Hey Gang,Regardless of how lumber is dried- kiln dried or air dried- will it be more stable if the tree is cut down before the sap rises? Another way to ask the question, when is the best time to fell a tree to obtain the most stable lumber?Thanks for your answers, ..Marc

sharpening router plane blades - 5 replies
Hello Gang,How do you sharpen your router plane blades? I was going to start mine freehand then I thought I might make the base of the blade out of parallel with the sole of the plane after several sharpenings, so I was thinking about building a platform that fits over the stones for the plane to ride on. Am I being overly concerned about keep...

Hi All, I wanted to make some raised panels for a Sapele vanity from some resawn stock but was concerned the resawn pair was too thin to create an adequate tongue of 1/4 inch thick. I was ready to simply mount them in the frame as flat panels but after mulling it over for a while I thought about building up the back edge wit...

Hello Gang,I have a set of Vee panel T&G router bits (Whiteside #3374) that will work on 5/8 inch and thicker boards but I want to know if any of you are aware of a set of cutters that will work on 1/2 inch boards. Whiteside has a T&G only set (#3375)that will work down to 1/2 inch and I thought about getting that and then cutting the v...

Hey Gang, I was asked to finish an 8 foot long, 16 inch wide walnut slab to be used as an serving/eating bar in a friend’s kitchen. She wants me to retain the cavity area and fill it with a clear resin. The cavity has a partial bottom so I would need to create a temporary dam on the underside until the resin hardens. I have n...

Hey LJ folks,First I was not certain how to search for this topic if it had been posted before. When I click on any link in a message my browser (IE or Firefox) leaves Lumberjocks and takes me to that new website. I would prefer having it open a new tab or window. Is this a feature of LJ or is it just the way my settings are configured?Thanks...

Hello All,This is the first time I am using shellac; it will be as an undercoat or sealcoat beneath General Finishes Arm-R-Seal or Waterlox. I am preparing 4 test pieces of Paduok for my friends to decide what finish they want on their table.Each test piece is sanded to 240 and one half is coated with the shellac. After sanding, the entire pie...

Oakley is our 10 year old Canada that we adopted from a Wildlife Rescue organization near here. He seems very content to sit and watch me do woodworking outside of the garage. Angle (which stands for A Nice Goose Loves Everybody), our other Canada (not pictured) is usually entranced listening to radio broadcasts of baseball or football ga...

Hello Group, A customer (co-worker) asked me to make a dining room table from a 14 foot, 42 inch wide, 1&1/2 inch thick paduak slab. I cut the ends off to reveal an 8 foot long table top and want to use the cutoffs for the leg components, retaining its live edge as well. Since the cutoffs are as wide as the top I was going ...

Hello Gang,(First, I plan to experiment on several pieces of scrap once I drag my compressor into my basement shop.)I am redoing our kitchen and to match my refrigerator I’m replacing the pine T&G boards on my closet and other areas with some mildly (curly) figured hard maple. Most of these board are attached to the framing lumber wit...

3 phase machines with voltages higher than 230/240 - 18 replies
Hey Gang,I hope this is the right forum for this query. I was looking at the schematics for the different voltage configurations of the Sawstop Industrial model on line and I noticed for the models with higher voltages- 415, 480, or 600V – they use a transformer to bring it down to 230 for the motor. Is this a typical set up for most 3 p...

Hey Gang,Hope all of you are doing well. I am daydreaming about upgrading to a 12 inch jointer and its stated weight is 762 pounds. I have not seen any standard mobile bases that will accommodate this and wanted to know if anyone could recommend a source or a manufacturer. Grizzly and Powermatic do not show any mobile bases for machines larg...

breadboard ends; some questions - 2 replies
Hello Gang,Long time no visit but I wanted to tap in to the knowledge many of you possess. I am making an oak desk top, 67×31, 1&1/4 inch thick. The breadboard ends are 5 inches wide. The tenons are 1/2 inch thick, 2 inches long and there is a 1/2 inch stub tenon running contiguous (or continuous?,.... who cares?) front to back. The ...

Hey All,Hope everyone is doing well out there. I am considering upgrading my 15 inch planer to either a helical head or buying a new planer that is already fitted with one. Besides the benefit of a “better” finish, diminished noise output is also claimed as a feature for these heads. I have a 15 inch Delta that exhausts through a ...

Hello All,My dust collector remote switch is defective and of course it’s a long weekend so I can’t contact the manufacturer until Tuesday. The DC still works but now I don’t have the luxury of using my remotes. It’s a 220volt system sold by Oneida and made by NHD Industrial out of Taiwan. The batteries in the remotes ...

Lumberjocks website volatility? - 5 replies
Hey All,Has anyone had LJ close its web browser when clicking on links or going to successive pages at the bottom of your current page? I’ve had it shut down all LJ invoked links such as threads of search topics or trying to go to the next page in my search results. If I have a browser opened with websites other than LJ they do not close...

(The Shopnotes have been spoken for, sorry to those who wanted them)Hey Gang,I still have the majority of WOODSMITH magazines for sale and I want one dollar each, plus shipping. Most issues are in very good condition but a few may have a tear here or there and there may be some sawdust or coffee rings too. Some issues still possess their prot...

Can anyone identify this item? - 6 replies
Hey All,(I hope this is appropriate to post here)A friend of mine asked me if I knew what this was and my only guess is that it might be used to sharpen or true circular saw blades. On the back side of the head it reads “Speed Corp. ” “Portland ORE.” and the letters “PAT.” The only other mark...
