First Entry

05-15-2014 03:36 AM by MilFlyer | 5 comments »

Okay, so a little about me. I’m a military member who started learning woodworking from a great friend at Eglin Air Force Base. It all started with scrollsawing and of course branched off into other tools and their use. When I originally received orders for South Korea I had been told not to worry about bringing power tools or anything like that because there would be no space to be able to do anything. Besides, every base has a woodshop right?!? So I followed that sage and sound adv...

Hi all. Hope everyone is enjoying there woodworking. Have not posted for a long time. Running a woodworking business takes 99% of your time. Anyways I thought I would share with you some sad news. Delta Power Equipment has moved there once American made UNISAW to taiwan. Just got off the phone speaking with a Delta tech rep and he informed me that they ended up moving the saw manufacturing to taiwan. My understanding of what he told me is people were not buying the saw because of the price. T...

Old Sargent Planes #9: No its not a Sargent 5409, but the other one?

09-02-2014 10:57 PM by Don W | 5 comments »

More pictures on my blog I’ve got a very strict rule about computers. After the 2nd cocktail, I don’t return work emails and I don’t buy on ebay. But, who follows rules after the 2nd cocktail? Apparently not me. The work rule is easy. Who wants to work once the fun starts. So I made this impulse purchase. Its 2 planes. I thought one was a Sargent #5409. It was all there, the thin casting, the steel insert in the adjustment knob, the twisted lateral and a corrugated bottom. The proble...

Dust Collection Update

09-28-2014 04:54 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 18 comments »

It was one year ago that I converted my single stage dust collector into a two stage system. In this video I share the final tweaks and changes to my dust collection system. Find out some of the things I did that worked, and did not work, as I modified my dust collector. I hope that by sharing my experience, others will find it helpful as they make decisions for their own dust collection system. Your friend in the shop, Todd A.

Oak Wood Pile #1: Oak Wood Pile

10-21-2014 06:54 PM by VMTW | 2 comments »

I just got a load of rough-cut red oak from a tree that I had to cut down due to the “Mother in law suite” we are adding to our house. I thought I would write about it from time to time as it progresses from green wood to lumber to furniture. I ended up with about 1400bf of red oak for around $500! The first thing I want to build will be a desk for my office in the basement in the new addition. I am thinking of some kind of a Mission style Library table like this. I am not...

Making a Nicker

12-06-2014 12:45 PM by bit101 | 0 comments »

Last week I scored this lovely wooden moving fillister plane for all of $10 at a flea market. It’s in great shape other than the obvious missing nicker. Time to have a go at working metal. I got some O1 tool steel, pulled out my grinder and files and made me a nicker. All told it took me a couple of hours to form the exact shape. I still need to refine the cutting edge a bit more. And of course, I’m going to harden and anneal it. For a more step-by-step with lots mor...

Lumberjocks Tool Reviews - DO NOT BUY THIS SAW

01-13-2007 05:37 AM by Obi | 13 comments »

On first look the Hitachi C10Fl looked like a great deal but after using it for 2 years the following has become evident:Rated according to the manufacturer ar 3 hp found out that it is actually 1 1/2 HP a bold faced lie that they should be sued for. This is a terrible design, and although bigger and better that the contractor saws I’ve witnessed lately this has no business in a cabinet shoppe. The dust collection is attrocious, the port is off-centered toward the front, while most of t...

Major Pulse upgrade and "Who's Online"

02-25-2007 09:46 PM by Martin Sojka | 29 comments »

Finally the BIG upgrade is here. I’ve spent last 3 weeks researching, brainstorming, designing and coding. By that I don’t mean 3 weeks of fulltime job of course, because as you know this is not supposed to be my fulltime job. But you get the idea. I knew that the addition of the Pulse was step in the right direction. It enables everybody to keep track with all new postings that are spread across many site sections like projects, blogs, forums etc. But I also knew that as our s...

Nightstand Progress #1: Unifinished Business

03-30-2007 06:58 AM by gizmodyne | 46 comments »

I am going to blog this project and a few others in order to inspire myself to get motivated and finish. HistoryWhen we bought our new bed, our old frame had to go. So I decided as any reasonable woodworker would, “I’ll make all new bedroom furniture.” (It seemed like a good idea at the time). We only have one nightstand which stinks for the nightstandless person (not me this year). So I decided to make twin nightstands. DesignI picked the Harvey Ellis designed Stic...
