another drill press

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 8:15 pm

i picked up another drill press today.  from a junkyard farm, it was sitting on a mobile base made from a sawed off shopping cart.  i saw one of these demonstrated yesterday, it has a really nice power feed mechanism.

planer

Filed under: projects — howarth frank @ 8:11 pm

my friend andrae came over today and we planed a bunch of old growth fir for a workbench he is making.  the e-16 made short work of the fir and had no problem with a 10 inch wide very cupped piece of Oregon white oak.
