Baileigh equip vs competitor equip - 25 replies
Every since Baileigh has decided to market through LJ, they have been on my mind. When I first looked I quickly noticed they cost more than Grizzly but seem to look nearly identical. They seem very comparable but Grizzly is much cheaper. In fact the http://www.grizzly.com/products/10-3HP-220V-Cabinet-Table-Saw-with-Long-Rails-Riving-Knife/G...

Shop build update - 8 replies
Well, we are going at a snails pace. We aim to build with cash so our next planned progress will be estimated October through November, maybe moving in by Thanksgiving. At this time we have poured the foundation for an 80 by 40 with 11’ tall side walls. The center peak will be around 16’. I have been designing layout on sketc...

Questions about Lumber Core sheet goods - 6 replies
I was at Roddis today, I never shop there as I go to Paxton. They had a sample of some lumber core setting at the desk. I was impressed. It actually looked very solid, good stuff. I was thinking, this stuff has got to be 70-80 a sheet at least. The entire core was a solid, although light weight, wood. But the veneer is unfinished and I hav...

I visited with JB, very nice guy, at his shop where he sold us an awesome shaper last year. When in his shop I noticed he was fairly organized and made use of these 4’ tall 4 drawer filing cabinets where he kept hardware, misc tools and even routers, shaper cutters and so on. I got to thinking about that, our organization is basically MD...

advice for issues with collecting final payment - 103 replies
So I have had this issue with collecting a final payment. It is from a high end builder who is building 3/4 million dollar homes. He does not seem to be broke or anything that I can tell. We completed the final punch list at the end of April. He paid us but held a 20% retainer fee which totals just a bit less than 5,000.00. It is a large am...

I have never heard of this shaper. The guy said he thinks it is Australian made. He is basically a wood worker for fun and does not have the floor space. I need to act quick as the shaper is listed for 300.00. Here is the listing: http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/tls/3913366877.html I am confused some, because I spoke with the guy, who...

I do not own this shaper, nor am I currently involved in purchasing one. But I always look to the future and seem to be constantly looking for improvements here and there in skill and tooling. That said, I see the Unique 250 at auctions from time to time and figure it is just a matter of time before we consider purchasing the machine used. Ma...

CL add, I thought I just scored a Gold Mine :) - 12 replies
Read the CL add first please: http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/tls/3865637161.html So I read this add this morning. Maybe I am just too naive but I seemed to mis read the add and thought I was getting ready to score a whole shop’s worth of 2 year old Grizzly equipment for 2,500.00. I was thinking that I am grabbing 2,500.00 cash and ...

off topic content. Click to see the post. - 5 replies
Not sure if there is any interest but my parents are getting older and they own 35 acres and 3 good sized homes / cabins in East TN on the side of a mountain. My father has spent the past 20 years with hand to plow making this place a very nice peaceful and beautiful place to live or visit. They are selling as they are going to be getting to a...

I was thinking some. Yes it is probably just crazy thinking. But for those who make some of the most beautiful wood crafts such as bandsaw boxes and cutting boards we have custommade.com, we have etsy.com and what else. Some of the LJ here do their own website but going at it alone means taking on all of the cost of web site management, marke...

Bought Woodmaster 712 today off CL :) - 2 replies
We added a nice woodmaster 712 planer. We own the the woodmaster 725 and I do love the machine, but nothing can compare with dedicated set ups. We are going to set up the 712 to run crown molding, we will keep the 725 set up for planing. The 712 has a 5 hp motor and came with the different attachments for ripping, sanding and planing. We n...

Rockwell Delta 46-201 Lathe... - 3 replies
I am bidding on this lathe. Currently winning the bid at 68.00 think I can win the bid for a very fair price. I have never had any experience with running a lathe. This lathe comes with chisels, accessories. I hope to clean it up and give it a fresh coat of paint and possibly re sell the lathe for a profit. And I have thought about learni...

Installed 4 hp Leeson in my G1023 series TS - 6 replies
We have our new motor installed. It works fine and with some very minimal mod we were able to get our Grizzly back up and running after burning out the previous Grizzly motor. The Leeson motor is made as a Unisaw motor replacement. I had not heard or read of anyone doing this so thought I would pass the info along. It is more likely no one...

Visiting Honolulu on forced vacation :-) - 3 replies
So my sister decided to marry here in Hawaii, gave us all one year notice and we are all now hanging out in Waikiki. This is my 4th visit to Honolulu because of my Navy days. Not much has changed since my last visit 8 years ago. It is a really neat experience for my 7 and 5 year old daughter, and also my wife. The time change has affected us...

Motor burned out on Grizzly 1023 - 17 replies
OK, so I get excited and even gloat about our CL finds. I still heavily support acquiring old iron off of CL. But one trade off to employing a 25 year old piece of heavy equipment, in this case an 80’s model Grizzly 3 hp cabinet saw, is that you might have to purchase a motor like I did today. So my motor burned up, I went to my motor...

At the end of the day today I decided to do some light cleaning in the shop before heading home and took some pics of our fun little wood shop. Sort of cramped, will be great when our 40*80 is finished.

Do many Pro shops use LOC - 20 replies
So I had a conversation with a new friend. He used to run a good sized shop before going out of business. He gave me advice, collect debts well. He stated he had several thousands he did not collect and financial trouble resulted. He advised banks pulled his LOC and he was done. So far we have paid cash for everything, tools, labor, mater...

Met a very helpfull guy. Now I consider a friend. He works for a metal building components company. The fella informed me he used to own his own shop but closed down. He blessed me with a 20” Shapemaster made by Weaver. It is very good condition and appears well cared for, or not heavily used. That jig is 2000.00 new and he sold it t...
