  1. Im in a northern suburb of Atlanta. Hoping the covid gets settled soon, the vaccines are rolling out now. Wife and I have had our first shots, she gets her second in a few days. Wife says covid cases here are just starting to drop a bit. This is the set. I dont need it as I got a 10” set and my saw handles it quite well.
  2. You ever get south to my area I have a 6” set for you?
  3. Just looked it up, guys name is Dan Allen, Rivermist Wood Co. 678-468-9307
  4. Theres some folks around Ball Ground Ga. thats been advertising black walnut slabs. You game for driving that far?
  5. Just finished this hickory bowl from a neighbors yard. Seemed like every piece I got had a crack or a hole in it somewhere. Glad you are making money, I know it can be tough when things get slow.
  6. Good to know you are still kicking! How have you been?
  7. Heres an example https://www.mybinding.com/1/3/challenge-paper-drill-blocks Theres also machines that use a rectangular stick that gets slid sideways in a groove as the surface gets used up. Those may be easier to adapt to as you can make those sticks easily. https://www.mybinding.com/catalog/product/view/id/40809/s/lassco-wizer-drill-strips/category/2593/
  8. Some brands of printshop paper drills use the same concept. You can buy the round wood blocks by the case for them. Think they are about 3” across and 1/2” thick.

    Hijack!

    I guess thats what they refer to when you toenail a board in place.

    Who needs to design? Grab a board and stick another board to it, then another. You might have to cut or nail a piece here and there. Uh, there might be a hinge or two somewhere on it.

    Yeah, an enclosure would be a good idea just because of the mud daubers. Thats shouldnt be much of a problem for any halfway decent woodworker.
  12. Its used with templates you clamp the wood to to get repeatable patterns. I have a kit for fancy box joints that uses guides on the router tables insert plates. Once set up its a pretty interesting jig.
  13. Might want to char the surface a bit, leaves it more resistant to damage.
  14. I noticed you have a regular press on cap over the wheel spindle. Theres caps you can get with a zerk fitting so you can pump grease in after a trip to the lake to displace any water that may have gotten in. As far as the lights with such a simple wiring harness you would be better off to strip it all off and put new wires in, as well as replace the lamp housing with an led housing.
