"My DC setup for the K5. Like I mentioned before the smaller shop vac gets everything out on every hole every time. There's not enough vacuum to make moving the piece hard yet it does a fantastic…"

"My 10" compound miter table was "dragging" on pivot. I took it to a RIDGID factory authorized dealer & when he looked up my LSA he said it would cost about $60 at the most. Worst case a new saw would be on my door step within 6…"

"I would,, and do,, use prefinished 3/4" Birch or Maple ply from Menards. The left over pieces will make nice shelves with some edge banding. I used to poly the inside of my cabinets & it sucks! Thats why I use prefinished."

4 tier shelving unit

"If you double checked your stop collar setting I would venture to guess it is a case of overdriven screws. Pine will cause that because of the knots. Your preset is too high where there aren't any knots or tight grain around them & too low…"

Glen S replied to Cynthia Alaniz's discussion 'Rip-Cut Ruler'
"Are you leaving the weight of the saw on the rip-cut when you adjust it? I hold the saw off the work piece in one hand & move the guide with my other hand. That way the saw bed doesn't have weight bearing down on the ruler. I hope this…"

Glen S replied to Joe L's discussion 'Pocket screws to attach table tops'
"It matters not which screws you use. What does matter is whether or not you used some sort of clip in a groove,, on the end grain,, so the top can move across it's width with seasonal changes. HTH"

Glen S replied to chris cotter's discussion 'K5 VACUUM'
"The older ShopVac brand hoses with the 12" solid ends are all you need for the K5. They slip right into the port on the K5 & pull all the chips out. I've never had a problem with mine using that older hose. I also have it hooked to a…"

"I have the setup block that came with the bit. It works great but I don't have a micro dial to tune it finely."

Glen S replied to KregRep's discussion 'Making a Drawer Lock Joint'
"That bit can be fussy to set up unless you have a micro dial. Otherwise it does a great job. Very strong joint."

Glen S replied to Ken Kortch's discussion 'Cabinet Hardware Jig - Brad Point Bit vs. Regular Twist Bit'
"I installed 14 pulls like those on 2 different cabinets in the bathroom. I made my own jig from 1/2" ply & two 3/4" cleats. I drilled a 1/8" hole in the jig. Every drawer is the same size so I just drilled the 1/8" hole thru…"

Glen S replied to Dan Smith's discussion 'Plugs For 2x4's'
"Dan-- I've found not all dowels are the same diameter in the bin. I drill a scrap & take it with me to make test fits. Not an every time answer to your problem but it works more often than not. Also I've never mic'ed a step drill…"
