Delivery problems for Jet Tools and WMH? - 55 replies

A while back my local Wooodcraft was offering 10% off of all power tools, so I took advantage and ordered the Jet 1020 drum sander that I’d been wanting to buy for some time. When I ordered it they said it would take a week or two to come in – well that was over a month ago, and today – still no sander! My Woodcraft store is ...

How do you get to the last entry ? - 5 replies

There’s probably an easy way to do this, but I can’t for the life of me figure out how to jump to the last entry for a posted topic without using the “show next 30 replies” button. This can be a pain when there’s hundreds or thousands of replies and you want to get to the end. Is there a way to specify which reply...

How do you use your hand planes? - 7 replies

This past weekend I bought my first real plane – a Tiawanese style pull plane – which I absolutely love. After setting it up and honing the blade, I began making these beautiful wispy thin shavings from some scrap wood I had lying around.

I was installing a brand new, 1/2” 2 flute spiral bit in my router, which I had just grabbed from under my work bench where it had been sitting on a shelf with...

Today's MDF is soft? - 5 replies

I recently ran across some old templates that I made from 1/2” MDF about 15 years ago and noticed that it was much denser and harder than the stuff I am buying at HD and Lowes. Have the standards changed or has quality just lapsed over the years? I would really like to find a source for 1/4”, 1/2” and 3/4” material like...

Help - my cherry faded in too much sunlight! - 19 replies

I was hoping to get some help here – many years ago I built a small cabinet from solid cherry and finished it with Maloof’s oil/poly and oil/wax system and it turned out beautifully, gracefully aging to a nice dark color. About a year ago I had to move the piece and placed it in front of a south facing window. Within months, the to...

Saw blade "flutter" on my table saw - 11 replies

I have a recurring problem that has been haunting me for years that i hope someone could provide a solution for – saw blade flutter on my table saw. Most woodworkers have probably experienced this at one time or another while ripping – the blade will be cutting fine and then suddenly it will “flutter” in the cut and prod...
