    Any Tips on Turning with Carbide Insert Tools?

    Well I've taken the plunge and brought home a new shiny spinny thing! (I know no pics it didn't happen, but I'm not interested in a stealth gloat). I have turned some small things on friends' lathes through the years but always with HSS tools. I decided to get my first set of tools with...

    Help me decide - Grizzly G0656PX or G0490X jointer

    I got my 0656 last year on discount when they had their issue with paint peeling. I have been entirely pleased with it. If I was starting from scratch and had an unlimited budget I would go with the parallelogram design, but having said that I had no issues with getting the 0656 dialed in very...

    I couldn't resist! I have been limping along with my underpowered 6" delta for too many years. I think I can handle bad/peeling paint. I will update/post pics when it arrives.

    Cracked Husky

    I have had good luck in the past with putty epoxy for small leaks. Cut off a bit of the epoxy from the stick, work it together for several minutes, then while it is still quite soft apply it with some pressure to push some of the epoxy into the crack then let it cure. The epoxy won't be...

    Performax 16-32 Plus Price

    I have the opportunity to pick-up a Performax 16-32 Plus roughly 10years old from a cabinet shop going out of business which appears to have been well cared for and in good condition. $650 seems like a fair price, but wanted to get opinions from those who may have bought one used. Thanks for...

    Moving your workshop

    Having had to move the shop across country recently, I would recommend disassembling any/all protruding items: TS wings/fence rails, tool stands, knobs on jointer/planer/TS etc. Although it is more work taking things apart and putting back together, the ease of moving a "small " TS or planer...

    A cutter becomes a cuttee

    Robert- having had both of my carpal tunnels released- 1st 11/06, 2nd 2/08- I can tell you that I am not sure why I waited 10years to do it! The incision(s) heal very quickly, but expect that you will have a funny aching in the base of your hand for 3-6weeks afterwards. After the doc cuts the...
