15 minute dust separator #1: Idea and initial test

10-01-2009 05:31 AM by clasher | 5 comments »

I recently purchased a Dust Deputy to add to my shop vac so I wouldn’t have to spend as much time emptying and cleaning the filter on my vacuum, I’m very happy with it and was considering purchasing another for my father’s workshop when I started wondering whether I could build something cheaper. The Thien Cyclone Separator Lid was just about what I wanted but I couldn’t help imagine I could make something even cheaper and simpler (willing to sacrifice a little effic...

tragedies #2: National Lampoon's Economic Downturn Vacation

10-01-2009 05:02 AM by Gary Fixler | 20 comments »

I work in video games, and it’s seemed this year to be pretty immune to the recession. Kids always want their video games, and when you can’t do much else, like building that addition, or moving to a new place, picking up a game or two to play away the misery is a comforting alternative. Or so we thought. Looks like it’s finally trickled up, or down, or sideways, and as such, we had The Meeting today. While not officially laid off, I’m on ‘forced vacation&#...

Woodworking vacation #18: Day three - dovetails with Frank Klauz

10-01-2009 02:53 AM by Betsy | 5 comments »

It only keeps getting better and better. Today was a very interesting day – not just for the woodworking but for the conversation and friendly interaction. Kelly always has a “reception” on Wednesday evening – just sit around a talk with one another with some wine or beer and some great finger food to share. Tonight was extra special as we had a well known woodworker drop in for some chat. Don Weber dropped by and it was fascinating listening to him talk about his work...

A journey into the workshop. #13: Got the tool stacking system in place.

10-01-2009 02:01 AM by dbhost | 5 comments »

Simply put, I took sheathing grade ply, cut it into 18×24” panels, drilled holes and counterbores for mounting hardware for my bench top tools, and mounted that all up on Rubbermaid adjustable closet shelf hardware… The panels are sized so that I can simply clamp them down to my workbench and get to work, which is awfully handy since that is where the dust collector is plumbed near… Now to dismount the old mounting boards from the tool stands, and get ready to t...

09-30-2009 10:43 PM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Hi All, Since I will have to work late tonight and tomorrow night, I went over on my lunch hour and double checked the runout after cleaning the arbor. Then I checked it with a blade mounted too! Oh, the exciting news is that I ordered a helmet cam from amazon.idiots (I’m only kidding, I love them now). Rechecking the arbor runout after cleaning. Checking the blade runout. Enjoy! ;;J

From plan

09-30-2009 09:09 PM by JohninSD | 6 comments »

I stumbled onto Lumberjocks while looking for inspiration to build a Tablesaw Workstation, something I’ve been meaning to do for 15 years or so. I have a Powermatic 64 Artisan saw and it has been on the original metal stand since I bought it. I added a router table to the right extension wing and put casters under it to supposedly make it easy to move around the shop (garage) but the weight of the router table made it seriously off balance and moving it often was a struggle. So I set o...

We have the pavilion at Hawk Island County Park just off US127 in Lansing. We will eat, show each other what we brought to show if anything, gab, then head out to Ravenwood Farm. I spoke to the owner Kelvin today and he is more than happy to accomadate as many as comes out. The park is reserved for us, I would ask that we pass the hat since it was $50.00 ransom. Rick and I will arrange food and drink if anyone has a preference please let us know. You may want to bundle up as it will probably ...
