    First Drum Sander Thoughts

    I have the Woodmaster dual drum sander. Don't use it as much since I got a Hammer jointer/planer machine with the Silent Power cutting head. Comes out of the planer ready to sand starting with 120 grit. Don't sand any Pine as a first test with your new machine like I did. It will gum up the...

    Building Question: Shop Expansion

    Consider a shed roof to expand the width. Easy to frame; just carefully remove the siding on that side and re-use it on the addition. Less material to purchase for the long wall ends.

    Pallet tool

    Plan on having some wastage when recycling pallets for projects. I have used the wide pry bars and hammer blows to salvage pallets in the past. When I lived in South Georgia I heard a story of some pallets that came from the local Firestone tire plant. Seems one of the maintenance guys salvaged...

    WTB Air Cleaner

    Its a Shop Fox air cleaner. I'm only asking $75.00-new ones sell in the $180.00 to $230.00 range. Runs great. I just don't use it anymore. I could send some photos via text.

    Hurricane Safety and Prep.

    Spent 25 years ibn the insurance claims business, so I stay prepared for these occasions. Have some cash on hand in case power is down; get a full tank of propane for your grill for cooking; batteries for flash lights; make sure prescriptions are filled. Hopefully we only get some rain and...

    Reasonably Priced Non Ethanol Fuel

    I had to take my pressure washer back to the dealer to have the carb cleaned due to leaving regular gas in the tank/carb over the winter. Since then I have begun to use the 4-stroke fuel available from Lowes and outdoor power equipment dealers in the gallon cans. This contains a fuel stabilizer...

    Dust Collection on planer, not working well

    I only have a single stage 1 1/2 HP dust collector, so I located my 16" jointer/planer machine closest to the collector. From what I have read, it helps to locate the biggest dust/chip producer closest to the dust collector. The shorter the piping the better.

    Good table saw for around $1300

    Check out the Grizzly website. I got a used hybrid table saw made by Grizzly that works on either 120 or 240 volt. Cast iron and you can get a mobile base for it for a reasonable cost.

    Picking A New Riding Mower

    I have had a Toro SW4200 for 3 years now and it has been a great purchase. Would buy again in a heartbeat. Zero turn but with the familiar steering wheel. Got mine from a dealer that caters to the landscape pros. Don't waste your money on a mower from the big box stores; they are built to sell...

    Pressure Washer help?

    If you get a gas model, be sure to seek out a gas station that sells ethanol-free gas. If you use conventional gas and let it sit unused for several months, the deposits from the gas will gum up the carb. Unlike a mower, a pressure washer washer will sit in storage for a long time until the next...
