Hello Jocks. I would like to share my crazy idea with you and get your input. I bought an old Craftsman lathe model 103.23070 from a friend at work and have yet to even set it up. It came with a 1/2 hp ac motor with a four step pully. On Craigslist I’m finding cheap electric chainsaws with like 3.5 hp motors. Any problems with adapting this motor to my lathe and having a single pully with variable speeds running on ac power? I’m not familiar with electric chainsaws and wondering if maybe they only have a single speed and are not variable. Thanks, Ripp

Hello Jocks, new project in the thought stage. Thinking of making paintable raised panel doors for a kitchen. I want to copy the look of my orange big box store oak doors (their panels are 1/2” thick oak). My new doors will have 3/4” poplar rails and stiles and a 1/2” thick MDF panel. Upon measuring my oak doors I found some subtle unconventional differences. I’ll attach an image of the oak door measurements showing my poplar and MDF

. As you can see the panel face is 1/16” shy of the frame. This is imperceptible to the eye and they look great. Any thoughts as to this construction? Maybe shadow lines or just money saving. Should I just set up to make flush frame and panel? Since 5/8” MDF is not readily available and I think 3/4” is too heavy I am going with 1/2”. Barring a 4 year old ramming his Tonka Truck into my base cabinet doors, do you think this panel will be sufficient? My next question regards my choice of cutting bits. I am thinking of going with the Harbor Junk 3 piece raised panel door making kit. I only have to make about a dozen doors and am wondering if anyone has used these cutters and their outcome. Maybe spend the extra $70.00 and get a good set. Any recommendations would be appreciated. I anxiously await. Thank you, Ripp
