As the title says, I’m thinking of using a dado chipper to cut the spline slots in a mitered box I’m making. Ole butter fingers here dropped the only blade I had that made flat bottom slots. I broke off six of the teeth. Is it possible to use one of the chippers from my dado set to make the slots for the miter splines? Am I asking f...

Where do you buy your jointer knives? - 13 replies

I have a Delta JT160 benchtop jointer. It’s not the greatest tool in the world, but for my smaller jointing projects it’s OK. The factory blades suck though. They wear very quickly and have to be reset constantly. Does anyone have a lead on some aftermarket knives that would replace the factory ones. All I seem to be able to find ...

Rockwell/Delta 10" Bandsaw, Model 28-100. Is this worth the price? - 7 replies

I found this band saw on Craig’s List today. It looks to be in pretty good shape. Anyone know much about it and is it worth what the seller’s asking? Only reason I’ld want it is that my grandfather had one just like it back in the early 60’s. That and I’m looking for a small second band saw. The seller’s as...

What Harbor Freight tools would you buy? - 58 replies

I’m already planning on how to spend my tax return (after catching up on bills) and would like to stretch it as far as possible. HF has the best prices by far but some really questionable quality. I know their dust collection is supposed to be a great bargain and some of the hand tools are decent for the money. What else do you consider...

Is Danish oil the right finish for my project? - 3 replies

Hi All, I’m making a slit/tongue drum ala Stevinmarin for a Christmas gift. For the sides I used some nicely grained Maple with tigering that I happened to find in the big orange box store. The top is some reclaimed 100 year old Honduran mahogany. I’ld like to use Danish oil (Watco) that I have for the sides to highlight the gr...
