  1. I have really followed your videos on the new shop which I am very envious. I no longer have a shop but still do woodworking building tables, chairs and cabinets. I have portable work tables that I set up in the yard when the weather is good. Being in Florida, the weather is mostly hot, humid with periods of rain. I was impressed watching the CNC run with no sawdust or debris flying out. So nice to see the extraction system in real action.

  2. I can't be the only older person who enjoys seeing a hard working younger person do well for themselves.

    I did notice that when the stock needed cutting down you disappeared, and you let the guy in the orange hat do all the work.

  3. Acabo de retirar mi suscripcion, te has convertido en un potentado de las maquinas, eso no es bricolaje, es una porquería, no todos tenemos tanto espacio como tu, sino talleres pequeños. No disponemos de dinero para adquirir herramientas carísimas, así que has perdido un suscriptor, y no volveré a ver mas un video tuyo, lo siento. Desde Bizkaia en spain.

  4. Jay, have you seen Paoson Woodworking's workbench? The adaptation with track saw ripping and crosscutting is unlike any other benches I have seen. I would highly recommend watching that video if you have not and possibly adapt it into your "final" assembly table

  5. I noticed the CNC is an Axiom Precision that looks to be a 48" bed. Is that the basic or pro model? Can you or have you shared the spec of the CNC? I really enjoyed the video, thanks!

  6. so around 8:00 you were talking about stop blocks. In metal CNC some machines will let you probe for the material, and in same cases also correct on the fly for the material being out of square on the machine, by taking multiple probes down a straight face and adjusting the coordinate system to match the work, instead of the machine. It can get pretty crazy when you have multiple axis milling and all of the planes are being offset or rotated to correct for this in real time.

  7. Really like the bench. Did you check the distance from the center of each DOG to ensure the center one is the same +/- a couple Thousands of an inch (center to contact edge)? if not the dog hole placements could be better then you think. I am guessing that you assumed that each plastic dog has the same measurements, in which case it would be difficult to guarantee any specific accuracy since the contact edge of the dog appears to be beyond the actual edge of the dog hole…. Just Sayin…. you could be better then you think.
