Makeshift Kiln From A Parked Black Car In The Hot FL Sun (bugs, etc.)? - 9 replies

Hey all, So I scored some gorgeous black walnut from another woodworker for 4/bf so I picked up a hundred bucks worth of it to finish a couple projects. Now this wood is dried and ready to use (not sure if it was kiln or air dried). However I’ve become a little creeped out lately ever since I scored a 1948 delta band saw that I am res...

Need help pricing old Powermatic Table Saw - 11 replies

Hi all, On my quest down the slippery slope I’ve come across an old Powermatic table saw that is the same vintage as my PM Jointer and PM scroll saw.  It looks like a basket case from the photos (wiring, rust, awful repaint, no fence, etc.).  The owner said it runs good but has no fence.  Pics below.  I have no idea what this thing migh...

Lesson Learned Unfortunately (Painter's Pyramids) :( - 42 replies

I’ve seen others use these ...

Just Brought Her Home - Restoration Underway - Powermatic Model 50 - 11 replies

Thanks to all that helped me with my decision process. Wanted to post some eye candy after I got her home and unloaded. I just have it sitting on my bench for now as I will be starting on the base hopefully tomorrow. The DIY base it has is complete junk so it will be trashed once I remove the motor. The surface “rust” you see in ...

Need Help Understanding Used Jointer Inspection Process - 4 replies

Hey All, Thanks to so many of you that have helped me in my search for a jointer. The main theme I kept seeing over and over was to check the used jointer for coplanar and flatness, but I had a question. So if the tables are out of coplanar why would you walk away from the deal? The reason I ask is in the below video on setting up a jointe...

Boice Crane Jointer? How does it stack up to Powermatic? - 29 replies

Hi all, In my search for a great vintage jointer I came across a Boice Crane jointer that I can get for 100 bucks. Can’t find much on them so don’t know if I should stay away or jump on it? I posted a while back that I’ve been talking with an older guy on a Powermatic 50 that has finally come down to 200 (was at 250) so I&...

How common is it to reuse wood from old furniture in new projects? - 14 replies

Hey everyone, I was googling forever but kept coming up with sites that repurposed furniture like using an old barrel for a coffee table or what not. That isn’t what I’m talking about. My question is how many of you, or how common is it, to say find an old piece of furniture that is beat up and cheap, then cut it up and process it ...
