Outfeed table - 18 replies
I have been wanting to make an outfeed table for my new Baileigh saw ever since I got it. Some LJ members shared some of theirs which I really liked, but I didn’t want to spend a ton of money. So, I went to a reuse store, and found some desks that had been given to them from the college. It just happens to be about a week before all the st...

bandsaw problems - 16 replies
I decided to make my first bandsaw box the other day. I used a 3/8in blade. When I cut the drawer out, I felt like the kerf was too wide so I switched to a 1/4in blade. I noticed when I opened it up, the welded part was bent pretty bad, almost a 90degree bend. I straightened it out by hand and thought it was straight, but now my bandsaw is vibra...

Air filtration - 37 replies
I was thinking about getting an air filtration unit for my shop, but wanted to know if they make a big difference and are really worth it. It is impossible for me to keep my shop clean right now. I would have to dust like twice a day. It’s not only from my woodworking dust, we live on a gravel road so I get that dust too. So, for those of ...

how much for a rigid tablesaw? - 60 replies
I am trying to sell my rigid tablesaw. I am asking $375 and willing to come down to $350. Is this a fair price or am I asking too much? I have had 3 people interested, but they didn’t want to pay that much. It comes with everything(miter, wrench, fence, etc.) It is in great shape, nothing wrong with it. I am also offering the sleds and jig...

dust collector hose - 48 replies
I need to run some line from my dust collector to my tools. I would like to do 4in. I can’t beleive how expensive it is! I’ve looked into PVC, and the price is alot better. What about corrugated pipe? That would be the easiest/cheapest way to go, but I wasn’t sure if the currugation would cause too much friction. I looked into ...

Extra grizzly coupon anyone?? - 16 replies
I am finally going to buy the 17in grizzly bandsaw!! I have been looking on CL forever, but can’t find a decent one. I am really excited but I HATE paying full price for anything. I know they offer coupons, but I don’t have any right now and was wondering if anyone had one they didn’t plan on using. Thanks!

I thought I had finished buffing out an application of laquer, but after putting some paste wax on it, it really brought out some defects that I would really like to fix. Is there any way to remove the wax without removing the laquer? Or can I just sand without removing the wax? I really really don’t want to start over since I have already...

Increasing CFM in air compressor - 28 replies
I have a 6 gal PC air compressor. I would like to be able to use it with a spray gun for finishing, but I’m pretty sure the CFM is to low (2.6 @90PSI). I really don’t want to have to wait on it to fill back up, or listen to it run all the time. I saw in a magazine where someone made a really neat air tool station that included a port...

Don't throw that away!! - 42 replies
I was messing around in my shop the other night, and started thinking of some of the things I do to save money. I thought of a few things that most people would throw away, that I keep and repurpose. Then that made me think of LJ and I thought it would be a good thread to start so we could all share our money saving ideas. Since I am putting mor...

finishing wet/green wood - 9 replies
So I finally started my first log project. I figured I should start small so I am making my daughter a step stool. I cut the tree down that I am using about a week or 2 ago so it is still wet. (I have been told it is cotton wood) Are there any restrictions to putting a finish on green wood? It has been peeled for a few days so the outside feels ...
