I posted about my radial arm saw table rebuild which was the first time I’ve posted here on Lumberjocks….had some good feed back on my progress when I received a message from Hillbillyshooter stating he had a CMT 80 tooth blade from a radial arm saw that he bought in error and would I like it. Free! just cover the shipping! We messaged back a couple of times about the arbor size and exchanged addresses and on Friday I received the blade. Wow does it work! smooth cuts and the -5 d...
I want to share an email I sent to my friends: A New Year is here First at all, what is wrong with our society?Like many American I come to this land to improve, to give my best for the future of my kids.I packed my life and I come here, with my bag full of dreams, and preconceptions too. A hardship business, this trying to find myself in this “new world”. Learning the rules and realizing: how wrong I was about this American society.Chasing the happiness and putting besides my precon...
I consider myself to do and be safe at times when I need to, BUT, in a blink, and because of a stupid moment, this is what can happen. I should have stopped when the switch on my dust collector started messin with me, then, I resawed a small piece o Maple, and right at the end of the cut, I realized that I didn’t tension the blade…it still cut pretty good, BUT, and this is the big BUT, I am embarrased to say, my finger kissed my table saws spinning blade while cutting (thank God t...
Two days in and I am hoarse. Although part of it I believe is the air handling system and how low humility is in building. Others have complained about that also. Of course I have been known to talk a lot also :-) Sales are decent, certainly not record setting. I have gone through probably 150 business cards. A couple other noteworthy offers from a couple store owners to buy bulk to resale. We’ll be negotiating as the week goes on. As you can see I have one of Andy’s bo...
It is the time of the your we get a little rain here in southern California AND we have baby goats on the way. So my kids are telling me that we need to replace the old feeder trough I build this old feeder about 15 years ago, but it is time to retire this thing.I need to get a roof over the new trough (the old one used to have a roof too) and we need more “key holes”, because we are adding goats faster than we get rid of the goats. The kids keep naming the goats, and you c...

Didnt get as much done today as I had hoped. I finished the template contraption on the MDF, to help with keeping things square during glue up…. I rough cut, to length, all of the frame pieces and straightened one edge on the jointer… ...still need to rip them to width on the table saw and cut them to actual length, which I just barely got started with… The scraps are starting to pile up though… Sorry there’s not much to this blog ent...
There is a “Girl” in the Shop Yes it is true and also wonderful for keeping the Boys under control. Although we don’t have a toilet seat issue. One of the great things about converting an old commercial building is that we have Ladies Gents & disabled toilets. Oddly, when our female friends first get the tour they always say that “you will be removing the urinals, wont you”? Well no! I’ve got sons, grandsons and I also come from a long line of men and it says Men on the door so they...
I have been looking at this great group and site for a week and decided to join today. I am just getting started in my woodworking adventure as a approach 50 years old. All the kids are gone and love being in my 20×30 shop in the backyard. I have already found several projects on the site I am interested in trying and they will definitely stretch my woodworking skills, but I have to start some where. Looking forward to years of adventure. I would be interested in meeting anyone in t...
In the past I had this old Performax 22/44 sander set up on a Delta turret radial arm saw. I used the motor on the saw for a few years, but it wasn’t very satisfactory. I took the sander apart and haven’t used it in years but I’ve decided to get it going again. I removed the carriage and turret from the Delta RAS (it’s a 9” and never had a guard so I never had any interest in using it for its intended purpose – still, it is very well made). I have a...
