Lie Nielsen #62 LA Jack + blades - 7 replies

Hello, I have a Lie Nielsen LA #62 Jack plus two additional blades (presently at 46 & 55 deg) and a toothed blade. There are some scuffs on one side because I mostly used it in a shooting board application. Just checked the site and this package would be $390. I am thinking $290 shipped CONUS. Let me know if you think the price is too high. ...

I was wondering if it is dangerous to mix it an keep it in a plastic container for a relatively short period of time; say 4 or 5 days? My wife has saved some Chobani yogurt containers for me (1 q...

Southern Yellow Pine Furniture - 11 replies

Hello, I have a nice stockpile of 2×12 – #1 SYP. I purchased it and stickered it in my garage for a couple months before building my workbench and some other shop furniture/jigs. The problem is (a good one I suppose) that I still have several really nice boards. I was wondering about using it for small furniture projects: stools, e...

Info about Craftsman 22400 band saw - 5 replies

If I can get this for $150 is that a good deal. I know it won’t be much for resawing, but I can live with that. I have space and budget restrictions. Is this a good saw for curves in material up to 2”? Thanks,Chip

What's a plane? - 8 replies

O.K., it’s not quite that bad, but close. Today is the first day I’ve ever used a hand plane. I bought a couple at a yard sale and they have been stuffed in a drawer in my shop. I would like to learn how to use them. I was hoping that someone could point me in the right direction. I’m looking for a book/DVD/website that ex...

Ridgid R4511 ((SPOKEN FOR)) - 5 replies

This has been a great saw. It has a strong motor and the granite top (which I like because it doesn’t rust). Recently, the mechanism that raises and lowers the blade froze. You will need to replace the screw mechanism and the part is available. I don’t want to mess with it and am using this as an opportunity to upgrade. If there is a...

Riving Knife or MJ Splitter - 2 replies

I have a Ridgid R4511 table saw that I really like, but removing the riving knife for dados is a massive pain. The quick release is damaged so I have to remove the whole piece and the reconnect and realign for cutting dados and rabbets.

I have a shop question. I am a noob to woodworking and began building my shop this past spring. My shop is in one of our two-car garage stalls. It is the one closest to the house and it stays a bit warmer than the other. However, I am in Michigan and it gets cold.

Table Saw Setup Ridgid R4511 - 5 replies

I have a setup question that pertains to my Rigid R4511. When I crank the blade to 90% it doesn’t quite get there. I have a Wixey Digital Gauge that says 89.8%. If I try to crank it that last bit it makes a popping sound and feels like something slips. I crank it back and it goes to 89.8%. As a newbie woodworker, is there something obviou...
