advice on purchasing a lathe - 14 replies
I am looking at a future purchase of a lathe. I have no experience with any lathes ever. We build a lot of kitchens and we dress up our corners with corner moldings I cut on our woodmaster. I have wanted to get into turning wood posts on a lathe as a way to add variety to our decorative moldings. I have seen cabinets that have corners buil...

I bought this compressor new about 14 months ago. I rely on my equipment to help me provide for my family. I needed a decent unit that was portable enough to take to the job site. When I first bought the unit it would build to 200 PSI quick. It appeared to be the perfect fit for my situation/budget. Well, this past December, both quick di...

Thanks for advice on DW708 - 1 reply
A recent posting I did asking questions about buying a DW718 closed out, I had mentioned I already own a DW708 I had purchased on CL. I had complaints about the DW708. The DW708 would cut the wood and leave a “S” curve in the cut. It was so inaccurate I knew I could not rely on it as a trim saw. It was mentioned to me that the bl...

advice on DW718 12" sliding miter saw - 15 replies
Lowes is offering this saw for 379.00 at this time. I might even be able to get a coupon for 10%. So for 350.00 it seems a great deal. I bought a used DW708 12” sliding miter saw off CL last June and I hate the saw. It is extremely in accurate but I think it is due to possible previous abuse by other owner. The DW708 has the sliding b...

Has anyone heard of Foley Belsaw Cabinet saw - 14 replies
I want to upgrade my 3650 to a cabinet saw when I find a good deal on CL. I found a Foley Belsaw table saw on CL, claims it is 20 amp, 2 1/2 hp motor wired at 220. I prefer nothing less than 3 hp but this saw pulls more amps then my 3 hp Grizzly shaper so I have to believe that it is at least or more then 3 hp. Anyone heard of this saw? ...

OK, so I love to deer hunt, mostly as a means of feeding my small family. We eat venison stew, chilli and smoke it over mesquite, ect… So the idea of stocking the freezer is great and exciting!

Are there great variances in...

Sandy definitely loves to run. I have been riding bit and bridle on bare back. As I have become more comfortable with Sandy riding her most afternoons, I have been learning more how to control her through neck reigning.
