Is this a good deal? - 7 replies

Would any of you jump on this deal? It seems pretty good to me, already contacted the seller, and he said he’d even deliver it for $200. Looks good, hardly any rust that I can see, and I trust the craftsman name. Any feedback?Thanks, jason

Best place for plans?!? - 5 replies

I’m looking for plans for a nightstand. I don’t care if it’s free or I have to pay, I just can’t seem to find any plans that suit what my wife wants. It’s pretty simple, a drawer on top and a door on the bottom. What are some good websites?

Bandsaw Drift? - 36 replies

So, I’m hoping to get a little advice from those smarter than I. I’ve purchased the Grizzly G0555LX, which by the way, is a pretty sexy looking machine, especially for the price point.

Best way to refinish...? - 14 replies

Can anyone tell me the best way to strip the stain and finish off something? I found an amazing, really old, dresser, but I want to re-finish it. I think it’s top coat is wax based.

Air Filtration! - 24 replies

So, I’ve recently discovered that I’m allergic to all wood airborne particles. What a downer. I’ve been working in my shop with a real skookum dust mask for the last few months, but I’ve decided I want something more. I’m getting an electrician to re-wire my shop so that I don’t blow breakers when using two to...

Bandsaw help? Tensioning and guides? - 7 replies

Alright, so I just purchased the new G0555LX Grizzly. Wonderful saw, I think? I Hope. I can’t for the life of me get any tension on this thing. It ships with a 3/8” blade, so I tension it to that, but it actually provides zero tension. Any suggestions?? The tracking knob isn’t helping much either. Also, I can’t figure out...
