The suspended outfeed table

02-19-2011 06:59 AM by Hopdevil | 10 comments »

There are some fabulous examples of outfeed tables on this site and others. Most of them rely on legs or wheels for support. My problem is that my garage floor is VERY uneven. Since I move my saw around a lot, I would have to spend a lot of time leveling it to compensate. I wanted to come up with something that I wouldn’t have to keep adjusting. I decided to create one that is suspended from the rail of the fence support. Here is the saw before starting. I created some supports from 2 ...

Church Clock Project #1: Build The Inside First

02-19-2011 05:15 AM by William | 4 comments »

Well it FINALLY happened. I finally got enough caught up on around here and had a good enough health day to start a new project. Until I can order my new plans, I wanted to get started on something else. So here goes.I decided to build a church clock. I’ve only built one of these before. When I did, a lady I know snatched it up and took it home with her before I even had a chance to take some decent photos of it. She was so excited I didn’t have the heart to tell her anything besi...

Table Saw Upgrade #4: Powering a 5HP Monster with Single Phase Power

02-19-2011 04:34 AM by MikeGCNY | 6 comments »

So, just as I suspected, the 66 came with a fairly new 5 horse 3 phase Baldor motor. (Yeah Me!) I was able to figure this out by calling Baldor’s customer service and reading them through the different numbers on the motor plate. As it turns out, the motor is only 2 years old. The saw is 22. As many of you know from reading other posting on Lumberjocks, there are several options to consider when your shop simply has single phase power and your machinery requires 3 phase power. The ...

Chessboard #2: Drawers and Posts

02-19-2011 04:28 AM by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Today I got off work early and the weather was +10 so I spent some time in the garage. I dovetailed the maple drawer and got the second walnut corner post turned. I had also glued up the 8 board stripes last night so I did some flattening to the board to prepare it to be crosscut. The dovetails turned out good on one side, but on the other I have some gaps so I might put some shims in at glue up. I have the drawer bottoms planed to thickness but still have not decided for sure if the drawers ...

I need help in deciding what to build next.

02-19-2011 01:35 AM by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...
