Tools Forum: fixing drill press runout - 9 replies

I’ve done the searches for this topic and didn’t find help. So here goes. Today my buddy was over with his son to work on their pine car derby entry. When using the drill press it became clear that mine has a lot of runout. Even with a very straight bit we get a lot of wobble. I suspect I need to take the chuck off clean any debri...

Grizzly Maple Workbench Tops - 6 replies

Anyone ever used one of these tops from Grizzly? I am thinking of using one of these tops as the top for an assembly table in my shop, and to replace the extension table in my table saw. Do you think they’d stay flat? Any other concerns or comments? What about better sources?

Fantastic Quote from wifey - 3 replies

Last night I glued up a lot of 3/4” sticks of poplar to make 1 1/2×1 1/2 post for doll beds. When I showed wife this morning, she said… ”Wow, it’s a good thing you have all those clamps!” I feel like I’ve hit a significant milestone with wifey :)

PowerMatic Model 66 Maintenance - 7 replies

Mortiser Tables Generally Suck - 5 replies

Looking for Recommendations - 6 replies

In my home shop, I really need to keep air hoses and exension cords tidy. There are tons of retractable systems out there, but some can be really cruddy. I am hoping to get some recommendations for good ones. I prefer the really flexible lightweight airhose to the heavy rubber stuff.

Today, after being inspired by woodworking podcasts and folks like you, I decided that I needed to tune up my Powermatic 66.
