Topic tags/keywords: craigslist lumber

In the event anyone is interested. Seller says $4k worth of lumber for $1500. I have no connection to the seller, just saw it on CL.

If I had the space to store it ‘til I need it, I’d go look, but right now I’ve already got a bunch of pretty wood waiting to become something.

The other thing I’m slowly realizing is that the extra $2.5k in that transaction is what a retail store charges to store that stuff for me ‘til I can use it. So stuff on Craigslist is a bargain only if I have a project that wants it immediately.

Hey Everyone, I have a Grizzly 6” jointer and it seems that I have always had problems getting my boards completely flat. The jointer behaves like the tables are not coplanar. When I run a board across it and move my pressure to the outfeed table I rarely get the cut to continue across the board to the end. If I keep pressure on the infeed side all the way to the end of the pass, I will get contact throughout. More often than not though I will taper or bi-planar surface.

They shouldn’t be coplanar. The out feed side should be offset, the blade should be coplanar to the out feed side of the joiner . You should start a new thread instead of using an old one though.
