Shop Talk Live 60: Dumpster Diving for Terrific Tools
This week on Shop Talk Live, Mike Pekovich and Ed Pirnik confess to getting just a bit too close to their local dumps. Tablesaws, air compressors, and more--can you really find great tools amid piles of rotten food and rusty metal?
Plus, we answer questions on a variety of woodworking topics including workbenches, tablesaw adjustments, block plane iron sharpening, and a whole lot more.
Has this ever happened to you?
Has good fortune ever smiled upon you while strolling past a dumpster? Ever find a cool tool cast aside by an unworthy owner, only to be rescued by you? Chime in the comments section below. We want to know about it!
Every two weeks, a team of Fine Woodworking staffers answer questions from readers on Shop Talk Live, Fine Woodworking's biweekly podcast. Send your woodworking questions to firstname.lastname@example.org for consideration in the regular broadcast!
