Does anyone have this paticular Jointer I need to ask a couple of question about the knives. Deta sent me some new knives but they stick out 1/4” into the rabbit slot. I double and triple checked and they are the correct part number for this machine. Here are some pictures so you can see for yourself. Thanks if anyone can help.I have been without a jointer now going on four months. The Buffet that I was building will be rotten by the time I get back to it. And I do certainly do miss my ...

Woodworkers Just Gotta Be Bad People Sometimes....

10-17-2010 03:44 PM by poopiekat | 15 comments »

As I reminisce over projects, jobs, and situations I’ve endured over the decades, there has often been a lot of sleepless nights I’ve endured. There are just too many mean people out there, and it’s actually naive to think that a common identity as woodworking brothers and sisters suggests any kind of implicit harmony among us.I was well acquainted with hands-on woodworking by the time I entered ‘Practical Arts’ program at my junior high. My projects often got ...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #136: Full Day at the Saw

10-17-2010 01:20 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 3 comments »

Today will certainly be a full day. Right now it is quiet, but as soon as the hour is decent, I need to start working on my two trays to cut out. I had a good day yesterday. We went to our friend’s house on the little lake and the colors were just amazing. Even though it was raining and the skies were gray most of the day, it didn’t take away from the incredible colors of the trees. It is that rare time when you can see all the colors at once – red, orange, gold and green...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #11: The weekend's progress such that it is...

10-17-2010 07:26 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Well, so far the weekend has been slowly productive. LOML has other ideas for what I should be doing, so I am squeezing what shop time in that I can around lawn and garden work, sanding drywall, and coding a web site… I have been able to at least get SOME work done… Thus far I have… Pulled the lawn and garden rack that is in the way, relocated the rolling mechanics tool box, and the Thien Cyclone. I have yanked the 4” port off the Thien and installed the 5”...

Who needs a sandblaster, Not me.....

10-17-2010 06:14 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 6 comments »

Well guys, with the motor back in one piece (and running) I found myself ready to move on to the casing for the actual saw. So, with my el-crapo (Skil) finishing sander and some 100 grit sandpaper, I went to town removing old paint and rust from the saw. I had to be super careful not to destroy the badges. So there’s the saw after a good cleaning and sanding, and here it is with primer. I did make a boo boo, and tried to sand out a run with 100 grit (stupid, stupid, stup...

Having a nice weekend...

10-17-2010 06:09 AM by Rick Boyett | 0 comments »

Saturdays can be tricky for me. I want to work in my shop. My wife wants us to go out somewhere… anywhere. Today we struck a happy medium. I took her out shopping for baby stuff (we’re working on an adoption) and she didn’t sigh even once when I pulled the car into the Woodcraft in Addison.. I had my #5 Bailey with me so I could check out a Hock blade but they didn’t have any in stock. I ended up buying a Pinnacle blade by IBC. I also bought a set of Groz engi...

Hand Tools #1: My New/Old 32" Jointer Plane

10-17-2010 05:25 AM by MikeInPenetanguishene | 7 comments »

Picked up this 32” Jointer Plane at an antique store sale today. Looks in great shape, 2.5” iron is a bit nicked but was quite sharp. No marking on the plane itself, but has “Spear & Jackson” stamped on the iron. Looks original to the plane. I’m hoping I’ll be able to use it after a little tune up. Can anyone tell me anything more about this style of plane? There’s a little wooden ‘button’ or something on the top near the front...

The Trebuchet Project #2: Bucket And Swing Arm

10-17-2010 04:33 AM by William | 1 comment »

Well, I did find my steel rod today for the swing arm axles. The two axles are held in place with washers and cotter pins. I’m glad I bought extra length of rod. The trick is to make sure you have the washers sandwiched on each side of the swing arm and on the insides of the frame and bucket with cotter pins as tight as possible. If it is not tight enough, there will be just enough wobble to allow the bucket to hit parts of the frame while it makes its swing. I realized this quickly thr...

Jet 6" JJ6 Jointer #5: finally its all in one piece and ready for making saw dust

10-17-2010 04:30 AM by Camper | 8 comments »

After all the dust settled with the screws, I was able to set the jointer knives and all seems to be working great. Ironically the first pieces I jointed are for a mobile base for the jointer which I will describe in a different blog. Before it went back on the stand, I built a new wooden platform for it and tossed the old one out. I also glued pieces of rubber (the rubber is for making custom gaskets that I had on hand) figuring it would reduce vibration. i am not sure if it helps but it ...

Figured Maple and Walnut Coffee Table #2: 2nd weekend

10-17-2010 04:15 AM by bohnsai | 0 comments »

So last week I left off getting a straight edge on all my boards to start out with. The jig I use for the table saw is below. I got all the boards cut last weekend but just didn’t get around to updating the blog until today. So it figures that while thinking about this project during the week, I decided to change it a bit. It’ll likely go through about half a dozen design revisions before I’m done with it :-) Step Three: Panel Glue Ups! I decided I was going ...
