Re: Hammered Verde Green Spray Paint

Both of the below locations claim to have it in stock. I've never used either supplier so buyer beware.

Re: What finish for chisel handles?

I use shellac on my hand plane knobs and totes and it is both durable and looks good. I have a friend that says when his hands sweat the shellac gets sticky so he uses tung oil. I use BLO on outdoor tools and do a half hearted application of daily for a week, weekly for a month, monthly for a year a...

Re: Face frame Clamps, the question

As I was researching this morning to solve my own dilemma, I found a couple of options if you plan on using pocket holes and screws. I typically use dominos for face frames but may need to go the pocket hole route for this build. Kreg has a clamp that engages one of the pocket hols and clamps the jo...

Re: Face frame Clamps, the question

I have the same clamp you do and it has probably been a decade since I last used it. The only other face frame clamp I've ever seen was for camping the face frames of two completed cabinets together and flush for installation. I now use a pair of wedges for each joint, I screw one onto the table and...

Re: Incra sleds for Shopsmith?

My memory is that the miter bar on the Incra 5000 sled is quite a bit longer than any stock Shopsmith miter bar. It allows the big sled to engage the miter slot with the sled pulled all the way back to the edge of the table. The Incra 5000 miter bar is 25 1/2 inches whereas the ShopSmith miter bar ...

Re: Incra sleds for Shopsmith?

I had an Incra 5000 on my shopsmith and went the other way and moved it over to my cast iron saw. The only difference is the miter bar, and I had to replace the drop panel since mine was cut for the Shopsmith and needed a new one for my new saw. The 5000 is a really awesome setup for mitering, or fo...

Re: Mystery jig?

Guess from my brother in law who is a maritime consultant. "I have not seen these before. But noticing that the concave surface on both pieces is not weathered like the rest of the surfaces. So my guess would be that these two pieces were strapped to relatively close parallel deck rails on a bo...

Re: Latest information on the Shopsmith 75th Anniversary Celebration Event

Another non user of Facebook so I would vote to keep things on the forum as well. As far as expenses, I also expect to pay for travel, lodging and meals. For the reception banquet, $50-100 seems reasonable to me, others may have other ideas. I don't drink so I think a cash bar is a good idea from a ...

Re: battery powered lawn mower

My daughter has a Ryobi 40v snowblower she got for Christmas in 2013. The battery on it failed last winter so 9 years on that. She lives in Duluth/Superior so it threw plenty of snow in its life. Replacement batteries are $179 before taxes. After we moved from the country to the suburbs a couple of ...
