I need help with my bandsaw (suspect bad wheel bearing), a very old Craftsman scroll saw (blade won’t engage) and Delta planer (need to replace knives). Anyone in the Guild willing to help out? My shop is in Fox Point.

I live in Appleton, WI and would like to know if anyone in your group would be interested in any of the magazines I have accumulated over the years. I have Fine Woodworking (issues 1 thru 200 plus duplicates), Fine Homebuilding, Popular Woodworking, Mid-west Tool Collector Assoc. mag, Early American Industries Assoc. mag, Fine Tool Journal, and some miscellaneous. Let me know if you’re interested or you know of someone else who might be. I can drop them off to you if you desire. Thanks
I have a piece of artwork that I need to have a float frame built for, but it’s a little deep for most places to accommodate. Do any of your members live in the Milwaukee metro (I’m in Wauwatosa) and do small jobs? There are plenty of quick DIY tutorials, but I am just not handy enough to do them myself. It’s a 30x30x2 1/4” deep piece (with the anchoring I think the depth would need to be slightly more, from what I can tell). I’d like a 1/4 inch gap, I think. Ultimately I plan for the frame to be gold, so no need to stain it. I’m located in Wauwatosa, Feel free to email me with any questions or interest.
