Hey Guys, I have applied 5 coats of Waterlox with a natural bristle brush and seem to be having an issue getting a nice finished surface. I scuff sanded lightly with 320 to remove imperfections after coats 3,4 & 5. The scuff lines seems to have appeared after the last coat but I have been battling small “nubs” or bumps the who...

Hey Guys, I am making a walnut countertop that will be attached to a knee wall . I bought kiln dried 8/4 flat sawn material, since the customer wants that exact look. The planks have now been jointed and milled down to 96’’ x 18’’ (4-5’’ widths] x 1.5’’. Of course the grain pattern looks the bes...

---- Dryer outlet for 220v Unisaw Help ---- - 3 replies
Hey Guys, Few questions about wiring. I have a 3 prong 10-30R 30A Dryer outlet not being use anymore near my Unisaw tablesaw. So, I believe the 10-30R has 2 hots (red and black in the picture), 1 (white) neutral and a bare ground pigtailed wired to the metal receptacle. The table saw needs 2 hot and 1 ground. I still need to open the main pan...

---Sensible Car for woodworking and 2 kids ?--- - 30 replies
Jocks, I need to replace my Nissan maxima but have some woodworking/family man concerns. Both my kids are still in car seats, so a 4 door mid sized truck is what comes to mind. Namely a Nissan frontier or Toyota Tacoma. The problem I am having is the gas mileage is not that great. Like most of you I will need to carry lumber,4×8 sheet ...

Jocks, I need a grinder and the lure of the old tools is growing in me. The grinder in the picture is available for $100 near my house. I don’t know much about grinders and certainly know anything about 60 year old grinders. Its made by US electrical Co, which is still in business and is 110v. I think it has 6’’ wheels. Now,...

Need advise on 18 yr old Unisaw tune up - 19 replies
Jocks, I bought a used ‘94 Unisaw 36-812 off of CL for $750 last week ( Good Price ? ). Saw is in nice condition, very moderate use it seems. But there is a vibration that caused me to take off the top to explore and deep clean as well. The saw was used very little for the last 10 years ( idle for most of that ) but here are some thing...

Lumberjocks, Looked at this 1994 Delta Unisaw 3 hp / 1 phase / right tilt / unifence this morning. The saw has been sitting outside on the porch since Sept/Oct of last year. Surface rust on trunnions, arbor, table top etc. Not sure why anyone in their right mind would do that ! The blade goes up and down but is in desperate need of lube and ...

***Advise on Craigslist Delta Unisaw*** - 4 replies
Lumberjocks, I am going to check out a Delta Unisaw from 1995 tomorrow. The gentlemen says it has seen light commercial use ( THEY ALL SAY THAT) and would not be getting rid of it unless he needed the money. He seems sincere enough. The saw has been sitting on porch of a friends business for a little while. I will find out tomorrow how long i...

Inca 2200 table saw worth buying ? - 3 replies
I have a opportunity to purchased a Inca 2200 table saw built in 1999. I have done as much research as possible without actually using the saw. I have used Euro saws before and found their design elements just make sense. More sense than most domestic saws. But I must admitt that the familiarity of the Deltas’ and the PMs’ is a str...

I just picked up a barely used Capspray CS9100 on Craigslist with 2 guns, unused accessory Needle kit and extra check values/o rings for $450. I’ve used an HVLP before but under better circumstances.
