Hammer storage, what do you use? - 19 replies

I have a variety of hammers for everything from rough framing to beating on a rusty car to scoring bricks. In stead of having them sprayed throughout vehicles, the house and the garage, it makes more sense to keep them all in one area and grab what I need when I need it. I have zero additional floor space and would like to build something to h...

Permit needed for shed interior sqft. or foundation sqft.? - 15 replies

I’m only allowed a 14’ x 16’ shed per the HOA rules without qualifying as a detached garage needing a poured slab. That puts me right at a 224sqft. foundation (joists on concrete piers w/ 3/4” subfloor) and the maximum size per the county without needing a permit is 200sqft. I can shave the foundation dimensions down a li...

Senco/Ridgid or Quik-Drive screw guns - 1 reply

I’m looking for a screw gun primarily for subfloor & decking fastening and the Senco/Ridgid screws are available (obviously) with either a Senco driver or a Ridgid driver and the collated screws are readily available at BORG. I dealt extensively with many contractors selling and repairing Quik-Drive screw drivers with a variety of dif...

Eradicating all squirrels? - 46 replies

Not a wood project but these little soon to be extinct critters live in the woods and have waaaaay overstepped their bounds. I’m looking for an effective, not necessarily environmentally friendly, extremely inhumane solution to getting rid of squirrels around any vehicle completely and permanently. Predator solutions are the least appeal...

Dock rehab, what's my best approach? - 5 replies

The dock at the beach house is in need of a proper rehab, some have suggested ironwood decking, others just slap on some we stain. My thoughts are somewhere in between; sanding it down and applying a penetrating finish that I won’t have to touch for at least 10 years. The conditions are heavy UV, salt water splashing and not a whole lot ...

Attention all clamp campers & other off topic deal discussions - 17 replies

In an effort to keep the banter about specific deals and shipping updates on said deals off of the HOT DEALS thread, let’s discuss the non-deal particulars here. Most recently, the Bessey clamp 2-packs that aren’t. What did you get and how is it being dealt with?

Mill it or burn it? - 22 replies

I harvested this walnut in March 2017 and it’s been air drying, mostly under tarp since. I’m moving soon and debating to mill it or burn it? I’ve had good luck with air drying walnut logs this long before milling previously so knowing I’ll lose ~ 4” from each end is tolerable given they’re 72” right no...

Craigslist buyers have gone nuts...... - 12 replies

Ok it’s no secret that if you’re selling something on CL you’re going to be dealing with more than a few flakes, tire kickers & scammers but it seems to be on the rise, at least for me. I’m getting ready to move and I already knew I was a hoarder, I just didn’t realize how bad. Much of the smaller stuff I̵...

Time for a hammer till! - 19 replies

I’ve consolidated all my hammers I could find from the junk drawer in the kitchen, the garage, the shop, the shed, the boat, the van & the truck to found I need a better way to organize them. I no longer see the value in having one on standby in each and every place but rather I want to be able grab what ineed for the given task &...

New home construction cost - 38 replies

Am I crazy to think I can get a builder to build a simple colonial or ranch ~2300sqft. built on my land for $75 – $80/sqft? I’m looking at multiple lots between Spartanburg & Greenville and most of the builders crank out neighborhoods with 1/6 acre lots or 4500sqft. Mcmansions with sewing rooms and 5 bathrooms, neither of which ...

Application Error Occurred - 9 replies

Is everything working for everyone and if not, what issues are you running into? I use a Kindle most of the time and I can do almost nothing with it without getting the message. Opening a new tab from a link in my email inbox from a thread I’m subscribed to will allow me to view that thread only, any of the Lumberjocks tabs at the top wi...

Most amazon orders messed up recently? - 18 replies

I’m batting nearly 500 for orders screwed up by amazon in the past 4 weeks, the real irony is the third party vendors are proving far more reliable as of lately. Most stuff is gift related in one form or another but by no means super popular toys or the latest gadgets, the majority was for making projects and a mild bathroom makeover. I ...

Any can't miss shops, dealers, etc. in Orlando? - 5 replies

I’ll be in Orlando for a conference next week and may have just a little time to go exploring. I’m wondering if there’s anything I need to make sure I don’t miss, anything from a used machinery dealer to a hardwood dealer (yes I already checked other threads for that) that is very worth hitting up. I’ll be close t...

Inexpensive 7" DC fittings? - 12 replies

After a quick cursory search on LJ (and Google) I’ve yet to find any inexpensive vendors of 7” DC fittings and pipe except for this one: even Amazon has the same part number for the 7” elbow but at several times the price, it isn’t worth it. If nothing else materializes I will eventually make...

Revive old eBay account or start fresh? - 19 replies

I had an active eBay account until 8 or 9 years ago when I when I ran out of stuff to sell using that platform and at the same time got screwed by PayPal. I have some woodworking related stuff that is specialized enough that reaching a large audience is preferable to selling local so I can maximize my return. Should I suck it up and pay the ~$...

Turning my shop attic into a dehumidification kiln? - 11 replies

I’ve toyed with the idea of building a solar or dehumidification kiln for a some time now and while in my shop attic where I have quite a bit of wood stored and I realized I’ve already got most of the kiln right there. It only has gable and soffit vents that would be easy enough to block off, beyond that I would just put a dehumidif...

Show off your iron here!Here’s a few I’ve worked (& will be working) on: This Craft Art handsaw works but is a work in process too.

Good deal a very old Unisaw? - 12 replies

This might be a little steep or a great deal depending on the exact age? I’ve sent the seller a message about the serial number and the motor model. The two things that intrigue me the most are the four foot plinth and the goose egg motor cover. I don’t know if the fence is a jet-lock or a micro set (or which would be more desirab...
