wooden winch #4: upper frame

08-26-2010 06:56 AM by moshel | 0 comments »

well, its time to make the upper frame. I have rounded the edges of the back brace (as the anchoring rope is going to go around it), screwed it to the lower support (the pull is toward the support, so no need for structural joints) and this is what i got: I figured the pole will have to rotate on some support from belo, so i used pocket screws to add a piece of timber below it: and now all the frame is together! I have used different joints for this: to reduce friction...

Ghosts of Christmas Future #2: too

08-26-2010 05:41 AM by scottb | 2 comments »

YES! More pictures of stuff I can’t show you yet! I had a fairly productive afternoon in the shop. (Once I walked away from the lathe that just doesn’t want to stay on. Quick call to customer service, a new (Free) switch is en route, and I’ll be turning again soon…) In the meantime, I got to tackle lots of milling and project prep… and a few other things I can’t share yet. – Oh the future blog fodder and project posts! But for now, yes, I am ano...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #5: Assembly Complete!

08-26-2010 05:14 AM by Mark Colan | 3 comments »

I’ve had a little time in the morning and evening to work on it, so it has gotten done a bit at a time. Completing the Assembly and Installation I had a few minor stumbling blocks. At one point I was wondering how the Base Mounting Clamp screws were ever going to get tightened. The instructions didn’t seem to say they should be. Eventually I figured out that that came a bit later – with the Base Unit in place. But I had no access to the screws… huh? The in...

Hello All, I have finally added another chapter to the Henry Wood Saga…and I included a photo…with a tiny box in it…so it is doubly great. For those who have been following the Henry Wood Detective Agency, you will be happy to know, that I have finally figured out the rest of the story in my head, so the chapters will come more frequently now. :-) Enjoy.

Work(shop) in Progress #11: Reorganizing Single Car Garage II - Machines are Resting

08-26-2010 04:17 AM by PurpLev | 17 comments »

Hmm… I thought this step would take longer, but after ~3-4 hours of labor and some sweat I was able to do the following: reposition short-lumber rack in a 2 tier (or 4 tier) setup to utilize what was wasted space above it before, also clearing out the space for the milling machines relocate milling machines (jointer, planer, shaper) to newly created space relocate workbench to space left by milling machines relocate drill press, bandsaw, and router table to space left by work...

Freud Blades

08-25-2010 11:56 PM by woodcraftertom | 5 comments »

I have been useing Frued Blades on my table saw—I especially like the Glue Line Rip blade. The only problem with these is getting them sharpened. Freud will not sharpen even their own blades and to send them out is an adventure. I lost two blades to poor sharpening by reputable companies. No one seems to know how to sharpen these and the sales reps have no solution. Does anyone have a suggestion except to use another brand.

Tall Music Cabinet #1: Beginning to Build

08-25-2010 06:42 PM by DrSawdust | 5 comments »

My wife teaches piano lessons in the living room of our home. She has a lot of sheet music that get scattered around. She doesn’t want to put a large filing cabinet in the living room . . . something about being too tacky. I tried my best to explain that the paint is usually dry when you buy them. She just gives me that look and asked me to build her something to match the little cherry bookcase that sits in the living room. Basic box is done . . . finished trim on the sides. It...
