I saw this listing on CL today. There is very little hardwood available in my area but to be honest with you I don’t know if this is a good price or not. I spoke with him and he is needing money. He said it has been standing up for the past 15 years. Please let me know what you think. 212 Bd ft of nice cherry 4/4, 7-8 ft lengths, 6̶...

Straight Edge for Jointer - 1 reply
I have been a busy boy!!!! Picked up a used R4511 a month or so ago. Found a new Bies fence on CL for $200 to install that my wife brings home today…which is great because the saw came with a router table extension that the base R4511 fence will not support.I picked up a Grizzly 1182 jointer off of CL. I paid $180 for the jointer, a Ski...

R4511 or Jet JTAS-10 Questions - 64 replies
I have finally given up on my Craftsman 21833 because the dang alignment is not fixable. By the time I aligned it for the fifth time I finally realized it is the saw and not me. Of course I pick up on this 2-3 weeks after warranty is up. I’m an idiot!!! After this debacle I have been looking for used saws with cabinet mounted trunnions ...

Hitachi C10LA - Anyone owners out there? - 2 replies
I have given up on my Craftsman 21833 table saw. After months and months of trying to repair the alignment issues it seems that it has beaten me. I thought I had it licked several times. But I posed on CL and someone responded with a Hitachi C10LA table saw for $400 (price is negotiable). I know the C10FL gets really good reviews. Does anyone...

!http://i1235.photobucket.com/albums/ff428/cd1hilburn/12-12067.jpg ! I was at an auction today and bought a bunch of misc. lumber. To be honest with you I don’t know what most of it is.

Wood cup/warp - 10 replies
I spent most of last night planing some maple in preparation for beginning to build some Christmas gifts. I went out to the shop a couple of hours ago and the boards are warped, cupped, crooked. They are so out of shape I don’t know if I can use them. I have only been actively woodworking for a year or so hence I am basically a newbie. It ...

Maple - 2 replies
As many of you know, living near Myrtle Beach, SC doesn’t offer the opportunity to purchase a lot of species of hardwoods. At the BORG and its blue step brother it is basically red oak and poplar. I found a place that sales 1×8 maple for $5.14/lf. My question is bascially this….Is this outrageously overpriced or within a normal ...

BT3000 Help - 9 replies
I bought a cheap bench Delta table saw a few weeks ago for $50 and while it will make sawdust I really did get what I paid for. I just found a BT3000 that I can get for $80 and for the money seems like a heck of a deal. I thought I would go pick it up tomorrow. What do you guys think of that saw for that price? I am a newbie and don’t have...
