A Unique Leg Leveler Idea

02-27-2009 08:11 AM by David | 8 comments »

My most recent project, a fine-art print bin made of wild Oregon cherry, has a set of small leg levelers on the back legs to accommodate an uneven floor. The system uses a deeply imbedded 10-24 brass threaded insert and a long 10-24 allen-head cap screw tipped with a vinyl thread protector. If some stability is needed for an uneven floor it is a simple matter of turning the head of the cap screw. The vinyl tip protects the floor from scratches. Hope this provides some inspiration for a leg le...

shop upgrades #3: Motor upgrade for the bandsaw

02-27-2009 03:01 AM by Julian | 4 comments »

I just picked up a 1 1/2 hp 1740 rpm motor from a friend today for $30. It’s a VERY clean old Doerr brand motor made in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. After rewiring it to run in reverse, I installed it into my rigid 14” bandsaw that has a 6” riserblock, and many carter upgrades. Let me say that the saw is a totally different beast now! With the underpowered stock 3/4 HP motor, a very slow feed rate was needed to resaw tall stock. Now it breezes through 10” rock maple withou...

Delta Homecraft Table Saw

02-26-2009 08:13 PM by Pie | 3 comments »

A buddy of mine gave me this saw cuz he bought a brand new Jet for about $1k. He didn’t want this one so I went over his house and he showed it to me. Yup, it was old and heavy like he said but and I couldn’t wait to take it home to try it out. I own a Hitachi Job site saw and it work good for the price but this old one works better. It has a pulley and the motor starts and stops pretty quick. I need to update the vac port but other than that it is a nice find for free.

Garage Overhead Cabinets #1: Planning Makes Perfect?

02-26-2009 05:11 PM by MyOldGarage | 8 comments »

Ok—as I learned on the garbage can holder, I think I need a bit more planning on my next project. I’ve in the past at least drawn out some sketches and worked from that . . . which is what I did to a certain degree on the trash holder but I didn’t flesh out all the details until I was in (over my head) on the project. Norm Abram I’m not. So on to the next thing which will be some overhead cabinets for in the garage. I’ve always wanted something above the wo...

random #2: Just realized exactly how tiny my shop is :(

02-26-2009 02:08 PM by Gary Fixler | 4 comments »

I finally ran the numbers. My shop is a 1-car rental garage in cramped, suburban LA. Making things extra strange is that there is a 6’ tall cinder block wall running down one side of the property that terminates right at the corner of my garage. It actually buts into it, overlapping the wall by the width of the cinder blocks. The fence around the back of the property passes about 4’ behind the garage, giving me a little tree-covered (Hollywood Junipers and Ficus benjamina) area I ...
