Traffic Light Project #2: Finally some progress....

02-09-2011 02:31 AM by souichiro | 1 comment »

Today marked two days in a row of progress on my light project. This, after over a week of beating my head on the bench with the electronics on the lighting. But….. finally I have the basic light circuit wired and working, and tested with the actual lights that will be mounted in when it’s complete. Now I’m waiting for the paint to dry, and assembly of the “lamp” portion tomorrow. I’ll post as soon as I can get it together, and post a video as soon as I...

Skil radial arm saw

Need an upper guard for my 1950’s Skil radial arm saw. I have an old parts breakdown and need part #9231 for a 16” blade. Anyone suggest where to look besides the common on-line shops?

Shoe Bench #5: Varnish time

04-05-2011 02:42 AM by Jeremy Greiner | 0 comments »

Finishing the shoe bench took considerably longer than I had planned on. After a week of finishing,and a few lost days from tool assembly I decided that I would like to set up some sort of finishing area not in my garage so I can work on other items or just tinker around while the finish cures on my project. I did a quick setup on my enclosed patio area so now I can apply varnish on my projects and still tinker about in my garage. The picture isn’t very good because of the sunlig...

Endless winter

04-18-2011 07:31 PM by jbschutz | 5 comments »

Just when you get your hopes up; the weather man says we are in for another dose of winter. I sure hope he is wrong, but he is predicting 6-10 inches of snow for SE Minnesota, Tuesday into Wednesday. I actually put the snowblower away and got my boat out of storage a week ago. Foolish optimism, I guess. If this is suppose to make me appreciate spring more….....

Life #2: Tornados

05-02-2011 12:31 PM by Ocelot | 0 comments »

Well folks, there’s a lot of wood on the ground around here. The tornadoes came through on Wednesday. I thank God that my family and friends are OK. Unfortunately, not everyone here was so fortunate. At my 3-acre place, I had no damage to house or shop, but lost a few trees – including 2 white oaks 100 years plus, a couple of young wallnuts, a medium size cherry and a few other small trees. If anybody has a portable mill or a way to get some logs, I’m sure there a...

Antique Stanley Oak Tool Chest

05-25-2011 12:12 AM by venicewoodworker | 19 comments »

Ok, so I got a call from the guy who sold me the Unisaw today. In his shop, he had on the wall an antique Stanley Oak Tool Chest. The tools looked like they were never used. Had what looked like a number 4 plane, hand saw, bit brace with bits. That is all I recall. Now he wants to sell it to me. I can’t find anything on the web about it. Does anyone know where I can find info on this item?

Workbench #1: New workbench getting started

08-05-2011 04:02 AM by MedicKen | 6 comments »

Now that I have a table saw again its time to get going on a few projects. First on the list is a new workbench. It will be solid maple that I picked up from fellow LJ, John Ormsby a little over a year ago. John had some really nice 8/4 kiln dried maple at a good price so I came with about 500bf. More than enough for a bench. I pulled some of the maple out today and got started milling it up for the legs. The wood was nice and flat and really didn’t need to be jointed. So, I didnR...
