  1. I have those blades. They're intended for modelers and they work OK on balsa wood. I did cut some 3/4" dovetails with those but they have the tendency to wander a lot and they are slow (they will break easily).
  2. What size is recommended for dovetails? 3 or 5 inches? I'm asking about the fret saw with swivel blade clamps.
  3. I want that saw too. I use a jewelers saw but the blade doesn't swivel. Make sure you order the right saw, check this thread:
  4. When something works, then stops working after a while, then again, the problem is often in the capacitors. I see 3 of them on your board, the black things standing upright. But in order to test them accurately with a multimeter they have to be removed from the board... Bad capacitors often have a bulged appearance, I can´t tell if yours are OK from the pics. That said I wouldn't mess with a power supply board like yours, I would just replace it or have it inspected by a technician.
  5. Since I don't have large quantities of anything but small quantities of everything, I bought five double sided organizers from Wallmart. The price was low and so is the quality (no metal parts, plastic everywhere), but after a couple years of intensive use no one has failed yet.
  6. Same here, but I use a piece of MDF instead. My bench top is home center pine so I don't have to worry about keeping it pristine, but that layer of MDF gives me more confidence when doing things like removing the waste or paring with chisels.
  7. I added a bidet to my b'day wishlist.
  8. If you need a block plane to start a fire you may as well use a lighter

    Long time ago my wife wanted a medicine cabinet for the bathroom and she also wanted it painted. So I made it out of pine and pocket screws and painted it white. End of story.
  10. I did the same thing a week ago to plug my new lamp and other tools. Great minds think alike
  11. I made yet another dovetail marker. This version is by far smaller than my previous contraption and looks nicer too. The reinforcement on the front also serves as a tiny handle of sorts.
  12. I transformed a desk lamp into a workbench lamp. It slides on the t-tracks at the side of my workbench.
  13. I was in a similar situation, a small hardware store with plenty of dusty items hanging from the walls. I bought a Bessey portable vise which included a pair of tk-6 table clamps, paid less than the cost of such clamps.
  14. My drill isn't either. 14.4v, the best of both worlds, ha!
  15. I made a disk sander long ago that still works fine. Do I enjoy using it? No.
  16. He's a great woodworker. He has a lot of excellent tutorials in his website ( It would be nice to see the "mentor" badge under his name on these forums.
  17. Sorry to hear that, Coop. My prayers are with you and your family.
  18. I made a box over the weekend. It was a hand tools only project and it's full of flaws, hence the tiny pics
  19. Just make sure you have enough room for the new router table or you may end up buying a new house
  20. If there's such an option I suppose it's only going to be available to the original poster. But I haven't seen it.
  21. What's the "solved count"? It's only visible on certain threads, e.g. the concealment frame one.
  22. Looks like a single piece of MDF routed with CNC. But apparently you can get it done without a CNC machine, check this link:
