  1. Everyone's 'resolutions' they're posting on social media that every one knows is complete bull! Haha oh and people wanting something built and expect it to be cheaper than the made in China crap they can buy in the stores =) happy new year everyone! Be safe and always remember a cab ride home is a lot cheaper than a DUI or the cost of yours or some one else's life. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  2. Only problem I see with finishing nails and glue with butt joints is not being that strong, as I see it, the picture looks like a book case for a little kids room hanging on the wall, with things being put on the shelves, this is just my opinion, but I would feel better about using screws and glue.

  3. If your going to paint this, I don't see why you couldn't just use drywall screws with counter sunk holes and wood putty it, and and then paint. Another option would be to countersink holes for a plug. You can buy a plug cutter at your local home center. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  4. I use the CA glue method for inlays, works very well. I would sand the piece with an orbital sander and the dust will fill in the gaps, then just add some CA glue.
  5. I hate cleaning up the shop, but there is something amazing about sharpening your tools and it goes through the wood like butter, and then you get this bubbly feeling Hahaha Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  6. Nope 5/8ths Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  7. @particleboard I didn't measure it but it looks to be about inch and a half to 2 inches long, I'll definitely measure it before buying a stack. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  8. Because as of right now I don't have a fence system, so what I do now is measure from the blade to a home built fence to make a cut, it's not accurate but I've been getting away with it, I just ordered a fence from vsctools.com the t square. I have a 4'x8' foot table that I put the table saw in, I love it but I really needed a fence system but kept putting it off, but now that I'm getting more things I need to build the time has come to put in a nice fence system and I think it will work out great, just waiting for it to be delivered and I still have to get an 8 foot rail for it to sit on. I'll post pictures when I get it installed. Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  9. They made dado blades for this model just hard to find, the newer dado stacks say minimum 1 1/2 Hp but it looks like I can get away with using 3/4 Hp with 6" stack Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  10. What about those fine tip glue applicators...Found something on ebay...12 for $8 free shipping seems like a good deal to me http://www.ebay.com/itm/12-CRAFT-NEEDLE-TIP-APPLICATOR-BOTTLES-BOTTLE-Paint-Glue-1oz-EACH-/190981735921?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item2c776605f1
  11. Thanks krtwood I think I'll go with the 6 inch stack, and for right now I just need 1/4" x 1/4" dados Sent from my SAMSUNG-SGH-I337 using Tapatalk
  12. Yeah I just looked, rpm wouldn't be adequate, the Arbor for the table saw is long enough for a dado stack, the thing is, they did sell dado stacks for this model, however I can not find them since it's pretty old. So I was thinking if they made dado blades for this machine why wouldn't I be able to use newer dado blades? I might just buy the dado blades and try it with the 3/4 Hp.

  13. I have an old 8" craftsman table saw that I bought awhile ago for $30 on craigslist. I eventually got around to building a 4'x8' table around this small 22" x 22" table saw. It works great and couldn't be happier the way it came out. However, I did all this work when I was just getting into woodworking and didn't bother looking at HP of the motor or what would work. I had no problems cutting all sorts of material with this table saw, and as I'm getting more skillful in woodworking I wanted to get a dado blade for it. Problem: Table saw motor is only 3/4 HP and the dado blades I see require a minimum of 1 1/2 HP motors. I have a brand new craftsman 2HP motor off a bench mortising machine that I bought (off craigslist) for $50. I was thinking of just replacing the old 3/4 HP with the 2 HP but second guessing putting something more powerful on an old but good working machine. Anybody switch out bigger motors to replace a smaller motor and have any problems? I'm worried about the more powerful motor doing damage on bearings or something bad going wrong!

  15. Well after trying to figure out what exactly you were trying to say lol if the guy is looking for cheap ikea easels, don't waste your time giving him a quote because there is probably no way you're going to be able to beat high production easels from ikea, however, I would think using pine and hardboard would be your cheapest alternative.
