re: production curved laminate parts - 8 replies

Should I be looking at radio frequency or somethinglike silicone high temp heating blankets to c...

Most useless 18v cordless tool? - 20 replies

Just for fun. I’ve seen some silly looking stuff overthe years but haven’t tried many. Personally I haven’t been impressed with thecordless circular saws I’ve used but I wouldn’tcall them useless, just a weak substitute for a corded model. What’s the lamest 18v tool you’ve used?

Here's a cool bargain for a fine carpenter or installer... central California - 3 replies

I’m just sharing this stuff for fun. I like useful toolsand some of the most useful ones are alsohard to find, perhaps because they wereoften costly to manufacture and didn’t sellespecially well. I have one of these myself. The only parts I currently use are the mortising table (setup with a router) and the jointer/planer (setup ...

re: angry comments - 21 replies

Bringing a bad attitude to online forums doesn’tgo anywhere. It’s a marginally useful thing to do and itdoesn’t earn respect from online acquaintancesgenerally. More likely, it will make them wary ofinteraction. I get irritated just like anybody does – with situations,with other people. Helping people out here whoa...

What I like about LJ and what I don't like - 30 replies

Ok. I know a lot about woodworking and I know a fairbit about how the internet works, SEO and all that. After a recent spat with admins on another woodworkingforum I’ve done some thinking about what makesLumberjocks a progressive model for a woodworkingforum that others might do well to emulate. What I like: 1. a robust and acces...

It’s a rather versatile carpentry machine that cancrosscut cabinet panels using its sliding table feature and operates as an inverted miter saw and rip saw too. Bevels too. Very hard to find.

I was asked to ballpark this today. Everything in plastic laminate. The center of the console is a big glowing light table. Everything but the chairs, the big TV and the paint job on the floor. The guy didn’t sound too pleased when I told him the figure. I thought I was being pretty reasonable, but I’d like to know how you wo...

Shop-built format sliding table saw - 5 replies

I like sliding tables. I do have doubts as to whether this wooden format sliding table saw would hold up in a shopwhere more than one or two people were using it,but it’s an impressive build nonetheless, based arounda humble Gil-bilt home-made table saw kit.

Stability of teak and ipe? - 2 replies

I’ve been asked to bid a bunch of chairs in these woodsusing 1/2” x 1.5” x 30” slats… about 18 per chair. Now I think teak is silly expensive so I’d want to turnas little into sawdust as possible so I’m thinking I canrip 30” long x 1.75” 5/4 blanks, then resaw on the bandsaw. Now my que...
