There is a maker of premium hand saws in my community that needs a woodworker to make some of the wooden parts for their saws. I'm going to refrain from naming the brand since I'm just doing a trial r...

I ordered a pulley through Motions Industries. They were so helpful when it came to finding bearings for my 1940 Delta bandsaw I figured I'd start there. I did call a couple of other places that had t...

Post: RE: Powermatic Model 60

For a running, clean brand name, single phase, 8in jointer I'd say $1k is fine. It's not a steal or a ripoff. The comments on the used tool market are all true. I've been looking for a decent 8-10in j...

So what I decided to do is add the extra few inches at the bottom of the sides. On the side where it will be exposed for a 12in or so I'll just conceal it with a piece of baseboard that essentially ma...
