    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...

    clifton vs lie nielsen????

    Thread Starter: Roger Benton

    Been wanting a #4-1/2 for a while and decided to save up the cash and buy new. I'd love to hear from any owners of Clifton planes, as that is LN's only competition for my $$$. I'd set it up and use it only for fine smoothing, to complement my #3. So let's hear some opinions from the Clifton folks!

    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?

    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 do you drill 1" holes in polycarbonate sheets

    Thread Starter: Alan Lightstone

    I have a 1/4" thick polycarbonate sheet that I need to drill several 1" holes for makeup air in a router table window. I can't find any information on drilling holes that big. Is a hole saw acceptable? Forstner bit? Is there a special drill bit for this?
