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...

Somebody near cape cod should totally grab this... - 12 replies
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. https://capecod.craigslist.org/tls/4599018511.html

Name the price for this set - 18 replies
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. http://woodgears.ca/reader/hector/format.html

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...

Saw is a Tannewitz JS bought pretty cheap at auction. Fortunately the motorappears to have been reconditioned, perhaps rewound in the last 30 years or so. Saw is bombproof but missing some parts that will be impossible to find,so I’ll have to make replacements. Machine is about 2000lb., though I’ve removed the sliding table parts...

Old chisels - 7 replies
I wanted a bevel edge chisel in the 35mm range for veneer workso I bought a vintage one on ebay for $10 shipped. Great deal really. I reckoned the steel might be good. I’ll say this: I do believe it’s a good chisel but I spent a crazyamount of time flattening its back. Several hours… andI have a Makita wet grinder. I d...

How not to get pissed off at other people on forums. - 25 replies
Don’t read the off-topic stuff. That’s where you see the political venting or whatever. I never get mad at anybody here. Yet I often see interestingpeople leave for reasons that baffle me…. as I’ve rarelyeven glanced at the threads that upset these individuals. Don’t get me wrong, I think some posters are a...
