    I just did the unthinkable.

    Thread Starter: Rick Potter

    Tool junkie heresy. I am getting ready to add a new garage for my old cars, and I have been storing too many tools. Today, I hauled a perfectly good 12" Rockwell single phase 110/220 turret RAS to Goodwill. I just didn't want to fool with selling it. I sure picked a lousy day to do it. ...

    Jorgensen clamps at Lowes

    Thread Starter: Edwin Santos

    Hi, I don't quite know what the story is with the orange Jorgensen bar clamps. At one point I heard the century old company went out of business. Then I heard a Chinese company bought them and planned to resurrect the line. Today I saw a six pack of 6" 3700 series bar clamps at Lowes. They're in...

    How hard is Marquetry?

    Thread Starter: Frederick Skelly

    I'm getting a tad bored and have been thinking about ways to embellish simple pieces. Earlier today, I was reading old issues of FWW and came across an article on Marquetry. * How hard is it to learn Marquetry? I'm not looking to make Mona Lisa's. Maybe just simple geometric designs on boxes....

    Tall Case Oak Clock

    Festool Track Saw--Wow!!!

    Thread Starter: Lisa Starr

    As some of you know, I just purchased a gently use Festool Track Saw with several accessories for 33% of new or a bit less. I've used it for 2 tasks now and all I can say is WOW!. First I had to trim a piece of 3/4" CDX plywood. Even with that nasty stuff, there was no chipping and I loved how...

    Turner's elbow?

    I bought a Jet 10-15 Mini Lathe a couple of years ago. I rebuilt it and could not find an extension for it. I finally got an Excelsior from Rockler
