Are any of you familiar with the Ten Million Dollar Stick from FastCap? I have not ever used it (yet) on the Table Saw but I do use it often when I have small off cut pieces on the Miter Saw. I is pretty cool for under twenty dollars.

Used it today on my cutting sled. With the use of the stick, I did not need to hold down the stock with double-faced tape.

I do not need to polish it, designer wants the matte look, apparently that's totally the thing now over here.

Alex, what grit paper will you use for the matte finish?

I don't know, don't ask me such difficult questions!  [smile]

It is the first time I'm working with this stuff. I didn"t even know you can sand it.

I asked my designer to ask his supplier and the answer he got back was that you can use any good construction glue to glue corian on other materials, he specifically mentioned the 4tecx glue I have. But you have to use the 2 part glue Tom mentioned if you want to glue 2 plates of corian together, and then you can sand it to make the connection seamless. Looks like I'll have to do both.

Note: The exact magnet positions should be determined based on your particular saw. Use 3/4" to 1" dia. magnets; I needed three per wedge.

I have to express my confusion over the OP's topic. It seems that there's some misunderstanding over what species of wood dominos are available in. They come in beech or sipo. That's it. If someone want a domino in another species they need to produce them themselves.

Just curious, Why would you want walnut Dominoes? I guess if a person were doing a through tenon maybe for visual appeal.

Yes for through tenons.

I’ve heated stuff up to 95*f with the can sitting in a bucket in the slop sink running hot water and stirring continuously while checking with an infrared meter.

I used to sand drywall and paint with my ET 125. More likely it was the paint that ruined the bearings. The company said it would cost about 75% of the cost of a new sander to replace the bearings  [eek]
After I complained they offered to sell a refurbished sander to me. (Years before they offered them generally)

Now I only sand paint and drywall with a Makita 5” ro sander. A new one cost less than half the cost of repairing the ET 125.
