instead of putting tension on the arm itself, the Davinci catapult uses the flexibility of two wooden pilars called flex rods. I will used the mortise machine to create the cradle for them then I will attach them directly to the catapult.

Short blog today. Not much shop time. Cut the 60 degree angles on the sides of the box inner. and fitted them into the outer shell. Still nothing glued at this stage as a lot of work to be done on the inner (Padauk) liner before I can even attempt this. First I need to mark the inside to register the position on the inner where the legs will pass through the outer Remove the masking tape from one leg side and remove the Sycamore spacer. Its then a simple matt...

Maintaining your equipment #1: Machine Maintenance

03-29-2009 06:58 PM by RBWoodworker | 3 comments »

I want to let anyone who is experiencing problems with their saws, especially when they are making unusual sounds to do everything they can to pinpoint the problem, and to not just ignore them.. unusual sounds are being caused by something either faulty or out of alignment..I had the problem with my saw sounding too loud and did not sound like it did when i first purchased it..I found that the pulley was working itself loose..pulleys commonly have only 1 set screw to secure them to the motors...

Architecture #2: The boathouse, wooden wheels and giant grinding wheels

08-09-2010 06:25 PM by Woodcanuck | 3 comments »

This past weekend, I was giving my nephew a tour of the old boathouse at my parents’ cottage. It occurred to me that it was interesting to see the very rustic construction techniques used, so I began snapping pictures, thinking I’d discuss them here a little bit. In the process, I stumbled across a few things I hadn’t seen in years and a few that I never noticed before. Here are a couple of pictures of the inside construction, didn’t think to show the outside, w...

new ideas #7: I made it into the shop finally

04-20-2011 02:24 PM by JoeyG | 3 comments »

I have been grabbing an hour here and there letting things like the grass slide (I am going to do it when I finish this post). I have 6 boxes well on there way, pieces cut for another 9, and that takes care of most of Christmas. Here are a few pics of my progress so far. I have used a lot of different woods and think that most are listed in early post in this thread. I hope to be able to post some of them completely finished soon. As with all things, time will tell. !

Delta Mortiser 14-651 #15: Added depth gauge

05-26-2011 01:12 PM by LegendInMyOwnMind | 3 comments »

I went to Harbor Freight and bought the clamping dial indicator with vice grips and gooseneck extension. It’s really pretty cool. Here’s a couple of pictures. A couple of FWIWs… - Although the goose-neck does adjust, there’s a pretty limited range on it.- There are surprisingly few spots to clamp that allow the goose-neck to reach “just right”.- No matter where I put the gauge on the back fence, it’s going to interfere with somethi...
