  1. Ive had great luck thru craigs list especially with woodworking tools. Dont hesitate list it. If you list it with a good price it will be gone quick. One thing though I always try to meet at a local gas station if possible that way i dont have strangers coming to my house. If thats not possible i at least try to speak to them on the phone before they come- this is not bullet proof but its a step to get you more comfortable you never know how you could be dealing with.
  2. Chet- That is a really sweet built in you did! I have to ask how long did that take? Not including planning stage. Build time= install time= You should be proud! Im currently in a woodworking funk where I cant get my mojo back for 9 months now I havent picked up a tool!!! Hope it comes back seeing this sure has got me thinking again! Thanks for sharing,
  3. I have also wondered how basement woodworkers keep from blowing the house up or pissing the wife off with all the dust! I remember seeing a post on Matts basement workshop where their were foot prints leaving his shop up the stairs and well you know. Other than the dust thing I think it would be nice though. Its all about dust collection baby!
  4. That thing would be hanging in my living room!!! Really nice work. You should be very proud.
  5. I went tot this show three ? years ago in shaumburg il. and was very dissapointed. Seemed like a tool sale more than anything else. It was disorganized at best. They had guys doing demos with chairs set up as if it was in a classroom however it was out in the middle of the main floor and you could barely hear the poor demonstrator. I have heard they are trying to make this show better so maybe Ill give it a try.

    Tool Cabinet

    Nice work, and quite a bit done for a weekend!
  7. What does the stuff cost and what is the consistency like? Thanks Jim
  8. Wow that seems like a great deal. Please post a review if you get one. I just sold a disk/belt sander combo but it was an old desktop model and i had one hell of a time getting the belt to run true. It kept running off so i sold it. I bought it used for a steal and sold it for what i paid for it so no big loss. But I do think these are really useful in the shop! If they work?!?!
  9. Due to this lovely recession we cant seem to climb out of America is having one huge garage sale for the last few years. Keep your eyes peeled and dont settle but you will find what your looking for eventually.
  10. Please review the traffic you get from enrollment. I have inquired to several local members and no reply at all. Makes me wonder if it's worth it.
  11. Hanging tool cabinet is the way to go. Its portable and re-configurable (if you build it that way) and its a a quick build. I made mine from plywood and solid wood but all were scraps i had on hand. You would be surprised how much you can fit into one. Now im currently trying to figure out storage solutions for the years of screws and nails that Ive gathered. Just this weekend i gathered all of it and spread it out on my workbench. Quite a collection.
  12. Interesting idea. I always keep last years tree and burn it in our fire pit in the following fall. We have a large pit and it goes up with a flash- the kids just love the show. Now im going to go and have a look and see what that tree could possibly yield.
  13. I worry when i bring my laptop in the shop for an hour or two. I guess I should lighten up huh?
