Ok, so I have to know where I’m starting out from and what I have so I did a little inventory last night. Below is the items I have in the garage. Wow . . . that’s a lot of stuff. I’m thinking some items might just need a re-do to gain functionality. I have one item that is on spindly 2×2 legs, but I might be able to add some addition boards/bracing and put it on wheels for a rolling work table. My next course of action will be to plug all this into Sketchup and re...
Starting a new old arn project like I need another hole in my head. Craftsman – King Seeley 12” bandsaw, model# 103.24280, circa 1950s. Dirty but not much rust. I have removed the upper assembly to start the cleanup. I’ll post more as I go along. You can see some nice examples of refurbs of this model on OWWM.
Susan G. Komen 3-Day Walk for the Cure: Items to Build for Fundraiser #5: Soap dishes... do I hear soap dishes?!
The next items I will begin building for the fundraising auction will be soap dishes. Jordan and his wife have generously donated some of the their soaps for the cause. Thanks Jordan! So, I will be pairing up some of the soap with its own soap dish. Some of the other soaps will be sold as standalone items, with those proceeds adding to the bottom line of the fundraiser. During a visit to the lumber supply store a while back, I found some red oak trim in the scrap bin. Not knowing wha...
Hello All, I always feel badly when I post in here, if my blog isn’t about woodworking. Tonight it is! The last week has been almost entirely about getting the Kindle book ready, but now that I am back home, I made it down into the shop. Another half blind dovetail cut and I feel good about it. I also have a guess the photo contest. No prize though, but it might still be fun. It might not be fun…I don’t know…it is the sort of thing I enjoy though. http://su...
I am wondering do my DeWalt RAS roller bearings need adjusting? Because my RAS wont’s to roll on it’s own to the front of the saw, I am not using it till I figure how to fix that.
Progress in the shop is hectic due to outside commitments to family and friends, but, nonetheless, it is coming along. The 10% off Grizzly, 15% off Woodcraft, and 10% off Carbide Processors sales happened to match up with my parents visiting, Sunday fishing trips with friends, anniversary, plus taking care of the kids. Accomplished: - Spackled and painted garage walls and ceiling.- Assembled tablesaw: assembled mobile base, rewired to 110v and outlet to NEMA 5-20, degreased, lubricated, te...
It’s been a couple weeks but I have been working feverishly to get this beauty back in a form that would make the designer proud. I got everything painted, de-rusted and generally cleaned up. I got the cutter head bearings replaced, the bushings on the infeed and outfeed rollers were thankfully serviceable. I say thankfully because the cheapest machine shop wanted 1 hour plus material each. This equates to $70 per bushing x 4, yikes. To replace the MDF top that was on it, and had sank 4...
Hi, getting ready for our local The Woodworking Show is Somerset, NJ in February. Our club, the New Jersey Woodturners donate our time to make wooden spinning tops for the Childrens Specialized Hospital of New Jersey. Please stop by our booth and check it out.
Well, the wall hasn’t gone up yet – the start got postponed a day or so. And I had time to start ripping down the yellow pine 2×12s This proved interesting, so I thought I would post a short snippet about that. I ran into a frustrating problem so I will probably post this on the forum as well. My plan is to build a big heavy Holtzapffel bench a la Chris Schwartz et al. Supposedly, yellow pine is a good candidate, strong, heavy and relatively cheap. I’ve never us...
