1935 16ft Garwood Speedster Replica #5: It has been a long time since my last post

01-27-2015 09:17 AM by ccanderson102 | 0 comments »

A Lot has happened since my last blog entry First lets start with the project statusHours. 101.0 Cost 2551.09 Last February 2014 we packed up and moved to Houston for a new career. The Garwood project was dismantled and shoved in a shed until we found a house and the project could be relocated. I spent the better part of the summer setting t up the workshop in the garage. Once that was complete I built a new strongback and resumed the build. I finally figured out how to build the ...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #3: ASSEMBLY, Installation & 1st Use

01-27-2015 03:16 AM by Morton WoodWorks | 0 comments »

First off, wow, I can’t believe that I never finished this blog. And, for that, I apologize but I was too excited after I completed it that I never took the time to get back to it. So, here it goes. Unfortunately, since it is all put together, all I have to provide is the minimal pictures that I took during assembly. Nothing about putting it together was very difficult, but ensuring an air-tight seal makes it run all the better. The first aspect of construction is to create the...

Getting frustrated with organization (or lack thereof)

01-27-2015 02:10 AM by Nate L. | 0 comments »

I have had a shop set up in my garage for the last 3 years. I have learned and grown a lot. One thing I have not been good at is organization. Finding a system that works for me that I can maintain has proved very difficult. I have been feeling more and more discouraged with shop clutter as my shop has grown. Hopefully I can get a system down that works.

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #8: It's done!!! Ready to start turning!!!

01-26-2015 08:46 PM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 4 comments »

I got it done. The only thing I might do is paint the additional parts on the motor cover battleship gray. The scale was made with a clear self-adhesive shipping label. I got out my tachometer and made a test run and marked the speeds on the lathe. I then took a photo of this pencil scale head-on and laid out on my computer the scale. I made a printout and went to OfficeMax and they copied it on the shipping label for 68 cents. Can’t beat that! I put the switch for the DC ...

Morris Chair #5: The Bent Arm Conumdrum

01-26-2015 08:39 PM by Luddite | 0 comments »

26 Jan 2015 Darn it! Ran into a ‘conumdrum’ of being unable to make the crooked morris chair arm as I did in the past. You know, cut from corner to corner and flip the cuts around. Well, I’ve been kinda dreading this time. My bandsaw is just not up to taking a 5” piece. Using the table saw isn’t on the radar either. Hmmmm? So as Baldrick would say to Black Adder: “Sir,I’ve a clevr idear. We could grow a tree with a 9.5 degree bend and w...

Auger handle restoration #2: About a blank

01-26-2015 03:30 PM by woodcox | 1 comment »

Trying to source hickory in the dimensions I need for a turning blank were more difficult than I anticipated. I looked in to bat billets but found them extremely expensive. I even looked into large hand tool handles, like sledge hammers and such. I could have made them work but there would be very small waste margin and seemed like more work than it was worth. I found 8/4 hickory dowels online but minimum orders and shipping were out of the question. I knew the best thing would be to just ...
