The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #3: New Table Saw

02-11-2010 12:45 AM by captkerk | 10 comments »

Any good workshop redo includes new tools and I finally replaced my old Craftsman bench-top saw with a Ridgid R4511. I got it for the clearance price of $499, but then three days later it dropped in price to $299. I was able to get Home Depot to honor the new lower price and I came away with a brand new saw for an almost criminally low price. The assembly was a bit time consuming, but the other lumberjocks’ reviews helped with some of the common issues. I was quite annoyed to ...

A Very Special Project

02-11-2010 12:23 AM by roughcut | 5 comments »

Good afternoon everyone. Thank you all for the warm welcome to Lumberjocks. I’m off to a slow start as far as getting my profile set up, but shortly I will be putting on some pictures of my almost completed workshop. I’m am relatively new to woodworking, but I have taken several woodworking classes in Manchester and one in New London (both in Connecticut). If all goes well I am planning on retiring in about 3 years and look forward to enjoying many more in my new shop building furniture for m...

A Flag Display Box #4: Musings...

02-10-2010 11:58 PM by littlecope | 6 comments »

There is finally a little progress to report on this! I had cut the third joint in the same way as the second last week and rough fit them together.However, the bottoms of these needed to be “tuned in” so they’d fit flush. So that’s what I’ve been doing, some here at the apartment, some at my Parent’s house where they still have my Grandfather’s small woodworking bench with vise. Dad, too, used this when he was young so this is seeing third generation...

TS comparison, such as it is...

02-10-2010 10:53 PM by tennjock59 | 10 comments »

Hey, guys and gals. I have a TS comparison question to pose to y’all. I’ve seen a lot of good reviews on this site for the Ridgid R4511, if you can find it. Now I’d like to know which, if you had your ‘druthers, would you choose between the Ridgid and the Grizzly G1023Z (price not withstanding). I know if I can find the R4511 the price will be better, but Grizzly has the G1023Z on sale right now for $795. So, please, if you would, help to steer me in the right di...

Are these the type of people we want here

02-10-2010 05:20 PM by shack | 41 comments »

I was readin the forums and stumbled accross this you kid asking for advice. as I read his post I was appaled at some of the responses he got from grown men . I have been on this site for a long time and I have never seen this behavior. This site is in my opinion the BEST WOODWORKING SITE ON THE INTERNET. But if we allow this type of behavior to continue it will go down hill fast. I will say this if I owned this site I would ban the ones that posted s...

Burst Pipe!!

02-10-2010 05:17 PM by Sivers | 10 comments »

Arriving home from vacation it appears that we had a pipe burst in the basement. Of course everything flooded and knocked out the furnace. Luckily we had someone in to check on our cats so they had someone pump the water out before we got back. So we get to find out why we’ve been paying for home insurance all these years. It took a few days to get everything back under control. We’ve now got running water and a new furnace. Looking at it now, the basement is cleaner than it ev...

Workshop Build #3: Laying infloor piping

02-10-2010 04:29 PM by ~Julie~ | 6 comments »

In June 2008 it was time to start getting the in-floor piping and the electricity hook-ups into the foundation before the cement could be poured. The wood stove that will heat the new workshop as well as our house will be placed in between the two buildings. It will sit at the side of the driveway approximately 50 feet north of the house and 75 feet south of the workshop. Since our hookups will need to be at the farthest side of the house, a trench needs to be dug about 75-100 feet each ...
