    Well the itchy twitch has been scratched. At least this time I am not antagonizing you all with "my new toy" guessing game.

      Thank goodness. Usually, when you get a twitch, the rest of us lose days wondering if and when you're going to pull the trigger.

        😂😎 You win. I’m still “debating” (well mainly waiting on the money from the tax return to hit the bank account. 🤫 I saw it “pending” earlier today though 🥳🤩.) did you “order” and awaiting delivery? Or buy local and have it setup by now? What to do, what to do. 🤔

        as far as saws. I have an older Excalibur and a Seyco thought DH bought me when they were first released a few years ago so I am happy there. Like you, if I were looking to buy one, I would probably look long and hard at the Pegas now but I have never been up close and in person to a Hawk or a Hegner. 😔☺️

          I would love to buy local, but the only dedicated woodworking shop for big tools "Woodworkers Warehouse" closed many years ago. The only other place is owned by a total A.. H..., he will never see a penny of my money. The way he treats customers and employees makes me cringe. I am amazed no one has ever taken him into an alley for re-education.
          I am not big on patience so waiting for this drill press will be a tough one.

                Thank you Rolf, for letting us live vicariously through you. 😀

                  That sounds like the voice of experience. Do you have one?

                  I usually rig up my come-along. I clamp a couple of really big Clamps to my ceiling joists and hook the come along to that. That is how I put my Lathe and drum sander together.

                    Yes, I posted earlier about mine.

                    The problem is the case is rounded and no lifting point. For heavy tools, I normally use straps and a 2 ton engine hoist but it was not possible with the Nova. I wrote them and suggested that they add one or a threaded hole but of course never heard back.I

                    If you have a strong helper you will be ok. Or, lay the post sideways to put the head on and then set back up.

                        I'm itching too. Only because I came in contact with something Sunday night cleaning some vines from around a young oak tree. I now have a rash on the right side of face on chin, neck and back of neck. Wearing a mask at the grocery store yesterday did not help. As for equipment, I was going to get the Pegas scroll saw after my original surgery in February, which was changed to June, and now with everything cancelling this year, I am just going to wait and see what next year brings. Still have my biggest show that has not cancelled, and I do have the farmers markets from Sept to Dec, but that doesn't justify the cost of the saw at this time. I have, however, taken to bowl grinding and really love it. I did get some small burrs in the mail today for wooden spoons, which I will be trying later today. I put the saw on hold until next year depending on what happens. I have 2 drill presses, one for outside that I use for flap sanding and the one for drilling next to my workbench.. Bruce has to change the belts for me when I want the speed changed and he has grumbled about getting one that you just push a button and it changes speed.. As for the weight of anything, I have 3 strong nephews as well as a strong son who can lift heavy items like they were peanuts. Rolf I agree. The sander was the best tool we bought in the past few years. Amazing what a good sander will do.

                          Betty is the feed belt centered? Do you hear it when the drum is spinning or when just the feed belt is on?
                          I have had the sanding belt stretch, they do that over time, and there was enough hanging out to just kiss the table.

                          I got mine the other day. Also noticed a dearth of Christmas themed projects. I don't recall seeing much Christmas stuff in the Fall issue either. I look forward to new ornament ideas, but those were lacking this year.

                          I do understand some of the constraints in publishing a magazine these...

                          Well, this topic can present a lot of opinions and options. First, if you are seriously considering helical cutting heads, would you take the next step and upgrade to a stationary, floor model planer? Perhaps even a used one. I don't know how much space you have and what your shop power options are,...

                          Our super max has been making a noise that sounds like paper caught but we can’t pinpoint anything. Cleaned what we could, Bruce used dry lubricant, which sounds like an oxymoron to me, and still makes the noise. Started quietly now is louder. Any suggestions before we call for warranty work? I’m...

                          Due to Covid-19 all events in Ontario have been cancelled including the Wood Show in Toronto. It was a great event but this year it is going to go virtual.

                          They will have a number of seminars and the ability to tour vendor sites. Not sure how it all works. It will be FREE but you can pay...
