I’m havin a very hard time finding anything on this beast. Excalibur by Summerfield Design. I know General bought them, but I can’t find anything on the FS 4415. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Terry
I have an old Craftsman 2/3 HP drill press that I have been using for years and it suits my purpose for many small tasks. Recently, the starting capacitor went out. I can still start the press by hand, but the capacitor won’t carry the load to start it. All of the pertinent information is printed on the capacitor, so I orderd one through Amazon. I have had the same problem with ceiling fans and have replaced the capacitors from there as well. The problem arises in that it seems that all...

I was sitting here this morning sipping my second cup of coffee and trying to think about something inspiring to write about today. Since I am still experiencing the lull that I mentioned yesterday, I fear that today's post would be bland and uninteresting. "Why then would I even choose to write?", you may ask.To be honest, I considered the possibility of skipping. Of course, that would be the easy and probably the most logical thing to do. While there is seemingly limitles...
I kind of got away from the blog for a while. Mostly because I haven’t seemed to have had a lot of time to spend in the shop. I got the panels glued up this past weekend. Got the divider and shelves installed as well as the back. This cabinet project is my first attempt at making raised panel doors. I got the rails and stiles cut and the panels run through the router. I have a Triton 3.25 hp router mounted in a table. The Triton cut through that cherry like nobody’s business. D...
Being bored one night, I decided to head down to my basement and give hand cutting a dovetail a whirl. I had never hand cut a dove tail before and drew the layout lines on a whim. After some work with a saw that was certainly not meant for hand cut dovetails, a coping saw meant for moulding not woodworking, and chiseling, I had my first (sloppy) dovetail. Say what you will, I’m pretty proud of winging it and learning a thing, two or two hundred for myself.
It occurred to me that it’s been 2 months since I posted anything. I’m actually done with the basement wall cabinet build and install and posted it as a project in my gallery. All in all, if I had to time the build, at most 25% of the actual working time was spent on the actual construction of the cabinets and doors, 75% on the finishing (experimenting with thinning and spraying the 5 coats of finish used: 1x primer, 2x paint, 2x water-bourne polyurethane). I for one am certa...
“A Horse, A Horse, my Kingdom for a Horse”. Terry and I left Nottingham after the Bodger’s Ball and Liecester was right on our way south. Richard the Third was uncovered during construction of a parking lot last year. DNA testing plus the fact that he had been beheaded and had a hunch back proved that it was in fact Richard who had been buried for several hundred years after dying in battle. A new burial place was constructed in the Liecester Cathedral and it was dedicated ...
Today I got the “furniture” pretty much completed. What remains to be made are the working parts of the saws and they will have to wait. Tomorrow I will switch gears and get into preparing for my presentations at the fine arts show. They are on Saturday and once I get through them (and maybe go sailing for a couple of days) I will get back to finish these little guys. The first shot here is of the chaos that happens when I get into a project. There are off-cuts everywhere and e...
After using the sawmill for awhile I have found a few issues needing some slight improvements. The v-belt would loosen up after some use and then the belt would squeal. I added a belt tensioner to the motor mount and now it only squeals when starting. The bearings I used for the blade guides worked great except they would seize up after a while and changing them was a pain. I decided to try wooden guides using iron wood. I changed the bolt out to a threaded rod for easy changing of ...
