Charging my Trend Air Shield

07-09-2015 03:35 AM by cajunpen | 7 comments »

i have a Trend Air Shield, not the Pro model, that I have lost my charger. A new charger is about $60.00, which is crazy for what it is. The battery is 3.6 volts and can be removed from the shield. Does anyone have a suggestion? I have seen a replacement charger for the Pro model on YouTube, but the “plug ins” are totally different. Any help/suggestions will be appreciated.

Greene and Greene tool chest. #7: Top part 2: Ebony spline jig/top inlay

07-14-2015 02:23 AM by lateralus819 | 1 comment »

I was contemplating even attempting this. I knew I didn’t want to do Ng’ jig as I don’t have guide bushings and I figured I’d messup the mortise for it anyways. Here is my version and it works incredibly well. I hope it can help some people and ease some tension on this critical step. The first step is to secure some quality ply, the router and bit of choice and some patience. The jig is constructed similarly to an “Exact width dado jig”. Make two ...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #17: Stan Sullivan

07-19-2015 07:48 PM by Dave Rutan | 7 comments »

I forgot how I found him, but Stan Sullivan is another one of those video woodworkers that I watch. His narrative is clear and the sound quality in his videos is very good. Admittedly his woodworking is straight forward, but he uses some interesting techniques to get things done. The statement from his YouTube channel reads: ‘Fancy workshop with expensive tools. Not here. Just a garage, basic tools and a belief that Doing it yourself brings confidence and a sense of satisfaction...

08-15-2015 07:35 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

Well, the brace till is done, now I need a place to stash all the bits in…. There are a few more upstairs, in hiding I think. Had some thin Oak scraps. Chose four of them to makes a few sides to a box. Threw some tools out on the bench, to cut some through dovetails with. had an old, single fluted dovetail router bit. Used than as a pattern. The big red clamp to hold the pieces still while I chop away. Saw work was by a Disston No.5 backsaw, and the bandsaw from Te...

Refinishing Projects #1: Joye's Coffee Table

08-22-2015 06:58 AM by Mark Wilson | 10 comments »

This is what happens when I do it right. Know this: Nothing (NOTHING) comes easy for me. Joye, my friend and neighbor, Bonny’s and Clyde’s Mommy, had this coffee table for years. The years showed: Scratches, dents, rub spots, dull, faded, dead finish. She wanted the top refinished. Just the top. So, I began with the legs. Some Howard’s and some 0000 made them look pretty good, without taking away any of the aged character. The top looked like this, in ...

I posted my completed bar project last December; had the idea of a bar mat made out of those rubber stubby holders you get on holidays in gift shops.Anyway I had a collection of over a hundred to choose I decided to stitch a few together (that’s hand stitch because I couldn’t find any volunteers with a sewing machine).Lucky I didn’t do any closeup photos to show my less than average sewing ability, but from a distance they don&#...

My lathe journeys. #36: ... Dang! That was a hard "catch" !

08-30-2015 12:23 AM by JoeinGa | 10 comments »

So I’m turning my latest bowl. It’ll be the biggest one yet that I’ve done. Everything is going along fairly well and I can only guess ( in hindsight ) that I must have shifted my weight and leaned in a bit too much, because all of a sudden … BANG! The tool catches and next thing I know I’m holding only HALF of the tool! YIKES! Made me jump when it happened. .Looking at the pix you can see that my glue joint actually held, it was the walnut that snapped. .......
