My Day at Grizzly

10-18-2009 03:28 AM by bunkie | 11 comments »

Last weekend I made the 120 mile journey to Grizzly’s Pennsylvania showroom. I wanted to see their tablesaws first-hand. With the promise of an hour’s unemcumbered shopping at the Lycoming Mall, my wife bravely kept me company. I was exceptionally impressed with the G0690 and G0691 saws. The G0691 had free shipping and they were offering a discount on the pickup price. Normally $1350, it was $1195. The G0690 was not on sale. We had driven out there in our sedan, so I had no imm...

Sueezed in some shop time today! Yay me! Here are a few shots of the dry fit and glue up on the case. Even had time to mount the face to a backer board so I had to take a peak.

Rockler 24" Straight Edge

10-17-2009 10:11 PM by Don | 5 comments »

Anyone own on of these? I was going to buy the Woodpecker 24” steel straight edge, but Rockler’s is 1/16” thicker, weighs more, costs less and I have a free shipping coupon. Total savings would be about $15.00.

Hello to y'all

10-17-2009 05:21 PM by nailbanger2 | 19 comments »

I just finished signing in ( I’ve been lurking for about a month) and I thought it would be a good idea to say hello. I’m John Abraham, and I’ve been a professional carpenter/ painter/ plasterer/ concrete mason since leaving the USAF in 1982. After seeing some of the projects on here, I find I have wasted these last 20+ years. Not really, but my chapeau is definately doffed to quite a few of you jocks! I currently run my own business remodelling homes or whatever other pr...

Got an excuse to buy a Riser Block..

10-17-2009 05:10 PM by Rick Boyett | 8 comments »

A couple of months ago, I bought this bandsaw off Craigslist. It’s a great little Grizzly BS. A couple of weeks ago I bought about 50 bd ft of Black Walnut from a fella at First Monday Trade Days in Canton, TX for only $2.00 a bd ft. (killer deal). I think I forgot how big the opening is for my BS. Looks like I’ll be buying a riser block and new BS blades now. I’m going to use this lumber to build a baby crib..

Look at that! #2: I was supposed to pick up my Delta bandsaw today but that's not gonna happen

10-17-2009 03:12 PM by Bothus | 5 comments »

So yesterday I called the guy I bought the bandsaw from to confirm the time for me to pick it up today. It’s about a 3 hour round trip for me. He answered the phone and I asked the question and I hear a long pause like he forgot I was coming… Turns out he is going to deliver it at 8AM this morning because he’s coming out here to pick up some other tool. Cool. Hey maybe I can take the bandsaw to work so I work on it after hours? Nah, I’d feel like I was cheatin...

The platform is a four leg design. The legs are 6 1/2” high with a 4 1/2” runner in between them. The legs are attached permanently to the footboard with 3 dowels and 2 pocket screws. The side rail runner is connected to the legs by a draw bolt and a half moon type connector. Two of these type of connectors in each corner along with a single dowel. Even though this is a full size the platform is 70” overall wide. There will be bookcases that will sit on the platform and ru...

Working on the case

10-17-2009 01:48 PM by Tim Dahn | 5 comments »

Last night I dimensioned the sides, top and bottom for the case and chopped out some through dovetails. Hope to get some time today to dry fit the case and maybe glue it up.
