I want what this guy is smoking. - 3 replies

This guy just can’t be serious. $450 for a Homecraft table saw. The cord to the motor looks like a coiled telephone line. No fence, no rails, home made blade insert…wonder what else he has to sell.

Cool combination chop/table saw - 4 replies

Saw this on a FB page of a Polish or Russian guy making a table top. I know combination machines are compromises but this looks pretty handy for small jobsite work. Seems these are widely available in Europe but not here and I’ve never even considered the concept of it. Makita, Bosch, DeWalt and a bunch of other companies manufacture the...

Is the Husky Silent Flow a rebadged California Air? - 20 replies

I’ve looked at the weight, decibels, motor specs, photos from every angle and it seems these two units are identical. Except the Husky is $169 and the California Air is $259. Does anyone have experience with the Husky to know where maybe some quality was shaved of the CA product?

Delta dust collector filter options - 5 replies

Hello, I picked up a Delta 1 hp 50-720 dust collector at a yard sale on Sunday. It wasn’t completely assembled and was wobbly, two casters were gone but the rest of it was there. I asked how much and if it ran. The guy plugged it in and I asked how much – he said $30 and I said ‘I’ll come back with my truck.’ I had ...

Question about tree burl - 8 replies

Hi, Was snowshoeing in the woods behind my place which is filled mostly with ash, walnut, cherry, maple and lots of pricker bushes. Happened upon this tree (I remembered the bark was cherry but looking at the pic now I can’t tell for sure) that was about 10 inches in diameter. This burl was up about 10 ft as I was able to reach it with ...

Anyone have experience with Bostich tools from Wallymart? - 16 replies

Was in there the other day dreaming about a 55 inch TV and went down the tools aisle. I noticed corded and cordless drills with the Bostich name on them.. Price points were decent, better for the corded tools than I would expect but figured since Bostich is owned by Stanley, who also owns Black & Decker, that they were just yellow Black &...

DeWalt DW745 tablesaw at Home Depot - $229! - 10 replies

Had to pick up a furnace filter yesterday and I like to walk through the tool section looking for little yellow stickers that say “discount.” They had the Dewalt DW745 saw marked down from the $299 sale price to $229!! Do I need a jobsite saw at the moment? No, but the little Craftsman I do have has a terrible fence and I was never r...

Circular saw cut starts wide of the mark - 26 replies

Hey folks, yesterday I was building a carcass for a window seat out of a sheet of birch ply. I clamped a straightedge onto the sheet and ripped it down to widths I needed. I noticed that on my first cut the blade actually started wide of my line despite the sole plate being tight to the straightedge, and then it settled into place. I swapped out...

Rockwell Motorized Miter Box 34-010 manual wanted - 11 replies

As the title says….. I picked up a clean one for ten bucks at a yardsale Sunday (didn’t need it, but ten dollars?). I found an exploded parts diagram at the vintage machinery reprints section, but would like a manual so I can set up the sacrificial table properly. I was going to pull the motor to check the bearings but the case wo...

Was it a wood planer or ice shaver? - 6 replies

Well, with NO pic for you to look at, I’ll just throw this out there - I was at a thrift shop looking at some planes (Shelton and Wards, one broken handle, one incomplete) and I saw an interesting little thing. It had a blade like a hand plane, had a cast body with thumb wheel for adjusting depth of cut, no markings at all, the blade wa...

Anyone use untinted base paint as a substitute for spar varnish? - 28 replies

Like the question says – I have to sand and clear coat a wood door that faces southwest and has no overhang protection, so the sun, rain and snow beat it pretty badly. Customer is disappointed that the last guy’s job didn’t even last 2 years, and I believe he used a Cetol product. I just read that using an untinted base paint w...
