    I have a Grizzly or Shop Fox mobile base under my 8" Grizzly G0500 jointer. I can't recall which one, but it's a model that allows the jointer base to set down in an angle iron frame so it's only...

    Good for carpentry and rough projects, pretty much useless for anything that needs a decent appearance.

    All of my 240V machines run from extension cords at the moment. I used 12-ga SJOOW bulk cord and Hubbell connectors. Been working fine for years. I try not to step on my cords but it doesn't seem...

    Under $15 for OSB is reasonable. I need three more sheets to finish the interior of my garage, so I'll be watching prices.

    Yes. I wanted it but I had to stop before my wife decided I was expendable.

    I appreciate the feedback on my question. This was an auction lot and it sold for around $1400 with buyer's premium and taxes. A little out of my budget. I guess I'll set up the old Delta and wait...
  7. Value of, and opinions on, used lathe - JET 1642EVS

    I am looking at the purchase of a used lathe, it is a JET JWS-1642EVS. I think it may be the -2 model which has the 2hp motor. Looks complete but hard to tell from photos. I know they sell for...

    I have used a heat gun to pop off the bigger drips, and I have also used a wire wheel on a drill to clean and polish the clamp bars. Once you get them clean, wax the hell out of them, it will save...

    Buyer's regret over Domino XL (DF 700)?

    Just curious if any of you that have purchased a DF 700 have had major buyer's regret (other then the obvious - price!)? I am just a hobbyist but I'm "ramping up" so to speak, have been trying to...

    I have not heard of any of the other three. TradeWinds looks - expensive - but who knows? Very intriguing to find that kind of stock here in VT. Kerber also looks interesting. Might have to check...

    I was able to heat up the wax in the can with a heat gun set very low, took a while and released a lot of fumes/odor of turpentine, but it is much better behaved now. Still tough to buff out, I may...
  18. Butcher's Wax on machinery tables - questions

    I have an old can - 25-30 years old - of White Diamond Butcher's Paste Wax. Old enough that it's changed names and companies. The wax in the can is hard and breaks into chunks, very difficult to...

    I use a Freud LM74R010, which is their coated 30-tooth glue line rip blade, on a 3-hp Unisaw. It does produce glass-smooth cuts and it has some serious carbide teeth, big enough for a bunch of...

    For window screens I would definitely prefer to use half-laps or bridle joints. Very strong if done right. I've built some big cabinet doors with nothing but stub tenons and good glue and they hold...
