    I'm finally building my boat.

    Thread Starter: Malcolm Schweizer

    I lofted the station moulds for her about six years ago, but we moved to a place with less room to build a boat, so she went on hold. I have borrowed a place to build and am going to make all the bits and pieces in my shop, then assemble them in the borrowed space. This is going to be a slow...

    Craftsman at Lowe's and Ace

    Thread Starter: Ole Anderson

    Anybody else get the tinglies now when walking into Lowe's and seeing row on top of row of red Craftsman tools, chests and equipment? Not that I am such a fan of their stuff, just that it brings back good memories of trolling through the Sears tool department years ago. Even my local Ace carries...

    Dust Bin Sensor Completed

    My first jointer. New or used?

    Thread Starter: Jason Buresh

    Hello. I am looking to purchase my first jointer, but could use some advice. I have used a jointer in high school and at my uncle's woodshop, but have never owned one. I went to school to fix industrial machinery, so working on a used machine doesn't intimidate me, as I used to work on machines...

    How to improve jointer dust collection

    Thread Starter: Alan Schaffter

    I posted this on another forum awhile back, but thought more folks might be interested: I always had what I thought was inadequate dust collection from my Delta DJ-20 jointer, despite using 6" duct and a 3 hp DC. Though not excessive, I always had chips coming off the sides of the cutter and...
