    Having tools delivered by freight truck?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    The neighbors have a forklift, but I hate having to ask them since a lot of people do. If I pay the 50 dollar lift gate fee does that mean they're going to just drop it off in front of the shop or can I at least get the guy to roll it just inside the door of the shop? I know a lot of those third...

    Featherboards

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    Anyone use these? I was ripping some 8ft long boards and noticed the last 12" of board was pulling away from the fence before it went through the blade. Now I haven't built my outfeed table and the thought of using those roller stands doesn't really appeal to me. Since i dont have someone to tail...

    Sharpening Mortise Chisels

    Thread Starter: Thomas McCurnin

    In advance of a hand tool joinery class, I will be expected to use and sharpen chisels. No problem with bench chisels, I have taken a sharpening class and bench chisels fit nicely into my Veritas MKII honing guide. But to my surprise, a mortise chisel is too thick to fit into the MKII. So...

    Low speed for 12" disk sander

    Thread Starter: Pete Staehling

    Okay so I have been happily using my Harbor Freight 12" disk sander for a few years. I never really gave it much thought, but it is really hard to not burn cherry when sanding it. I developed the habit of doing some small sanding operations when the sander was spinning down and realized that...

    Assembly table

    Coronavirus _ worried?

    Misinformation is worse than no information, particularly about things like this where there is a clear lack of good information. The death rate may

    Coronavirus _ worried?

    The death rate is approximated as 2%. Contrast that with typical flu of 0.1% and coronavirus is 20x worse death rate than the flu.

    Dust collector for table saw?

    Well, this should start some conversation :-) A fundamental of dust collection is to collect the fine dust at the source to keep it from becoming airborne.
