Cricket, ‘the time of post’ column seems messed up. It’s very confusing and also takes up more space. It’s probably and accident but in case it’s not I wish that you would change it back. BTW, ya’ll are doing a great job overall. Thanks. edit: it may also be the personal homepage as well. helluvawreck ak...

International Woodworking Fair - 13 replies
I went to the IWF Wednesday, Thursday, and Saturday in Atlanta. I laid out on Friday to give my feet a little rest. I was just wondering if anyone else attended to see all of the equipment and supplies. helluvawreck aka Charleshttp://woodworkingexpo.wordpress.com

Box hinges - 13 replies
I sure would appreciate some information on sources for box hinges with stops. I don’t have a problem with using the brusso hinges on the more expensive boxes but there is no way to justify them on the less expensive boxes. Thanks in advance for the info. helluvawreck aka Charleshttp://woodworkingexpo.wordpress.com

With the snow in North Georgia this morning it’s a great time to just sit in my armchair in front of the fireplace and look through my collection of books and magazines for project and design ideas. My wife and one of my daughters are also with me. helluvawreck aka Charleshttp://woodworkingexpo.wordpress.com

Lumberjocks!!! If you use it you improve it. If you don’t use it you loose it. If you’ve quit you’ve lost it because you’ve given up.

Is the G8749 a good sander to have for Intarsia and similar crafts? I also have a Jet oscillating spindle sander. Where do you get the finer grit sanding sleeves and flaps/brushes (220, 320 and above)? Thanks in advance for your help. helluvawreck aka Charleshttp://woodworkingexpo.wordpress.com

I have just put a link on Sprucegums thread to where you can see the full film about Ben’s Mill. The full film is about twice as long as the first. The second half shows Been building a heavy duty horse sled for another farmer. Here's the link back to Sprucegums thread where I put the link to the full film. Enjoy, I know I did. hellu...

Chiefwoodworker is a fellow Lumberjock and I have looked his shop over many times since I began to plan my own. I love his shop and he builds beautiful furniture as well. His shop is only 30’ x 30’ but looks much bigger. He has a drawing of his layout and also about 187 pictures of what he does in his shop. He’s very impressive...

My New Shop's Electrical System - What do you think? - 46 replies
After I get my 30’ x 30’ shop dried in I plan on sheeting the inside with plywood. I like to be able to use nails and screws to hang stuff where ever I want to. I’m planning on installing a 200 AMP service (not 3 phase) to the shop that is completely separate of the house. I will mount the box on the surface of the interior ply...

More tornadoes here. I’ve learned not to mess with tornadoes. When we hear the warning siren my wife and I don’t take chances. We go outside around the corner of our house, open the storm doors, and go down the steps into the cellar room (10’ x 10’) 7’ under the house. I’ve gone down there 3 times today. My wi...

Like I said, I may be going daffy. I’ve had people warn me about getting into turning. They’ve said you’ll be sorry. They’ve said you’ll get hooked. Well, we’ll see. I just ordered, two chucks, a drill chuck for my tailstock, a faceplate, a couple of books, and a DVD, and a set of turning tools. It will all be...

Welcome, Nathan, ya’ll have a great site. I want to apologize about posting today, in the last hour or so, on the thread about global warming. I have’nt participated as much as I normally do during the last week or so. I have posted on a few projects only because I have just been really busy. Because I have been very busy I did...

Lumberjocks, I need a good source for good but affordable 6” X 48” 250, 280, and 320 grit sanding belts. Do you know of such a source where they stock it and allow you to buy 1 or 2 pieces of each or a combination of a half dozen mixed grits? If they also stock the lower grits but allow you to mix the grits I could buy 1 dozen at a t...

Most of you know that I’m not an advanced craftsman. I have been making some mitered corner craftsman boxes with with keys in the corners for a couple of months and I want to put a Watco Danish Oil Finish with a topcoat on them. I sand my boxes to 320. I apply the Danish Oil and after 15 minutes I wipe excess off and apply a second coat. T...

Can someone help me recover a lost post? - 10 replies
For the last 30 minutes I was making an important post where someone had asked for some help. I accidentally hit some key or something and lost every word in my post. I know – I should have been saving it myself in case this happened. Well I didn’t. I noticed a note just below the posting window that said that my last draft was save ...
