FS - LeeCraft Zero Clearance Inserts for Ridgid R4512 - 7 replies

I bought these about a year ago, and they were the wrong ones. The trouble is, I didn’t open the box and check if they were the right ones until after the return period ended. So now I’m stuck with them. If you have a RIDGID R4512 TS and would like them. let me know. They look like they’re about $35 new. I’ll let them go ...

Anyone tell who made this plane? - 12 replies

A recent 2nd hand store find, I picked up the little rusty plane with a broken tote for $4.99. I cleaned of the rust, re-glued the tote, re-japaaned it, sharpened it, and it works fine. But I could not find any marks on it, except veeeeery faintly on the blade… (????)NT MFGNEW YORK It’s not a high end plane: the depth knob is s...

I started my own woodworking site/blog - 7 replies

I went ahead and started my own woodworking site/blog. I’ll probably end up doing a lot of double posting projects and such both here and there. LJs is for you, the fellow woodworkers, and the new site is for you too, and the non-wodworkers that might be interested in what I’m up to. If you’re interested, take a look… ...

I can finally resaw straight - 17 replies

Well, its my bandsaw, a Grizzly G0555P 14” that I got about a year and a half ago. It came without the riser block, and I upgraded to that shortly after getting it, for 12” of resaw capacity. At the same time, I also got a Wood Slicer 1/2” 3-4 tpi blade. I thought I was in great shape, put it on, and made my cuts. But for the m...

What is this old saw? - 8 replies

I’m visiting my mother in law, and she had some “old saws” in the garage. I pulled out two old rusty Disstons, some ‘70s Stanley’s (1970s, not 18…) and this metal handled beast… The metal handle looks crazy uncomfortable. The sweep of the saw back makes me think this is old, but there ...

identifying this combo waterstone - 2 replies

I was given a combination waterstone, and I’d like to start using it. But I have no info on this stone, and also can’t tell which side is which grit. I think it is this 1000/6000 from Rockler, but how to tell which side is the 1000 and which is the 6000? I can’t tell from feeling it. I feel stupid not being able to tell, but...

Removing 18 gauge brads from Oak - 20 replies

I’m trying to save about eight pieces of red oak that were pinned together with 18 gauge brads in door frames. Those little nails break off 50% of the time when trying to pull them with pliers. They’re too soft to hammer the heads out, not that there is very much in the way of heads on those. Any tips or suggestions for the best way ...

Moral question: selling something I don't think is safe - 50 replies

Here’s a moral question I’m wrestling with. I have a Rockler 3/4 HP bag type dust collector that I just replaced with a HF 2HP DC and a Wynn canister filter. The Rockler came with a 30 micron bag, which I replaced with the 5 micron bag. But after learning more about DC, I now understand that even the 5 micron bag isn’t safe, a...

Air Filtration - converting a Rockler 3/4 HP DC - 5 replies

I’ve been woodworking for about a year, and as I do, read, and learn more about setting up a shop, I’ve gotten serious about dust collection safety. I started with the shop vac for basic dust collection, then moved up to to a Rockler 3/4 HP wall mount DC, and changed the 40 micron bag out to a 5 micron bag. I’ve now come to rea...
