    If you're buying in any kind of quantity it turns out (it took me a long time to discover this) that LTL truck freight is surprisingly fast and cheap. I'd talk with the larger wholesalers anywhere it...

    Many of us would be interested, I suspect. I hope you can work it out with Keith so it can be a public conversation.

    I just use a hand plane, easier and less scary that a router.

    Yes. I've kept it for at least a year with no special precautions. Suggest weighing the components when mixing small batches to keep the ratios accurate.

    I think cutting through the splines would look odd, at best. I'd certainly do a scale model mock-up first to see if I liked it. You'd need to have the spline sized perfectly and and the groove...

    I moved both my catalog and storage disk a while ago but have little memory of how I did it. Catalog on a new SSD and picture storage onto a NAS. Only about 60K pictures. Basically I read 3-4 How-to...

    I worked for many years without one, then bought one when I was trimming out our house with cherry A&C trim and was faced with a couple thousand feet of boards to sand. I goth the Supermax 19-38.

    I'd let the folks who want to use it as is have it for whatever exorbitant price they are willing to pay for beat up bug infected wood. Good white oak is pretty cheap and abundant. For good chestnut,...

    If you bend it under the edges and tack it in place there is no need for glue-- I'd think glue would be problematic because of the very different thermal expansion rates of wood and copper. Copper...

    A hot attic on a hot summer day can do the trick-- or a glass-windowed van parked in full sun with the windows closed in the summer easily gets that hot.

    Most sawmills that dry lumber heat treat...

    If it were me I'd go the unvented roof route (as we have in our current house and shop), fill the bays with closed cell foam, than 2" of rigid foam on the inside to stop thermal bridging, with...

    1) 135 degrees for eight hours (IIRC, check the USDA web site)
    2) fumigation with methyl bromide (you'll need to take it to a licensed pro facility, most "pest control" companies can't do this)

    New solid body electric, post 2

    Well the project ground to a halt almost as soon as it had started when my bandsaw broke for good. Turns out it had been failing for years with multiple problems. I had blithely assumed that I...

    I'm not going to be much help, as I am a complete novice at spray finishing. The Qualspray gun with PPS was my first gun and I have to say I'm astonished by my level of early success (vs decades of...

    Beautiful turning stock, but a bear to dry without cracking. Very much worth it if you succeed.

    I'd be surprised if it had much longevity. I have a couple pieces done with it that the cats have beaten up pretty badly. Bona Traffic HD is incredibly good for floors.

    Your best bet is to give the folks at Oneway a call. Real people there, they answer the phone and are quite helpful. They can probably supply the parts if it's possible.

    Some progress, but then things ground to a halt when the tensioner screw on my bandsaw broke :(. Things had been going along, but then utter failure in trying to resaw some veneers for the body...

    Boy, if I could get one here at that price I'd just write a check. I've been looking for a good used one for many months now. Ocean freight would probably only be a few hundred dollars, but one would...

    No opinion on that brand. I turned bowls for ~25 years using one Henry Taylor Superflute gouge (1/2" UK measure, 5/8" US measure) with an Ellsworth grind. Never found any reason to have a different...

    Do you not have a bench grinder? If not then your best investment will be an inexpensive grinder (HF or CraigsList is fine for this) upgraded with a "brand name" wheel like a 120 grit white Norton...
