Making dovetails in sketchup - 6 replies

Hi all. I am sure there are a few people here who use sketchup to model their wood working projects. I created a plugin that allows you to select a set of faces on two boards and it will create dovetails in the objects. There are a few limitations right now, like the two boards have to each be unique groups. But it can do both regular dovetails ...

Picked up a new in box Dewault 735X today - 2 replies

For $450. It even came with the extra blades and wings. I am so excited to get this thing going. I can see why it would perform a lot better than the other bench top systems. One, it is a beast.

Powermatic 60B on craigslist - 0 replies

G1018 that needs some fixing up - 3 replies

Found a G1018 on craigslist. Needs a new motor and cutter head. Guy is asking $400, which I wouldn’t pay. He also has a new in box 735X package. I was thinking of offering him $700 for the pair. I would then get a 2 or 3hp motor and then either get a standard cutter head for 75 or a shelix for $400. That would put me at about $850 to have ...
