    Sun bleached is not deterioration, just sun bleached. The sun changes the color of a lot of woods. My sapele back steps are about a year old. Turning silver. Nice sapele color when wet, but getting...

    I have a 20+ year old Darex drill sharpener. Does a nice job. Small bits get tossed sometimes, but repeat jobs using a lot get sharpened in bulk. And when you are working into the night and need a...

    No idea. But move shifter away and then back? Sensor in half position? I get that on one machine and just jog the magazine in any direction. Not an Integrex though.

    Variable Feed Control button IS for controlling chatter. You override the feed/speeds and often can make chatter go completely away. Or maybe the sound tells you a more aggressive cut can be tried....
