    new bandsaw wont' cut straight

    Thread Starter: Forrest Gon

    My first bandsaw, a new rikon 10-3061, set it up according to the manual and various youtube tutorials such as Alex Snodgrass's method (align the blade, tension the blade, thrust bearings and side guides) Now the issue is: the saw just won't cut straight, it will pull the wood off the fence...

    Teach us about rasps and floats

    Thread Starter: Keegan Shields

    There is a ton of info on the web about the more common woodworking hand tools (chisels, planes, saws) but what about rasps and floats? What’s the difference in application? How do these tools fit into the tool continuum from axe to sandpaper? What brands and models would you recommend to...

    Help Me Pick a Plow Plane or Is It a Plough Plane

    3-Phase vs Single Phase Equipment

    Thread Starter: Michael Zerance

    My new location does not have 3-phase service so I will be installing a phase converter to power my sanders, spray booth fan, and some other smaller pieces of equipment.

    Nailed It!

    Thread Starter: Jim Koepke

    One of my habits (not going to debate whether it is good or bad) is to keep extras of many things. This has mostly been made stronger by living miles from the nearest retail establishment of any kind. A round trip to town is going to take up at least an hour or two, not to mention the cost of...
