There have been a few days off whilst I’ve been ill with diarrhoea (British spelling). Well the world has stopped falling out of my bottom so some progress has been made. This is the worst of the last images I left you with. However after a second coat of stripper on the stubborn parts and with some help from a hand wire brush and a wire wheel in my hand drill the results are none too shabby. Just in case you are wondering I am really not worried about the name plate and t...

If you own, plan to buy, or even make an overhead ambient air cleaner, you have to see this… I’m tired of buying expensive replacement filters, so I mounted a Wynn cartridge to my Jet air cleaner! It made the system WAY more efficient (lots more airflow), improved my air quality (the Wynn filter is MERV15), and I’ll never have to change it (the filter is infinitely cleanable). I made this video as part of our NEW DUST COLLECTION SECTION of our website to show you how to do i...
A long, long time ago we produced four episodes (90 minutes in total) full of useful information about Bill Pentz’ research and what is required for good fine dust collection. And we built a fill size cyclone with TWO blowers out of wood! This is a condensed version (15 minutes) of those original videos, containing just the best info and the project build- minus the fluff. It’s a great resource for anyone interested in improving the air in their shops! PLEASE SUBSCRIBE TO OU...
I was wondering if any of you Lumberjocks used the Suede Tex Blow on Flocking. I’ve used it in the past and had great results. My problem now is that I have a couple of different “Flock” colors, but the paint on adhesive that matches the colors has dried up. I’m wondering if I couldn’t take the flocking material into Home Depot and get them to match the color with a Latex paint and use that for my undercoat adhesive? Anybody done this successfully? The st...
I’m sorry. I couldn’t get this to post in the Coffee Lounge. He’s a pretty private guy, so I’m out on a bit of a limb, but … I knew you’d all want to know. His wife, Susan, posted this on Facebook: “Prayers needed for my sweetie. He had a heart attack last night, but is ok now. He had to have a stent on the right side of his heart. He’s comfortable now and in the hospital until tomorrow at least.” Let’s all keep Grizz i...
One good thing about doing lots of types of creative crafts is that every time I get to do something else, it is new and fresh to me and I am excited about it. I love painting and I love the recent needle artwork that I have been attempting, but I also love creating cool wood things on the scroll saw. There is something that is so calming and peaceful about following a line with a tiny blade to create 'graceful wood'. It is sometimes difficult to keep up with everything that is g...

I have yet only made 2 things from wood – self taught just to see if I could. They aren’t pretty or perfect but considering they were firsts for me, I feel I didn’t do too badly. The first was a puzzle frame. My miter saw was not squared up so the joints are off some. Routering out the back so the puzzle is recessed was interesting too (with router attachment for my Dremel)
