Well I have eventually tracked down some documented information on the elusive sharpening angles, and the vague references to the mystery two cutting edge type Augers. This is the latest doctrine available to my knowledge, however as always if I am incorrect please let me know! Here we go breaking News! Page 135Note: There is also a reference to enlarging the chip extraction port. (it must have been originally small and evolved to what we see today) possibly from users enlarging th...
I saw a project posted the other day about a passive amplifier for your cell phone. I liked the idea and I’m always looking for small projects to use up the smaller scraps from other projects. It seems like I’ve got a constantly growing collection of boards that are too small to easily find a use for, but too big to feel good about getting rid of. So when I saw the passive amplifiers, I immediately thought about my growing scrap pile and my wife and two daughters who are cons...
Now the flasks are placed in the oven upside down and then heated up , first to 300 degrees F and held there for 2 hours so that the wax can run out of the flask. The oven in now heated up to 1370 degrees F over a period of 6 hours and held there for 2 hours , this completely removes any residue of wax that may be left in the flask,the oven temperature is now lowered to 1100 degrees F and held there ready for pouring. While the flasks are cooling down in the oven to 1100 F the bronz...
Several of you have asked for instruction for making the all wood folding knives I,ve been doing for a number of years. Hope I can give that instruction through this blog series. If to many get fed-up with this please let me know to stop. Starting today 4/27/16 we will begin. It would probably be a good idea to have a folding pocket knife handy to be able to look to see the pieces we are talking about. I will be making three knives at this time. #1 is choosing the material. You can make the ...
Had to narrate this one. In this video I cover the final cutting and assembly of the wastebasket cabinet. I used pocket holes because they are easy and sturdy enough for this application. To further strengthen the cabinet, I added a back to keep it from racking. I struggled a bit with the part that hods the trash can, and have since changed the design. Plans are located here:https://drive.google.com/open?id=0BwBb81zPeVCXMFdibTFpRHdySGsThanks for watching! View on YouTube Instagram: h...
This is my first rolling cart. I made this based on plans I found on the internet, to be used as an AC cart. The legs were first Next I did the bottom Then the top Next attach the legs And wheels Roll it where the A/C unit will go – This is where the cart and the AC will be resting with the AC compressor hanging out the window of the door. I still need to build the riser which I should get to this week. Once that’s done, I’ll enclose my...
With the updated system, I needed 6” blast gates for my shop. I was not very happy with the metals ones and the price of them. So, like others, I decided to make my own. For the gates, I would need to have one side be able to mate to the SDR35 6” wyes that I was using so this required a securely fitting the 6” pipe. In addition, I needed to be able to make accurate slide parts and various inlet parts. To do this, I made several templates which were sized to produce ...
I have recently started upgrading my shop dust collection from a 1.5 HP Jet to a Oneida Super Dust Gorilla. The old system was piped with 4” PVC but this was not adequate for the new cyclone system. Looking at the various options, I went with 6” SDR35 PVC piping and fittings. Fortunately, I have a Menards which stocks both the 6” pipe and the fittings. My dust collector is in my garage and then piped into my shop across the ceiling. I did not like the metal strap han...
Lighting is very important in any shop. Sometimes you don’t want to hardwire a light in or don’t exactly know how, but need that extra light somewhere. Here I show you an easy to install light.
As you can see I’ve glued in my oak boards that will be used to support the top of the chore so when it opens it doesn’t fall out or lean out. !https://s3.amazonaws.com/vs-lumberjocks.com/o6av43h.jpg These pieces right here are for the bottom supporters of the chores, however I haven’t glued them in yet because I have to make divots in them so they fit indulgently in the frame. The next thing I will do is make the chore itself.
