Hey everybody, I just had to gloat a little. I just won an ebay auction on a Forrest 10”, 40 tooth, thin kerf WWII blade. This is the Item description listed Forest 10 Inch Saw Blade for auction….Sharpened ONE time and has not been used since it was sharpened. It is in excellent condition. 40 tooth; 3/32 inch thin kerf table saw blade I checked with Amazon. The blade sells for $125 – $143. The saw blade stiffener, which is also included, is priced between $28 ...
I took the plunge today! I finally bought a Magswitch featherboard at Rockler. I have been eyeballing them for a long time, but too stingy to let go of $70! I thought I would just get a couple magnetic switches to make up my own. The other option is just making up an expanding rail to fit in the miter slot. Neither have gotten done, but I have been watching eBay for bargains on magnetic switches. Low and behold, I found one with about 900 pounds pull with a shape that that would easil...
I usually have to stay away from ebay, because it tends to be a little addictive for me. Just got a couple of good deals. Here are my winnings from three auctions. It all started because I was looking for a “Big Boy” plane for my 21 month old. I have a Stanley Handyman 1203 (similar in size to a Stanley #4 but 1/4” narrower and a bit less refined) that I use for things I don’t want to touch with my Pre-War #4. Things like outdoor deck railings or other possibl...
This simple project was prompted by a forum topic, What do you do for a living? The topic was interesting to me because of the diversity of the folks, jobs, specialties of many of you. I guess with 6000 plus people on LJ’s, there’s gonna be quite a cross section of life. One thing that we all do have in common is our love of wood and what can be created with it. Seems that after we make something, we like to share with others. Problem is, after we share with our wife/mo...
The other day I griped about early bidders on eBay – that post got more hits and comments than any other I wrote here. One great byproduct of that post was finding out what other people use to snipe eBay auctions. But first, a paragraph for the uninitiated (those who need to be taken on a snipe hunt). Sniping is a method of bidding in which the bidder places their bid with just seconds left in the auction. Provided the bid is higher than any other, sniping gives others no time to top...
The following is a rant, provided free of charge to LumberJocks and visitors. I’m sick and tired of inexperienced eBayers who are jacking prices up on items I’m wanting to buy. I doubt that they are doing it intentionally. In fact, you may be among the guilty ones. Here is the kind of person I am ranting against: You see a perfectly nice item, maybe even a perfectly nice old item. You see that it is listed for, say, $10.00. You commit and bid, thinking to yourself, “Yo...
Thought this would be a fun list. Stuff you could make for your wife, sister, brother, brother-in-law, boss, friend or family member. Not to complex, but fun, perhaps adding a link to etc. Repeats, adding new links etc are ok etc. For all real woodworkers ! It’s time to start cranking out some gifts …. #1 blanket chest ....link ... #2 corncob holders … link ... 3 picture frame 4 paddy wacks #

When I first started getting into woodworking, Pops showed me his two carving mallets. One was made from Osage Orange and one was a heavier, denser, more oily wood. He didn’t know what it was, but he said if I ever came across one to pick it up because they were pretty hard to come by. It didn’t take me much research to figure out Pops had a Lignum Vitae mallet in his possession. So I started looking into finding one. An extensive search found very few places that sold them...
