Guitar Build Progress Report #5: Update for 8-29-10

08-29-2010 09:38 PM by knotscott | 2 comments »

Here’s the latest for 8/29/10 (the 5th entry in this series): The “final” clear coat has been applied (a couple of times! ...hopefully this is the last). The neck is drilled and the tuners are mounted. The pickups are mounted to their trim rings, and the final electronics scheme is worked out. From here it’s a matter of waiting for the lacquer to cure and deciding how much rubbing out I want to do…the results from the spray can are glossy and smooth in most pl...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #8: Problem Solved! Phase I Complete: Success!

08-29-2010 09:21 PM by Mark Colan | 2 comments »

The Problem In installment 6, I noticed that the microadjuster knob did not work until I had turned it 50 clicks or so in the same direction, and then it did not work in the other direction until I turned it 50 clicks. I diagnosed the problem as screws in the LS Positioner that should have been tightened during manufacture, but were not. I also determined that I did not want to attempt to fix it until I got advice from Incra tech support. (See earlier post for more details.) I sent a...

Revamping my Delta Contractor Saw #7: Re-installing the Delta Uniguard

08-29-2010 08:59 PM by Mark Colan | 0 comments »

Installing a Delta Uniguard onto a saw with Incra Fence As I said in the first installment, I have set a requirement that I can make the Incra Fence co-exist with the Uniguard, such that they can work together. The problem to be solved is that both the Uniguard and the Fence expect to use the same mounting holds on the cast-iron saw table in back. Mark Mueller from Incra said that he had heard of customers that had accomplished this by flipping the Uniguard tube mounting bracket upside...

Let's Build a Magazine Case

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by Bob Simmons | 5 comments »

As featured in the Let’s Build series... Many of woodworkers receive woodworking magazine subscriptions in the mail each month and as the time goes by these magazines accumulate. These magazines are a great source for reference and also inspiration so it is nice to have them protected and organized so that we can easily access the information. Now, a woodworker can simply purchase a magazine case from the publisher or from a local discount store and be done with it. However, since...

Job Contracts #2: Part 2 - Always get in writing

08-29-2010 05:38 PM by falegniam | 5 comments »

Hello LJ members,The motion to reconsider judgment did not go well. I lost again. This makes twice for the same case that should been settled with just a mediator. I had help with the preparation for the motion to reconsider the judgment, still results in a lose. The person that the court uses for small claims is an unqualified individual to say the least. I went to some lengths to prepare a well thought out defense, which she didn’t even read. I can only come to the conclusion that thi...

Bookcase and Wall entertainment unit #4: Bookcase assembly

08-29-2010 05:31 PM by rando1 | 5 comments »

The later part of the week brought us to the point of pulling together all the pieces and assembling the base bookcase units. All the cutting and fitting together and we have a really cool unit coming together. The face frame got a detailed edge and the top of the unit, we will try to get a better picture on the next update. We did not get too much more done the end of the week, because we took Thursday and Friday and went to Atlanta for the IWF conference. Wow the show had lots of gr...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #87: "The Grizz"

08-29-2010 12:58 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I am still kind of slow today. It is funny how you go away for only a day and it takes you several to catch up again. I am not complaining though. It is good to be missed. Not only by the cats, but also by friends and others. It was funny but when I left on Friday morning, there was one email in my mail box. I was totally caught up on correspondence and getting back to people that I needed to talk to and all. When I got home, there were over 40 things there for me. About half of it was...

Milling Weekend LJ event - Murchison, NZ #4: Day #2 photos

08-29-2010 11:33 AM by daltxguy | 3 comments »

Yesterday rain moved in late in the day and rained all night but cleared in the morning. Unfortunately that left the steep track to the beech forest impassable due to clay mud, despite serious mud chains on the 4wd. The plan was adjusted to do a local walk to view some intact native lowland forests. We visited some massive examples of Kahitakea, Matai, Miro, Red beech and silver beech. Then it was off for a leisurely hot brown beverage at the local River’s cafe before going back to...
