  1. Looks like that's a different saw. $2500 for that one and it's in great shape! I'm in Indianapolis as well. I'll look at any of your sloppy seconds! LOL
  2. I really only want to subscribe to one magazine. Sounds like it's either Fine Woodworking or Popular Woodworking that have decent digital editions. Which do you guys think is more useful? For now, I'm building shop furniture and tack trunks (square chests), but would like to graduate to nicer stuff for our house eventually.
  3. Well business takes me away from my shop for the winter, so I'm left with planning my next project or two for when I get home. The silver lining is I've left the winter of Indiana behind for 4 months of Florida! [emoji267]☀️️[emoji108] I've attached a couple pictures of my last two projects. I build boxes that horse people can store their equipment in. They're very simple next to most of the other projects I see here, but I've enjoyed making them, and hopefully the work will earn enough money to buy some more powerful tools! And I can make them without a jointer! I'll give you one guess as to what tool will be strongly considered to be my first big purchase! Picture 1 is of a light weight version with lowes birch plywood faces and pine trim. Pictures 2 & 3 are of a heavier duty one with the same birch plywood, but oak trim and a sliding tray insert. I have a stack of rough cut maple from a tree that fell at my parents' house that I'm planning to use as trim for the next few I make. I've been using GF gel stain, and had very good luck matching the stain between the birch plywood and oak trim. My first question is: will the maple be as easy to match to the way the birch takes the stain, or should I consider finding some maple veneered plywood? 4x8 Birch plywood costs $48 at lowes, while maple is $110 at the closest lumber yard. My last two boxes were very slightly out of square once I assembled them. I built them on a table made out of a 3/4" sheet of MDF laid across two saw horses. I blame at least most of the crookedness on not having a flat surface for assembly. I'm thinking I need to build some sort of flat assembly table. If I'm going to do that, I might as well take the time to make it a multifunction out feed table for my little jobsite table saw, with a wing for a router insert. I've had to shuffle the table saw, the router table and worktable back and forth for all of my projects, so i think if I can combine all three parts to share the same space more efficiently, my life will be WAY easier. I'm embarrassed to admit how much cleanup is going to have to happen to make room for the table. My shop is on my in-law's property, and it has been accumulating stuff for much longer than I've been around. The good news is it's not a shared space, and I can do whatever I want to it! So here's the revised order: 1) CLEANUP!!! 2) Assembly table 3) Back to work on the profitable items Somewhere in there I hope to upgrade my dust collection from a shop vac with a dust deputy to a more dedicated system. Anyway, I'm still two and a half months from being able to get back to it, but it'll give me plenty of time to learn sketchup and plan things out better than I've done in the past! I'll post pictures as I go, and I apologize to and thank you all for the questions and answers that I'm sure will crop up along the way! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Is there a magazine that does? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Does anyone know if there are any good woodworking magazines that offer a digital subscription?
  6. Ok got it. Thanks! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Only f-clamp I see online is a 60". There are other bar clamps in the 6"/12" lengths, but they're not specifically called f-clamps. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. Not really looking for anything specific. My hand tool collection is VERY slim. One kobalt block plane, a damaged chisel and screwdrivers is about it. Might think about something to add to that. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. So I just found out there's a harbor freight 12 miles from me. Gonna swing by there sometime this week. Is there anything there I should take a close look at? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Ever been to Thailand? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Thank you! I'll limit my search from now on. Unisaws are the ones that I came across with 3-phase motors. Can I replace with a single phase or should I just look for something else?
  12. I apologize if this has been answered and beaten to death already, but I couldn't find anything in a search. I've been looking at used table saws online to consider upgrading my jobsite saw. In my searches I started to find references to 3-phase saws. I understand the basic advantages of the 3-phase saws (power, torque, etc...), but not sure if I would ever benefit from those advantages to justify the modifications that would be necessary to accommodate 3-phase machines. I don't current have 3-phase service in my shop, so I would have to have it installed. I imagine that alone is very expensive. If I did have 3-phase service, it would give me a broader selection of tools to pick from. Is it worth going through the expense and hassle to have the capability installed?
  13. Cool. Thank you! Gotta love Chrome! Interestingly enough, I check two different C-List geographic locations, and there is one of these on each. The one I linked to picture of is $175 (in Indiana), and this one is $250 (in Florida).
  14. What's the plugin called? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  15. What are some common parts that could be missing?
