Broken Brass collar on my Sorby turning tools! - 14 replies

Anybody need a woodworking job? - 6 replies

Hi all, Just throwing a line out there for anybody in the New York City area who could help out my sister-in-law with a project.

Hi all, So a few weeks ago, I bought a Delta 14-650 (type 1) hollow chisel mortiser for $50 on craigslist. Actually, I was buying a lathe and the guy asked if I needed a mortiser. I threw $50 out there, and he took it. Came with all different size chisels, so I was pumped. There were three chuck keys hanging off the thing, so I assumed on...

Band Saw Advice - 4 replies

Hi everyone. Here’s the deal. Before I got seriously into woodworking, I bought a table saw for DIY repairs. It’s the crappy Ryobi one you can get for like 80 or 100 bucks. The top is aluminum (warped like crazy), can’t fit any decent insert so therefore can’t saw anything thinner than about 3/4, fence sucks, etc. ...
