    Learning as much as I can
  1. Festool Boom Arm

    I got mine (like most things for me) on craigslist and love it. One thing to keep in mind is to check if it will fit through the opening of your shop. If you have low openings like me it could be a problem. I actually have to cut mine down to make it fit.
  2. Gaming Table

    This would have been the exact response I would have gotten from my dad. Love the profile on the pictured table. Looking forward to the build.
  3. Used lathe rant

    Install a CL app on your phone and have it send you alerts when a lathe pops up. I'm in the same area and haven't been actively looking for a lathe but I have seen a couple of good deals in the last few months. Granted many of them are mini lathes though. If you're not in a hurry I'd say keep on looking. 75% of my shop is from CL and most of the brands are high end that I would never be able to afford if I bought them new. Good Luck. Oh, and if you have time check out swapmeet at Anderson plywood this saturday. It's definitely a long shot but people do bring large tools occassionaly.
  4. SawStop Router Table

    https://www.highlandwoodworking.com/sawstop-inline-router-table-attachment.aspx I agree that it doesn't look like it has any improvements over what's currently available. I thought they would have utilized the ts fence somehow by adding an attachment to it. The Incra / Jessem lifts with the slotted inserts also seem to offer better dc.
  5. This is cut from an reminder email the organizers send out. But I'll probably be selling some stuff there this time. Just a note to remind you that May 19 is the next Anderson Plywood Old Tool Swap Meet from 6AM-Noon. The address is 4020 Sepulveda Blvd in Culver City, CA 90230. We start setting up at 4:30AM. If you are new, wait until LAURA or JOHN get there because some areas are restricted. Please respect Laura as the authority until John or a store rep arrives. The Swap Meet will be held Rain or Shine. If it is raining, we set up inside Anderson Plywood. Please DO NOT BRING trailers or oversized moving trucks. Most of the spaces can handle normal size pick up trucks or vans. There are several new spots that require unloading your tools and then parking your vehicle in the Elks parking lot. If you only have a few tools, you can put them in my space. There will be Old Tools, Antique Tools, Good Quality User Tools plus Much Misc including some small general antiques and collectibles. Please bring at least 50 to 75% old tools or tool related items if you want to sell at Anderson Plywood. Dealers watch your tools. If you leave your space, have a neighbor watch your tools. If you have small valuable items, put them in a locked case. Shoplifters are not welcome at any of our events. Anderson Plywood is really more of a HOBBY Old Tool Swap Meet. A lot of our sellers are cleaning out their Woodworking or Machinist Workshops or selling duplicates and excess from their hand tool collections. We only have a few full time tool dealers who fit us in to their regular selling ventures. If you have oversized loads of tools, you need to take your load to the Long Beach Car Show (or the Antique Show) where they allow big vehicles and welcome a wider assortment of new and old tool stuff to be sold as well as car parts. See you May 19 at Anderson Plywood
  6. Caster sets on sale !

    I got the workbench set for my assembly table and a few of the 2” ones for rolling cabinets that go under my assembly table. Timing is great as I was in the market for both.

  8. Bandsaw blade alignment

    It’s a laguna lt 16hd. Also for clarification when I say it doesn’t make contact I mean the wheel is no longer under the blade anymore. That portion of the blade that is. Not that the crown of the wheel is pushing the blade up so it doesn’t make contact. Ill take a pic of it and post. Thanks
  9. Bandsaw blade alignment

    I was watching Marc's video with Alex Snodgras on bs setup and he puts the blade so that the gullet is on the center of the wheel. I have a 16" bs with a 1" blade and if I do it that way a large portion of the blade is no longer on the wheel. Didn't measure but I'd say 1/4" is off the wheel. Is that normal / safe?
  10. Shop Tour

    Awesome shop. Where did you get the ducting? Was it significantly cheaper than nordfab?
  11. Tablesaw safety

    I highly suggest getting a splitter asap. Kick back is one (if not the most) likely cause of tablesaw injuries. I second the recommendation of the microjig splitters. I had it on my previous ts and it worked great. That type of splitter also makes switching out to a dado stack a little easier and faster as well as opposed to having a traditional splitter. I would also make a zero clearance insert. Good luck. Stay safe.
  12. My crappy little shop

    Nice shop. You utilize the space well and have air of great tools
  13. My Mortising Machine

    Nice!! Looks very well made
  14. Router bit adapters

    Great router with a major flaw. The speed control has a good chance of failing and goes straight to max speed. I have had 4 of those routers and 2 of them have had the speed control break. It can be fixed fairly cheap. The magnetic ring breaks and needs to be replaced and probably the bearing as well. But getting the bearing in and out is a bear. If you do a quick google search on it, you’ll see I’m not the first to have the problem. Disappointing as it really is a great router otherwise. Even more so since dewalt clearly knows about the problem and hasn’t fixed it yet. Or maybe they have on the newest models? Unless you know for sure the problem has been addressed I would advise against the 618
  15. Metal ducting options

    Thanks for the suggestions guys. As I said I would love nordfab but I just can't justify the cost. I still regret not jumping a deal on craigslist last year. I like the idea of using a local place. I will do some research and see what I can find. On that note, if anyone in the Los Angeles or OC area knows of such a place please post here or PM me. Thanks
