Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #14: Checking blade runout

09-30-2009 10:43 PM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Hi All, Since I will have to work late tonight and tomorrow night, I went over on my lunch hour and double checked the runout after cleaning the arbor. Then I checked it with a blade mounted too! Oh, the exciting news is that I ordered a helmet cam from amazon.idiots (I’m only kidding, I love them now). Rechecking the arbor runout after cleaning. Checking the blade runout. Enjoy! ;;J

Tablesaw Workstation #12: Danger - I may actually finish this thing

11-19-2009 04:51 AM by JohninSD | 0 comments »

These last two days have been eventful. Got the laminate glued onto the tops and got the aluminum angle cut to length and cut the end pieces to support the tops, installed the cleats on them, and screwed them to the workstation. The laminate was glued on with Weldwood Original Contact Cement – the smelly, flammable stuff. They do make a non-flammable, water clean up contact cement now but I think that if it worked as well as the original they wouldn’t make the original any more, ...

Extremely Average #22: Heroes

01-24-2010 04:01 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

In 1972 October 20, Pete Rose hit a leadoff home run, and then hit a single in the ninth inning. This was game 5 of the World Series, and the Cincinnati Reds had just staved off elimination, thanks to my child hood hero’s efforts. The Reds would win game 6 to send it to a decisive game 7 in Riverfront stadium. I was 5 years old. On October 22, in front of 56,040 fans, and at least one little boy at home watching on TV, the Oakland A’s captured their first World Series since 1930, beat...

Traditional German Tool Cabinet #2: Traditional German Tool Cabinet

02-15-2010 04:12 PM by Waldschrat | 10 comments »

Well, Here is my first Blog. Hope you like it, here it goes… So I was looking at some tool Cabinets and I decided it was time, after being asked by a number couple fellow woodworkers, to post some plans on building a what I consider a typical, unchanged for many years, German style Cabinetmakers’ tool Cabinet. I made some drawings and I hope they are adequate for everyone. I am not certian as to if this even interest anybody, but if there are any questions, or anyone need...

tragedies #11: the back yard fence saga

03-26-2010 09:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

It sure feels like everything is falling apart this year. There was the planer and its bearings. Too, more than ever I’m wearing out shoes and clothes. I’ve gotten wood glue or finishes on and holes in so many shirts now, and had 3 pairs of jeans become for lack of a better word ‘dry rotten,’ each ending up with tears more than a foot long. The dryer broke… again (washer broke last year – the bottom rusted out and after filling, it popped and dumped water a...

Extremely Average #96: Dry Run Dialogue

04-08-2010 04:12 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello LJ, I have now glued my mallet into one hunk of wood. If you are interested in the conversation I had with the mallet and wish to hear the rediculous joke the wood told, feel free to pop on over to the blog. There is a picture which shows the handle too. I am pleased with how it feels and looks. Brian

Simplicity Wooden Clock #3: Yet More Drawings...

04-22-2010 04:52 PM by CaptainSkully | 6 comments »

I finally got an afternoon in the shop, so I took my drawings out and was preparing to start slicing up the white oak and walnut plywood into gear-sized squares to send off to my laser guy. It was then that I started going through each page again (the plans are pretty complicated, with options that necessitate different parts combinations), and I noticed there were several gears that I hadn’t drawn up. So, I headed back to the office and fired up AutoCAD again and spent another couple...
