    Back when I only had a Rockwell 14" saw I wanted to make a couple of resonator guitars which called for bookmatched 14" wide tops. I cut a cherry board to 7-1/4" or so wide and cut 3" into each side...

    I mostly use mine for the drum sander, occasionally for the bandsaw if I'm cutting a lot at once. I also set it up when I'm carving with a Kutzall disc in an angle grinder making archtop guitars,...

    I was told to always twist the wires before installing the wire nut, so I do. It makes sense to me.

    Almost all of my customers reach me through email. I don't publish my phone number, since I am not usually in reach of the landline phone and my cell phone is spotty here. If a customer wants to...

    I've used Fiebing's Leather Dye to turn ash black, it worked great. It soaks in fast, too, and dries fast.

    I have a "workbench" which is a 2'x8' piece of 3/4" plywood with a Columbian WW vise at one end and a machinist's vise at the other. I got it for $10 at an auction about 12 years ago and made a set...

    Could you take a wing off the saw so you could stand closer beside it and not have as far to walk around from infeed to outfeed? I'm not sure I'm picturing just what you're doing correctly so this...

    I have sliced a couple of cherry burls on the bandsaw to make peghead overlays, and they went fine with a regular blade. I used a 1/2" 3 TPI TimberWolf. I didn't clean up the face after each cut,...

    What has worked for me in starting my business has been having a market that is a niche of a niche, and products and materials that are small enough to be shipped easily. Also it has taken a lot of...

    If your saw is direct drive or flex drive I would think twice before putting a lot of money into it, my experience with old Craftsman table saws is that the motors get weak and burn out pretty...

    I have three Stanley 10-099s in different rooms that I use regularly. I have gotten a lot of used utility knives in box lots at auctions, and these are the best of all of those, but I haven't ever...

    I have an old 1/8" chisel that I picked up at a flea market years ago and it's surprising how often I end up using it. I would think you could find one on eBay or advertise here in the classifieds.

    My mother has been using YakTrax products for some years, they don't last forever but a few years per set isn't bad. They help her feel safer walking along the road for exercise in the winter, when...

    I use persimmon for fretboard and bridges on banjos and guitars, it's a nice wood to work with and pretty in a way. I think it's also used for golf clubs, not that I have ever played golf or know...

    I would try to address the burning, so you don't have to sand it off. When I am using a tray bit on hard woods like jatoba and persimmon I have to slow my router speed way down to avoid burning. ...

    I have the same saw, and use mine only with a 1/2" 3 TPI blade. This seems to work fine for resawing cherry and walnut up to 9" wide or so, but I am not trying to resaw 9 foot boards, just pieces...

    I wasn't on this site back then. I've never had a bandsaw with a quick de-tensioning lever, and I've never released the tension except to change blades. I don't think this has caused me any...

    If it was me I would drill a hole with a Forstner bit to the bottom of the knot hole and then cut a plug of cherry wood with similar grain direction to the rest of the board and glue it in, then cut...

    I have an 18" Jet and have bought and used 132" and 133" blades with no problems, depending what was cheaper on eBay at the time.

    On my SuperMax 19-38 I can go down to 1/16" or .0625 easily, and on the occasions when I've wanted to go thinner I think I have gone down to .04-.05" without problems. I am almost always using 80...

    I made a folding router table out of a piece of 18" square by 3/8" aluminum, and bought a router with a burned out motor on eBay so I could use the base. This way I can swap the router motor unit...

    I used to get them from Stew-Mac, and I see now that they still stock them, though I imagine there may be cheaper sources too. I haven't bought any in maybe 10 years or so, as I haven't been...
