    Chair Repair

    I picked up this banker’s chair the other day and found someone got creative with one of the wheel stems: I was thinking of filling the both of holes with dowels but am not sure how to patch/repair the missing wood. There used to be a flat surface where the wheel stem was but that seems to...

    Abrasive Belts Bandsaw

    These came with a Rockwell 14” BS that I bought. I don’t plan on using them or have the attachment that makes them work with my BS. Does anyone have a use for these? The belts are 91” long. They’re free to whomever wants them

    Bow saw

    Preferences for bow saws for pruning? I’m not taking down a forest, but just some light pruning around the yard. Simple fiskers for $11 Or bahco for $28 Or another brand? I’ve only used one of these when cutting down Christmas trees. Does the handle really make that big of a difference? I...

    12” Sliding Miter Saw Blade Recommendation

    What are folks using for a sliding miter saw blade? I have a DW779 and plan to use that blade for rough work (2x syp). I plan to cut mostly 3/4 hard and soft wood stock but may end up with some 8/4 or more at times. My only requirements are full kerf and something less expensive than Forrest.

    Blind Nailer / Chisel Gauge

    I stumbled onto an ad for a blind nailer/chisel gauge and am intrigued. The concept seems simple enough, chisel acts kind of like a plane, takes a slice of wood off and the wood sliver is then glued back in place. How well does this work in practice? Is this a tool that died out for a reason or...

    Cutting Mortises

    I have a bench top mortiser, but its a bit light duty for cutting mortises into the hickory posts I'm using to build a bunk bed. Instead of using a bench top mortiser, I was thinking of buying a upcut spiral bit to cut mortises with a router. Any recommendations for a good upcut bit that folks...
