Sprunger 15" floor drill press

09-05-2014 06:19 AM by jlabos | 4 comments »

Sunday I brought home my latest craigslist find for my workshop. A Sprunger NDP 15 floor drill press for $50. It has some gunk and rust but it sounded fine and the quill is tight. It also came with a vise. I think I got a good deal. My plan is to clean it up and see how everything looks and decide if I will break it all down, paint it and do a complete restore.

Another facelift time!

03-01-2007 10:01 AM by Martin Sojka | 15 comments »

It’s another design update time! I’ve decided to celebrate our 1st birthday with the facelift of the project, blog, topic and workshop pages. As you can see life is never boring here on LumberJocks ;) Here is the screenshot of the updated project page (one of the Mark’s projects serves as a nice example): As you can see I’ve added handy statusbar/toolbar right under the project title. It summarizes all of the project “meta” info like the author, p...

LJ Site #1: LJ Picnic - ONTARIO, Canada

07-11-2007 11:37 AM by MsDebbieP | 19 comments »

The LJ Picnic is fast approaching (Sunday, July 15th) and I’m getting excited! Rick and I are looking forward to our little event. So far I’ve been told by a few people (including John, Extreme Birdhouses) that they will be stopping by. I noticed that we have a few Jocks in Ontario now, some within driving distance of me and so this is an invitation to join me. The picnic will be taking place in a small town about half way between London and Toronto. If you get the itch...

Joining the Computer Age: Learning Sketchup

08-13-2007 06:00 PM by Mark A. DeCou | 21 comments »

I first heard of SketchUp during the Thorsen Table Challenge. Someone had done some cool drawings of a table, and posted them. I commented on the cool software at the time. Karson brought a copy of the program with him this past weekend during his trip to Kansas. I started playing with it some this morning, and WOW. I had no idea that something so free, could be so easy. What’s the catch? I haven’t been able to draw up anything yet, other than playing with the concepts,...

Festool Reviews #1: Festool Router Purchasing Advice

09-20-2007 04:30 PM by Tim Colwell | 7 comments »

Festool rates their routers by wattage not horsepower. The OF 1010 is placed in the 1 ¼ horse sector, the OF 1400 is placed in the 2 ¼ horse sector, and the OF 2000 is placed in the 3 ¼ horse sector. Of all the Festool routers, the OF 1400 is by far the most versatile router Festool offers. 1400 watts converts to 1.86 hp. You may be asking yourself, ”Why should I buy the Festool router over the Yellow, or Grey tool?” To make a long story short, never be deceived by the hp rating other manufac...

Router Table #5: The next day, the next DOH!

10-17-2007 04:57 PM by Jon3 | 8 comments »

I prepped my hand-held PC892 for the rabbet that will support the lift. Put the right bearing on for a half inch rabbet, and cut away. There is where the DOH! comes in. When I made the jig to size the hole in the top, I put a half inch extra for the whole thing, meaning I’d have to do a quarter inch rabbet to make the PRL fit. Meaning… of course, that I ended up with a hole that was a half inch too bit in my top. DOH DOH DOH! I made some oak stripping around the PRL,...

Save the Children Standup Surf Paddle - final

12-09-2007 05:38 AM by Bob Babcock | 11 comments »

The Save the Children paddle will add $325 to the LJ fundraiser. The buyer bid just 202.50 on eBay but he and I had talked previously and he agreed to not only meet a $300 dollor reserve which somehow got left off eBay but also to include the shipping charge that he would have paid since I’ll be delivering it personally (he’s local strangely enough). He lives north of Boston so it won’t be frequent but it we hope to hook up for a standup session together as well when I deli...

My Adventure in Home Remodeling..the Wrong Way, Part One

01-05-2008 05:30 PM by tat2grl | 1 comment »

We became friends while working at the same place. She had a business in home remodeling and had showed me pictures of the work she had done. Even had a business card. My addiction to “Flip This House” and “Property Ladder” got me interested in this whole remodeling scene. I loved to paint; it’s zen to me. Watching the paint go on the wall, the sound it makes, the familiar smell of it reminding of Pop, the way the chemicals interacted as it dried to a slight...
