    G0766 22 X 42 lathe - Ordered!

    Thread Starter: Roger Chandler

    Well, just as a follow up to the other thread......I just pulled the trigger on the new G0766 :o:D Not trying to be the first or anything like that, but feel like this will serve me well for years to come, and is likely the best value in a large lathe on the market today. While one can see it...

    Calipers, Digital Dial?

    Thread Starter: Mike Holbrook

    The chair making classes I have taken so far have tested round straight and tapered tenons for correct size with a ruler or simple mechanical calipers.

    Decent Mobile Base For A 18" Bandsaw?

    Thread Starter: Julie Moriarty

    I ordered a couple of HTC PM1000 mobile bases, one for an 18" bandsaw and the other for a 17" drill press. I assembled one to fit the BS and got our son to help me get it in place. Once there, I went to move it and the thing scared me. The wheels were wobbling and looking like they were about to...

    Building Potting Benches

    Thread Starter: Jim Koepke

    A member asked me to post more information on my potting bench build after seeing my recent post about using a story stick for building two more potting benches.

    Nova, Jet or Oneway?

    I will throw my hat in with the DVR XP, with zero hesitation. If I could put that headstock/motor/computer on my Stubby S750 base and bed, I would do

    Calipers, Digital Dial?

    Apparently there is a considerable variety of opinion regarding "the easy way" to make tenons for chairs as the methods used in the three classes

    Power Feeder ?

    What size jointer do you have and how do you mount it? Im assuming you use it only for surfacing a face? I could see it being useful for longer boards
