Craftsman Lathe - more info/details...

01-01-2012 10:31 PM by MrMeasureTwice | 1 comment »

Before I head out to the shop to build, build, build more benches I wanted to share a bit of information and details about my $46.00 Craftsman Lathe. After digging around another fave web site Vintage Machinery I found my exact lathe in the 1941 catalog. I can’t say it was manufactured in 1941, but I am quite confident that this is the exact lathe t hat I have. Sadly, i do not have any of the accessories except for one piece, the 9 inch face plate. Otherwise, it’s a plain lathe. B...

Delta 46-715 Wood Lathe Parts

01-13-2012 05:58 AM by Trackman | 7 comments »

I have a Delta 46-715 wood lathe and 5 monthes ago the reeves pulley broke the flanges off. No problem, I ordered a new one from Delta, they said a week to 10 days. After not hearing anything for 3 weeks I E-mailed them back and they said, yeah about that, 30 to 90 days. I waited for 90 days and they sent me an E-mail and said you’re not going to get your pulley, not now, not ever.It’s too good of a lathe to just throw away, but I can’t find OEM or after-market parts for ...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #23: Sound Level Reduction

01-26-2012 02:42 AM by jerrells | 7 comments »

OK Scrollers, and anyone else, I need some help and information. I went to see an ENT for one of those check up things. After a lot of questions he was none too happy that I scrollsaw or anything else related to power tools. Now I use a DeWalt (52DB there) and a bucket head vac. but I can find its noise rating. I have been wearing the over the head earmuffs (with a 25DB noise reduction rating). Today after a lot of research I purchase some of the foam inserts as a second level of protection. ...

Work shop organization project

03-01-2012 10:30 PM by RussellAP | 4 comments »

I finished the shelves today and it did help a lot. All that stuff on the shelves used to be in the way. The box springs and the telescope are history too. Later after a rest, I’ll organize the rest of the space and hopefully have a half way decent work shop.

First Project With the New Powermatic Table Saw #6: Mobile base tested

03-13-2012 12:12 PM by psient | 0 comments »

After gusseting, I put the ratcheting casters on the mobile base for the Table Saw. I stood on the base and it did flex when all my weight was focused mid-span. However, with the weight distributed there will be no problem. I am not happy with the configuration of the casters. I have decided the thumb-screw is a better deal so I’ll use the ratcheting casters for another project. I’ll complete the welds on the base today and take a photo so ya’ll can look at it and give...

L/J swap list

06-22-2012 12:00 PM by hunter71 | 12 comments »

I know I do, and I am sure others have excess stuff around our shop. Tools, materials, plans, ideas. Is there a way we could create a type of “swap” craigslist” trade” site so we could list and find these extras we all have?
