question about Incra ts-ls

09-17-2010 02:12 AM by woodsmithshop | 4 comments »

I am thinking of buying the Incra TS-LS fence, I have a PM66 table saw, Incra says for a TS 28” or wider to get their extention, for 28” or less the ext. is not needed, my table is 28” exactly, but the rails are more than 28”, should I get the ext with it, or do I not need it? does anyone have a PM66 with an Incra TS-LS? if so, did you need the ext?thanks in advance for any help you may be able to offer.

CS1 Kitchen Shelf

09-30-2010 04:51 PM by HalDougherty | 2 comments »

Here’s a simple shelf that I built and installed in about an hour one morning. I needed some additional space in the kitchen to store spices. I live and work in an old two story farm house and there just wasn’t a good place to store some things. So… I built this shelf from some black walnut in my cutoff bin. I make custom gunstocks so I end up with a lot of great looking wood that’s too short, too narrow, or has some other defect that won’t make a good looking g...

Workshop Build #26: Finishing the Siding

10-12-2010 07:53 PM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

Why do things always take longer to do than we think they will? The siding is on the workshop, so the outside is mostly complete. I just need to make a small front deck that will sit on the ground in front of my door. The sides were done (see previous blog post) but we had to do the back of the shop, which is a huge wall, 40’ long. The good thing is there are no windows there, so the bottom part went on quickly. We rented scaffolding from the Home Depot in order to be able...

Scrollsaw Chest Project #5: Finishing

11-06-2010 05:21 AM by William | 14 comments »

Today all that was left was to do a little more sanding, remove all the dust using a tack cloth and vacuum, and apply whatever finish I decided on. So here is how it went. There was actually not much sanding left to do. I did find a few little spots that were “scuffy” that I smoothed out. Then I went over the entire thing, inside and out, with fine grit sandpaper. Just to be sure, you know?Then I cleaned it up real good.Problem was, I still hadn’t decided on a finish. So I c...

How I did it. #1: Grizzly G0555X w/riser and Mobile Base Assembly.

11-17-2010 05:40 AM by JohnDennis | 10 comments »

Well, the day came and my new Grizzly G0555X bandsaw arrived along with the moblie base and riser kit. Here, I’ll talk about how I single handedly assembled both the mobile base to fit the stand and the riser kit. My hope that whatever little inspirations I had may help someone else down the road. Let’s start with the mobile base (32 bolts and all make it quite time consuming)Here you have your choice of bolt up through the casters and nut on top or bolt on top. Personally, ...

Good evening LJ’s This weeks post focuses on something that unless controlled can sneak up on you in a hurry and cause serious injury to you, your family, your business and potential customers!! What Is this threat? How can I prevent it? Well I’m glad you asked :) It is called burnout a(n) epidemic that plagues small business owners, it is a level of fatigue and frustration that no man can describe. It isn’t a fast all of a sudden type of attack it creeps up over time, sl...

Hand tool workbench #6: Tool rail and Leveling

12-26-2010 11:52 PM by brianl | 7 comments »

Since I got the top basically put together, it was time to worry about attaching a tool rail and leveling the bench. I constructed the levelers from four hockey pucks. I drilled a recess in them and epoxied in a bolt by the head. I then drilled a matching recess in each leg and epoxied a nut in each leg. By spinning the hockey puck the bolt will move in and out, helping to level the bench. To add stability to the system I also added a washer to the bolt head and epoxied that to t...

Workshop Development #11: LOTS of shop cleanup, and improving dust collection at the miter saw...

01-10-2011 01:57 AM by dbhost | 8 comments »

This weekend LOML did something bit different, she more or less gave me all the time I needed to actually get things done in the shop. What is doubly frightening is that after cleaning, organizing, sweeping, and tossing out a full 64 gallon trash container, and 2 contractor bags full of shavings, debris, and unrelated trash, I still have a LONG way to go before my shop is actually anything close to clean… I simply let it get too dirty to be a good thing… But with projects on hold...

Yellow & White Birch Logs #3: Headboard Assembled

02-09-2011 05:22 PM by CampD | 8 comments »

This past week, again plowed snow and shoveled more roofs (Roofs are collapsing at the rate of up to 50 a day around here, I should have plenty of work come spring fixing roofs) Finished and assembled the head board. Again this section was even tougher to scribe due to the top rail being curved and twisted, turned out pretty good. Next step is to clean them up to get them ready for staining, haven’t quite decided on stain color yet. Birch stays a whitish color, even when polyed. I want this b...
