Refurbish Powermatic Table Saw #2: Strip and Remove Rust from the Table Top

10-31-2011 03:42 AM by bch | 3 comments »

First I used a citrus stripper to remove the finish dried to the table. I am very pleased with the results and the product: If I recall correctly it took two rounds of stripping: With the finish removed, on to removing rust from the table top! I used a new product for rust removal this time, as shown in the photograph. I followed the directions, rather than my own common sense, which I regret. The product worked fine, but the instructions were to apply, wait ...

Refurbishing a Craftsman "King Seeley" tablesaw

12-31-2011 07:23 AM by biltron | 3 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks - I’m renting a house that came with an old table saw in the basement – a Craftsman – made by King Seeley Corporation. I found a good description of it here: and the manual here: Eventually I hope to buy a house and get a “real” table saw, but in the meantime, I thought I’d see wh...

UnNamed #4: Not Forgotten

04-18-2012 12:54 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I bet you guys thought I would never finish this blog. Well I had a month or two building bookcases then another few weeks cleaning, reorganizing, and painting my shop. I just posted a couple of pics of the shop. I have also finished up a few small boxes to put in the local day spa that carries some of my boxes. Now I am ready to pull this one off the shelf and get it finished. I have had a while to think on it. I am still not exactly sure what direction it will take to get to the finis...

Frank Lloyd Wright Contest #2: How's your FLW project coming along?

07-20-2012 01:58 AM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

For those who didn’t know about it or catch my first blog post about this, I figured we could have a fun little Frank Lloyd Wright inspired build off. The rules and time frame are all covered in the first blog in this series. The more the merrier. I hope to get a lot of people to enter. I think it will be cool to see what we all come up with. I must admit that I have not gotten much farther that checking out a couple of books online. I did finally decide on a house that I think...

Shop-made veneer/nipping press #1: basic parts

01-13-2013 09:34 PM by CJay | 3 comments »

As i’ve lost all access to the veneer press at college and not being able to afford a vacuum press i’ve been looking at book-binders (or nipping) presses. ...which are still several hundred pounds. Plan B:- make one. I have no real plan for this, just a general idea. Here we go. The top, bottom and press are made out of any sheet material i could find.Cut it up, stick it back together to make thicker boards and trim to size (400mm x 300mm) At this point i act...

J. H. Rosberg Mfg. Co. - Chicago #2: Day 2 - I'm reposting photos of my Dad's workbench to my Blog

07-24-2013 05:24 PM by Nancster | 3 comments »

Here are photos of my Dad’s beloved bench. He spent quite a few hours sitting at this bench repairing old clocks, cleaning watches, etc. I remember a time when he was repairing four or five cuckoo clocks. What a noise they all made! However, Mom wasn’t exactly happy with all the noise, but we kids loved watching the wooden birds pop out. As I said in my profile, I’m not a woodworker, but would like to access the knowledge here about how to refinish vintage wooden...

Work Shop Organization #2: Power Tool Storage Update

01-02-2015 11:14 AM by Nate66 | 3 comments »

After drawing the plans, I went to the store to purchase the lumber to build the storage box. Had to make a few substitutions due to the price of lumber here in England. Instead of using ply, I settled for MDF. Still quite expensive but nothing near the price of ply or pine. Anyway, I will post pictures of the work in progress.

Barnsley Reproduction Build #14: Gluing up the Frame

01-14-2015 03:51 AM by stevo_wis | 3 comments »

I was finally ready to glue up the frame. It happened that my friends Terry and Kris came over and were there for the glue up. The joints really can’t be clamped easily, but the 3/8” pegs and the offset in the draw bored holes pulled it together. I whittled a oak spindle down to about 7/16” in diameter and then drove it through a steel plate that was drilled at exactly 3/8”. I forgot to take a picture of the dowel making, but will include one later. After ...

Working with recycled timber #35: 1800 x700 Work bench

02-16-2015 06:27 AM by robscastle | 3 comments »

I have an ongoing problem with too many wood working Project Creations too much WW materials and not enough room.There is very little I can do to improve the situation but dump “stuff” or work out a better storage system.Dumping is not an option as I may as well give away my beloved woodworking activities, so this is what I did. I had lots of recycled timber so I chose to convert them it into a work bench, thinking I could solve both problems at once so its really a storage ...
