New shop from a double-wide? - 37 replies
Has anybody ever tried to convert an older mobile home into a workshop? this was actually my wife’s idea. We passed a mobile-home repo lot one day and she wondered aloud if an old one might make a good shop building? I’ve seen several for sale (reasonably cheap) and I’ve been trying to find out if maybe finding a double-wide...

I have a Lazyboy rocker-recliner that’s almost 30 years old and as much as I hate to admit, it’s beyond shot. After being moved from house to house and state to state all these years the wood rockers are so worn that it actually takes an effort to make it rock and the swivel is pretty much bound up. So it’s time to send it to t...

How secure are the windows in your shop? - 28 replies
I’ve been looking at a LOT of your workshops lately, because we are going to be moving within the next year and I’m gonna be putting up a new building when we get back to Ga.

How to do a blog? - 8 replies
How do you guys (and gals) do these Blogs where you add each next part, and the links for each of the parts show at the top of the blog page, each with it’s own title (part 1. part 2, part 3, etc). I started a blog on making my own disc sander and couldnt figure out how to do a “Part 2” so I just added a revision at the bott...

Can I use a router speed controller on these? - 16 replies
I’ve spent about 2 hours Googling and all I’m getting is a headache plus more and more confused :-( I’m trying to build a 12” shop made disc sander, and the first motor I tried was WAY underpowered. I dug around in my shop and came up with 2 more electric motors, both of which are plenty powerful, but both of them run ...

Dublin, Georgia (and surrounding areas) - 3 replies
We will be re-locating to a small town near Dublin, Georgia in the near future. It’s literally a “cross-roads” town (Kite, GA) in a rural farming area. I need to get a workshop/garage/storage type building put up so we’ll have a place to put all our “stuff” in. After we get moved and settled in, I’ll set...

Stanley 32-1/2 rule, how old is it? - 3 replies
Recently I saw a post about folding wood rules. Someone showed a pic of a pocket-size Stanley folding rule. I remembered I had one and finally found it. I did a bit of research on the Interweb and it seems these were made from the 1800s to the mid 1900s. Looking at mine with a magnifier, I see the “usual” markings but I dont see any...

Pulse Page...new posts add up fast! - 7 replies
When I go to the pulse page I have been using the “All activity” link at the top of the page. I noticed that the links that I have looked at (or replied to) show “X new in last X minutes” in a nice green highlight.

Feet on cutting boards ? - 16 replies
I’ve been making (and giving away) cutting boards for almost 3 years now. I’ve mostly used oak, maple, and poplar (fron the big box stores) so mine have pretty much been just under 3/4” thick when finished. I USED to think some of my boards were pretty darn nice (as per the comments from the folks who have been the reciepients ...

DW735, poor boy's dust collector attempt - 14 replies
So it’s only been a few weeks ago that I scored a DW735 planer on craigslist. It didnt come with the infeed/outfeed tables but that’s ok because I’m gonna mount it on a stand I built for another radial arm saw I had and I’ll make folding extensions on the cabinet. It did come with two different dust/chip ejectors. One is ...
