GFCI issues! by Im-an-ME in HomeImprovement

[–]jakkarth 1 point2 points  (0 children)

A failure rate of 5/5 in one year is far above average. Given that you bought two of them a year apart, it's unlikely they were in the same batch either. This would strongly indicate an issue with your installation of the outlet or the circuits you've connected it to. Highly unlikely to be manufacturing defect.

This is my pretty basic pine coffee table. It needs spicing up. I want to stain the top quite dark - maybe a walnut stain - and paint the bottom white ala “farmhouse” style. I’m worried about the pine not taking the stain quite as beautifully as I’m envisioning - any tips for a newbie? by sophlippinggreat in DIY

Lichtenberg Burning Machine Kickstarter by [deleted] in woodworking

[–]jakkarth 5 points6 points  (0 children)

No overt self promotion or direct linking to items for sale - including crowdfunding and auction websites. If someone in the comments section likes a project and asks if you have an online shop, that's one thing. But submitting direct links to your Etsy shop is highly frowned upon and may result in a ban.

Closed cell spray foam for old house? by austincrawford in HomeImprovement

[–]jakkarth 3 points4 points  (0 children)

You get double the R value plus air sealing which is extra important in older homes. You'll eventually get your money back. Insulation is a pretty good investment.

Tiny holes by buffythelibrarian in Scrollsaw

[–]jakkarth 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Sounds like you're looking for plain end instead of pin end. Here's some info.

Is the Delta 10” Table Saw (Model: 36-725) good for the money? I’ve been given $1700 by my father as an investment and I want to buy a new table saw and a jointer. Read my comment below for more details! Thanks for your input. by willrussell802 in woodworking

[–]jakkarth 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I've had my R4512 for about 6 years and haven't ever had any trouble with the fence. It moves easily when unlocked, stays put when locked, and remains parallel to the blade. Some people don't like the "clamps in the back too" part but I much prefer it to the "clamps only in the front" design. Less wobble on the far end when pushing large stock through.

Do what you're comfortable with :)

I’m trying to stay away from rigid.

Ridgid offers a lifetime warranty on their tools, and the quality between the Ridgid and the Delta is pretty much the same. Look at quality, not at the brand name.

bright orange doesn’t fit my shop haha.

Can't argue with that one. :)
