The excitement of a new (to me) machine! - 21 replies

Hot off the rented trailer. A 1988 Bridgewood CT-200. I just picked it up for $500. I figured it’s not the deal of the century, but I’ve been looking for an 8 inch jointer for months now, and this one popped up. My budget allows for a shelix, and I think I’m going to need it. The motor is incredibly loud, and my under...

The tapered-legs-on-a-jointer method actually works (lol) - 21 replies

Hi all. I had seen a few videos of people showing how to taper table legs and such on a joint her, but I was very skeptical that It would work for me. Because I only have an old craftsman 6-1/8” jointer that I picked up used. What I also found out is that you can use the method more than once if your jointer can’t make a deep ...

Hi everyone. I just came across a new posting for a Grizzly 1023SLX that comes with a 53” ShopFox fence for $650.(the seller needs to clean their camera) I was curious what the LJs think about this saw vs. holding off and waiting for a decent Unisaw at a decent price to pop up.

Band saw blade wobble - 26 replies

Hi all. I got a band saw from CL a while ago, and after changing the blade and tuning it up (per Alex Snodgrass’ tutorial), the blade moves side-to-side during operation. I tried increasing the tension, but that didn’t do it. I capture some slo-mo video of it. View on YouTube I cleaned off the rubber as best I could. It’...

Craftsman jointer restoration question - 18 replies

Hi all. Lately I’ve been diving deeper into the world of woodwoorking, and my newest acquisition is an old Craftsman 6” jointer model 113.206931. The beds are not co-planar at the moment, but I found the manual online, and there are four convenient bolts for adjusting it. But the infeed bed itself isn’t flat. I can easily f...
