Old Sears Craftsman Shaper

10-10-2010 11:59 PM by Bluepine38 | 4 comments »

I found this Sears Craftsman Shaper Model No. 103.23920 at a garage sale for $50.00. My first thought was,even if I can not fix it the 1 HP motor is worth more than that on Ebay. It was made for Sears by the King-Seeley Corp about 1953 and came complete with rust and 5 sets of cutter heads that needed sharpening. The shaper was made to use either a 1/2 or 3/4 HP electric motor, the original misguided owner decided to makeit heavy duty by using a 1 HP motor. The base of the motor was...

SawStop Sliding CrossCut Table review #3: Using it.

04-23-2016 07:05 PM by mummykicks | 0 comments »

This table is out of spec and has a low spot which causes it to get scratched up every time you attempt to angle the fence. Did some measurements this morning and it’s .012”-.015” low where the fence gets attached. IF the fence wasn’t so massive and it had the ability to shift relative to the mounting the way (hate to keep harping on it) the Incra miter gauges work I could loosen it and slide the fence or adjust it up/down to prevent this from happening.Pictures at the...

SawStop Assembly #3: Adjusted the Fence Rail

04-27-2016 01:44 AM by HappyHowie | 8 comments »

I discovered that my cast iron table top was not flush with the top of the extension table. The rip fence would bump into the cast iron table. It was obvious that I had not installed the rail correctly. This meant I had to remove the rail and loosen the bolts on the right side of the saw. This was a very tedious process. I went looking for an extra set of hands to help me. After several attempts I finally loosened enough bolts or screws to get the saw table top and the extension tab...

Bedroom Set #3: Finally after changing my mind 3 times!

11-04-2010 10:28 PM by sandhill | 4 comments »

First it was CHERRY panels then it was Quilted MAKORE. That did not work because of the color variations from brown to Pink to red and missing quilt pattern in some boards. Not very nice. So I went back to cherry then someone (No longer here) offered me some Vernier which I accepted but it was brittle and old and I was not sure if it was going to crack when I applied it, I did loose the first 2 sheets so I went back and started looking at the cherry. After having my heart set on the Qu...

Turning project - Mother's day gifts #1: Design and guide patterns

05-02-2016 02:14 AM by Mike_D_S | 0 comments »

I’ve been very much enjoying the lathe I got and seem to find any reason to make a piece of wood into a smaller round piece of wood. I was looking through lots of people’s projects, bowls, segmented bowls, vases, etc trying to find the next challenge for my lathe education. Then I remembered that Mother’s Day was coming up, so I decided to make some more decorative vases one each for the LOML, my mom and my mother in law. LOML wanted another piece like the one I just ...
