Laguna 20” helical planer question

05-12-2018 06:13 PM by dqcustom | 0 comments »

Hello!I’m wondering if some of you fellow LJ could give me some advice on a new planer. I have a Dewalt DW735 and am in need of a 15” or 20” with more power. I came across a used MPLAN2010-0130, Laguna Tools 20” Planer w/Shear TecII. 4 PostLagunafor $2,500 (new 4,000) Is this a good one to have if anyone has experience with it? Is there something else I should and could consider for this price tag? I was going to buy a new 20” HH jet for $3,500. Or an older machine most likely wi...

My Journey #3: Still organizing

05-11-2018 11:52 PM by TexasUnicorne | 1 comment »

So, in between running kids (or are they running me?), totaling 2 vehicles and subsequently doing the mad dash to replace each in turn, I’ve managed to somehow acquire a plethora of reclaimed wood in various states / condition. I also decided somewhere along the way that I desperately want to rearrange the entire workshoo. I began a couple of days ago with shuffling everything inside the shop around to make room for the lumber storage rack that I found. I then managed to get most of the...

Shop stuff #123: A Cute Sander Jig

05-11-2018 09:17 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have been meaning to make this for quite a while now. I saw a video from Chris Cute that reminded me to get it done. I have use for it coming up and it ought to come in handy. I had fun putting this together. Not much measuring involved and made from left overs. I just found what fit and put it together. The plan has been in my head for a while. I wanted something that was sturdy, yet easy to remove the sander from it. The ability to clamp it to the bench was thought of as I built ...

Funnies #10: Staining timber was never so exciting

05-11-2018 08:37 AM by robscastle | 8 comments »

I was looking for staining videos for my latest project and I found what looks like some sort of tutorial series by this lady who I can only remember as Hooter Bird. I guess its getting a reasonable amount of attention, cannot remember the stain product but some other attribute images have remained. I am not sure if Home help would be of assistance, as one could end up tripping on their tongue, or something else more embarassing!! I wonder if there is a sanding one? I am sure that&...

Joinery Bench #21: Drawbore pins made, spacer blocks installed, example of bad offset measurement, base complete

05-11-2018 04:21 AM by Holbs | 2 comments »

With the use of my Lie-Nelson dowel plate, I hammered out 24 drawbore pins of 3 1/2” long at 3/8” round with 4 7” long ones for pinning dovetail corners. Tried the riving method as you can see with the left over waste. ———————Installed 2 spacers in the mortise I made a error on. With tenon installed, now a nice tight fit. ——————And this is what happens when you try different measurements w...

Toy Construction #202: Excavator using Dutchy"s new plans #1

05-10-2018 07:02 PM by htl | 18 comments »

Down loader Dutchys new plans and after a study and I mean a study of the plans it’s full steam ahead.I started on the tracks as this is what I’m the most interested in.And kinda like the Reading train there’s a lot a small parts but as I have found out these little parts really add to the look even if they’re in the back and you would think their not of much use.So to start with I cut out around 200 parts for the tracks and then had to drill two holes in each one, jus...

Restoration of radial arm saw - Montogomery Wards TCP 2610E

05-10-2018 03:58 AM by KTNC | 3 comments »

4/17/2018 Purchased for $20 – craigslist I already have one fully functional Craftsman radial arm saw and a DeWalt that I plan to restore later. Why buy this Montgomery Wards saw? I’ve been wanting one ever since I found out it has an extra deep cut depth and it has a 20,000 RPM spindle. I brought it home in the Subaru Outback. I had to remove the saw from the stand and disassemble the stand to get it to fit. The seller helped me get it into the car. It’s mis...
