Dust collector works so well! I bought the dust port a few weeks ago to put on the jointer but realized my shop vac would never be able to keep up with it. I used double sided tape and foam insulation tape to adhere and seal the port to the jointer. Hooked up the vac and see how it did. Flawless! Before and after pics. b881fe0c18b71c8962e52f958e0d5647.jpgbeb59c03a37ba5696c5f7890a1175456.jpgf8f3d853e86ec31d701bd4f9b01e97d2.jpg

Got a hold of some free walnut this week! Not sure how much I got. Also a few boards of an unknown wood. Any ideas what it might be@chrisk? Need to make some more stickers as well but ran out of time. 3e293d3043bf8e1cc86c9633ea8176c8.jpg9fcdbfdc2601c641c6cad41b017f8cb9.jpg8ed58a0d784754b4db3643bbd5031082.jpg93141f3f8c573c1fbb5b09d6290a3b26.jpg

@FrosBros82 no idea. I'll wait and see what I am left with after it dries.

Vise is back together. I am still trying to source a t section for the handle. Waiting to hear back from someone. Works great as is though. To get it to sit flush with the top of the table I will need to route out some of the underneath of the bench top though. Very happy with how well it turned out. Far cry from what it was a few weeks ago. ee95aa9d82da4343950ae5774bc626e8.jpga3633c035d8cc7679fdff20dba0e4144.jpgd687c462e6ce58ad2b6a8632804d9b6d.jpg3bb1e89b87605c22046d29e122262a1f.jpg

Did a quick clean up on a record A151 spokeshave. Now I just have to figure out how to sharpen it. d0c86d9d1331e1daff39ce0594f80c1d.jpgc7cc219f30f93d33ab67481620312789.jpg2bab316421d2c0986167b2a304e99296.jpg3626cf5245cee9bfa34e233bb7080cc9.jpg88b6eded59686fd1a82156598f936ace.jpg7d4509d222e85e17d948a4097b3aab93.jpg

Did some work today. Got the walnut restacked with 3/4" stickers. My son Owen was all about helping me put the stickers on. He was a big help and let me know ow it too. This walnut has some awesome color and I cannot wait to use it.

Also made some progress on the table saw sled. I had to stop. My cutters were not liking having to cut the screws and my Dremel was already broke. Will need to figure out another way to cut the screws for the t track. 1f3e71d614b44ec928b8e2b23312d533.jpgcfe52b1d542a138f086c756be4d29903.jpg33dbec23b6a72bfbaec7ca6f10cd05af.jpg4d50d70b5c111aa90b496949f5d3907f.jpg886b72c2aa181f330522b0a935930ed2.jpg

Got the table saw sled basically done. I need to make the cover for the blade, 45 degree miter triangle, and put a coat of finish on it. I realized as I was finishing up that I messed up on the construction. I put the larger side to the right and it was supposed to be on the left. Oh well. A right to left tape measure is on the way.

Sled is done besides a coat of poly. I got the rear blade guard box attached and used my Sargent 5307 to get some nice rounded over edges. Hand tools come up big once again. I don't mind running power tools late at night (and neither to my neighbors) but the router is a bit much at night. The plane did as good as a job as the round over bit did.ec567f2efc59d8581f777db4331f3de3.jpgf153419848256e70388f4153713a1183.jpgfd06b36baa247a1cfd819c87e8fd97e8.jpg
