Gil-Bilt 18" Band Saw build #3: Drive Shaft Assembly

08-16-2016 03:02 PM by mountainaxe | 2 comments »

I fabricated the bearing support beam by laminating three pieces of 1/2” plywood and trimming it to 1 1/2” x 9×21 1/8” dimensions. I then drilled 11/32” holes in two edges to mate with holes in right and left ends of the carcass. The kit included four special half round washers to hold the bolts. The beam has the ability to be adjusted forward; the purpose is to tilt the lower wheel downward to off-set the tendency of the wheel to be lifted up by blade tension....

Dave Talks #7: I lied. Full service gas stations, and Pokemon STD checks?

08-16-2016 01:51 PM by dbhost | 2 comments »

Okay guys this actually is fairly safe for work… And all but the absolutely stuffiest of pastors, priests, or rabbis wouldn’t fuss at this… In my video, well I didn’t get to do anything on my shelf. Honestly what woodworking time I have had lately, is for a project I can’t post online as it involves a relatives living situation repairs / modifications, and they do not want their home on camera, sorry… I ran across something that used to be a fixture i...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1763: Things are What We Make Them

08-16-2016 11:21 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 5 comments »

It is hard to believe that after such a BUSY day I would have trouble finding something to write about. But that seems to be the case here for me this morning. Yesterday was my birthday. And while I thought that I would kind of treat it like 'just another day', I kind of got caught up in the celebration and somewhere in the afternoon, I decided to just go with the flow and embrace the day and enjoy it. We went out for a late lunch/early dinner (Keith, his mom and me) and I g...

Performax/Jet 16-32 plus - Jetmax, PerforJet, PerJetMax,..... frankenstein tool gloat

08-16-2016 02:41 AM by Mike_D_S | 4 comments »

So I’ve had the Performax 10-20 plus for a while and really liked it, but in the back of my head I’ve been sort of thinking a bigger one would be nice. I happened to be browsing CL and came across a guy selling a Performax 16-32 plus with stand, extension tables and a 3/4 HP Delta dust collector for $600 last Friday. I went by to look and it was clean and everything ran like it should, so I took it. I figured that parting out the dust collector I’d be looking at $500 fo...

51 Ford Rims

08-16-2016 01:54 AM by SouthavenToyMaker | 6 comments »

Took some pictures of the Rims and tires during the build, so I figured i would blog it. First I located a rim that I liked on the web that was a perfect frontal picture. This is what I started with. I printed it out then shrank to a size I wanted on the copy machine. To make the outside ring of the rim i used a Hole saw and forstner bit. I start with the hole saw only going about 1/4 of an inch or so. (I use a 2 1/8 hole saw bit ) Now I cut out the center with the forstn...

Spray Glue Nozzle Glued Shut #1: Unclogging a Spray Glue Nozzle

08-15-2016 07:35 PM by bosum3919 | 7 comments »

Ever had a spray glue nozzle glued shut? Well I have and now I guess most of you are asking why I didn’t turn the can upside down and empty the nozzle when i was finished with the glue up. Good question. Only answer that I have is that I just didn’t. End result is that I have half a can of expensive glue that wouldn’t spray out. I tried all of the usual methods that came to mind. A small wire to ream it out, compressed air, cursing and throwing a few things. End result was t...
