    Volkswagon Mechanics Talk To Me

    Thread Starter: Keith Outten

    I recently acquired this 1967 VW dune buggy knowing that it would be a bit of a project before I could get it on the road. It runs good just needs a tune up but I will need to replace some parts here and there to get it where it needs to be. Most of the parts are on order, new brake shoes, stuff...

    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? Whatís 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...

    I think my zero turn mower is cursed!

    Thread Starter: Brian Elfert

    I bought a used 2019 Grasshopper diesel zero turn mower with 189 hours on it last summer. I had all kinds of problems with it initially including a starter that didn't always turn over.

    Thread Starter: Jonathan Jung

    I thought about posting this to the business section, because I'd really like input from professionals who use their shop as a business. For those of you who make $ or even a living making furniture or cabinets, how long does it take for a sliding table saw to pay for itself compared to a track saw...

    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...

    Dust Extractors - Festool competitors

    Thread Starter: Matt Day

    Going off the CT26 v Midi thread, who is the competition for Festool? Flex, Metabo, Bosch, Makita, Dewalt? Iím looking for a lower cost alternative to Festool that still performs well. It will be used for a future track saw, hand sanders, routers, etc. No big chip producers. Iím okay adding a...

    Best wax

    I think I read somewhere the only wax "harder" than carnuba is lac wax, the stuff they take out of de-waxed shellac. You can get lac wax from

    Delta Unisaw Blade Guard

    I use a shark guard and have found that a low fence in conjunction with a bench dog offset push stick from Rockler lets me do most narrower rips with

    Delta Unisaw Blade Guard

    Andrew, I feel the same way. In theory, they're great and I've always wanted one but I honestly don't see how an overhead blade guard adds a layer of

    Dust Extractors - Festool competitors

    I discussed this in a previous thread. I have a Festool Kapex and the dust collection with a conventional shop vac was not completely effective. I checked
