Homemade Bandsaw Blade Tension Quick-Release

2389 days ago by Blake | 37 comments »

Grab some popcorn… I made a movie!(Make sure the volume is up… it might be a little quiet) Story:I have been working really hard to tune up my bandsaw lately. I really wanted one of these:...for tensioning and detensioning the blade. But I am at the end of my budget and can’t spend another $150. I had seen pictures of a homemade version in a magazine and decided to make my own. I posted this to try to get ideas. Anyway, this is what I came up with and it works gre...

Chop Saw Dust Hood #4: Plumbing To Connect The Chop Saw's Dust Port

1708 days ago by BlankMan | 4 comments »

Well I got sidetracked restoring the Jet sander but did spend time on this while working on that in between waiting for parts. I cut out the circle for the saw swivel clearance like six times. There was really no good way to measure it and get it right the first time because like I said with the blade guard, handle, and motor, the cutout is closer to half a teardrop then a circle. So I’d put the hood in place, put the saw in place, and see where it bound or was too close and cut it bigg...

Toot, Toot, Tootorial #2: How to make a whistle on a lathe

1564 days ago by Mary Anne | 27 comments »

TOOT TOOT TOOTORIAL TWO This time, we’re going to turn a whistle on a lathe. I will be including some beginner level information since a few of the people who showed an interest in this project are novices. Besides, I think it is a great beginner project; it requires no parts or kits, just a chunk of wood, your lathe, your tools, and you. Please use all safety precautions you have available! I can’t think of any good stories to start with this time, so let’s get right toot it. Th...

Grizzly G0555 -new dust port #2: Grizzly G0555 Dust Port- Revised Design

1170 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 7 comments »

I must admit my first attempt at a acceptable dust port for my Grizzly G0555 failed. It still left opening for dust to escape and I trashed it. I had to cut a lot of particle board in circles and thoroughly dusted the shop. That stopped me after that project and I wanted to collect the dust RIGHT OFF THE BLADE before it got to the lower port on the saw and everywhere else. So the following is what I came up with and it worked well after feeding 4 feet of particle board through it for a test....

Lincoln Log Jig

1394 days ago by mikeho | 6 comments »

I have had quite a few requests on how the lincoln log jig works, I will give it a shot at explaining it.First I rip the logs to 23/32 square and then take them to the router table and using a roundover bitround the edges. Next set the jig stops to the far left setting (right hole in jig) and cut the short and long logs to length. Next move the stops to the right setting (left hole in the jig) and cut the dados setting the 3/4 in dado blade to 1/8 above the sled. Next I take a few of ...

Shop Made Dowels The Easy Way & Two Useful Ways to Use Them

1625 days ago by stefang | 37 comments »

Why make dowels when you can buy them cheap? Well, you can’t buy dowels in every kind of wood. Also you might be working on a project and you don’t want to take the time to go to the store to get them, or maybe you like to be self sufficient like me. Dowels made on a lathe or with a router jig take a lot of set-up time. With this method you only have to prepare the stock, do a little carving on each end and in about 30 seconds you have a nice long dowel. If you like that idea a...
