Grizzly Coupon Up For Grabs - 2 replies
Hi fellas, I’ve been sitting on a grizzly coupon for a few weeks, and I can tell at this point I won’t be using it. It is for 10% off an order of $300 or more, and expires 4/30/13. I figured I would do as others have done and offer it to someone who will use it. Send me a PM of what machine you want to buy and the code is yours! ...

Antique lathe I got for FREE last week! - 8 replies
A friend of mine who knows I’m into woodworking recently told me that his dad had an old lathe he was looking to get rid of. It belonged to his great-grandfather, and hadn’t been used in years, so they let me have it for free! It is completely unmarked except for the motor’s nameplate. The motor is an old General Ele...

Jocks, I need your help picking out an air compressor. I have been doing some research, but there are a lot of varying applications for compressors and I need some woodworker-specific advice. The initial reason for this purchase is to paint a few interior doors using a spray gun. I see myself using it to spray paint and finishes, run a few di...

What Should I Buy at Sears? - 24 replies
I’ve got a $75 Sears gift card that I received for Christmas. I’m not the biggest fan of Craftsman tools, and I’m not looking to pay much more on top of that $75. So if you were me, what “small” items would you pick up? They do have quite a bit more online than they sell in stores, and they are doing free shippin...

Laguna Bandsaw, Opionions Needed - 45 replies
I might have the opportunity to pick up a Laguna LT16 bandsaw for around $600. I don’t know too much about it (haven’t seen it in person), but the nameplate says LT16 and it appears to be in good shape. It was bought new in 1999. I know the new version sells for $2000 and has a 3hp Baldor motor. I’m not sure of the motor on thi...

Forstner Bit Set? - 24 replies
I’m looking for a decent set of forstner bits to add to my birthday wishlist. I want the standard 16-piece set, and would like the price to be around $40, but no higher than $50. Now I know that none of the sets available in this price range will be exceptional, but I know that many lumberjocks have inexpensive sets and am looking for your...

My First Little Tool Gloat - 3 replies
I just wanted to post a picture of a little Craftsman bandsaw that I picked up off Craigslist this weekend. I know it’s not that exciting of a machine, but it is in excellent condition and he was only asking $45 for it. It came with the manual and a spare blade still in the package, so I didn’t feel like haggling with him; I t...

Question About Seasonal Wood Expansion - 7 replies
Hi guys. So I am starting to build a coffee table based on an “I Can Do That” article from Popular Woodworking back in 2008. I like the look of the table, and it fits my skill level pretty well. You can find the article here, but you have to be registered with the site to view it. Here is my solid model of the table: My concer...
