  1. I was told it's because the automobile manufacturers scooped up all the metal last year, when production dropped off due to COVID.
  2. just sitting around collecting dust? A plane that desires to be used? A personal desire to help a guy out by selling it? I'm not looking to refurbish one, not time for that right now. I'd pay a reasonable market price for a decent Veritas, Lie Nielsen, etc... jointer plane. I really want another bevel up Veritas, but they won't be in stock again until December.
  3. I can't stop staring at the red triangle and the date. How am I supposed to rebuild my kitchen and other cabinets without tools? This metal shortage is really starting to piss me off.
  4. Indeed, he is quite the craftsman. I'd probably have to drop my entire insurance settlement to get one of those. I'm not saying it's not worth every penny he charges for one, whatever that may be, but I'm guessing it's not within my budget. I'm also rough on benches, so I'd be afraid to go near one of those things with my tools and bohemian work style.
  5. I had just built a nice split top Roubo style bench with a pair of twin turbos that I lost in the fire. I'm thinking, I might at this point buy a bench, as I'd rather focus on making furniture to replace some of what I lost. Other than Benchcrafted and Sjöbergs who else should I be looking at?
  6. Good catch. That's on me. Turns out the switch is mounted backwards for shipping. It reduces the width. All I had to do was take it off flip it around and screw it back down. I'll edit the post.
  7. Shipping and packaging: Super, not a complaint at all. Eleven days from order to it sitting in my garage. Make sure you get yourself a new roll of paper towels as they are very liberal with the grease. For obvious reasons, that’s fine with me. Unpacking and setup was straight forward. Instructions were good. Lots of grease needed to be removed before power up so as to not spread it around anymore than it already was. Did a quick check on the mechanics, aligned the blade and guides then turned it on. It powered right up. Everything seems well balanced as there is no noticeable excessive vi
  8. Ha... they just sent me a $150 coupon for Bridge City Tools Works. I like these people.
  9. I'm working all angles. I missed a super nice 3hp PM-66 for $1,200 the other day. By 1 hour! I had to cry myself to sleep. I've got a lead on a supermax 19-38 for $1,000. They claim it's barely used. So, I need to go check it out.
  10. FYI... They are having a decent sale on some nice tools. I pulled the trigger and got the ALPHA HW110LC-36P, AMBASSADOR C14, GYRO AIR G-700, the thin riving knife and a mobile base. They threw in a complimentary MG-36 - so I'll have two of them! The shipping seemed a little steep, but the bottom line of $6,200 for the lot is what counts. Seemed quite reasonable delivered to my driveway. Slowly rebuilding. I plan to take the Gyro G-700 to Mars to explore with Perseverance.
  11. I'm not familiar with the Guild Facebook group. I had planned to do a guild build last fall, the Fremont Chest of Drawers, but things didn't go too well for my shop so I had to cancel.
  12. Thanks, yeah we were unharmed physically. I've been keeping my eye on the Facebook Market and Craigslist, no luck so far. I'm just wondering if any members within a few hundred miles (Medford, Oregon) are looking to offload anything in decent condition for a fair price.
  13. Hi All. I'm starting to rebuild (lost my home and shop last summer to the wildfires), and I'm hoping to put my home shop back together. Insurance was insufficient to buy all new stuff, so I'm looking for some decent used machines. Powermatic, Laguna, Grizzly, etc... table saw, 8" jointer, 20" planer, 14" bandsaw, and drill press. I'm in southern Oregon. Thanks for any leads.
  14. ... and now it's a pile of ashes, along with many of my other projects. For me personally, I'm not that attached to stuff, but loosing the stuff I made and my tools is like loosing part of myself. I know many of you on here would feel the same way, perhaps that's why I'm sharing this with you.
  15. The original bed has plugs at each end of each spindle and couple more at the corners, and I do like it, but yes I too prefer fewer.
