This afternoon went up to the workshop and dressed the rest of the short boards of NGR .. 44 to be exact all 5’ long. Only took a few minutes. LOLHere be the pictures of the boards as they were dressed and stickered as requested by Bob and Blkcherry. Still have around 40 odd longer lengths [ 8’] to dress for the entertainment unit and the two stationary cupboards.. also two book cases.

What is this Tool?

08-09-2009 02:27 AM by Blake | 14 comments »

I Picked up this little gem the other day. Its pretty cool but I don’t have a clue what it is. Fits in the hand like a small pistol Markings: J.D.C. on end of “pistol” and C. D. Osborne & Co. Newark, N.J on the end of the ruler. The sharp end of the blade faces back so it would pull to cut. At first I thought it was a marking gauge. But there is no flat surface to register against, and your fingers would get in the way. What do you t...

Local County Fair

Its been a pretty good summer….but not a lot of shop time. I have been spending a lot of time fishing this year, for some reason, just hadn’t the desire for the shop. Well, to make a long story short, I didn’t go to TN this month so I entered a few items in the local county fair. I am pretty pleased with the results. My Sapele side table – Blue ribbon My Walnut and Maple Jewelry box – Blue ribbon Small cutting board/Trivet – red ribbon Purple Hea...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #14: Checking blade runout

09-30-2009 10:43 PM by Bothus | 3 comments »

Hi All, Since I will have to work late tonight and tomorrow night, I went over on my lunch hour and double checked the runout after cleaning the arbor. Then I checked it with a blade mounted too! Oh, the exciting news is that I ordered a helmet cam from amazon.idiots (I’m only kidding, I love them now). Rechecking the arbor runout after cleaning. Checking the blade runout. Enjoy! ;;J

Tablesaw Workstation #12: Danger - I may actually finish this thing

11-19-2009 04:51 AM by JohninSD | 0 comments »

These last two days have been eventful. Got the laminate glued onto the tops and got the aluminum angle cut to length and cut the end pieces to support the tops, installed the cleats on them, and screwed them to the workstation. The laminate was glued on with Weldwood Original Contact Cement – the smelly, flammable stuff. They do make a non-flammable, water clean up contact cement now but I think that if it worked as well as the original they wouldn’t make the original any more, ...

Extremely Average #22: Heroes

01-24-2010 04:01 AM by Ecocandle | 6 comments »

In 1972 October 20, Pete Rose hit a leadoff home run, and then hit a single in the ninth inning. This was game 5 of the World Series, and the Cincinnati Reds had just staved off elimination, thanks to my child hood hero’s efforts. The Reds would win game 6 to send it to a decisive game 7 in Riverfront stadium. I was 5 years old. On October 22, in front of 56,040 fans, and at least one little boy at home watching on TV, the Oakland A’s captured their first World Series since 1930, beat...
