    Help me decide on a table saw

    Thread Starter: Scott Winter

    All, Well I am 2 weeks from moving into my new home where my 2 car garage (approx 20'x20') will be my new "man cave". I'm probably going to dedicate the one side for my woodworking area, and the other side will be for whatever I need it for at that time (working on cars, additional space if I'm...

    15" Wide Belt Sander won't turn off

    Thread Starter: Josh Falcon

    Hi All. Trying to troubleshoot my 15" Extrema wide belt sander's "off" issue. Not a ton of stuff online for this exact machine but the Grizzly G0819 appears to be effectively the same machine.

    Guitar build number three...

    Thread Starter: Jim Becker

    Tele at heart when it comes to the metrics, but I wanted to do something that was "mine" to go with the neck/headstock design I had been noodling with.

    3rd Stall 13-15' x 52' setup

    Thread Starter: Jon Steffen

    Our 24x26 garage currently has my 15' tracksaw table, miter stand, 2 festool cross cut tables, family stuff, kids stuff. Our minivan and truck get parked outside, ALL YEAR LONG. We live in Wisconsin, so snowblowing with 2 cars in the driveway is a pain. Not having a tablesaw is a pain. When i...

    My Camber Blade Round Tuit Finally Came

    Thread Starter: Jim Koepke

    OK, a couple of times I have said this would get done. Here it is in all of its rambling words and pictures. Sharpening is one of those things that gives rise to many opinions and heartfelt debate over preferred methods. There is also a lot of discussion of cambering blades. My experience is...

    Shop Cabinet Construction advice

    Make them simple boxes with no toe kick. That makes all the joints the same. Then the base is separate and cut to match an uneven floor that slopes.
