  1. All, I have been watching table saw improvements on YouTube all day (I got sucked in). I just discovered that the Vega Pros have micro adjusters. Seems like a very nice feature especially when I find myself trying to shave things all the time. As @Grandpadave52 suggested, I have been on craigslist looking for a throw away that might have a better fence system. Fred
  2. Hello all, I have an inherited Craftsman 113 from my Grandpa, to my dad and now mine. I have restored and it works pretty great for my weekend adventures. This past week I have finally gotten fed up with stock rip fence and I am wondering what your opinions are for the Delta T3 rip fence as a replacement. Thank you.
  3. I am a generalized web programmer for several non-profits so the only thing I can be sure of is that it was Windows 10. This morning I tried it in the test area on Chrome and it worked. Lord knows which browser I could be in. I use them all for testing on my other sites. My workhorse is Chrome
  4. I will have to try that out. I thought I did just that in another post on here but it just showed the link in the reply. More to learn I guess.
  5. Ron, go look at @John Morris original post here. In the original post here, it appears he inserted a quote from a completely different post. Even if I go to one of my old post, I do not see how to bring it here to be quoted. I can copy a link over here. I know this probably needs to be moved to the tutorial section but John's original post is serving as an example of the question.
  6. I know how to use the quote button, evidenced here. However, it looks like they might have been quoting something from a completely different post. How do you do that?
  7. How did you guys get the header for other posts embedded in your post?
  8. I continued working on organizing and arranging http://thepatriotwoodworker.com/topic/18954-continuing-to-organize/

    @knotscott, Thanks for the recommendations but that is a bit too formal for what I am after.

    I suppose I could half-lap the butt joints. I also kind of like the breadboard end treatment. I suppose if I made tongue and groove joints the butt end joints wouldn't matter much at all other than possible shrinkage. When done the top will be gloss black poly to match the other office furniture.
  12. Just as @Fred W. Hargis, Jr said, I think all of the big box John Deere are all the same product with different model number by store name.
  13. I am not sure that Sylvania is completely off shored. There are several factories in Seymour Indiana. If memory serves, one of the factories was for car light bulbs. I don't know about the others but they were all light factories. 732 B Ave E, Seymour, IN 47274 Likewise Grote industries is another American company and is in Madison, Indiana http://www.grote.com/

    Ah wait a minute. Can you biscuit joint a but joint? Could there be another tool in my future? Although I like the finger joint idea.

Who We Are

Operation Ward 57 Challenge Coin Display Project

We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!


Air Force Command Center Plaque

Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.


Patriot Woodworker Volunteers

The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.



One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
