Can I use a 36 inch drawer on a 28 inch full extension slide? - 3 replies

Hi, I have a linen closet that I’m putting some shelves in the bottom portion. The closet is 40 inches deep and about 20 inches wide. The doorway is only 17 inches wide, so I’d like to get as much use of the space as I can. Other than the back of the drawer not extending out the last foot any reason not to extend past the back of ...

Anyone have a chain wheel for a Jet 12hh? - Solved. - 23 replies

HI there, My planer has been down for 4 months waiting on the part. It is a white plastic sprocket that takes up the slack when running the planer. Places have it to order, but when I call they have to order it from Jet and they don’t have it. Just hoping someone might have a spare.

Cost of cutting up a BIG downed tree? - 21 replies

Hi, My wife is a wood turner, so we are always on the lookout for free wood. We can handle cutting up trees that are about 2 feet wide. A small wild lot was cleared near us last month, for a new house and they pushed down a walnut and boxed elder. We cut up what we could and made blanks for her later use. Anyway a friend of hers told her a...

Scarfing trim joint - 5 replies

Hi, I have several pieces of trim to put up in a 14’ x 14’ foot dining room and all I have is rough 8’ red oak. I did a smaller room and tried butt joints (pretty bad) and a scarf joint (meh). I was adding the second piece to an existing piece. I think I’m going to try scarfing the pieces together before installing, t...

Jointing long pieces question - 15 replies

I have a jet 12 inch jointer/planer (jjp-12hh) the tables are 55 inches long. I’m making door trim from rough cut red oak and I find that some pieces are slightly concave, so when edge planing I have some contact at the end then nothing for 5 or so feet then some contact at the other end. I feel like a chump passing the full length of the ...

Door trim question - 8 replies

Hey, I’m trying to trim out a bathroom door at the end of a hall. When I started testing pieces it became obvious that someone had done some work to hide an error. The door is almost 5/8 taller on one side than the other. That seems to have been done to compensate for the door frame being out maybe an inch. If I try to have a consist...

Anyone else watching Ellen's Design Challenge? - 2 replies

Some really nice stuff this season. Mostly woodworking, one lady seems to be a pretty good at welding her designs. They had an impressive kickback a couple episodes back, left a dent in another table saw right beside one of the carpenters!

I watched a video of the flag being removed, there were people chanting and screaming as one would expect, but what came next really shocked me! They rolled it up like it deserved some respect, just shocking! It sho...

Went up to Ont. for a wedding and while there my brother-in-law gave me these 2 planes. One is a Record no 4 with a corrugated sole and a Winchester block plane.

Multiple 4 inch lines to second stage dust collector - 2 replies

I have a Delta 50-760 hooked up to a 50 gallon barrel as a second stage filter/collection unit and it works pretty well, emptied the bag once in 2 1/2 years, the barrel around 8 times. My wife can fill the barrel in about 3 months from her lathe. We have had this set-up for a while, but really only one of us can use it at a time. When I test ...

SawStop Contractor saw assembly is a joy! - 12 replies

You get what you pay for! I’m not not finished yet, but the stand, mobile base, motor, & saw itself went together very well. The hardware packs have numbers and colours on both sides that correspond with the large assembly poster. I Really can’t imagine it being any easier to assemble. NO missing parts, NO problems with anythi...
