Quick update

01-25-2008 04:46 PM by DannyBoy | 3 comments »

Kind of a busy day for me today at work but I am sneaking in this one post just to give everyone an update at what I’m currently up to. I just finished last week my Christmas projects. It sounds really late, but we had my half of the family’s Christmas this last weekend so I was just on time. Now that I am past that, I can focus on the laundry list I have created for myself this year already. First in the line: January contest entry. I’m doing a combo entry here. ...

The Purpleheart Guitar collection.

07-17-2008 10:09 PM by Chardt | 3 comments »

This series will hope to outline the work I’ve done building several guitars out of a large stock of Purple heart I got a couple of years ago. It was about the size of a door, and I carefully planned to make 6 guitar bodies out of it. In addition to the Bass, which I posted in the projects section, here is where I currently stand with the various guitars. 1. Telecaster body: I really wanted a vintage 59’ Tele. Blonde with a black pickguard and a filthy maple neck. But I didn...

Modine Hot Dawg Programmable Thermostat?

01-24-2010 10:09 PM by John Gray | 3 comments »

I have a Hot Dawg Heater, HDS 45, installed in my shop and I seem to forget to turn the thermostat down when I leave. Question is, can I install a regular residential set back\programmable thermostat such as found at any BORG? It appears to be a 24V system with 2 wires coming to the thermostat. Thanks, John

Woodworking forums vary a great deal...

02-16-2010 05:28 AM by Wood_smith | 3 comments »

...I’ve only been on this forum for about a week now, and I can’t begin to say thank you for all the welcoming messages, and the kind comments about my pouches. Another forum (that shall remain nameless) that I stumbled across and joined about a week earlier was pretty good, but had some negative comments at first. The forum suggested new members introduce themselves and talk a little bit about what they do. I did that, and some people said it was blatant advertising. I re-checked...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #8: Information on Porter Cable Scrollsaw

03-01-2011 03:40 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

As I posted, about a week ago, I was having problems with the lower clamp holding the blade (like plain end #2) on my Poter Cable Scrollsaw. After some discussion with Poter Cable they are sending me a whole new lower clamp assembly. However it is the same as the one I have and my fear is that it will not address the issue. You see the real problem is that the thumb screw is under the table and you need to reach around the left side to tighten the screw while holding the blade through the hol...

Phil Thien inspired cyclone separator

11-19-2011 05:58 AM by rmoore | 3 comments »

For those who already have one of these, you’ll understand my enthusiasm. For those who don’t, get busy building one. I don’t have a dust collection system, just a 16 gallon shop vac. I’ve been looking at these for months now. I finally got a barrel from work and started building. After cutting the first baffle too small, I got the second one right. I wasn’t expecting it to work as good as it does, but, boy am I happy with the results. When I first turned it o...

An ancient drill press....

03-02-2012 10:11 PM by Metrotek | 3 comments »

Have you guys ever seen an ancient drill press like this one? It’s old…fortunately for more accurate work, I have access to a 24” radial floor model. This drill press in the accompanying photos is so heavy that I had to build a screw jack to raise and lower the drilling head for adjusting it on the column. I try to avoid this at all costs; I build risers for the drilling table. I think I’m going to build one of those that clamps to the column if I ...

Water leak in heater: 1, lathe bed: 0

06-07-2012 10:57 PM by Ryan Haasen | 3 comments »

Quite the little coincidence occurred today. My wood-shop teacher lent me some lubricant protector for my cast-iron table tops on my tools because I told him they were unprotected, he’s a great guy. So, when I get home from school and go to the shop to apply it, what do I see? The last foot of my lathe bed full of rust from a leak in the heater above it. Lets just say I was not very happy. I am guessing some of it was just rust drops from the ceiling, as there is a now a stain on the co...

Sharpened the blades.

10-11-2012 02:27 AM by jumbojack | 3 comments »

My local Woodcraft offers a blade sharpening service. They job it out; a guy comes by every Wednesday and brings back sharp blades the following Wednesday. I had no idea how bad my blades were. They came back with plastic coating across the newly sharpened toofs. I pitched it on the ole Shopsmith and ran a piece of mahogany from the scrap bin through. Seriously, it was like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed at the cut quality. The saw made a completely different sound. Looking back the...

Battery Organizer

12-17-2012 05:43 PM by Daris | 3 comments »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a battery organizer. I found this plan on the wood magazine website. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always check out my website at: www.woodlogger.com to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.
