This may have been covered in another post, but I can’t find anything on it. Over the years and for one reason or another the right side of my saw where the crank for angling the blade is, it has been pulled in and I want to fix it.

Using and applying Wood Veneer - 2 replies
I have some small sheets of Walnut veneer (raw) that was given to me about 8 years ago. It is very dry and a little brittle. What is the best way to trim the veneer after being glued to the substrate? When I cut with the grain, I had no problem. It was when I was cutting across the grain that it started to chip out. Veneer is all new to me, but...

Gelato Table - 5 replies
This is a Children’s table and chair set. I would love to build this set for my Great Granddaughter, but the dimensions don’t convert easily into inches. For example the MDF thickness is listed as 18mm, which converts to 11/16ths. MDF doesn’t come in that thickness in the USA. That will throw all the other measurements o...

Free Singer Sewing Machine and Cabinet - 5 replies
The cabinet and Singer sewing machine, (the sewing machine works as far as I can tell, I don’t sew) were given to me. The cabinet was in rough shape to say the least. The only solid wood in the whole thing were the legs and the front panel. Everything else was particle board (MDF), veneered on outside with what appears to be something like...

New Dust Collector Advice - 4 replies
OK, guys and gals, I just became the proud owner of a Grizzly G1028Z/G1029 (I’m not sure which one I have)DC. I think it’s the G1028Z (see pic below) because it is 110V. Have to research that some more. It’s just too damn cold to go out to the unheated shop. Picked it up from a fella that was moving and didn’t want to mov...
