Drill Doctor and the Kreg pocket hole drill bit - 23 replies

I’ve never used the Drill Doctor or sharpened a drill bit for that matter, but I’ve recently found out that my Kreg drill bit has lost its sharpness. Happened awfully quick too, IMO, because I must have only drilled 3 dozen holes through soft doug fir. Maybe because I was using an impact wrench when I should have used my drill driver...

Building a vetrine, aka. glass display case, for a clarinet - 5 replies

So I’ve recently been commissioned to build a vetrine, or glass display case for a 100+ year old clarinet. Basically, it’s a vertical column that is glass on 4 sides so I’ll be building the base and top. Using 1/4” glass fused at the corners, I’m concerned about my base being strong enough to support the weight and ...

Considering Air Filtration system for the shop, but riddle me this... - 9 replies

So I’ve been looking at Delta, Jet and ShopFox air filtration systems as well as plans to build my own. They all filter the air and blow it back into the shop. I’m no expert here but I got to wondering… why not vent the air outside? I’ve got a wide area next to the shop and no neighbors, just a big field. Do I even nee...

What to do with the Forrest WWII that came with my table saw purchase? - 16 replies

Obviously, use it right? Well, I bought a PM66 TS for a song, and it came with this ridiculously gunked up Forrest WWII blade (thin kerf.) It’s completely useless but since it’s a quality blade, I’m sure it’s worth cleaning and up and sharpening right? Guess I should be calling Forrest or a blade sharpener but thought I&#...

Checking out a Grizzly G1182 jointer later today. Anyone have one? - 11 replies

Seems to get good reviews. This 6” Grizzly jointer I’m looking at tonight is about 10 yrs old and used lightly in a hobbyist’s garage. He’s asking $225 and it comes with an HTC mobile base. Not sure how low I can get him down but at full asking price, I think it’s still reasonable as long as it’s ready for wor...

CAL Berkeley Fans - The Wooden Duck is selling off wood from the old stadium - 2 replies

Not a fan myself, but I cant pass up on picking up some of this historic wood. Mostly bleachers material with the row/seat numbers proudly showing on half of the wood. The pieces with the numbers on them cost about twice as much. Starting at $5/ft for some historic and old-growth Alaskan Yellow Cedar, many with the fading blue or gold CAL colors...
