    Porter Cable BN-125 Parts

    Hi Guys, Not really a hot deal or a for sale. I've got a Porter Cable BN-125 Nail gun. I was putting some nails into a bed for repair and drove one into an old nail shattering the plastic nose piece. I took it over to our repair shop in Raleigh and they told me the replacement part is no...

    Visit Frequency

    Hi, I've been a member of NC Woodworker for a few years. I was overseas for a bit so didn't get on much. I'm back now, and despite getting up here a few times a week, my visit frequency remains a decimal figure. Are you able to reset that? I think it's averaging visits over the entire time...

    LF 24" Bessey Bar Clamps

    Hi Guys, I'm trying to build my shop a bit and stop borrowing from Canuck for every project I do. I've got bar clamps but no Besseys yet. I see that they've just started selling the new and improved K Body Revo clamps for even more money than before (sigh). Does anyone know where I might lay...

    Hi! My dear friend Canuck has been telling me for more than a year now that I needed to get up on here and join you folks. I think he's just tired of being my sole source of advice and instruction on woodworking basics like plugging in the saw and using the broom - lol Well I finally finished...
