Dust Collector Hose - 11 replies

Howdy folks, I just bought a HF Dust Collector 2 Horsepower version. Everything went together just fine. I do plan to try some modifications very soon. Before that happens I need to clean up my workspace. The DC did not come with any hose. What does the average person buy to get this thing up and running? Is it a trip to a big box store to...

A lumber storage rack...finally! - 12 replies

Been puttin’ off the storage and workspace setup but I just completed step two with this wall mounted rack. I debated heavily on the store bought racks for 40$+ but decided I wanted some flexibility.

Goodwill finds, what have you found? - 7 replies

Since I’m in the process of getting my shop more efficient with work top space, shelving, out feed table and an assortment of other things, I have to be frugal.

13 feet of wall and a sliding miter saw - 2 replies

As you can see by the pic, I am undergoing some shop setup. I recently upgraded to a SCMS and am just now getting around to building a bench/station along this long wall. Based on my measurement I would need a minimum 30inch deep workbench for this to make sense. I want to make the saw same height as the bench too. Probably going to leave aroun...

router on extension wing? - 2 replies

I am deep in the search for a new table saw. I have been swayed over to the Grizzly side. If they have two saws such as the 1023, and the extension for a router is only $50 more (included in shipping), then whats the major issues that would deter a buyer from getting this? I can’t build a table for $50!! But there may be some obvious i...

Mobile tools question - 4 replies

As seen in the pics, I have a Delta planer with legs but no mobility. I would like to know if putting casters on this style of leg would create a problem or if this is a no brainer. I sort of feel like this is a dumb question but the particular piece of the leg has only a plastic type “foot” on it that obviously has a hole ...
