Hi everyone,For the last few weeks (don’t remember exactly how long), most pictures on these forums have not been showing. The only clues that there should be pix are statements like, “Here’s a pic of ….. ”, “This is the ….. ”, and “Here is ….. ” (fill in the banks with whatever i...

Apostrophes in quotes going AWOL. - 7 replies

Hi all,Whenever I quote a message, any apostrophes get replaced with spaces. Why?Is it to combat the misuse/abuse of the apostrophe? E.g. Flower’s instead of flowers, it’s instead of its, etc. But that does not make sense, because legit apostrophes are removed likewise also.Did an errorist hack into the LJ server?Remember, when you m...

Using furnace blower for homemade DC? - 8 replies

Hi Jocks, My Mom had her furnace replaced last spring, and I saved the old one, not knowing what I might do with it. I was thinking, maybe use the blower from it, in a homemade dust collector. I don’t know what the horsepower or amp ratings on it are; the clamp band that holds the motor in place is covering most of the nameplate.It h...

Why do 10" tabe saws have less than 3-1/2" cutting capacity? - 8 replies

This is something I have questioned for over a decade. Most 10” TS’s have a cut capacity of 3-1/8 – 3-1/4” I just checked the SawStop website; all their models have 3-1/8” cut cap. Why is that? What’s wrong with being able to cut a 4×4 in a single pass? Or gang-X-cut a bunch of 2×4s on edge in one go...

I know, there’s Craigslist, eBay, and the like, bu...

Question about using metal turning lathe for turning wood. - 8 replies

This is a question about whether it’s good at all to use a metal turning lathe for wood turning.I do not have a lathe now. I plan to eventually get one. I would also like to get into metalworking, So, instead of getting separate lathes for turning wood and metal, I would rather do both with one machine. To save shop space, resources, and $...
