Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #1: Old Delta 20" Bandsaw

04-11-2011 03:43 AM by Loren | 3 comments »

I’ve had the saw for a long time. It was an unappealing, original but distressed gray and when I set out to paint it I found some white metal primer laying aroundso I used that. I liked the way the white reflected light so I kept the color. Maybe someday I’ll get around to painting it some fancy color, but for nowI like the white. Originally the old girl was wired for 3 phase. I put 22 amp motor on her. It’s115 volts, which is odd. My electrician put in a 30 a...

Saw Making #3: Gents Saw Conversion Part 2

06-23-2016 11:05 PM by AgentTwitch | 3 comments »

Part two of the Gents Saw Conversion series. This may be a bit verbose, so I apologize ahead of time. After all, we are just drilling holes… The next step in the conversion process is drilling holes. A lot of holes. You will need a variety of forstner and twist drill bits to complete these steps. With your template affixed to your stock, use an awl to create reference points on all of the indicated locations, or use the spur on the forstner to create a divot. Apply moderate pr...

Marine Corps Naval cannon project #6: Another boring adventure.

07-26-2016 08:57 PM by Trapper brandenburger | 3 comments »

Today I finished up mortising the crossmember in and bored them for all thread. (Thanks for the tip tblank). I also routered a groove in the elevation platform for the elevation wedge to slide on. Then I did a dry fit of everything. I have a few other things to do on this project but I should be able to start glueing tomorrow! Elevation platform and wedge. Here I am marking the main runners for boring be taping this all thread thru my crossmember. Time to test fit! Front Rear

Goodbye Linden Tree

09-24-2011 06:34 AM by mmh | 3 comments »

This is a sad ending to a beautiful shade tree that must have been planted some 50 years ago in front of our house. It was situated on the public property on the streetside and provided a lot of shade. It almost provided too much shade for my front garden area, as the limbs drooped quite low and the numerous branches were quite dense. The main trunk divided into three secondary trunks and two of them were noticably dying and branches were constantly growing and drooping over the powerlin...

Skill Building #2: Learning More of the Things!!!

08-22-2016 10:08 PM by CraftyCantrell | 3 comments »

I’ve switched to a largely video format, as it’s easier to hit record at the beginning of a process, hit stop at the end, and then edit out the unusable bits. This week I undertook Lesson 1: Assignment 6: Tongue and Groove Joint Here is the video: Link included above, as I’m not sure that the video is loading correctly here. And you can read my full write-up on my regular blog

Les Paul 2011 #1: Starting up

12-10-2011 09:50 AM by Josh Sollows | 3 comments »

Alright, well, I’ve been meaning to post this for a while now but never got around to it. I did this guitar last year in 2010/2011 and I figured I’d show you how I did it. So, these stages here are the initial stages of building this guitar. The back of the guitar is mahogany, and the front is tiger maple. I used a pre-created template to layout the pickup holes, and neck pocket After routing out the neck pocket and pickup areas, the block of wood I started with, ...

Trestle Table #15: Flatten Table Top

09-29-2016 03:17 AM by HappyHowie | 3 comments »

It has been about a week since I glued my cherry hardwood table top together. As you might remember if you have followed my blog, I also make clamping cauls that I used during the top glue up. Even though I used these cambered cauls I still had some ridges at the jointed edges. I intended to use only my #6 bench plane and my #4 smoother to flatten both sides of my table top. I began that process and quickly wished that I owned a low angle jack plane. I was tempted. What I did do was to ...
