  1. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hey, New here because I just came up against a problem I can't seem to figure out. I have a Dewalt DW735 which I have been using for a couple months with very little problems. However, today it started to do this thing which I simply don't understand. I was running a cherry board ~13" wide...
  2. Hand Tools
    Found this video that shows how a hand plane works filmed through a microscope: It is a bit long and nerdy but has some intersting conclutions on how a chip braker shoud be used. Worth a look! How do you adjust your planes?
  3. Designing Woodworking Projects
    I have a potential client that wants me to make boxes for him that have, and I quote: "...some kind of a hidden button to open the box so that a key is not necessary, some kind of trick latch or something." I came up with what I thought was a pretty ingenious idea for a magnetic catch, but he...
  4. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I've been trying to avoid dust-producing power tools, but I've almost given up. I've noticed people work without any protection most of the time, but I have severe asthma so I'm looking for a mask.

    I have been thinking about upgrading my dust collection system and PSI's TEMPEST Portable 2HP Cyclone Dust Collector caught my eye. They have it on sale now for $895 and free shipping. The 0.3 micron cannister would trap more of the fines, and the 2hp blower has a 14" impeller. The small...
  7. Finishing
    Hello LumberJocks! I am a complete novice and could use some guidance from the pros. I have acquired a huge salvaged butcher block style workbench top (54×64) and I am hoping to use it as a dining room table. I would like to maintain the patina to an extent but would not mind losing/lightening...

  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have my planer set up with a dust catcher (big garbage can) because I dont have a dust COLLECTION system in my shop. Someone was nice enough to give me that Dewalt cloth bag that fits over a trash can. Here's my basic setup. . . . When I turn the planer on that bag fills with air like a...
