Thru my first year learning woodworking, i read over and over about table saw sleds and all there benefits, and although i beleived every word of it, never took the time to build one…....untill last weekend and wow….what a difference, and as a newbie any change in quality no matter how minute is noticed as if under a microscope, i chose to make a low cost no flash crosscut sled and am happy i finally made it happen, thanks for listening
I can’t believe that some of you out there have the drive to write so much about your own personal experiances with woodworking. That inspires me to write more and share. I was supposed to use this blog as a way of sharing with my family and friends my woodworking experiances. Well, after 33 days since my last blog entry I realized that hey really don’t care about my woodworking experiances. Well, I shouldn’t say they don’t care; I should say they don’t care ...
One of the first things I really felt I needed up and running is my Dust Collector. This will need to be mobile so those little tiny wheels are not going to cut it when rolling over small debris. A top heavy out of balance machine needs fixing! (Why do they make them like they do…. I’ll never understand.) A good and simple fix: / Using the same ‘wheel’ brackets to keep it sturdy. If I ever wish to revert back to the old rollers… I can. / / N...
My attempt at teaching people to how to tune a miter saw. Would love any input. http://groverwoodworks.blogspot.com/2010/04/miter-saw-tuning.html
I thought it would be fun to do a little blog on the progression of putting my new shop together. Having moved from Ohio with plenty of space to a much smaller area in the Garage in Delaware. I first thought, about 4-5 months ago that it would be no problem putting my shop together. Well, here I am still at work. I’d like to just walk into the shop and build something fun. But I really can’t do that till every thing has a place… So the journey has begun. When we...
Hello All, After taking a break from woodworking last night, I got back at it with vim and no small measure of vigor. I chose to talk about woodworking in tonight’s woodworking blog post, something that has been a bit rare this week. So I made a bit of progress and made it past the point of my previous blunder. Brian I am also testing out Digg. So this is a Digg link. This means you have the ability, if you like the post, to ‘Digg’ it. I am not suggesting that ...
I cut a lot of small parts in my segmented bowl making. Lots of these cuts are made at blade angles other than 0 degrees. Operating with a zero clearance insert is desirable but the variety of blade angles makes using one difficult. I would need a bunch. I use a lot of packing tape to hold small parts while gluing and the other day it occurred to me to stretch a thickness or two of the tape over the blade slot with the blade down and then lift the blade to cut through the tape and leave i...
Finally after 3 years of dealing with moving buckets and planning my schedule around the weather forecasts, I’ll be able to have a new roof installed on both of my old buildings. They started today on the Lyric Theater building which I use main for storage at the moment. It was interesting to see what they uncovered when they pealed back the old roof, which has been in place since 1980. We discovered two old Coke a Cola can’s from 1980 with the LA Olympics logo and a real pull...
im not really shure how many riders are out there but for these guys, any of you think this is a good deal? the MSRP is around 6 to 7.http://www.parkcycle.com/new_vehicle_detail.asp?sid=06888086X4K29K2010J6I11I36JPMQ3489R0&veh=53870&pov=1538674
Got some floors painted, and moved some pictures from storage and hung them up out of the way in the shop. Hoping to get another coat of paint down this weekend, and get started back with finishing the wiring. Once the wiring is done, I can start work on setting up the sawmill.
