Got Lucky

03-14-2010 04:35 AM by zlatanv | 6 comments »

Not a big fan of garage sales, but my wife is, so in an effort to not discourage her from going she will call me if she sees any tools (I think she is doing reverse psychology, it works), most of the stuff she finds is junky, but today she asked if I needed a hand sander, I always ask for her to send me a pic. This is what she sent It was pretty ruff looking when I went to look at it, no batteries or charger. Caked with stuff, looked like drywall dust and over spray, the shroud looked ...

Interview with Alison Heath

05-05-2010 03:06 AM by Troy | 2 comments »

A couple of months ago, I started following an eccentric marketing enthusiast on Twitter. I quickly learned that her work on various blogs seemed above and beyond normal in most any regard. Within days, I was overwhelmed with the amount of good information that she, Alison Heath, offers to her readership. The content she publishes could easily be that of a senior veteran in the industry. She possesses solid institutional training and experience in a demanding and realistic environment and I ...

Shop (Garage) Redo #1: Pete mutters to self..."remember to enable scripts on wife's computer before typing blog entrys

05-18-2010 04:23 AM by PASs | 1 comment »

Ok, must figure out how to move first entry in this blog into the series…after pounding the keyboard for an hour last night to vent my frustration on my week-old, week-behind shop remodel, I find that it didn’t post as a series because I didn’t click on the teeny, tiny window banner that popped up when I selected “start new series” at the beginning of my electronic tirade. But, not to worry, will figure it out later…must type now, caffeine levels are high, ...

Dan's Blackbutt Roubo Bench #17: Back on your feet and looking like a real workbench

06-01-2010 10:45 AM by DoctorDan | 3 comments »

I’m making progress on the workbench. Over the past few weeks I completed the glue up of the base. I assembled it upside down to allow work on the base without having to manipulate the heavy top. This morning with a little bit of planning, levering and muscle power, it’s back on it’s feet. It’s actually starting to look like a workbench now Now the fiddly pieces… end caps… vices… The individual components are largely complete but the assembly h...

Assembly help #1: Can't get the tilt lock on my drafting table to work.

06-15-2010 12:21 AM by jokerjay | 4 comments »

I just bought a drafting table recently and I must have missed something because before I took the top off to put in my car, the tilt locking mechanism worked. Now it doesn’t after I just assembled it. Anyone have information I can use? It’s driving me nuts, lol. Thanks. Joker Jay

Ready to finish

07-27-2010 02:43 AM by jeffthewoodwacker | 5 comments »

Spent some time on the sugar maple mexican pot today. I reverse chucked the turning onto a vacuum chuck and turned the tenon off of the bottom. The piece was then sanded all the way through 320 grit and then removed from the vaccum chuck. I build my own vacuum chucks using PVC pipe and attaching closed cell foam to the end of the pipe. I turn a plug from Trex wood deck material, drill it and then use a threader to create threads to fit my lathe. The plug is glued into the heads...

Custom Keepsake Box #2: The Dry Fit

08-22-2010 05:26 PM by wdkits1 | 5 comments »

In order to get the inside pieces of the box to be flush with the frame sections I cut the pieces of fishtail oak the same size as the pieces of marble ,routed a rabbet that when glued to the marble would end up flush with the frame sections plus give me some glue area for when the pieces are assembled. I used 2 -part epoxy to adhere the wood to the marble. The base of the box is made from 4 pieces of stock that are 3/4” thick and 1 1/2” wide, mitered on the corners , route...
