Wood movement, glue-ups, and pocket screws - 7 replies

I have a quick question. I am aware of the issues that accompany table top glue ups and wood movement. I don’t own a domino or biscuit joiner. So I am wondering if I can use (sparingly) some pocket screws to assist with alignment during glue up of a panel for a table top. I wouldn’t use this method to attach the top to the table ...

A very humble and random question - 23 replies

Question regarding first generation jointer - 1 reply

Used Grizzly G1182 - 1987 - 5 replies

Hello, I am looking to buy my first jointer. I’m wired for 120v and do not have the space for and 8” jointer. I have been looking at a Grizzly 60813 – but shipped is about $700. Not sure I want to drop that much for my first (and it is out of stock). I’m going to be looking at a G1182, which I believe is a 1987...
