    Getting protective masks to those who need them most.

    This is pretty straightforward. If you've got masks or gloves - get them over to your local hospital! If you're using social distancing - watching tv at home - you don't need the stuff! (Or keep one.) Our medical professionals are putting their lives on the line every day treating our most...

    Wanted - 12" or larger bandsaw

    I’m going to sell mine if your father in law is interested. I’ve got Carter blade guides installed, and 2-3 new blades still in the sealed packages. Like new condition, and sits on a mobile base. PM me if interested? I was going to put it up in the marketplace but hadn’t quite got it done...

    Porter Cable BN-125 Parts

    Wow - got them in and stuck it right on! When I shot that nail and parts went everywhere, I thought I had broken more important parts at the nose, but it turns out that's all it was. I can't tell you guys how much I appreciate the advice. Saved a very useful tool there. One of my favorites...

    Porter Cable BN-125 Parts

    It turns out that while I thought "the whole nose assembly shattered" that it was in fact just the bumper. So Zach, I've ordered via that link you provided on eBay. We'll see if that does it.

    Worksharp bevel not square - Only idiots read manuals

    It's funny, over the years, how often the answer has been in the manual that I didn't bother to read. Thanks Jeremy!

    Push sticks for the shop

    I've got several push sticks, but I picked these up on Amazon a few years ago and really like them. They make me feel like I have more control of the wood. They are multi adjustable and allow you to hold pieces on both sides of the blade as well as the router table. They're especially useful...

    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...

    Kitchen Knives

    Thanks Mark, the video was tremendously helpful. I picked up the Lansky kit but I don't like it. I'm going to get Wicked's ME-130. It seems like the Lanky upgrade :). I appreciate you taking the time to link those - thanks!
