Dewalt RAS Restoration #3: Motor and Motor Carriage

04-27-2011 04:19 PM by milbert | 3 comments »

Continuing to work up the saw I got the next big chunk of work done, the motor and the motor carriage. I followed pretty much the same process I used while doing the base. Like I said before, this saw is in great working shape and had been used daily by the gentleman that had it before. I both the motor bearings and track bearings had already been replaced. They were in good shape so all I needed to do was give them a thorough cleaning. I also hand painted the embossed DeWalt logo ‘k...

Christmas 2011 Just Got Better!!!

01-08-2012 07:06 PM by matt garcia | 3 comments »

As you know, I work for an incredible boss!! This year, with my Christmas bonus, I purchased a Bench Dog Cast Iron router table extension for my table saw. I was so stoked when I read on Rockler’s website that it fit their Router Lift FX. Little did I know that they changed the plate dimension, and my current model was too small. So I had to wait until payday to get a new one. A few days passed, and there I was at the Rockler counter, when their associate offered me a 20% discount!...

Table Saw update, and some other things

02-26-2012 12:22 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 3 comments »

One thing I enjoy about woodworking is the “walk away” nature of it. If you are stumped on a project, or just don’t feel like dealing with a certain task you can walk away and come back to it later. For a long while I was having trouble figuring out the best way to glue up the base cabinet that would sit under my sawstop contractor saw. also had the fear of screwing it up and having to start it over, being overwhelmed by these things I set the project aside for a while. A...

SketchUp and Plugins for woodworkers #1: Comp2LayerScene

09-14-2012 11:35 PM by ktkoh | 3 comments »

I have written and released a sketchup plugin that helps organize your drawing components into separate layers and creates a scene that is meant to be used as a 2D dimensional drawing that can be printed. Note that this only works on Components not on groups. This should not be a problem as I think all the experts suggest that each part should be a component because of all the advandages they add. Currently this plugin is available in the plugin forum You will need to regester to be able to...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #2: Cleaning out the ruin

05-06-2013 07:42 AM by Serradura | 3 comments »

After the dust was gone we could see what we bought. It’s strange to realize that just a decade ago, somebody lived in this building. No water, no toilet, no electricity. It must have been a simple and poor life for the old lady that spend her last years in this, what used to be the main house of a farm. As a woodworker, tears get in to your eyes, seeing that the former owner didn’t clean out the property before putting it down. The big stone wall went half thru the flo...

Facts VS. My Imagination

03-20-2007 01:08 AM by Paul | 3 comments »

This didn’t quite fit any of the forum topics. Perhpas the coffee shop, but I decided to just blog it. Another “I’m curious” question. Does anybody own, or have a friend that does own, any of the various portable band saw lumber mills that are available? As you know there’s everything from an attachment for your large chainsaw to a mill that you can pull behind a pick-up truck with hydrolic log lifters etc. I’ve looked at pamplets and brochures of ...

Starting again

09-09-2007 01:06 AM by Dale Robinson | 3 comments »

It seems like I have been getting my shop ready forever. I’ve completed a few minor projects and started a few that are not finished. I started with the ntention of building guitars (and still intend to) but i have been more and more interested in building decorative boxes and clocks. You can’t work on the shop forever. I do need to run some new electrical circuits and eleminate some extension cords.DaleR So in trying to fix my earlier mistake and starting my blog entries again, I wanted t...
