Jet 6" Jointer - 16 replies

All, I am looking at an older Jet 6” jointer. My area on CL is very slow, and doesn’t hardly ever have much. This thing looks to be in very good condition, owner says in runs fine and I can run it without issue if I come and look. $300 cash is the lowest the seller will go. What do you all think? I know, I know… Sav...

Simple and effective drill press depth stop - 7 replies

If you are anything like me, and own a drill press which uses the “two nut” method for adjusting the depth stop, then I have no doubt in my mind you are fed up with trying to set and adjust the thing. When depth is important, it becomes very frustrating, very quickly. I looked for a better solution to purchase, but couldn’t f...

Whole Shop Kill Switch - 8 replies

Like the kind you would find in a woodshop classroom, specifically in the high school setting, buttons in strategically placed positions around the room to cut power to the machines… Where do you get this kind of system? I am guessing it runs on a relay system of some type? More or less just interested in how it works, what a similar sy...

First Projects for 2016... - 10 replies

Happy New Years, yall. I figured for the new year, might as well host a thread for what we are currently working on, or finishing up. I just finished up (last night) a coat rack for SWMBO. I was tired of not having a place to hang my jacket after work, so I made this for “her.” See what I did there? Made out of cherry, with a pi...

What am I missing here? - 15 replies

I have had this bandsaw blade sitting around, unused, for quite some time now. I had a mishap with another blade, so I figured it was time to pull this out an put it on the saw. Removed the old one, opened guides, etc. etc. and went to put it on… First thing I noticed, it doesn’t seem to flex as well as others (while trying to f...

Corner Shelves... How do these mount? - 9 replies

Well, it happens again… Wife looks at Pinterest, and has a build request. This time, she wants a shelving unit for the corner. Shelf looks fairly simple to build, but what I am puzzled by, is how do these things mount?? She wants to put her books on it, and maybe a few knick-knack things, and books aren’t exactly light. We have ...

"Starter Pack" - 15 replies

That other thread, “what kind of woodworker are you,” got me thinking. It seems many of use are majority power tool woodworkers. I use chisels on almost every project, to clean up mortises and such, but thats about the extent. As someone else mentioned, I have thought about getting a hand plane or two, to try, but as with everythi...

Tell me what you see... - 11 replies

All, I have a chance to get this stack of wood fairly cheap (probably around $125). I hardly need to travel, as its just down the road from a friend who I am visiting with tomorrow, but I just want to ensure it is worth it. Was the guys fathers, and they are getting rid of some of his stuff. He was an intarsia artist, so I would guess seve...

Walmart LED Shop Lighting - 11 replies

Saw these while “school supply” shopping with the family yesterday at Walmart. Anyone have any info on them, or have used them? Not quite as cheap as the Costco ones, but being I am not a member, nor do I have one local, these would actually be cheaper for me. Specs on them seem slightly better than the Costco ones. I think am going ...

Delta 36-725 vs Grizzly G0771 - 17 replies

Hello All, Wondering if you can give me your opinions on the above mentioned saws. Haven’t found much info on the 0771, and I know that Delta supposedly has iffy CS. Anyway, I am semi-new to woodworking and setting up my garage as a shop area. I DO NOT have 220 and cannot pull in a new circuit as I do not plan to be in this home/sett...
