24" Bandsaw #1: To sell or re-motor - calling all electrical motor buffs

01-28-2009 06:32 AM by tooldad | 6 comments »

I had the opportunity to get a 24” bandsaw that supposedly works for $100. It appears to be 30 years old and in good physical shape. My stepgrandfather, Ernie knows a guy that knows a guy, etc. Anyways he said something to me at Thanksgiving and he told me he would have bought it but he couldn’t use it in his garage. I asked him why, is it 220? He said it was 3 phase. I replied that we have 3 phase at school and want a large bandsaw. So he called the guy back and said I woul...

Workbench Buildup #1: Desmond-Stephan Vise Restoration

01-28-2009 01:20 AM by justsawin | 5 comments »

Not exactly a woodworking project, but will parlay into a workbench project to come. This is an old vise I got from my dad’s shop. I don’t know too much about it, but it says Desmond-Stephan Mfg Co. on the left side and Urbana, Ohio on the right. I restored it to useable condition and will mount it on my new workbench after building it. Before Restoration. A rusted mess! I used an “Electrolytic Rust Removal” process to remove the bulk of the rust. I couldn...

Hide Glue #2: Hide Glue Primer

01-28-2009 01:03 AM by David | 15 comments »

I am interested in hide glue for a number of reasons. The first of which is the “romance” of using a traditional method that has its foundations as far back as Ancient Egypt and the cabinet shops of Colonial America.

I also like the reversibility of hide glue and the fact that it accepts stain and finish without leaving telltale glue marks like that pesky spot of PVA ...

Spice Box #3: Deadline quickly approaching, running outta time

01-27-2009 10:07 PM by MedicKen | 0 comments »

Well as the time approaches for the contest end I find myself scrambling to get things completed. Due to financial constraints and the holidays I am doing my best to have it completed by the end of the month. The box is almost complete, all the moulding, bracket feet have been machined and attached and all the drawers are constructed and dry fit. All that is left are the drawer bottoms, fitting the door, final sanding, finishing and installing hardware. I am working most of the remaining days...
