Grizzly carbide bandsaw blade - 8 replies

Has anyone tried the Grizzly carbide bandsaw blade? I’m replacing a timber wolf 3/8” blade that I screwed up on my Grizzly bandsaw. I think it was a pretty good multi-purpose blade but it’s only the second blade I have used and I use the bandsaw sporadically. There is no mention of a brand name, but $31 seems like a good value ...

Plane question- how old is this (see pic now)? - 7 replies

Can someone let me know how old this plane is? A google search returned a couple for sale here and there, but no real information. My dad had it laying around and he doesn’t remember where he got it from. It’s 14” and has markings C559MP, Stanley, Made in USA. Doesn’t seem too old but it’s hard to tell and any other...

Wood Gloat - 1 reply

Bought these 6 pieces Friday from my local wood store, Craftsmen Supply in Tampa. They have a 4×4x4 foot box of cutoffs and mill ends at $5 per pound, and this was just over 2 pounds so it cost me about 12 bucks. They get it refilled periodically and it was basically full and not so picked through yet. Great for a bunch of pens. Padauk, Mac...

better click pen kit? - 2 replies

Does anyone know of a better source for click pen kits? I’m happy with the quality of a Big Ben kit from PSI but afraid of the reviews on all of their click pens on their website. I’m looking for something of excellent quality and many people comment that the mechanism is cheap plastic. Thanks.

Not impressed with Jet lathe packaging - 2 replies

I received my second Jet 1014VSI lathe yesterday. The first one was badly damaged in transport from Amazon (UPS ground). The styrofoam was broken in pieces inside the box. The handwheel for the tailstock was snapped off and it had rattled around in the box gouging the lathe all over the place. The tailstock live center popped out and that was ra...

Lathe question/opinion - 17 replies

I will be purchasing a lathe soon and I’ve mostly settled on a Jet 1014. I plan to turn various things but mostly to complement other projects (knobs & legs for example). Once I get started turning I don’t really know what I’ll get into. I would also like to try pens. Is the variable speed/indexing worth the $75 for the 101...

Any tips for Katalox? - 1 reply

Any experiences/tips for Katalox (mexican royal ebony)? Planing, glueing, etc. I ordered some for a chess board project. The other squares will be bird’s eye maple. Thanks.

Grizzly 14" Extreme Guides Opinion - 3 replies

I’ll need to replace my guide bearings soon. One sounds shot and it’s heating up a little. Should I replace the bearings or is there an alternate guide system available that is recommended, like Coolblocks or a ceramic system? I have a 3/8” timberwolf on there now and I use my saw for a little bit of everything.
