SCMI Minimax: What's the going rate? - 12 replies
So, I am possibly going to purchase a used SC3 with a 3HP motor and all the basic accessories. This saw is about 2 decades old, but has pretty minimal use. What do you think it’s worth? I know I’m not showing pics, but honestly it looks like it’s been used fairly lightly. It could be mistaken as being only 1 or 2 years ol...

Just wondering: SawStop opinions wanted - 33 replies
First, if this this is not the right section, let me know. I see a lot of discussion about SawStop on here. Is SawStop a great saw and lust-worthy for being a great saw or do people just want and praise it because of its special feature (the ability to stop a sawblade cold before major injury)? In other words, if SawStop did not have that...

Who can identify this? - 15 replies
... and if you can, name it. As usual, I don’t have any of the leaves but I do have a freshly cut piece. This was a blow down and the city is willing to let me haul some of it away. The trunk is about 24-30 inches in diameter and it was about 30-45 feet tall. The wood was mainly white with a dark brown heart. It’s in central MS...

Makita 1806B 6-3/4" Power Planer - Blades? - 6 replies
As the owner of this monster power planer, I’m faced with a problem… where to source a carbide knife set for this beast? I tried Global tooling, but they didn’t have anything for me. Anyone have any suggestions? Also, how do you know if the tools you’re using are not normal? They come in wooden crates:

What to expect: Western Red Cedar fence - 9 replies
So, I’ve decided to use Western red cedar for my fence (horizontal slat fence with main posts at 10’ and supplemental posts at 5’ between the 10’s… midpoint). I do have a question though. Since the Western red cedar I’m using is quoted as being green, should I be expected any loss in length for the boards ...

Stanley #2C plane - Rare/Authentic? Value? - 15 replies
I’ve been on a tear lately finding planes. I think it’s their shape and construction that lures me in. Anyways, I came across this Stanley 2C made in England. The handle and tote concern me (no finish on it). Is that right? Also, is this really rare and what would you pay for such a plane? Thanks. You guys have helped me lo...

Another fence building project - 2 replies
Well, I am stuck. I’m building a fence and have put up some treated pine posts and I’m now deciding on what wood to use to finish the fence out. It’s going to be a horizontal slat fence with 4×4 mains at 10’ with 2×4 helpers at the 5’ marks between the two 4×4’s. So, here are my choices: Pine,...

How Much? Stanley #5 and Hibernia Sheffield planes - 10 replies
Okay, I know the Stanleys have been discussed often, but I’m new to the appreciation of and also determining the value of older hand tools. I know I’m not including a bottom shot or one of the blade, but I remember them to be in very good condition. So, how much would you say this is worth (Stanley #5): Also, I don...

Powermatic jointer... how much? - 4 replies
All right everyone. I’m thinking of buying this jointer: No, I don’t know much about it other than it runs and it’s a Powermatic. Any one have any clue on what a reasonable price is if it’s in good, running condition? I know I’m not much help on this, but in this area usually the old green ones run for abo...

Bandsaws - Which one? Shop Fox or Rikon - 20 replies
Okay, first off, I’m a new member; but definitely not a new follower. I’ve learned some great things from this site over the years. Second, I am looking at buying a bandsaw. Up until yesterday, I was looking at either a Rikon 10-325 (14”) or 10-345 (18”). I was leaning a lot towards the 10-325 since it is a lower co...
