    What do you do with your sawdust?

    Thread Starter: PHILIP MACHIN

    Hey all, I live in a suburban area and we're only serviced once a week and allowed 1 normal sized garbage can of trash per week. I was curious what my fellow city-dwelling woodworking friends do with their hobby generated wood waste? I was thinking of buying another large trash can just to empty...

    Sharpening Mortise Chisels

    Thread Starter: Thomas McCurnin

    Featherboards

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    Getting into Sketchup

    Thread Starter: Josko Catipovic

    I'd like to move from paper to CAD as my woodworking evolves. It looks like Sketchup is popular among hobby woodworkers. Here are a couple of basic questions: 1. I see on Sketchup site they offer free, 'shop' and 'pro' versions. The 'pro' at $300/yr is not in the cards for me, but what exactly do...

    Need help getting keyed chuck off Delta Drill press

    Thread Starter: Jim Tobias

    I have a Delta 17-925 drill press that I have had for many years. Still works great....but I recently ordered a Llambrich keyless chuck to put on it to make changing bits, etc. easier and faster. I have tried the "tapping on all side " method but cannot get it to drop out. I am probably missing...

    No dongle available and the seller implied that it didn't need one, just have to get the configuration settings in EZCad right, and it'll work. Disregarding

    Too thick arbor?

    Good question.. I've tried 4 blades (2 used, 2 new) and my dado stack. I experienced the same symptoms in each of those cases... Got each of them

    Air Filtration

    Make sense, LEDs do not strobe as fluorescents do (I've seen some that do, but that's a power supply issue.. or more commonly, dimmer switch).
