Okie dokie I got some more pallets and I want to start breaking them down to do things with them. Obviously I can’t run them thru my planer without getting the nails out but thats where my problems begin. When I did my chicken coop I ended up giving up on using the pallets because I just couldn’t get them apart without lots of work and most of the time breaking the boards in the process. It seems the nails holding pallets together actually hold very well LOL. I’m thinking...
I finally recieved most of the needed parts for restoring the ancient Jet Bandsaw I picked up. I found a fantastic guy on eBay who was a wealth of knowledge and provides amazing service to his customers. His eBay ID is machacc and I would highly recommend him if you are looking for Machinery Parts, Tool Accessories, Router Bits, or Incra products. I don’t know much about him other than he was very helpful when I inquired about different parts, he sells at a competitive price, and ships ...

I went to the local Woodcraft store tonight to look at the Delta 15” planer. The salesman there explained that the General machine is actually a better planer and that while they did not know who but they did know that Black and Decker is selling the Delta Porter Cable line. I came home and while it took some work I did find that it is indeed true! They are being sold to a Taiwanese company called TOTY.Before going into the store I was pretty much locked down on getting the Delta, but n...
I decided I wanted a fixed base router to use with my dovetail jig. After some research I decided that the Hitachi M12VC was the one I wanted. New ones were available on e-bay from $99 to $203. I bought the $99 one with free shipping. Today I went to Lowe’s to pick up some sandpaper. There I saw the same router on sale for $89. Good grief.
My first plan was to get the inlay glued in, coat the inlay with shellac (as Norm did on his Nest of Tables), and hope for the best. However, I followed some other decisions, and I’m not sure I am happy. The new plan was to use blue tape in the groove to protect glue surfaces, but not put the inlay in until after the table top had the full stain recipe applied. What I hadn’t expected was the difficulty of getting the gel stain even near the tape, and in attempting to do so mean...
In one of my earlier posts I showed what I referred to as “the poor man’s dowel plate”. Unfortunately it didn’t work as I had hoped. Using the saw blade was fine for one, maybe two accurately sized dowels. After that they became slightly larger and rougher. In that post I mentioned that my friend had ordered the dowel plate from Lie-Nielsen but it wasn’t scheduled for shipping for a couple of weeks. As I took a lunch break yesterday and pondered how the heck...
I’m looking into subscribing to a or several wood working magazines and was wondering what any of you guys recommend? I currently get Popular Science/Mechanics and would like to get at least 2 wood magazine subscriptions. Thanks for the help.
Did you ever wish you had two lives to live? Sometimes I sure do. I have been fortunate to experience two completely different lifestyles and wish that I could live them both. At least with technology and things being what they are today, it isn’t all or nothing one way or the other. I can experience both worlds pretty much on a daily basis so it is at least workable. This week has been just wonderful. Seeing my son and his wife and my daughter has been so good for me. It give...
