Where do you guys buy single bits to replace bits in a set? I’ve looked around a lot, but still not sure where to buy decent single bits from a reputable source. I have 4 sets of bits: 1. Forstner Bits – good quality – (none needed) 2. Brad Point Bits – decent quality (a couple of bits needed) 3. ...

Written by Bruce The very first laugh we had was when we first met outside on their lawn and Bert and I discovered we both wore suspenders AND belts. That totally cracked all us up. We need the suspenders cuz neither one of us likes saggy pants below our “love handles” and I like a belt because I carry my big Leatherman on it, as I don’...

And they deserve a shout out. I decided to splurge and gave each and every one of my @#$%^& Phillips screws (all neatly organized) to my sons. I also ordered the sample assortment of over a 1000 square-drive screws from McFeely’s. I received them, did a few projects and then reordered additional assortments in 6 and 8 and 10 that I ...

I cannot figure out how to make this dado the correct depth without tearing up my coping Sled I know to use a shim under the router table fence that is the same thickness as the Coping Sled base. No problem there. Although the photos do not show the shim, they do show a small strip on the sled base up against the fence that I “remov...

$305 on local school auction site (in a Jr. High). Everything works perfectly, as near as I can tell after having a month. Even still has original packaging wrapping on stand. I love the depth stop. Gave my old (and very good) drill press to my son (including table) so I get to make a new table for this one.

I feel like a total dummy resorting to posting this, but I just bought the Rigid EB 44242 and I cannot get the sandpaper tight on the spindle drums. The belt works great. Got it all aligned, etc. Great. But, I cannot get the paper tight enough on any of the drums so that they will sand, even with me just holding the sandpaper with my fi...

We have been having afternoon thunder bumpers, but no rain. Sure is nice to enjoy the cool air in the afternoon. Today, a big one snuck up on me and it starting pouring. I had the big doors open and it took a minute to get everything inside. Closed the big doors and went inside for lunch. Came back and noticed (in the glare kinda) tha...

In eating lunch so I thought i would ask this. My wife just came out and commented “How can you write all over your prized saw” “You don’t let anyone even get near it, etc, etc, etc.” Why don’t you use that pad of notepaper that is laying right there? Now, she said this all very nicely, just sincerely ...

Waxed Paper Keeps Glue Off Clamps - 4 replies
I know that the issue of glue on clamps has been discussed on here many times. I know that I have learned much from posts about things folks have learned and then told us about it. A lot of these were extremely important when I was really new to woodworking. After a while I think some of us begin to take for granted things we know a...
