Saturday in the Woodworking Shop #6: Bandsaws

07-05-2015 08:43 AM by AndyPitts | 4 comments »

Every week (mostly) I make a 10 minute video of what has gone on in the shop, questions, and such from the past week. In this episode I decided to show what I’ve learned about the bandsaw in the 35 years I’ve owned my machine, a 14” Delta. Hope something in here will help you. Andy View on YouTube

Built-In Ironing Board Cabinet

07-04-2015 06:25 PM by Chuck McIntyre | 0 comments »

I thought I would share a project I am currently working on. I put a few pictures up of a miter saw station I built last winter. I had hoped to post a few completed projects by now but a full, down-to-the-studs master bath remodel got in the way. I started the bathroom project the week after Christmas and (mostly) finished it up around the end of April. It occupied pretty much every weekend and many evenings over that four month period. It came out great and I’m very happ...

It Starts With a Workbench #5: Get this thing off the ground... with a vengeance

07-04-2015 06:20 PM by DocTux | 1 comment »

Started off working on my saw horses. I definitely appreciated the advice to build a saw bench, but it was going to be significantly more involved than the extremely basic set of stacking saw horses I did build. Plus it can’t stack, which was a huge detractor. I will likely build one later on, but probably not until I have a functional bench in place. This was the first time I had ever used a handsaw and attempted to do more than a rough cut to fit oversized studs in the back of my truck. It ...

DIY Aluminum Extrusion Fence #2: It's On! now for the hard part...

07-04-2015 04:07 PM by rhybeka | 17 comments »

Sorry all, kinda forgot I’d started a blog on this process! Well, I can give you the short version to catch everybody up. I ordered the parts and they sat in my shop for about six months until I was able to actually open them up and start trying to figure out how they would all end up on my saw. I found out the 3/4” bolts that Hutch used on his design were too short for my saw, and 1” were too long. I trimmed the 1” down to 7/8” and they work pretty well. It&...

Indexing on a Wood Lathe #1: Setting up a 36 and 72 Degree Index

07-04-2015 02:03 PM by Jim Jakosh | 8 comments »

I have a locking index wheel built into my Craftsman lathe and it works well but it is set at every 15 degrees. In an effort to make 5 or 10 equal divisions, I found I needed another index wheel so I decided to add it to back of the lathe chuck. I used aluminum but hardwood or steel would have worked too. I was wondering what I had in my shop that was accurate for setting degrees and pulled the Wixie box(Grizzly version). I mounted a steel bar on the plate for the back of the chuck so the Wix...

Maple/oak project/desk #6: Lid restart,meeting angles...didn't

07-04-2015 12:44 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Another one of “them” days in the shop. Clamps getting flying lessons, because they just kept falling to the floor when I tried to use them. Got the lid angle done ( almost) with an old handplane I had refurbbed up A Stanley No.28. Seemed to be a little lighter than my Stanley #6c…..Left index finger served as a “fence” to keep things going. Tried to match things up with the non-moving part of the lid….even tried hinges, to se what was going on&...

I have a little vise #5: The big cover up

07-04-2015 08:28 AM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

There have been a few days off whilst I’ve been ill with diarrhoea (British spelling). Well the world has stopped falling out of my bottom so some progress has been made. This is the worst of the last images I left you with. However after a second coat of stripper on the stubborn parts and with some help from a hand wire brush and a wire wheel in my hand drill the results are none too shabby. Just in case you are wondering I am really not worried about the name plate and t...
