    Thanks. We're you able to purchase items as well? Any discounts? I know there is the guild discount available now.

    Lie Nielsen Hand Tool Event in Beverly, MA

    What do their hand tool events entail? there is one in Chicago next month that I would like to go to. It would be a 2 hr drive. Not a bad drive by any means but would like to know what to expect.

    Wall Hanging Tool Cabinet

    Already have one I can't get put and I haven't cut anything yet.

    Wall Hanging Tool Cabinet

    Your cabinet is beautiful. I hope to start mine here soon (bought the same plans). I picked up some mahogany for the cabinet and some wenge for the drawer fronts. I have a feeling it will be like the zebra wood you chose.

    Tucson guys- maybe others- Home Depot

    HD puts items on clearance all the time. For no reason sometimes. I was able to pickup the older brushed 36v Makita saw for $20 NIB. Now its on the shelf for $200.

    Rikon 10-324 Bandsaw

    I bought one a few weeks ago. So far so good. I used it to cut the bridle joints in tww gaming table guild build. I bought 2 laguna 1/2" blades to use with it. So far it seems to track best with the original blade which isn't all that bad. The way the fence is made and the saw blade inlet is on the front it would be difficult to put another fence like a kreg fence on. The stock fence is nice and high for resaw and I dont see an issue with it at all. It locks in nice and tight. This is was my first bandsaw purchase so I dont have much to compare to.

    Taps arrived today

    I would say yes. I need to clarify a little though. A cue can had a wood to wood joint with an insert for the threads of the shaft. But I would bet most still manufactured have wood threads in the shaft. McDermott's standard joint is threaded wood for instance. Older cues were predominantly the same way as well.

    most pool cues have a wood to wood joint. The shaft is threaded maple and can have a g-10 pin or metal pin. You can crank hard on them when putting them together and there is no stripping them.

    Workbench build

    Got the bench on it's feet today. It's tall at over 37". Before glueing and doweling in the legs I'll decide if I want it lower. The mortis have tear out on each but the hickory lines match up damn near perfect! Not bad for a first timer and hand plane use! Tenon's are still long at the moment. I also got the hickory hub glued, jointed, and planed and ready to be cut for the leg vise hub. Glued up the hickory for the nut today as well. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Workbench build

    More progress today before I had to stop and pressure wash the deck. I got all but one of the half laps joints spot on. First time doing them and it wasn't even the first one that I screwed up. [emoji17] Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Workbench build

    I've been contemplating the criss cross. With the savings from the screw I think I could justify the criss cross. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Workbench build

    Finally able to get some work done this weekend. My wife had surgery this week and I took the week off. Took the plunge and got the legs measured out where I think I want them. Cut them out with a forstner bit, router, and lots of chiseling. They are not perfect by any means but I did get the hickory lines matched up darn near perfect. I also got the stretchers cut, planed, and glued up. Still need to cut them to final length and cut the half laps on them and the legs. I have been looking at bench crafted or wooden vises for the leg vise. I was talking with my father in law and apparently he can make me the screw and nut! I went and bought a piece of tiger maple and am going to glue up pieces of hickory for the hub. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
  15. While looking for a leg vise screw for my bench build my father in law told me he would be able to make one at his work for me. I bought a maple blank for the screw (3" x 3" x 23") and for the hub I am going to laminate some smaller pieces of hickory to match the hickory on the bench. I forgot to buy a thick piece of maple for the nut to be made out of. Will it be fine to laminate some smaller 4/4 stock to make up the size for the nut? I didn't know if the glue joints would cause any issue with any needed flex from the wood. Thanks. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
