I have an RBI Sander molder with a variety of cutters, rolls of sandpaper, etc., a raised panel stick and cope machine, and a multi head drill press used for making 5mm shelf support holes with a sliding table. I have recently divorced, that’s why I’m selling.I live here in Lees Summit and would happy to show them to any of your members.The two RBI machines were over $10,000 new and I hope to get $4000 for the pair. The drilling machine has all new bits in it and I will sell that for $1600.

Hitachi M12V 3.25 HP Plunge Router with Router Raizer with CMT Table and Fence on a custom made stand with doors on the bottom and drawer in the middle to store your accessories and router bits. The middle drawer is missing the drawer front, but can be easily added. The Router Raizer allows you to move the router up and down from the top of the table. The stand has leveling feet to help ensure a level foundation. The table also comes with the CMT Pocket Pro Jig for creating pocket holes from 1/2 inch to 1 1/2 inch wood.
Works great, just do not need it anymore. Looking for $400

The April 2013 Guild meeting was well attended. Thanks to the 100 or so members who have paid their annual dues and are now in good standing. Again this month, we had outstanding participation in the “Show and Tell” portion of our agenda. Box making aficionado, Jim McCord, won the drawing for those who participate in Show and Tell. Jim regularly displays his beautifully designed and constructed wooden boxes and this month was no exception. Several members have taken Jim up on his invitation to visit his shop for demonstrations of his box making techniques. Thanks Jim for your good humor and willingness to share!

At the April meeting the subject of wood toxicity came up. There is a good list of woods and their toxicity in the publication, “ A Guide to Useful Woods of the World” published by the Forest Products Society and The International Wood Collectors Society. But, that list is basically reproduced at this link;
The website, www.wood-database.com is also a very good site to help identify many different woods that we might use.
Annually, the Guild decides what deserving charitable organization (local or otherwise) its restricted funds, collected from the raffle; should be donated. This year it was brought to the Guild’s attention that there is a local need for tools and other instructional supplies in area schools; specifically in the industrial technology programs in the Lee’s Summit School District. Conversely, our Mission Statement which reads to “Promote the exchange of woodworking information and to further the craft” would be a natural fit for us to assist this youthful group of woodworkers just getting started.

If you missed the March Guild meeting you missed a great program on ball bearings presented by Tim Zerger of IBT. Tim is very knowledgeable and has a great deal of field experience. Code word for “field experience” is humans performing badly in public. Tim kept our attention with stories from 30 years of experience on how we should avoid abusing bearing during the installation and about improper maintenance. We can learn a lot from mistakes made by others as well as ourselves. Conversely he passed on a lot of knowledge about how to properly install and take care of these wonders of engineering. We appreciate his willingness to spend the evening with us! Please consider IBT the next time you need to replace the bearing in your equipment. If all the IBT employees are half as knowledgeable and personable as Tim, you can’t go wrong with giving them your business. Continue reading March Meeting Highlights
1) Jet JTAS-10XL1 table-saw with HTC mobile base – 3HP/ 230 Volt (picture attached). It originally had a longer extension table but when I sold the house with the carriage house I shortened the extension, it is now 44″ to the right of the blade, with 36″ usable with the fence. The extension has a router insert which would go with the saw (not the router). Believe I paid somewhat north of $2,000, before adding the base.
2) Jet JWP-.15HO Planer – 3HP/220V. (picture attached). only have 1 set of knives and they have been notched. Believe I paid somewhere around $1,500.
3) Jet DC-1100 Dust collector – 1.5 HP/110V. It is not assembled so not including a picture.
4) A no name name made in China 7″ jointer with mobile base (picture attached)
All the equipment is is good working/used condition. Only am considering selling to avoid having to store it again.

Have you ever wondered about doing woodworking in an atmosphere that embraces workmanship (sorry ladies), fun and camaraderie after your retirement? Look no farther than the group of men and women who spend Monday-Friday working in the Hobby Hut at John Knox Village in Lee’s Summit, Missouri. This lively group of seniors can joke and harass with the best of late night comedians. Consider what you’re about to say before speaking because this witty bunch have minds as sharp as tacks. I’ve had the pleasure of stopping by on occasion to see what’s up with this animated group and I’ve always gone away feeling uplifted and inspired. Continue reading John Knox Village: Woodworkers
