Shop Upgrades #7: Air Quality: Dust Collection and Air Filtration

01-06-2016 12:49 AM by bkseitz | 4 comments »

The past month I’ve been having a great email conversation with Dick Wynn (Wynn Environmental) as I continue to develop my design for my dust collection system. Rather than the typical HF modification kit that replaces the filter bag with a large canister, I’ve chosen to eliminate much of the standard hardware only using the blower and substituting a Oneida Super Dust Deputy and a Wynn 9L300NANO filter. This should give me a straighter airflow and better performance. Add...

Shop stuff #28: 2 videos today

01-08-2016 01:04 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I must be in the mood to edit. I completed the video on the table for the mitre saw, and while that was uploading I did one on reusing the casters that came off the table saw. I am looking forward to relaxing from doing all that and more today. I edited 2 videos, shot the new shop tour with a special surprise in it, and I even managed to fire up the barbique and cook up some steaks. A good day for the first week in January. So, any way, here are the new videos: View on YouTube Vie...

random #22: JACKPOT

07-02-2009 10:59 AM by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

In early February, 2009, in rough seas 14 miles off the coast of Sussex, England, Russian cargo ship Sinegorsk lost its load of 1500 tonnes of sawn timber, which washed ashore on the beaches of Kent. The police issued warnings, but scavengers came out in force. Daily Mail has several great shots of people braving the icy surf and a high wall to claim the lumber, which is apparently still the rightful property of the original owner, according to law. Police were powerless to stop the lo...

Like Qbert says, "@!#?"

01-11-2016 02:33 AM by bearkatwood | 5 comments »

Thankfully todays glue up did not inspire a case of shop induced turrets.Like Qbert says, ”@!#?” It is not often I use more than half of my clamps. Years back I would use them all up in a day and be left needing more. Today I used up a bit more than half and I was hoping to get to more, but time ran out. I have the bench legs and top slabs glued up. The split is milled and has a bit more before it will get glued up too. To start the day out I made a set of cauls from a 2...

Shop projects #1: Rolling planer cart

07-20-2009 08:07 PM by GumbyGold | 6 comments »

I’m in the middle of building a very simple planer cart that will get my lunchbox planer up off the floor/bench and onto wheels. It’s a standard cabinet case construction to provide added storage.

Sqeezing more shop into small space continues #6. What not to do with a rip fence...

Doesn’t it figure, you get going well with a project and SOMETHING has to act up… You cut the same board three times and it’s still too short, the wife insists on you changing priorities for that night and watching some chick flick with her, buddies show up with beer, or something breaks… And then it all comes down to a grinding halt. Tonight was that night for me. I had gotten the cuts made, the holes drilled, and the fasteners put away for the wide table inser...

Weight organizer

08-26-2009 04:55 PM by kosta | 0 comments »

In this episode I build a weight organizer for all of the free weights. It only took about 2 hours to build which is not a lot of time. I changed my design 2 times and Im glad I did because my original design would not have worked. I use 2 2×4s and 2 12 in 2×4s for the base.

It is a pretty awesome photo, but I won’t repost it here. Check it out over on NPR, which also has an article about it, a movie on the making-of, and a slideshow.

Puttin' In Time

01-24-2016 04:55 AM by wmgworks | 4 comments »

Got to put in some shop time today. OK, it wasn’t in MY shop, but I still had a good time. These are shots of the set building workshop at a local high school. My daughter is in a production of Seussical The Musical and I helped put the sets together today. I think I felt my heart skip a beat when they were just slapping 2×4s at angles with no miters on the end to fit them nicely. And they even drove the screws without pre drilling (GASP!). But we had a great time. Unfortunately I ...
