Dissipating static shock from clear plastic DC run inquiry - 14 replies

I know the PVC grounding topic has been beaten to death, revived, and beaten to death again, but this is not one of them…I hope. I have some 2-1/2” clear plastic pipes (designed for dust collection) that I will be using to get to my workbench for easy sanding and cleanup(I’ll post a setup later on). The Plastic pipe run is 9...

Local Woodworking business Highlights - Gleman & Sons - 0 replies

I thought this was a pretty good insight into a local, family run woodworking business that I often shop when possible. Great group of folks with a good diverse inventory of lumber and slabs. My shop is truly nearing an organized state surrounding my new cabinet saw, so I may finally use their beautiful white oak slab I bought to make a Greene...

Suggestions on what to do with an empty tool stand - 6 replies

Good Evening LJ’s, I’m looking for suggestions on what I could possibly do with this stand. I’ve been reorganizing my shop and believe I should get rid of this because it takes up so much space. Unlike the picture, it’s not in a rectangular shape. It’s actually a trapezoidal shape that my iPhone refuses to ...

Craftsman Made in the USA Screwdrivers in 2018?! - 7 replies

Maybe they still do this, but I don’t recall seeing anything “Made in the USA” on any Craftsman tools in a long time. I thought all of them moved overseas. I just bought these screwdriver set from Ace Hardware, brand new, and all of them says Made In the USA. They look and feel like the ones my father use to have in his mech...

There are so many out there and the one I like the most, in terms of aesthetics, is the Woodcraft one.

I remember seeing this a few years back, but it’s always fun to see this in action every now and then. Who needs files and chisels when you have a drill bit that can do it all. Even a hexagonal shape apparently.

Garage Wall/Floor Leak? - 6 replies

Attic Insulation: DIY or Pay? - 19 replies

Hello All, I’ve tried looking for an answer on this in many places. It seems like it would be an easy answer, but I have some concerns. Would you do your own Attic Insulation using a blower rental or pay to have someone else do it? I’m all for doing it on my own, but my 1st concern is that it would take a lot of work to cre...

Anyone tried Z-Wave Receptacle for remote Dust Collection? - 9 replies

Good Evening fellow LJ’s, I was curious if anyone has tried using the Z-Wave Wireless receptacle for their Dust Collection needs?

Suction Loss at and through Blast Gates? - 19 replies

Good Evening LJ’s, I was finalizing my dust collection and noticed one part of my table saw collection to not have as much suction as i thought it should, so I started to check for suction loss and air gaps. I know some (if not all) of the 90 / 45 degree elbows have some loss, so I’ll be sealing those up, BUT when I open up my ...

Good Afternoon Fellow LJ’s, I am nearly complete in installing my dust collection duct work, hoses, pipes, connectors, and filter.

Good Evening Everyone, I would like to request some opinions about my pending dust collection duct install setup. I think this will work fine, but it doesn’t hurt to get second opinions.

Chisel Starter Set - Dewalt or hone old ones? - 18 replies

Hey Fellow LJ’s, I’m in the market for a very basic starter Chisel set. I would prefer to buy locally, which means the big box stores for me. I saw some DeWalt 4-PC chisel set at HD for $30. The steel is made in Sheffield, England and was wondering if this would suffice as I hone in, pun intended, my skills. I currently ha...

Miter Saws vs Crosscut Sled 2015 - 13 replies

Hello fellow LJ’s, I’ve been debating for the past 2 weeks about upgrading my miter saw to a SCMS (sliding compound miter saw) and was JUST about to pull the trigger when I realized that a crosscut sled probably performs better for wider stock than the SCMS.
