    Need input on shop window size

    I have now stripped back all of walls to studs and it is clear the windows in the shop need to be replaced (they are single pane, really cheap and have been leaking). Since I plan to replace the siding on the shop, now is the time to replace the windows. I am trying to decide which size...

    Shop Update

    I sent a couple pictures of my new shop just after acquiring it. I have been working on it since then. Today, I removed the gas heater which was mounted to the ceiling but the shop does not have gas, so it has never been used in its current location. I have decided to install a mini-split...

    Seeking HVLP gun advice

    Hi, I am looking for an HVLP gun to spray clear finishes for woodworking projects. I have a 5hp single stage compressor so I was planning to get a conversion gun rather than a turbine system. Any recommendations/horror stories are appreciated.

    This is why I visit the Scrap Exchange...

    Look what I found for $15 ($2.50 per piece) at Durham's Scrap Exchange. Unfortunately, the 1/16" and 1/32" chippers were missing, but I am really happy with my find.

    CA Glue advice

    I have seen CA glue used on Youtube, but I have no experience with it, but I do have a lot of questions... Beyond being really fast, does it have other advantages? What are its disadvantages? When should I NOT use it? I see there are different thicknesses. What would you recommend for...

    Hi, I just bought a rather beat up Rockwell 28-300 14" bandsaw. This is a wood/metal saw which has a build in transmission for slowing down the blade speed for cutting metal. The price was great, but it has a 3/4 HP 3 phase motor and I have only single phase power. So now I have to...

    New Member in Durham, NC

    Hi, I have been building and fixing things my entire life, but I have done very little woodworking. I have recently converted our tiny 1 car garage near downtown Durham (Duke Park) into a small but cozy shop. I look forward to hanging out here and learning what I can :)
