    Vintage Martin T75 restoration

    Thread Starter: Patrick Walsh

    So I have a opportunity to purchase the above machine for a fair deal from my employer. I am aware of the phenolic guides being pop riveted I the the sliding table along with not availible for replacement. So my question is as follows to those in the know with regard to the phenolic ways....

    1982 Martin T-23

    Thread Starter: Patrick Walsh

    And so it seems it begins again. The T-75 isn’t even technically done and I have a new project. I’m not gonna go all buggy on this one “just yet” if ever. I will 100% go all the way through the machine and make sure it is 100% fully functional to the 9’s. 10’ for me if it was a term. If anything...

    Complete set of Lie Nielsen bench planes

    Thread Starter: Thomas Wilson

    Some aficionados here haunt the antique auction sites. Some buy premium brands, either Lie-Nielsen or Veritas. Some buy functional knock-offs, like Wood River. Some buy seriously inexpensive hard to tune brands. I fell in with Lie-Nielsen 20 years ago and have been satisfied with the quality...

    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...

    Is a 12" jointer needed?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    Thinking of buying either the powermatic or the grizzly 12" parallogram jointer. I do have a planer also, so will the planer take out any cuping in the face of the board then just use the jointer on the sides? I've always wondered why they typically only make 6 or 8" jointer and I thought maybe...

    Easing corners on furniture

    Thread Starter: michael dilday

    I bought a Woodriver corner easing plane from woodcraft. It is a really nifty small plane that looks like it would be great and when it works it does a great job however... It keeps splitting the wood. It seems like if I go against the angle of the grain it is worse but even if i favor the grain...

    Dewalt hole saw mandrel

    Lennox, Dewalt, Klein, Ideal, GB, and any other pro grade hole saws are all interchangeable. Some of the goofy stuff sold at the big box stores aren't

    Baby Cribs

    I built a crib about 7 years ago and did a lot of research before building it. The safety standards are there for good reason and reflect many years of

    It is always the easy stuff that bites you

    Was the copper a copper pipe or was it copper tubing?

    Minwax Poly still good?

    I will also sometimes take old Minwax poly and thin it down. I will then use it like a sanding sealer on punky wood. I've even wet sanded with it to

    State B4 spindle sander

    I figured out my spindle. It is the older style with a taper similar to but not a morse #2. Has a hollow tube with a threaded drawbar to hold it in place.
