    Keeping wood free of powder post beetles

    Thread Starter: Barry Vabeach

    In the last 2 years I have been buying rough lumber off Craig's list, and this and other forums. I was told that some was air dried (some walnut and some oak) and others I was told was kiln dried ( cherry and walnut ) but I am not so sure it was. Anyway, recently I found some of the oak with powder...

    plow planes

    Thread Starter: Ralph Boumenot

    Tablesaw blade alignment problem

    Thread Starter: Greg Woloshyn

    I have a Delta contractors saw and I'm having a problem with getting the blade aligned correctly to the fence. When I'm ripping a piece as soon as it gets to the other side of the blade (end of cut) the back teeth cut into it. I used my dial indicator in the miter slot to ensure my blade was...

    LV "Vesper-lite" double square?

    Thread Starter: Patrick Chase
