Listened to your last podcast. Great stuff as always. You all mentioned that if lee valley had a black friday sale you would buy everything. Its not a black friday sale but right now I am looking at their cyber monday sale page.

I think Ishitani Furniture on Youtube uses one of this fancy super surfacer dealy whackers, just seems like a smaller version. But I always wondered what that thing was.

The joke is on Marc and Shannon, Matt was too humble to point out that putting the Sawstop technology on a band saw mill is pointless because the wood is too wet and it would have to be disabled all the time.
