nicad batteries - 10 replies

I want to rebuild a 12v battery for my cordless drill. Has anyone done this and if so, what source do you recommend for the sub-c’s with tabs? Lotsa suppliers out there on the www, but it’s hard to guess who has the best battery. Thanks.

A & H Turf - 4 replies

Anyone here dealt with A&H Turf out in Billings, MT? They appear to have incredible prices on Blum, so incredible in fact that this bee is suspicious. but $ 18.00 vs 39.00 for 563 tandem blumotion slides is tough to ignore. Thanks.

Oh, the agony - 9 replies

I have a jet jcs10 table saw which is a good saw. I have actually adjusted it to less than .002 tolerances after an extended wrestling match. So why would I think of a new saw? The splitter/ blade guard assembly is a nightmare to remove and replace, and there is no way to get a riving knife to work on the saw. (I have become convinced that...

door panels - 5 replies

I have a door which will require a panel 12 13/16 in width. I also have two pieces for the panel which are 5 7/8” after milling X2 = 11 3/4” which leaves just a bit over an inch I need to make up. Given that I can successfully match the face to my satisfaction, is there any reason not to use a 1+ inch strip down the middle? Tha...

minimum panel thickness - 16 replies

I’m making flat panel cabinet doors for kitchen cabinets, and wonder if I can get my solid red oak panels down to 1/4 inch thick without asking for trouble in terms of warping/cupping. If I do 3/8 or 1/2 inch, I’ll end up with a gap showing on the back if I machine a 1/4 in tounge, which I’m not sure how I’d like. ...

Resawing technique - 8 replies

When resawing on the bandsaw, which face is against the fence: the thinner piece being cut off, or the larger piece? I have seen it both ways, and wonder which is best. Thanks.

I have stumbled onto Holbren, and am amazed at their prices for 6” jointer knives. Has anyone here had dealings with them? If so, are you satisfied with them and their quality? Terry

Jointer table not flat - 6 replies

I have my joiinter infeed table completely off and I laid it down on the outfeed table and found some rocking. I can get a .022 feeler gauge under one of the corners. With corner shims, I can perhaps cut the differential to half that. This is a no-name machine, suggesting what I’m not sure, but there is not one whit of identification an...

stile and rail fit - 5 replies

I copied this image from another post here. My question has to do with the fit of the tenon in the mortise. There is a bit of a gap between the end of the tenon and the bottom of the mortise. Is this normal? Or is there a bit of bad machining in my Freud bit set. There is a provision for lengthening the tenon and mortise which I could use to len...

Cabinet door thickness - 5 replies

I am considering making the doors for my kitchen cabinets 5/8 in thick as opposed to 3/4. The stock is well-seasoned red oak. Am I asking for trouble? Thanks.

Dovetails too tight - 4 replies

I have looked at the posts regarding joints that are too tight, and one of the remedies is to lower the bit.I did that, with no improvement. I then realized that I am using my PC 4210, and that I am cutting pins and tails in one pass. That suggests to me that raising or lowering the bit will affect both pieces equally, and that there will be ...
