Overflow: Inca 10″ Jointer/Planer Combination Machine for Sale

Unlike other Overflow items, I am not giving away this one for free.  I am asking $700.  December 16 update: the Jointer/Planer is now sold. Several years ago, I bought a 10" jointer/planer combination machine, which was made in Switzerland by Inca. Since I already had an 8" long-bed jointer and 13" thickness planer, I never … Continue reading Overflow: Inca 10″ Jointer/Planer Combination Machine for Sale

The Sander Sitter is essentially a round crepe pad in a tray, mounted on bearings.  The idea is that you set your random orbit sander down in the tray while it is running or spinning down and the crepe cleans the abrasive disc. I no longer own a 5" sander, so I'm giving it away. … Continue reading Overflow, Part XIV

Overflow, Part XIII

  This is the Veritas Scraping Plane Insert, installed in my favourite bench plane.  I bought it years ago to use in my #4 bench plane and used it a few times, but over time I found it simpler and easier to use a cabinet scraper or card scraper.  I haven't used the insert in … Continue reading Overflow, Part XIII

Overflow, Part XII

What is Overflow? A year-and-a-half ago, I started my Overflow program to give away woodworking stuff I no longer used to followers of my blog.  It was going strong for a while and I gave away a lot of good stuff including a: Ridgid Air Filter; Veritas Scraper Holder; Makita 1/3 Sheet Sander; Lee Valley Dovetail … Continue reading Overflow is Back, Again!

Overflow, Part XI

Router bit sets with 30 assorted bits seem like a great deal and an affordable way to start your collection.  I'm sure that I'm not the only one who bought one of these sets.  They are good value if you look at the cost per bit.  However, the sets often come with moulding profile bits … Continue reading Overflow, Part XI

Overflow, Part X

Years ago, I bought this Veritas Scraper Holder.  Soon after, I realized that I preferred to hold the scraper in my hands which, I felt, allowed increased sensitivity. Since I never use it, I am giving it away!  It's in perfect condition but a little dusty from being in the shop.  (I'm keeping the scraper … Continue reading Overflow, Part X
