placing screws (or threaded inserts) into Rockler pro phenolic router table - 7 replies

Hope this is the correct forum for this question. Trying to attach Dust Right “Dust Bucket” (from Rockler) to bottom of Rockler Pro Phenolic router table (Rockler says it’s “solid phenolic”). Instructions say to use #10 or #12 screws, but I broke 1 of each size, and cracked the phenolic (not too deeply, I hope), usi...

Bosch T4B mobile miter stand -- should saw be centered? - 0 replies

I just put together a Bosch T4B mobile miter stand (after trying two of HF’s “highly rated” models. Yeah, get what you pay for …). The stand has a red stop on the rail assembly, and one of the brackets that holds the saw is supposed to be up against this stop (I’m fairly certain that the purpose of the stop is to pr...

Cutech planer dust collection - 1 reply

Just got a Cutech thickness planer, model 40200H-CT 13” Spiral Cutterhead Planer. The planer works great, but the dust collection is terrible. I’m using a Delta 1 hp dust collection system (model 50-723, 750 cfm) which seems fine with my SawStop cabinet saw and my Cutech benchtop jointer. The 4” hose from my dust collector is a...

Unused "age-unknown" Biesemeyer fence and rail system - 1 reply

I was cleaning out my Dad’s garage (he’s 95) and found a brand new Biesemeyer fence in its original box—fence, rails, hardware, manual. I have no idea how old it is. One of the rails has a scale on it that ends at 43”; the length of this rail is 70”. I’ve attached some photos. It’ll be a pain to ship (quite heavy) so I’d like to sell...

Fair price for new Biesemeyer fence and rails -- complete - 8 replies

How to glue up multi-piece cutting board quickly - 9 replies

This has probably been answered previously; my apologies for asking again. I recently made a “basket weave” cutting board that looked great when I dry fit it. I was worried about gluing up the whole thing at one time (wasn’t sure I’d be able to do it quickly enough), so I did it by gluing a few pieces together, then glued...

uh oh ... Will this cutting board crack? - 14 replies

I made a “more or less 3d” edge grain cutting board out of maple, walnut, and padauk, and (long story) it ended up way too thin after planing and sanding. So, I decided to use the same woods, make another board, glue the two together, and then make a padauk frame the thickness of the new, two-boards-glued-together board. I am pretty ...

Cutting board “disaster” – how do I prevent it from happening again? - 14 replies

(Not sure if this should be posted on “Woodworking Skill Share” forum – this is more like lack of skill. Please let me know if it should be posted in a different place). Trying to make a cutting board with an inlay (first attempt); watched several YouTube videos showing how to do this. Glued up a maple and cherry board, routed a ¼” groove in the...

Need help repairing cutting board - 9 replies

Wasn’t sure where to post this; if it’s in the wrong place please let me know. Made a couple of mistakes on my first end-grain cutting board; hoping that someone can bail me out. First, moved the edge-grain board while cutting end-grain strips after the first glue-up and took a big chunk out of one of the strips (first photo). Since ...
