Time for a change - 62 replies
My wife and I have decided that we have had enough of California. The state is finally running people out and we will be running as well. The cost of living here is getting to the point for us that we can no longer make ends meet with a good 6 figure income. Gas is ridiculous, property taxes are increasing, sales tax has increased locally and th...

Early 60's Delta 1460 lathe for sale.....SOLD - 3 replies
Due to the economy being what it is I am forced to sell a few items. Being that I do not really have any experience with turning and do not have the time to learn right now I thought I would sell that lathe and possibly upgrade at a later time. Up for your consideration is a fully restored Delta 1460 12” x 36” lathe. The machine w...

I have decided to sell my Crescent 8” jointer. It is dated from 1925-1928 and appears to be all original. All of the handwheels turn freely and all adjustments work well.

Woodcraft or Rockler? - 41 replies
I was wondering where the majority of the LJ’s purchase their supplies, tools, finishes etc? I am not going to ask for internet purchases, just in-store. Do you prefer Woodcraft or Rockler? What is the major deciding factor on where you make that purchase? Location and or proximity to home/work? Why do you prefer one over the othe...

Yesterday I updated my blog on the Oliver and attempted to add a few pics. But to no avail. I have inserted pics in the past from both my hard drive as well as photobucket. I attempted from photobucket and they will not show. Is photobucket no longer supported on LJ’s?
