Looking for some input if someone has specific experience with my next project. I have a Jet JWTS-10CW table saw that I need to put a router table between the rails of the fence. I’ve seen a multitude of videos on this subject but nothing specific to my saw so I’m reaching out to see if anyone has my saw and has done this and c...

9" Blue Record Power Lathe - 6 replies

So I picked up this gem at a yard sale this summer and have finally gotten around to setting it up. After cleaning it off and looking it over I’ve found no identifying remarks. Of course I can find nothing on the Record Power website. It’s a blue 9” mini lathe. Manual speed change. The thing is smooth as butter, I have it...

220v Wiring - 47 replies

I’m sure this topic has been discussed ad nauseum but I’m wondering what are your recommendations based on experience for 220v wiring, three or four wire? I’m remodeling the garage and I’m going to put boxes and pull wiring into the attic for the electrician and I will have two 220v outlets and I’m wondering if I...

Plaque for bell - 3 replies

So I’ve been commissioned to make a plaque to mount a brass bell on. The wood I was given to use made up to be only 7” x 9” when joined and finished. The bell is a nice brass one about 7” across and that much tall. It hangs on a pivoting bracket so it can be rung. Overall the bell on the bracket is approximately 12&...

Sliding Table Saw Fence - 11 replies

I’m curious if any of my fellow Jocks can point me in the right direction to look at options for a sliding table saw fence. Not a sliding table saw but the old style Biesemeyer type fence that used to come on the Delta Unisaw. I’m wanting to upgrade the fence on my new table saw and the venerable square tube “t” sty...

Shooting Board v. Miter Trimmer - 4 replies

Well, looking ahead I’m doing research on shooting boards and came across miter trimmers, what’s the difference? I’ve been working wood my entire life and yet I can’t figure out the difference! Call me stupid if you like. Here’s an example of a miter trimmer if you don’t know what I’m referring to....

Portamate PM-1800 Panel Mover - 2 replies

Just wondering if any of you Jocks have had any experience with this tool? Maybe this isn’t the right forum but I’m curious about this panel carrier. Looks like a simple idea that works well. I’m getting into more sheet goods work and this loo...

What is this? - 2 replies

Look at this beast! It’s hard to get an accurate guess at size but this thing looks huge! Is it home made? It looks like you could turn trees on it! I need a full sized lathe but I don’t think I could make room for this. What is it?

New Saw - 5 replies

I’m the proud owner of a “new to me” Jet JWTS-10LFR saw. It’s my CL find of the year for only $200 bucks! “Pshaww” you say? I took a piece of particle board with me, set the cursor to 9” and cut twice, I now own a piece of 1/2” particle board that is EXACTLY 9” SQUARE, not close, exactl...

Rolling wood storage - 1 reply

So yesterday I put together the rolling wood storage cart from Steve Ramsey’s website. I enjoy his “Woodworking for mere mortals” YouTube channel and saw theplan and knew it would fit my needs. I changed it around a bit and ripped some 2X4 to make shelf supports rather than plow dados and I just assembled the interior shelve...

Load and span information - 16 replies

I didn’t know where else to put this question… The wife has decided that the next project for the house is raising a sunken living room. The height the floor needs to be raised doesn’t allow for me laying dimensional lumber on the e existing floor so I’m looking for load/span information and not doing too well. A...

Planer Recommendation - 12 replies

The next shop tool on the list is a planer. I’ve pretty well settled on the Ridgid at HD for $369. I like the three blades and the spindle lock. Wade in here with your opinions. Question: Would you consider buying a used lunchbox planer?

Half Sheet Sander - 2 replies

Okay folks, I’m looking for opinions on half sheet sanders. I have many years of experience with the venerable Porter Cable 505. This is my first choice, but of course it’s out of production. I know these sanders will produce a wonderful finish. The second option as I see it is the Makita BO4900V. I’ve no experience with ...

Air compressor question - 1 reply

So I scored a killer deal today! I got a nice general air compressor for less than $100.00!!! This compressor came from an industrial application, it was used in a dry sprinkler system. The compressor is purpose built for this use. There is nothing wrong with it, the company replaced it but the problem was with their sprinkler system. ...
