Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #17: Took the Unisaw home today

10-04-2009 06:56 AM by Bothus | 4 comments »

I decided to take the Unisaw home today since it was disassembled and reassemble it there. The only problem is I have no room in the garage. I may not get to work on my project as often because just getting to it will be a project. First I had to move every in my half of the garage out to the driveway. I keep everything mobile. I got my work bench cleaned off. I set my Unisaw motor there since changing the bearings will be my next project. I had to temporarily assemble the saw ...

Blockfront dresser4

10-04-2009 03:10 AM by TimF | 1 comment »

Hello again all. I was able to actually get some work done on the dresser. In my last post I had a problem with the blades being even. The problem was easy to correct. I just switch the front and back. I was able to do this because I hadn’t cut the rabbet in the back part of the sides. I did cut some small pieces to fill in the mistake. And this is how it looks now. ! ! Then cut the mortises for the drawer supports ! ! The next step was easy. Make a half template for the b...

Sawstop Trunnion System

10-04-2009 01:19 AM by Mike | 1 comment »

I know a lot of you guys out there have the SS. I am the kind of person that would prefer a one piece trunnion system. I noticed that they made a lot of change between the Industrial and the Proffessional Series in their Cabinet saw line-up. I am looking at both of the diagrams from the manuals and the Industrial appears to that much stronger, more like the Unisaw. Any of your feedback on the trunnin system would help. Thanks, Mike

Woodworking vacation #20: Day 5 - dovetails with Frank Klausz

10-04-2009 01:06 AM by Betsy | 7 comments »

Made it home safe and sound. Always great to get away and have a good vacation – but also so very nice to be home. The last day in class was such a good time. Someone asked Frank to talk a bit about his life in Hungary and his ventures to the US. Frank essentially gave us a two hour talk on history and it’s a talk I very much enjoyed. Frank is a genuinely nice man who has a lot to teach besides woodworking. He spoke in great detail about his apprenticeship and how it worked in Hungary, h...
