    Hi Tony,

    I am totally new to any type of woodwork, but recently uncovered a love of power tools. :)

    I am making a kitchen table for my apartment, and went looking for ideas on black "stain", and I found an old post on this site with the exact look i've been wanting.

    Was this a hard look to get? I've done a lot of painting... but no staining. I would be starting with new wood. Can you tell me what you did to get this look? I'm basically after a dark "black" color that you can still see the grain through. Does the wood type make a difference?

    Sorry for all of the questions, and thanks for any help you can give me!

    Katie

    I saw a post from 2008, you had a shop in a storage unit. I live in seabrook, texas and I am very interested in doing this. I was wondering what facility you did this at? How did you get power? Did they charge you extra for this?

    Tony,
    Came across your (8/17/08) thread about play problems in the blade height adjustment on your Delta contractor's saw. You may have already realized there are eccentric sleeves on the hand-wheel shafts that adjust "lash" or play between the spur gears and the worm gears. This mechanism adjusts the space between the worm gear and the spur gear which will allow the blade height and angle to drift if the gears are not set close enough (and cause too much friction if they're set too close I think). Mine corroded and froze, and I think this is a common problem with the design, especially in wet environments. The lock nut and sleeve will turn with the shaft when this happens and cause difficulty in blade height (or angle) adjustment. I think that's what happened to your saw too. Check out this thread on another forum for more info:

    Hey Tony. I am new to woodworking and need someone to mentor me. I work offshore as a boat captain so I am off two weeks at a time. I have spent 25 years as a machinist so I know tools and safety. I have been buying tools and have just about everything i need. I just am not one to get the picture from reading it. I need to do it and to watch it being done. That said I have been trying to find some place to work part time. Wages would be negotiable as it would have to be a win win situation to make it worthwhile for both of us. Any way it goes I would love to come down and meet you and see your shop. I live up north of The Woodlands in Montgomery. My dream is to work woodworking into at least a part time job where I can go even time until i retire in ten years. I am serious enough to be enrolled in a Marc Adams school in August. Oh and did I mention that I sailed and lived on a sailboat for years. Hope this is something you are interested in.

    Hey Tony, Happy New Year. How have you been? I sold the Catalina 36 and bought a 56ft Houseboat. The previous owner started to remodel the interior and lost interest so the Mrs and I spent the summer fixing it up. It is really spacious and comfortable. With 4 bedrooms and all the comforts of home there is hardly a weekend that goes by where we don't have someone visiting. But hey, that is why we bought it.

    But wait there's more. I went to Dunedin High School and my mother currently lives off of Dunedin Causeway.
    Tell me you're 47 years old and I am really going to be in a deja vue mode.......

    I had a Catalina 25 before the 36. It was fun to sail but the cabin was way too small. When the Mrs said "We need a bigger boat", I was a pretty happy camper to say the least. It is so much easier when it is their "idea". It is a small world. I grew up in the Tampa Bay area (Clearwater) and lived in Biloxi from '80 to '85 when I was stationed at Keesler. At that time I just had a Prindle 16 that I kept on the beach in front of the Biloxi Yacht Club. I will definately look you up the next time I am in Kemah.
