ScrollSaw Information and Resources #62: Where to fine the old, olde scrollsaw patterns

144 days ago by jerrells | 1 comment »

As I have been involved in scrolling for about four year plus my interest has become the older, more detailed, intricate patterns. Like the ones produced, to my knowledge, around the turn of the century. Some of my present and a lot of my new projects will focus on these types of patterns. I have done some extensive research as to where to find these types of patterns. Yes I am well aware the several web sites have some of what I am talking about. However paying $15 for a single pattern vs...

ZCI for vintage Craftsman 113.298341 #1: Time to replace the first go at it.

1068 days ago by rweitz | 2 comments »

I have an old Craftsman with a funky insert. It’s aluminum ( I used to think steel) about 3/32” thick and “D” shaped. I have not found any one anywhere that makes a compatible insert that I can buy. The lip on the insert is so thin that conventional insert instructions just won’t hack it. I took some acrylic and made an attempt at a ZCI: and it worked for a while but was a bear to make. The acrylic is starting to crack and I’ve hacked away some of the...

what is 360 divided by 10, anyone, anyone...

411 days ago by Mark Shymanski | 9 comments »

If you don’t remember the teacher from ‘Ferris Beuhler’s Day Off’ the title is not at all funny, it’s barely funny if you do remember the movie:-) Anyway, I got a chance to work on the birdsmouth joints Paul ( Shipwright) recommended for making my hollow mast prototype. Once I’d fabricated a zero clearance dado blade insert I did a couple of test cuts and then ran my 10 boards through for my trial glue up.I had cut a pronounced taper on the boards figuri...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #5: Ceiling Mount Completed. Blade Shroud Almost.

487 days ago by djg | 0 comments »

The ceiling mount is now completed with the exception of some tightening knobs. I screwed a few pieces of 2×4 across the ceiling joists since there was nothing above the directly above the table saw to attach the mount. I painted it white so it would blend in a little better with the shop. You can see that the mount is offset to the left of the blade but there is a horizontal L-Bracket that can be used to shift the shroud left or right over the blade. I had to use a couple of guide ...

Roubo #8: It's Done!

494 days ago by bondogaposis | 13 comments »

This is the grand finale. Here I’m doing the final leveling of the top. It was a ton of hand planing and sanding. It’s not perfect but not too bad either. I only sanded to 100 grit, I don’t want a slick surface. Now onto applying finish. I used a simple mixture of 1/3 MS, 1/3 BLO and 1/3 spar varnish. Next up is to apply suede to the vise chop and wagon vise and dogs. I used contact cement. That was the last step and here is the final product. ...

BELSAW 905 PLANER

537 days ago by povertyridge | 21 comments »

Ok Ladies and gents….. This is my latest find. I picked this up from an old fella in Kentucky about a week and a half ago. Its a 2hp 220v, 12” model. For starters, it runs great, looks a little rough,(but beauty is only skin deep) is heavy metal and best part of all…. I can’t find ANY information on this machine with the exception of a 2 page description from the 40’s (i’m guessing) on Belsaw’s web site. I gave them a call because I was hoping that...

Riving knife retrofit for unisaw #1: Riving Knife retrofit for Unisaw

545 days ago by runswithscissors | 30 comments »

Like a lot of people, I wanted a true riving knife for my older Unisaw. I checked out the Bolt On Riving Knife (BORK) and realized it doesn’t maintain a uniform height relative to the blade, because it follows a bigger arc than the blade, being even farther out from the axis of the swing arm. Also, frankly, the means of attachment to the arbor doesn’t look very robust to me. I find this analogy useful for picturing the functioning of a true riving knife. Compare it to your arm. Your should...

Disposable KerfMaker

1164 days ago by rance | 31 comments »

Well, yes, the Kerf Maker is a very clever jig. I have a different take on its manufacture. I see a reason to have several, NO, Wait… Why not make them DISPOSABLE? :) I had a need to use one today so why not make one. Here it is:  I used a stick of about 1/2” square pine. Yeah, Pine(or is that Poplar?). And some double sided tape. Cut the stick in half. (I’m kinda protective of my tape. Can ya tell?)  Then stick both halves together with the tape. &n...
