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...

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 Craftsman 113.298032 Contractor Saw - SOLD - 3 replies
SOLD I’ve bought several of these older Emerson made contractor saws and sold them off for parts.

Both are fully functional, no cracks, chips, drill holes, etc., no significant rust accumulation, knobs and totes are fully intact (no cracks or repaired breaks), full blades, Japanning ...

Ridgid R4330 Planer - Handwheel Mod - 9 replies
Well, I finally found a use that for cheesy plastic combo square I bought from the Dollar Store in 2001…..who knew that a “square” wouldn’t be square?! Anyway, I used the aluminum ruler as an extension for the tiny handwheel on my Ridgid R4330. That little wheel was always really a nuisance to use….this helps alot...

More Craigslist Insanity - 39 replies
Listings like these make me wonder where people get their price information. This ad has 3 used tools listed in nice condition, and each one is near the original MSRP or higher. They did a nice job with the listing and pics, just not the pricing. http://rochester.craigslist.org/tls/3282183013.html ALL FOR SALE!!!! Rigid 6 1/8” J...

Why Is Rough Sawn Lumber Cut In Such Long Lengths? - 22 replies
The title pretty much states my question. I have a small shop and limited storage space…most of my wood storage is less than 8 feet wide, so most of the time that I buy rough sawn lumber I end up cutting it into pieces that’ll fit my rack. In my 11 years of woodworking I’ve only once needed a piece of lumber that even approa...

Some Old Tools...Anything Interesting Here? - 26 replies
Hi gang – While cleaning the shop I got to poking around some of the old hand tools I’ve picked up over the years. I’ve got some working knowledge of old bench planes so haven’t shown those, but I know next to nothing when it comes to old bit braces, compass planes, etc. I’m not looking to sell anything, but am cu...

Raw Linseed Oil - 16 replies

Why is this site so slow lately? - 32 replies
My PC isn’t exactly state of the art, but it’s “optimized” nicely, and generally makes short work of internet tasks. Lately I’ve noticed this site being slower to respond than usual on several occasions. This morning it’s extremely sloooooow. Anyone else experiencing this or know why? Other sites seem to b...

Anyone else hate saw dust? - 9 replies
My shop has been long overdue for a fresh layout and a good cleaning. Got up early Saturday and started rearranging the layout according to a plan I had worked out. Geepers there’s saw dust everywhere! I’m not talking about those innocent fresh piles of saw dust left by a table saw cut. Everything I moved had piles of cob-web co...

The Kontera Ads Need to Go! - 20 replies
I don’t generally post off-topic stuff, and I don’t generally get involved in the posts about advertising on the site, but those Kontera ads that popup right in the middle of the screen, and that can’t be closed on demand need to go! Those are a lot different than an ad off to the side or at the top of the screen that I can ig...

BORK Blade Guard Update (video) - 4 replies
FYI….For those of you who own a BORK riving knife and blade guard, or who have an interest in one, Bob Ross has made a nice update to the BORK Blade Guard (BBG). He was kind enough to send me the updated piece, so I could add it to my original BBG. If you currently have a BBG, I believe he’ll send you the hinge piece if you ask. F...

Great Deals On Nice Saw Blades - 7 replies
Over the years I’ve posted many times preaching against buying cheap blades because they’re usually false economy in the long run, and often don’t perform very well for very long. Every once in a while an opportunity rolls along to buy a very good saw blade at a very good price, and now’s one of those times! Onsrud curr...

I got a little carried away buying model trains this winter (like everything else!), and need to sell some stuff to generate a little cash. These are duplicates in my Record hand plane collection…a # 04-1/2 and #03. These are both heavier built older planes with the older style frog, lateral lever, and Y-adjuster. Both are in excellent ...
