advice on buying new pump for Air Compressor - 22 replies
Well, we work our compressor hard. Our air compressor gets used more than anything in our shop. The pump has gone bad on the compressor. It is a speedaire 80 gallon 7.5 hp. A new pump through grainger is 1400.00 and just a rebuild kit for the pump is just shy of 500.00 after taxes. I am considering getting an Eaton pump that comes with a 5 ...

Older Rockwell 20" bandsaw - 19 replies
So I was blessed with a 20” Rockwell bandsaw for 150.00. I can only find the Serial number 123-334 but cannot find a model number. The wheels measure 20” and spin freely. The throat from blade to far left is 20” so I am assuming this is a 20” bandsaw. The seller stated it was a 16” bandsaw but it is comparable i...

3 phase on single phase service question - 20 replies
So I might buy a power feeder. I am thinking it is 1 hp but I know it is 3 phase. The seller says it works fine. Here is the power feeder: So my question is this. I have never done anything with 3 phase equipment and have read a few threads. But I really don’t know my options but I know I don’t want to spend a lot but w...

I will not call this a gloat or anything. But I am scheduled to visit with a seller tomorrow. He has a few great buys on some machines. He has a single phase 16” rockwell bandsaw he wants 150.00 for it. He listed a picture and it looks pretty decent. He advised me the only issue is it could use a new guide bearing for the blade. We a...

Does anyone recognize this table saw? On CL - 8 replies
http://sanantonio.craigslist.org/tls/3961332745.html I have arranged to meet with the seller first thing tomorrow morning to buy the saw. He states he does not know the maker of the saw but it is mfg in Taiwan and has a 2 hp motor and works great. Stated it takes up a lot of room in his garage and he just does not use a table saw. So he is...

Paslode 16g cordless Gun FOR SALE - 3 replies
I have rarely ever used this gun so it has few miles on it. The gun does have some minor scuffs but has spent most of it’s life in the case stored in our shop. It takes gas cartridges and a rechargeable battery to operate the gun. As far as I know the battery works fine, we ran out of gas cartridges a few years ago I never bought any re...

18g Senco Finish Pro 15 FOR SALE - 2 replies
We have this 18g nail gun, it is very good working condition. We are diligent about oiling our guns. There has been a fair amount of mileage on this gun but it is built to last. Basically, even with the mileage we have put on the gun, it is better than many brand new guns in the 100.00 range, such as bostich guns for example. With proper air...

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...
|06-16-2013 02:15 PM||
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 ...

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...
