Can I do this with a miter saw? - 27 replies
SInce I came very close to cutting a couple fingers off with a POS table saw, I freeze up around all table saws. That in itself is probably more dangerous than the POS saw was. So, for now I am going to just stay away from them. I have no issues with any other machine at my disposal, I want to make an end grain cutting board. I don̵...

On the back burner again - 2 replies
I guess this goes in this forum. Doesn’t seem to fit anywhere else. I am almost finished tearing down my wood shop so the space can be rented out. Yesterday I moved most of the lumber. This morning I moved the rest. Here is the table top I was slowly working on, now it is on the back burner again. IMO it is going to be a nice top...

I'm Sad - 0 replies
A while ago I had a thread about combining my wood shop and metal shop spaces. In the end I decided to keep them separate because of the fire hazard. Our business is renting spaces for storage and light industrial businesses. My wood shop is in a unit I figured no one would want. All it really has going for it is it’s size. We were ...

Need advice about shop consolidation - 3 replies
I am downsizing my work areas to free up space to rent out. Right now I have my wood shop in a two bay unit and in truth the space is too big for what I use it for.

Depth of Harbor Freight 60 inch bench - 17 replies
I am completely fed up with my current wobbly too short work table. Plus it is too damn big. I have been reading good reviews of the 60 inch bench from HF and before I go get one this weekend I was wondering about the depth. 20 inches sure does not seem like a lot. Those of you who have these, do you find yourself wanting a deeper bench? ...

Saw Shy - 12 replies
On January 2nd I almost cut two fingers off. They have healed, the scars are irritating but more and more feeling is coming back as time passes. I blamed the POS saw but equal blame should have gone to me. A friend loaned me his rigid contractor saw so I could try it out before making a decision. It is a nice little saw, smooth, and handled ...

Record #7...Did I do well? - 6 replies
I don’t know anything about this jointer, except that it appears to be in pretty good condition. It is obviously cleaned up as I suspect there are some very shallow rust pitting near the blade opening. I paid $75 dollars for this and 2 13CF scuba tanks that are only 2 years old. The tanks are in immaculate condition and worth some cas...
