    That's waaaay overthinking it for no reason. While you might technically be right, glue choice and grain direction in dowels makes absolutely zero difference in practise; you're going to break...

    24T ATB would be my pick. Stay away from thin kerf. Bushes make no difference as long as they fit properly.

    I've managed to joint over length boards with just a single roller stand about 1m past the end of the outfeed table. It's actually surprisingly easy to set up, just joint the wood as far as you can,...

    You get the spurs for a cleaner hole. Maybe twist drills are good enough off that jig, just a thought.

    All it needs is a narrow wheel for your bench grinder and even that is optional as they can be done on a standard width wheel as well. Of course, I'm working on the assumption that everyone owns a...

    There's a foolproof solution to drills wandering: Brad point.

    I genuinely don't understand why people use plain twist drills in wood, they're just objectively worse :?

    Even a short bed shouldn't have problems with 1400 long. It might be technique, but it also might be the tables not parallel to each other or the knives not being level with the outfeed table so I'd...

    It's the Shetland version :p

    8.5 kw sounds like mega overkill; the CNC at my old work was only 5.5kw and I never ran out of power, even when running a 12mm bit through 32mm ply

    The 1/3 thing is just a good starting point. Of course, there's no harm in trying less first because you can always take more off, but I actually think the taper in the picture works as-is; the...

    I used to do them with an impact driver (slowly, of course), 4 clunks and they're good. If the insert is seating properly at the back, it's physically impossible to twist them; that's the whole point...

    Got a generic 2hp Leda extractor at work and the noise is horrendous. Is it simply because it's got a 6" hose to the work area but only 5" between the fan and the bag?

    You need a bloody big bandsaw to keep up with a table saw feed. Also, you can't run a rebate or trench with a bandsaw; not saying you would use this machine for that, but you could.
