    Box at door

    On the bankrupt subject. People look at my equipment in the shop. I haven't done an inventory in a few years, but a estimated machinery value would be around $70,00 to $80,000. I am quick to tell newbie woodworkers I didn't buy the stuff in a day. It was bought, traded etc. over many years maybe...

    Possible Workshop layout - Your thoughts & input

    Hi Rory, A few years ago I put together a PowerPoint presentation for the Charlotte Woodworkers Club. A few basic points: 1, The best wat to lay out a shop is to draw your proposed floor plan, then with stiff paper like a file folder draw your machines, work bench etc. I would draw it up at...

    Come use my Atlas metal lathe, Efland NC

    I don't know how to use it, but it's a beautiful machine. I don't know, but it looks like the old Craftsman lathe from years ago. Pop

    Recommendations for decent screws

    I have 2 drivers. One is a Bosch 12 volt, and the other is a Rockwell 20 volt. I've had the Rockwell tear the head off a 3/8 in. lag screw. In oak no pre drilling. My fault, but the Rockwell is sometimes too powerful. I use square drive for most of my joints. Never stripped a square drive, and...

    Construction lumber prices

    Hi woodworker200, Don't feel like the Lone Ranger. I bought a 2X4 at Lowes. After dealer prep & options I dropped $7.00. Thank God I only needed one. This really is high-way robbery. Pop :eek:

    Is this normal?

    I generally do ok with Woodcraft. When Klingspore closed the Charlotte store that left only Woodcraft. That store is across town. (I live in South End) Which means 45 minutes on Independence Blvd. For those of you who have not had enjoyment of traveling on Independence let me just say IT'S PURE...

    A clamp to watch for

    On the subject of HF clamps. I have several of their screw clamps. I use them for stops, handling small stuff on the drill press & router table. They work very well and cost around 1/2 what the woodworking stores get. I can find no difference. The screws are stout & the wood is good. Give 'em a...

    Construction lumber prices

    2 items: 1 my next door neighbor is a rep for construction suppliers. He told me not to expect price drops for at least 2 years. 2 Just watched a YouTube short on who's getting rich on this price increase. The land owners, timber cutters, truck drivers, aren't seeing a pay...

    Lumber prices

    The whole thing fries my shorts. Tariffs on Canadian timber. Species based certified lumber. I saw a photo several years ago with Brazilin mahogany logs floating in the Amazon. These laws are stupid. These guys aren't cutting these trees for timber they are clearing land for their use. I know...

    Cabinet Hinge question

    For what it's worth. Not the solation to your problem, I solved my hinge problems by using piano hinges. They always line up and make what was a difficult job very easy. Just my 2¢ worth. Pop

    My go-to saw is an old Delta made in the US. Bought it used. Has Carter guides, tires, brush & tension release. Delta riser block, fence & Mobil base. It's well made. From back when Delta made good stuff. If you can find one of these machines buy it. I paid $600 for mine. Pop

    Woodpeckers or Bust?

    I use WT Tool for an everyday combo square. My shop standard is one of 2. I have a very old brass 30/60. It's solid and 1/8 in. thick. My other is a small Japanese 45/90 that Woodcraft sells. Very accurate. Pop

    Nova galaxy dvr

    I just bought the Galaxy's little brother the Saturn DVR. I got all bogged down building drawers that fit inside the base frame. That with a bad case of sciatica put a crimp in my shop work I'm back at it now, but still haven't put my lathe through it paces. The Saturn is one fine lathe. I would...
