Backing Up To Previous Screens - 7 replies

Since I am not a PC wizzard by any means, I was wondering if anyone could tell me why I have to click the mouse 2 or 3 times in order to back up to the previous screen? I dont have this problem on any other sites, and never used to here either. Do others have this problem? I was wondering if the site has just slowed down causing a delay in si...

Resawing Blade For A Bandsaw - 35 replies

Ok, for all of you experts on resawing with a bandsaw, I have a quick question. I have a Powermatic 14” bandsaw. I have never had a real need for resawing before and therefore have never done this. I now have a project that I could do some resawing so I thought I would give it a try. I tried to resaw some 5” wide hard maple stock...

Good Learning Experience - 11 replies

I was thinking today that I wish I had a video camera in the shop. I planed two birch 4/4 boards to 3/4 by about 6 inches wide. I’m making a face frame for a large storage cabinet. As I was cutting the strips of birch, 1 1/2 inches wide for the frame, I noticed as the board passed the riving knife that there was so much tension in the w...

Dewalt 735 Knife Change - 10 replies

Surprisingly it was only a couple of weeks ago I told someone on here that I have planed hundreds of board feet of hardwoods on my Dewalt 735 since buying it new and it was still on the original knives. I am in the process of building a hope chest out of hard maple, and boy is it hard. Its really been taxing my equipment. Anyway, I noticed th...

Birchbark Canoe Building - 8 replies

I dont know how many of you get involved in building canoes and boats, but I caught this video on TV here of a guy in Northern Minnesota that works with the native indians building birchbark canoes.

Hit A Bullet - 29 replies

Well, I had a first today. I was planing some black walnut that I had purchased from a hardwood lumber company. I was running a 4/4 board about 10 inches wide. Suddenly the planer growled a bit and the board jerked as it was going through. I thought maybe it was just a knot. After it came out I noticed something silver in the board. After ...
