Movement trials and tribulations

03-25-2010 03:02 AM by Tim Dahn | 3 comments »

After receiving the movement I purchased from Merrits antiques I spent an evening trying to get it to run on the test stand for more than a couple minutes. I finally decided I had a defective movement and after tweaking on this thing for a couple of hours I also decided I did not want to try another. The movement I bought was a copy of the American 8 day movement made in India and I would not recommend using this movement, the quality is just not there. I can recommend Merrits they were easy ...

Toy costruction #23: Starting the planing of the future truck

03-06-2016 08:33 PM by htl | 15 comments »

Starting a new post for my next build which will not be the logging truck as planned but a truck that will match up with the Excavator.I may leave the frame long at first for the well drilling rig but want a truck and trailer for the excavator. I like the look and feel of the excavator much more than the drilling rig so we will have more fun and enjoy it more building for that.I’m thinking of using the Mack LR as my main body type but Dutchy showed me the DAF truck from Europe which ...

Dave's Workshop #15: I improved my tapering jig

03-10-2016 07:51 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

Over a year ago I posted this blog entry [link] about the jigs I’ve made for my table saw. Even then I knew the tapering jig pictured above was in need of augmentation. At the time it was adequate, but every time I used it… This week I decided to just take the time and fix the old tapering jig up so that wouldn’t feel so much on the edge when I use it. The main reason though is that I want to use it more for putting a nice clean edge on boards that are not straight. ...

Computer Table #2: Assembly and Finish

05-04-2010 02:36 PM by Morton | 2 comments »

I completed work on the Computer Table. It was a pretty simple, painted project made entirely from 3/4 baltic birch plywood. In this episode I take the pieces and work on assembly and finish. The table has about 10 plywood parts that were originally assembled using joint connector bolts. Once I had pre-assembled the piece I just didn’t like the look of those connectors. So I decided to switch over to pocket screws everywhere. I could hide them on the underside and back easily enough. ...

Blog #1

03-17-2016 01:28 PM by MatthewTruax | 1 comment »

With this being my first blog, I’ll start by saying that my name is Matthew Truax. I’m currently serving the Army, and I live in the Midwest. Of course, being in the Army and having a wood shop has proven to be difficult as I’m currently well over my household goods weight limit. I’m trying to mitigate that by getting rid of what I don’t need and building multi tool stations in the shop to alleviate space issues as well. My shop currently resides in a two car ...

Woodworking Classes, are they worth it?

05-17-2010 02:23 PM by Kjuly | 23 comments »

First the disclaimer…I have been teaching woodworking classes for several years. Just so you know up front, this is not a sales pitch, just a look into why someone wood (pun intended) want to spend time and money to take a class when there is so much free information on the web. There are countless woodworking forums, blogs and online magazines packed full of useful information. As fast as you can click your mouse, you can find a boat load of information on every aspect of woodworking. ...

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...
