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).

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. ...

Tablesaw help - Direct Drive Vs. Belt Drive - 6 replies

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?) - 6 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...
