    It is probably fine there. All the air will eventually get to it, less ideal positions just make it take longer. I would consider putting the outlet side on the long side rather than the short...

    The most important part of preparing a scraper edge is to make sure you get it perfectly 90 degrees, with the edge square and sharp and no rounding (this is critical) prior to turning the burr. For...

    Are there any offerings from General Finish that might work? I don't have a source for the Target Coatings locally, and I'm not sure how I could get it shipped in winter without it freezing. Rocker...
  4. Water based equivalent for oil urethane

    Hi,

    I recently picked up a Fuji MiniMite 4 and am looking to try water based finishes, which I have resisted for years. My standard finish is a couple coats of SealCoat followed by 2-3 coats of...

    Standard things like bearings are available from supply houses and the internet. Same with standard electrical parts. It will depend on how old your lathe is. If it is a generic style similar to...

    Nice knives! I stopped using knives and went back to pencils, when I realized that a larger pencil line I could see was more useful than a more accurate knife line I couldn't:)

    Thanks for the info all, I ended up getting the Fuji MiniMite 4 with the side mount gravity gun. That seemed like the most useful configuration for what I normally do.

    A dense, closed grained hardwood would be my suggestion. Apple was common for saws back in the day. Maple, beech, and cherry would probably work and are more readily available.

    I don't have any magazine subscriptions anymore. Last one I cancelled was FWW about a decade ago. I did recently get a digital subscription again to FWW.com for the 9.99 a month or whatever it is....

    I typically use Titebond 1, although I sometimes have trouble with it in the winter here. When it gets below 0F outside, the indoor humidity in the shop can get so low that thin layers of glue can...

    #78s are kind of handy for cleaning up rabbets or making them a shade deeper if too shallow. I have my great-grandfather's Sweetheart #78. It and the router plane probably get the most use of my...

    I've gone back and forth on installing a floor sweep. My reason for not doing it so far, other than not wanting to run the duct or sacrifice the floor space, is that emptying the dust collection...

    Well, I ordered the Supermax 1938. In the end, the Jets I was looking at were out of stock until late June/July, and Acme had the Supermax in stock. It should be here next week. Thanks everyone...

    A month ago I gave my aunt, a nurse, a box of N95 masks I found on a shelf in the shop. She nearly cried when I handed them to her. Apparently they couldn't get them anywhere then.

    Used jointers larger than 6" are pretty rare around here. And most of the sixes are those old gawd-awful Craftsmans with the non-adjustable outfeed. 8" jointers disappear in days off Craigslist, and...

    You are going to need to go pretty far back to find an all-USA made 12 inch jointer that isn't a Northfield. Even if your Unisaw was "Made in USA", it was made with Chinese castings. Somewhere in...

    Actually, metal has an annoying habit of moving too:) At one of the shops I worked at, the foreman would freak out if someone left the good 24" B&S square in the sun. But yes, these threads about...

    Apollo vs Fuji vs Earlex vs ?

    Hi Folks,

    I'm considering picking up a HVLP system. The spousal justification is using it to spray Cabot semi solid oil stain on our deck and not take forever doing it, but I'd also like...

    Anyone else here remember the 1970s when the most accurate tool 90% of woodworkers owned was a Craftsman combo square and most had never heard of a thousandth?

    I suppose you could say the same...

    It isn't so much a manufactured crisis as disruption at a scale beyond the distribution network's ability to absorb.

    As long I can call cordless drills hand tools, the last power tool I would probably give up is the 14" Delta cast iron frame bandsaw I got new in 1996, although the Unisaw would be a close second.
