  Beall Polishing System
Posted by: MidwestMan - 2 hours ago - Forum: Woodturning - No Replies

Hello everyone,

I'm thinking of buying the Beall Polishing wheels/mops. I've never used a polishing system before and therefore, I am a newbie regarding this topic.

I've seen several video's, of folks using the system. However, I've never seen anyone use it on shellac finishes. Is there a problem with using polishing wheels, on shellac?

Right now, my favorite finish to use, is the shellac/BLO mixture. Since it's cheap, quick and easy.

  How long does dangerous dust remain in the air
Posted by: photobug - 9 hours ago - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (5)

I have yet to build my dust collection it is next on the list.  I do have a Jet AFS 1000B ambient air filter.  I just upgraded from a disposable cloth mask to a 3M to where when cutting on a power tool.  It is pretty comfortable so I keep it on for 10 minutes or so after cutting.

I don't run the Jet air filter often.  I am just looking for advice on how I should approach my dust mask and filtration usage to keep me as safe as possible without wearing the dust mask longer than needed.

  FS: Leigh D4 Dovetail Jig
Posted by: Rick_B - 11 hours ago - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - No Replies

I am offering a Leigh D4 dovetail jig.  Included is the jig itself, VRS dust collection accessory, set of dovetail bits for the jig, like new PC690 router, wrenches, manual, shop made stand with 2 storage drawers for clamping to a workbench and a cover.
More pictures can be provided - just let me know what you would like to see.  This jig has seen little use and is in good condition.  I am asking $495 + shipping which I think is a good price with all of the extras but , as always, I am willing to listen to reasonable offers.
I can deliver within a reasonable distance from Winston Salem, NC.
Thanks for looking

  Moser Garnetlac - is this dewaxed?
Posted by: giradman - 11 hours ago - Forum: Finishing - No Replies

Hello All - I'm making a pedestal stand for our local Unitarian Fellowship - thread HERE in the 'Woodworking Forum' - the stand is being made from red oak plywood + solid red oak for 'trimmings' - I need to come up w/ some finishing options, so plan to submit 3-4 regimens on scarps of the plywood - the committee wants to match their 'new' chairs (see first pic below) which are oak w/ an oak stain (in the back) - I'll likely end up w/ oil or waterborne polyurethane w/ shellac/stain below - have a few gel stains being shipped to me from Rockler.

My initial questions concern the Moser Garnetlac shown in the 2nd pic - the description on Amazon implies 'dewaxed' (my preference) but in reading the container there is absolutely no mention of wax or not?  Does anyone know if I can assume this is indeed 'dewaxed' - now I've not mix shellac in several years but a 'waxed' product should layer, so assume if I do not see this top layer the product is 'dewaxed' - thanks for any comments - will likely mix up some tomorrow and see.  Dave

  possible wny lumber run!
Posted by: wnylumberguy - Yesterday, 05:10 PM - Forum: Tool Swap N' Sell - Replies (6)

hello this is Richard Stevens I used to be on here under a different screen name or "username" I forgot all my login information and such and cant get in the old e-mail to regain access, I was thinking of getting a lumber run going sometime here in the future if I can get enough interest.

I have a lot of lumber in the kiln right now drying, I do have a lot in the racks

4/4 and 8/4 KD walnut
4/4 KD ash
4/4 KD hard maple
4/4 KD soft maple
4/4 KD cherry

and random other species

I do have pictures of lumber we have as well when I figure out how to put them up here again I will, however I had one heck of a time doing it all the other times I posted

I have several thousand feet of weathered air dried lumber as well that's outside but has snow all around it.
we also have been starting to saw lumber for building pallets and bulk boxes and tree stakes, we build them and we have lumber for it as well.

we are located between Rochester and buffalo I am not far off of the Batavia NY thru-way exit. I was thinking of a lumber run heading east but I do small runs all the time as well to buffalo and Rochester of 50- 600 bf or more so if you would like some lumber soon we can do small ones almost every week

I am working on a price list of a bunch of different things which I will post up here as soon as I can get it all figured out, but if you have a specific something your looking for for a project coming up or want to get stocked up before summer and such let me know.

please feel free to pm me or post on here or sent me any type of msg threw here

thanks a lot

Photo Gloat Worthy?
Posted by: MoreToolsForMe - Yesterday, 03:34 PM - Forum: Woodworking Power Tools - Replies (6)

Hey Folks,
Not sure if a drill press can qualify for a gloat, but my neighbor recently "GAVE" me a Powermatic 1150, variable speed drill press! The only pics are of it in all it's "as received" gory glory! 


Since getting it, I've replaced the handles and chuck and fully disassembled, cleaned and checked all bearings, etc. Runs great, though I wish it had the 900 RPM motor, as with the 1725 RPM, slowest speed is 475 RPM! I'll get some current pics when I can! I'm in for +/- $125!

Just Gloatin'

  Shop Storage Upgrade
Posted by: Big Dave - Yesterday, 02:23 AM - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (10)

Hi, Guys

Back when I built the shop, I knew I would eventually have to improve the storage a bit. The "East" and Miter benches have drawers that can hold a lot of stuff, just not very efficiently - or at least not very efficiently as I slowly acquired more stuff... Smirk 

So, the last couple days I've been adding more drawers. Winkgrin 

A couple "before" pics:

And a few "after":

I did it this way to maintain the look of the drawer fronts, plus it was easier that cutting up the fronts to make two separate ones. It really has added quite of more user-friendly storage. I'll be getting a few plastic storage trays to help keep things even more organized, but I had to start here....

Thanks for looking! Smile 

As always, comments & questions are always welcome...

  How to fix the tote on my old wooden jointer?

I've got a nice old wooden jointer that I'm rehabbing. One thing I don't know how to do is to fix the crack in the tote. Does anyone have a suggestion for how I can do it? I'm attaching a photo.

Question Sketchup Cutlist help?
Posted by: ®smpr_fi_mac® - 01-17-2018, 10:06 PM - Forum: Woodworking - Replies (7)

I just installed Cutlist onto Sketchup.  I'm trying to lay out a cutlist on plywood, as that's what I'll be building a cabinet out of.

On the layout tab, I've selected Sheets and 5' x 5' (that's my BB provider's size).

I then hit "Run".

Up comes an error message stating that not all pieces fit, so they've been left out.  The cutlist given reflects dimensions on the Boards layout tab, which I'm not using.

Any advice?
