  • Jim,
    I have the same model Sakura that I bought at a yard sale. The owner thought it was too big for his use and preferred the 16" Delta because it was easier to put under his workbench. I used it to build some xmas ornaments and discovered that it wandered when cutting 1/4" Baltic...

    replied to PS Wood Scroll Saws?
    I have a PS Wood 21" model. It's the older orange painted "Sakura" mfg. unit, about 15 or 20 years old. I bought it at a yard sale, then used it for a while before I noticed that the upper arm bearings were worn,( I could move the arm sideways more than 1/8"). PS Wood still supports...

    replied to scroll saw reviews
    Frank,
    Your post rings a bell with me. I too went through the agony of what tool to buy and why. The popular wisdom is to guy the most expensive tools on earth because some day you may need that quality and precision. I'm cancelling woodworking magazines that have become tool hawks instead of...

  • Bill,
    I found an old Ryobi spindle sander at a flea market and I use it for surface sanding. I made a temporary fence out of a length of 4x4 that I clamped to the rear side of the spindle table, set to the gap that I wanted, but no more that 1/16" of surface removed at a time. I feed the...

    replied to Digital Angle Locator
    I have the Igaging Angle Cube brand angle gauge and I'm very happy with it. Once you get one, you can find many ways to use it. I use it on my table saw for any cuts, my band saw and scroll mostly to ensure the blade is square to the table, and also on my drill press to square up the table to the drill...

    replied to Chuck problem
    Fretnot,
    I had a similar problem with a drill chuck many years ago. When opened all the way, one of the chuck jaws slipped deeper into the chuck instead of staying in its adjustment ring. As I remember, it took a while with a small magnet to fish it back into position before the chuck could be...

    Brenda,
    I would try to find a school or woodworking club in your area for some guidance on using a router. Much of the problem is using the tool for your specific work. There are learning curves to contend with, how fast to push the material, which direction, how aggresive to cut, tearout prone...

    replied to Spray Poly Won't Dry
    I have had that problem with oily woods like cocobolo and any of the rosewood family. It sound like the watco oil didn't fully dry. You may have to use a remover to get the poly off, then use a barrier coat of shellac to seal the oil finish. It also comes in spray cans. BTW, some oil finishes can take...

    replied to Question on dust masks
    I use the 3M TEKk series disposable masks for most of my work. I used mine for the first time on my riding mower during the dry spell when it kicks up clouds of dust and dirt. What a difference!! I had serious breathing difficulty without it, but now I won't mow without it or sand, or cut, etc. They...

    replied to Foot switch
    I agree w/ Jim Finn on the harbor freight switch. It cheap and it works. I like to change positions while working, so the tap on/ tap off style suits me best. Its an individual thing.

    replied to Garage/Workshop Cooling
    FYI, WOOD magazine has an article on just this topic(October 2012 issue). Its on page 52 and is called "Warm your shop this winter and cool it next summer".
    Hope this helps, Lou

    replied to Crafstman sander
    I think the Craftsman brand took a hit when Kmart bought out Sears. I never heard of long lasting Kmart tools.

  • I heat my 2 car garage with a portable propane heater when I need to work out there. It takes about 15 min. to warm up enough to use. I keep the garage door open about 6 in. for fresh air and the heater in front of the door by a foot or so to use the fan in the heater to provide heated fresh air around...

  • I also use the Dremel with the plunge router base. I use a cordless Dremel in the base so I can reach the center of whatever I'm working on with ease. The dremel is underpowered as a router, but this is a great use for it. Now I don't have to go to the basement if I forget a blade hole. The accessory...
