You mean the diablo ones? I bought a flush cut one the other day and about had a stroke. Dang thing was $22.
That's not bad, I just priced a set of stile and rail shaper cutters for making doors......$920

Very nice and clean. What dust collector are you using? Do you like it or would you do something different? Thanks

I have the harbor freight one.

It works fine. I don't have anything to compare it to though.

Love them! So easy. My new plan is to plywood all the walls and add some more. My shelves will only be for bins and lumber storage.

I plan on doing them in our master closet and the pantry in my house.

Couple of recent shop projects. The cyclone is awesome. The auto switch for the shop vac on the miter saw is pretty nice. I never forgot to turn on the dust collector!

I struggle with organization. I have all the cabinets, drawers, and space. Just cant figure out what is the best way for storage. Keeps changing. I need a woman in my shop to organize it. Not my wife.... cause she always put my stuff away. Then when i cant find it "I never touched it" Then a year later i find it under the kitchen sink, or in the kids toy box.

Made a table for my miter saw today. Underneath will be cabinets for storage. I cut a hole in the plywood wall and ran my hose off the miter saw to my shop vac for dust collection.

Looks good! Having a shop vac on a miter saw helps a whole lot! Plus having a level table top is nice! Keep posting pictures

Anyone have trouble with their miter saw not. Cutting like it should when it goes in?

Iíve tried to square it up and adjust the fence. Itís a one piece fence Craftsman sliding single bevel. I bought it to basically use it for a chop saw and it works good for that. But I went to cut some trim with it and I noticed it wasnít cutting true. When it goes in, it appears to get closer to the left side of the fence cut out.

There's only a few things that could do this ... I started with the simplest.

I love using this radial arm saw but the dang thing is so hard to move around. Not any more. I'm going to do all my saws like this.

I did. It's squared at one point, not at another. I thought about taking the fence off and splitting it so see if I can make it better.
