    my shop is in the basement and I like to make things with wood and I don't make one kind of projects, I just make things I need or see. I don't work much with plans but I do see good uses for them. I will use this site for questions and maybe help others if I can.

    Where do you put your grinder?

    if you are going to do some turning, then it will need to be close to the lathe. other than that a good place is by the drill press.

    jet drum sander---- sandpaper

    I have a Jet 16-32 drum sander and last night "just the tip" of the sandpaper ripped off. It was brand new and I don't want to through it away. I heard you can glue a new tip on it..... My question is...... What kind of glue should I use? while I have you here........ is it better to buy sandpaper in a roll and cut it myself or just buy it?

    speed control for my lathe

    I want to add speed control to my lathe, right now I have to change the belt on step pulleys. My lathe was make in 1951, and is in great condition. There must be a system out there I can add to my lathe and have Electronic speed control........ By the way I don't have the money to buy a new lathe. I think I can swing the up-date. Thank you all Thomas
