McFeely's Quality - 3 replies
Over the past couple of weeks I’ve been doing some serious cleaning around my shop. As I’ve done this, I’ve found various things buried in corners and nooks that obviously somebody (me) didn’t put away properly and then got ‘lost’. :) I found several boxes of McFeely’s screws from various dates. It lo...

Finally... Workbench Magazine on DVD - 1 reply
Seems Augusta Home Publishing finally decided to put all the issues of Workbench on DVD. I used to love this magazine, but it was hard competing with Wood, Popular Woodworking, and American Woodworker, and the changes they made to it to appeal to the home fixer-upper instead of woodworkers I don’t think helped sales. Anyhow, I’m h...

Dovetail Jigs, comparison? - 7 replies
There have been a few posts recently about dovetail jigs that got me to thinking maybe we should try as a group to put together some sort of comparison of various jigs out there. Any interest in doing this?

I bought the Carter Quick Release to use on my Grizzly G0555 bandsaw and I’m trying to determine how this is supposed to work. With the older Grizzly tensioning system, The tensioner floated and the crossbar and quick release kept it in the saw guides. The new quick release doesn’t have anything along the top, so it obviously would c...

Incra users - 13 replies
As I mentioned in couple of posts, I bought the Incra Wonderfence and router table top this Christmas to go with my table saw and Incra positioner. I have done a few box joints, they went well. However, I hadn’t tackled dovetails yet. I spent time watching the whole video multiple times on doing dovetails and decided this Sunday to tack...

GUHDO Gmaxx saw blades? - 0 replies
The post about what saw blade to purchase had me wondering about the GUHDO Gmaxx saw blades. Has anybody tried these yet? I saw a short video on them and have started to see ADs for them. However, I haven’t put down any hard currency for one. Anybody?

To be honest with you, I’m a bit embarrassed but at the same time maybe it’s a sign that I really need to cleanup my shop. While on the hunt for my studfinder, I started digging deep in the layers of things in one corner of my shop. Under the dozens newspapers that I keep for spreading out on my workbench when I’m spraying a...

Router Power Feed vs. Horizontal Table - 0 replies
Yesterday I did some base moldings with a pretty large bit and eight foot sections of pine on the router table. I realized afterwards that maybe a horizontal table or power feed unit would have helped. I’ll be able to make what I have work, but I realize that I need to either invest in a power feed unit or make a horizontal table for my ro...

Delta Cabinet Saws - 5 replies
While in Woodcraft yesterday, there was a discussion with one of the managers of the store and a couple of us about lack of Delta cabinet saws in the place. He claimed that getting parts for the Unisaws was becoming more difficult and thus that’s why Woodcraft stopped carrying them. It was the first I had ever heard that. Anybody ever h...

Bandsaw Resawing with Cherry - 15 replies
I found somebody who had to take out a Texas Edwards Plateau cherry tree from his ranch. He got a local sawyer to mill it, and I bought the whole lot from him. The wood has been naturally drying for two years, and moisture content is nonexistent thanks to our heat and draught. ;) I bought the Highland Woodslicer blade for my bandsaw. I took a...
