&utm_term=shopping&utm_content=sL4g4csAL_pcrid_102396770229_pkw__pmt__pdv_c_slid__product_28702-31432--_pgrid_14618343669_ptaid_pla-487732502632_&gclid=EAIaIQobChMIjub3te_74QIVjp6fCh0IsACZEAQYASABEgJExfD_BwE
