Question about tree burl - 8 replies
Hi, Was snowshoeing in the woods behind my place which is filled mostly with ash, walnut, cherry, maple and lots of pricker bushes. Happened upon this tree (I remembered the bark was cherry but looking at the pic now I can’t tell for sure) that was about 10 inches in diameter. This burl was up about 10 ft as I was able to reach it with ...

Was in there the other day dreaming about a 55 inch TV and went down the tools aisle. I noticed corded and cordless drills with the Bostich name on them.. Price points were decent, better for the corded tools than I would expect but figured since Bostich is owned by Stanley, who also owns Black & Decker, that they were just yellow Black &...

I noticed that on my first cut the blade actually started wide of my line despite the sole plate being tight to the straightedge, and then it settled into place. I swapped out...

As the title says….. I picked up a clean one for ten bucks at a yardsale Sunday (didn’t need it, but ten dollars?). I found an exploded parts diagram at the vintage machinery reprints section, but would like a manual so I can set up the sacrificial table properly. I was going to pull the motor to check the bearings but the case wo...

Was it a wood planer or ice shaver? - 6 replies
Well, with NO pic for you to look at, I’ll just throw this out there - I was at a thrift shop looking at some planes (Shelton and Wards, one broken handle, one incomplete) and I saw an interesting little thing. It had a blade like a hand plane, had a cast body with thumb wheel for adjusting depth of cut, no markings at all, the blade wa...

Like the question says – I have to sand and clear coat a wood door that faces southwest and has no overhang protection, so the sun, rain and snow beat it pretty badly. Customer is disappointed that the last guy’s job didn’t even last 2 years, and I believe he used a Cetol product. I just read that using an untinted base paint w...
