Grizzly G0715P 10" hybrid table saw.

Need a bit of help …. I have a Grizzly G0715P 10" hybrid table saw. I am attempting to align the miter slot to the blade but am having difficulty. I am using a dial indicator made by Woodpeckers for measurements but cannot seem to get it any closer than .030. I have loosened the front a rear trunnion bolts multiple times to the point that I am of the belief that they have hit some sort of stop. I have also loosened the bolts holding the top and tried to manipulate it from this direction as...

hey! I gotta new band saw

Well it’s an old bandsaw…a sixties Coronet Imp built in Derby… so I tested it by making a box…it sucks, I know but it took no time at all and it’s made from a left over bit of pressure treated fence post. I had fun. Never owned a band saw before…cost me fifty quid. (yes that clamp is holding my window shut and those are potatoes on the sill, not alien eggs.)

Porter Cable 5" Random Orbit Sander

Been wanting an electric orbital sander for a while, as I’ve been using my air powered auto body sander for years now. Has done a good job, but the small compressor, in the hangar, runs and runs. Figured I’ve spent as much on electricity as the sander would cost, so I took the plunge yesterday. Picked it up at Lowes, for $49.97. Yesterday, I gave it a shot on the inner surfaces of the sides of my latest Wedding Card/Keep Sake box. I’m impressed. The sander is easy to grip and doesn’t...

Choozing a sliding compound chop saw

Depending on what kind of woodworking you do you may want a sliding compound chop saw.there are 10" models and 12" models because of their larger cutting capacity I have always used 12" models but if you don’t need the larger cutting capacity 10" may work fine for you,the 10"saws cost less and so does their blades. As a contractor and woodshop owner I have owned a number of sliding compound saws,the Bosch,Dewalt and Rigid. They all have their pluses and minuses . I presently own a Ridgid...

A #4 surprise and its for sale.

You guys know I don’t post my planes for sale here very often. My web site seems to generate enough traffic to sell what I can find, and I typically can’t keep up with restoration request. But this isn’t just a “for sale” post. It’s a “holy cow, I’ve been ignoring these planes” post as well. This is a Millers Falls made Sears. To me it looks like crap. Why would you paint a plane red? And I could get past the body red. As a matter of fact, done properly it may look good, but please, not...

L-square Stop - Depth Gauge - Table Saw Setup Tool

This tool serves several functions. It can be used as: - an edge stop for L-squares; - a wide gap depth gauge; and, - as a set up tool for table saws. This tool allows the user to, easily, lay out lines at ninety degrees off a straight edge using a standard L-square. Using it is far quicker and more accurate than the usual practice of trying to hold the square to the edge of the material. In the depth gauge mode, this tool also allows the user to establish depths...

Nice find today at a yard sale

Wife and I walked around the neighborhood today and found a yard sale. The guy was a woodworker, retired and moving closer to family soon. He sold most everything a long time ago but had a large coffee can full of hinges for $5 so I grabbed it. Lots of small hinges. Sort of a grab bag of stuff. Lots of Soss hinges, which is the reason I took them. They all look like they’ve been sitting in his garage for 50 years. Even the coffee can was at least 30 years old They will need a lot of...

Dust control with duel sliding compound miter saw

I was really excited to get the new saw until I used it a couple of times. Sawdust everywhere even with the useless little bag that came with it. Even replacing the bag with a shop vac it was only reduced by about a third? Just wondering what you do to control the dust if you use one. I would take it outside but here in the frozen southland can’t do that right now. Any ideas or solutions would greatly appreciated. Thanks.

Stocking stuffer

Saw this somewhere and thought it a good idea for a stocking stuffer. I have yet to make one. Madts.

Introduction

Just saw this forum topic, so I thought I’d throw mine out there. Like other members I have seen on here, I’ve been a member on LumberJocks for quite some time. I stumbled on to this site and I’m pretty hooked so far :). Anyway I’m live in central NC, have a 2 car garage shop (not climate controlled unfortunately). I’ve been wood working for about 12 years now. Primarily furniture and case work, but have dabbled with some turning (pens and a bowl).

Help

My table saw bogs down when cutting wood. I put a new blade on and had motor checked out to see if it was bad and it was not. Recently had motor converted from 110 to 220. What could be the problem?

Why not...

I saw this forum come up a couple of weeks ago. After hemming and hawing, I figured I would post something of an introduction. My name is Monty. The J comes from my mother and sister (older sister) as in MontyJ stop that, MontyJ put that down, MontyJ get off of there! Obviously J is my middle name. It doesn’t stand for anything and isn’t spelled out “Jay”. It’s just the letter J. They are the only people who called me that, and still do to this day. I don’t have the courage to ask my mother...

New toy!

Look what Santa Amazon brought me today! I plan to make big salt water fishing lures this winter. While looking for a hogger rasp I came across this guy. Works pretty well. Made quick work out of the end of this 2×3. Only cost $16.

Thank you.

Wanted to say thank you to Martin and MsDebbieP for being chosen as the member of the week. Thank you both for all that you do for us. We have such a great bunch of folks here.

Howdy

Just wanted to say howdy. I have been cruising other forums and I think I’ll land here and see what happens.

Zebrawood

I recently managed to salvage some long scrap cut offs of zebrawood from the scrap pile where I buy my lumber. After planing I’ve managed to get a good bit of 1/4" thick by 2" wide pieces. Maybe 60’ or so. I’m looking at some ideas for boxes or wall art to use it on. Since I have never used Zebra wood due to cost I’m looking for recommendations and ideas for finishing and other wood species that compliment Zebrawood after finishing.

Resawing

I need to re-saw 2×6 in to 1×6, i don’t have a band saw, what are some other ways to do it? TIA

Wow...there's some art...

Saw this…had to share it… http://www.thisiscolossal.com/2014/04/trompe-loeil-constructions-made-from-layers-of-plywood-by-ron-isaacs/
