Turning slippery slope #8: Mechanical question about the lathe

02-19-2009 03:15 AM by Betsy | 8 comments »

Got a question about the “play” (for lack of a better description) that exists after you snug down the tail stock. Once it’s snugged down and then you dial in the final little bit with the top crank – how much play should you have? It seems like I have to really crank down onto the tail stock lever to get it to not move the minute I try to do the final crank. I’m not sure if I need to adjust something on the lathe or if I need to be more forceful securing the ...

Router Table #1: Design ideas, need some feedback

02-18-2009 09:44 PM by PurpLev | 43 comments »

OK, so yeah – another blog about a router table, but since I’m going to make one , might as well document it while I go, maybe someone can benefit from this. I’ve had a Rockler router table top + plate + fence which I got when I bought my router (Bosch 2 1/4hp). It had the misfurtune of being on the floor when my basement was flooded a couple of years ago, so that top was ruined. I since have been planning to replace it with a shop-built version, and make a full enclosed ...

Garage Re-Do #12: Dust Collection Decision

02-18-2009 04:07 PM by MyOldGarage | 2 comments »

Ok—after getting numerous comments yesterday (THANKS LJ! – You guys/gals are fantastic BTW!) I decided that a dedicated super sucker – AKA – dust collector was going to be what we needed. Over the weekend I had missed out on a Jet DC1100, and another one . . . I forget what brand it was. We figured we would end up with some deal on Craigslist and sure enough, there popped one up buried in a “wood tools for sale” ad. The price was definitely right...

cabinetry #1: Custom table for boutique women's clothing store

02-18-2009 06:17 AM by JMB | 2 comments »

This is a quick commission I landed last week. The gal asked me to finish it asap so she can open up her new store. Cabinetry is one of those wonderful things which is really easy to do when you’re properly setup, and make a lot of money doing it. I’m not gouging her, but I’m definitely making my minimum hourly on this project. The design is simple enough. Divided storage areas for a reciept printer, wrapping paper, shopping bags, etc. The larger of the two lower left cub...

Shop Expansion #1: The floor is down

02-18-2009 04:04 AM by Les Hastings | 9 comments »

Well I decided to bite the bullet and help out the local economy a little. Currently my shop is 24’ x 38’ with 8’ ceilings. But my work space seams to keep getting smaller and smaller with every piece of equipment that I aquire. So my actual building or assembly area has become quite small. With the ways things have been going lately I’ve struggled with the decision of build or not to build, I just hope I’ve made the right decision. I’m adding a 20’...

Turning slippery slope #7: Took a shallow plunge and actually made something!

02-18-2009 03:30 AM by Betsy | 3 comments »

I decided that I’d take a few smaller baby steps before I tried to make a scoop on my own. So I’ve been working a little more on learning how the tools work and feel, etc. So, yes I made another round thing—- but this one is soooo much better than the last. This one is silky smooth – like glass in fact. I discovered scrapers! I can’t figure out how to turn the flash off on my camera so my pictures are not the best. But drum roll please——ta ...

Router Table in need of switch...need help

02-18-2009 12:27 AM by Al | 11 comments »

I recently built a router table and base. (great fun) However I’m trying to determine the best way to adapt a switch for convenience. A friend suggested an in-line switch but I’m not crazy about that idea. I was thinking of mounting a box with a combination plug outlet/switch to plug the router into and use a replacement cord that ties everything together and plug that into a outlet. What do you think??? Also, do they make after market switches like those on tablesaws? Thanks...
