Hellow my Fellow Jocks, Bloggers and watchers! Today I just wanted to post a little blog that seems to happen to me and probably some of you or will eventually anyway. Money: The Greater of all Evil, What makes the World go around, If you got it, you don’t need it, If you don’t need it, you got it. Time: Some have lots of it, Some don’t have any of it, Some it’s a little iffy, they may have it but not lots of it. Feeling Like It: Some feel great, o...
Since I don’t have the kiln dried 4×4 material for the legs of my FWW workbench project, my rails have been sitting, stacked neatly, stickered even behind the bandsaw waiting to be assembled. Well doing some obligatory shop cleanup this evening as I was getting ready to make some cuts for another project something odd caught my eye… The neatly stickered stack that was there last night had fallen to a disogranized pile. But why? I go to the pile, and try to stack &...

Can I put pics in the blog? I’d like to share my project with you guys, but it would be better if you can see it. Let me know please.We were given an overflowing truckload of scrap hardwood a fellow woodworker who was moving to south america. A lot of it was t and g floor cut offs and most of the ironwood planks were stained half way down the length and most all of it was stock rejected due to imperfections. So I thought it was a great opportunity to hone my joinery skills and do someth...
Hot Rodding a Harbor Freight Bandsaw. #2: All the pieces parts for the tension assembly are in, almost...
My order from Grizzly is in, and like an idiot I was following the parts list from Grizzly. The parts list shows an INCORRECT number of the following part… 143, PB09M 1 Hex Bolt M8-1.25×20 The actual quantity should be 2. These are the bolts that hold the main assembly to the band saw frame… Fasteners wise, I was able to source everything from my local Ace Hardware store in their Hillman Fastener bins with no problem. Yes Metric is more expensive than SAE hardware, but si...
I will just give a quick synopsis of my build so far. It has been on hold while I have been building my new shop. It has been under a tarp in my front yard for the last year. I got started on this project as I wanted to build a boat to take my grandson fishing and camping. I was originally going to build a 18’ Redwing. I showed my father-in-law the plans for the boat while my wife and I were visiting him. He said I think you should go bigger. My wife said I think Dad is right. ...
OK Since I was Aiming for the past few holiday weekends to get alot more shop time I went to the BOX store and bought 10.. of 3/4”x8”x8’... Went thru 2 box stores to be fair… Then I glued up 8 pairs using a Face/Biscuit Joiner to insure they were glued up true… and clamped the crap out of them.. I new they were going to be WIDER then the final piece so I didn’t use anything to protect the outside edges. I did run them though my Joiner clamped and pai...
For years I have looked at Incra’s table saw fence system. It has always been on my want to have list, but never on my need to have list and I could not justify the price. As I see it, the purpose of the Incra system is the ability to set the fence with very good accuracy and repeatability. Now there is Wixey’s new WR700 digital fence measuring tool. I have never seen one (other than pictures) but based on my reading, this tool lets you set your fence with great accuracy ...
Act 1Today was productive in the shop. I was going to get the baby jointer up and running so I could fix my sled fence glue up, which, really was fairly close the second time. After running some errands, I assembled the Delta Bench Top jointer. You know, the one I bought for about $200 on closeout in September, I think. Got it out of the box for the first time yesterday and removed the glunk. Today I assembled the fence and the guard, fast, no brainer. Decided I wanted to clamp it to my be...
