    I'd suggest a card scraper and then a little sanding. Buy some higher quality mechanic gloves. They fit really snug on the hands and grip on wood really well.

    One drop of silicone in a shop can make the finishing process a nightmare. Silicone will spread around like Covid. Sat next to some finishers at a woodworking conference once. Their company had a...

    The most logical distance from the slot to the bit, is one that would allow your miter gage or most common sled you want to use. The slot distance has nothing to do with a table saw, unless you use...

    By value you only mean price? With that Grizzly you have to keep at least one spare potentiometer on hand, the banjo design is not in the big leagues, and the headstock only has 2 bearings in it. ...

    Too much for today's buyers. The next person to buy it will be asking for help finding a primer that kills all the pigment in those exotics so paint will stick.

    Despite my love of Wright's Prairie style work, I have researched his life enough to hold no respect for the man.

    Yeah they may come from the same factory, but you still get 4 more years of warranty than Grizzly offers. I'm curious to know if you have inside information about any quality differences, or bearing...

    100 years ago, most farm homes didn't have central heat. I know we didn't have central heat in our farm home that long ago, and we lived on a farm in Central IL. The first furnace that went in our...

    I made a sofa when we were first married. It sat like a torture device. Custom upholstery is no cheaper than custom woodworking, or hand made suits. Good quality foam rubber is expensive too. Do...

    The only way I would use a cross grain board is with a sliding dovetail and a little wood peg in the middle. A wood toothpick makes a great tiny dowel.

    Not unusual. In an industrial application a electrical shut off box has to be mounted on the wall next to the machine, and may even require conduit to the machine to meet code.

    Switch to a piece of plywood. The solid stock may have internal stresses and complicating the situation. Also I agree that a WWII is not a good ripping blade. How old is it and have you had it...

    I was under the impression that Shop Fox and Grizzly sold at the same price. They are identical except that Shop Fox is sold through other retailers. Does that shoot a hole in the theory of Grizzly...

    No heavier than a podium is, I'd build in two wheels and maybe some drop down handles on the inside and pull it around like a two wheel dolly.

    I've never used a Resaw Master, but the most common statement is the amazing surface finish. To me that indicates very little set in the tooth. For doing a lot of resawing, I use blades from sawmill...

    Menards handle partial sheets. I'd just use 1/2" regular plywood if you need the strength. I've done it often.

    You can't raise the temperature of wood that fast. But that depends at what moisture content you start with. Most wood kilns start around 90 degrees and go up, but that would be based on the wood...

    Curious how you want to sell a faulty drill press for $300 and then replace it with a $400 brand new machine. That's a very optimistic price on a bad drill press.

    Why so thick? The door is really 8'? You have 10' ceilings? Width of the rails and stiles will be a concern for the stability. Go too wide and you'll get boards that may be closer to the pith and...

    The whole lathe doesn't weight much more that 550pounds (584 shipping weight). You really think the head weighs close to half the machine weight?
