I recall seeing a plan for a platform guest bed which all fit into a piece of furniture which was about 60” wide x 30” tall x 12” deep in a woodworking magazine about 20 years ago. I kept the idea in the back of my head in case there was ever a need for such a piece. My folks are moving from their 4-bedroom farm home they hav...

Porter Cable Router 7518 - 1 reply

LJs, I’m looking to buy a dead or dying Porter Cable 7518 (router base model #75361) so I can permanently mount a base on my router table and not have to remove the one on my horizontal router table.

HELP! What to do about warped MDF . . . - 12 replies

I’m in the process of recycling lab cabinets from university surplus into a workbench that will be the outfeed table for my saw. This is a very low budget bench and I’d like to keep it that way. I purchased 1-1/8” MDF for the top ($3.00 a sheet). The one that I cut for this bench is rather dirty on one side and it is warped. In the picture...

Tamarack/Larch - How much does it weigh? - 3 replies

Can anyone help me out with how much 900 board feet of Tamarack would weigh? Also, am I correct in thinking it could be a good wood to be used for a deck? It’s decay resistant, but is it strong enough? Thanks for any help you can give me.

HELP! I need a new fan blade for a Grizzly 1023 table saw 3HP motor - 2 replies

I purchased a used G1023 Grizzly tablesaw. The previous owner did not take very good care of it. The plastic fan blade was loose on the motor and hitting the guard cover so it is “ground down” on the end. The Grizzly manual does not break down the motor parts to order a new fan blade. Does anyone know where I can buy one? The ...

Help! Does anyone know something about the Supermax 25x2 drum sander? - 2 replies

I have an opportunity to purchase a Supermax 25×2 drum sander with digital depth gauge for about $1100. It was used for about one year by a woodworker who is now disabled. Rockler’s price with shipping and tax would be $4361.09—that is without the digital depth gauge. It adds an additional $500.00. The retail price is some...
