Slow speed grinder MacGuyverying - 1 reply
Has anyone ever tried to DIY a slow speed grinder? I have an antique B&D benchtop. Would it be possible to hook it to one of those router speed controllers? Or have I taken leave of my good senses. I was just wondering if anybody had tried, or knew of such. Seems a shame to buy another grinder when there’s one just sitting there.

Any Disston collectors out there? - 2 replies
If anyone is in the Birmingham area over the weekend, these guys are selling a ton of antique tools. More handsaws than I have ever seen in my life, as well as loose handles. Also a veritable trove of the power tools of yesteryear. I just thought I’d pass the link on, for people who have more money than I. On a non-tool note, they also...

To SawStop or nay? - 40 replies
Okay, this is something I never thought I would say: I am about to come into about $10,000. I assume I will be making some shop upgrades. My question is this: Should I go ahead and buy a SawStop or will the Bosch 4100 suffice? I guess I just need to know if a SawStop really is all it’s cracked up to be? Or will I be paying an extra $100...

Dadgum Skil miter bar - 1 reply
Does anybody happen to know if there is a way to get a larger miter bar that will fit Skil’s ridiculous T slot? Or am I just going to have to grind a few carriage bolts and pray? I’d like to get some sleds on this thing or attach some jigs, but it only came with one little puny miter gauge on about 8” of bar. Any help would ...

I'm hoping someone can share skills - 3 replies
I learn visually, so I have a hard time looking at manuals and visually layouts. I bought a Woodriver half blind dovetail jig a while back, and was wondering if anyone could explain it on almost a simpleton’s level. Or find a video, cause I can’t. I thought I’d followed the setup instructions pretty well, but I can’t s...

Wood in the Southeast - 1 reply
Hey gang, I feel I might have posted this before, but couldn’t find it, so my apologies for asking again: Does anyone know a good source of hardwood in Alabama? I’ll get sent to debtor’s prison if I keep using Woodcraft. ...

Oh happy day - 1 reply
A really nice guy. I was astounded he was so approachable to everybody. I hope he comes back so I can take the class. I also hope to win the lottery so I can buy more stuff. http://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af322/tbreland1975_album/IMG00079.jpghttp://i1020.photobucket.com/albums/af322/tbreland1975_album/IMG00080.jpghttp://i1020.photobuc...

Plunge router base-Craftsman - 3 replies
Hey gang, I have an old Craftsman 315.25070, and I was wondering if anybody knew of a plunge base that would fit it. I really don’t have the money to buy another whole router right now. Thanks, ...

Yet another dust collection post - 3 replies
I am also looking to add dust collection to my shop, only with poverty in mind. It’s about 500CF, but I’m never really just in there sawing for hours on end. I was wondering if it would just be easier to stick a 1 micron bag on my tablesaw and get a smallish air filter. It seems like all the heavy duty ones are a lot more machine ...
