    Last summer I took my exterior doors to the shop one at a time and repaired as needed and repainted. Good to go for many years more. Would not have been very successful fixing in place.

    Brian
    If you need rot resistance you will need to test for open tyloses. Other than that you will just need to examine the wood for grain and color.

    We might need Myth Busters for this one. A tabletop or a cabinet door may benefit from balancing the construction of both sides, but an outside door does not experience life like an inside object. (I...

    I'm a couple years ahead of you but I'm planning on another 10 years. Not reducing any machines but not getting any more either, just the odd tool or accessory. Working thru the wood and...

    Just a caution on the table. To make it work as planned, first make a mockup of cardboard and tape to get the size right for the items to be displayed.

    Actually automotive belts are very good quality. Due to very high volume and very high expectations they get way more engineering and quality control than woodworking machinery.

    You may be able to taper a piece of 1/8" x 3/4" steel by hammering the top thinner than the bottom. Or there are blacksmith hobbyists that could make hoops. You may have to pay cash or pizza and...

    An accommodation to modernism may be in order here. That container will not contain trash very well and a plastic trash bag folded over the top is going to compromise the look. You could find a...

    Looks like the top shrunk about 1/2" and is only showing at one side. Guessing the other end is similar. I'm guessing that the wood has shrunk (shrinked) and will probably not grow all the way back...

    David's advice is great, but when replacing my bandsaw bearings I didn't have it. I took my bearings to a bearing distributer and got great service. Sound advice and everything in stock so no...

    I stop my table saw in 1 second without a resistor. This is fine per the VFD manufacturer's rep. It's another brand.

    What use do you have for the lumber?

    A big old bandsaw sounds like a fine goal in itself, but don't get into a bind if it has problems. Keep the Jet while you enjoy the beast.
