Yesterday my neighbor calls me in a panic to tell me how his breaker box caught on fire and wanted me to come up and see about getting a new one installed. As you can see from the picture the box got HOT, Chernobyl hot people! Those that work with electricity can tell immediately what was wrong, for those that do not allow me to expla...

Benchtop Drill Press suggestions - 9 replies
I have a friend that would like to purchase my older model Delta Bench-top Drill press which got me considering if I wish to upgrade. While I do have a Jet floor model Drill press I have liked having my bench-top set with a pilot hole bit. My only real gripe is the table does not have a crank to raise and lower it. Merely pull up and down and...

Men are Deep thinkers - 8 replies
I mowed the lawn today, and after doing so I sat down and had a cold beer.The day was really quite beautiful, and the drink facilitated some deep thinking.My wife walked by and asked me what I was doing, and I said ‘nothing’.The reason I said ‘nothing’ instead of saying ‘just thinking’ is because she then woul...

Anyone know if a quick release for the drill depth adjuster is available for a JET 14” floor model? Turning two nuts that want to jamb gets old when you have to change depth alot.

Came across a excellent find, FREE - 8 replies
Always looking for ways to store more stuff in a smaller space I was given 5 cabinets, 4 drawers each, roller bearing drawer slides, and full of nuts, bolts, washers, etc etc. The only wood in this project was making the bases for the cabinets and putting them on wheels. It is like having a mini hardware store in the shop. LOL!

Good 10" sawblade buy - 5 replies
I found a 2 pack of sawblades by DeWalt at Lowes today for under 34 USD. They are only general purpose blades, one is 32T the other 60T. Tried them out ripping some 2×4’s for louvers for four doors I am making and the 32T worked great in the tablesaw. For those that are like me and dabble in a little of everything this is economi...

Iraq Humor - 5 replies
Having been asked by several members to post some humor from Iraq here are some quotes made by me over the radio during my time in the desert. Read and enjoy. 1. For the love of Moses and all the prophets what are you doing? Talking them to death? 2. To the idiot that is showing a white t-shirt on a stick. If you do not put that away ...

Have you ever heard the doorbell ring late at night, or during the day, stopped what you were doing to walk to the door to be confronted by a nosy neighbor, salesperson, or general pest? With today’s technology for less than $100 you can get a camera and a cheap T.V. and then see who is at the door. But why stop at just ignoring this invasion...

Source for Replacment Lathe Motor - 6 replies
My Father recently gave me a JET1014 mini lathe which had sat dormant since 2002, made in 2001. Having replaced the capacitor it still spins slow if at all. For giggles I took it apart and blew it out, no corrosion was seen and nothing came out. As it is a second lathe I have no immediate need for a replacement but am hoping somone knows some...

Business license for P/T work at home - 24 replies
For those that work at home I was hoping to get some advice on what you did to start up, even if part time which is what this will be. I have no ambitions to make a mint nor do I honestly believe I will make enough money to quit my day job. Mostly I wish to sell what I make online, legally, and have some mad money for when I want to get equipm...

Spalted Maple - 6 replies
Someone gave me 4 sticks of spalted maple some time long ago…... Present day I am looking at it wondering how it might look as a pen. My issue is that this is a lightweight and soft wood. To get an idea of how soft I made two pen blanks, one of this spalted maple and one from cheap white wood #2 from the box. The white wood turns bette...

Bathroom Cosmetic Mirror - 0 replies
Recently I remodeled the bathroom, such a fun project no?, and as I am putting the final touches on this project I looked over the old fixtures. The Cosmetic Mirror that bi folds from the wall (ask your wife but ONLY if you want her to tell you to get one and put it up). The old one has a single swivel that is garbage at best in design. In ta...

Drill Press cabinet under the table - 2 replies
I currently have a decent cabinet made to go under MOST of my JET full size drill press but am interested in ideas and pictures of such cabinets anyone may have. I rarely drill anything deeper than 12-18 inches so the current cabinet is on wheels and has a height of 28 inches. Long ago I remember seeing an article showing a small cabinet that ...
