looking for a new Random orbit sander - 22 replies
I am looking for a new ROS. I currently have a dewalt one that’s about 10 years old and it’s outlived its usefulness. I have carpal tunnel in both my hands and using the one I currently have is really rough on them. I’m looking for one that operates smoothly with minimal vibration. What do you use and what do you recommend?

question about making a pizza peel - 5 replies
A while back one of the woodworking magazines had an article on making a pizza peel. In the article they told how to make a sled to taper the peel with your planer. I thought I had the magazine but I can’t find it. Does anyone know where I might find a copy of this?

water in my air line - 9 replies
I have a dewalt 5 gal air compressor that I have stored in a cabinet under my work table. I ran some PVC from the inside of the cabinet to the outside where I can hook up to it with a hose.

Looking for a bandsaw - 11 replies
I am in the market for a new bandsaw. I know there are lots of LJ’s with the 14” delux Rikon and I was initially looking at getting this one.

fluted dowel rods - 3 replies
I recently purchased the Jessem Dowel jig. So far the jig works great, haven’t really put it through the paces yet but I’m sure it will perform great. I have been looking around the net for fluted dowel stock. Not the pins, those are everywhere. I would like to have some long stock, so I can make the dowels what ever length I want...

clamping dove tails - 4 replies
I recently purchased a leigh dovetail jig, which by the way is a great jig, and fairly simple to use. At least once you learn their process. I made my first set of dovetail drawers this weekend and now need to glue and clamp them together. I was trying to figure out how to go about this and figured instead of trying to reinvent the wheel I wou...

router jig for cutting mortises - 5 replies
I need to cut some mortises to assemble the frame of a door and I don’t have any kind of jig for doing this. I am curious to know what is being used by those who don’t have a dedicated mortising machine. I am thinking about making a jig to do this and would love to see what my fellow jocks are using and maybe “borrow” a...

I currently have an older Jet 6” jointer that I purchased 5 months ago for $250 off craigslist. I got it from the original owner and he said it was about 15 years old. Still works great.

Problem assembling ridgid r4511 table saw - 6 replies
I scored a r4511 from home depot a few weeks ago for $299! Started the assembly and most has gone off without a hitch, thanks to many blogs and reviews here on LJ’s. Last night I was putting on the table extensions and the right one had a sag of about 1/16” and the front edge stuck out about 1/16” from the rest of the table. ...

need help with cabinets - 9 replies
I am building 6 storage cabinets for my church and I am having a hard time finding hinges that will work. The cabinets are 5’ tall, 44” wide and 32” deep. I know, that’s really deep, they even want them stacked to be 10’ tall. Most of the shelving will be used to store rubbermaid type bins, so the size works for ...
