Little Help With This Bracket Please - 15 replies
Anyone know what this bracket is called and or where they are sold? The photo is from the Costco website and it’s a frame with a full length mirror that hangs on the existing door hinges with shelves on the back that you can access by swinging the frame out.

What is the best paint/finish stripper? - 5 replies
I bought a gallon of Crown stripper at Lowes and don’t care much for it. The directions tell you to let it sit for about 30 minutes but after about 10 min it’s dry. I’m removing shellac from an old chest for my daughter and need to know if there is a preferred product out there. I’ve used Formby’s and it does pre...

I am looking at a Freud router on CL. The guy says it’s a 1700 VC and it’s unused. I can’t find anything much on this router and was hoping that someone could provide information.

808 Days - 3 replies
I was looking back today at my first posts on here. I posted photos of my shop in it’s early days. What has stuck with me was the encouraging words from some of the LJ’s. A1, Dbhost, hellofawreck to name just a few. Those comments were like gold to me. The positive comments helped to push me down the woodworking path to where I ...

Compressors Oil or Oil-less?? - 25 replies
My compressor is on it’s last leg. It’s a 3hp 20 gal. CH I bought in 97. The replacement pump is more than the compressor cost new. Time to buy a new one but I can’t decide between oil or oil-less. I use it with my spray gun, pin and brad nailers and that’s about it. It gets a workout when I am spray finishing. Othe...

HVLP Crossroads - I Need Your Input - 8 replies
I’ve been planning, shopping, researching for a while now. Looking at Earlex, Fuji and others and suddenly questioned myself. I have a 3 horse compressor so would it make sense to buy a turbine or a compressor driven HVLP sprayer. Is one better than the other for finish quality or durability? Any input would be appreciated. I did a se...

They Don't Make Them Like They Used To? Weigh In. - 44 replies
What do you think? I waffle here. Some of the old stuff is really good and really cool but some of this new stuff – really great. I guess in the end technology improvements prevail. These new routers, jigs, clamps, etc. – they really help me. New tools are lighter. That may or may not be good. Micro adjustments, dust collectio...

Please Correct Me If I Am Wrong - 6 replies
Bought a reconditioned circular saw in May from Ridgid. R3202. The saw looks great but had problems out of the box. Gave the trigger a squeeze and the blade slipped. Tightened it a little more. Still slipped. Took the blade off and the inner flange was missing. I also noticed the bearing wasn’t pressed on the shaft far enough. Call...
