Thanks for the note, Dan.

I know that you are correct and I appreciate the tip but I decided to use up some scrap spruce 1x4 I have laying around from another project.

Why a limit of dust collection points?

My local vendor told me a 1200cfm dust collector was only good to collect dust from 3 or 4 workstations. I questioned if this limit was with or without blast gates. He indicated it's with blast...

Table Saw dust control

Would a shop vac and a cyclone separator make an impression on a cabinet saw or is it going to require a whole lot more power and volume?

I don't currently have dust collection and cutting MDF is...

I like John Heisz' solution. He built a hood and also a drawer under the saw for the dust to drop into. That is his only dust collection.

How does it compare to Simple Green?

I use Simple Green to clean my cutters now and it seems to work pretty well. I'm not aware that S-G removes rust, though.

Heated jacket

I just discovered the Milwaukee heated jacket. It's part of their M12 lithium line.

How nerdy is it to lust after one of these? I can't wait to get my hands on one. :D

Thanks, Dan.

We have KD fir here. I even have quite a bit of it in my wood pile but I always thought fir split more than spruce so wasn't a good choice.

Spruce. Yes, spruce.

I went through my lumber pile and 90% of my 2x stock has some sort of split. I'm trying to make a butcher block top for a work bench out of spruce and I don't want any cracks, if I can help it.

I like my 6" floor standing jointer but it takes a lot of room and I have a hunch I could do just as well with my router table. If I were downsizing, I'd follow your lead.

So far, the only 10 inch slider I've found with low rear clearance is the Festool. It's out of my price range, though.
