shop speakers - 27 replies
I have a friend that’s heavy into audio and I was telling him my old shop speakers (pioneer hpm 100’s) were in sad state of repair. He told me with all my ww experience, I’m crazy not to build my own. After looking through all the different designs and the prices to build them I decided to go with the “http://speakerdesi...

mini cyclones - 3 replies
My shop usually stays pretty clean. I have a pretty good dust collection system that captures the dust at the machines. I need to do something about the dust that’s created by hand sanders and hand held routers. I just built a set of tall speakers out of MDF and if anyone has ever worked with MDF knows the amount of dust you can produce. ...

chalkboard gloat? - 3 replies
Before I started the remodeling of my shop I had a small 2’x3’ chalkboard in my shop, and I like drawing projects out as I create them. Now I acquired one that came out of a school, and this thing is massive.

first time this has happened - 18 replies
while cutting some birch ply in the shop for my new shop cabinets, I cut into a very thick disposable knife blade that was embedded into the ply between the veneer layers. I cant believe I didn’t put a nick into my 3/4” CMT ply bit, or notice it when I cut through it on the tablesaw.

cyclone or bag...hmmmm - 2 replies
I’m getting ready to upgrade my dust collection system (Bill Pentz design) and I would like to go with a cyclone but the one thing I don’t like about cyclones is the little metal garbage can. Has anyone ever come up with an alternate method for a larger bin other than the small garbage can? I also have a widebelt sander and I’...

need help with veneering - 5 replies
I’m building a set of hickory cabinets, the cases are white melamine and normally I build side panels for the end cabinets but I would like to try some veneering. Anyone ever veneer to melamine? I’m guessing you would have to scratch up the surface with some sandpaper so the glue would have something to hold to. What type of gl...

At the end of the day while blowing the wood chips off my old delta shaper I thought it would be neat to search the net for a owners manual or to see if I can still get parts for it ( for future reference). I searched high and low and could not find any info except for the serial #. Any help on this matter would be greatly appreciative.
