Gold Standards... - 74 replies
We all know the Sawstop is the gold standard by which all other tablesaws are judged. That said, I’m a little hazy on which brands capture the gold standard ribbon on other types of power equipment. I’m guessing Dewalt holds the standard for most of the handheld power tools. How about planers, jointers, bandsaws, etc. Any ideas? A...

When I practice woodturning in my quest to turn a chess set I have discovered all I need are the chisels pictured below. Keeping in mind the small size of the pieces I would appreciate any suggestions that I could add to the list of chisels. Thanks,

The tool I bought... - 23 replies
many years ago, never used it and am now discovering how useful it is. I am sure you all have a similar story. There is another thread going asking which tool is your most useless. Let’s start another thread with which tool have you recently found useful that you didn’t use in the past. BTW, watch where yours hands and fingers ar...

mm tape... - 4 replies
Some of the plans that I download are either from Canada or England woodworkers and we all know their plans are in metric. So, instead of continually trying to convert and/or approximate I have purchased a metric tape. Now I can follow the plans exactly. I don’t understand why it took me so long to cave. A lightbulb moment… BTW, ...

My brand new Dewalt lathe and duplicator... - 21 replies
Just finished painting and reassembling. In between the build and the paint I managed to play with it a bit and it seems to work well. Yesterday my Capt Eddie chisels arrived. I have also modified a couple of old chisels I have. After a little more practice I am going to attempt a chess set for my grandson. Below are s...

LJ Topics - 91 replies
About a year or so ago when a topic was published it would move past page one within an hour or two unless it attracted comments. Now, it can take all day for a topic to migrate from the top to the next page. This tells me there is not as much action on the site. Has member interest been lost? Have interesting members been lost? Or, maybe there ...

1. Goodbye Jim. You’re one of the most level headed, calm, nice guys I know. I wish you luck in your retirement should you go that direction. However, before leaving you have to relinguish the title of Grand Pooba of Lumberjocks. If I find someone worthy of the title I will bestow it upon the lucky member.2. While reading all of the ...

I have always been interested in... - 17 replies
woodturning. I love to watch the Youtube videos of the professionals turning chunks of wood into beautiful works of art. But, I have never been able to justify a lathe until recently. I want to make small knobs and handles to go with the projects I make. So, I started looking at small lathes. One of the first things I noticed was all the ma...

Dovetail question... - 11 replies
As I do more and more dovetails with my new dovetail guide I have found it is pretty difficult to get into the tight spots of the tail board to clean out waste. The steep bevel sides of my chisels damage the side of the tails. I have been looking at buying a dovetail chisel but the decent ones are pretty expensive and I’m not sure if a 1...

Knucklehead Club - 59 replies
I think it is safe to say that the intelligence level of most LJer’s on this site ranges from semi-intelligent to very intelligent (you place yourself wherever you feel comfortable). I also think it is safe to say all LJer’s realize that as they stand in front of the hunk of iron that they have just applied power to there is a point...

Let me start out by saying 2014 will be different, at least for me it will. Thusly, I changed my signature so you could better understand my meaning. 2014 can be whatever you want it to be. I hope yours is great. 1. There is only one thing in life that I feel we truly own and control and that is our life…our living, breathing existence...

that I am in the correct forum for this post. Anyway, I wonder what happened to JustJoe? Have not heard from him lately and he is a pretty prolific (abundant, copius, bountiful, fertile) poster. Is it something one of you guys said? Shame on the culprit (miscreant, wrongdoer, offender). You may also be wondering why I threw similar words (syn...

qa723, 1523, d836 - 22 replies
Not sure which one to buy. One is cheap, one is moderately priced and one is pretty expensive for its age. On the other hand if I multiply the cost of the qa723 by the age of the d836 the 1523 is looking like the value purchase. What would you guys do?
