    I just replaced the base on my Makita finishing sander after breaking the old one. However, now that I'm trying it again, it seems louder than before, and less subjectively another problem I expected the new base to solve is still present: as soon as I turn it on and place it on the wood, the...

    I recently took my belt sander, set it on its side and set up a fence that allows me to make beautiful strips as thin as veneer. If I ever get into inlays, it means that I can use interesting wood that I might have, and I won't have to buy large pieces of veneer so I can get a small piece that I...

    I bought this Belt Sander about 4 months ago, then I decided to make a video about it. Not a bad one, just don´t use the equilizer. It almost broke my sander in justa a week of use.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=b5Yas3mrAvo

    Hi Folks, I recently picked up an older Metabo 450 duo from a local school for free! I had to replace the backer pad and the fan as well as the brushes. It turns on and spins (speed control works fine) but when I set the unit down it seems to "stall out." It stops spinning and the motor hums no...

    I am a beginner wood worker and stress is on "beginner". I am trying to get started by buying tools that can do double duty. I have an immediate need to take off some of the top of a few doors that are sticking in their jambs. However, I would like to buy something that will help me in wood...

    So about 2 years ago, I striped a mid-century(ish) table that was painted solid red with oil paint (I think). I used some kind of gel chemical stripper. Underneath, was a beautiful wood pattern — something that I haven't seen too often. I sanded it down some with a block and sandpaper, but I...

    I got great advise on buying a used belt driven table saw vs a new direct drive saw from this forum. It saved me a couple of hundred dollars and got me a better machine (Thanks everyone) My question is as I start to build up my shop what tools are still good used vs buying new? My wish list...

    I am looking for a good orbital sander. I did some searching on here and in other places came up with the PC 390. Does anyone out there have this model? If so does it have good dust collection? Should I be looking at something else? I know that the Festool offers the best dust collection but...

    long time reader - first time poster I am planning on making a series of coffee tables and dining tables out of solid redwood slabs. Most pieces will measure 2'x4'. Largest pieces will measure 3'x6'. Here's how I plan to go about it, does anyone see anything in this process that they would do...

    Hi Everyone, I'm new to the site, and hoping all you experienced wood workers can help with some advice. I do a lot of creative work with some really hard exotic woods, and recently also a lot of work with large bones, antler, etc. Over the years I've used several brands of the commonly...

    I am looking into buying a pneumatic or inflatable drum/flap sander and have not been able to find too many drum and flap sander combos. The only two I have been able to find are: http://grizzly.com/products/Drum-Flap-Sander/G8749...

    Anyone familiar with this sander? I've been watching CL for a 6x48 belt sander for over a year now. I've seen several older Craftsman units go for $100-150 locally. Any thoughts on how this would compare to those? I know Dayton is a Chinese brand sold through Grainger, but I don't have any...

    I just recieved the Shopnotes Vol.7 Issue 37. My questions are, if anyone on here has built this sander? how long did it take to build? is it cost effective (ie time to build, buy materials vs buy a good used one)?? And how durable is the finished product?? Ok thats enough questions for a...
