02-18-2012 01:23 PM by WoodLe | 0 comments »

I’m going to the Air Works Auction today in Kidron. It’s only about 6 miles from my house. Don’t know if I will buy anything but I’ll see what’s happening. This is a yearly auction with about 10-12 auctioneers selling at one time and about 4000 registered bidders. See ya there!

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.

Review of Tropical Exotic Hardwoods of Latin America

03-12-2012 02:08 AM by jusfine | 6 comments »

As we were taking in some rays in the Palm Springs area last month, I had the urge to see some lumber or tools, and realized it was not a long drive to Carlsbad California to the Tropical Exotic Hardwoods supplier. Their website is here It was relatively easy to find with GPS, and the warehouse was large and well lit. There were a few customers while we were there (about an hour), but it was not really busy – it was a week day around lunch time. They had ...

Delta Unisaw Question

04-18-2012 10:55 PM by venicewoodworker | 1 comment »

Ok, so the time has come to me starting to get serious about getting the Unisaw that I bought last year up an running. I am looking for some parts that were missing (blade guard, dust door and motor cover) but since I only paid $150. for a running saw, I can overlook the missing pieces. On to my question, I called Delta to find out the year saw I have. They couldn’t find it. I went to and from what I found there was kind of vague. Serial number is 15-6755. F...

Bedrock 603 re-animation #2: Body Repair

05-04-2012 10:53 PM by thetree | 8 comments »

Here I will explain how I repaired the main crack in the body. Actually, It is more of a repair of a horrendous repair job. Here is a good view of what I was working with: Sandblasted view of the “repaired” section: Sawcut through old repair: Layout of section I need to replace: Milling section to be replaced: While I had one side open, I figured I would take the time to straighten up the front of the mouth. As I said, the mouth was considerably squeezed closed at...

Outdoor Furniture #10: Patio Planter Boxes - Day 1

06-05-2012 02:04 AM by Retsof | 0 comments »

I started a new project today. I’m building two large patio planter boxes. The final dimensions should be close to 41” long x 24” wide x 20” high. I’m working from Woodsmith’s Outdoor Woodworking book. Here’s a link to their website: There were a lot of cuts to make for this build. The diagrams for this project are pretty detailed and that’s a good thing because there is no cut list provided....

How can I buy a New Cabinet Saw for only $20? #20: Just an Update...

06-20-2012 03:50 AM by Chickenfoot | 6 comments »

I have sold the rest of the Delta Scroll & Band Saw parts as well as the Delta RAS for another $400. I was at $2365 but spent another $70 at Paul’s (see the last blog posting) on some very nice wood and a couple more clamps and things so my total dropped to $2295 plus the $400 makes it $2695. I had a friend call me today who restores old Delta machines. Looks like he’s low on cash for another project and he wants’ to sell me a couple Delta 1460 wood lathes, Should have m...

Garage to Work Shop Conversion #7: Umm. It's pretty hot in there.

07-05-2012 06:21 PM by twoblacklabs | 8 comments »

Before trying to solve the heat problems, I wanted to document how hot it really was. So I picked an $8 indoor/outdoor remote thermometer. I placed one sensor in the shop at ceiling level. No desire to climb the ladder and place it at peak height. The plan is record temps today (and stay out of the oven), cut the roof tomorrow morning before it’s too stinking hot and install ridge venting and see how much it helps. Forecast for the today and tomorrow are similar. HOT. Tomorrow...
