Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Delta 46-715 Lathe Repower #4: Getting Pullies running True and Accurate

01-16-2017 12:56 PM by Pete_LJ | 1 comment »

Sorry for taking so long to get back to you on this project. Honestly, we had a renovation on the house going on which required all my attention. Let me recap a little regarding where I was back at my last entry, hurdles, solutions and new issues. In my last entry, I had lined up the belt and pulleys by eye. Additionally, I had a custom keyway made by the local machinist whereby the 46-715’s 3mm key slot was able to mate to the keyway 5/16” (equivalent to 8mm) slot of the M...

Maple and Cherry Box #7: Fixes, Finger Joints, Sanding, and Finishing Prep

01-16-2017 09:30 AM by Cheapguy82 | 1 comment »

I’ve been sick for about a week, so I was unable to do anything with this project so for those of you who are following along and looking forward to my next entry, my apologies for the delay. All of the repairs set up pretty well and are stable. I tried making a paste with sawdust and glue for the repairs to the maple (in each of the four corners, where my router bit went too deep), but the color isn’t right. They’re stable, and the box is for me, so it’s ok. I think part of the issue with...

Hepplewhite Stand #6: Frame Members Sized for Tenons

01-16-2017 09:26 AM by Ron Aylor | 0 comments »

What crazy weather we’ve been having in Atlanta. One week there’s ice all over everything with temperatures in the teens, and the next week we are all running around in shorts enjoying temperatures in the 70s. It’s a wonder we’re not all in the hospital! Taking advantage of the warm days, I decided to put in a few hours cutting the frame members to size and forming the tenons. First, I ripped the front, sides and back to the required 4-1/2” width.  After jointing th...

Ratcheting Hex Wrench

01-16-2017 07:03 AM by Alask | 1 comment »

Hello fellows,the idea at this new set below is pretty nice but sometimes we use a hex wrench not very often to invest this money. I would like to share a way I use to ratchet my hex wrench when I need it. If you have a set of normal ratchet wrenches you can insert the hex wrench and transform it in a ratchet hex wrench. See the pictures below (Metric sizes): Normaly I use in bigger hex wrenches (most common on my proje...

Rustic White Finishing

01-16-2017 05:53 AM by FCC | 0 comments »

Got a costumer looking for a kitchen similar to this rustic/distressed white. Has any one ever done this finish before? Been doing some research looking like some people are priming, painting and then staining the cabinets. If so would that process work with a white lacquer? Thoughts, comments, concerns? Thanks!

Shop storage projects #9: The dresser build, side #2 is started...

01-15-2017 08:42 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

After a few other items were taken care of. Got an early wake up call this morning. Seems one of the Shop Cats caught a small Black Bat. She even brought it upstairs to show off her catch….squeaking all the time….of course, the bat got away from her. Finally trapped the little critter under a broom. And with the help of the dust pan to hold the critter, I did a Catch & Release, right out the back door of the house. Last seen, the bat was flying west, as fast as it...

Hope Chest for Daughter #2 #18: Hand sanding & sealing the panels

01-15-2017 05:38 PM by Mainiac Matt | 3 comments »

Went to Home Depot today and bought sanding sponges, sand paper and a nice little sanding block… All hand sanding tonight, working through the grits 150 – 180 – 220 Then I vacuumed the panels, blew them off with air, wiped them down with a tack clothe (mistake?), buffed the out with a cotton rag, and hit them with a rattle can of Shellac as a seal coat. My daughter doesn’t want a gloss finish, so I’m thinking satin laquer, and she wants to be abl...
