    My old Clausing drill press has adjustable spring tension, and once it slipped off the stops that hold it and made a little bang, but all I had to do was to grab the outer case and wind it up again,...

    At least some of the biscuits I have used had diagonal grain, which would seem to address the issue of splitting. I thought they were all made that way, but of course I have not tried all the...

    I have an 18v DeWalt 6-1/2" saw that I bought used in a set, and it seems pretty weak. It would be fine for cutting a clapboard or something, but I never use it since I haven't worked with...

    I have never used TB3, but with TB1 I would be happy with that amount of time if the humidity was low or medium. If it was high I would want more time.

    I build comma furniture, it's more at my skill level. I don't need something wide very often. I sold my 15" planer this summer. I do have a 19/38 drum sander for those occasions when something...

    Last Sunday I made a cart out of Lowe's CDX plywood which has 7 low but deep shelves and a top work surface that is at a comfortable standing height for me (about 50"). It's on casters, and I am...

    I have a PC, don't recall the number. I had a Skil before that, it was OK but the PC is much better. I bought them both used, at different auctions. I don't use mine all the time, but now and then...

    I'm luckily not that sensitive to walnut, though I do wear a respirator when sanding it. I have a strong reaction to cocobolo dust, it makes me sneeze as soon as I begin to cut or sand it, and I had...

    Thank you all very much for your advice. I hadn't looked at the Driftmaster before, but $399 is more than I paid for the saw, so I would feel a little silly paying that much. I ordered a Kreg last...
  11. 18" Bandsaw lubrication and fence questions

    In the ongoing but dull saga of the Parks 18" bandsaw I am happy to say that I installed the urethane tires and got it running on 115v on Tuesday. I used a 20a 125v toggle switch that I think I...

    I think the idea is to use the Domino to make mortises in the frame the same size as the slats. I made mortises to hold the back slats of a rocking chair using a drill press and Forstner bit to make...

    I have had a similar experience years ago. I think what happened to me was that I had to use a lot of force to overcome the springs on the router base and to get through the wood. The way I found...

    I love diversions, they're most of how life seems to go. I don't know much about things, so I am always happy to learn something new.

    Thank you all for your advice. I don't currently have any 230v equipment in the shop, my big motors are 1.5 hp in the 18" Jet bandsaw and 10" Delta contractor's saw, and maybe the Shopsmith or the...

    Thank you very much for your help. I will keep the "motor rated" idea in mind. I don't think I need to worry too much about power interruptions or overloading the motor, as I don't intend to use...

    Magnetic starter on a bandsaw?

    I have a dumb electrical question. I got my new Parks 18" bandsaw home last week and ordered urethane tires for it right away as the bottom tire is missing and the top is loose. In the meantime I...

    I like the rollback truck idea. The local guy I used to get to haul dead tractors for me had a $75 charge for up to 15 loaded miles, and went up from there. I would imagine it would be cheaper to...

    These are tires on 12" rims, so the overall wheel diameter is probably 22" or so at a guess.

    We have a bandsaw mill that runs the blade on trailer wheels with 4.80 12" tires. Every now and then a blade will break, once it's been resharpened a few times. I have seen it throw the broken end...
