Tell us what you think that can help. / Easier way to post pics??
« Last post by A.O. on September 12, 2019, 03:02:43 PM »
I like posting pics, but since photobucket screwed everybody over and I deleted my account I cant figure out how to do it. I know Furu posted a step by step process but it looks like a three day process. Several other forums just have a "insert picture" Icon that just takes you to a "browse" box. I see we have that "insert picture" icon but it doesn't seem to do anything.

Please.. I miss posting pics...
Woodworking / New toy for the shop..
« Last post by A.O. on September 10, 2019, 07:28:09 AM »
So I'm hopefully getting closer to building a set of new cabinets for my kitchen, so I was looking through craigslist the other day (I scan it all the time looking for deals, AL too ) and ran across a Milwaukee panel saw for sale, seemed like a good price so Saturday morning took the hour twenty minute drive to have a look. Low and behold it DID fit in the back of my truck! ;D
Seems like its in very good condition, missing a couple little things ,which don't really effect usage, which I'll get eventually , but I'm very happy with the purchase! New ones are anywhere from $1400- $2000 and I got it for $550 . Always wanted a panel saw in my shop but could never justify the cost. I'm not getting any younger, have had both my shoulders done, and running full sheets of plywood, especially 3/4 stuff, through the table saw is (and always was ) a pain!! looking forward to having this machine to make my job easier!

(sorry not a clue how to do pics here anymore)
General Discussion / anyone built a conveyor table before
« Last post by terracefarmer on August 27, 2019, 09:12:35 PM »
Anyone ever built a conveyor table before, if so how did you go about it and where did you get the rollers, or if you built the rollers, how did you do it?

I'm wanting a roller table to take the slabs from the mill to the edger and then the edged boards to a stacking pile without having to handle them so much and carry each board.

So I saw this in my local craigslist. I know nothing about it or the person selling it but thought someone here might have an interest.
Bandsaw Mills / What do you think about this jack for a toe board lift?
« Last post by A.O. on August 01, 2019, 01:41:36 PM »
So I'm trying to upgrade the jack I'm using for a toeboard jack on my manual mill. Currently I'm just using a small hydraulic floor jack which can be a pain to operate under the mill. Was looking at a scissor jack but with the screw in the middle, it goes up with the jack making its use limited. This one, actually a motorcycle lift, has the screw at the top so it would start above the rails (and below the bunks) and go up from there, giving it more room to move. The only problem I see is the 1100 pound rating... BUT... I don't do monster logs as I don't have the peripheral equipment to move them anyway and I'm just a one old man wrecking crew.. AND... even on some of my larger logs, they may get to that 2000 pound range, but I'm only picking up one end, so half (ish) the weight right??? The little crank handle comes off so you can use a ratchet and socket, or maybe a impact driver.
So what do you think??!29067!US!-1
Off the Topic! / Dispatched a beaver..
« Last post by A.O. on July 21, 2019, 09:28:00 AM »
So a while back while turkey hunting I saw something loping along towards one of my ponds, never saw anything again so I just forgot about it. Then a few weeks ago I saw something swimming in my pond! Then I started noticing the bark being removed from the base of some hardwood trees, mostly sweetgum trees, all the way from the river to my first pond up by the house, about 1/2 a mile or so. Then I saw it again in the pond.. NOT GOOD!
So last night the wife and I sat out on the dock, which we usually do on the weekends, enjoying the quiet and some adult beverages. But this time I brought my binoculars, a tripod, and my little 223 Contender carbine! We sit out there and feed the fish and the turtles and watch the world go by. So we see the interloper in the water off to our right, but when I get up, he spooks and disappeared. 1/2 hour or so later I was scanning the shoreline looking and way off to the left of us, clear across the pond, I see him on the shoreline!!
I get up, readjust my tripod, get a good look at him through the scope to make sure he wasn't our cat and fired one shot!! It was interesting because I had never shot off a floating dock before, so things were not rock solid, there was a bit of rocking going on. He was not moving a bunch so I had time to concentrate on shot placement. Well bang flop and he was down! I hauled him off this morning, weighed him first at 20 pounds, lasered the shot at 114 yards... hope he was the only one, but I'll keep my eyes open.

I deleted my photobucket account due to their new policy's so sorry, no pics. Haven't figured out how to do that yet... someday..
Bandsaw Mills / EZ Boardwalk?
« Last post by Kojba on June 01, 2019, 09:58:38 PM »
Just Curious if anyone is running an EZ Boardwalk sawmill.  I sold my old mill a few months ago, now I'm having sawdust withdrawal sickness...   I've noticed the EZ 40 is fairly inexpensive to buy, and seem to hold their resale value really well.  I'm not worried about large scale production, and my "friends" have all promised to do the heavy lifting.  I suppose something that cuts well, and is heavily built is all I need.  If you know anything about them, I'd appreciate your input.

General Discussion / Work boots
« Last post by Ox on May 28, 2019, 06:54:02 PM »
Curious to know what work boots you wear, like, prefer, hate, or otherwise.

Just went to a new pair of Double H western work, square steel toed.  Hurt my feet and legs, high heel, toes down walking style which I'm not used to.  Ordered a new insole for arch support and we'll see what happens.

I used to like Georgia boots but my last experience with them left me sour and I won't give them any more of my money if I can help it.  I had Georgia Giants and of course the famous pull-on Mud Dogs.

Off the Topic! / My turn, what might this be?

It makes sound like a flute... Maybe an animal call?
