Walker-Turner saw and jointer - 0 replies

A few more tools I’ve either never used or havent used in a long time. First up is a nice 6” jointer with cast iron legs. I gave it a quick rehab about 6 years, new bearings and lubed everything. Motor doesn’t work and didn’t when I bought it, not sure what is wrong with it. Asking $200 local pick up but I could transpor...

For sale shaper, cutters, tenon gauge - 1 reply

Dug out a couple more things that need to go, I haven’t used them in years. First is a tenon gauge, I don’t know who made it but it has a big base and heavy castings, it’s very stable. I’d like $50 plus shipping if you don’t come and get it. Dog not included. Next is a shaper and cutters that I would lik...

Dust collector for sale - 0 replies

I bought this new in 1987 when I started my business and used it with a table saw and planer for about three years when I moved my shop. I haven’t used it since. It is made to sit on a 55 gal drum to collect the chips, but it was a pain to empty. I built a cabinet that it is sitting on so the chips go into a drawer, easy to empty. I though...

General 8" Jointer - 1 reply

More tools need to go. I’m just not using them and I need to make room. I haven’t even turned this jointer on in probably 5 years, but I did today and she is ready to work. Beds are about 5’ long, motor is 220. It is a bit less accessible than in the photo so it is difficult to check the HP. It needs a new home where someone wi...

Walker Turner table saw - 20 replies

I need to make room for a new machine so this has to go. Ten inch cabinet saw from the 40’s I’m guessing. It was my main saw but I upgraded to a 70’s unisaw. This got moved to a seldom used shop in case I needed it. I haven’t. Motor is 220 but could be reconfigured back to 110, though I don’t recommend it. Here̵...

Old Norwegian trunk, dovetails and other musings - 39 replies

My wife’s family has an amazing Norwegian “cabin” ( I use that term loosely) that was built in the early ‘50’s on an island off the coast of Maine. It is quite a magical place filled with carving very where, a sod roof and lots of antiques. One of the pieces I’ve always admired is a trunk that is used to store...

Bad day in the Hamptons - 31 replies

Last summer I bought a NOS Grizzly 18” band saw. I set it up for resawing only, I used it occasionally total run time say eight hours. Got it out to rip laminates this morning, turned it on and the blade ran forward on the wheels and into the wheel covers. Crap! Take the blade off, put a new one on and start to tension the blade and adjust...

Tool box - 35 replies

I found this little (10” x 14” x 31/2”) box on a non woodworking forum and I’m trying to find some answers and generally start a discussion on compact tool storage. The question I have is, does anyone have any idea what those curved lines on that brass triangle would be used for or what they might represent? This box has ...

Vise advise - 14 replies

I really like the threads here where everyone can add their own info onto one thread. I want to see your favorite vise, did you build a vise, share how you did it. I have an old vise that I’m looking for info on so I’ll start. If there seems to be a lull I’ve got several more I can share. I found this one on Craigslist this pas...
