Shopsmith Restoration #2: The Treasure Trove

02-16-2010 10:36 PM by PG_Zac | 6 comments »

As you may know, I have been gifted a Shopsmith but it needs restoration. Well, This afternoon we loaded the Shopsmith and the second “spares” machine in our bakkie (pickup) and drove it 2.5 hours home. Most of the trip was in rain, with almost half of the drive time spent peering through a rain storm worse than I have seen in the last 5 years. At times the visibility was down to about 3 car lengths. I’m not worried about any rust from the trip, because this is how my...

Grizzman, a1jim and David, Awhile back Grizzman was kind enough to send me a few table saw cut off or as some would call it Scrapes, well these wern’t really that small to be scrapes, they were more or less small planks cut down into small boards for Scroll Sawing. Grizzman sent me a verity of wood from Dark Walnut Plywood to Cedar Wood and one I think he refured to as Antique Pine, which all of these pieces will eventualy come in Handy, I’ve yet to decide on what to make wi...

New Presents for me this weekend

02-16-2010 06:56 PM by GaryD | 4 comments »

Took the LOML down to Seabrook Island this past weekend for some time with some friends who own a condo there. One of the things we like to do is go “Antiqueing”, except we all like the junk stores more than the Charleston “Antique” stores. A bit pricey if you know what I mean. Well we found this one shop and as soon as I walked in the door I saw tools!!!!!! Went over and looked at what they had, usual stuff, old saws, very worn, a couple brace and bits, but they ...

Grizzly Tent Sale

02-16-2010 05:26 PM by richgreer | 5 comments »

I see that grizzly has announced a tent sale. These are one day events on a different day at each of their 3 locations. I don’t recall grizzly doing this before, but I may have just missed it. To see dates and locations you can go to the grizzly website. Does anyone recall them doing this in the past and, if so, can you comment on the event? For me, I need to decide if attending this event is worth taking a 5 hour drive. There is a particular machine (a stationary belt s...

Wall Display Case #3: Starting the doors

02-16-2010 06:45 AM by johnnymo | 0 comments »

Well, I got a chance to get into the shop today and was able to make the face frame for the case. I made it just a little proud of the case so I could go back and cut it flush using the router. I also added the shelf for a space for boxed cars below the shelf as well as on the shelf. One other thing I started was the rails and stiles for the doors. I cut these to size and added a rabbit for an 1/8” thick glass that will be inserted into the doors. Will probably head int...

Pensai Table #1: Motivation and Design

02-16-2010 05:50 AM by chscholz | 3 comments »

Like in any project I had hoped that I would have completed this long ago. But since I still feel I am at the very beginning with the project, why not document the process. Maybe someone can get some inspiration or, what is infact more likely, y’ll will have valuable suggestions on how to move this project forward. The idea is simple: SWMBO has become interested in Pensai (or Bonsai if you prefer the Japanese pronunciation). Any self-respecting pensai artist needs a pensai table, and...
