Can anyone identify this old level? - 9 replies

I know this is a big ask, but curious if anyone can identify this level. I picked it up for a couple bucks at an auction with some other items. I just started cleaning it up. I think it will be a fun project to restore it.

Dust Collector Duct Size - 25 replies

Ladies and Gents, I know this topic has been discussed numerous times. I’ve read so many of the discussions, so I don’t want to get too deep with this one. I have (I think) a simple question. I’m planning to purchase the Grizzly G0548ZP (2HP DC with cartridge filter) and G0863 (Cyclone). My question is what size ducting t...

Shop Lighting - 27 replies

Hello gents, Working on choosing light fixtures for my new shop. I want 5000K color and around 4000 or more lumens per fixture. I also want them hard-wired and ceiling mounted. In my old shop, I used the Feit plug-in LEDs from Costco. They worked well. I’d use those again if I could hard-wire them. Curious what you guys use/have u...

Grizzly G0562ZP DC Modification Question - 5 replies

I’m in the market for a dust collector and one of the ones I’ve looked at is the G0562ZP. The problem is. It’s too long for my space. Am I crazy to consider lopping off one of the filter/bag sides? Would that hurt it’s performance? Thanks,

Dust Collector in same room as Furnace - 13 replies

Hi folks, I’m currently in the process of a new home build, which will have a basement shop. My plan was to put the dust collector on the other side of the wall from the shop. The problem is, that is the most logistically feasible location for the furnace. This sounds like a potential fire hazard. I’m admittedly uneducated about f...

SketchUp Problems - 2 replies

Hi All, I have been using SketchUp for years, without any issues. All of a sudden it crashes every time I open it. I’ve tried reinstalling it (2017). I’ve also tried uninstalling 2017 and installing 2018. Same problem. Anyone else having issues? My PC is plenty powerful enough and I’m on Windows 10. Edit: Disregard. Re...

Maintain a good connection with my phone while it’s in my pocket (this i...

Woodriver Turning Tools - 11 replies

Hey everyone, I am very new to turning. I have some home made carbide tools that I’ve been using on my mini lathe. They work well enough, but they don’t seem to be a complete solution. I’ve been wanting to get some traditional tools since the beginning, but I’m not in any hurry (I hardly have time for turning as it is ...

What to look for in a pen mandrel - 12 replies

Hey folks, I’m purchasing my first lathe on Sunday, and would like to get set up to turn some pens. I’ve seen different options for mandrels, and I’m not sure which one to get. Do I need the Rockler one with all the bells and whistles? Can I make do with a $15 one from Woodcraft? I plan on getting a jacobs chuck. Any ot...

Is this jointer worth it? - 1 reply

Found this jointer this morning: I know the bench top jointers get a bad rap, but let’s keep in mind that I currently don’t own any jointer. Is this better than none, for $75? Thanks,Joe

Taming Squeeze-out - 23 replies

Hey folks, I’m working on new doors and draw fronts for my kitchen cabinets. All the parts are finally cut, so I’m beginning to assemble them. I’ve done 4 doors so far, and the squeeze out cleanup is killing me. On the first door I was probably a little too liberal with the glue. I’ve used progressively less each...

Air Handler Motors - 16 replies

I’m planning on making a shop air filter from an old blower motor and fan. I’m curious as to the motor’s use for anything else. I have a more-or-less endless supply of the motors for the cost of shipping. Can I use them for anything else? Thanks,

What size cutters for carbide lathe tools? - 12 replies

For you folks using carbide lathe tools, which cutter sizes for square, diamond and circle do you find most useful? It would be great to have various sizes, but I’m looking to start with one of each type. Also, what is the advantage to a radius square cutter vs. a square cutter? I think I’ll use them for a combination of spindle...

Simple glue-up question - 12 replies

Hey guys, I think this will be a simple answer, but I can’t decide which route to take. I’m about to glue up a panel that will be roughly 24” wide. I am trying to decide the best method to keep this panel flat over time. Aesthetics don’t matter for what it will be used for, but it needs to stay flat. I can eith...

DIY (or not) Carbide Turning Tools - 43 replies

Hey folks, I’m on the verge of getting into turning a bit more. I’ve used a buddy’s lathe a few times, and had a great time. I’ve started looking at all the accessories that go along with turning, and obviously the most necessary are the tools themselves. The ones with carbide inserts seem like they work well for mo...
