Lots of good advice and tips. Thanks guys.
Several years ago, we ripped out all the Corian from my brother's
house. I saved it.... at least 50 sq ft of it. Multiple plates,
rather than inserts, sounds like an easy option.
Two 16" Uni-T fences with UHMW fence face will be ordered soon. Wish
they'd offer 24" lengths.
A "remote" switch was concerned, also. I didn't know what a momentary
foot switch is, but I see Woodcraft has one for $20.... looks
perfect! I like the push-button type action, rather than a toggle
On another note, my nephew and I recently installed new decking
(double layered) and re-shingled half the shop roof.... about 900 sq
ft (inclusive of a 30' X 12' backside overhang). Little by little,
it's getting completed. *Decking material - free, salvaged from
construction work sites, along with lots of framing stock. Shingles
(architectural) - $7 a bundle from Lowes' "damaged" department.
