    Chainmill Sharpening - Score one HFT

    :thumbs_upFor years now I've been milling my own lumber but have been hand sharpening my blades. My rig is a Stihl 044 with a 30 inch bar using semi-skip chain on a Granberg mill.... that adds up to 105 teeth on a blade. I had done some in depth reading recently to find out why I wasnt able...

    My new score!

    I stumbled on this lathe around May time and haven't been able to use it much because of working as a raft guide and living on the river... away from my new obsession. But the few times I've stood at it for 6+ hours have been phenomenal, for the exception of the banjo breaking 3 times now. I've...

    Another great NCWW score - thanks to Steve Sanders!!!

    A couple of weeks ago NCWW member Steve Sanders contacted me about one of his neighbors that had recently lost a large white oak tree in a windstorm. One thing led to another, and today I made a trip over to Mt. Ulla (just outside of Mooresville and Statesville) to cut up the tree and pick up...

    Mini Router Plane Score

    Got this at Ed's shop above the Woodwrights School a couple of weeks ago. View image in gallery View image in gallery It has seven different interchangeable blades with it. Some of them are shaped like carving gouges. All but one of them really need a good sharpening and most need...

    Another great score thanks to NCWW!

    A few weeks back Gary Conklin (NCTurner) forwarded me a craigslist posting concerning a large tree. Normally I don't do tree removals, because the cost is usually more than the wood is worth. However, in this instance there were a four things that when combined, tilted the scales in favor of the...

    Hand Plane score

    OK - so some of you know that my *other* hobby is Amateur Radio - so this morning I was at a ham radio picnic / swap fest. As I was browsing the tables of used gear for sale/trade/barter, I came across the hand planes you see below. I asked the older gentleman at the table how much he wanted...

    Wood Score - Want Some?

    I saw an add on Craig's List for a 4" belt sander. I have one but for some reason, the drive belt keeps breaking. So, I thought I'd check out the sander. Well, the guy was a woodworker and moving out of the country. I bought several boards from him - thinking I would use it to make cutting...

    Miter saw score

    I picked this up yesterday from a guy who has had it in storage for the last 10-12 years and was tired of having to move it out of his way. I gave $150 for it and the guy brought it from out near Sanford to Cary to meet me so I didn't even have to burn that much gas. :thumbs_up It's a Hitachi...

    Tool Score!

    So I was helping a friend from church move today and we got to cleaning out his shed. I was moving items to the truck when I picked this up. View image in gallery He told me not to bother putting it in the truck because it is broken. I told him (quite boldly) that I can fix it. He said...

    Score! Two handplanes.......

    I dropped into my favorite Antique Mall today (Granddaddy's in Burlington) for a walk. To my shock, joy and amazement I think I scored some deals! A 12" woodworking rasp, looked unused for $3 Then, sitting on top of a big display of tools, a solid wooden body scrub plane w/iron...

    DW788 score!

    I'm not sure if this is gloat-worthy...but it's a lot less than the new price :) Ever since trying my hand at double-bevel marquetry during the David Marks inlay course a few months back, I've been looking for one of these. My phone barked at me while I was in the workshop this afternoon - a...

    A little CL score (and a little gloat)

    I have been looking for another router to use as a hand held router. The 3.25 HP Freud scares me a little out of the table. :saw: I saw an add on CL yesterday for a DeWalt DW618B3 router kit. Said never used in box for $150. Also noticed it was a second post and was $200 before. So I went...

    Went to the Habitat store in Sanford yesterday, they had an old refrigerator with bad written on it. Asked the store manager what she was going to do with it, she said it's mine if I haul it away. I now have all the components removed, need to clean it, then I'll start setting it up for a...

    Bosch Jobsite Radio/Cd Score....

    Got in on the Lowes Cyber Monday online sale event and got me a boom box for the shop....Pretty neat, charges batteries, has a 12V plug in, plays my I-Pod music, etc. for $86. Not bad, just doesn't sound quite as good as one of my kids left behind stereos that I'm currently using. The sawdust...

    Wood Score!

    Well, RARELY do I have a reason to gloat, but I had a minor score over the weekend I thought I would share. We were getting together Saturday to work on a parade float for the kids at the church and had decided on a simple manger scene on the trailer we had procured. One of the guys said he has...

    HVLP Score ...

    Picked up a used Fuji HVLP Q4 system today ... at a good price. It is a four-stage turbine and has nozzles for paint and poly ... which should be able to do anything I will need. Though my Wagner FineSpray has done me good, I have to think (and hope) this will be a world apart. Anyone else...

    Woodcraft/Amozon score.

    Someone asked last week wheres all the gloats? I decided to wait for the woodworker II to arrive from amozon and post all in one. Went ahead an piked up the Kreg master jig instead of the standard version 4 woodcraft clamps and with the sale price on the 4 piece router bit set it worked out to...
