  1. Cuban Mahogany Jewelry Chest

    In an earlier project post, I told the story of this now-rare Cuban mahogany that was cut in south Florida shortly after WWII. My friend gave me another rough-cut board, roughly 1" x 7" x 60". After making much sawdust, this is what was left (well, okay, I've still got a few scraps). On the...
  2. The Tennesee Stud

    "The Tennesee stud was long and lean, the color of the sun, and his eyes were green. He had the nerve, and he had the blood… there never was a horse like the Tennesee stud!" This old hoss is feeling pretty stud-ly, with his stripe-dy pants and rodeo buckle! He is ready to chase a few fillies...

  4. Simple Bathroom Shelf Unit

    A very simple to make bathroom shelf unit. Actually it was overly simple. It is all made from recycled Rimu wood. Build video can be viewed here
  5. Man Cave TV House -- Version 2

    Feb 4, 2014 Since my last posting, more experimenting has taken place. A plexiglass front cover over the front of the TV was added for protection and the TV sounded muffled. I determined that rebuilding the box housing was in order. The design was made to let the sound out of the box on the...
  6. Kissin stool

    My cousin approached me yesterday and said " I need a step stool " So we went out to the shop and set to making one. The wood is a maple that my father felled just before he passsed away in 2008. This same cousin and I milled it with his Alaska sawmill. When we were about half done Dan...
  7. Walnut Crotch Bowl

    Here is a 9-inch bowl turned from a walnut crotch. It is approximately 3/16" thick with an ogee shape. I sanded it to 1500 grit, finished it with Danish Oil, and buffed it. Thanks for looking!
  8. Table Saw Fence Micro Ajustor

    I made this jig from some baltic birch, a small clamp and three rare earth magnets. I used epoxy to set the clamp and magnets. It works great but I am going to add three more magnets for better holding. I used it this morning to remove one thousand of an inch from a board, thanks GREG.

    I am about to purchase a Menard's Performax 1-1/4 compact router. It is on sale this week for only $49. This comes with both 1/4" and 3/8" collets. It has a 6.5 amp motor, led light, variable speed with soft start. It also has a two year warranty as do other Performax power tools. I should add...

    One of the tools I lusted after for almost a year was a drum sander. However after a year and half in the shop, it hardly gets used. I bought mostly to sand my homemade veneers but I'm not resawing much veneer these days. I also bought it to make sanding my end grain cutting boards easier. In...

    Hi everyone, I have a question I was hoping a member could help me with. I recently acquired a Performax Supermax 25×2 sander for free. I've had to put some $$$ into it as it was not stored well and some things have rust and pits. Anyway… my question is regarding the electrical connection. I...
  12. Marketplace Classifieds
    I'm not surprised it's not often someone wants to part with one of these machines. I'm so irritated I barely missed a good opportunity not long ago. Would prefer travelling within the mid-lower Michigan area, but would go to Indiana/Ohio if meeting someone halfway would work. Might consider...

    Just acquired this late model drum sander and for the life of me, cannot locate a manual for this model - the closest I could find is the Jet 22-44 Pro Model 638003. It's not like I need to rebuild it or anything, but like any older equipment, I'd like to have the original documents in order to...

    LJs, Yesterday I picked up a Pre-Jet 16-32 DS with a 1HP motor from an estate sale. It appeared to be in decent shape however the coupler half drum was cracked so I had to order a new one. Anyhow, I have a ton of cherry to sand and I am a little worried about burning issues if this thing pops a...

    Does anyone have this older model manual? This sander is of the 1993 vintage model 613G01. The drum switch is next to the conveyer knob not vertical above the conveyor. Also curious if this has the intellisand feature. Thanks!

    Hello all. I have been hunting for a used drum sander and have dibs on this. Seller is out of town for a few days. Should i take a good look or pass? Asking $1k and needs a new conveyor belt. I really have been wanting a new (ish) Supermax 19-38. How would this unit compare? Any previous or...

    I've been struggling with an issue with my Performax 10-20 drum sander for a long time and I think it's finally time I seek some advice. My issue is that in use the wrapped sandpaper creeps from right to left. And if I don't shut things down every few passes, sandpaper edges will start to...

    I've been asked to assist a friend with valuing and eventually liquidating a relative's estate that included some woodworking machines. One is a "Performax Drum Sander, Model No. 16-32 Plus". It is on a stand with rollers, and there are several rolls of sandpaper refills. It has infeed and...

    I received a Harbor Freight catalog! Why is this a surprise? Because there was only one today. Leafing through it, I'm stunned to realize that I've bought a ton of stuff from these people over the years, the vast majority of it from retail outlets, first in Charleston and later from Scranton...
