Post: RE: Rid house of old electronics/electricals?

Before you throw out any old computer stuff check on ebay sold listings to see if it's worth anything.  I'd rather not talk about how I found out about this.  Okay, I threw out a board that regularly...

Post: RE: Anyone bought from Irion recently?

I can drive up there, it's not horribly far from here. That chest if beautiful, if I was doing something like that I would go visit.  I'm making something that's a lot more pedestrian. I guess m...

Post: Anyone bought from Irion recently?

Their website looks like they have been fully assimilated by the whole river table/slab craze.  I just want some plain 8/4 maple.

I moderate a totally unrelated forum and the company that runs it has threatened to switch over to that style instead of a forum tree like it is now (and woodnet is now).  They say it drives traffic. ...

Post: RE: Oneida dust collector wall brackets

My oneida cyclone is older by a few years.  It came with an angle iron bracket.  I always thought it was funny there was no bracing, it's just right angles.  It works though.

I got mats with holes in them.  So much nicer than standing around on chips from the metal lathe.

Post: RE: Machined miter bar?

I'm not sure this is the part of the miter gauge that I would want to improve.  I'm pretty happy with my Incra miter bar.  If I ever end up machining a fixed 90 degree miter gauge, I'll probably use t...

Post: RE: exact 90 miter guage

I want an exact 90 degree miter, but the WP example doesn't look that great to me and it's too much.  I wonder if it's exactly some angle close to 90 degrees. And I don't see any reason for such a lon...

I had this situation, but I ended up taking some drywall out and doing surgery on the framing with an oscillating tool/chisel.  Then I figured out that the door is bowed too.  When the weather warms u...

at one time there was a 26" oven size.  I think it might have been a GE exclusive.  Our kitchen cabinets are built to use one, and when the old oven died in a shower of molten burner, the only 26" ove...

I did this, it was relatively easy. I got a direct 120v led lamp. The only thing about the circuit is that the switch actually has a starter in it, and it doesn't work with a direct wire lamp*. Fortun...
