« Part 11: My version of the thein chip collector Part 12 of Getting my tools ready series Part 13: What is the difference between the delta model 40-650 and the model 40-650 type 2? »

Not a whole lot to show for progrees since the last posting, but I have two functional chores completed toward my goal.

When I constructed my Thein chip separator I had a difficult time, and therefore extended time in cutting the plywood circles. Used my Makita Saber Saw, and then figured out/tuned up my Band Saw with help from some knowledgeable Lumberjocks. My thanks ( again!) for the guidance.

Realized I could cur faster with a circle cutter, and used my sheet metal circle cutter. As I mentioned I cut one hole which dulled the bit. Resorted back to my saber saw.

Marc Adams of the Marc Adams Woodworking School did a two day workshop for the MN Woodworkers Guild. I purchased his set of instructional DVD’s and learned a bunch. Remembered the Router DVD. It has Router Jigs. Replayed it, took some notes, and bought some 1/4 inch acrylic from my local window repair guy.

The jig is et up with 1/2 inch increments starting FROM A 4” RADIUS THROUGH A 16” RADIUS.

Used my drill press, band saw, and stationary sander. This slow poke took a day with careful attention so I didn’t have to cut and drill a second time. LOL!

I had mentioned that I have yet to put wheels on the chip separator. That actually went well. Used one fixed wheel and two multidirectional wheels with locks.

I had originally build a garden shed for my snow blowers, lawn mowers, and I had intended to put the dust collector in the building which is about 4 ft from my shop. Realized my Delta is only 1200 cfm, and I had purchase flex 4” with blast gates. This was before I knew how much dust collectors really need to suck.

Went with my original plan and put it in the Garden Shed. I’m in the process of figuring out the connection between the two buildings.

sorry about the last picture. Rotated in Picassa but it is stored in windows files as it was taken. Tilt your head PLEASE!

great little circle cutting jig. I’ve been meaning to build on for myself one of these days, instead of using a piece of scrap attached to the router and drilling a hole in it. This looks much quicker in the long run, and far more accurate.

You’ve got a big barrel that can hold a lot of wood chips and with every post you are getting closer to starting to fill it up. I look forward to your next post.

Peter,

Now has wheels! LOL! I think Marc Adams was pretty clever here. :>)

Probably can make one for my smaller router? (Trim router)

Grizz,

Oh Dah! Other than my collector I do have a situation that sucks! have to replace the rotten framing in my second story window of my old Victorian house. Thought I would just have to scrape and paint. (will try to do all work from inside vs. up on a two story ladder, as I don’t bounce so well these days.)

Maybe you have a Watsons Crick in your neck?

Thanks for checkin in.

Crick and Watson may refer to:
Francis Crick and James D. Watson , the two scientists who discovered the structure of DNA in 1953

That’s my kind of project Thomas, I like it. For those like me who have difficulty tilting their head here is that last shot again.

You are making a lot of good progress and it all seems to be well done.
