DeWalt 7730 radial arm saw

01-23-2010 12:41 AM by Gousty | 3 comments »

If anyone out there can help me run down the manual for the old DeWalt 7730 radial arm saw I would be grateful. I recently bought this saw from another wood worker for my home shop. He did not have the manual unfortunately. It is also missing the kick back arm – would like to find a replacement part if possible. Open to your suggestions. Thanks - Bobcamfam@mac.com307-283-2570

Window shelving #5: Not working again. Time to get started

02-14-2010 10:41 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

Well, I got a call on Friday that I was no longer needed at my job. (very disappointing). So now I can get back to the task at hand of building these damn shelves. I visited with Jockmike2 yesterday and may be willing to try his suggestion of using my router to do the dadoes. I am going to do some math before I decide to do that though. I still may be able to use my dado set. Will keep y’all posted. Rick

Entertainment Center #7: Finally complete

03-14-2010 03:07 AM by kolwdwrkr | 11 comments »

Well I finally got the installation complete and a final payment. Last saturday we installed the unit, but the base moulding didn’t match the existing (one number off). So I had to purchase some new base. I had my brother, neal, and Heidi with me on the initial install. Neal delivered it in the van, Jeff helped with the main installation, and Heidi helped clean, hand things, and look purdy. Today I went back and spent an hour to complete the base. Heidi went with me and helped clean...

Trying the Stanley No. 8

03-25-2010 05:33 AM by michaelray | 2 comments »

Finally got a chance to use the Stanley No. 8 I posted a blog entry about a few days ago. Gotta say it’s pretty sweet. I’m sure there are others that may be able to tune it to a finer degree, but when I remember the frustration of the first time I ever tried to use a hand plane it feels really good. And what a huge difference sharpening makes!! Today I was using it to even out the glue ups on my new workbench legs. I took a couple of photos to share. From Sawdust From Sawdu...

Extremely Average #95: Bits and pieces

04-07-2010 03:25 AM by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

Hello All, We are having a bit of a tornado Warning here in Jones county. As such, I have written a short blog piece, as I fear there could be power outages. I am adding bits and pieces to it from time to time. Mostly I just wanted to make sure that I kept my consecutive day of blogging alive, which I have done. I am sorry it isn’t of the normal type, but I did include a picture of the parts for my mallet. Ok, off to watch the storm a bit. Brian

Circle Cutting Jig for a Saber Saw #1: Quick and Easy Attachment for a Ryobi

05-05-2010 02:11 AM by JohninSD | 2 comments »

I had occasion to need 5 23” diameter circular pieces of plywood for some garden planters. The first one I cut freehand with my new Ryobi Saber Saw after drawing it on the wood with the old pencil and string trick. This sort of worked but it took longer than I would have liked and resulted in a ragged edge. I got to thinking – always dangerous – and remembered that the saw had come with an edge guide. I thought that maybe I could use that as the basis for a circle cutting ji...

Plant Stand

06-14-2010 09:39 PM by Shawn Sealer | 0 comments »

I saw the plant stand I built for my wife’s classroom, and it is a reminder that when you build a item for a specific spot it might not always be in that spot. Originally, the plant stand was meant to go in-between the back of her desk and the window. The plant stand was one of my earlier projects, and like many of you I’m sure you pick apart every mistake made on a piece. What I told my self at the time was don’t worry about it no one would ever see it. The stand will be beh...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #26: Back to Making Some Saw Dust

06-29-2010 12:05 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 6 comments »

I finally got down to the business of drawing yesterday. It seems like so much has gotten in the way lately, I haven’t been able to spend any time at it. I did a lot of looking around on the computer and was in one of those phases where I have several things that I want to do and didn’t quite know where to start. Those are probably my most unproductive days it seems, although I tend to organize things in my mind eventually and then it flows and I get down to business. I near...
