    Toolchest Lid-Mounted Tools

    Thread Starter: Stanley Covington

    Sawmill Creek is flowing sluggishly under the ice today, so I thought I would post something. Some of you may recall my mentioning in a post a year or so ago that I was reworking the methods of mounting tools inside the lid of my old toolchest. My day job has kept me very busy since then, but I...

    The “time for some levity” thread just makes my day. I have a buddy that posts a joke a day, which I also love, and I thought maybe you would all want to share some of your favorite jokes. Here is one to start:

    Piping new-to-me DC

    Thread Starter: Anthony Whitesell

    I picked up a Grizzly 2HP G1029 DC with the 6" inlet. I have an Oneida cyclone in boxes I picked up years ago, but have not figured out how to make the head height work yet. In the meantime, I have this to work with. I am planning to rebuild the stand and mount to remove the 90 degree flex...

    Oneway 1640 or Robust Sweet 16

    Thread Starter: Mark Woodmark

    Thinking about a new lathe. Its between a Oneway 1640 or a Robust Sweet 16. The reviews rave about the Robust lathes more so than the Oneway, but the Oneway is cheaper and for what it's worth the Oneway is heavier

    Found new norton washita stones

    Thread Starter: Andrew Pitonyak

    They have a limited supply of new norton washita stones so I ordered one. Skinny, 8 x 3 x 1/2, probably meant for one of their sharpening systems, but I wanted to give one a try. https://www.sharpeningsupplies.com/Norton-Washita-Arkansas-Stone-P1880.aspx Will let you know if I like it after...

    Price point for a good square

    Thread Starter: John Strong

    Hi Everyone, I've been working with a aluminum speed square, and some of my grandfathers old framing squares (which I can't imagine are still square given how many times i've personally seem them fall onto the concrete floor of our garage growing up) I'm a little lost on how you evaluate if a...

    Trotec Exhaust Recommendations

    I didn't buy any of their hose, so can't speak to the issue with it. I just picked up some foil dryer vent hose from Lowe's here. My runs are all pretty

    Oneway 1640 or Robust Sweet 16

    FWIW, I have owned a Oneway 2436 since the mid 90's and have turned a lot of bowls. It is a great lathe. I am also a personal friend of Brent English,

    Used Router Table: Fair offer?

    There very well could have been limited inventory already on items that may have been chosen to go away, so there's little incentive to discount. That

    Hearing Protection with Bluetooth

    I like the Isotunes Pro 2.0 that I have which replaced their previous model I used for several years. They are noise cancelling as well as Bluetooth.
