Constructing "Old 99" #4: Sitting on the by-pass.

2156 days ago by MrWoody | 1 comment »

Today is Biker Betty’s birthday. She and her SO are coming to dinner so I only have the morning to work in the shop.I have a box with pieces of left over stock that I used for my other train projects.Looking through it I realized that I didn’t have any 3/8” material that I was going to need soon. I decided that I had better go over the plans again and check that I had enough of the other thicknesses that I’m going to need; I didn’t. I picked a few of the longer pieces of stock that were close...

Tool thoughts #5: First turning on my lathe

2156 days ago by NedB | 6 comments »

I glued a sacrificial block onto a chunk of Mahagony I found in my storage unit the day before yesterday. Last night I broke out the turning tools after cobbling together a temporary lathe stand… I actually used my miter stand: One thing I found, was that I want to lower the lathe a couple more inches, II will need to get shorter bolts, which will help, I wound up putting the 2×8 I bolted the lathe to on top of two 2×4’s, which really raised things up higher than ...

Operation Holtzapffel #10: The top finally comes together!

2156 days ago by Damian Penney | 17 comments »

So it’s been a long time since my last post, had a bit of down time where I went on vacation and did odds and ends but I’d been making slow and steady progress on the top. I can’t believe how much trouble I had gluing a bunch of sticks together :) All my issues stemmed from the fact that I didn’t have a good way of surfacing such long pieces. My 6” jointer just wasn’t up to the task so I faffed around trying to do it other ways. I eventually used a huge ...

Smith #3...I Am not a collector...I am NOT a collector

2157 days ago by Shopsmithtom | 4 comments »

Well, I just acquired Shopsmith # 3, but I’m not a collector. I can justify this..really. I was able to convince my wife and, after all, thats all that really counts, isn’t it?It all started with this kitchen, in my lake cottage, built in the mid 1950’s. I had relegated my old shopsmith to the cottage several years before because, between when I was a kid and learned on it and when I inherited it from my dad, I’d accumulated a bunch of separate tools. I found an ent...

Pen Turners' Swap #2 #7: A hop, skip and a jump...

2157 days ago by itsme_timd | 8 comments »

Hi Everyone, A quick and easy trip for the pen box this time. It made the short jump over to Ryno101’s in no time at all. He sounds extremely excited to dig into this! Funny how all of us (supposed) grown folks get so childish over a box full of sticks. Remember Lincoln Logs??? Those were awesome… Annny-how… the box is in great hands now and I know from the past posts that he’ll enjoy what awaits him when he opens this up. I’m actually starting to get...
