I’m not a giant – only 6’ tall but I felt like I had to really hunch over to see the line on the wood and the blade. Welded up a stand and it’s much more ergonomic for me. There is enough room at the bottom for a shallow drawer that I’ll make when I making drawers for another project.

Recommendation on drawer glides - 3 replies
I purchased some real cheap glides a while back and the ball bearings fell out of a couple during installation. I cant remember the brand. Looking for decent quality and great price. What do you recommend? I need 20 @ 22”, 100% ext, soft close, side mount glides. They can’t be more than 2.25 tall. Thanks Jocks and Jocketts

waxilit vs Johnsons Paste Wax for machine tops. - 21 replies
Got the waxilit to keep glue squeeze-out from sticking to wood but when I read it’s intended purpose I found out it’s supposed to be for sealing and shining machined table tops like table saws. I decided to compare it to a fresh can of JPW. I removed all surface rust with lacquer thinner, barkeepers friend, and more lacquer thinn...

Royce Ayr table saw blades - 8 replies
Anyone try these blades out? I think they ship with new Minimax equipment. Heard about them on another site. What do you think of them? I can’t find an online source to buy them but I’d like to try one out.

Waxilit to protect wood from glue squeeze out. - 4 replies
Fine woodworking did an article on protecting wood from glue squeeze out using Waxilit. I hate glue squeeze out on my projects but never though to ask how people prevent it. The article said other wax will work too and as long as it doesn’t have silicone in it it will take a finish. Just need to pull the old glue off and use denatured a...

This is a 24” long jointer plane. The patent date of the plane iron cap reads 1867. When I disassembled it I noticed that the lateral adjustment turns freely but it doesn’t engage the iron. It looks a bit worn. I believe it’s all original. $50 plus shipping from 85233.

Record #7 handplane for sale - 9 replies
I got the plane bug a few years ago and I’ll be selling some of my duplicates and antiques. Our fellow Jocks estimated the price from $75 to $100. I’ll let our LJ’er have it for $75 plus shipping from AZ. Record #7. I don’t know the age. The older Record planes have rosewood handles then they used beech and now the...

What is this hand plane worth? Record #7 - 5 replies
I got the plane bug a few years ago and I’ll be selling some of my duplicates and antiques. I’d like to know what a fair price is. Record #7. I don’t recall the age. The older Record planes have rosewood handles then they used beech and now they have plastic. The handles on this are dark like rosewood but I wouldn’...

The seat of my rocking chair is a pain in my a$$ - 15 replies
I thought I’d post this tonight to see if anyone has an idea or recommendation I hadn’t thought of. I had a little bit of spalting in some walnut and I decided to take a risk and use it in my chair seat. The soft area got damaged pretty quickly when i was shaping the seat so I put a lot of minwax wood hardener in the punky area. ...

Anyone follow the antique plane trends? - 2 replies
I started to collect some old planes and I found that I prefer to have “users”. I’ve been thinking about selling a few of them. I don’t follow the market for antiques and I was just curious what the trend in price is doing. Are the old planes going up in value or is the market saturated?

Workshop photos - 3 replies
Is there a way for you to tell us how many photo’s people put in their WORKSHOP? Maybe use the number in parenthesis after the workshop e.g. WORKSHOP (4). I click on a lot of workshops that are empty which isn’t that interesting. Thanks for the consideration. MBS

Help with filling and finishing spalted walnut - 4 replies
The rocking chair seat has some spalting. It’s the grey/white part in the picture. I put a lot of minwax wood hardener in it which helped firm up the area. However, the surface is not flat because when I hit it with a sander it really gouged the punky area. I hand planed it down a bit but there are some 1/8” wide and 1/16” ...

Sold – Sold -Sold I bought this used but I never use it. I have another one that is very similar. I haven’t even sharpened this spokeshave. Here’s what the manufacturer says: The Clifton No. 550 Concave Spokeshaves are virtually unbreakable and easy on the hands. The weight and balance permit the spokeshaves to sit ...

Plane iron sharpening - 7 replies
After reading some threads on sharpening I decided to tune up my #62 bevel-up and #5 bevel-down planes (not my favorite task). I want to see if I’m thinking about the functionality correctly. I latched on to one of Don’s comments that the back is more important than the front. Yet, most of the time is spent on polishing the beve...

Just kidding! I had you going though, didn’t I? I just finished responding to a question about the saw from someone who has decided to buy one. I’m amazed about the passion people have about the saw. It reminds me of Ali – everyone watched him either because they loved him or they hated him. Sawstop threads are one of th...
