Machinist Toolbox #8: Not Yet Finished, but It's Finished

12-25-2010 06:36 AM by PurpLev | 21 comments »

I mentioned it in the previous post and as I was working on the drawers I had the main carcass take the finish to make use of time. Mahogany much like Oak has large open pores. My finishing goal was more for practice than necessity, but I was aiming for an antique polished look – shiny outside. I knew I would have to fill in those pores if I want an even polished surface. So my plan was to start with a filler coat which I tried to concoct using dewaxed shellac and mahogany sanding sa...

The Basement #9: Incra Router Table - More Progress.....

12-25-2010 03:50 AM by JL7 | 16 comments »

Since the last post, I have added the Wonder Fence to the Ultra Jig, this adds a better (above the table) dust collection option. So now I have a 3” hose into the bottom box and a 2-1/2” hose into the fence, both controlled with separate blast gates. Also added a vent in the dust access door. This is a 2 piece unit that you can remove the outside grate and install a filter or (in my case) some sort of baffle. I need to experiment more to see what kind of airf...

Big Platter project #2: Day 2 - got a lot done!

12-25-2010 12:06 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 8 comments »

Got an early start on the big platter project today. I use a power carver, angle grinder, dremel tool and assorted shop made sanders to work on the foot detail. I have a Trent Bosch carving post that mounts directly to my faceplate and this makes working on the back of the platter much easier – the platter stays attached to the facelplate until I am ready to put it back on the lathe. I have just a little bit to finish up and reverse it so I can work on the front. I have ...

My Panel Cutting Jig #1: Making the Base

12-24-2010 11:21 PM by grub32 | 1 comment »

Well, I saw a post a long time ago by WarMammoth (Panel Cutter) about a portable panel cutter and I had to build one. I wanted mine to be able to work in my workshop and be mounted somewhere so I could raise and lower it when needed. I wouldn’t be using it all that much, but I still deemed it necessary to make one. I have a large lumber storage rack underneath a storage loft that I built last year. So I decided I would mount it under there so I could lift it to the 8 foot ceiling in the...

Building My Work Shop #10: Slotted T Crank Handle for Powermatic Belsaw 12" Molder Planer Drum Sander

12-24-2010 10:21 PM by Crushgroovin | 3 comments »

I am almost done refurbishing my MONSTER 5 HP Powermatic Molder/Planer/Drum Sander. Of all the things to be missing I can’t find the seemingly simplest item. The slotted “T’ crank handle for adjusting the cut thickness. Basically a 5/8” socket with a 1/4” slot through the sides connected to a crank handle. Now I could just take a 5/8” socket and grind a slot in it but that is super chintzy for what is an amazing piece of American built quality product. I ha...
