    Everything wood working. Just started after retirement.
  1. Thanks, that is reasonable enough.
  2. Which begs the question do they make handheld metal detectors? All I'm familiar with are big.
  3. Oh good, another toy I can buy (if Momma/Boss doesn't mind).
  4. I did the same thing, first few times I use it and I miss nail/screw and scratched mine pretty good. Thanks for everyone's reply. Should be some way to check for buried metal in used lumber too good to burn.
  5. Thanks, I think I am going to like this site a lot. Hope I can contribute in the future.
  6. Thanks for the help, I'll try sanding lightly, haven't checked blades yet. Ok, I'm new at this so how do you search for certain topics? Excuse my lack of experience.
  7. I will try to get pics, i am old school and computer challenged. Posted question late last night, didn't expect replies this fast. Thanks.
  8. Well I just joined wood talk and just started wood working. I purchased DW735 and am pleased how it performed, then I tried salvaging some used lumber and thought I had checked for nails, etc. Missed one broken off below surface and scratched base plate. Question is can I sand off raised scratches and still retain accuracy for thickness and quality? I've tried to find anything on replacing the base cover listed as fig. 203 in parts schematics or price for it. They just list complete base with 203 which is pretty expensive, $160 - $220. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
