    Small bandsaw blade advice sought

    I snapped the band on my 17" Grizzly bandsaw recently and need to replace it. I use this saw for everything but resawing, and the band that I snapped was 1/4" deep, around .028 thick, and 10 tpi. I really like the general purpose nature of this band. The Grizzly band worked well, but before...

    Lathe advice sought... UPDATE!

    I'm thinking about "going over to the dark side" and adding a small wood lathe to my shop repetoire. FWW recently did a head to head comparison of several small/mid size lathes, and the Penn State Turncrafter Commander (with bed extension) caught my eye. I like the power (1 hp), relatively small...

    Glass source sought - non standard

    For the past few years the surgical lights on my wife's veterinary hospitals have been going through a lot of 85W quartz halogen bulbs and bulb holders. We've been spending close to 1K per year in replacements (ouch!); quite frankly the unit is not designed for the heat nor being left on 6 hours...

    Hi All, I posted this on the general board before I saw this finishing one. I have some small boxes that I finished with shellac. I wiped on a lot of 2 lb. coats and got a pretty good surface. But the rubbing out seems so labor intensive. I'm starting with 400g sterated paper then 0000...
