05-17-2012 04:24 PM by John | 3 comments »

and I thought my POS Buck Brothers plane was worthless… NOPE! it’s an awesome anode! evaporust was not as wonderful as i’d hoped (probably not enough prep by me); trying electrolysis. i think i read that this should be done at 6 amps, my choices are 2 (trickle) and 10 (fast) so i’m going with 2. might take longer, but what the heck…

Jointer Tables

06-02-2012 10:42 PM by flatboarder | 3 comments »

Hello Peoples, I have a question about my Jointer tables. It’s a G.I. 225hc m1 . After I s4s a 2 1/2’ square post thats 35” long I went back to fix one that wasnt square to the adjacent side. When doing so I noticed that the jointer was tapering the board from back to front?. In other words it was getting thinner at the end of the cut. My technique is good so its not that . Is it because the outfeed table is higher at the far end or is it because its lower at the far end. ...

One of my favorite pass times is playing pool (Billiards) and I thought this would be a cool project to share with you.

01-06-2014 09:51 PM by rhett | 3 comments »

Too cold to spray finish and waiting on blades, so here is a quick blog on a technique to make matching curves for bent laminations. NOTE: The desired final thickness of your lamination is equal to the diameter of the bottom bearing trim bit you use in this method. Blanks for the jig. 4 pieces of 3/4” ply to make a 3” deep jig. Cut and faired 1/4” template is used to get initial curve on a piece of 3/4” ply. Flush trimmed curve is used as bearing reference...

Custom Guitar Pedalboard #4: An Evening's Work Waisted...

07-10-2008 05:14 PM by Budman | 3 comments »

I started the insert… I purposely sized it to be a ‘snug’ fit into base… Cut the parts, cut rabbet’s for the joints… test fitted that ‘snug’ fit… Glued and nailed it together, only then to realize that the good ‘snug’ fit in the base is going to be an unwanted ‘snug’ fit for the lid!!! After thinking about it, and showing my son what it looks like in three dimensions, we came up with some better ideas… I’ll be taking a step backwards and building this part over again ...

Tool thoughts #17: New Pen Mills & I'm a glutton for Pen-ishment... a different swap underway

04-10-2009 06:08 PM by NedB | 3 comments »

I’m a member over on the IAP forums, and they recently had a group buy which I took advantage of for $15 a set, plus shipping you could order a full set of pen mill shafts and heads in all the usual diameters… interchangeable shafts and two different heads, one 4 blade, one 6 blade. Oh, and just for fun I started another pen swap over on Here’s the box as it stands now. A buddy of mine and I jointly loaded it up for the startup: Ther...

Shop reorganization

09-11-2009 05:57 AM by Joe Watson | 3 comments »

I have been working to try getting my shop in better shape. When we bought the house we live in now I wanted a 3 car garage to use the third stall as my shop but I always had it too cluttered to have it as my shop. my dad was in town this week so he designed me a wood shelf to stack wood on which helps a lot in cleaning my space. Also got both of our cars back in the garage as well. I put the pictures up in my workshop area of my lumberjocks account.
