    Electric Bass Guitar Build

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    My SO wants a bass guitar. And I'm getting bored watching the lacquer cure on the other guitar. :) I took some 1:1 scaled drawings of bass guitars, glued them to 1/4" MDF, and started cutting templates. The neck and back are completed, with the exception of the neck heel. I don't want to cut...

As many of my fellow SMC members are aware, I have a sawmill and kiln drying operation on my farm. Recently, my farm...

    Upside down receptacles?

    Dust is dangerous

    Thread Starter: Brian Henderson

    I ended up getting into a discussion over on YouTube on a video of Adam Savage, of Mythbusters fame, doing woodworking. He was grinding down LDF, which he said had no formaldehyde, and making tons and tons of sawdust with no dust collection and no mask. I pointed out that it was dangerous to do,...

    Big chinese laser ID and power question

    Thread Starter: Chris Corwin

    Hi, I just picked up a donated 100w Chinese laser and need some help identifying and locating some stuff. One thing that would help us is identifying who built the machine. It was rebranded by TUrnkey Lasers. They are no longer in business so any type of support from them is out of the...
