    Free MLCS Mini Dovetail Jig

    I am cleaning up my small workshop area. Four years ago I bought this jig with the intention of making some small boxes. I cut out one joint and never went any further. Any member who can put it to good use is welcome to pick it up in the Columbia SC area. Jig includes 15" long template...

    Rules for the "For Sale / Wanted" forum.

    I am trying to figure out how to post an ad for a free MLCS dovetail template I will never use. The Post Thread button is not showing, I guess because I haven't been in the website since January. Please advise.

    CNC Desktop Machines.....Worth Buying??

    Thanks for the advice. I clearly remember when I bought a job site saw and with no experience or training was afraid to use it. A friend's husband is a commercial cabinet maker and he got me started. The virus has put a halt to my outside contacts. I have thought of checking with the local...

    CNC Desktop Machines.....Worth Buying??

    For several years I have been intrigued by CNC routing, particularly when comparing my scroll saw Christmas ornaments with those done with CNC. A son-in-law and grandson just bought a large table CNC for their welding business which renewed my interest. I am looking for advice. I started doing...

    Accurate cutting/filing/sanding a small area (hardwood)

    Ken - Thanks. I appreciate your offer. I an using .75-.80" hardwood for the bow. I think the easiest way for me to go is with Mike Davis' suggestion for glued strips.

    Accurate cutting/filing/sanding a small area (hardwood)

    I keep wishing my little DeWalt saw would take a dado blade: it doesn't. Your idea sounds like a good one and could probably work with my small project. Attached is a picture of my prototype fishing boat to give you an idea of what I did previously........... I have cut out everything for the...

    Accurate cutting/filing/sanding a small area (hardwood)

    Thanks. I don't know whether the project is worth buying another sander, particularly when I have so little space left in my end-of-garage work area.

    What does a 1" sander look like? I have a 10" bandsaw.

    Accurate cutting/filing/sanding a small area (hardwood)

    I am working on a craft project that requires accuracy I am finding hard to achieve. The attached piece shows a roughed out shape of a 3/4" piece of hardwood. The steps are 3/4x1/4x1/2". I hove found from experience that I cannot get an exact fit with a scroll saw so I have been cutting the...

    Dust Collection Hose Size

    I have a Dust Deputy hooked up to an old Craftsman shop vac and then to various power tools (table saw, sander, bandsaw and router). This is a 2 1/2" system. Would a 1 1/4" system do a better job collecting dust? Lowe's has a great buy this weekend on a Shop Vac with 1 1/4" or a Craftsman...

    Can plywood be successfully butt glued?

    Thanks for all the ideas. I had to look up what a scarf joint is: another learning experience for a novice woodwoker!:) I haven't considered buying a suitable piece of plywood because (1) I am trying to use up what I have in stock and (2) I am cheap. I don't think I have the tools to cut an...
