    What tools did you buy today?

    Picked up some Yost parallel clamps. I have some bessys and jets. I rank this with the jets. The heads don't slide down like the older bessys. The handle turns to get more clamping pressure. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    My veritas low angle smoother came in today. It's supposed to be a blemished plane. I can't find any sort of blemish on it. Also got some tool wax and a 14 degree guide. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Few good stuff today. My "blemished" veritas router plane. Found a very small casting defect in the cast iron. I'll take the defect for the discount. My low angle smoother will be here later this week. Amana 80th table saw blade. Never used Amana before from tools today com. Seems nice. Doesnt say where it is made though. Lee valley portable light. Bought this to use at the band saw and drill press. Runs on 3 AA batteries. Super bright. Also got a Makita 28th ripping blade for my track saw. No pics though.

    Looking for a planer

    Nothing wrong with the 734. I have one and it works great. If you help support the material on the in feed and out feed you won't get any snipe. I have seen no indication that it will be discuntinued. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    They might be discounted elsewhere. These were at my local store. They have been in the rafters by the air compressor tools for I don't know how long. Since they were so far away from the lawn and garden it is probably why it got to 01. Status. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Guild modern chest of drawers and nightstand

    Finished! Three coats of arm r seal (2 semi gloss and 1 satin). Finished by wet sanding with 600 grit and buffed with paste wax and 0000 steel wool. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Guess who put the last coat of poly on today? That's right...this guy! Soooo close! Will wet sand and wax this weekend. Still need to shampoo the floor before moving the furniture in anyways. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Makeshift spray booth. I used the rails of the garage doors for the spray booth. It worked out really well using spring clamps. I initially tried to spray general finishes Enduro var but then I realized the can says to not use on sanding sealer. [emoji17]. Luckily this was my first time spraying with the Fuji semi pro 2 hvlp and I only started on the bottom side of one drawer. After deciding it wouldn't work, I switched to arm r seal. This worked much better. I applied a coat to one drawer, the chest of drawers, and the nightstand. If I was thinking I could have done another drawer. Oh well. I definitely preferred the Enduro var to the arm r seal for spraying...mist wise. The Enduro var was just cleaner. The arm r seal sprayed great but just messier overall. I do have some runs that will hopefully sand out but we shall see. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk

    Guild modern chest of drawers and nightstand

    Had to fix some tear out on the top right front joint of the chest of drawers. I chiseled it smooth then glued a patch on. After the glue dried I planed and sanded it smooth. While not a perfect repair job it is definitely better than missing wood. Today I also put sanding sealer on the night stand and chest of drawers. All that's left is to sand it and apply the coats of finish. I am going to spray them with general finishes Enduro var. It's a water based poly that is supposed to give the appearance of an oil based poly. Sent from my Pixel XL using Tapatalk
