What are the odds? - 49 replies

Over the years there have been a few posts on here reminding us all to unplug when changing blades, bits, etc. Yesterday I was changing the bit in my router table and remembered I hadn’t unplugged. I started to think about that thought. In ten plus years of woodworking I have never, ever had a piece of equipment turn itself on. Never…...

Forrest 10" blade - 2 replies

Two teeth have come off my saw blade. Is this simply a case of returning the blade to Forrest for repair or are there typically local options for a person to use? Thanks,

never mistake for trolling. I live in CA/OR, depending on the time of the year, and know that the northwest is a big provider of most all things pine. However, I love to work with walnut and maple and yet I don’t have a clue as to where our best walnut and maple come from other than “back east”.Most folks like to brag about the...

Let’s try an experiment. Let’s see if we can get through the entire day without any dumbass posts. Posts like “How much would this cost” and “First router”. You would make me soooo happy.

Glue guns - 17 replies

On occasion during glue ups or dry runs I will use a dollop of hot glue to keep things in place. I seldom use my glue gun and it seems there should be lots of uses. When do you guys use your glue guns?

If you don’t care about your spelling do you care about the quality of your work? Are you as lazy about a job well done as you are about your spelling? Do you proof your work and not your writing? I don’t think so. Lazy in one area, lazy in another. It makes sense…

Lumberjocks I have never, ever asked a dumb question. I figure after all that time I am owed one. Here is the question. “How do I do the quoting process when responding on a thread?” I am on an Android tablet and do not have access to a Windows machine. I see the light tan backed quotes on posts and can’t figure out how to do i...

The workbenches pictured in the Workbench Smack Down thread are some of the most skillfully made, beautiful benches I have ever seen. However, I do not think it is representative of the majority of the workbenches used by the majority of the good fellows on Lumberjocks. I think there are a lot of very good and functional benches out there that s...

Best cordless tool warrantees... - 27 replies

In my last post concerning corded and cordless drills B4B brought up a point I did not know. He said the Ridgid cordless drill warranty covered batteries. This is enough to cause me to buy a couple of Ridgid drills. What are your experiences? Have you taken advantage of the Ridgid battery replacement? Are there other brands with similar warranti...

How many of you own both corded and cordless drills? - 41 replies

I have owned the same two Dewalt drills for over 20 years. Every five years or so I buy new batteries and continue on. I’m about ready to order another set of batteries. I asked myself why not just buy corded and be done with the challenges of battery powered drills. Or, should I buy corded drills and a new set of batteries, or, should I b...
