Toy costruction #29: Mack axles

03-24-2016 11:04 PM by htl | 12 comments »

It’s time to build the axles so the tires will have some where to go, then springs.Used the Shop Smith to drill out the square axles 1/2”so 1/4” dowels will be used. With parts this small had to use clamps to keep every thing square and in line but with full size lumber the fence and miter gauge would have done the job.Build the differential and checking out the drive shaft, much of it is just set in place to figure out the next step, making the pivet for the rear wheel Ass...

Just for Fun... #19: Parting is such Sweet Sorrow...

06-14-2010 04:28 AM by littlecope | 34 comments »

I had a whole fifteen minutes before the phone rang today and spent it parting the lid from the bottom of the latest box. I always get a sort of bittersweet feeling when I do that… It’s the “Last Act” of the making process. After that comes the Assembly Phase, with a lot more work to be sure, but all the fun of making the parts gone…Alas and woe is me… I guess I better hurry up and finish this thing so I can start another!!! :)But, I’ve got a very imp...

Adventures in Spraying #1: Surface Preparation

06-28-2010 06:23 PM by PurpLev | 9 comments »

Ah… finally some woodworking at last. I don’t really have any time or the mind space lately to focus on construction and creation much, and it felt like I was just collecting tools as of late. All with the preparation of ‘one day’ to be able to get to things. As it happens, I am able to dedicate a little time for some refinishing jobs as I don’t really need to think much for those, and it’s easier for me to get in the zone and just go at it. First ...

My Apology to Poopiekat

07-14-2010 12:28 AM by jackass | 18 comments »

July 13, 2010 Without Prejudice or Malice I apologize to you Poopiekat, but not without explanation and to qualify my reason for the apology and to quantify my retaliatory response. Poopiekat blocked me,the very person who said he would block no one for any reason, and after you wanted the ability to know who blocked whom, why, because it would be to your advantage? So Poopiekat, accept my apology or not, I crossed the line th...

Shop Remodel Project #3: Dried In (almost)

04-04-2016 10:30 AM by cdbridge39 | 3 comments »

I got the slats for the roof up and the metal for the roof is in. Just installed the metal roof all by myself in one day ( that was a job )! Wind was a factor I would lean the sheets up and the wind would blow them down. Still have to put up trim work and more bracing for the roof. Don’t know what kind of wood I’m putting up on the gable ends yet. As for the windows and the doors I still working on that too. I think it could use some paint soon. It’s still an ugly ducklin bu...
