Finishing MDF edges - 14 replies

I give up. Previously, someone else posted a forum topic about some round plastic containers that screwed together which looked perfect for storing sanding disks in. I saved the topic on a computer that has since decided it no longer wants to fire up. I have searched Lumberjocks, the internet, under my pillow, etc. and can not find the forum ...

Varying grades of MDF? - 15 replies
Are there differing grades of MDF? I had some leftover MDF from a project several years back and it was significantly different than another piece of MDF from a different project. I don’t recall where I purchased either piece from, since I moved a lot during the time period of those previous projects. One of the pieces appeared to have ...

Attention Newbies, Lurkers, etc.! - 42 replies
After seeing several posts from “Newbies”, I usually check to see where they are located. Much to my dismay, frequently this information is left blank for whatever reason.

Scary Sharp - 4 replies

I purchased my original end mill bits from Magnate and was fairly satisfied with the results once I narrowed down the feed rate and spindle speed for each different size. Along the way, those bits have hit the stray screws,, etc. in the learning process and I felt I nee...

FDA approved wood species for food contact - 4 replies
I just received my latest e-mail blast from Cook Woods. In the e-mail there was a curious statement about the wood species being offered: “Approved by the FDA for food containers, cottonwood works well for bowls or other turned articles.” I have no reason not to believe this statement, but it did make me curious what other wood sp...

I have been researching my alternatives to a wider unit. Back in college (20+ years ago) I had access to a 24” wide belt sander. When it worked it work...

Being relatively new to the LJ site, could anyone advise me how to search LJ’s for members by their geographical location, i.e. Texas, etc.? Just typing in the geographical location returns a lot of results that aren’t as specific as I would hope for. In the alternative, if this search function is not available, how would one go ab...
