Got Sled?

04-16-2011 11:46 PM by Farrout | 5 comments »

I read about the super sled on a few sites. They all seemed wonderful, but somewhat complex.I wondered what a simple one would do for me. I had a piece of 1/2 inch plywood, some 3/4” wide stock, and a few 2×4’s laying around so I thought I’d see what I could do. I cut the 3/4” stock to fit in the channels of the table saw so they were just even with the top. Then, I cut a the plywood 24” x 36”. I put the strips in the groves and ...

Staircase spindle update

04-16-2011 04:56 PM by Doug Scott | 3 comments »

Not yet finished, but not counting them in my sleep yet either. After 90 spindles and standing in front of the Legacy machine for 10 to 12 hours in the past 4 weeks this job is getting tiring. Made 10of them for the fire place, but their are going to be a few mistakes or OPP’S.And then after three design changes from the customer, and two days down time with a touch of the flew I’ll maybe get this job out of the shop. This is giving me a good lesson on how to set-up jobs on th...

Trying to decide - Looking to buy a new bandsaw

04-16-2011 04:40 PM by nobuckle | 12 comments »

Recently I have been looking at buying a new bandsaw. My current 14” Shopcraft bandsaw has performed pretty well but it has it’s limits. One frustration with the Shopcraft is finding blades for it. 70-1/2” blades are not the most readily available. There are several brands that I have considered, Rigid, Porter Cable, and Central Machinery. Ideally I would like a Delta but Woodcraft is the only place I can get it and they want more than $600. I can’t do that. T...

Some things I did to my Craftsman 10” bandsaw!

04-16-2011 04:17 PM by D_Allen | 6 comments »

Well, I thought I’d share these modifications in case someone wants to tinker with their saw as well. The quick release mechanism as described here requires that you drill holes in the machine and fabricate some metal. If you are not comfortable with either of those then this may not be for you. What I fabricated works but is not pretty so keep the laughter to a low roar! Your design will vary depending on what parts you decide to use. First off, it was necessary to perform the standar...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #311: It's Beginning to Look A Lot Like CHRISTMAS (!?!)

04-16-2011 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 11 comments »

Working in the publishing industry sometimes make you feel like you are Alice in Wonderland. Nothing makes sense. There is no sense of time, space or season. Displacing holidays has been a part of my life for many, many years. I remember well the hot summer days when my friend Cari and I sat at the pool, watching the kids swim while we were on the side painting Santas and Christmas items. I remember how ironic it was that the beads of sweat would be falling on Mr. Snowman while I was t...

Tool Gloat Too

Well there I was, on the job, and I notice this Cabinet saw sitting in the doorway of this business, right next to the footpath. Had a bit of rust on the cast iron table but otherwise looked alright. So I grabbed a business card and rang them back a few days later. The reason for calling back is that they may have been influenced by my work gear, as I am a Government Inspector. So I ring up, “hi I saw the cabinet saw in the doorway and was wondering what is happening with it”....

Jammin In The Shop (Take 2)

04-16-2011 05:21 AM by DocK16 | 17 comments »

As some of you know from a previous posts my shop is a free-standing building behind my house that doubles as a playroom for Dad and his WW as well as son and his music. They were practicing the other night when I was in the shop cleaning. There’s been several blogs about what kind of music everyone listens to in the shop but I think I can claim the only shop with live entertainment.
