    Plane choice for a beginner?

    Thread Starter: Scott Archi

    So I sold some of my sharpening stones (about $600 worth) and am wanting to invest some of that in a hand plane or two. My dad is letting me borrow his Stanley block plane which I am getting on well with. I want to say it's about 7" long so not a tiny plane. I was making shavings last night 0.0015"...

    Trotec VS Epilog (yes, another thread)

    Thread Starter: Ivan Shuliak

    Hi, I know, we've got lots of threads about which one is better but most of them got the same answers: Choose based on support you get from your rep, Trotecs built like tanks, Epilogs are USA made etc. But, having two of Epilog machines (Zing and Fusion M2) I want a Trotec machine, because...

    New Laguna lathe

    Thread Starter: Greg Parrish

    Yet another shop build.... McFarlane

    Thread Starter: mark mcfarlane

    After a 9 month battle with the local water district over an easement, we started clearing the land for my new shop today. It was amazing to watch these guys clear the land. We had three 80-100' pine trees removed and about a dozen smaller ones. One of the tall trees was 2 feet off my...

    Connecting Ducting to 8" Dust Gorilla Pro Oddity

    Thread Starter: John Sayen

    Hi all, We're starting to hookup our quick clamp ducting to the 5hp dust gorilla pro, and noticed an oddity. The 8" port that the connector would slide over is less than a half-inch deep on one side, and it's pretty cruddy at the weld. The reason I'm asking is because I can't get the 8"...
