  1. I went out to the shop this morning looking forward to a busy day of surfacing wood. When I hit the remote for my cyclone I saw a bright flash of light up towards the ceiling. The power cable from my cyclone that attaches to the power cable drop from the ceiling was on fire. The cyclone only ran for a few seconds and then shut down. I quickly flipped the breaker and am now waiting for a return call from my electrician. I was surprised that the breaker hadn't tripped. I'm hoping that it is only a bad plug and nothing to do with the motor. Not being an electrician - I don't know if plugs go bad while just hanging or not. I guess time will tell. I don't mind saying that when I saw the fire it scared the crap out of me. I hope everyone else's day goes better than mine.
  2. You could build something like this -
  3. Not meaning to be harsh, but they look like firewood to me. I don't see any value in either piece.
  4. There's a bunch for sale on eBay if you can find what you're looking for.
  5. It's also important to have the stock you are cutting completely flat on your saw top.
  6. Congrats, Ken. I have a new one also. I bought it for myself for Christmas. I need to build something so I can take it out of its box.
  7. They provide a form which makes it easy to tell them what you're needing. There's even a box to check for them to call as well as a couple of lines for additional info.
  8. Thanks Tom. That's exactly what I'll do. I don't really have the option of a local blade sharpener. Small town U.S.A.
  9. I have three Forrest blades that I need to Forrest for sharpening. I printed the request form from their website and at the bottom there are options to pay. One is to include a check and the other is for credit card information. I'd like to pay the bill with my company credit card but I have concerns about providing the card number and info on their sheet for anyone to see. I was hoping those who have used Forrest to sharpen blades can give me some insight on how you paid for the service. Thanks!
  10. I don't know if anyone has previously come up with that idea, but I think it's brilliant! Thank you for sharing!
  11. Pretty amazing project, Isaac. That is something that will be handed down for generations.
  12. Beautiful car. Welcome to t he forum!
  13. Excellent job. I like them. Cherry is my favorite wood for projects. Thanks for posting the pictures!
  14. Nicely done! I was also wondering about a footboard???
  15. My initial thought was if clamped in a vise it would be a cheap alternative to a more expensive unit.
  16. I got this email today and thought I'd share. I'm sorry if you've already seen it - it was new to me. I think I'd be interested if I didn't already have a stand alone spindle sander.

  17. I have the Rockler system and it's worked fine for me. I don't use it often but it's easy and accurate.
  18. I like them both. Well done!
  19. I agree with Kev. My guess is that the check was already there and was so small you didn't see it.
  20. Rotating those little boogers is a painstaking operation. I can't know for sure, but unless you use your machine everyday for long hours I doubt you really needed to rotate them. On my jointer I'm more likely to rotate the nearest three rows closest to the fence as they are the ones that see the most use. I've had my jointer for almost eight years and have only rotated mine twice. It certainly isn't a fun job. I just put on some good tunes and enjoy the fact that I'm in the shop.
  21. Great looking work. Welcome to the forum! It's a great place to hang out.
  22. I can't tell if you've sealed the ends or not. If you haven't you need to put some kind of sealer on each end to prevent checking and twisting/cupping. One thing you should do is move your stickers much closer to the ends of the boards and add a couple of sticker per row. I air dry lumber all the time and run a dehumidifier in addition to a fan 24/7 even in the winter months. I usually don't bring super green lumber into my shop to dry if it can be avoided. It really should be left stickered outdoors for a month or so with some sort of roof over it. +1 on getting a moisture meter.
  23. Welcome to the forum, Mark! There are a lot of people here with a lot of woodworking knowledge that will be more than happy to help you.
