    You are right, the tops on a Northfield jointer are dovetailed into the brackets that adjust the height. They are not adjustable but the head is. It could be loosened and shimmed. Now, is the two...

    It looks like there is a block of wood with 8 sides in the middle of it and the legs just have a plain butt joint with screws in it. The screws look to be countersunk with round top hole plugs...

    About all you can do with a plane is set to cut very light and run the plane in a diagonal direction so it's more slicing the knot than a direct cut. If it were me I would sneak in a belt sander when...

    Something doesn't sound right. Either the powerfeed wheels have gotten hard or you didn't have sufficient pressure on them. You could have bogged down the shaper but it shouldn't have allowed a board...

    I wouldn't alter the pulleys on the compressor. The larger you increase the pulley on the motor the more stress you put on the motor. Then it's designed to run at a certain RPM and if you put a...

    You could use a sealer if you wanted to but not standard shellac. Standard shellac has a natural wax which is incompatible with waterborne finishes. You could use a de-waxed shellac such as sealcoat...

    Primer has a lot more solids in it than paint so it will build a thickness quicker. It also is easier to sand between coats which makes the substrate smoother for the paint.

    A yard of cement is literally a block of concrete 3'x3'x3'. At 4" thick you could get 9- 3'x3' sections of floor or 81 square feet. At 6" you could get 54 square feet. Unless your soil is very soft...

    Polyurethane has a slight yellow cast to it when you apply it and continues to yellow as it ages. This would look bad on the white. You would probably be better off using some rattle can clear...

    If it were me I would tint a gray primer as near black as I could and level the finish with that and then spray it with an oil based satin black paint. You would probably have to go to a real paint...

    I think you would get a better quality finish by brushing it. Rattle can paint dries so fast it's difficult not to get lap marks. If you use an oil based enamel the quality of the finish alone is...

    The blo won't alter the color very much but the garnet shellac certainly would. That white sapwood would end up looking pink. The waterlox finish would do more in not altering the color of the wood....

    I don't believe I would use the lamp oil. Any I've seen was primarily kerosene. The MSDS on both products is not very clear what they are though. A finishing oil in normally a hardening oil such as...

    It's fahrenheit for me. I'm near Dallas TX so it doesn't get that cold very often.

    Can you post a picture of the finish you are having trouble with. Sometimes finishes have problems with compatibility with stains or other products you used but having the stain dry for months...

    The auto drain isn't going to do anything that you couldn't do yourself. The tank would still need to be tilted to where the drain hole is. Is the compressor oilless? you could just prop it over to...

    An air compressor draws a lot of power at startup. If you are a long distance from the breaker it draws even more. Also if your shop is cold it makes it all the harder to start. I have a large...

    On a question like that I normally lay it out full scale on the back of a sheet of plywood. One degree can make a lot of difference on something that size. It's enough you could visually see it just...

    I also think google images would give you more ideas than magazines. Most magazines I look at are more advertisements than content.

    Does it kind of have a milky appearance to the finish? The only thing I can think of that went wrong is the finish blushed. It means in humid conditions water literally gets in the finish and turns...

    Unless someone is prone to set a sweaty glass on the table a lot about the easiest finish you could use would be lacquer. It dries very quick and very forgiving. Put two or three coats of a lacquer...

    About all you can do is use a UV coating over a dye. They are just more prone to fade than an oil stain.

    As long as you allow the gel stain to dry I don't see a problem. If it's cold where you are it may take a week for the stain to dry. It should work alright to brush the finish on. A fiberglass door...
