Workshop Progress #1: Workshop Progress

11-02-2011 11:38 PM by WRAAdesign | 3 comments »

I am excited to join the Lumberjocks community to share and learn from my fellow woodworkers. This week, I continue to make progress on the workshop transformation. The walls were insulated and sheathed last weekend. Recently I began construction on the castor work table; heavy and stable is the key. Next I will build a power tool cubby. To design, I listed all the power tools that I currently have, and the ones that I expect to have in the future. After creating a spreadsheet of their ...

Day to day life #5: Snow Day

01-13-2012 02:54 PM by T. D. Reid | 3 comments »

Bill Cosby made fun of his dad “he had to walk to school uphill both ways in four feet of snow with no shoes and he was thankful for it”. I kind of feel that way this morning. We have an inch of snow on the ground and every school in the Muskingum Valley is closed. I really did walk to school every day in middle school and my freshman year in high school but it was in my back yard for god sake. I do remember more than one day walking in knee deep snow and my pants being wet when I...

14" Bandsaw riser kit, Pros and Cons

02-07-2012 01:39 PM by Blackie_ | 9 comments »

Something came to my attention yesterday that had not really surfaced until an attempt to make a fairly large bandsaw box with measurements of around 13.5” x 11”. I had the block of wood already eliminated to the size I needed but after taking a measuring tape from the blade to the riser I was surprised to find that by measureing from the riser kit to the blade I was coming up with 12.75”, measureing from the neck just above the riser block to the blade, I was coming up wit...

Hi everyone, I was giving MsDebbie, an update on Matthew, and where things have taken him. She asked me to share it with you all, so I will add it to the initial blog I put up on Matthew. Since adding Matthew’s first video to youtube, Matthew has been getting hit after hit on his youtube page. There are some key people that I can attribute to the success thus far. Let me start in order Debbie found Matthew’s video on G+ and asked if she could add it to LJ’s, I was m...

Unisaw #3: VFD bench testing 3 phase 3HP

03-24-2012 11:00 PM by barecycles | 5 comments »

The VFD I will be using for this saw is the Teco JNEV-203-H1. As a first test I wanted to test everything on the bench. I have temporarily setup a 30A breaker and wired the 2 hots to the VFD terminals L1 and L3, the common ground to the VFD terminal PE and capped off the neutral lead. From the VFD terminals T1, T2 and T3 I ran wire to the motor leads 9 wire setup. The only functions I have set are the frequency (60 Hz), accel time and decel time (both 10s). I’m a littl...

Bedrock 603 re-animation #3: body rework #2

05-07-2012 09:47 PM by thetree | 6 comments »

Today I surface ground the sides and sole of the body of the plane. I understand I will probably have to lap them again after I assemble and tension the plane, but this will get them perfectly square and leave minimal stock for hand lapping. Here is a shot of grinding the side: This is one thing that was bothering me most of the weekend. There is this chip at the front of the rib and I wasn’t sure what to do with it. I could make a repair piece and braze it on as before or I can ju...

Progress on lizard cane

05-21-2012 04:28 AM by mpounders | 11 comments »

I got the shape all blocked out and carved. I ran into a few insect holes, but I filled them and a few checks where the limbs were with some epoxy putty. I decided I would carve the eyes rather than order some glass ones. I’ve been wanting to try a technique I’ve heard others mention using epoxy to give them a realistic look. Here you can see the size of the carving and stick. It is not a tall stick, but you can rest your hand on the end or hold it slightly below the top. ...
