    1982 Martin T-23

    Thread Starter: Patrick Walsh

    And so it seems it begins again. The T-75 isn’t even technically done and I have a new project. I’m not gonna go all buggy on this one “just yet” if ever. I will 100% go all the way through the machine and make sure it is 100% fully functional to the 9’s. 10’ for me if it was a term. If anything...

    Is there money in woodworking?

    Complete set of Lie Nielsen bench planes

    Thread Starter: Thomas Wilson

    Some aficionados here haunt the antique auction sites. Some buy premium brands, either Lie-Nielsen or Veritas. Some buy functional knock-offs, like Wood River. Some buy seriously inexpensive hard to tune brands. I fell in with Lie-Nielsen 20 years ago and have been satisfied with the quality...

    Are grizzly machines good?

    Thread Starter: Travis Conner

    I noticed the newer stuff seems to be a good bit cheaper than the other brands, powermatic, jet and delta. Is it a cheaper knock off? I know for the helical cutter heads, I believe they have their own in house brand of head.

    Nail length

    I agree with Mark. As to the brad nailing,take a look at a strip of nails. They have a chisel tip ,sharp on two sides. The nail will usually glance away

    What do you do with your sawdust?

    I had a guy that used to want hardwood only material from the dust collector. He used it for fertilizer or something. He hasn't been in touch so it's
