    SOLD: Gently used Shaper Origin - $2000 OBO

    Hi folks- I've decided to part with my shaper origin. I've had it since last June and have used it about a dozen times. It works great but I've got a desktop CNC on order, and don't envision using this any longer. The Shaper Origin is a hand-held CNC router. It's pretty easy to use, and some...

    SOLD: Bench Dogs ProTop bench top router table - $50

    I've upgraded to an in-saw router table so I no longer need this. it was $250 new about eight years ago. Note that it's not a router lift, just a router insert plate. It's in good shape, mostly used for rounding over small stuff. The thing itself is about 23-3/4" wide x 15" deep 16-1/2"...

    For sale: 3-HP Jet Cabinet Saw with 52" micro-adjust fence, router lift, and router cabinet -- $600 (SOLD)

    I'm posting this here before other places so maybe it can find a good home :D I am selling my jet cabinet saw (I think that it was a JTAS 10-XL or something like that). The saw is about 18 years old and still in great shape. I am downsizing to a smaller saw to get more room in the garage, and...

    Any experiences with the Laguna p|flux ?

    Looking to upgrade the DC in my garage shop to a cyclone. I've got a few new projects planned and actually some time to do them. I am leaning towards the Laguna p|flux (either the 2 or 3 hp variety) to replace my 1.5hp Jet (which works great but I don't like changing the bags -- dust is a...

    HVAC in garage shop?

    It has been a while since I have posted... I have a shop in my garage - about half of a three-car garage, also shared with a car and lots and lots of storage. It isn't that often that I can actually do anything out there- it is way too hot in the summer, and barely bearable in the winter. The...

    Chainsaw Questions

    Hi All, I have a few chainsaw questions that I am hoping you can help with. I have a 14" electric that works OK for small-medium sized stuff. I several trees that my wife wants removed, and I am wondering if I should upgrade to a gas model. Are gas ones any better, or should I stick with...

    Convert to 220?

    Hi All- I am finally getting around to add some outlets to my shop rather than relying on cord swapping. My 18" bandsaw and 1.5(?) HP Dust Collector are both pre-wired for 120v, but can be wired and run 220v. Is there any real reason/benefit to switch them? It is more work, and more cost...

    When do YOU apply finish?

    Hi all! Hope everyone had a good weekend. I tried searching for this, but didn't find much info... When do you apply finish? Dye? Stain? Sealer? Mostly I am talking about pre-assembly vs. post-assembly. I often wish that I had stained a piece before assembly (granted, I do this wishing...

    Hammer Time! a gloat story...

    I have been looking in to getting a combo jointer/planer for quite a while. I was going back and forth between what I wanted (a Hammer a3-31), and the grizzly/jet/laguna counterparts. After quite a few calls, and a couple quotes from Felder on the Hammer, I realized it was out of my price...

    Insulation question

    My attached 3-ish car garage is my shop. Originally, the only walls that had insulation were the ones that are common to the house. I recently drywalled it all up, to help with lighting and looks. When I did the drywall, I went ahead and put in insulation. I neglected to take in to...

    European Combo Machines? Hammer, Laguna...

    Hi all- Does anyone here have any experience with the 4 or 5 way combo machines? The top contenders are the Hammer c3-31, and the Laguna Platinum 10". I understand that the features on the machines aren't the same, and the price definitely isn't either. Does anyone have any firsthand...

    I REALLY like the home page, with the "recent threads". Is there any way to change the count? I would like to see more. Can it maybe look at the user's configured "Number of Posts to Show Per Page" setting? Thanks!

    Recommendations for a garage/workshop contractor/builder

    Is there anyone in the Matthews (or expand to charlotte) area that knows of anyone that specializes in garages/outbuildings? I am trying to explore options, one of which is getting a shop built-- but I don't even know where to begin. I would probably be thinking the 2-car range, but...

    Pricing of used equipment?

    Sorry if this is the wrong place. I recently sold a couple of machines, but ended up getting less than I had hoped. I find myself in a situation where I am contemplating replacing my current table saw, and moving to a combo machine. I figured that it would be better to consider this now...
