    Moving large machines...sanity check

    Whatever plan you use please take some video of the operation and post them here. There aren't many videos on youtube that show someone transporting woodworking machines around

    Workbench Build Ideas

    How does Kev clamp long boards on end without a deadman on that Roubo?

    West Systems Fail

    If the size of one pump worth of product isn't recommended on the bottle then get an average of what a pump weighs in grams, then you don't have to rely on the pump to dispense the proper amount. I have a scale to measure food servings that weighs in grams and ounces.

    Grandfather Clock

    It looks like some of the parts are missing, especially to the top. Or as Tom said, not original. Take apart the various sections and rebuild the missing parts. The sections with missing or broken veneers will have to be completely redone. Cost of repairing or obtaining new works will be expensive.

    Beginner building workbench

    That vise you linked to, is it in the same family as a record vise where you encase the vise in wood and use it as a tail vise? David Marks had one on his bench.

    info on General finishes

    This may be the direction all businesses will take in the future. As long as every business is doing it, it's an even playing field. That's how we got to where we are today with customer service. We are headed toward strictly, buyer beware

    My Garage Shop - Tour and Reorganization

    JohnG, I like your approach in seeing if the bug would bite you and then proceeding from there. What sort of pieces will you be making in your shop

    Thrust bearing

    That was the first thing I thought of when I read the title of your post. I thought it was a crank joke but I see your bandsaw gave you the shaft. Just keep your bearing during the install and you'll be okay.
  9. It's my understanding that refinishing antiques bring down a piece's value considerably. So if he thought it was an antique I'd look elsewhere. The recommendation is soap and water first, mineral spirits could be strong medicine.

    Right. I'd say he had what appeared to be subdued enthusiasm. Now he's a motivator!

    Man that thing is awesome! What did you end up transporting it on and was the forklift able to finish the job? You must have bay doors since you can't get through a doorway with it.

    Beginner - Impulse Buy

    The tablesaw is all you need for a while anyway. Concentrate on building up your work area using cabinet grade plywood: crosscut sled, outfeed table with a router in the middle, simple workbench, and cabinets. A router would be a great, inexpensive 3rd tool and you could practice with it on your shop cabinet doors. Every guy needs a workbench area, if only for home improvement projects.

    Please post pics of it once you get it cleaned up and set up; and don't hold back any of the details.

    Can't believe it's single phase, I'd avoid it only because of the nightmare of what it will take to move it.
