Indexing on a Wood Lathe #1: Setting up a 36 and 72 Degree Index

07-04-2015 06:03 PM by Jim Jakosh | 6 comments »

I have a locking index wheel built into my Craftsman lathe and it works well but it is set at every 15 degrees. In an effort to make 5 or 10 equal divisions, I found I needed another index wheel so I decided to add it to back of the lathe chuck. I used aluminum but hardwood or steel would have worked too. I was wondering what I had in my shop that was accurate for setting degrees and pulled the Wixie box(Grizzly version). I mounted a steel bar on the plate for the back of the chuck so the Wix...

Maple/oak project/desk #6: Lid restart,meeting angles...didn't

07-04-2015 04:44 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...

I have a little vise #5: The big cover up

07-04-2015 12:28 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

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...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #56: Make your ambient air cleaner (Jet, Delta, etc.) a lot better!

07-03-2015 09:59 PM by StumpyNubs | 14 comments »

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...

The Stumpy Nubs Workshop #55: What makes a good cyclone? (Let's make one from wood...)

07-03-2015 09:53 PM by StumpyNubs | 0 comments »

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...

Suede Tex Blow on Flocking

07-03-2015 07:27 PM by cajunpen | 3 comments »

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...

GRIZZMAN HAD A HEART ATTACK

07-03-2015 05:22 PM by NBeener | 32 comments »

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...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1584: Scrolling Binge

07-03-2015 11:32 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

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...
