    15" Wide Belt Sander won't turn off

    Thread Starter: Josh Falcon

    Centroid Acorn

    How would you hog out these open mortises?

    Thread Starter: Randall J Cox

    I am building four patio chairs out of white oak (see pic as example). The arms are a full 2"x4" all the way around, top/bottom and uprights. I have bandsawed 4" in on 4" high wood for the open mortise (see pic) where the arms connect at 90 degrees. My issue now is how to hog out the center part...

    Seasonal Spigots

    Candy couldn't work one of this type valves. My solution was to make a wrench from a piece of aluminum. It form fitted over the lever and gave good leverage.
