My Shop Projects #3: PVC Shop Wall

05-28-2016 07:57 PM by jesinfla | 0 comments »

If you live in Fl, you know temperature control is less than easy. My small shop is in the garage – there is no A/C or heat in the garage and the cost to insulate for heating and A/C is way beyond what I am willing to spend on a garage! My garage is actually quite large – it’s a 2 car with an additional 8 feet depth which is where my shop is located What I opted to do for the summer (it’s unbearable in there in there in summer, and I usually avoid working in i...

Unisaw Restoration #3: Is 4 tables saws too many?

05-28-2016 05:23 PM by Rapola | 0 comments »

I made some decent progress on the unisaw. With the exception of the yoke/motor bracket assembly, all of the base components are disassembled and I have started stripping the old paint off the cabinet. Hopefully I’ll finish out this long weekend with most of the parts cleaned and primed for final paint. There is a tapered pin holding the yoke/motor bracket together that has thus far thwarted all reasonable attempts with PB blaster and heat. In reading various forums, it seems the ...

Segmented vase #5: Finished turning the outside

05-28-2016 06:06 AM by Julian | 3 comments »

It’s been a few days since I worked on this vase. Today I sanded the inside and then glued the two halves together. When the glue set, I finished turning the outside. Still need to turn (enlarge) the hole on the top. This project was turned almost entirely with my 1/2” bowl gouge. I had some trouble using this tool at first, but with practice I now enjoy how it cuts. The figured maple really looks nice.

Just a short buggy ride north...

05-28-2016 03:32 AM by rhybeka | 5 comments »

it was one of those times that Facebook was actually helpful. I was going north to Amish country with my SO for two days and someone from one of the FB groups I’m in linked a blog post from 2014 I think. It was about a tool place near where we were going to be, along with a few pics. My SO was game to let me check it out, so we did. And boy was I glad! Dan is a very nice guy and took a few moments to make recommendations to this new hand tool worker and chat about how he came across the...

Progress so far

05-28-2016 01:39 AM by Pjonesy | 16 comments »

I started this model Hydraulic crane from a Toys & Joys plan a while ago, but hopefully I am back into it again. In the photo above you can see the main platform, upside down and the wheels and tires in there unfinished state. This photo shows the tires after ebonizing with the rims just sitting in there for effect. This photo is a close up of the ebonized tires with the rims and wheel hubs etc.
