Accu-Head Helical Head Replacement #2: Cold weather + Tight Bearings = fun

01-15-2010 02:07 AM by mckenziedrums | 0 comments »

I spent 2 hours today trying to bang out the bearings on the old cutter head… What should have been a relatively easy install resulted in me having to nearly tear apart the entire planer so that I could get a punch to the far side of the head and start beating the crap out of the bearing. The good news is that finally the bearing started to move and I was able to remove the old cutter head. The bad news is that I sheered off the locking mechanism trying to remove the bolt that holds ...

Teenage woodworkers

01-15-2010 01:21 AM by zlatanv | 6 comments »

Just saw an honorable mention to some teenage wood workers in Wood Mag, March 2010, fellow LJs, Kosta Viennas, 14, and Denis Rezendes, 16. Keep up the good work!! Just a note to Kosta, saw your home profile nice to see you take a new road from your friends you lost, best of luck to ya! Even if not that much scares you and thats why you don’t like safety glasses, it’s still nice to be able to get older and continue woodworking with both eyes and all 10 fingers. Good luck!!

DC success!

01-15-2010 12:45 AM by tbreland | 7 comments »

It’s taken just about forever, but I just used my tablesaw indoors, and my 1hp Harbor Freight mini and a Loxes bucket cyclone kept the air FREE of floaties. I’m sure they’re still there somewhere, and I know the thing needs a good bit of snigging up, but I’m just so glad I can now actually work on stuff while not outside. It really did seem like I was cursed for a while. There are more adapter on that thing than I can count. It’s like there was no way to just...

Apartment Projects #5: A sort of Trestle/Skid/Box/Tray? type of thing...

01-14-2010 11:51 PM by littlecope | 6 comments »

Ordinarily, in my “Apartment Projects” entries, I showed you things that I’ve done over the course of the years I’ve lived here. This one is a small work in progress. The Problem: I have two steamer trunks that were given to me by my Dad about five years ago. They came from his Parent’s house and belonged to his Grandmother; the very trunks she used when she came to America back in the late teens.One has a curved topThe other a flat topIt’s my understanding...

Learning Something: Workbench #1: The Planning

01-14-2010 11:31 PM by John Steffen | 3 comments »

Planning a project is often my favorite part (aside the finished product). Thus there will probably be many many more plans/drawings on here than work updates. However, this project is going to be seen through to completion as I need a workbench in my shop for future projects I probably won’t finish. I’ve scoured books, magazines, and the internet to come up with a good vision of what I think I need in my bench. My current shop is 10’x20’ so space is at a p...

This is what I woke up to yesterday .Here was the next thing I saw This was next in my sight. Things have not been going all that well. First I had a water pipe burst next to the house. It took forever to fix it because it was never above 19F that day. Keeping the pipe and glue as a warm temp so the glue would work was real fun. That night, a pipe burst in the shop Probably a little hard to see but, the vertical pipe blew off the horizontal pipe on the floor and, the horiz...

Dovetail Pen Turning #4: Success!!

01-14-2010 07:14 PM by SNSpencer | 4 comments »

Dovetail Pen Progress Success!! It took a few more tries but I finally have a set of pen blanks worth of being assembled into a final writing instrument. Some more issues that I have run into along the way are: Working with Padauk and CA glue – I found that when I was applying the CA glue to the blanks to stabilize the chipout that the glue would pick up the color from the Padauk. This in effect became a “stain” that would penetrate the Maple and start to turn it pink. I solved this ...
