I just flattened my board, and I ran into a problem. I am having tear out on the walnut parts. I don’t think the router did this. I used a dish cutting bit from MLCS that stated the bottom was flat. Not exactly. I ended up with a scalloped, or fluted finish. The first side I used my ROS with 80 grit on it to even it out so I could flip...

New Grizzly bandsaw, Now what? - 13 replies
OK, I finally did it, I got a used Grizzly. The thing is, the first time I used a bandsaw was when I turned this one on to see if it ran! That’s right, zero experience on a bandsaw. You might ask yourself “How could he know if it was worth it?”. Well, it’s a Grizzly Z series 14 1/2” (that’s right, 14 1/2) that...

Fix? or salvage what I can? - 22 replies
I have a small shop, and because of this i do all my glue ups right before I leave for the day. Yesterday I glued and clamped my medicine cabinet door. Only 1 as I didn’t have enough clamps to get both. Today I walk in and find one of my clamps slipped off right after I left. I don’t know if you can tell, but that̵...

a little help, please? - 11 replies
I’m about to start a coffered ceiling, 10 ft. elevation, that I am going to have to use veneer on. I told the client several times this should be 1/4 ply, but he doesn’t have enough ply to do the ceiling and wainscot. This is all mahogany that I’m talking about. What I’d like to know, being as the existing substrate is pr...

Titebond II on Bamboo? - 5 replies
Hi folks, and thanks in advance. I am doing several jobs at a house and the owner had a party in which someone stood on the bar rail in their tiki hut, which then broke off. The rail is made of bamboo with a clear finish (varnish) and was attached to the bar by smaller pieces of bamboo perpendicular to the bar, which then went thru another piece...

Definately a Tool Gloat - 7 replies
I wrote in my thread about my new saw how the LOML almost bought me a Craftsman TS before I got my Hitachi, and it was a good thing she didn’t. Well, I didn’t write about the overly long discussion we had after that about how I never liked what she got me, and she always liked what I got her. As usual, I was wrong, but just to be on ...

Tool gloat? You tell me... - 7 replies
All I know is that I’m happy as heck, and can’t stop smiling! I’ve got a “real” table saw. This Hitachi C10fl was on craigslist for $250, so I went to take a look. No rust at all. I checked for flatness, parallel miter slots, motion of raising and bevel cranks, and then vibration. All were perfect. The guy had all o...

Ridgid band saw - BS1400 - 14 replies
I just saw an ad on CL for this saw – $250 . He states he’s had it 4yrs., but hardly used. I researched and got a few reviews, but I don’t know those people! What does everyone think? I don’t have a bandsaw now, but money is tight. Would someone make my mind up? Thanks in advance.
