Advice for selling - 11 replies
I’m on the fence about thinning the herd. I have some tools that I don’t and probably won’t use. For instance: This No.12 scraper plane appears to me to be in good shape, but I don’t know what goes into setting a price. It’s a cool tool with an interesting look, but lately I see $. It has a new Hock b...

Super Dust Deputy , before and after - 7 replies
Finally got this rigged up, along with cleaning up a long neglected area. I like it. I couldn’t find a Black Friday sale, but I got free shipping instead. Works for me! THANKS, Oneida! My DC got better just by getting rid of this, and going with 6” hose. I bought the hose, clamps and 5” to 4” reducer...

OK, bear with me, 1 more Dust Deputy question - 11 replies
I’m about ready to get the Super Dust Deputy to add on to my d/c. I’m holding out,hoping for a Black Friday deal. I’ve seen some youtube video’s, except for hooking up to a shop vac, I’m not going there. It looks to me like you have to dismantle it to empty it. That would not be a problem on something like this. ...

Dust collection upgrade - 17 replies
I bought this in 2008, it does ok but could be better. I do not have it plumbed into a system with gates and don’t plan on changing that . In the ceiling overhead is a length of green PVC pipe leftover from an inground drain system for gutters, with flex hose at each end. I move the hose to where I need it. I’m ok with that, ...

You might be a lumberjock - 10 replies
If you ever cut your tablesaw fence and wondered where the sparks are coming from, you might be a lumberjock. This is almost as good as when I drilled into the jaws of my lathe chuck with a forstner bit and said, “What’s that noise?” The good news. It’s still early. I got all day to top this.

Segmented spindles - 9 replies
I’ve been all over the web, and I can’t find anything on how to make a segmented spindle. Lots of bowls, staved vessels, hollow forms, no spindles. Either that or I don’t know how to google as good as I think I can. I have some ideas that need it. A solid spindle. To be turned between centers. Let’s say I decide I n...

Yellowheart - 14 replies
This is my first time to use it, and I have questions about the color. Is there something I can do to keep it yellow? I know to keep it out of direct sun, maybe a finish with UV protection? Any other tricks? I bought a small piece for something I’m working on. 2” x 6” x 6” It arrived with a big crack in it. I wonder ...

I need an electrician, and I'm too cheap to pay one - 20 replies
I want to remove the dimmer switch for my dining room lights and replace it with an ON/OFF toggle switch. There are six 65watt can lights in the ceiling. There is only 1 conduit to the box. There is also an ON/OFF toggle switch on another wall that will control these same lights. Here’s a crappy diagram that I drew. The dot...

I'm sick - 18 replies
Hello. I’m hairy. I’m out of control. I was at a yard sale yesterday. This is all I could see. That was all it took. It was buried under lots of stuff. It was dirty and neglected but not abused. I asked if it was for sale. They didn’t know. They took my name and number and called back today and told me what they wanted. I dr...

The inside dimension where the mattress will be is 12” x 24”. Sassafras and baltic birch plywood. Basically constructed like a drawer with a lift o...

Back from the dead - 11 replies
This is how it looked when it followed me home. Craigslist has been good to me. After being rust o rated. My operating theory was – If it ain’t broke don’t fix it. Everything got cleaned, checked, lubed, adjusted as necessary, but I kept the patina. Patina, that’s a nice word , why doesn’t it apply to peo...

I made all the mistakes for you. This : 3 @12” long Is much better than this: 1 @ 36” long I thought it was worth a try, it’s not.It is stable only at low speed, it got pretty exciting when I cranked up the speed. If you carve, this is worth it. 12” long The drive end is drilled and tapped to s...

Round glass for picture frames? - 10 replies
I’ve spent a big part of the day looking for some. I went to Michael’s and Hobby Lobby. I’ve googled, looked at ebay and amazon. Can’t find any. I did find oval and convex, no flat round glass. I saw many round picture frames for sale. Glass or plexiglass is fine. I don’t want to cut anything. Non glare would be ...
