E I’ve been wanting to upgrade my dust collector for awhile now, so I decided to get it dine. First I added a Thein baffle just below the intake port.Second I ordered a Wynn filter, since I had an internal baffle I couldn’t use the one made for single stage collectors. Third I added velcro pieces to the bag and collector, boy did that make putting the bag back on a lot easier .
I just posted part 2 of this series on YouTube. Click here to view it. In this episode, I clean up the base after letting the glue dry overnight, then I cut a hole in the top to accept the organ leg post and I modify the organ leg post to make it ready to install into the base. Due to the low audio on my voice in part one I decided to try something different on this one by overdubbing myself describing what is going on. I’ve seen other people on YouTube do this and I think it hel...
Theresa was released from the hospital on Saturday! Of course she was given a huge list of drug prescriptions that had to be filled before we could get home. Although it only took less than an hour to fill them, it seemed like forever, when you have spent the last 10 nights in the hospital and all you want to do is get your wife home, and comfortable. It seems the only way I got through it, was more coffee:). Thank you all for your love, support and encouragement!!!! To get back to the...
I’m pretty new to this website and I’ve seen a lot of great projects that has piqued my interest. The question I have is “how do I go about getting plans for some of these projects?” I respect each and everyone’s privacy and their initiative to ‘invent’ their projects. Therefore, I don’t want to invade anyone’s privacy as far as the construction plans go. Please let me know if there is a way to get them!!! Thanks to all and I hope tha...
It looks like these cheap battery drills and batteries, aren’t so cheap afterall, they don’t hold a charge very long, thats what I used to think, but now I’m thinking its not so much the batteries but the minimal charger capacity they give you in these kits, if I can charge this drill so fast and strong charge, because the xformer, can carry a larger load, then with careful charging time, I can get maximum charging on these cheap battery tools, and get exceptional use out of...
OK – gotta start at the beginning In my haste I bought and opened a gallon of high gloss water based finish. I absolutely HATE it !! Has anybody found a way to take the golss out aside from shaking the can ? I already tried that and it doesn’t work too well.I don’t want to apply and then tone it down with a compound or steel wool, I prefer to add something to the finish prior to application.I know there use to be an additive for paint that would tone it down but it...
I finally got the SCMS dust hood finished and installed. Just need to finish up the ducting which will probably happen this weekend… The design is pretty simple, just an open frame held together with pocket screws and glue, a simple top screwed to the frame, and a thin melamine coated hard board curved panel attached with screws and fender washers to the frame. As you may recall I messed up my measurements, and had to extend it. I didn’t want to fully scrap it, so I simply t...
I had an epiphany today while looking at this carving and realizing this will take me just as long as the larger Green men despite being less than half the size. Don’t laugh, but it took me 15 months to figure out I am treating carving like tattooing. An intricate drawing on a flat surface (or surfaces) then working away at it until it looks like the picture in my head, it works, but it is inefficient because I spend so much time carving away waste wood, re-drawing the design when I car...
Planned out my schedule of work. Haven’t got anything done because I just got back to school and that guy messed stuff up. So my plan for the week is to plain all my wood
We had some pretty sustained Santa Ana's last week. The strongest gust as measured at the local weather observatory was only 43mph (~60kph), but it was a very consistent period of wind over two days. For those not familiar with the term, it is a very strong system of wind usually warm and dry that can clock upwards of 80mph (120kph). While making my morning coffee I noticed one of the trees near the house swaying a bit more than usual. It died during a late season drought which we didn&...
