Plane Restorations #1: Keen Kutter KK8 restoration

07-29-2016 05:44 PM by MikeUT | 3 comments »

My wife gave me this plane for my birthday last year. Life was pretty crazy last year so it took a lot longer for me to restore it and when I finished it I never posted any photos. The restoration was pretty straightforward for the most part. There was some surface rust but nothing major. Most of the Japanning was got so I decided to repaint it. The only unusual problem was the tote. The tail was broken off and the bottom was a bit beaten up. I decided to make a new tote but the angle w...

Industrial Scale Dust Collection #8: wrapping it up

07-29-2016 05:44 PM by Mainiac Matt | 14 comments »

I just recently realized that I never wrapped this blog up. So today I will add some pics of the final installation and a few notes about our trials and travails to GC this project in-house, with a second hand system. Here it is from the outside…. In this pic you can see the tower, the 28” diameter “suck pipe” coming out of the building and the material transport loop, which has it’s own blower and transports the debris that drops out of the rotary air loc...

Oneida Super Dust Gorilla #1: Assembly

07-29-2016 04:48 PM by Redoak49 | 1 comment »

Several months ago, I purchased a new dust collector. Before, I had a Jet 1.5 HP dust collector with a cartridge filter and vortex cone. It did an OK job and was piped into my shop with 4” PVC. My measurements of the flow at the dust collector were 670 CFM at the 6” port and only 450 CFM at the 4” port with a maximum static pressure was 10.25”. I wanted to get a cyclone style and looked at the ClearVue and the Oneida. While ClearVue makes a very good cyclone, they do not provide a comp...

After I returned from my vacation there was a nice surprise delivered at my home. Again it was clear how enjoyable it is to be a member of LJ. LJ makes the world a little smaller. In the past I have had a lot of support from members and some helped me with (building) problems. Sometimes there were willing to send drawings from the USA to me. Great fellows. This time I got a nice hammer from Klaus (AKA Kiefer). A hammer made by himself from hickory, walnut and leather. And I’m verry...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1752: Little Boxes

07-29-2016 12:30 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

Yesterday I was away on an 'adventure'.  For most people, it wouldn't be what they considered 'exciting' but for me it was a nice day. Keith's mom had her knee reconstructed this past April. Everything went well and she is doing better than ever on it. However, she still has one more procedure to have done on her other knee. That will be done in the upcoming months. Yesterday was a 'girl's day' in which we traveled up the valley to New Minas,...

Makeup case #1: Building a case to hold wife/daughter's make up

07-29-2016 04:49 AM by slydog | 2 comments »

I never really thought about building something to hold my wife’s makeup “stuff” until I saw her digging through cases and drawers to get to the implements and concoctions. I had some scraps and so created a basic box structure to hold (what I thought) were those items. As we know the first rendition of a new idea isn’t the greatest, so I’ll just skip over that part and move on to what the current project is – the next version. The basic idea I found ...

Horsing Around (A Sawhorse Project) #1: A moment of ingenuity followed by stupidity

07-29-2016 04:21 AM by YusukeKomiya | 2 comments »

I wanted to chisel out a tenon since I didn’t have any good saws for ripcuts (though I do have one for crosscuts). After I made a crosscut for the shoulders I was trying to figure out how to proceed without a vise (on another note if anyone has recommendations for a good vise under $100 I’m all ears). Here’s my makeshift leg vise (or post vise maybe?). Everything looking good so far. So I insert the 1st leg (from previous photo) and everything fits. Now on to the ...

Big Rig by T& J #3: dressing up the inside

07-29-2016 04:04 AM by svfdfireman | 6 comments »

I stayed out of the shop the last few days. Got back this afternoon. Looking at the plans for the Rig, I realized that the interior was going to be totally empty. searching in the scrap pile, I found some wood and created a few things. They are all in need of sanding. But the idea and size seen to work Gas, break, and clutch peddle are red ceder. The seats are walnut with ceder, the gear shift is maple, turned on a drill press, and cut with a sharp screwdriver. The housing is ceder. The das...

New Shop! #11: Finished (Years Later)

07-29-2016 02:24 AM by Ryan Haasen | 6 comments »

Let me first apologize to those of you who were following my shop build back in 2012 – I forgot to post the finished product! I suppose my incomplete blog is the result of a combination of excitement with my new shop and just being busy with woodworking, school, and life in general. I know that if I was following a build and they failed to post the complete shop, I’d be a little ticked off! Now that I’ve got that out of the way, let’s move on to the shop. I will beg...
