    Thanks for the links. I don’t have any plans on doing marquetry any time soon but for $5 it’s definitely worth watching.

  5. Does it have sandsmart feature. It’s not a deal breaker if it doesn’t but you could use it as a way to explain why you’re asking for a lower price.  If you don’t know what it is look for an led near the switch  

     

    When i upgraged to 22-44 I sold my 16-32 for around what they’re asking.

  6. 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.

    . My first thought was to get a lawn mower and mow yards or get a part time job while going to high school,

     

    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.

  8. 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.

  9.  

    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

  11. 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

  12. 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?

  13. 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.

    Yellow is a good step up from what you have ! I did a quick search and this combo deal looks decent.

     I haven't used this particular router but I have put hundreds of hours on my little Dewalt trim router and it has held up to a lot of abuse. All the rest of my many routers are either no longer made or probably a lot bigger than you need. A plunge base is great for routing mortices and internal cuts. You might not need it now but they can be very handy.

    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. 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

  16. I'm hoping to finally install my cyclone early next year and was wondering what kind of ducting you guys use.  I currently have 4" SD for my Delta dc but want to step it up to a 6" metal ducting when I put in the cyclone.  It's a 3hp Oneida.  Nordfab would be the ideal choice but too expensive for me.  What other options do you suggest looking into?  Thanks

  17. Aside from brand I would also investigate the specific model itself along with the year of manufacture.  When I my first big boy saw saw 8+ years ago it was a craftsman hybrid saw.  Even by that time the brand's reputation was not very good, to say the least.  And alot (most) of your tablesaws were poop.  But they did have a higher end line (I believe) were designed by Emerson.  The zip code saws as they were called, because the model numbers were that of city zip codes, were very well made and were one of the best saws for that price range.  I absolutely loved my 22124 and did everything I wanted.

    As stated many of the older tools are better made, using better components.  That's why when you see something on cl, take a second and look up not only the model tool but the year it was made.  It may not be exactly the same tool they sell today.  I just bought a 2008  Laguna LT16HD at an estate sale last weekend (stealth gloat) and I notice it has a Baldor motor and made in Italy.  But looking at the current saw on Laguna website it has a Leeson motor.  I believe the Blador is available but extra.

    I make my choices on what ever is the best deal on craigslist :)  Depending on your location you can get some amazing deals.
