Happy 10th Lumberjocks Anniversary to me! - 1 reply

I can’t believe I’ve been on Lumberjocks for 10 years today. Time flies when you’re having fun. Next week is my 49th wedding anniversary. Of course, the other possibility is just inertia!

Air Brush Shellac - 8 replies

This is kind of a silly question, but I use Zinser Bullseye on a lot of projects. I mostly make small things for knitters. I have always brushed it on and then buffed it with steel wool to eliminate any runs, drips, or uneven finish. But I ran across a little air brush that I’ve had for probably 40 years and never used. I think it migh...

Anyone Know About This Sprayer? - 5 replies

Rockler is offering the HomeRight Finish Max Fine Finish Sprayer for about $70. Home Depot and Amazon have it for about the same price. It’s an HVLP sprayer that seems to have it’s own little compressor with it. I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it. The reviews aren’t that sterling, but the derogatory ones s...

Bouncing Back A Page On Firefox - 23 replies

I’ve run across a new problem that just showed up today. When I sign in to Lumberjocks with Firefox on Windows 10, every time I go forward a page I see the new page and then it is like I hit the BACK button and I return to the original page. If I’m fast enough to select another page from that new page, I only return back to the sec...

Runaway Router - 17 replies

I should have known better than to keep working when I was tired. I was putting a cove detail on some coffee tables with my small router and the fence slipped, resulting in the 3 nicks in the frame. I have always considered myself an expert at fixing my mistakes, primarily through LOTS of practice because I make lots of mistakes. But this one...

RSS Feed - 15 replies

Anyone else having trouble with their RSS feed? I haven’t received any updates for over a day. I was just wondering if I need to work on something. The connection looks correct and was working perfectly until Thursday evening and then it just died.

Hartville Pure Air Dust Collection System Manual - 2 replies

I just picked up a new (to me) Hartville Pure Air Dust Collection system from a silent auction at my woodworking club. What a steal! Unfortunately, it was missing one significant piece – the manual. Now I know this isn’t too technical – plug, switch, 3 filters and a squirrel-cage fan. But I still would like to have a manual...

Good West Coast Wood Sources - 7 replies

I am traveling by car to Portland, Seattle, and Spokane from the Chicago area at the end of this month. Can someone suggest some places to pick up some good West Coast hardwood, like myrtle or big-leaf maple. I’d even be interested in some exotics (they’ve got to be cheaper than shipping them to the Midwest). Mostly looking for tu...
