Coffee Mill new for 2013

02-23-2013 12:30 AM by Syd Sellers | 0 comments »

After working with coffee mills for the last few years and seeing the supply of good grinders slowly disappearing, I decided to see if it was possible to adapt the original mill written up by David Reed Smith to a more modern Ceramic grinder.If this idea turns your crank so to speak, have a look here for my mods…

Moving Out of My Comfort Zone

03-09-2013 03:37 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

After all this time of posting project pictures and videos I’ve decided to move out of my comfort zone and move into the view of the camera. I’ve never been one who wanted to be in front the camera so for me to do this is very new. As with many of you, my goal is to create a video journal of my woodworking experience. I plan on being in front of the camera a bit more so that viewers can develop a sense of my personality. People seem to like being able to put a face with a name....

The Stanley #444 Dovetail Plane #2: Set-up & Link to Video Trailer

03-23-2013 03:29 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 48 comments »

This second installment of the #444 mini-series details the set-up required to use the Stanley Dovetail Tongue and Groove Plane and concludes with the layout of joints to be cut. Fettling a #444If hand planes are part of your tool arsenal, fettling has probably become a part of your shop routine and vocabulary. Loosely defined, to fettle a plane (or any tool for that matter) is to make it ready for action with optimal effectiveness. Aside from setting and honing the primary bevel of the pl...

The agony, the agony, some more agony and the ecstasy #9: A bad day

04-08-2013 03:23 PM by 404 - Not Found | 2 comments »

It was all going so well, had a minor electrical issue with the dust extractor (fried capacitor) last week, but the electrically knowing ‘jocks amongst you came to my aid, and within a couple of hours I had switched the capacitor from the band saw and was once more sucking chips and dust. However, I fear nothing will help me today. The foul stench of TS death has overpowered the spicy smell of sapele dust that I have become accustomed to for the last two weeks. Smoke issuing from the...

Jet cabinet saw re-hab #25: fence aligned, ZCI fit, etc...

05-10-2013 02:38 AM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

I use a Veritas straightedge and feeler gage to align the fence to the slot… I go for parallel and don’t let the fence open up on the discharge side… Since I got the saw for a measly $100, I splurged on some goodies… always wanted a Leecraft ZCI. UL-1A fits almost perfectly… just a little sanding and I have a nice snug fit. these things sure stink when you cut the slot. I made my first test cuts on the saw ripping 4/4 pine and it cut very smoot...

Good day for a tune up.

07-06-2013 07:54 PM by nitrowood | 3 comments »

Well today was a good day to spend on tuning up my 30+ year old 113 series Craftsman Band Saw. I took everything apart like the upper and lower bearing holders. Lubed everything and put on Olson’s Cool Blocks and an Olson blade also. I’ve only made a few cuts, but so far WHAT A DIFFERENCE!!!! I know it’s not a JET or POWERMATIC or any other “high dollar” named brand, but for a 30+ $90 used saw it works for me. Hopefully with the adjustments I’ve made it wi...

Restoring a Number 7 Bailey Jointer Plane #4: Before and After pictures, and some shavings

08-10-2013 03:30 AM by MrFid | 5 comments »

Back again! It’s been a little while since I posted on this thread about restoring a Stanley Bailey No 7 jointer. I had basically finished the plane last episode, but I hadn’t gotten around to taking pictures (too busy jointing wood, I guess!). Before I post pictures of the final product, I should say that the tote is still broken. I tossed around the idea of making my own, to the point even where I downloaded specs that would have allowed me to do it. However, here’...
