I have powerfeeders for my shaper and router table. They help a lot with chatter marks. Also, use 1/2" shank bits in your router, when ever possible.

Don't know. Maybe mummified would have been a better word. The fur was all gone and the carcass wasn't rotted and was hard. This was in the summer, too.

Sorry, I thought my profile showed my location. I'm in Central NY. The general practice and what the building inspectors want to see in a crawl space is vapor barrier facing the floor.

Vapor barrier

I have a bath room over a crawl space.I'm putting in a tile shower with a water proof membrane. Should I still use kraft faced under the shower or will that create a double vapor barrier?
