The joists are starting to show deterioration and I can't see putting walls and roof on a so-so framing structure. The deck is also not level....several inche of drop from house...

    Update on my kidney transplant status

    Hi all, some of you will recall I had to drop out of the Triad shop crawl due to my schedule being too tight with an upcoming kidney transplant in the works. I just wanted to thank everyone for their prayers and kind words. I received the new kidney from a friend of about 50 years on 8/21 and...

    Dust collection blast gates

    I came across a JDS starter kit and an expansion kit for sale, new in box. Is this a good brand ? I don't have the dust collector yet, but these look to be half price of retail cost. It has a controller and gate in the starter kit and two more gates in the expansion kit. Thanks.

    ShopBot two day class

    I am excited to have won a prize at the picnic raffle, but alas, it is not one I need. If I lived closer to Durham, I might go for kicks and grins, but since I don't, I'd like to see it put to better use by someone on the forum that has an interest. I would like to offer this up for sale for...

    It was a lucky day at the estate sale !

    As I was wandering thru a junky garage today, I bent over and opened an orange tool box to see what was in it and wow, glad I did. A Kreg K4 jig for $10 that apparently has never been used as the clamp hasn't been attached to the base yet ! Also has two 500 ct boxes of pocket screws included...

    Oneida Dust Collector

    I looked at this unit today, but unsure of it's capacity as I don't know the specs of the unit. The motor is 1.5 HP and it's at least 12 -15 yr old. The owner used it in his furniture building shop and is no longer using it. It is too tall for my basement as it stands, so I'd either have to...

    Shopsmith....worth it ?

    I just saw a shopsmith advertised in my area for $650 negotiable. Lady says she bought it from the original owner's son and it's in good shape. I already have a table saw, band saw, drill press and belt sander, so would likely just use it as a lathe. I don't know what a good price is for this...

    Table Saws

    I have a Craftsman 10" table saw, circa 1980 or so. It has the cast aluminum top and stamped steel extensions. It has served me well for what I've done so far. I have the opportunity to purchase a really old Craftsman 10" table saw that has the cast iron top and extensions on a homemade...

    I'm cleaning out the garage and have a box full of stains, varnish, turpentine, mineral spirits, some paint, etc. If anyone wants to come get it, it's yours for the taking. I checked to see if all of it looked OK and it is. Most cans are much closer to full than I realized...don't know how I...

    Universal Mobile Base @ NT....any good ?

    Hi guys & gals, I saw that Northern Tool has this mobile base on sale this weekend and wondered if anyone has used it and can vouch for it's value or lack thereof. I realize there may be better ones out there, but for $29 bucks, I can't build one for less using HF casters and plywood. My...

    Deck issues....what do you think ?

    The deck on my house was painted when I bought it...yes the floor. I wanted to stain it after the paint started peeling and I pressure washed most of it off and used a floor sander to get rid of 95% of the old paint...except around the perimeter...near the house wall and under the deck railings...

    Finished project

    OK, since ya'll say it's slow on here, I'll post a project I finished a while back. I would have posted earlier, but after finishing it we were camping a good bit, I forgot about it and it pales in comparison to most of the fine work I see from other members. You may recall I posted earlier...
