    With all of the negativity and political stuff going on with the Covid-19 virus it is time to look at the humorous side of things. Feel free to add more, but keep it clean or it will be deleted.

    grab hook or slip hook

    Thread Starter: Dave Fritz

    I'm looking at getting a pair of bucket hooks: https://www.bxpanded.com/BX-bucket-hooks I like the fact they can be removed when not needed. I will use it mostly for lifting logs and pulling them out of the woods as well as sometimes lifting heavy items. Most of the time I'll use a chain which...

    Paint booth fan?

    Thread Starter: Leigh Betsch

    I am converting my downdraft sanding table to a duel purpose downdraft/paint booth. Basically I have a 3'x5' downdraft bench on wheels with an old furnace blower to draw the sanding dust thru the table and out thru furnace filters. With my sander hooked to my Festool dust extractor, it does a...

I really wanted to get the 3HP. model, but I only have one 30-amp 240V circuit available & my dust collector is currently run...

    Help Me Pick a Plow Plane or Is It a Plough Plane

    Thread Starter: Thomas McCurnin

I'll also be using it for grooving a post, usually about 1.5" x 1.5" is typical, again to accept a panel for frame and panel construction. It needs to go both directions,...

    I hate rusty saws, but...

    Thread Starter: Richard Hutchings

    I just saw an ad for 7 rusty saws for $25 and I may not be able to resist. One has the thumbhole but broken horn. It might be worth buying the whole lot but I'll have to get better at cleaning them up. I hate the mess. Hopefully someone will buy them before I decide to bite the bullet.

    Legs for a midcentury bench

    Sawstop Rails

    36” rails with the left extension removed gives you an approximate 48” rip capacity. This saw was damaged and the left side
