Lee Valley purchases

11-22-2008 03:18 AM by GMoney | 5 comments »

I called the contact us number on Lee Valley’s website to ask about any promotions such as free shipping. Immediately I was told free shipping was available now and would I like to place an order? I had been watching the website to see if that or any other promotion would be offered now near the hoildays. Just goes to show that it pays to ask and to have your order ready to go. Mine is on it’s way freight-free! I posted here to reach other lumberjocks who may want the same thin...

The Tool Gathering Odessy #11: Where Was THIS When I Needed It?

11-21-2008 10:25 PM by Tomcat1066 | 5 comments »

Some time back, I was finally able to pick up a Disston dovetail saw. If I remember correctly, these are rare animals out in the wild to some extent, and I paid more than I really wanted to. Again, this was a while back so I may be remembering this wrong. I do remember it being a pain in the butt trying to snag one off eBay. This difficulty of finding decent vintage saws at reasonable prices, coupled with the cost of new dovetail saws that are worth a flip, have been one of the driving ...

"New" Table Saw #4: Zero Clearance Insert

11-21-2008 05:50 AM by Jon Parker | 2 comments »

Kind of slow going here as I design the Table Saw cabinet just the way I want it. I’ve been trying to find a zero clearance insert for the table saw, but have been unsuccessful since it’s so old and Craftsman has since changed their inserts. I finally found one online, but it was $20 + shipping and handling. I remember seeing an episode of New Yankee Workshop (one of my favorites) that showed making a zero clearance insert from wood and a flush router bit. So instead I dro...

Take A Picture, It Might Last Longer

11-21-2008 05:01 AM by trifern | 10 comments »

This is the piece I turned this evening. It is some very green maple. By the time I was finishing it up, it started getting hairline cracks all over it. This is one of the risks you take turning green wood. I decided to take a picture of it. After all it might last longer. I ran it under cool tap water to rehydrate it and placed it in a brown paper bag to finish drying. I’ll keep my fingers crossed. I hope it works out, I kind of like the shape.
