branding iron - 6 replies

I sometimes use a branding iron to sign my work, I have the Rockler electric branding iron. It works well and I have no issues with it. I ordered one for a woodworking buddy Christmas gift and they sent me the non electric version that requires a torch by mistake. I’m wondering if I should return it, and reorder the electric version, If...

Need help finding an after market spring for my Delta 8" Jointer - 2 replies

I have a Model 37-380 8” Jointer and the spring that controls the blade guard is broken and unusable. Was a time when Delta would have it in stock, no more. All the parts sources I find online say the part is obsolete and no longer available. It’s a spring. Surely one of you resourceful woodworkers have solved this problem. Any ...

Replacing the bearings on my Grizzly bandsaw - 9 replies

I’ve had an 18” grizzly band saw for about 25 years. The bearings have gotten pretty noisy and I want to replace them, I have no clue how to accomplish this task. I bought the replacement bearings and can imagine the type of tool to pull the old ones but I don’ really know how to go about this. So I have two questions you al...

Shapton Stones have dissapeared, now what - 2 replies

I have been using Shapton Glass Stones for several years now and love them. My 1000 grit stone is finally wearing a bit thin and I’m thinking it’s time to get a replacement. But…. they have dissapeared, on back order or out of stock every where I look. I understand the company has been sold. Does anyone have the inside sco...

Can I soften cured CA glue? - 12 replies

It is my practice, not sure why, to put a few drops of CA glue in the screw holes for hinges and other hardware on final assembly. Not sure if someone recommended it or if it’s my own idea. My thinking is that it helps protect the wood from the cutting action of the screw threads over time preventing them from loosening. Anyway, I have...

Universal width Resaw fence - 13 replies

To eliminate the hassles of constant blade changing, I have two band saws, one with a narrow set of blades for curved work and one dedicated to resawing. It was still a bit of a pain to change the height of the resaw fence to keep the upper bearings close to the material for a variety of width boards. I don’t remember where I saw this idea but...

Where should I drive to for great Black Walnut at a good price - 5 replies

Here in southern california, great walnut at a good price is… impossible to get. I’ thinking about a road trip to Missouri? Iowa? Where? And picking up a few (3-4) hundred board feet. I’m thinking a sawmill moreso than a retail lumber yard. Where should I go? A recommendation for a Specific person or mill would be greatly...

Banners blocking my view - 15 replies

I’m having a hard time believing the site is doing this on purpose. I understand the need but these are no ordinary pop ups or sideline banners. These banners are (a) blocking out parts of the pictures. (B) there is no way to move them out of the way or close them. They are blocking me (members?) from seing sometimes critical aspects o...

Has anyone improved the Veritas Mk.II Honing Guide System? - 4 replies

I’ve been successfully using the Mk.II for several years. I like this jig a lot. Sharpening and honing take quite a bit longer than free hand sharpening but I’m getting my chisel and plane irons really sharp with the Mk.II. I’m sure if I devoted the time and focus I could perfect the free hand method and save time. But, I’m very happy w...

I have three big trees that must be removed as they have become a safety risk. (Falling down)Here are photographs of the trees. They are some kind of pine I think. The trunks are about 80” in circumference and the branches are around 36” each. There is a lot of wood here. Does anyone know what the wood is? If it’s useful can I sor...

What kind of hinge do I need? - 3 replies

I’m building a Greene and Greene Blanket Chest It’s pretty much done. The lid breadboard ends protrude ¼” from the hinge edge of the top. Hopefully the pics explain it better. I’m afraid the hinges I planned to use don’t allow much meat on the outer most screw when I move the knuckle out far enough for the ends of the breadboard ends to clear...

Saw bench - 1 reply

My work bench for 25 years was an old bookshelf, turned on its side with two 3/4” slabs of plywood for a top and a record quick release vise. Then I built a Roubo bench. Wow, I can’t believe how much better a solid, unmovable bench works. I also wanted to build a Moxon vise and my wife got me the Benchcrafted hardware for Christma...
