General International 12 1/2 Thickness Planer for Sale or Swap - 0 replies

I have a GI 12 1/2 Thickness Planer that I no longer need. It has 26 cutter heads but is not considered “helical” as the blades are in 6 rows of 5 or 6 cutters.I am on Cape Cod. If anyone is interested, I’d like $125 for it. I bought it in 2012 and have the original manual with it. It has not had hard use but needs some tin...

Poly over lacquer question - 8 replies

I made 3 serving trays and put a brush on Watco Lacquer on them. The lacquer is streaky and nasty along the edges with some buildup that I couldn’t really get clear. Right now they are 24 hrs after the 3rd light coat and still look streaky with bad corners and edges. I started googling poly over lacquer and the answers vary from absolut...

Looking for an alternative to fence for an old Craftsman 9 inch table saw - 12 replies

I recently gave a friend a Craftsman 9-inch Motorized Table Saw. It was free to me and my friend needed a small table saw. The model number is 113.24140 and it looks like it is a 1974 model from the owner’s manual. Here is a picture of it. As you can see, it has a small wonky rail and fence on a rather large outfield table for it...

Bessey Uniklamp not holding...I cleaned and waxed the bar - 23 replies

My Bessey Uniklamps were pretty sad, all covered with glue along the bars from lots of use. They are my “go-to” clamps. So I googled cleaning them and watched a bunch of videos and read a lot of articles. Long story short, I cleaned them with mineral spirits, a soft brass brush, steel wool. Then I put some wax on them. Now they ...

Making a Doll House - 8 replies

This is so out of my realm that I’m appealing to my friends at LJ for some guidance. My landscaper and friend has asked me to help him (that should read – make it while he helps me) make a doll house for his daughter. She is designing it now and he is “sending the plans to Santa”. I will have the expert help of my fr...

Question on Worksharp - are we wasting sandpaper? - 16 replies

I have a Worksharp 3000. I was looking at the different grits of sandpaper used on the machine and I notice that we only use the center “ring” of the paper when sharpening. Has anyone come up with a way to use more of the paper and waste less (or am I missing something obvious!!!). I seem to have this nice area in the middle that ...

Drum Sanders - Jet vs Grizzly - 13 replies

I am thinking about replacing my Jet Performax 10-20. It died today. I bought it off Craig’s List about a year ago and it has been nothing but trouble since day one. Today, it just stopped working. It is probably the motor but given the fact that the paper is nearly impossible to get really tight (even with my home-made tool) and it wa...

Today, I received a gift from Mike, AKA Littlecope. It is a beautiful box with inserts.

Another thing… some of the wood was a gift to Mike from David AKA Patron. So, I have 2 of my LJ friends i...

Problem with Performax 10-20 Sander - paper keeps ripping - 16 replies

I have a Performax 10-20 drum sander and I am having a problem with the sandpaper. I know the space to get to the sandpaper clamps is tight… even for my small hands. However I’m not sure that is the problem. I ripped 2 new pieces of sandpaper roll today while running some boards through the sander. I can’t tell if the paper...
