  • Jack pot yahoooo

    I was driving around yesterday and saw these sitting and not really knowing what I was looking at, I was looking from a ways off I asked the guy if I could have them? he said yeah I going to throw them away any ways. so I said I will be back tomorrow. well to my surprise it is all really grade "A" plywood very few knots. they were made to ship parts on to a construction site. now what on earth am I going to do with them hmm they are all 16" x 32" and the runners are 4x4 cut in half.

    Isn't it funny how we just can't resist free wood. Good luck on coming up with a project. Congrats on the good find.

        Well you can always send them to me here in Mentor. I am sure I can find a use for them. Great find!

              I have used runners like that to make several bandsaw boxes...and of course you can always find a use for the plywood...

                  Looks like your going to be very busy. Just watch out for nails and embedded junk that could really screw up the blades on a planer or break the blade of a bandsaw.

                    Free wood is my favorite kind. I noticed that the skids the steel coil come on at work were a lot heavier than the pine and spruce pallets we usually get. I started saving them and found out that the tops are poplar and the runners are ash, hickory and oak. Planed and resawn they make excellent (if narrow) planks. I also have found some really nice poplar and even a little red oak among the rough cuts that are used as dunnage for outgoing steel. A few of my co-workers are always on the look out for any piece of OSB or plywood they can salvage, but no-one besides me is interested in the hardwood.

                      Great find,
                      It'll come in handy for a thousand things. If the wife lets you keep them around long enough to think up uses.

                        Just Wondering...

                        Is the table size on the 22" hegner saw as on the 18" hegner saw?

                        With the 22" inch one you get 4 more inches of depth of cut but do you also get a few more inches of table?

                        I had to fool around with copying and taping a pattern again today. This wasn’t as bad as the fish, but still a pain. I use rapid resizer. Scan a pattern, put in size I want and it prints it out. If more than one page, it numbers each page at the top and I tape them together. Had the fish pattern...

                        Rolf, I cover it with clear contact paper (comes off clean without leaving a residue) and draw a grid for the direction I want to cut (ie horizontal or diagonal) to keep the rows even. The rest is all freehand....

                        I use acrobat reader. The poster feature will enlarge and if it goes to multiple pages it will put in cut marks. Even if the page is over letter size it will spread to multiple pages at 100%.

                        If it is in PDF form you can open with Inkscape or GIMP and select what you...

                        Hi Linda, great find...I think.

                        Please keep us up to date with any information you receive. I would really like to get into this, but my computer skills are almost nonexistent, I need something that a 74 year old air head 🙄 can figure out. Thanks for sharing.
