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 ...

Dust collection quick disconnect - 9 replies
I have a dc flex hose hanging down from my ceiling that I move from tool to tool. This is the only thing like it I have seen . Any users out there? Or something similar? Yes, each tool plumbed into a system would be better, but that’s not going to happen. Thanks!! http://www.rockler.com/product.cfm?page=30200&site=ROCKLER

Paint and poly on basswood? - 6 replies
I have a project going that I would like to paint and the spray polyurethane on. I wanted a white wood, basswood is as close as I could find. It’s off white with no dark streaks. When I apply clear poly or lacquer on the scraps it darkens it too much for what I want. I tried painting scraps with white paint and the spray poly over that....

Working with antler - 8 replies
I have a whitetail deer antler that I want to use in a jewelry stand. This is my first time with antler. I will use the complete antler. I have some questions. Do I apply a finish to the antler? I think it might get scratched off in normal use of holding rings, bracelets, watches and necklaces. My plan is to insert a dowel into the antler ...

Another what the heck is it? - 12 replies
I picked these up at the flea market, $15 for the pair. The Bailey #6 looks like it should clean up pretty good. I’m not sure what the other is. I think it would work good in a shooting board. It weighs 9 lbs 11.4 oz. and 15” long. I would have Popeye arms after using it for a while. These are the only marks. Let me know what you ...

Router table blues - 15 replies
I have a cast iron router table top that serves as a wing on my tablesaw. I got it from craigslist. The owner was a machinist working in a well equipped shop. He made the plate that the router attaches to, and did a very good job of it. It is a good fit, leveling screws are part of the table and not the top. The plate is not attached to the t...

In search of the wild burl - 5 replies
Since the trees lost their leaves, I have been looking for burls. Not to harvest, just to look at. I haven’t seen one yet. Every where I go, I’m burl hunting. I scan the big trees first before looking at the younger trees. At one time I burned wood for heat.( Don’t shoot! I’ve seen the error of my ways.) Of all the tr...

Bandsaw dust collection blues - 4 replies
I’d like to say it sucks, but it doesn’t. I wish it did. My problem is NOT my dust collector, it’s the way this bandsaw is set up to collect dust. It’s a Jet JWBS-14CS, with a riser. It’s a craigslist find from 2 years ago. That connector is too small for a shop vac hose, but I did get an adapter to 4” from...
