Need conveyor belt - Kuster Woodworking Ultra Sand 36" dual head thickness sander - 9 replies

Hi everyone, I recently acquired a Kuster Woodworking Ultra Sand 36” dual head thickness sander. This company has been out of business for quite awhile, I think since the late 80’s. It is a solid machine but the feed conveyor belt had broke on it with the previous owner and he was unable to find a replacement so he was just manual...

If anyone has any info about any saw/lumber mills in or nearby ND that would be great. Just moved back, near the Devils Lake area. West Minnesota or southern Manitoba would be doable too. Any info is greatly appreciated! Thanks!

AR-15 Speed loader - 3 replies

I saw this on Facebook today. Looks very handy if you are going to reload several clips at home, but maybe not the best for field operation (although maybe good for a prairie dog setup in the field). For those of you the have reloaded these clips before it can be taxing on your fingers. This seems much easier to just lay the ammunition out and h...

Lumber ID - 18 replies

Can anyone help Monte and I ID these logs. We picked them up from a lady’s yard in Sioux Falls, SD yesterday. Unfortunately I don’t think that either myself or Monte actually took a picture of the tree that it cam from. It was a big tree and most of it was still standing for the time being. We milled a decent amount of wood yesterday...

For Sale - Stanley No 97 gauge, No 95 butt gauge, and No 4 Trammel - 1 reply

Hello fellow LJ’s, I want an older Stanley or similar wheel marking gauge and I stumbled across this lot, but I don’t need the butt gauge or trammel point (and vaguely know what they are used for). From the prices that I’ve seen it seems reasonable. I figured I’d throw it on here in case anyone is looking for something...

Sawmill locations - 3 replies

As I started more serious woodworking not so long ago, one of my biggest struggles as an amateur was to find good, cheaper than box store, hardwood (local sawmills). So lets post local (to you) sawmills here to make it easier for everyone and maybe we will discover some new ones along the way. Lets try and work with a format. STATECITY/...

Anybody ever saw one of these before? (Collapsible plant stand) - 5 replies

My aunt sent me pictures of this, she says it’s a plant holder of hers. I have not seen it in person, just wanted to share it with everyone as I think that it is fairly unique, at least I’ve never saw one (not that I’m an expert of any sort). I’m not sure if it’s from a single piece but it would be very impressive. ...

I am in the market for a good used TS with a bigger cast iron top. Can someone please give me their opinions on direct drive vs. belt drive tablesaws? The only thing that I’ve heard is that belt driven is quieter (I have a cheap small direct drive, sounds like a jet). Is one recommended over the other? Thanks for helping!

Rockwell/Delta 6" Jointer (1968?) - 9 replies

Just bought my first Jointer. It is a Rockwell/Delta 37-220 6” jointer in need of some elbow grease. The Serial number is EC8977 which I believe is from about 1968. Seems as if everything works, blades look decent, lots of rust on the bed, enclosed base, missing back cover, missing out table lock knob, rust. From my first take with a stand...
