    New CA glue that we need.

    I am a user of super glue and have for years. I find this product an integral tool in all that I do.------I have successfully stored this glue in a fridge and it has stayed good for 5---6 years. I always utilize accelerator to speed up the process. Fast Cap sells a large aerosol can at a reasonable price. Works for me.
  2. I solved this situation with a drain valve used by truckers for their airbrake tanks-----available at a truck repair place----or maybe google. Spring loaded----pull the wire cable----release after a moment---problem solved. Works for me.

    Got a package

    I found that this clamp may not be used much but it can be invaluable for certain glueup tasks--- wouldn't part with mine---works for me.

    Lumber score!

    excellent looking trim------My suggestion----next time try some WB poly---under normal drying conditions recoat is possible in 20-40 minutes and no fumes--works for me for more than 20 years.

    My Friday Deal

    Obviously specific to the saw for which it is intended.

    My Friday Deal

    Yes----a direct bolt on----a pleasure to use---Kreg quality all the way. Enjoy.

    My Friday Deal

    Ron, I have that exact saw. I would recommend you consider a Kreg resaw fence -----I have that accessory and could not be happier with the ease of use. With your buy of a lifetime and adding this fence you are still ahead of the game.-----Works for me.

    Saw Recall, Now What

    Seems there is little positive feeling about this Sears RAS . I for one have used this tool all of my woodworking years.-----No it is not equal to a Dewalt RAS but it has its place in a lineup. It crosscuts 17+"----works really well equipped with a dado head and does an accurate 90 degree----If properly setup. I keep mine at 90 degrees. If I need to fine tune at 90 I have learned to adjust the fence--not the saw proper. I also own and use an excellent Milwaukee SLCM so I do have that as a reference point. Just my 2 cents but it works for me.
  9. If you are having one of those less than good days,do this: stop and think of some gal you have had less than a positive experience----say thank God you are not married to her.

    Ouch, Table Saw Hit

    With the original blade guard a great splitter is an integral part. I disassembled the guard--- used the metal guard frame---copied that part on 16 gauge metal--- and had a first class splitter---I never use that saw without a splitter.

    Tub Replaced By Shower

    Just finished a tub to shower project. I used a premade shower base coupled with wall panels----not the cheapest but this process really saves time and ends up bullet proof---no leaks-ever. turns out the plumbing is nearly as labor intensive as the rest of the project. Works really well for us old folks.

    Needs and Wants

    I am also a happy woodworker. What I do now is to build projects that are interesting and which create value when donated to various charities, to valued family members and good and dear friends. I do not sell anything and therefore get no complaints or sideway glances questioning perceived value or lack thereof. One of the significant rewards for said activity are many examples of heartfelt thankyous------also great inner satisfaction as I utilize the fine tools I have acquired over the last 55+ years-----works for me.

    Display Case Question

    My suggestion---- I have had good results by using a rabbit joint, cut deep enough to leave a thin remaining strip-- glue and pin nail the joint. Take a very light 45 degree router pass on the corner and the joint becomes nearly invisible---strong, easy, even if it is not very sophisticated. This joint works really well also when making boxes or drawers out of 1/4 or 3/8 material.

    It's Hard To Help Some Folks.

    I have one for which I applied for the 100$ deal----used the guard parts I received to upgrade the original. I use this for only 90 degree cuts------learned to fine tune 90 degrees by adjusting the fence. Use this saw almost every day and would hate to have to part with it-----works for me.

    My Ol Rockwell Delta Drill Press

    I too am a fan of old Delta drill presses. Mine is from the very early 40's---- has one of the first of the line serial numbers. 15 years ago I converted the motor to a treadmill motor and DC converter. This has given me the option of infinite speed control that works without flaw. I use this for all shop work with exception of drilling steel 3/8ths or thicker. Did I say I really like this machine? Works for me

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.
