Hand tool workbench #6: Tool rail and Leveling

12-26-2010 11:52 PM by brianl | 7 comments »

Since I got the top basically put together, it was time to worry about attaching a tool rail and leveling the bench. I constructed the levelers from four hockey pucks. I drilled a recess in them and epoxied in a bolt by the head. I then drilled a matching recess in each leg and epoxied a nut in each leg. By spinning the hockey puck the bolt will move in and out, helping to level the bench. To add stability to the system I also added a washer to the bolt head and epoxied that to t...

Rebuilding the Bear #2: Christmas Delay

12-26-2010 11:33 PM by Jon McGrath | 2 comments »

Quick update = Christmas and all that comes with it put a damper on shop activity this past week. With that comes all the storage bins, etc. laying around, under, etc the saw and shop – so will get some good present photos during the next week. I did however find a picture of what this saw looked like brand new in 1986 only to find it is not the same, motor on mine mounts low but to the rear of stationary stand, while photos I find always show motor mounted directly underneath the saw, ...

My First Bandsaw Box #12: Step 10: Final Sanding & Applying a Finish to Your Box

12-26-2010 09:08 PM by Jonathan | 2 comments »

This is it, the moment has finally come to put the finishing touches and finish on your bandsaw box!(I will try to keep this blog post concise as I had a pretty bad tablesaw accident on December 23rd, trying to finish a couple of Christmas gifts. 3-fingers were cut, but all 3-fingers are still there and luckily didn’t appear to do long term damage, even though I now have 28-stitches in them. Needless to say, typing is slow-going.) If you haven’t done any sanding yet, now is the...

xmas is over

Well I didn’t finish much. My appendix acted up and I spent 3 days back and forth to the hospital before christmas. Luckily I got out on the 23rd and though I was in great pain I was able to finish the sewing of the bedding for the doll cradles and the wife painted them for me. Of course she spent the whole time worrying that she wasn’t doing a good enough job. I had to keep reminding her that they are toys and don’t have to be perfect. So the cradles got finished. I ...
