table saws

06-10-2009 02:00 AM by bobbo1963 | 5 comments »

I am beginning to set up a small wood shop on limited budget. Thier are two used table saws that cought my eye. One is a King with round guides for the fence, 2 hp 220 motor about 10 – 12 years old. The other is a Rigid, 1 hp larger working surface and I think a better fence. It is about 5 years old.What is more important, the fence and guide or the size of the motor?

Finished the Research and Making a WorkBench! #6: Dead Men may have a tale to tell

06-10-2009 01:34 AM by RichClark | 0 comments »

The dead man for this bench (its an Aide to hold the bottom of your stock to help when your working on it) fits in the front of the table. Ill cover making the rail for it next time but if your going to add it later it will be painful. You need it to float between the lower stretcher and the top.. to do that you mill it with a tongue on the inside and a “track” on the bottom.. the top looks like and “L” and the bottom like a inverted “V”. this lets you r...

Setting Up Shop #1: Introduction

06-09-2009 11:23 PM by stidrvr | 2 comments »

Hello everyone! As my first attempt to contribute to, I figured I’d start of with my shop setup, or lack there of. Curently I reside in the basement, although nice in the winter, the stairs do not play well with others. Some people may think I’m crazy going from a basement shop to a garage shop in Wisconsin. Like I said the stairs are the biggest problem. Right now the garage in question currently holds most of the outdoor stuff. Since the garage is a 3 car, ...

Dovetails Jigs

06-09-2009 10:44 PM by Red Rocks School of Fine Woodworking | 12 comments »

We (the school) don’t do a lot of classes/instruction on dovetail jigs. I’d like to change that and have the ability to do a least a few jig type demonstrations. What works and what doesn’t? Which ones out there are the most popular? I’ve asked a couple of the companies that I know about whether they would be interested in donating one of their jigs to the school (Keller, Akeda, Leigh-already said they can’t), but are there other options/companies I should lo...

Drill Press Table #1: Drill Press Table Build Begins

06-09-2009 07:03 PM by Jon3 | 1 comment »

One weakness I discovered during my Roubo build was the ability to set up nice clean repeat drilling on my drill press, and the difficulty with workholding. I nearly stopped halfway through to build a drill press table, but decided I just didn’t have the room to stop, so I made do with a lot of bits of scrap wood clamped all over the table and to each other. Now that I’ve put the bench into the field, I decided to scratch this particular itch next. I grabbed a piece of spare...

Building an accurate cut-off box in about an hour.

06-09-2009 06:45 PM by Frankie Talarico Jr. | 2 comments »

We end up making these three or four times a year, so I decided to post about them because there are so many uses for them. Our cut-off boxes end up getting mitered in a few different angles and we fianlly have one for 45 degrees and a seperate for 90. It’s a quite useful and versitile tool, a must have in all shops.

Chi Omega Dorm Room #2: Prototype 1

06-09-2009 01:28 PM by Chris Davis | 4 comments »

Like I said in the last blog, I don’t usually make prototypes. But since there will be so many, I wanted to work out as many unforeseen details as I could. I did finish up the first one of the three styles. This is the largest group with 10 beds. After building this first one, I only found a couple thing I wanted to change. First I inset the drawers under the platform about 2” on each side. After getting it set up, I feel it would look better with only a ¾” inset of the drawers. Thi...

Amazing Tools #3: Predator: V8 Chainsaw

06-09-2009 12:06 PM by Gary Fixler | 13 comments »

The Predator – born in Washington state, USA – is a 2-man chainsaw powered by a V8 engine, capable of cutting through a 3’ log in less than a second. All of their videos of this monster are fun, but this recap on an unspecified television program (which seems at the very least sponsored by Prolong Oil) sums things up nicely. My first question – “Who would build such a dangerous beast?” – has been answered. His name is Robert Andrews. My second qu...
