Saving A Jet JWP-15CS From Dump #5: electrolysis tub version 2.0 and Jet Motor test

03-23-2015 04:30 AM by Holbs | 4 comments »

Good weekend results. The Jet 3HP motor spins freely with no internal noise nor smoke, just the outside casing needs alot of TLC. Probably will inquire about changing out bearing to see the $$$ damage.Also, updated my electrolysis tank a little. Used plastic 3/4” brackets to keep the 12” rebar rods in place but yet loose enough to pull out when needed for the smaller tank. Bought rebar tie wire as that’s the closest thing to steel I could find at Lowe’s, because of...

Misc. Shop Stuff #52: How to Stretch Table Legs

03-23-2015 03:52 AM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 11 comments »

1. Start with a pile of legs that are each a couple of inches short. 2. Pull the broken wheels from the bottom of the legs. It’s the hole from those wheels that lead to the fix. 3. Cut a ‘fifth leg’ into 3” lengths. Those are doweled and glued to the squared bottoms. 4. When the glue is set, head to the lathe. 5. Some sanding, then cut excess off before a little rasp work and sanding finishes the process. These legs w...

Southern Yellow Pine Work Surface (workbench) #21: Finishing Up Saw Bench/Saw Horse No. 2

03-23-2015 02:39 AM by ruddhess | 0 comments »

Making up a bunch of oak dowel pegs. I use my old Delta belt/disc sander to clean-up the splinters and chamfer the ends of the dowels. Those oak splinters are a big pain! Oak dowels come in all colors! I keep the sets together and use them on the same joints as much as possible. Second upright on Saw Bench/Saw Horse No. 2 was out of square by 1/4” (diagonal measurements) – after removing the 48” pipe clamps, this is the resulting diagonal measurements: I c...

Split Top Roubo Bench Build #10: Mounting the Criss-Cross

03-23-2015 01:05 AM by ic3ss | 4 comments »

Yesterday I picked up a 1 – 1/4” forester bit and a 3/8” x 10” long brad point bit at Woodcraft. The forstner bit is for drilling the hole through the chop and leg for the leg vise. The bit is too short to make it all of the way through the leg so I also need to get a forstner bit extension. The 3/8” bit is for the pins that hang the Criss-Cross on the chop and leg. The chop is 9” wide so this was barely able to make it through. I didn’t want to hassl...

Another 52 Weeks #11: I missed another week. But prepping for camp!

03-23-2015 01:05 AM by clieb91 | 1 comment »

Well I missed another week of posting this time though it was not due to pleasure. My aunt passed on Monday and I was with my Uncle most of this week. She has had kidney problems for several years now and 2 weeks ago things started to get bad. I visited last weekend and on Sunday she was having a good day. By Monday morning everything had changed though. My Uncle is doing as well as can be expected. While I spent a large portion of the week away from work and my shop I did some brain storm...

Chair One #5: This is why they made machines...

03-23-2015 12:36 AM by siavosh | 6 comments »

Glad to say after two sundays, and three weeknights, I’m done rip sawing the main pieces of the chair. By far these were some of the longest rip cuts I’ve ever done, one was almost five feet long. It was intimidating at first, but after deciding that cheating is ok, I scored the lines with a marking knife, and then let the saw do the work. Considering this is also the most expensive lumber I’ve ever worked with, I’m ok with that decision :) I had to spend a fair...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #38: Outdoor Temperature Sensor Reading Fix - Part I

03-22-2015 11:58 PM by Paul Bucalo | 2 comments »

Yesterday I started on a project that will (fingers and toes crossed) solve a a simple problem with a device not working as hoped for. The device?The ACU>RITE indoor/ourdoors wifi temperature sensor and electronic gauge. The problem?We have been using it on the unheated back porch, and because of heat loss from the house into the porch area the outdoor readings are skewed by quite a bit. The answer?Make and mount a wooden hanger on the outside wall of the back porch; make and sus...

Shop's Log #21: Alabama Snow and the Meaning of Life

03-22-2015 11:11 PM by terryR | 23 comments »

Hi everyone, I’ve decided to try a new format for Blogs for a while and see the response. I’ve been reading Paul Sellers’ blogs nearly every day, and enjoy his ramblings on tools, woodworking, and life in general. So, thought I’d start sharing more of my shop life instead of focusing on one build. Since I’m such a slow typist, I’m always behind on sharing recent projects from my shop anyway. Maybe this unrestrained format will let me introduce builds in ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #46: Parqués

03-22-2015 10:26 PM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

Parqués is a Board Game peculiar to Colombia, although it has variations around the world, in the UK it is Ludo, elsewhere I don’t know. The problem is that unless you want to buy something that you would need a microscope to see, they are damned expensive…well by our standards, and I have now lived here long enough to believe in local values so with the family coming for Semana Santa / Easter, I decided I would try to make one, it’s not hard,. just time consuming. I ...
