As The Lathe Turns #16: Gluing Up Bowl Blanks, And Some More Of My Ramblings

03-16-2013 03:08 AM by William | 4 comments »

First thing today, I wanted to show the thread adapter and live center that someone sent to me. These come from Penn State Industries. The reason I wanted these was that the Ridgid lathe has #1 morse taper, while my larger lathe has #2. On the headstock spindle, the Ridgid has 3/4”x16 threads, while my larger lathe, and most of my accessories, have 1”x8 thread. Someone had these shipped to me. Whoever it was apparantly did not wish for me to know who, but I do thank you, whoever y...

My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #16: New Product Line! *Scroll Saw Puzzles*

04-10-2014 06:15 PM by Ethan Harris | 4 comments »

Hello All, Just found some time to send an update to Lumber Jocks. Spud Woodworks is growing once more, this time I have launched a new product line! I acquired a NEW in the box 1995 Delta Scroll Saw on Ebay… That’s right, I couldn’t believe it when I came across it! And it is beautiful and works amazingly. Anyhow, I decided to start making wood puzzles and I designed my first set of them to begin selling. I also added some walnut and maple blocks to my wooden blocks p...

What not to do with a disk sander.

03-09-2007 10:44 PM by DaveC | 4 comments »

I learned a valuable lesson on using the disk sander last night: Don’t poke your thumb into it! I was thinning the edges of some leather to use on the handle section of my bow and must have got too close. (Well duhhh!) I guess I’ll have to re think how I perform that operation now wont I. I won’t gore you with the details. It will be fine but It will be sore for a while. Lesson learned!

Constructing "Old 99" #16: Trimmin' the wheels

09-08-2008 12:37 PM by MrWoody | 4 comments »

This morning I cut and drilled the wheel trim pieces. Looking at the 3/8” square cuts I thought that I would try not using the scroll saw. So I dug out my 3/8” hollow mortising chisel and took the auger out. Using a soft blow mallet I tried chopping out the squares. It didn’t work. There was a lot of tear out on the back side. Four more photocopies, more drilling and on to the scroll saw. I used diagonal cutters to shorten the 5/32” axle pins to a little over 1/8”. ...

Shop Storage Solutions #2: Why I Need Storage & the Materials to Fix the Problem

08-14-2009 06:10 AM by HokieMojo | 4 comments »

In the previous edition, I stated that I wanted to build a lumber/sheetgood/clamp rack. Here is all the lumber I need it to hold: In this last photo, you can’t see that the lumber goes about 10 boards deep. Here is my current lumber rack, which as you can see is pretty full. I do love it, but I don’t have enough wall space to add another. Here is the clamp rack that I want to replace. I was about 1/4 way into the project when I found out I was going to be a...

Look what I got #1: New timber to play with

05-06-2011 11:45 AM by Woodfix | 4 comments »

Huon Pine has an interesting history in Australia. At one time it was used to make the crates for apples to be transported. A native timber of Tasmania (the island bit on the bottom of Australia) it is now highly sought after as a cabinet making timber. Despite this, looking through images on the net I have seen wooden sailing boats made from this timber, recently. My understanding of the current situation is that no trees are allowed to be felled, except in exceptional circumstances. ...

Before After Before After Before After Here is the closet that will house my 2HP HF DC, air compressor, wall mounted shop vac and other stuff as time will dictate. This temporary setup will allow me...

Hand Planes #5: NY TOOL CO PLANE- Oilin' her up

05-25-2012 05:19 PM by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 4 comments »

Well I finally got around to getting some BLO (Boiled Linseed Oil). While I was waiting for the firehouse table stain to dry I grabbed a plastic container and squirted some BLO in it and placed the plane straight up and down. I must say I was highly impressed with how quickly it started to work. You could literally see the oil getting drawn up through the plane. In about 10 minutes it had pulled the oil up about an inch high (out of the 22” length of the plane). Post some more pics tomo...
