Fighting Dust #4: I was inspired

02-22-2011 03:56 AM by ChunkyC | 5 comments »

Well maybe motivation instead of inspiration is more accurate. I took a could days of much need vacation and I spent today tinkering in the shop all day and reading LJ. I got to Neil’s blog, NBeener, and re-read his stove-pipe mod for his HF DC. It motivated me to start sealing some of my leaks. I said some! I sealed all around the dust collector using foil tape after wiping it down with a rag and mineral spirits. The secrete is to use small pieces and just do small areas ...

well its all assembled except for the wheels which need tires and crowning. All there except for the before and after pictures :) since not all done yet. I did screw up and paint the surfaces between the male and female brackets for tilting the table so I need to go back and re-visit that since adjusting the table tilt is pretty “sticky”.. 3 out of the 4 JB weld repairs at the corners of the wheel covers turned out pretty good.The one on the right side of the upper wheel is ...

Rush Seated Bench #1: Greene & Greene Detail on Legs

02-22-2011 12:24 AM by woodworksbyjohn | 5 comments »

Here is a shot of the finished detail on the legs, ready for final planing and refinement. I’ll do that after the mortises are cut for the stretchers. I changed things up a bit and decided to taper the inside of the legs at the front and back but left the sides square. Well, go to something different and it complicates things a little. I made the jig somewhat like shown in Darrell Pearts book. For the straight side of the legs it was pretty simple. Rather than mess with ...

Re-Uses #1: Rubber sheet

02-21-2011 07:56 PM by ChunkyC | 5 comments »

I was watching one of Marcs videos the other day and he was using his chop saw to cut the end off of a board. The video was a very tight shot of the saw, I assume it’s a Festol. What I saw was that his saw had a factory rubber “boot” of sorts that was behind the blade used to direct the dust up and into the waiting dust extraction system. The rubber was soft enough to easily bend and yet had a memory to it so that it returned to it’s normal self. ..We use rubber s...
