Guitar blank jointing question - 7 replies

I recently purchased a section of ash that I want to glue up and make a guitar body blank. I ran the pieces through my router table to join them but after multiple passes I still have a slight gap.

Wilton vise restoration - 2 replies

It’s been awhile but thought I would share a recent project with you all. I’ve recently been experimenting with electrolysis for rust removal and decided to try it out on an old bench vise that my dad recovered from a storage shed fire we had in 1991.

Router table cabinet - 15 replies

So I began to build my router table and I started with the cabinet. I am building this mostly off of Norm Abram’s plans but I eliminated the toe kick since I would like to be able to move it around the garage.

I was just curious if anyone else here cleans out their glue bottle tips after being done with them for the day.

Lathe bearing replacement - 19 replies

I need to source replacement bearings for my Rikon wood lathe. However, the local bearing shops are open during hours when I am at work and taking time off right now is out of the question.

Stupid question on finish nailers - 12 replies

I am in the market to purchase either a 15 or 16 gauge finish nailer. The gauges are so close in size that if I buy one, I probably won’t have any immediate desire for the other. I have an 18 gauge brad nailer and a furniture staple gun (both pneumatic) that are Bostitch brand. They have both been very reliable for me but yet have not b...
