New tips seem endless. This episode has even more tips, most of which I have never seen, but some I use myself and will be adopted into future woodworking projects.

This is a topic I wish I had covered earlier. I had been told by a few woodworkers I know that they had been using a blade called the Freud Fusion table saw blade and were extremely happy with the cuts it was making ... and this was a General Purpose Blade!!

Dust collectors are not associated with much of a variety of "accessories" but there are a few and today I am going to touch on a couple of recent upgrades I made to my new Oneida Mini Gorilla Dust Collector.

I know ... some people will think I am joking, but anyone who reads the title, and has a finger, wrist, or another part of the body injured when a drill bit accidentally "grabbed" the wood, or metal they were holding with their hands, and turned it into a spinning jackhammer, will know I am not joking. Drill presses are geared very low which means they can deliver a LOT of force, and if you think you can hold a piece of wood or metal with your hand, that gets "grabbed" by a drill bit, you are wrong.

Think about this ... my drill press has a 110 Volt, 9 amp motor, not huge, but that equates to 1-1/4 horsepower. How many times have you been drilling with a battery-powered hand drill that "grabbed the wood" and twisted the drill right out of your hand or at least tried to (and maybe even caused an injury)? That is a lowly battery-operated cordless drill and it can do that, imagine what a drill press could do that has probably 5 times the force.

Since then I have come to rely on them for other similar kinds of products and Starbond has continued to innovate their line of products by making a new product that fills other needs in woodworking and other mediums that have unique requirements for their specific line of work.
