Could use some help with drill press rebuild - 17 replies

I’m getting ready to restore this old ugly bastard I got at an estate sale for $40 and I have a few questions. I can’t find this exact models owner manual to get a parts diagram. I checked out Vintage Machinery and the closest I can get is a for a Craftsman 103.23620 where as the Dunlap is a 103.23622. They are very similar but ...

Robland X-31 in Lawernce, KS - 2 replies

This isn’t mine and I don’t know much about Robland machines but I was intrigued because I’ve never seen one up for sale in my area before. I have no clue if $2,000 is a decent price for one or not but it seems you get a whole lot of heavy ass machine for that money. Here is the Craigslist postinghttps://kansascity.craigs...

I could use some chisel advice - 51 replies

I posted this question on another forum..not sure why, maybe testing the quality of the community…and was pretty much told I’m an idiot that doesn’t know how to sharpen. And cheap chisels will do anything expensive chisels will. My hand planes beg to differ about the quality of my edged tools. I think I could give many a woo...

Shop break in - 26 replies

My garage shop was broken into last night. I was awake at the time and watching TV. My alarm was armed and the panel announced “Intruder Garage”. So I grabbed my side arm and went to check it out. My garage door opener has a motion sensor for the light and the door between the kitchen and garage has a window with a curtain. Sure...

JET DC-1100VX-CK vs shop vac cyclone - 16 replies

I don’t currently have a dust collector and my shop is very limited on what I can run at the moment. I have a nice shop vac cyclone cart I built that does a fair job but the shop is still pretty dusty to say the least. I have limited breakers available so there is no way to get anything 2 hp or larger. The entire electrical panel need...

First time tuning a lunch box planer - 9 replies

I bought a used Ridgid TP1300 back in January. I’ve never owned a planer before and had trouble getting this bird to sing. It wasn’t abused by any means but definitely fell into the category of “road hard and put away wet”. First thing I did was check the knives. The ones in it were dull but hadn’t been flippe...

Bench grinder tool rest upgrade questions - 30 replies

I’m looking to upgrade the tool rest on my 8” bench grinder. I have the Shop Fox W1840 variable speed grinder. The tool rest on it has detents/notches in the adjuster. And unfortunately for me 25 deg does not seem to be one of the settings. So I’m looking to upgrade. I’ve been restoring enough planes lately I want to...

Need parts for a Lion Universal Cutter No 4 - 16 replies

Bought this Lion miter trimmer like a year ago and finally getting around to it’s restoration. I don’t know a whole lot about them besides how they work. I paid $100 bucks for this one and seems to be in pretty good shape minus a few missing parts. I would like to replace both springs and I am missing the locking pins that go in...

Question about bench plane iron repair - 3 replies

Here is a close up of the iron I’m attempting to repair. My question is if that corner needs to be ground out? This thing had about 36 different angles across the face of it and I’ve already removed just under a 1/16th of the iron to get it where it is now. I have it ground at 25 deg all across the front the depth that I will pu...

For Sale: Stanley Type 15 No 3 restored and tuned - 5 replies

Selling a Stanley Type 15 No 3 I recently did a full restoration on. The mouth on this one is not perfect so listing it at a discount. It doesn’t effect its performance any as the last pic shows full width transparent shavings. It will ship sharp and ready to use with 25 deg primary and 30 deg secondary bevel. Asking $65 with free ...

What am I doing wrong with pocket holes? - 24 replies

I don’t want to turn this into a pocket hole vs some other kind of jointery debate. That being said I was just trying to figure out what they are good for besides face frames. If I try to use pocket holes to build a simple cabinet carcass I inevitably have something that looks like a box but has 2 or 3 square corners on it. Am I expec...

Shop safety upgrades - 8 replies

I’ve been at my new shop almost a year now and most of the time has been just setting it up and getting used to it. Now that I have something I like and I’m not moving tools around every other week I want to start focusing on safety. About the only thing I wear consistently is a respirator when Im sanding or spraying. I don’...

Blocked by ebay tool dealer - 45 replies

I’m not sure what to think about this. I buy and sell on ebay quite frequently. Anything from tools to gadgets or computer parts. I have a single black mark on my record from a dispute because the buyer changed their mind and I didn’t accept a return. Other than that its nothing but positive feedback. The real kicker is I̵...

Need recommendations for a new Jigsaw - 26 replies

I’ve owned 2 jig saws thus far. One was a Skill i bought super cheap years ago and it learned what a sledge hammer is. I now have a cordless Ridgid which is way better than the skill and awesome i can take it with me but not accurate enough for a lot of things I want to use it for. The things I like on the Ridgid are variable speed, L...

Router table dust collection - 4 replies

I’m in the process of finishing up my custom cabinet for my Shopsmith Overarm Pin router and I had some questions about dust collection. I will be adding a Jess’Em Master Fence II to the top which has dust collection built in. My temp fence just gets a shop vac positioned as close as possible. Underneath the table will be an encl...

Sometimes I'm REALLY dumb - 1 reply

Was working on the cabinet carcass for my router table today and this happened. Several things all went dumb at the same time today. About the only thing i did right was double checked the speed for the blade i chose before making my cut. I have a Makita track saw. In fact its what i used to make the cabinet sides. The process was sup...

Tools that misbehave - 9 replies

I’m pretty much just ranting here but when I buy a tool that is identical to another one that I have loved for a few years and the new one is a cheaper version of the SAME EXACT thing I get quite frustrated. My original Milwaukee 16’ auto lock tape has the nice vinyl printed scale on both sides. It has seen quite a bit of use and...

Shop Smith Model 10ER multi tool - 14 replies

So I message a guy about a planer and he asks if I want to pick up a Shop Smith Model 10ER from 1952 for $200 bucks as well. I have no idea what one is so I hit the Googles and I’m still confused what it is. From what I can tell its a drill press, disc sander, table saw, lathe, and possibly kitchen sink. Here is the tool in question. ...

Failing finish and not sure why - 16 replies

As some of you are aware I like restoring old hand planes. My typical finish process for totes and knobs is to apply a flood coat of danish oil to pop the grain, wipe the excess off after about 15 min or just before it gets tacky, let that sit and cure for 3 days, spray a coat of clear shellac as a sealer, and top coat with semi gloss lacquer. ...

Shop Smith overarm router table - 16 replies

I’ve never owned a router table before. Heck I’ve never had a router bigger than a trim router before. I went and picked up this combo today for $260. I don’t know much about the table other than it was built in 1989 and was used by a serious hobbyist wood worker who recently passed. The porter cable router is an old USA ...
