Contractor Saw Refurbishing #4: At the top of the homestretch....

11-07-2007 07:03 AM by slaphitter | 1 comment »

The project has been delayed for almost a month as a few critical parts were special ordered. Largely due to my failure to positively identify the model of the saw, I was not able to find OEM handwheels. So I went ahead and ordered solid cast aluminum handwheels, with revolving handles, in the proper dimensions. I also had to order lockknobs for the handwheels. These are not SAE dimensions, they are metric. Impossible to find anyone with lockknobs with an 8mm steel threaded insert ...

Setting Up Shop #4: Uncovered a Workbench

10-09-2015 05:03 PM by wmgworks | 10 comments »

Progress on the workshop has been a bit slow, I suppose. Most of my time is spent rearranging and purging things to make more space until I can get the lofts built for storage. But, as long as something is getting done – no matter how small – I feel good about the shop. It’s kinda funny the “ah HAH!” moments you have when doing this kind of stuff. Pictured below is something that has been in our garage since we moved in over 15 years ago. It’s also been ...

Back in the Groove!

12-04-2007 04:16 PM by Huckleberry | 13 comments »

Ah Huck’s back! In the shop that is. Took the hand longer to heal that I had first hoped, but all is well now. It amazes me that when you loose the ability to do something that you really enjoy how great of a feeling it is to get back in saddle. So I am back on track with this futon that I am making and had plenty of time to make design changes and this thing is turning out a heck of a lot better than I thought. I hope to have some pictures soon on this. I hate to disappoint every...

Stanley 45 box #7: Flushing off the Reinforcements

10-13-2015 01:42 PM by Mitch Peacock | 3 comments »

Last time I installed reinforcements to the plain mitred corners of my Stanley no.45 Box, and left them to cure. Now came the time to flush of the excess material, and knock the sharp edges off. The initial work was done with my small pull saw, after which I turned to a sharp chisel, and then smooth plane and card scraper. Supporting the box over boards clamped to the bench top works really well, and this method is often used when making drawers. Once the surfaces were satisfacto...

Turning Gasoline into Lumber #2: Enough playing around, now lets make some lumber.

10-28-2015 11:05 AM by Garret D., Rock Run | 2 comments »

So after playing around with the Alaskan saw mill, using the chainsaw, I saw that I wanted to do this, but that was just too slow. So we upped our game and got the Norwood HD36 bandmill. The link below is my first video on using the 36 inch Bandmill (13 foot bed). I am neither good at making videos, nor am I very good as a sawyer. But I am having a great time.
