    Tool stand

    This is on wheels and gets moved around, just about 2 1/2 times the size.

    Tool stand

    I have so many benchtop tools and such a little space (or so it seems) that I built a flip top tool bench that is much larger than the individual stands. I got the idea and modified the one in Wood magazine #220 (Sept '13). It's served me well as I have my 10-20 belt sander, Rigid oscillating sander, 6" bench jointer, 12 1/2" planer, 1" belt sander and 4x36" combo sander all attached. I had to do a lot of calculating on evening the weight and workflow patterns, but it's been great and has helped free up a lot of bench (and floor) space.

    Buying a router plane.

    I have an old Stanley 71 1/2 that I refurbished and only have the 1/2" spear point blade. Maybe I've been missing out on a fence and smaller blades, but ignorance is bliss. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    HELP need repair ideas!

    Looking as closely as I can at the pictures, it appears that there is a skirt around the edge. You should be able to glue the boards as others have suggested, at least it will be closer than it currently is. The rest of the top appears to be in rough shape for a table as well. Were it me, I would repair the corner as well as possible and sand the whole top flat and smooth. You can always stain the "patina" back in. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    ARRRR

    Got a birthday card this week that says: Measure twice, cut once, say crap three times, go back to lumber store. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood."

    Gaming Table

    I like the leg design too, but the dimensions that he's giving sound more like a desk.
  7. I'll have to search through all my magazine indexes, but I recall a plan for a box for a benchtop mortiser that included a lot more features than just a stand. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Rippin'

    I'll take it off your hands for $2 and you can double your profit. I've used Evapo-Rust on several Disstons that I've found and it works great. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Nexabond Glue Up on Plywood Edges

    In Chrome, you can always right click and choose "translate to English". Kai is pointing to an edge banding machine. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Help my friend get started...

    He may be interested more in scroll sawing or turning. That would go off in a completely different line of tools. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    Help my friend get started...

    I guess I don't have enough information to reply well. What kind of projects is he going to build? I may be stepping on some toes, but I'm one that feels you only buy a tool that is justified by the project. When I started out as a kid, I only had hand tools and made some decent ones.

    Guy’s woodshop on YouTube

    Tim, I stumbled on your channel a couple of weeks ago and you, probably better than most here, know the work it takes to produce. I really like the way you are putting your projects and videos together. Keep up the good work and we'll be talking about all the ads and sponsors we watch on your channel. I don't mind watching the sponsor plugs, I just get jealous of all the stuff they get. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    One thing I noticed is that he goes through a lot of detail in his videos. His first project has 10 videos associated with it that are each a decent length. Sometimes a good thing, other times not. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    I ran across his floating hall table and watched the series. I agree that he really does a good job. I'll have to watch some of the rest of his work. Chris "It's never too late to have a happy childhood"

    DC piping questions

    In dust collection, the straighter and shorter the better and PVC (with the smooth inside) is better than the hose. Personally however, I would never run PVC directly to a machine. I would leave a hose connection just in case I need to move it even a little. Running some pipe from your DC along the wall past your assembly/outfeed table and then a hose to the saw would be a good way to get it out of your way more when you're at the table. Right now I don't have piping setup (still trying to figure out where to put everything), so I have two hoses connected to the DC with blast gates like you're thinking about. I have one mounted to the saw and the other I can attach to the machine that I'm using. It's worked great for me so far. I only have to remember to close one gate before trying to use the other hose.
