Trouble with a Jet JJP-8BT Jointer/Planer - 7 replies
So life has eased up on me enough to let me get back to makin’ sawdust, and I’m trying to get everything tuned up and ready to go.

How much is too much? - 7 replies
I remember reading somewhere that depending on the type of wood you’re working in sanding past a certain grit is generally wasted effort. Well I’ve got a few projects in mind for the basement & garage using “2 by x” generic ‘whitewood’ lumber and I want to sand and stain it to look nice but I’m not ...

While perusing the Grizzly site I came across the 8.5” 1/2hp H0625 and 13”, 3/4hp H0626 oscillating drill presses. I was wondering if any LJs have any experience with either of these lil’ guys? I like the oscillating feature for sanding (I don’t think I’d have enough use for a spindle sander to justify buying a s...

I spotted this at Home Depot going for $100, and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with it. Its not a powerhouse, its a 3 gal, 135psi model. But really I just want something that can drive some brads and pins and blow dust off tools, and this looks like it’ll fit the bill, also at a hundred bucks cheaper than some of the other...

You can then create a variety of jigs on plates that screw onto the saddle face, or attach stops/clamps/whatchamacallits directly to the saddle. I thought it was a really neat ide...
