I recently replaced the 5-HP motor on my Grizzly right-tilt table saw. (To be honest, my husband did because this weakling couldn’t lift 65 pounds.) I figured it was a good idea to replace the belts, too, so I ordered a set from Grizzly along with the motor. I’ve now gotten 3 sets of belts from Grizzly and none of them match my old, original belts. My original belts were FM-26. The first belts sent were 3V-250 which were the same configuration but too short. When I called b...
Update (12-2-12) So i’ve made the leap and started the build. I decided to make the structure framing out of 3/4” domestic birch. I pocket hole and glued the end pieces and then used 3” screws and glue to attached the horizontal supports to the end pieces. after some test sits from multiple people of different weights, it seems to hold up very well and have no flex at all. On the plus side the framing seems to be surprisingly light as well. I now have ran into a si...
Well that’s done with.. I won’t reiterate what I posted on the project page, but I did have a question for everyone who happens to look: How much do you think I should ask? This is a fairly unique project and I really don’t have a baseline to compare to. I have about 60 hours into it (waay too much, but a lot of it was learning) and the wood was really just scraps and shorts from other projects. The guy I built this for has been somewhat of a mentor to me while ...
In the US, less than 1% of American are currently serving in its armed forces, and less than 5% of living Americans have ever served. Yet as I wander the halls of LJs checking out various projects, blogs, reviews, forums, etc it strikes me that a much larger percentage either are serving or have served in the armed forces. My question then is how many of my fellow LJs are, or have, served. This question applies to my fellow LJs that are citizens of other countries. I am further curiou...
Is any body going to the inaugural Fine woodworking conference in New York? My work mate and I are presenting a case Monday that could see us heading over for 9 days.
LumberJocks know something about everything! So will one of you tell me for what this hardware is used? Thanks for your help.. L/W
Its been a while since I’ve updated on this project, but its time to wrap it up so that I can move on to other things.. I’m at a bit of a cross roads, though, and need some input. Should keep the angle that the center of the display sits the same as the rest of the display, or should I make it a lower angle? See the pics below for what I mean: Same angle Same angle with the walnut inserts Lower angle Lower angle with the walnut inserts Let me know what you think!

I am thinking of getting a set of drawknives built and I am wondering if anyone has any good recommendations. I am thinking of getting some vintage knives. Anyone have recommendations for Brand and other things to look for in the selection of drawknives? I have seen Greenlee, Swan, Wilkenson and some other brands. Is there a brand that excels? Are there good modern knives available? Also, I am looking for a bowl adze. I have seen one that I really like but it is quite spendy. ...
Hello Friends. I am in New Hampshire for work this week but I will have a little time for me before I fly back to France on Saturday. Any interesting woodworking-related places in New Hampshire ? I would be interested in tool shops, antiques or even Lumberjocks workshops etc… I have already been to Woodcraft in Portsmouth and this is the only woodworking-related place I know of in New Hampshire.I considered going to Maine to visit Lie Nielsen Shop but I am afraid that without a...
