What bandsaw blade to use? - 10 replies

Ok – because I know someone who has a 14” Jet bandsaw and no home for it, it is now sitting in my garage. He benefits because it’s in a secure location, and I benefit because I get to use it free of charge! It needs to be cleaned and tuned up, but then I plan on using it, initially to make end grain cutting boards. I also hav...

Interesting pneumatic circular saw - 6 replies

Doing a little Facebook marketplace browsing and came upon this ad for a Mall Saw, model P120A Just thought I’d post it here for others to see. I don’t have any intention of buying it, but the thought of an air powered circular saw is intriguing. Trying to imagine wh...

Tool strategy for a move to Alaska - 1 reply

Hey All, I’m planning on moving to Anchorage next spring/early summer, and for a while I’ve been thinking through the best/most economical approach to relocating (from Colorado) as far as my tools go. I’m just a hobbyist, so there’s not a ton at stake, but I want to maximize the bang for my buck. My general plan is...

What's causing this tear out? - Update: It's the arbor or flange - 24 replies

Hi Everyone, On the last two end grain cutting boards I’ve made, I have been getting some tear out while doing my second set of cuts. This has been problematic because the tear out is on the surface that mates to another strip, creating small voids in my joints when I do the final glue-up. After I noticed it the first time I cleaned...

Need help - warped cutting board! - 18 replies

So i just finished a walnut and purple heart end grain cutting board, and I had read that leaving the board in the sun will bring back some of the purple in the purple heart. So I left the house this morning with the sanded but unfinished board in the sunlight, and I just returned to find the board severely warped. There was no moisture on t...

Do you use salt for glue-ups? - 11 replies

I was just watching a show on TV (‘A Craftsman’s Legacy’ on PBS), and the woodworker sprinkled a few grains of salt on his glued up board before clamping them together. He explained that the salt grains keep the boards from sliding as you increase clamping pressure. Makes sense to me, but I had never heard of it, nor could ...

Makita Planer Jointer Saw (LM3001) - 41 replies

Hopefully checking this out tomorrow. I was too late on a Hitachi F1000A recently, but this seems to be a very similar machine(no fold down wings, though). It’s hard to find info on this model, although I’ve seen many write about the Makita 2030/N, which I think is a later version of this machine without the tablesaw. This may...

Potential Hitachi F1000A - 3 replies

So after my last failure in getting an Incra setup for next to nothing (because I was too late), I’m trying to move quickly on this Hitachi F1000A: From the little research I did it looks like a pretty good machine, and could be a great solution for my space and $ limited shop. Int...

What is this? Incra? - 14 replies

Hello everyone! New woodworker here. I just saw this posted on Craigslist and I was hoping someone here could identify exactly what it is. It looks like some kind of Incra product, but I could be way off. If it is Incra, the price would definitely be right – assuming I could find a use for it. I could always make a use for it! http...
