How to convert your Performax drum sanders 2 ½ inch dust port to a 4 inch for less then 5 bucks I have the older model 16 – 32 Performax drum sander like this one and at times it is a pain in the you know what with the belt always needing consent adjustment and keeping the machines drum head level. I really love the machine and what can be done with it.But it kicks up a lot of fine dust, my dust collector system works pretty well but as we all know it is next to impossible to ...
I had a problem with polyurethane and lacquer on finished wood projects drying – especially when it was humid outside. I used to put them on a special rack in the furnace room but I recently tried putting them in the output air of the dehumidifier and it works just great.You might want to try that on rainy days to get the finish to dry so you can put on multiple coats in one day!

For a very long time now I have been wanting to learn how to turn on a lathe. Well recently I was able to purchase a lathe using a Gift card I won thanks to your votes. My first project, wow, well since I am a fan of pen turning, I thought that would be the place to start. So I turned a Bullet Pen. This is a 30 caliber bolt action bullet pen kit and man is it cool. I will be making more of these for sure. I really enjoyed turning and I can see where I will be doing a lot of it in the future a...
Sometimes you have to put the wood work aside to take care of other stuff around the place. I’ve noticed online quite a few people wondering if you can raise or move a shed. Here’s living proof of how quick and easy it is. Normally I have one of my several gardens next to the shed as well but this year I had to put it off because the shed was sinking into the ground and being taken over by ground hogs. I had to raise it 4”. The shed is 10×20. Empty I figured it to be ab...
Hey All. Just passing along an internet connection to cable news streaming that I listen to during time in my shop. It ran all day yesterday without interuption.

Pretty cool, I think anyway. BaqiWorld.com. (once you get past that first commercial your good to go)I am retired and have absolutly no connection to...
While setting here at my desk with another Burning on the table, I was thinking that ONE VERY IMPORTANT secret is(just like with woodworking, painting a masterpiece work of art, YOU have to look for the SOUL OF THE PICTURE. With wood burning, anyone can trace over a picture but you have to look inside the picture for the depth of each color. With a pattern being Black, white and many tone of gray this is where you can tell the difference in the picture. I really can’t describe how o loo...
