Chest lids, cleats and breadboard ends - 5 replies

I have been asked to build a toy chest. Will be a frame and panel design using birch with 1/4” ply panels and a solid lid. Here is where I begin to question some design details. When I look at different designs, some incorporate two or more cleats secured to the underside of the lid, but many do not. I will be laminating multiple ~6”...

shop fox bandsaw? - 10 replies

My quest for a bandsaw for my shop continues. I thought I had it whittled down to the Rikon 10-326 or the Laguna 1412 (would love to get the 14 bx in 220v, but an additional $500 is pushing it) Was browsing amazon the other day and came across a 19” shop fox bandsaw with a 3 hp 220 v motor. looks very similar to King industrial, Magnum,...

Laguna, rikon or Laguna?? - 11 replies

Okay, I think I have narrowed it down. I have a max budget of 1600 CAD for a new bandsaw. I am thinking between the Laguna 14twelve or the 14” rikon model that is so popular. Both can convert to 220, a must in my rating matrix. Laguna has ceramic guides, the rikon has slick, easily adjustable bearing guides. Rikon has a 5 year warranty,...

which bandsaw? - 5 replies

A bandsaw is currently not among my tool inventory, something I aim to rectify in the new year. The main use of the machine will be in re-sawing rough stock for say, drawer sides, etc. I definitely want something with a 12” resaw capacity without the additional purchase of a riser kit and 220 Volt capability. I am thinking I want a blade...

finishing poplar - 14 replies

My wife wanted an entry way bench for folks to sit and take off their shoes. I came up with this over the weekend: I had a piece of yellow cedar kicking around a few years and used that for the top with some walnut Dutchmen: I originally thought my wife would want the frame painted, but now she is thinking stained. I hear all kinds of ca...

tablesaw swithc replacement - 7 replies

Ripping face frame stock last night and the tablesaw wouldn’t shut off. Had to pull the plug on it. Took the switch apart, blew it out and put it back together. Saw operated normally for 3 or 4 cycles and then would not shut off again. Saw is a Delta contractor 36-650, 115 v, 1 1/2 hp, toggle switch. Should I hunt down a OEM Delta ...

Canadians - which cabinet saw? - 6 replies

I am still a few months off from having my shop move in ready, and I perhaps foolishly implicated myself in a new project (got a lift of hardi-plank for too good a price to pass up, will be residing my home in the spring) all said however, I do want to start seriously researching a new cabinet saw. I currently own a Delta contractor saw (36-6...

finally, my turn to score! - 3 replies

It doesn’t happen often around where I live that one comes across a decent deal on used equipment of toys. There just isn’t the same numbers as in larger centers where people are constantly buying and flogging. However, every now and then, one can get lucky. It happened for me yesterday. I timed it just right to come across an ...

Polished concrete will be the finished floor material (with a bit of a “gripy” application) What is your preferred method for gettin...

Which bosch router kit? - 19 replies

I have done a bunch of work on a friends house and he has generously offered to buy me a new router as a thank you. I need to replace the Skil classic plunge router I have had since i was 14. I am a major Bosch fan and the decision comes down between the long standing and venerable 1617 or the new MCR23. The fixed base will find its home in...
