  5. @grayngreen I thought he said “Radial”… which is what it is.

  6. @MillyVanillification We’ve done it both ways in our shops. We gutted an
    old hay barn about 36 x 48 and put our shop in there. We bought the dust
    collection system at auction from the local high school… 60hp baby! With
    the wooden floor it’s a much cleaner and neater look running the duct work
    below the deck and out of the shop. We moved to a 10,000 sq. foot facility
    with concrete floors… no such luck goin under the floor lol, but the
    industrial look was pretty cool.

    Cannot hear you 

  13. Agree 100%, but sometimes guards just get in the way. Like im 18 and been
    in woodworking for 10 years, when i got into grade 11 woodworking at school
    they introduced fixed safety guards for drill presses and routers. More
    people got hurt with these stupid guards then without them, and table saw
    guards , i just straight up hate them, ill ditch the guard and keep the
    riving knife on. Its all in the user not the machine. 

  14. from Canada:

    …with almost nothing….spoiled [ Americans ] with their zillion dollar
    options, still know ‘nothing’..
    …IF you want to see real woodwork….punch up some European Castles
    etc…..and that was before any power tools at all…..

    my friend Sam after a lifetime of fighting built the most beatiful piece of
    art with it. 

  20. Nice video content! Excuse me for chiming in, I am interested in your
    opinion. Have you heard about – Antonello Astonishing Woodwork Takeover (do

    the most beatiful woodwork creation with it. 

  21. Can’t hear you half the time. But it looks nice.
