Delta 14 in. (I think) band saw - 4 replies

Hey Gents… There’s a Delta band saw up for auction about 10 minutes from me. In the link below, it looks like a 14 inch. Open cabinet, nothing fancy. I’m thinking of heading to the auction and bidding on the BS. If it’s in good condition, can one of you LJs give me a give or take $$ amount I should stop at? T...

Stanley No. 7 - 29 replies

Hi all. I found a Stanley No. 7 on Craigslist and the guy is asking $50.00 for it. I’m heading out soon to take a look at it. I know nothing about the older/vintage planes. Is $50 for this plane in the ball park if it’s in decent/useable condition? Thanks !!

Red Neck Splitter for my Unisaw - 10 replies

Ok, not a riving knife, I know that. But it will get me by until I decide on a more permanent fix/solution. btw…. I can see why, or better how, BORK and others get +150.00 for their riving knives. I cut the splitter from a length of 2 in. x 1/8 in. mild steel I had. Had to grind/sand/file/thin it down to get it to work. Little sucker...

BORK for a Unisaw - 3 replies

Been reading the reviews here on LJs about the BORK riving knife, and came out with a question… From looking at the various photos, it looks like the bracket blocks access to the arbor for blade changing. How do you BORK owners change blades? My early/mid ‘90s Unisaw already has a bracket that looks like could set a splitter i...

Need Unisaw arbor washer - I think.... - 12 replies

The current washer that came with my used 34-459 rt. tilt Uni is about 3 1/2 inches in diameter, about 1 inch bigger than the flange on the arbor that the blade fits up against. And, there’s a “hollow” to the blade washer, so when I put a little pressure on the nut/waher to hold the blade in place, the blade actually develops ...

"Breadboard Ends" question - 1 reply

I see allot of LJ’s making table tops and putting breadboard ends on them. I made a cherry table many years ago that the “breadboar ends” slide out, so I can put a leaf at each end to extend the table. The 40 inch wide top of my cherry table expands and contracts noticeably during winter/summer months. The ends of course a...

Colored Glue - 6 replies

Several years ago I bought some wood glue, could’a been Titebond but not sure. Anyways, it was about medium to dark brown in color. While in the box stores shopping for other stuff I’ve checked, but haven’t seen any of the dark glue. Anyone know if it’s still made?

$400 Delta 14 in. Band Saw...worth it? - 5 replies This Delta BS has been on CR for a while now. I actually saw it in person while I was at the sellers house a couple of weeks ago buying a 70 ft. length of no. 8 elec. wire.

But how about a thread on CL WW tools or materials that are good deals. Heck I’m always looking and sometimes spot stuff that I don’t necessarily need, or want. But I sometimes do ...
