Google and Lumberjocks..............I thank you! - 3 replies
I have just googled the term “apple bird feeder” to see what kind of designs are out there. The first image I clicked on (not the first image available, but the first that stood out for me) was from one of our own lumberjocks, Bradford. I use google images a lot to check out what is available, and sometimes for ideas. Time and tim...

I bought a second hand, but still boxed and unused, DeWalt 876 bandsaw back in October. With work and general life busyness I’ve only now got round to setting it up. Set up was great, and surprisingly straight forward. I did the usual test cuts of random wavey lines with great new tool enthusiasm! All was good! Then, I did a rip cut usi...

Anyone able to shed light on a make for this? - 8 replies
Hi fellow LJ’s,I was given this old scroll saw recently and wondered if anyone knew of a branded version that I could trace a manual for. I realise that it is a generic saw with possibly many brands, but any help would be great. I’ve tried the supplier plate, but there is no record of this company anymore. Here is a link to more ...

Dewalt 876 Bandsaw, Any Comments? - 5 replies
Hi Guys and Girls, I have been looking for a bandsaw for a while, and came across this one in my local gumtree. I have read mixed reviews online regarding it, and wondered if any one had one or knew anything about it? From what I read a bandsaw is only as good as the setup, and the more time you spend accurately setting it, the better it is a...

Hi guys and girls. I’ve not been around here for a while, and I’ve missed it! I wonder if you can help. I made a set of storm doors at the end of last year. They are oak frames with a horizontal oak lining board fixed to the face of the frame. Both frame and linings are made from 3/4” timber. I suspect this was my first mist...

Curved desk front---HELP!! - 5 replies
Hi guys, I haven’t been here for a while. New baby and a sudden upsurge in customers has taken precedence unfortunately. Anyways, I have won a contract to fit out a small office with three bookcases and a desk. This is great for me because it is exactly the type of work I want to be involved with. Unfortunately the client only has a bud...

Does anyone know this company/router cutter? - 3 replies
Hi fellow Jocks, Does anyone have any experience of these router cutters, or know who makes them? This seems a good deal to me, even with shipping to UK. My experience tells me that if something seems too good to be true, it usually is! Just thought I’d ask before buying. The blurb says that this comes off the same production line as ma...

Beading tool, has any one made one at home? - 6 replies
Hey fellow LJs, I am currently trying to replicate part of an old front door for a customer. The bottom edge has some rot in it, and rather than make a complete new door I want to replace the bottom style. The problem is that there is a small bead feature running up one side, at about 4” from the edge. I need to replicate this and thought ...
