Dust Right 4" hose equivalent? - 5 replies

I don’t need the flexibility of Rockler’s hose—it will temporarily connect my TS to DC until I get final shop layout done and ducting on the walls. Any suggestions for less expensive hose that’s compatible with Dust Right hardware?

First hand plane resto (user, not collectible). I'm hooked - 14 replies

I’ve been a corded tool user since I started ww’ing but have wanted to learn hand tools. Well, with a new shop, I’m moving towards that goal. Today I flattened my first plane iron and man, is it nice to listen to it slicing through cherry. This one is a Millers Falls #5 that I think I paid $5 for. The Jappaning is shot, b...

Half lap advice, please? - 10 replies

The missus has tasked me to design and build a pair of writing desks for our daughters, modeled after one she found online. I plan on using half laps to join the two triangle frames. The bottom rear one is no challenge; it’s 90*. The lower front and top are a bit more of a challenge. I do have an old-style Delta tenoning jig th...

Has anybody built the Sewing Station from Rockler? Or other? - 3 replies

The missus is getting into sewing, and if she proves that she really likes it and will actually do it, I told her that I’d build her a sewing station. I saw this one years ago in Wood magazine and really like it. It’ll be months before I even consider starting it, but I’d like some opinions on this one or suggestions for a be...

Designing a tall table based on a Haverty's piece - 4 replies

Hey folks, it’s been a long time. I haven’t built anything in two years and am jumping back in with my most ambitious project yet—designing and building a counter-height table, side board (server?) and matching chairs. The inspiration comes from a visit to Haverty’s with the missus two weekends ago. She wants a talle...

1970's Belsaw 9103 5hp planer/molder in Bowie, MD - 9 replies

I’ve come to the conclusion that this planer is too big to keep in my little garage shop. I’d love to keep it for possible future projects, but can’t justify it—I have a portable planer that serves me well. When I got it, it ran, but the paint was beat up, so I disassembled it and repainted it Rustoleum’s Hammered...

Intergram 3/4hp reversible shaper in Bowie, MD $100 - 2 replies

Single phase, 115V, 3/4hp shaper. It’s made by Intergram. I believe it’s an Asian copy of a Delta. It’s still crated up in the 2×4’s to make hauling about easier. I think the start capacitor is bad, as it’ll hum when powered up, but won’t spin on its own. If I spin the spindle manually, it’ll pic...
