Wow, thanks!
I used to help my dad refinish antique furniture, though I have very little actual experience.
I am watching a lot of tutorials on youtube and have heard of this website more than once, figured it was worth checking out. after looking around a bit, I am excited to get involved!
thank you very much to both of you for the welcome, and I hope to get started soon!

Thanks!
I am hoping to start my first project today. I have loads of ideas, but right now I am kind of stumped trying to think of something to build with the materials I have available. I don’t have a bandsaw just yet, and much of the wood I have I would like to re-saw to get more out of it. I have a box full of really nice very hard wood scraps that could easily make some beautiful boxes, but all of it would need re-sawed.
I guess I am being impatient to get started right now, but I have been gathering tools and supplies for quite a while and really want to use them for something…
right now I am really enjoying looking through photos on here for ideas that I might be able to start this afternoon :)

well, day one has been cut short…
I was checking out the craftsman router I have, and it turns out it works (errrr, it did anyway)
I made some cuts with it, just getting a feel for it. Then I wanted to change the bit…
this thing has sat un-used for the last 12 years or so, and had a bit in it. when I went to change the bit, I saw the collet was rusted. I used a bit of penetrating fluid, and was trying to gently work the collet loose, when ‘snap’
the mechanism that locks the shaft in place seems to have broken. I can’t unlock the shaft, and I still can’t seem to get the bit loose. Not much I know of to fix it at this point. I tried to take the thing apart, but the build it to be left alone it seems. I can’t get into the motor housing to see how bad the damage is. I am sure the motor is good, and if I could fix the shaft lock, I would be back in business.
A router has been pretty central to most of the things I have wanted to build, and I don’t have money to even buy a used one. I will keep messing with it, and see if I can make it work, but if I can’t change the bit, there really isn’t much point.
I guess I am off to check ebay for something I can afford to replace it.

Welcome Neight. You have found the right place for woodworking. A great group of people willing to help. Looking forward to see your projects and comments. Work safe in the shop and don’t forget to use pushsticks.
As for your router problem, post your problem in the ‘Forums’ section (at top of this page). I am sure someone will respond.

Thanks for the welcome and the tip HallTree!
I have already posted in the forum and had several responses. I am very impressed with this website, I have never had a forum question answered so quickly or thoroughly!
I have lots of good push sticks around, and always try and work safe. I like my fingers and will keep them as long as I can :)
