    I'm not even at my new house yet, but I have been communicating with someone on craigslist about an 80's Powermatic 66. If it's in good shape I guess I will just ask my dad nicely to store it in his...

    I'm moving out of my apartment and into a real house with a garage. I can buy the power tools I have been lusting after. The trouble is fitting everything I need into my $2500 budget. I was...

    Thanks for the help everyone, unfortunately I can't just square the blanks. I'm working on an improvised patio shop and I don't have access to a table saw or a bandsaw. That's why I'm trying to turn...

  12. What centers for turning pen blanks round

    I have special jaws for my nova chuck for holding pen blanks to drill. I'm having trouble with blanks that are poorly cut and not properly square. I try my hardest to start as centered as possible,...

    It's just gonna live outside, it won't be wheeled into the apartment. I have nowhere indoor to store it. I'm not worried about rust because there is little to no moisture in the air here.

    Don't worry about the balcony. Its big and sturdy with a cement floor and it doesn't overhang... it's cut into the building so it sits over the apartment below.

    I know they are typically quiet running, but I also know they can sometimes vibrate and squeal. I'm not sure what causes the vibration but I'm pretty sure any squealing I have experienced in the past...

  20. How much does one really need to spend on a new drill press?

    I'm searching for a new drill press. I am not interested in buying a used one at the moment. My budget goes up to $1400 out to door, but that is top dollar and less is better. It must be floor...
  21. Has anyone ever bought hardwood flooring to use as stock?

    I'm just curious... it's not that expensive and I assume it's very well dimensioned already.

    Think more like a baton, narrow and solid on both ends.
  23. How to you finish the base of a spindle while on the lathe?

    Specifically if you're turning a spindle and the both ends need to show, how do you finish them? If you leave them attached to waste material it leaves an unfinished spot where you eventually cut it...
  24. Anyone ever made a miter box for Japanese pull saws?

    I was thinking it might be useful. I can probably work something out myself, but I was wondering if anyone had any good designs.
