    lot of Grizzly, steel city on CL

    If these are in good condition it seems like a great deal. I'd love a piece or two, but location and the fact they won't split it up means I hope someone on here can take advantage. Just send me a few pieces of the walnut as a finders fee ;)...

    Steel City Granite Jointer?

    Does anyone have any experience with the steel city granite jointers? In particular, the 8" with helical head? I am thinking about adding a jointer to my arsenal. I was considering one of the J/P combo machines (in particular, the hammer a3-31, or the one of the grizzly G0633/G0634 models)...

    Local, Ral, Sheet Steel Source?

    Anyone know of a local, Raleigh area, source for sheet steel? Perhaps other than Dillion Supply? I've got a bro looking for some 3/8" (preferred) or 1/2" thick sheets of AR400 or AR500 sheet steel. I guess the only requirement be that the sheets fit in a 1/2 ton pickup. TIA, Brian.

    Hi all. I have a brand new Steel City 6 inch jointer. This is my first jointer and last night was my first use. I noticed more vibration in the jointer than I would have expected, but since I have zero past experience, I don't know what would be considered normal vibration. I would...

    Steel City 65115

    Does anyone own the Steel City 65115 Mini Dust Collector? Amazon has it for $39.99 and there are two reviews that do not speak highly of it. I read a professional review that claimed it worked well but was quite loud. My shop is in my barn and noise is not a major concern since I usually wear...

    Buffing a Tung Oil finish with steel wool????

    On several projects lately I have been using Behr Scandinavian Tung Oil finish. From my research it is a Tung oil, other oils and varnish blend. At $6.00 a quart it was a lot cheaper than mixing my own brew. It recommends buffing the last application with 4/0 steel wool. I have heard of applying...

    Round steel stock for Oland tool

    Part of the legacy my father left me was the collecting habits of Fred Sanford, and the engineering abilities of Rube Goldberg coupled with the "making do with what's you got" inventiveness of Red Green. In several threads recently members have mentioned difficulty in finding mild steel round...
