I get excited when I see box trucks come down over the hill at the yard. They’re loaded with crates usualy. This time was a framed crate with decking for a boat that’s being worked on. I saw board feet just waiting to be salvaged. Quite a bit of pine and some spruce. With very few knots. Last time was all rough 1×4 oak. As you can see I try to reuse quite a bit. I finaly invested in some rails and brackets to help organize a little better.

Old and new Projects in a New Workshop #1: First projects

08-11-2011 02:24 PM by garyjs | 2 comments »

We moved into a new home from a very small apartment. Fortunately for me, the new place has a 2-car garage; I claimed it right away as a workshop. So far, I’ve been able to actually use half of it to set up my new shop. I’ve had larger workshops over the years, and made money from them. Here, I hope to build 36-string lever harps starting next year. Don’t know if I’ll make money on this one, but that’s my plan. Right now, I’m working with a Skilsaw, hand...

Shop in the Sky #5: Lathe Table with dust collection

09-09-2011 11:00 PM by EROCK | 2 comments »

Newest addition to the ongoing project is a new table for my mini lathe. I had issues before with chips/dust collecting under the motor, causing it to get extremely hot. My solution to this was to use the table saw dust collection hood that I had laying around and inset it into the table top. I feel this will adequately stop the dust from collecting, as well as cause a stream of cool air to constantly be passing by the motor, causing it to run much cooler. After I get a chance to test o...

Rehab of a pair of braces

11-11-2011 04:15 AM by need2boat | 2 comments »

After reading Andy’s blogs on cleaning up braces I dug these two out out of the back shed. They were in the family for years. The chrome has been rusted off the millers falls for years but I figured what better to start on. The stanley SPOFFORD brace wasn’t as bad but needed a bit more tighting up of the top knob which was a bit tricky. The end results aren’t the prettiest but work great. On I side note I really didn’t expect to like the spofford brance much but as...

Projects #5: Lathe land updates

08-12-2012 06:46 PM by NedB | 2 comments »

Don’t know if you spotted this yesterday, but I ‘finished’ my wolverine clone and mounted it to the wall next to my lathe. today I decided to throw together a tool rack: quick, efficient and budget friendly (the PVC was $4) cut the pipe on the miter saw, at 22.5° so that shavings can be cleared out easily. the shelf was a left over leg from a bench I don’t have room for. Drilled pilot holes on the Drill press and that made putting the pipes up very eas...

My TINY shop renovation #2: Plans are starting to come together.

01-09-2013 03:48 AM by StayinBroke | 2 comments »

So, starting this blog yesterday and putting ideas down in my idea book has helped ease my frustrations with my shop so much that this entry just might be a little more, um, ..... normal. If there is such a thing. (Well, the beers I drank last night may have had a little to do with that too) I think it’s because I can share my thoughts and ideas with people here that have similar problems since my wife doesn’t get it and really doesn’t care. Anyway, I wanted to start this en...

The Coolidge Chronicles #20: Part 4 - 1952 Delta Multiplex 40-B 12"-14" Radial Arm Saw Rebuild

01-19-2014 02:27 AM by darthford | 2 comments »

In part 4 re-assembly begins. I decided to assemble it on the stand vs my workbench and lifting on the stand afterwards so step 1 assemble the stand. Hmmm…the original stand I guess it has that arts deco thing going for it but that’s about all. 40 count them 40 rusted on screws hold it together. I’d have to start by grinding them all off with a grinder, then de-rust, sand, paint this thing and when that was done I’d have a arts deco stand that was not very practical...
