Having Movers Move My Home/Shop - I Need Your Advise - 18 replies

I lost my job last November but the good news is that I found a new one right away and for more $. The down side is I have to move but the up side is the new company is moving me, ie footing the bill. I’m not really moving all that far, only about 4-1/2 hours east of where I am now. But it’s far enough that I can’t commute. ...

What is this blotch and how do I fix it? - 13 replies

I built a nightstand / bedside table to go with the bed that I made. Today, I found this: I’m not sure how I could apply a coat of stain, 4 coats of finish and two coats of wax and never notice this! I’ve used the same combination of stain / finish / wax on other projects and never had a problem. Stain: 1 coat of Minwax G...

Blaklader Workwear Bantam Kangaroo Vest - 1 reply

Anyone have one of these? I ordered one this week from Amazon but had to return it because it was WAY WAY too small. I ordered an XXL and I could barely get it zipped up even with the extended zipper. I was curious if these typically run small. It fit me more like a XL would have. Thanks,

Plane Till Rake - 1 reply

How much rake should a plane till have? I should clarify that I want to build one and I don’t want to have to add ties to hang the planes from, just sit in the till. Does 8° sound about right?

Staves with Compound Miters - 22 replies

I need a little help. I have a project in my head, an 8 sided waste basket that’s wider at the top then the bottom. How in the world do I cut the staves? The staves need to be 4-3/8” at the top and 3-1/2” at the bottom with a 22.5° miter. It’s not a lot of tapper but the bottom should set just about 1” in from ...

Bandsaw Table, what the pin for? - 7 replies

This seems like a silly question to me but what is that pin for sticking in the side of my Band Saw table? The one that you have to remove to change the blade. I know it has a purpose or Delta wouldn’t have spent the money to add it. thanks,

Donkey Ear - 2 replies

Does anyone know of any resources that talk about how to build a Donkey Ear? The concept of a Donkey Ear is fairly straight forward but I was wondering how you go about calibrating one. I’ve also seen different styles and was curious about the advantages / disadvantages or each. thanks, c

Jointing an edge that is tearing out, what to do? - 20 replies

I ran into a situation that I just couldn’t get passed tonight, I should say get passed easily. I re-sawed some 3/4 walnut to make a 1/4” thick glued up a panel. I will normally joint the edges of the pieces that need it with my Veritas low angle jointer using the “fold it like a book method.” This method usually works ...

Workbench as an Outfeed Table - 12 replies

For those of you that use your workbench as an outfeed table, what do you do about the miter slots? My outfeed table doubles as my workbench. As an outfeed table, it the tops. It’s 4’x4’ with a laminated top, lots of storage underneath and I can even hide stuff on the floor under it. As a workbench, not so much. It doesn...

Free Walnut - You pay Shipping - 13 replies

I have some Black Walnut that I’m not going to bother with. You can have it if you pay for the shipping. It’s just small pieces that I cut off of the ends of longer boards, some have some dry rot. It is what it is. Its enough walnut to fill the box that my Delta Band Saw Riser came in. If you really need to know the bf, I can me...

Band Saw insert sits too low - 11 replies

The insert on my new Delta band saw sits too low. This causes the workpiece to catch when cutting. Does anyone have any suggestions on how to go about getting it up the the same height of the table top? Thanks.

Belt Size for 10" Delta Contractor Saw - 5 replies

Peachtree had a $20 sale last week and I got a set of In-Line Industries pullies for my saw but it didn’t come with the link belt. Does anyone know what size belt is on a 10” Delta Contractor Saw? I’ve enclosed the rear end of my saw and it’s a PITA to take it apart and I can’t see the number from the top. I see...

Band Saw Blade Guide Replacements - 1 reply

I FINALLY broke down and bought a new band saw. I got the riser block and the Kreg fence for it. I still need to swap out the blade guides. I’m not going to spend the $160 at this time for roller guides but $15 – $22 for replacement blade guides is easy to justify. Is there any advantage to Cool Blocks over the Ceramic Blocks? T...

I’m going to be in Madison over the weekend, is there any “be sure not to miss this place” that I should add to the list? I plan on stopping by the Woodcraft store to just do a little browsing. Thanks.

Table Saw Thrust Washer - 1 reply

Anyone have a source for new TS 5/8 thrust washers? I’ve tried to flatten mine and I think I’ve only made it worse. The blades have a wobble visible to the naked eye now. So much for being handy. x

Morse Taper / Jacobs Taper Identification help - 9 replies

I would like to get a new chuck, a smaller one for smaller bits, for my Drill Press. It’s a Morse Taper Chuck but I’m having troubles positively identifying the taper. It’s a metric chuck and it’s stamped 3-16mm B16. B16? I was expecting a JT number. Is this a metric thing that I’m unfamiliar with? I was hopin...
