Homemade Band Clamp

11-25-2013 01:48 PM by Alask | 3 comments »

Hello fellows, Recentely I need to glue some parts of wood too long for my pipe clamps. I decide to use a ratcheted band to do the job for me.At that time I forgot to make pictures,so I illustrate it at the pictures below.It works very well and the force applied is very big. Understand the idea: The eye-bolt The hook tends to pull off the piece To anulate the pull force you need to clamp it.Here angle bar to keep the jaw in place. Assembled Clamped in place (only...

A Beginner's Thoughts #2: Leaning back...

09-25-2010 04:59 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 3 comments »

it’s been a while since I’ve been here but a lot has happened. After all my thought process and decisions to go ‘power’, I’m now leaning back towards just hand tools. I got the 15” planer I was looking into and have used it a few times, along with the 6” Jointer and TS. Man those things create a lot of wood chips and dust! Which is one of the reasons I’m leaning back. I don’t have a dust collection system and don’t really want o...

Beetle Beaver Bed #2: More lumber!!

These were from our mining claim and also from a tree that blocked the road when hunting late october. The hunt tree I will make into a desk and the top for my dining table with the 2 saws inlayed into it. I also cut the rest of the beaver cottonwood and it is drying along with the beetle kill. The cottonwood has neat grain...

Piano Reconstruction... (Cont..)

01-20-2012 04:24 PM by jeth | 3 comments »

Ok, with the panels laid up I got the edges planed to trim to final dimensions then, i have to admit, for fear of tearout I sanded rather than smoothing the faces with a hand plane. Here shooting the edging strip that covers the top end of the lamination, the idea was to bring this down to about 1/16” so that it would coincide more or less with the round over on the edges and become near invisible.. Now to get the other bits done.. Keyboard supports....
