    Mounting Triton Router (Another Raffle Prize Thread)

    I have installed two Tritons in router tables, one with the bigger TRA001 and another with the MOF001. Both had enough power to do everything I wanted. The smaller one was so quiet that I had to remind myself to turn it off. I used the Woodpeckers plate in both with a perfect fit on both.

    Which scroll saw?

    Sold my 18 year old DeWalt 788 about 6 months ago, then moved back from overseas, and am pondering getting a new scroll saw. The Woodcraft sale on the King 21 with stand got me looking at the new models and best options. So, I am open to ideas, but I am leaning towards the models: Pegas 21...

    RBI Hawk-mobile base-Jet mortising-beams

    The oak beams are still available. Would be great for making mantels, or work benches, or decoration.

    Ha ha. I was thinking the same thing, but when I first read your post I saw "Over-the-hill mountain men".

    Looking for finishing suggestions

    I would recommend a couple coats of shellac sealer, then the poly, although for a desk I like rub varnish. As the coats build give them lots of time to dry hard before the next coat. Folks tend to get impatient on the drying time.

    Looking for Tool Rests

    I use the round Packard rests, for years, on all lathes, and will continue.

    Muni lathe advice?

    After using other tool rests, I find the stock rests poor. I have replaced all with round bar types from Packard, starting first, years ago, with the rest on the Jet midi-lathe.

    Full-Time RV - Scroll Saw or Woodturning

    Well, I would take the mini-lathe. I always see small pices of wood around and making small items like pens and bottle stoppers as you travel would appeal to me. A hand saw can cut down wood to usable size. I would think lifting a mini-lathe to a table just as easy as a scroll saw. I find...

    Anyone in Charlotte area available for a table saw tutorial?

    I have taken quite a few of Woodcraft classes at shops in Virginia, Georgia, Tennessee, and North Carolina, and been very pleased with my increased skill level afterwards. Also, like the classes at Peachtree Hardware. Mixed results with classes at Rockler. Of course, the best courses are the...

    Crosscut sled construction - what to use for the runners?

    Made a sled once with oak runners. Smooth as silk, until two weeks later and wouldn't even go into tracks. Humidity changes. Sanded until running smooth again but then the sled was a little sloppy in the dry season. Now, I just use aluminum track which doesn't change at all.

    Hanging Stuff on a Poured Concrete Wall

    The initial post says the shop "will" have 10" walls. If not built yet, why not have the builder put in some threaded anchors in the concrete (floor and wall) to attach the stud wall?

    ACT Fast? RDU CL - Delta Unisaw Platinum edition - $400 (Rolesville)

    Looks like the saw has been rained on and neglected. Some scrubbing, sanding, polishing, and repair to the end table, and I suspect it would be a superb tool.

    Restaining Deck

    I also have 1500 square feet of deck. When we bought the house, the previous owner was putting on Olympic every year. I couldn't do that. So, I first got a very strong power washer to clean every crevice. Then, a coat of the honey stain previously used to color uniformly. I also coated the...
