Torque Work Centre #4: Cutting Dados--The Easy Way

05-18-2010 04:48 AM by Kent Shepherd | 17 comments »

Short of owning a CNC Router, I can’t think of a better way to cut dados. This is my first attempt at a video. I discovered what a huge learning curve is involved and hopefully I’ll get better. —Gee I love computers! With a lot of help from my lovely wife, here it is—Enjoy! Thanks for watching.Kent

Bed #6: Hey look, it looks like a bed now

05-18-2010 04:40 AM by tyskkvinna | 8 comments »

Started off by sanding and finishing the other frame part. And then.. putting things together! O.o Did the other side.. Like my support for that piece? Couple slabs of 8/4 maple on a milk crate. Hey, it worked. I had to fiddle with this a fair amount because I really had no idea what I was doing. Magically, it worked. Also – the frame is FAR sturdier than I was anticipating. Awesomesauce. The brackets are really snug (snug enough that I had to re-screw a couple spots so...

Shop (Garage) Redo #1: Pete mutters to self..."remember to enable scripts on wife's computer before typing blog entrys

05-18-2010 04:23 AM by PASs | 1 comment »

Ok, must figure out how to move first entry in this blog into the series…after pounding the keyboard for an hour last night to vent my frustration on my week-old, week-behind shop remodel, I find that it didn’t post as a series because I didn’t click on the teeny, tiny window banner that popped up when I selected “start new series” at the beginning of my electronic tirade. But, not to worry, will figure it out later…must type now, caffeine levels are high, ...

outfeed extension for Bosch 4100

05-18-2010 03:04 AM by mstenner | 4 comments »

In another conversation about the 4100 I mentioned an outfeed extension I made for mine, and I thought I’d post some pictures. This is made to add onto the Bosch-produced extension (the metal bits). The Bosch extension is fine for 90% of what I do, but when ripping things upwards of 4 feet, it’s nice to have a little more. This locks into the little grooves intended for miter slot clearance and sits just below the metal extension to avoid snags. It folds up for easy storage. ...

Drum Sander #5: Result!

05-17-2010 10:13 PM by BritBoxmaker | 12 comments »

After some thought and more than a little scribbling I came up with this bracket to hold the motor. Its made of 15mm birch ply and so relatively robust .May not look much but in my experience simplest is best. Here is the motor installed.You basically loosen both bolts. Hold the motor up slightly to fix the belt to the appropriate pulleys. Let it drop to take up the slack and tighten the bolts back up. The pivot point is the top right of the three holes.The darn thing works in all three speed...

The Wine Rack #7: Going around in semicircles

05-17-2010 04:51 PM by Todd Clare | 6 comments »

Made some more progress on the wine rack this weekend. My goal was to complete the small racks that hold the necks of the bottles. Each required 5 semicircular holes at 1 1/2” diameter each. I was smart enough to realize that the centers of the large rack holes would be the same as the small ones, so I lined them all up against a board clamped to my bench (to keep them aligned) and marked the center lines. Lesson learned: I really need a drill press table. Up to now I’v...

Brian's Bench #1: Brian's Bench - 1st day

05-17-2010 03:59 PM by Peterelli | 9 comments »

About three years ago my brother Brian passed away at the age of 44. Brian was the epicenter of our family. He was born with a mental disability but pushed through life challenges like all of us, mostly capable of handing himself on his own. Brian was a people person, the unofficial mayor of the little town we grew up. The kind of person that no matter where we were in the US, Brian would meet a friend. Unfortunately, my father passed about 6 months prior to Brian due to Leukemia. M...
