Do I need to pull out the old baseboard around the stairs and lay in a new piece of baseboard at an angle across the stairs and cut in the top pieces w...

What router bit do I need to make these? - 11 replies
I’m unable to buy these two profiles locally, so my choices are to have a custom run of each or buy some router bits and get it done myself. I’m thinking the latter, since I only need about 100 LF of one and 200 LF of the other. Thoughts? Suggestions?

Any way to fix this mess? - 13 replies
I think i’m totally screwed here. I put one coat of Enduro Var, let it dry, sanded it back with 320, and then sprayed a coat of tinted EV with Transtint cordovan hoping I could just spray on the color nice and even. This is what I have now. It looks terribly lighter in the corners and edges where the toned finish has run off. It̵...

Old Ridgid jointer for $200 - yay or nay - 31 replies
This looks like a year 2000ish jointer that looks to be in ok condition. He has come down to $200, but I think this is more worth $120ish, assuming it works and needs just new blades. Again, these can be bought new for about $500 delivered. Thoughts? http://jacksonville.craigslist.org/tls/3876280536.html

I sought out a replacement for my Ridgid Magswitch featherboard that was bought in late 2011, because a numnut twisted one of the knobs like he was tightening down a screw and stripped the plastic inside. The newer make of this model has the same exact model number, but has much smaller magnets that do not hold as well as my original. What...

Scotch Brite Pads for sanding between coats? - 11 replies
I’ve been going through a lot of sandpaper lately and was wondering if I can/should use Scotch Brite pads in between top coats of paint/lacquer/cv. Is this standard practice or is 320 sandpaper the norm? This is what I have been doing for painted projects- 150 sand bare woodprime with BIN220 sand1st topcoat320 light sand2nd topcoat

Old Grizzly Jointer G0543. Asking $1200???? - 8 replies
Just saw a CL ad for this 8” spiral jointer for $1200. My research showed that this unit is probably at least 8 years old and that it was probably purchased for around $1200 back then. I offered $500. Is this guy crazy for asking this much? I see a Grizzly G0490X for $1400 delivered brand new!!

Just saw this in CL. Physically, they both look great. I know the DW733 is at least 10 years old. Not sure about the Ridgid. Is $150 for each of these a good deal? It says OBO. I figure I go over there, bring a few boards and test them out. What the heck. What should I look for in problems on each?

cheap water based primer? - 5 replies
I’ve been using Zinsser BIN as a primer on bare wood, but i’m getting tired of cleaning with ammonia or denatured alcohol. I’m looking to change up to a water based primer, something that costs less that $42 gallon and sands easy and cleans up with water. Something that I can get from Home Depot or Sherwin Williams would be p...

Looking at a Ridgid jointer. Is this the right tool? - 29 replies
I’m looking at this Ridgid jointer – http://www.homedepot.com/p/RIDGID-6-Amp-6-1-8-in-Corded-Jointer-Planer-JP0610/202269174#.UZzZJ8osiM0 I’m hoping to be able to mill straight edges so I can make nice straight 3/4” stock out of 8/4 S2S boards that I buy. Is this jointer really needed on S2S boards? When the top an...

I guess you can call me obsessed at this point. History -I had a Bosch aluminum router table. It was curved on the outside edges slightly down so that when you fed a piece of wood in you had to hold it in the center and on the outfeed, you had to make sure that you didn’t press down on the end, otherwise you would get a curve on your w...

I just spent around $600 on a Bench Dog cast iron table, fence and router plate. To be honest, neither the router plate nor the cast iron table was flat, not even close to flat on either surprisingly, but that’s another story. I just noticed that I can buy a real shaper for just a few bucks more also with a cast iron top. http://www.g...

Bench Dog / Rockler Quality- **BIG THUMBS DOWN** - 31 replies
Ok. So I am about fed up with Rockler/Bench Dog quality. I originally ordered a Rockler HPL router table and fence package. Out of the box, the HPL table was cupped in the middle and anything but flat. Then I tested the blue router plate that came with it with an 18” straight edge, and that wasn’t flat either. It was off by ab...

I just received my Rockler HPL router table and after futzing with it for several hours, could not get the plate flat in the hole. So upon further investigation, I used my 18” straight edge and ran it front to back on the opening and one end of the straight edge catches on the south edge of the rectangular hole on the table. Then I put t...
