my new shop #5: we are getting there

1881 days ago by wooleywoodsmith | 2 comments »

So I know that it has been a while sence I have written about the progress of my new shop. 29 days acording to the date on my last posting. I am still not totally functional yet but I am getting there. Last week I sold a couple of planter boxes and ran as fast as I could to the hardware store to purchace casters for my table saw. I built my saw table with a router station on the out feed side, it is approx 4 X 8 all said and done. Prior to this trip to the hardware store I was running 4 ...

Restoration #1: Antique electrolysis report

1765 days ago by kennethw | 2 comments »

Hi folks! Just a note on the progress of the electrolysis system that I’ve built in order to restore a few of my grandfather’s old tools. I don’t have any pictures to post just yet, but this has been a pretty amazing process. I can’t compare it to any other process, but it has been very interesting to watch the reaction as it does its magic. It seemed to be the least damaging and toxic/caustic way to go about bringing these tools back into usable condition. In parti...

A journey into the workshop. #52: Projects at a standstill. New shop items on order, by order of SWMBO...

1572 days ago by dbhost | 2 comments »

So Friday night, after dinner and helping with cleanup, I am doing some work in the shop. I’ve got the planer put up, and was doing some “put that away or I will never find it again” cleaning when SWMBO strolled out into the shop, and announced that I MUST clean this mess up. It would appear that to her, the ability to find the floor is important… Now I stood back and analyzed the situation… I could have argued with her, but those of you that are married know ...

1384 days ago by sawblade1 | 2 comments »

Good Evening LJ’s Last week I blogged about spinning my wheels and how I was going back to my original plan, Well ? Not much happened the first few days but Thursday my phone rang and I was asked if I did strip and refinish wood ? After telling him no I realized someone actually found me :) as a business anyway :)Standing tongue in cheek I wonder where would I be if I actually stuck to the plan? Probably not riding home at 1:30am, not working hard or whining about my Job, and definably ...

Light at the end of the tunnel

1337 days ago by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Yes, there’s light at the end of the tunnel and it’s not a freight train. I was able to make really good progress on the router table/outfeed extension today. Here’s how it looks so far; I appologize for the quality of the picture, I had to use my phone. By adding this I now have 21” more width and an additional 9” of outfeed. You can see the rough cut out where the router will go. Having reached this point I can now start planning for the cabinet tha...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #3: The legs are milled to rough sizes

1312 days ago by therookie | 2 comments »

Well after about 20 minutes of looking at the 6/4 cherry board for my legs on the two tables. I figured out how to mill the board into 11 legs. Some of the legs had knots in them and enden up breaking. But I still ended up with 9 good legs out of a board with two knots in them and a 2 foot section of rot in the middle. Again the board was 1 3/16” x 5 1/2” x 122 1/2” and I ended up with (9) 3 foot legs. So all in all not a bad day of after school work. Tomorrow I will be mill...

Steel City Dust Collector Conversion

1222 days ago by GregD | 2 comments »

I installed a Wynn Environmental 35A Series Cartridge Kit my Steel City Model 65200 dust collector. It wasn’t too difficult. With this kit the cartridge is usually held in place by turnbuckles that attach between the (inside) opening in the separator cone and (inside) opening of the cartridge flange. Unfortunately, with this DC the turnbuckles would need to be shorter than the rather small turnbuckles supplied in the kit – less than 3”. I had some 1/2” aluminum c...
