Idea organization with Evernote - 1 reply

Jig Hardware Source - 26 replies

I am looking for a source of 1/4-20 T-bolts and jig hardware like the set found on rockler. It is a nice set, but 80 bucks is a little steep. Am I being unreasonable, or is the fact that it says “woodworking” on it means the price is double what you can find elsewhe...

Dryer duct as Dust Collector piping - 12 replies

So after tripping over and losing stuff in piles of dust from my various projects, AND finding an increasing amount of saw dust and wood chips in my house, I broke down and bought a dust collector system.
