Bandsaw Purchase - 12 replies

I’ve been sizing up bandsaws, reading nearly everything I can find about 14 inch saws. Some limiting factors – I only have 110/20 amp service in my garage and upgrading to 220/30 amp is a nice idea, but not an option in the short run. If and when I have a new garage built, it will be without question part of the build. Price &#...

Laugh or cry? - 11 replies

Minor Tool Gloat - 1 reply

I scored a Grizzly G1163 1 HP Light Duty Dust Collector, new in the box with the optional Hepa filtration insert from CL for $75 today. The seller bought it new a couple of years ago and never put it to work after having second thoughts about it. Not a huge score, but it’s nice to run across a too good to pass up deal every now and t...

I don't know if I should be glad or sad - 1 reply

I just saw this on CL a few minutes ago – I am unsure how I feel about it. I am glad to see it’s still around but also sad to know that it’s in the hands of morons who think of it as a statement piece.

Woodstock W1100 Slickplane - 3 replies

Anyone have one of these Slickplanes? I am thinking about buying one to try it out. It looks like a nice alternative to using a round-over bit in a router. Your thoughts and observations?

Rockler Groupon in Minnesota - 1 reply

Hey all, in case you have not seen it, Rockler has a Groupon $15 for $30. It says Burnsville store only, but I was in the Minnetonka store today and overheard the store staff discussing it. It seems they will be honoring it there too. I got mine!
