Scrolling with Asthma #2: Follow up Number 1

01-21-2015 08:18 PM by jerrells | 2 comments »

So I had a visit with my breathing Doctor today. The simple fact is I have asthma and that can’t be fixed. Controlled is another matter. First you must know what are the “triggers: that set you off”. At this time I am not sure but will have allergy test later. The real issue is that what might make you cough or sneeze might send me to ER. It depends on many factors. In the short term, if I am in the shop I MUST have on dusk masks and the dust filters MUST be on. Like most...

Powermatic 1500 bandsaw

01-21-2015 07:54 PM by Bill1933 | 0 comments »

I recently purchased a PM1500 Powermatic Bandsaw. I set it up and everything was working fine. A couple of weeks later, I went to use it on a project and it wouldn’t turn on or start. I ck’d the manual and everything ck’s out. This machine has a magnet that controls the on switch that is supposedly for safety. I think this is my problem. I want to rewire the machine and bypass this feature which looks pretty straightforward from the wiring diagram in the manual. No one exce...

Dave's Workshop #9: My Multipurpose Router Station

01-21-2015 05:57 PM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

When I built the router table as an extension of my table saw I had in mind using it as more than a router station. For starters it allows me to make wider rips on my table saw, but it does a few more things and I’m not done yet. [Above and below] Like others of its brethren, my router station can be used with or without the fence. I have a vacuum port set in the fence as well as one for the cabinet depending on which one I think will work best. [Below] The router is mount...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1480: If First You Don't Succeed . . .

01-21-2015 01:21 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 8 comments »

I always like sharing my triumphs here on the blog. It feels great to accomplish something positive and be able to share it with you all, my readers. But sometimes when I do something, it doesn't work out exactly as I have planned. (I know! Hard to believe, right???) I never mind telling you all about those times either though because I really want people to understand that being successful does NOT mean having everything work out perfectly every time. Anyone who tells you different is ly...

Woodworking Tips and Resources #1: Jobsite vs Entry fullsize table saw - A detailed analysis

01-21-2015 03:45 AM by paxorion | 9 comments »

The table saw is my most used tool for woodworking. Given it’s utility in woodworking, it is arguably the tool that shouldn’t be skimped out on. Yet over the years, the question of “which table saw is right for me” question is posted time and time again by new woodworkers, with a price point that is fixed to a specific niche, between a high-end jobsite saw and the entry level full-sized (contractor/hybrid) table saws (as of the date of this post, somewhere between $5...

OK, The French Veneer (at last) #13: 21st Century Painting in Wood

01-21-2015 01:15 AM by shipwright | 11 comments »

Up until now I had been laying out my painting in wood layers by hand using lines that extended beyond the edges of the veneer area and after placing the veneer on the drawing, redrawing them on it to indicate the cut out areas. This is basically the “old way” and it works very well …. most of the time. A drawing that has been used for this sort of layout looks like this. As this one was going to be large and somewhat complex, I decided to try another way. I retrace a...

12-foot oak library trestle table as bench?

01-21-2015 12:31 AM by MorganTS | 5 comments »

Scholars: When my wife and I were kids we picked up a lovely, battered 12-foot solid oak library trestle table from Duke Salvage for a couple hundred bucks. Two-inch top. It was our office table for years as we dragged it around with us, paying piano rate to move it. The top weighs, I dunno, 80,000 pounds. For the last 15 years it has been in our garage as occasional project table and world’s heaviest shelf. So my kids bought me a table saw and I am now a newly, hopelessly addict...
