Dwalt planer chatter

11-25-2011 05:05 PM by Kennyp51 | 3 comments »

I have a dewalt 12.5” planer that I love but, I changed blades recenly and now I have a bad chatter when I try to run a board through it. I checked the blades and one of them was out by a 1/16” so I got them both at exactly the same but it still chatters. Any ideas?

Shop Improvements #5: Band Saw Fence Finished

12-12-2011 01:41 AM by wolflrv | 3 comments »

In the previous post I had a pic of the glue up for my little bandsaw fence. I finished it today and thought I’d post a couple of pics. The bandsaw is old, but I got it for $10 at a garage sale and all it needed was a new blade. The switch is dead, but the variable speed still works. I just flip it on and off via a power strip switch. It works for now! It’s a very simple design, but works very well. The wood plate on the back is loose, so it kind of floats into plac...

Rushing through the home repairs. #4: When door stops don't...

03-07-2012 07:47 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

So last night was spent running around with new door stops, and drywall mud making sure the door knobs keep from smashing into sheet rock, and repairing the damage that was caused when they did. You know, if I was going for a stucco look, I’d be done texturing! But I digress.. I got to spend a little bit of time painting some samples of paint on the laundry room walls, and remembered a couple of stupid things… #1. Even light colors can bleed through paint and skew your color...

Chest of Drawers #1: Carcase Construction is Quick!

03-31-2012 06:45 PM by JaLatham | 3 comments »

Last year when my wife and I learned we were going to have our second child, natuarlly we were thrilled. Then, it dawned on me that this was also a perfect opportunity to start work on a chest of drawers for the boy to be. Well, I decided that before I built that chest, I should build a chest for my tools before spring came with the rains and the humidity got to my tools that were more or less in the open in my garage. Definitely glad I did that. Anyway, now to my sons chest. I actually start...

Nail Gun Cabinet Project #3: Finally........

06-15-2012 10:22 AM by Gshepherd | 3 comments »

Well I finally got the finishing touches done and here is the final result. A blissfull moment here… Took my measurments for the rails on the face frame they were all cut the same and they fit perfect. This pic shows the before they were glued and a few 23ga brads. Sanding before assembly sure makes life easier. This pic shows the crown moulding installed with built up bracing that will give it the strength needed. Several screw were put on the backside of the crown. All Piece...

Planed juniper cut offs #1: Attn. Box makers or small board projects????

08-28-2012 02:51 PM by junipercanyon | 3 comments »

I will have quite a bit of cut off scraps from some nice juniper lumber. It has been dry for about 14yrs. They are planed to about 5/8” thick, and will be anywhere from 6” to 20” long. I was thinking about bundling up packages of and selling them to interested lumberjocks. If interested, please send me a message with ANY reasonable offer that would be worth taking the time to package and ship these out to you. I just cant bring myself to throw the scraps away knowing they co...

Waiting for my sander...

07-01-2013 03:31 PM by wncguy | 3 comments »

I really liked my Ridgid 4424 oscillating sander for the boxes I was making. Then problem – motor burned out & since it was under warranty took to authorized service center about 40 miles away…. motor was on back order then the replacement finally came in & it was no good too. So still waiting over 3 months. Okay enough P & Ming. Just got a call, should be ready on Wednesday. So good news is that I had time to gain additional experience with the band saw & I fe...

Fresh Start #1: Beginning with a Bench

09-21-2013 10:36 PM by Ed_Wilcox | 3 comments »

Now that I am finally settled in to our new home near Fort Hood, Texas, the wife has allotted me a small portion of the garage to be used as my workshop. Thanks to my latest birth/anniversary day, I have also added several new tools to help the beginning process. The table saw will still have to wait. Instead I have a new circular saw, a router, orbital sander, and a few other gizmos to accessorize. Anyway, the first project I intend to get started on will be making a few clamps to assist ...

And oh what a fantastic...
