Question Brown paper supplier?
Posted by: ®smpr_fi_mac® - 6 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (4)

I don't even know what to search for--I'd like to buy a big roll of that brown paper to lay down on my bench for glue ups.  Where do you buy yours?

  Airbrush advice
Posted by: gad5264 - 8 hours ago - Forum: Finishing - Replies (2)

I'm looking to up my finishing game for some of my CNC carvings and am contemplating an airbrush, My final decision is down to two different models. I would like some input from some of you guys or gals that use airbrushes for finishing your work.

I am looking to use acrylic paint and also Trans Tint dyes on my projects.

My final choices are down to the following

Thayer & Chandler T61-1 Vega 2000 Airbrush

Iwata-Medea NEO TRN 1 Trigger Airbrush

Thanks in advance with any input on this.

  I built my first back saw.
Posted by: Elijah A. - 10 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking Hand Tools - Replies (11)

Hey y'all,
So I bought some raw materials and I had a scrap piece of maple and built a back saw. I've never done anything like this before and I am relatively new to hand tools. This was a fun project! It's not a bad axe or a Lie Nielsen, it has blemishes, makers marks (mistakes Smile ) but it's mine and I'm proud of it! I have left over brass and steel, I may try another one!

  Have you built a spline jig yet?
Posted by: ®smpr_fi_mac® - 11 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (4)

If not... Why?

This is from King's Fine Woodworking YouTube page. Super simple to build, super simple to use.

Here's my first attempt with it.

  Gravity Feed vs. Bottom Feed
Posted by: Parrish Woodworks - Today, 07:44 AM - Forum: Finishing - Replies (2)

Looking to upgrade spray finishers from and Earlex 5500 to a Fuji Spray System. Trying to decide on the spray gun itself. What are your opinions on a gravity feed gun vs. a bottom feed gun? Pro's vs. cons?

  Felder Hammer A3-41 power requirements
Posted by: MyKidsDad - Yesterday, 10:55 PM - Forum: Woodworking Power Tools - Replies (3)

Does anyone here happen to have, or happen to be familiar with, a Felder Hammer A3-41? I've been emailing a Felder rep and specifically asked him if a 230V 20A circuit would work to power the machine. His reply was less than a straight-forward answer to me. 

Here's my question (black) and his answer (red)...
I’d like to confirm that a 240V 20A circuit is adequate to power the A3-41? That's perfect, the machine requires 230V 30 amp but you can go down our up either way. 

I don't know how it's ok to go down if the machine requires 30A as he says. So, can anyone tell me if I'm fine with a 20A circuit, or if I need to try and upgrade to a 30A circuit if I'm going to buy one of these?

I have a project underway and figured it might be fun to share it with the group. Be forewarned there are going to be some electron driven demons involved.

I am working on one of a 3 piece set for our back entryway/mudroom/familyroom.

Here is a rough sketch of the next 2 pieces using the latest in drafting tech. This thread will be talking about the bench.

  Bath tubs
Posted by: jerk151 - Yesterday, 07:32 PM - Forum: Finishing - Replies (1)

So this is something I have been wanting to do for 20 years.


What has kept me from doing so is the finish. I’ve always assumed it would be an epoxy or fiberglass. Neither of which do I really want to mess with. In the link above, they described themselves as “boat builders” in the past and that in turn is the secret to their product. It also states that it is “non-toxic”. So, that seemingly knocks both epoxy and fiberglass out, right? What do you imagine the finish is on these?

Thanks for input
