Facebook #1: Trying really hard to get business off the ground - Need LIKES

04-28-2011 08:23 PM by Panga Design | 27 comments »

My name is Al and have recently set about making a living (trying) from my hobby in woodworking. Facebook is an integral part of marketing the products and I am currently striving to reach 100 LIKES on my page. I have two questions: 1. Is there anyone else out there who uses FB for marketing? and if so how is it going? 2. Would anyone who has read this be willing to like my page here: Thanks all in advance and please fe...

Does it hurt to go to a urologist?

07-11-2007 01:36 AM by jockmike2 | 24 comments »

I’ve got to go to a urologist tomorrow and I’m wondering who else has gone and what do they do? Yes I have noctoria and I have trouble stopping once I do get going. Listen, my dad died with prostate cancer, two uncles on my mothers side also, plus my grandad on my mothers side and my grandad on my Dads side. It just don’t look good. You know what I mean? Talk about needing some prayers, I’m begging you folks to hook up with your higher power, and ask for some help for...

Can any of you brilliant, engineering types help a dumb, little old lady with TS V-belt questions?

03-20-2013 06:24 PM by lightweightladylefty | 22 comments »

I recently replaced the 5-HP motor on my Grizzly right-tilt table saw. (To be honest, my husband did because this weakling couldn’t lift 65 pounds.) I figured it was a good idea to replace the belts, too, so I ordered a set from Grizzly along with the motor. I’ve now gotten 3 sets of belts from Grizzly and none of them match my old, original belts. My original belts were FM-26. The first belts sent were 3V-250 which were the same configuration but too short. When I called b...

I need help, I know in more ways than one

12-12-2007 07:05 PM by jockmike2 | 19 comments »

My 16 in variable speed wood lathe model number( 46-745, 46-746, and 46-765x ) has a broken inverter Part # 1 I’ve called the Delta Manufacturing Plant in Tenn. and they said they discontinued production of all parts on this model a couple years ago. I have bought a new (supposed) one from a company in Lansing but it was no good. When I had an electrician hook it up and it did’nt work he said, must be the motor is bad. So I took the motor to Lansing Electric, a reputable organizat...

I had my first kickback episode and do not know what I did wrong… I was ripping a small piece of of red oak to a width of 3”. The piece I was ripping was a scrap from a previous project and was not rectangular in shape. Here is a picture of the piece after I cut the excess off: In the picture you can see the push stick that I was using and the setup of the saw. Here is another picture at a lower angle: Here is what happened: I pushed the piece forward and the wast...

What can I say, except thank you and thank you again. You have created an extraordinary website and luckily I’ve been around long enough to see it and you grow. You have always treated me with the utmost respect and honesty, when I have bothered you with my comp;uter promblems, which has been, lets say quite a few times, and I do appreciate all the help you have given or at least tried to give me. Which most of the time turned out to be something wrong on this end. I know you have worke...

Does anyone know anything about the art of coopering?

06-21-2008 11:29 PM by jockmike2 | 17 comments »

I am in the process making a couple large teardrop shaped supports for a table, but know absolutely nothing about coopering and the two supports are rather large. Is there an expert among the Lumberjocks that could give me some pointers or ideas where to hunt for information that would be of help to a begginer. That’s the reason I’m asking here rather than a blind search on line. I could search for days and get no where. I have a basic understanding of what coopering is and unders...

Are these good prices???

01-08-2010 05:50 PM by Kristoffer | 16 comments »

Well, between being new to woodworking and being self-taught, I wouldn’t know a good or bad lumber price if my life depended on it. So far, I’ve only worked with the basics like pine, MDF, poplar and oak. There is a guy in my area selling the following planks at the prices listed. Are prices good, average or bad? Maple – $60.00 – 2-1/8” x 8-1/2” x 76” Honduras Mahogany – $60.00 – 2” x 9-3/4” x 75” Walnut – ...

03-03-2009 03:39 AM by ccpenco | 14 comments »

I’ve thought carefully and done a heck of a lot of research on marketing, and brand building, and all that business related stuff. I’ve raised enough money to get started. I’ve built up an inventory.

An additional source of money, and a bit of practice in the world of business.i still need to do some things though. #1. I NEED A NAME : iR...
