Arson, Officer?

05-13-2010 09:04 AM by degoose | 13 comments »

I have taken a leaf out of Todd A. Clippinger's book… If you want to be a professional, have a professional outlook.. and a professional’s work space.. etc… After cleaning the main workshop.. I looked out and felt that the woodstore needed to be made more accessible … so I spent the day re-arranging all the timber and … sorry all… burning all the bits and pieces that I did not think I would use..I could have given some of it away but the cost of shipping...

Tool Gloat #1: I can't help but brag - Delta Band Saw

05-13-2010 06:02 AM by docholladay | 2 comments »

I saw an add for some older band saws advertised on Craig’s list. A millwork shop had upgraded to an 18” band saw and they had 2 14” saws they were selling. They had listed a Powermatic and a Delta. When I got there this afternoon, someone had already purchased the Powermatic. However, I discovered that the Delta was an older Delta that is in very good condition. It is a 1 HP with enclosed base. Runs smooth. It needs a little bit of tuning and cleaning, but otherwise ...

One handed turning.

05-13-2010 05:27 AM by whiskeyturner | 4 comments »

Two days ago I broke my wrist. . . .40 years old and my first brake, even the kids are making fun of me ! I’ve been trying for so long to get some time off to get in the shed and make some shavings. . . Now i have at least 6 weeks but with a broken left hand, luckily i’m right handed. I’m sure with in that 6 weeks I can teach my self to turn one handed or at least with minimal top tool support anyway. So i’m hoping to post some pic’s in the next few weeks of some...

Day long joiner tuning... Ugh!

05-12-2010 09:21 PM by EPJartisan | 7 comments »

Yesterday I jumped on the joiner for a task of running about 30ct ~ 42”L ~ 1/8”w boards. Should have been a simple job maybe an hour or so. NOPE. Last week one of shop users said he could not get his board to not have a 1/64” curve.. I ran the single board for him, and it turned out perfect and we overviewed using the joiner in detail, so I thought nothing more about it. So, here I am, having a wonderful and productive day, but the first board I ran was not flat.. I tried...

Re-Jappaning an old friend - No. 80 scraper

05-12-2010 08:42 PM by ratchet | 5 comments »

Been using this old No. 80 for a long time and it definitely appeared to have seen better days. As this tool is not a collectors item I decided it was time to refurb an olde friend. Used electrolysis to clean it up. Made up a solution of Japan mix using Asphaltum in a glass jar. Waited about a week – shaking a couple of times each day for it to dissolve/go completely in solution. Painted a couple of light coats of the solution on the no. 80, and then it went through a baki...

Just for Fun... #14: An Adventure in Bandsawing...

05-12-2010 08:02 PM by littlecope | 20 comments »

Last night, after dinner, I went out in my Parent’s yard to have a smoke, on one of my favorite benches in the world…It’s an old-timer I found at the dump about 40 years ago… I brought it home, and my Dad put new slats on it to replace the old broken ones… a fresh coat of paint and it’s been “in-service” for many years…You may ask, “What does that have to do with Band Sawing?!” Well, I’m glad you asked!!I looked up from m...
