Farmer Pabull building Goat Trough Feeder #2: Assamble the trough

556 days ago by PaBull | 1 comment »

The goats are asking “How long could it take to build a simple feeding trough, farmer Pabull?” i had a heck of a time getting the 2×4 joinery to fit nice and snug without over spending a lot of time on it. I used Tidebond III and galv. screws so it would last a bit. It starts to look like something when the plywood goes on. I am not sure if I got the right plywood for this exterior project. I might have to put some extra paint on it to protect it from...

Jointer Help-Should I purchase?

527 days ago by JonK | 3 comments »

Ok, found a good deal on a jointer but not sure about the quality. I need the help of the lumber crew to shed some light on the situation. The jointer is a Craftsman 113.232211 contractor series… You know, the one with the motor up higher into the housing? Well, not sure if this jointer would be a reliable and modest beginning for this weekend warrior. What’s the thought from the pros?

Biplane Shelf #1: Wood Magazine Project

512 days ago by thelt | 7 comments »

Take it easy on me fellas, this is my first blog. This started out because it looked easy. I got the plans from my Wood Magazine stash in the October 2007 issue. The more I got into it, the more I wish I could have found something a little easier. Working with MDF isn’t as bad as I thought it would be. My only dislike is you can’t find or buy MDF in half sheets. Oh well here are some pictures of the project as I go along. I’m to the point I have two more pieces to cut out an...

drum sander paper width

464 days ago by Johnny Boy | 5 comments »

Hi,I’ve just bought a used King drum sander.As I’ve already posted here, this sander uses 3”1/4 paper and some of you suggested to replace itby 3”. Since then, some suppliers try to convince me that the wider, the better it is.One of them told me that he was cutting jumbo 12” paper rolls to the width I’d want in multiplesso 3”, 4”, even 6” as requested. What do you think about that ?.Tks.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1078: Making a Video (Or at least trying to do so!)

407 days ago by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

Let’s just start off today by saying that I am not that great at making videos. I don’t know why, but I get rather nervous when I try to make one. When I look back on what I did, I can usually pick it apart enough to shoot it over. (And over. and over) But that isn’t always possible when I am showing techniques. Not unless I want to cut the pieces all over again. And sometimes there isn’t time for that. I had the idea yesterday that I would shoot a video showing...

Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #2: Getting the Jet BS Up and Running

359 days ago by FreezFurn | 0 comments »

It took me quite some time to get 240v ran to the basement, but the installation of a new gas stove right above me in the kitchen could not have been better timed. So, I extended the line from the stove and added two new outlets in the ceiling of my shop. I did not want to invest too much money into a lemon, so I hesitantly hooked it up to the new wiring. It cranked up and ran very loudly with no blade. Which brings me to bearings. Here is a pic of the old upper wheel bearings. They were...

The Siegley Collection #1: My First. The #5

322 days ago by Don W | 9 comments »

All my life, through out most of my careers, my philosophy has been one of a generalist. Sort of a Jack of all trades, master of none. I like the variety and it suits m taste. My collection of hand planes carries that same eclectic foot print. When I’m out looking for vintage tools, I’m just looking for planes. I love finding a new treasure, sometime weeks and months after its been brought home and I discover what I have. So here is the start to my Siegley collection. ItR...
