Thanks guys for all your generous offers.

I've made a post up on the OWWM forums to see if I can find a 'rucker' (ride for a tool) from Denver to Portsmouth:

http://owwm.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=115188


I am going to try that route and see if I get any bites. If not, then shipping becomes the next option. I'm guessing that this combo weighs about 150-200lbs and I know nothing of shipping freight, so any tips would help. The good news is that the saw does come apart extremely easily for any type of transportation.


Thanks again - your offers are very moving.

-RL

Calling All Locals...


The next Colorado 'old tool' gathering is upon us! It is slated for next weekend (Saturday, May 19) and should be a blast! I hosted the last one - this time it will be at another member's place.

You can read more about it here:

http://owwm.org/viewtopic.php?f=29&t=115188

If you are interested in attending, I'll put you in contact with the head honcho.

Thanks!

Hey, checkout uship.com
Drivers bid on picking-up your item if they have other freight in the same direction.
The longer and longer you wait and turn-down bids for being too expensive... the cheaper the freight bids get.
From Denver, you should be sitting pretty on easy access.. you may get as low as $100, but realistically at $130.
I received a quote to ship a pallet from chicago for $90 @700 lbs.

RL, check out my latest garage sale find! Look at my garage thread (below) and you'll see it. I'll give you a little clue below. But being the craftsman guy, you know it's a craftsman anyway.

Sorry I've been kinda out of the loop. I've been rather busy with the kiddo / job complications, etc. Working on catching up with the thread. =)

The saw/jointer is drool worthy. It's eye candy already - can't wait to make some sawdust.

Well, I still have a long ways to go on the garage, so it will definitely come in useful for building all my cabinets, etc. Then I've got other little projects and crafty things to do around the house, and a shed, and a fence....lots of opportunities.

Excellent. Sounds like it has a good road ahead of it!

Freight shipping is pretty cheap if you can make a crate for it or strap it down to a pallet and get it to the shipping company's dock. I recently shipped a 500-pound engine from Los Angeles to Spokane, which is over 1200 miles. It was only $159 to ship.

The broker I used was www.freight88.com

Another option for shipping heavy, relatively small things, is Greyhound. They put the item under the bus, in the cargo area, and you just pick it up at the local bus station. My dad used to have heavy things for work shipped to him this way all the time.

Well, no real huge updates for the weekend (yet!).

I spent today running around with the wife and son which was pretty fun, then repairing the exhaust on the Honda and changing its oil, as well as the Kawasaki's oil.

Thank the Lord I decided to do a late night cleaning of the garage on Thursday night. I had no idea I'd need the space so urgently! The Honda's exhaust pipe split in two and was dragging on the ground Friday afternoon. Was going to weld it, but didn't want to torch holes in it (haven't welded since I was about 12 haha) so I just used a metal coupler. It is not that permanent, but I feel it may actually be more long-wearing than a weld repair since it broke at a weld joint and I could see it happening again.

4runner's oil should get changed tomorrow, but not before we celebrate the wife/mommy

That's all for now! I'm hoping when I get some time (whenever the heck that will be), I'll rig up the routing jig to surface the workbench top. I need to keep moving on that project!

While I promise to have a real update later this evening, I thought I would entertain with some cool things I've seen recently.



Want to finish your shop with something super cool and unique but don't have a lot of money? Try OSB! I was recently at an Illegal Pete's in Denver and they had one of the coolest ideas I had seen in a long time - they sandwiched about 8 pieces of 3/4" OBS together and sanded the whole thing perfectly smooth, then finished with an amber/clear poly coat. The result was absolutely stunning. When I first saw it I thought it was all made from crazy pieces of spalted maple, until I was looking at it from about 6 inches away

Here are some non-closeups of the interior:




If I ever go there again I'll try and take some close up shots - it was really amazing looking.


I'm guessing that it is probably a higher quality OSB - most of the strands were going the same way, but there were pieces here any there under the finish that were going off in random directions, which led me to believe that it was OSB. I could always be wrong but I couldn't think of anything else it could be.

If I need to do more finish work in the garage, I am totally trying out finished OSB!


Also, completely random and having nothing to do with my thread, I caught a glimpse of this and thought it was just too cool not to post up here in the thread. A Morgan three wheeler:

Those pieces of wood are called parallam beams - essentially what you described, but minus the labor of fixing all of the osb together. You can order them in almost any size from your lumberyard. Depending on how you cut and sand it, they can take on some very cool looks.

Alright guys! I'm one step closer to getting the workbench finished!

I made all the components for the router-flattening table trick. Thanks to mdback1for suggesting it and shoottx for posting some articles about it. I had stumble across the technique some time ago but had completely forgotten about it until ya'll said something Thanks for having my back!

Here is the router sled:



I don't have a super wide bit and it isn't carbide, but it will do. Since its free because I already have it I made the sled out of slat board scrap I had around. The board had a bit of curve to it. That got taken care of with the oak side pieces (also scrap), but even those weren't fully flat, so then I used this:



To take care of that! Thanks Steven Biars for letting me use your jointer


I'm going to use these:



...to screw up underneath the bench top to act as supports for the rails. They will be shimmed as necessary.

Here are the rails:



If I was made of money I'd go out and get MDF or something better than what I'm using and reinforce it and go the whole 9 yards, but I feel pretty good about being able to do this and not spending any extra money. It won't be dead perfect but it will get me close and be a LOT better than the bench currently is.

Hopefully I'll have a chance to do it sometime this weekend, but with the big tool get-together on Saturday, the wifey is already being really generous by watching the little guy for all that time. We'll see what happens. Man, I'm anxious to finish this thing!

As soon as I start routing, expect lots more pictures!

Thanks! It is my favorite, humble disaster


In garage news - the radial saw (Craftsman, 1952) has been moved out of the garage, the 1960 Craftsman RAS and metal cart have been given away, the Homecraft scroll saw has been sold, as have the Craftsman jointer and Atlas cabinet saw. I look forward to the extra room I'll be getting and re-organizing soon!

My first step to be able to do the epoxy floor this summer is slowing shaping up and the first step is being completed!
