New Grizzly G0690 or Used '01 Delta Unisaw? Opinions wanted!

11-18-2009 05:16 AM by Brad_Nailor | 21 comments »

OK..I was about to order (literally, I was about to order the saw) my Grizzly G0690 when I see an add on Craigslist for a 2001 Delta unisaw with a 52” real Beismeyer fence, table board and legs and a Delta mobile base. I have been emailing with the seller and he assures me that the saw is like brand new..he bought it new in ‘01 and used it rarely for home improvement projects and some cabinet making. The saw is dialed in perfect and the table is dead runout on the arbor&...

Kite Camera Reel #4: Almost Done!

11-18-2009 04:21 AM by CaptainSkully | 1 comment »

I was able to squeeze another day in the shop. We started out by finishing up the parallel linkage with the barrel bolts we got from the hardware store. Then we fabricated the Brooxe hanger and the camera enclosure mount. Finally, it was time for the handles. ^ Handles installed on the reel assembly ^ Camera enclosure mounted on the bottom of the parallel linkage ^ Brooxe hanger showing how kite string winds around the “mushrooms” in the top member of the parallel l...

Getting started

11-18-2009 01:10 AM by Roostermiester | 4 comments »

OK, so I’m not much of a social networker, but so far I like this site for it’s specific focus (home at last, maybe). I’ve posted some of my older projects and I need to get some pics done for my newer ones (since we moved to Colorado). There is still quite a few of them on the to do list as well. We are finishing up a renovation (not sure if that’s accurate) project at our house and there are some more built-ins and what not that will need to be made. Once again, ...

Hand Tool Journey #7: Bench Almost Complete

11-17-2009 11:28 PM by Blake | 15 comments »

More bench progress… Here is the “tail” vice mortised into the end of the bench. You can also see how the underside of the bench looks with all the different widths I used: Clamping on the wider “apron” pieces front and back: And adding the end aprons with dowels: As you can see I painted the 4×6 fir base black: I leveled the table with shims under the feet and then bolted the legs to the floor: And then the...

11-17-2009 10:56 PM by Jim Bertelson | 4 comments »

What follows is a true story,……Tammy arrived without a motor……..and we found it…..and the rest is true also, so help me SAWDUST ………… Of all the joyous sounds of the shop, there is none more beloved than Tammy TableSaw’s wonderful whine. She is a proud Contractor’s Saw, born to serve, born to create, born from love. When Tammy starts a whining, all the other tools become alert, knowing that they too will soon join in the song. The whine of the saw is the herald of creation, the shop will b...

Out of commission for a few days

11-17-2009 10:25 PM by Rustic | 19 comments »

Hey Guys and Gals Just found out that I will be out of commission for a few days next week. I am having a laser procedure done on my left eye. Last week at a routine eye appointment they found a “freckle” on my left eye. There is a blood vessel growing from that freckle and is causing distorted vision. The name of this is called ocular histoplasmosis.They are going to remove the blood vessel. It will not restore my vision to normal. It will only stop it from growing worse. T...

As it were. SteveMI. Stopped by to say hi today much to my surprise and pleasure. We talked like old friends for 2 hours before he had to hit the road. He had stopped back at Raven Farm to do some more shopping, without me, of course. He promised next time to include me. We had a great time and he got to see my messy shop first hand. Will I take the messy shop record? Who knows. We did talk about another Michigan get together maybe in January or Febuary. What do the rest of you Michiganians t...

Hand Tool Journey #6: Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack

11-17-2009 09:13 AM by Blake | 15 comments »

Stanley No. 62 Low Angle Jack Plane Some of the modern high end hand tool manufacturers have been marketing “low angle jack planes” for years now like it is something nobody has ever thought of before. I mean, I had never heard of a low angle jack before I started reading reviews on Lie Nielson and Veritas versions in Popular Woodworking Magazine. Veritas Low Angle Jack Plane: And of course we all know that Stanley, the most famous maker of quality hand tools has SERI...
