Alaska Jim's Comments of the Day #21: Quick and Dirty Mod for my Cheapo Router Table.........but not quick and dirty enuf......

03-14-2010 05:51 AM by Jim Bertelson | 8 comments »

Spent a lot of time yesterday and today, just making my old cheapo router table that I bought long ago, Vermont American, fit my new router. It fit it fine, except, the only way to get the motor in and out was to remove the table from the base, the legs were not high enuf. I could change bits above the table, adjust the height of the bit from above the table, things I never expected when I bought this emergency rotor replacement, although I did a lot of research in a couple hours deciding whi...

Got my Grizzly ultimate bandsaw

03-14-2010 05:02 AM by Tim29 | 8 comments »

Today we went to Springfield to get a new Grizzly 14” ultimate bandsaw. I have to say that the Grizzly showroom is basically like Disneyland for us Lumberjocks. Everywhere you look its like “OOH I want to try that” or “Hey I could use that for project x”. I know that this is just a personal taste thing but I thought the best thing I saw was the face frame clamp table from kreg. its a huge table with pnuematic clamps that are on a sliding bar. Of course to use thi...

Got Lucky

Not a big fan of garage sales, but my wife is, so in an effort to not discourage her from going she will call me if she sees any tools (I think she is doing reverse psychology, it works), most of the stuff she finds is junky, but today she asked if I needed a hand sander, I always ask for her to send me a pic. This is what she sent It was pretty ruff looking when I went to look at it, no batteries or charger. Caked with stuff, looked like drywall dust and over spray, the shroud looked ...

The "What am I doing?" Holtzapffel Workbench #3: The glue up

03-14-2010 04:23 AM by DragonLady | 8 comments »

Started gluing up tonight. Doing one or two at a time, depending on how the pieces look. Going pretty smoothly so far. Spread some glue, position and clamp, set the timer for 35 mins. Rinse and repeat. I filed some notches in a cheap 3” plastic scraper I had laying around and I’m using that to spread the glue with. Works really well. Got nine done tonight. Will do the rest tomorrow, and then comes the really hard part of flattening and smoothing the surface. With on...

Entertainment Center #7: Finally complete

03-14-2010 03:07 AM by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

Well I finally got the installation complete and a final payment. Last saturday we installed the unit, but the base moulding didn’t match the existing (one number off). So I had to purchase some new base. I had my brother, neal, and Heidi with me on the initial install. Neal delivered it in the van, Jeff helped with the main installation, and Heidi helped clean, hand things, and look purdy. Today I went back and spent an hour to complete the base. Heidi went with me and helped clean...

...and that includes slathering glue on the ends (let’s try that) and going inside from time to time so I could dunk my head in the sink. First time with the drawknife, fun!
