  1. Okay, a VERY COOL bench appliance. But I’m wondering about the usefulness of the bench top behind the vice. Is that to raise up the work surface for chopping out waste, carving, or other tasks for which your regular bench is too short? You and Mike Farmington are my go-to guys for such knowledge, but yours differs greatly with that auxiliary bench. Wondering why you chose to add that. Great work and choice of music too!

  2. gloomy rain? :O, no no no, and no! I live on the Wet Coast of Vancouver Island, it rains here too, from Oct 31 to June 11. BUT! I love the sound of rain. And the smell. Ah, nothing better than rain in the Winter. In the Winter! And besides, don't you live on the river? That must be nice in the rain too. That is some Jointer/Planer you got there. Enjoy your weather!

  3. Do not use templates with real holes. Use templates with marking holes, for example, 5 to 8 milimeters. It is much more accurate and you can drill real holes from both sides and there will not be tear.

  4. Jay, how well do you like your Ruckus Discord Bluetooth Earplug Earbuds? I am thinking about asking Santa a pair of them. And do they also work well if you are not playing music?

  5. I would lock/weld the handles onto to threaded rod so it doesn't protrude out the front, but when clamped it feeds through the rear jaw over the bench you're clamped to.

  6. When you use a milling machine, you have to move the wood against the rotation, in this way you have less probability to burn the wood, and you have more smooth finishing.

  7. At 12:57 you should have waxed the outside of your Forstner bit before drilling. I usually use the "Solid Tapping and Threading Lubricants" McMaster Carr, 1009K22. Other holes squeeked like they could use some was as well. The washers are spherical washers at 21:18. Good video. Thanks.

  8. Just found your channel Jay and I have to say the additional Mortal Combat/transformer sound FX and cameo pop up made me an instant subscriber. It was refreshing to see your process "on the fly" as you work and helps is so many ways words can not describe in a short comment. Simply , Thank. YOU!

  9. Excellent video and process. Also, love the pic of you and your Son. Father and Son business. You are a great inspiration keep up the excellent work. Thanks for sharing.

  10. The handled nuts are cost effective, but the round wheel type nuts have a flywheel effect and adjust considerably faster. Might be worth the extra cost to install them. Great video Jay!

  11. Jay,
    A tip for reducing the "squeal" and heat build up when drilling is to wipe a light coat of paste wax on the bit. This also has the benefit of keeping your bit sharper longer. This trick is especially helpful when using bits like Forstners and augers as they have such a large contact surface and are therefore more prone to binding and heat build up.

  12. There are 120 million Google Home devices sold, plus all the Android stuff in the world. Best practice is to garble voice-activation commands so you don't make a sports radio station "the fan" play over your content.
