    I make small toys and such. I use modpog for the color items. My question is the finish to use over water based stains, dye's etc. Is it lacquer or varnish, or other.

    I hear about the problems people are having with planers? I have a Ry bio, that I have had for about 7 years and I don't have the problems with snipe or other problems. Is there something wrong with the planer or am I doing things wrong, I don't have a problem with it so I will never be able to fix it.

    I'm making tools now and needed a good band saw to cut and re-saw. I had one I bought that was awful and sent to it back to the store, I won't say the name. I then looked at the Wen and bought one, the first one was damaged in shipment and sent it back. I received another one that is great, except the re-saw. I have a problem with blade drift when I use the fence! I can free hand just fine but when I use the fence it has a bad blade drift. I don't seem to get any information of how to set adjust the saw to prevent this. I love the saw and it's a great buy for the quality and 6" re-saw. thank you Ed

    Thanks for an interesting presentation I know the . Sorry Jim got lost, but that's the way it goes sometimes. I know the echo is from hard shop walls but can something be done to tame it down a bit? GerryB, Oregon coast

    From Pennsylvania... No questions at the moment, but more of a comment or two. For one, the audio was between 0.25 to 0.5 seconds behind the video.. More of a suggestion, George could really use a wireless mic... The echo when in the 'main shop' section, it rather annoying. The audio signal when in the smaller 'wing' shop, is much better. With such an operation, I think investing in a wireless microphone is a well worthwhile thing to look into... Love the live feeds and will look forward to more of them in the future. Thanks for all you do.
