    You are correct. The page listed Interior Reserve and Interfor Reserve and I guess I got thrown off track. I sounds like these boards are not treated other than heat treated.

    They replied with the name of a mill in Idaho using that number. They said they had no idea what "Interior Reserve" meant and that it wasn't a standard designation in the lumber industry. I may or...

    I am in the US. Tallahassee Fl to be exact. The wood looks like maybe SYP or some other pine. The boards are a little over 7" wide and an actual 3/4" thick. They were set out by the curb for the...

    A little more googling says that the HT designation probably means that it is "heat treated" to kill pests. I also found reference to an email address (info@wclib.org) that may offer insight into...

    interior reserve lumber

    I was salvaging some boards and they looked like they might be pressure treated so I checked for markings. I found the words "interior reserve" and the markings in the attached picture. A quick...

    I assume he is talking about the jig for drilling the holes, not a tool for making dowels right? If so the 1/8" guides from Lee Valley that Edwin mentioned are the smallest I know of and I think...

    It depends on what use you have for it. I really like English walnut and generally use it in shorter lengths and small parts 90% of which wind up being book matched or matched on two sides, so for...

    The motor is probably the same speed as some grinders. What speed is the motor? What speed grinder do you want? For bench grinders 1725 rpm (low speed) or 3450 rpm (high speed) are common. ...

    That is what I would try if it is original titebond 1. Keeping it a little wet with a spray bottle while heating may help avoid scorching the wood and help loosen the glue.

    Your first point (the depth between the center of the tooling to the column) is the one that I have found most frequently to be limiting. The second (the vertical travel of the quill) is something I...

    I have a different bench top drill press and only very rarely wish I had a floor model. If I had it to do over I might consider a floor model, but i wouldn't go so far as to say I regret buying a...

    If the pull is slight enough a quick and dirty solution might be to put the guide 1x2 on the right side if the cut isn't too close to that side of the work piece. if the pull is too bad it will bind...

    One other thing and probably a long shot... Do you take care to align the holes in the disks carefully with those in the pad? Poor alignment would contribute to poor airflow and clogging.

    It never occurred to me to use a spade bit to pre drill the hole in a smaller size. I'll have to try that.

    I have done a lot of end grain drilling on the lathe and never had too much trouble...

    I guess it depends on how and how much it is worn, but usually I'd think slipping could be addressed by cleaning/dressing the belt. If not getting a belt made ought to be possible. Grizzly tech...

    I don't know about using a forstner bit as I have never done it with aluminum, but I will say a few things that I'd consider.
