Could be useful - 7 replies

Penetrating epoxy. In the video, they are restoring a weather checked dinghy seat but, it would work as well on new wood that may be exposed to the weather. And, I’m wondering if it could be used on a bar or counter top. Certainly useful on any project where you’d want a super durable finish.

A precision fence for my Shopsmith - 11 replies

I know that most people here on LJs are not Shopsmith users, but some one might get an idea for another application. Besides, I wanted to show off my little jig. I’m sorta proud of it.

Two blades???? And, it’s missing a fence. Any thoughts about where one could find a fence for it? Thanks in advance for...

Summit HVLP System First Use Impressions - 17 replies

I already had a gravity fed gun I used with my 7 hp, 80 gallon compressor. It was sort of a hassle to get 10 lb of pressure consistently and the air hose weight and stiffness inhibited movement for spraying insides of projects. That’s why I jumped on the sale Peachtree had on this no frills complete system. Out of the box, it was ready ...

I Box Review - 7 replies

Got to use the new I Box yesterday. It only took me 3 hours to set it up correctly. The joys of a Shopsmith! And, the agony of being as mechanically inclined as an aardvark. The set up and use CD that accompanies the I Box was/is extremely helpful. The fit and finish of all the parts is excellent. No surprises there. Incra tools have always b...

May I get a little help from you computer guys, please. - 8 replies

Hope someone who understands these infernal machines can advise me. It’s probably a simple fix. I’m just so very inept, though. Within the last couple of days, I’ve lost the automatic spell check. It used to underline misspelled words with a squiggly red line and right clicking on it would bring down alternatives. Now, that&...
