Hanging a dehumidifier from the ceiling? - 12 replies

I’m setting up a 30×30 ( insulated except for two bay doors) shop and live 400 ft from a large body of water (Lake Lanier) in the Gainesville Georgia area. I have purchased a 70 pint Dehumidifer and separate condensate pump and the larger Jet air filtration unit AFS 2000. To save on floor space and to have less dust hampering the operation ...

Grizzly Jointers on backorder ? Another option ? - 2 replies

I’ve been checking the Grizzly site since Christmas and the 8” Helical Head jointers have been on perpetual backorder. I haven’t called the company yet ( I suppose that would be the first step but.. ) If they tell me it will be months before I can get a Grizzly then what other options should I consider. I get the impression that the other manufa...

Help !! Wood selection. - 2 replies

I’m going to start a “built in” project in the next week or so but I’m having trouble picking the wood species I would like to use. I’m remodeling my family room with V groove T&G pine on the walls and as a result my “Built in” would have the T&G pine as the back of the bookcase shelves. The upper bookcase case and shelves would...

First trip to the hardwood dealer? - 8 replies

Having the day off I decided to stop by a local hardwood dealer that is 20 min away. I’m looking to make a built in entertainment center and would like to make the face frame out of cherry. What I have envisioned in my mind is to purchased some wider flat sawn boards and rip the outer straight grain “riff?” For the Rails and the center cathedral...

Black Friday Sales? - 1 reply

Does anyone have the inside scoop on some great woodworking tool deals this holiday season. I’m particularly interested in a Bessey or Jet clamp Deal. I’ll probably be seeking a jointer as well.

I purchased a set of 6.99 Aldi chisels that Paul Sellers raved about several years ago. If anyone picks up a set of the 2017 chisels I would be curious as to how the stack up against the versions offered in years past.

What to do with broken Dayton 15" wood/ metal bandsaw? - 3 replies

6Y002E is the model. The gearbox is shot and I don’t want to try and make it a single speed dedicated cutting station. I would be interested in mounting the 1hp 115v 1720 Rpm induction motor to a bench and making a buffing station perhaps (ideas?). Is that plausible (given the speed) ? I do have some high wear items that are brand new to s...

I’m going back Monday to pick it up in my pickup and need some advice on the best way to transport. Verticle/Horozontal ? I would imagine at the very least I would want to brace the motor so it...

2003 20 inch Jet Bandsaw 2hp 230v 1 phase low hours. - 4 replies

Just getting into WW and saw this on CL looks to be in very good shape. I’m sure this is more than I need and is probably more of a “one trick pony” (resaw) and that I won’t be happy doing curves on this and I’ll more than likely need to upgrade the guides which bumps the price up and Jet is maybe not the best choic...

Wood/Metal vertical band saw - 3 replies

I purchased a Dayton 15” Wood/Metal BandSaw for 200.00 off Craigslist.  Model 6y002E I thought it sounded a little loud when I checked it out and after several months of use the gearbox did give out.The original seller “Grainger” says I can get the replacement parts for 350.00 to rebuild the gearbox.It’s a nice heavy duty...
