FREE in Chicago Suburbs: Tool Shop Scroll Saw - 3 replies
I have this Tool Shop (Menards in house brand) scroll saw that my father in law gave me a while ago and don’t have a use for it as I have a DeWalt 788. I’d like to give it to someone who is in need. It’s obviously not the best scroll saw in town and I’ve actually never even used/turned it on but it’s free and if you...

I’m selling my Porter Cable 150 PSI 6 gallon air compressor. The unit is in working order however the tank pressure goes all the way up to 150 PSI and it tries to keep going at which point the safety valve opens and drops it back down to about 60 PSI and starts the process all over again. I’ve been using it by just not allowing it to...

How do I do this? - 2 replies
I’m trying to make a cheese slicer as seen here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xkIYe8qRaFc I’ve spoken with Mitch through email but he’s a busy man to track down and while I’ve gotten responses to my questions I’m still not 100% sure I’m understanding him correctly. What I’m trying to accomplish is...

Porter Cable Pancake Compressor Issue - 29 replies
Hey everyone,I don’t use my air compressor often as I don’t do that much air nailing but for the occasional task I turn it on and let it build up the pressure before use. The other day I needed to use my brad nailer so I turned it on and let it build up. It took longer than usual which I found curious and then all of a sudden it st...

Hammer A3-31 Helical Head Streaks - 16 replies
Hello,I purchased my A3-31 in early winter end of 2014 but didn’t actually take delivery until April 2015 as I had my second child last November and with winter and the second baby I knew there would be no time for woodworking so I held off. It turns out that even after it was delivered I didn’t get much time until now since the baby...

Find CNC near you link? - 4 replies
I know there is a site that allows you to easily find someone with a CNC willing to help out near you and I’ve seen it posted a bunch of times but of course when I actually need it I can’t find it. Does someone have the link handy? Very much appreciate it.
|03-27-2015 01:55 PM||
Again, as with the jointer, I’ll just link directly to the CL ad. http://chicago.craigslist.org/nwc/tls/4951337473.html

Online Tool Database, Does One Exist? - 10 replies
Hey everyone,I was just wondering if any of you know of a site where it has a categorized display of power tools that can be looked at and compared quickly from all tool makers? Think of, lets say, the home depot site and how you can view a tool, look at its specs/reviews, and then compare it with another tool on their site. Does anything like...

Hammer A3-31 Owners, Please Help - 12 replies
Hey everyone,I’ve been contemplating upgrading my setup to the Hammer A3-31 for what seems like 6 months now. I have read and re-read everything I can find about it, watched every YouTube video I saw, and gotten quotes from the reps twice now. The latest “review” of the A3-31 that was recently posted, taken down, and re-poste...

Woodsmith Shop S8E6 Demilune Table Finish - 2 replies

HF Polisher on cast iron? - 9 replies
I’m never able to get a nice sheen on my cast iron so I was thinking of going the power tool route to buff the wax out and using this: http://t.harborfreight.com/6-inch-compact-palm-polisher-90219.html Would this work? I’m assuming I’d need to use a buffing pad instead and it looks like someone in the comments converted it t...

Incra Wonderfence and feather boards? - 4 replies
I was routing some rabbets in 3/4” maple this weekend and I wanted to put feather boards on the wonder fence to hold them down to the table so I just had to focus on pushing the stock through and against the fence. I tried the Kreg and Rockler feather boards and neither ones slots allowed me to put the FB high enough to clear the stock com...

SawMill Creek - Fun Times - 34 replies
I’ve been a member of LJs since I started woodworking almost 3 years ago now and for about a year I could not figure out why I couldn’t join SMC when I tried to register my usual username that I use on almost every forum wood related or not, mprzybylski. I eventually read somewhere that they only allow real names to be registered so ...

DeWalt DW735 "streaks" on wood - 17 replies
Hey everyone,I have a DeWalt DW735 and it’s a very reliable machine. I have, however, noticed that I sometimes see what look like streaks on wood after planing. I’ll attach an image, but from what I can gather it looks like some of the chips that accumulate on the beds during planing get “pressed” into the wood during t...

Festool TS55 EQ-Plus $500 - 1 reply
Hey everyone,This is a VERY lightly used Festool TS55 track saw. I’m a hobbyist and work alone in my garage. I also maintain my tools very well and this was only used to break down sheet goods here and there. It comes with everything that the original does including a T-Loc systainer storage box, plug-it power cord, 48-tooth carbide tipped...

Grizzly 0604X Table Parallelism Problem - 10 replies
Hey everyone, I’m just about at my wits end here. When I got this jointer over a year ago (almost two years ago now) I was not very good with machine setup and had no idea what I was doing. On top of that, at that point in my very young woodworking hobby, “close enough” was good enough for me. As I’ve matured as a wood...

I’m selling the following items (will not break this up, everything must go together, prices are just for comparison’s sake to retail). I bought this two years ago and never used it. It’s still sitting there un-assembled and I just have not found a time when I was needing to use it as I don’t do many boxes (actually I’ve never made a box :) E...
