Bandsaw recommendation - 3 replies

It wasn’t the best but back when I was going through my divorce I got rid of my rigid bandsaw and I’ve really missed it. Does anyone know how this craftsman holds up? I’m not a professional and I don’t use a bandsaw everyday, but when you need one, they’re so much better than a jigsaw!! Here’s the one I was looking at! Thanks, https://...

Wynn Cannisters - 1 reply

Hello- I have a neighbor who wants to get rid of his Wynn canister (35A2BLOL) that he bought for his Harbor Freight DC, because he feels he’s to old to bend over to see if it’s dirty and dust not want a separator (who knows why). He wanted to trade straight across for the canister that came with Jet DC-1100C, because it has fins ...

Trim router dust colkextion - 7 replies

I found myself using my rigid trim router a lot these days, especially for projects already built. It’s a real handy router but makes a huge mess. I even considered buying the festool MFK 700 to use with my festool extractor but appears they’re really for edge band only, which seems odd to me!

Drill press question - 16 replies

I’m considering getting a drill press, but a smaller bench top type that will be stored in my work bench and slide out when I need it. I use to have a big floor type model made by Rigid that I liked, but sold it during my divorce as I didn’t use it all the time and I wasn’t sure where I would end up. I found one made by WEN...

Dust collection cart - 6 replies

I’m getting ready to sell a very nice and effective shop vac cart with dust separation. Is it allowed on this site to ask fellow members what they think it’s worth? I just don’t have the room in my smaller garage!

Well I’m back from the dead (my divorce) and in my new house I’m ready to get to work on my new shop (i.e. garage).

I spent some time looking, but I’m having a hard time finding the great looking DC and cyclone setups I’ve seen before! It’s a long story, but I’ll be starting my shop over at a new location and hoping to improve on things I’ve learned on the way with my current one. I’ve seen guys, in order to minimize th...

Need some pricing help - 4 replies

Hello- I’m looking for some assistance in pricing out some of my tools as I’m going to be significantly downsizing as my wife and I are about to go through a divorce. I’m sure I’ll land on my feet, but the truth is I don’t need all of this stuff, so I’m going to be downsizing. The first tool: TS Rigid 3...

Score of the century (at least more me!) - 4 replies

I’ve been thinking about getting lumber from a real mill as my skills are improving and HD stuff pretty much stinks for the inflated price. Went into a lumber place to today to look around and found all of this for 65! It was two trips with the 4Runner and even though some was labeled as “paint grade” it was nicer than a lot ...

Festool Rotex duel mode sander 150 - 12 replies

I’m curious to hear people’s experience with this tool after reading the following. As a new woodworker, I had my Dewalt 1/4 sheet sander and for 50$ I’d say it’s well worth the price. After talking with several people it seemed like an orbital sander might be the way to got for me as they are said to remove more materi...

Calling all SSDD users - 8 replies

I finally picked up a Super Dust deputy and got it attached to 30 gallon Brute trash can. I’ve got a bit of a busy week ahead of me, but I thought I would start disassembling my old DC system and planning my attack on my new one as I won’t have much shop time this week and I want to get it right this time. I plan on putting my duct...

Super Dust Deputy - 11 replies

With a bunch of birthday gift cards, I was considering getting the Super dust deputy and making my life a little easier! My current shop has duct going both ways from my collector and I was wondering if this was an issue, or would lower the results at all.

Planer/jointer help requested - 3 replies

I acquired an old jointer and finally rebuilt it as well as got a planer. I know enough to be dangerous with them. Since I’ve volunteered to make beds for a charity group, mostly out of 2x material, I thought these two tools would help shave off some of the sanding required. I understand that both require the blade to go in the direc...

How to dado a PVC pipe - 32 replies

I have a project I’m about to start on, which calls for a 3/4” dado through a piece of 1.5” PVC pipe. The dado blade on the TS would be the easiest way, but I’m not sure how kosher that is since I’ve never done it. I feel like it may want to kick around or chip, sending pieces of plastic flying. I could brace the ...
