Would a light color stain work as a wood conditioner to control blotching? - 9 replies

The title pretty much says it all. Has anyone ever tried a lighter color stain as a wood conditioner. The plan is to stain generic pine dark, and wondered if a lighter stain would reduce blotching? I’d appreciate any feedback….

What a Difference a Good Saw Blade Makes! - 17 replies

My son needed to cut some reclaimed pine from an old waterbed and I was concerned about encountering staples, nails, screws, etc., so I dug out an Irwin Classic 40T blade, cleaned it, and tossed it on the saw. I could hear the difference from the second I turned on the saw. It rang, zinged, whined, and ticked my ZCI due to blade runout. The soun...

Need Input on older Makita 2012 or Makita 2040 planers - 12 replies

I’m looking into buying one of two older Makita thickness planers. One is the 12” model 2012 for $250….it’s in very nice condition with little use, and looks to be “plug and play”. The other is the 15” model 2040 for $275. Both have universal motors that run on 110v. The 2040 obviously has more capac...

Sold Out - SawStop TSA-PFA 30-inch Premium Fence System - $144 free shippin - 5 replies

Sorry, the deal is now dead…. Tool King has marked 20% off all SS accessories, making their 30” Premium Fence one of the better buys on the market these days. It’s not as good as their better fence, and may not be quite as good as a T2, but I’m speculating, and it’s priced better. http://www.toolking.com/sawst...

Delay Opening Posts - 51 replies

For the past few days this site has been very slow. Every time I open a thread, it takes several seconds to load every single time….didn’t used to be that way. The website loads quickly like it always has, but not the threads. Is it the site or did something change on my PC? ...(maybe the threads need some oil?). ;-)

Looking for Feedback on the Purple Grizzly Router Bits - 6 replies

Griz has some attractive deals on some of their purple bits, and am wondering what people thought of them. I’ve tried the greens ones and would rate them roughly on par with MLCS, Woodline, Woodriver, and other decent entry level Asian bits. Grizzly touts the purple ones as better (“best” according to them)....my assumption i...

Craftsman 1hp Reversible Table Saw Motor - 4 replies

This a 120v 14 amp 1hp Sears Craftsman table saw motor made in the USA…3450 rpms. It came from a 113.298### contractor saw, and runs like it should….smooth, quiet, strong, etc. The rotation is reversible.

Marples Record 04 Hand Plane - 16 replies

This is the first hand plane I’ve purchased in quite a while. It’s a Marples Record 04….nothing particularly special about it, not my favorite plane, not old, not rare, and not my best plane, but it was too good a deal to pass up at $20 plus s/h. That Hock blade was a big part of the allure. It should clean up beautifully. ...

Anyone have experience with memory foam mattresses from Ebay vendors? - 17 replies

Hi gang – It’s time for a new mattress and I’m looking for collective feedback from the group here. We’ve had a box spring mattress for years that’s seen better days….we added a 2” memory foam topper to it a couple of years ago that has helped, but it’s really not a permanent cure for a worn out m...

One of the strangest thing I've done in my life.... - 25 replies

I don’t venture into the off topic forum much, but had to share this. I got up this morning shaved, showered, brushed my hair, cleaned my ears, brushed my teeth, took my blood pressure pill, got dressed for work, checked the charge and clipped my phone to my belt. While fumbling for my shoes in the dark, I noticed that my wife’s c...

PSA - Two good TS deals on CL in the Rochester, NY area - 2 replies

These are not mine, and I have no association with the sellers, but thought both looked like pretty solid buys for anyone searching for a decent table saw in the WNY or CNY area. 1. Jet Special Edition 3hp cabinet saw with 54” fence (asking $825) 2. Ridgid TS3612 1.5hp contractor saw with router table ($250) (dunno if both fence...

SOLD I’ve bought several of these older Emerson made contractor saws and sold them off for parts. This weekend I acquired one that’s just in too darn nice shape to sell as pieces, so I thought I’d offer it up here in case anyone knows of someone in the western NY area looking for a nice deal on a good full size contractor s...
