Dust Collection setup in a very small shop - 3 replies

I have a very small shop in a 10’ x 12’ shed. Of course everything is on wheels. A number of years ago I bought a Delta 50-720 1 HP Single Stage Dust Collector for my Saw Stop table saw and a jet 6’ jointer. Recently I noticed that the suction on the Delta seemed decreased. There was a clog in the section of hose connected ...

Keeping the Left and Right - 19 replies

Does anyone have trouble keeping straight project pieces for those projects that have left and right sides? I just discovered I unintentionally made two 60” long left side panels for the same armoire. This happened because I just wasn’t paying attention as I should have been. [Time to hit my head against the nearest wall]. So now...

3 or 1.75 HP Saw Stop - 26 replies

Saw Stop has just announced a 1.75 HP version of their new “professional saw”. It also comes with 30” rails. I assume the 1.75 HP is equivalent to the same motor furnished on their contractor model. I am interested in the 30” rail version because it would fit into my small shop better and there is a savings between the ...

Finishing Stained Red Oak - 6 replies

I am a real neophyte when it comes to finishing a stained project. I have built some small night stands [2] for our bedroom using red oak veneered plywood for the case and red oak regular wood for its doors. I cant seem to get the scratches off the doors because I cant see them [senior vision maybe?] at the sanding stage. I’ve used the ...

Unused Finish, The Arm-R-Seal Story - 4 replies

Sorry if this topic has been covered before. Almost a year ago I purchased some Arm-R-Seal top coating and used it on a few jewelery boxes. I only used up about half the can. When I got back to it a few months later a thick “plastic” like layer formed over the top. I broke through it and got to the usable part of it underneath. ...

Jointer Problem - 8 replies

I have a 6” Jet jointer. I have been away for a few months and now it seems to have developed a problem. If I run a perfectly parallel board [red oak from Lowes] over it the jointer’s knives start cutting away for about half of the board and then any further cutting stops for the rest of the length. These are light cuts, about 1/3...

Woodworking Tips of the Week - 3 replies

Anyone know what happened to the Woodsmith woodworking tip of the week sent by email? I have not seen one for a couple of months or more. Are there others out there besides Fine Woodworking?

I Need A Cart for my Bench Top Planer - 6 replies

I am looking for an inexpensive way to build a cart for my Delta bench top planer. Ideally, it should be able to roll under my work bench which has around a 34” height clearance and the casters lockable. The Delta planer is about 17” high. I recently saw a cart model with a flip top in a recent Wood Mag “2008 Best Ever Works...

Saw Stop Contractor Table Saw - 16 replies

Does anyone have any experience with this contractor saw? So far dealers have advised getting the upgrade fence. I am also thinking of getting the cast iron wings. My shop [and my budget] is a little too small for the cabinet model. One thing that concerns me is there is no provision for “in the field” miter slot alignment adjust...

Band Saw Blade Marks - 9 replies

Just bought a new Steel City 14” granite top band saw. The 1/4” blade that came with it leaves marks, grooves. I’ve used a cabinet scraper followed by a belt sander to get them out. But I wonder would if a new 3rd party band saw blade would make a big difference or is this just part of the process of using a band saw? Or is...
