Bagel - Bread Slicer

03-11-2013 02:04 PM by Daris | 0 comments »

Here was an easy project that I did recently; a Bagel – Bread Slicer. You only need one board for this project and it’s something you can build in an afternoon. Here is my attempt at making a video of how I made it, and as always you can check out my website at: to see more projects and videos of what I’m doing in the shop.I also put up a listing of free project plans that you might find useful. It’s at:  ...

AMT 10" Benchtop Table Saw Rebuild Question/Issue

03-25-2013 08:36 AM by erichef | 2 comments »

This is my first post here. Hi all. I need help getting my table saw back together. I acquired this saw from a friend and it worked well. So of course I made the decision to rebuild and clean it up. I like to keep my tools in good condition and I saw a bunch of tips on cleaning the cast iron top so I decided to go a step further. I took it apart, paying what I thought was close attention and now I can’t get the blade to come up and go down easy. The saw is an AMT 10” Table. It does n...

A liitle more about my Sicar. Last Friday it was the first time I used a welding machine. There was a part changed by the last owner. This part was of a very poor quality.

So I welded my own and below you can see the progress: I am satisfeid with it, but it is not yet finished. Next time more about this spare part. .............................. My son made som...

A new begining #4: The extreme budget workbench

05-29-2013 02:36 AM by lumberjoe | 15 comments »

Goal Build a work bench in only a few hours over the coarse of a week, and for less than $100.00 The result: Absolutely no fine joinery – I am using 2×4’s glued and screwed – and doubled up instead of half-lapping them. Of course I used hot hide glue for extra strength since I don’t have any 90” clamps :) The top is a 30×80 solid core door. This term is misleading because it isn’t really “solid”. Save for the 2” on each edg...

The Slippery Slope #10: Saw Files, 75% delivery, and more waiting.

07-09-2013 12:31 AM by chrisstef | 57 comments »

If you like to endure pain like only shopping for tools can inflict then you can commiserate. Last post i had the vice and file holder made and i had jointed my 4.5 ppi rip saw. I Got a bunch of gear in required for my mission and i was waiting on my order of Simonds files to come in. Today i took delivery of 3 of the 4 boxes and of course the 8” regular taper file, needed for this saw, was the undelivered item. Another week. Sweet. So, not the most expert on files i figure we can...

Building a Cranky Crane #7: Ready for Paint

08-26-2013 11:14 AM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

Cranky is now ready for paint and the final decorations. The plan is to paint him primer gray overall. The control knobs will be red, and the crane boom will be black. The head will be finished by the addition of decals which I will make in AutoCAD and apply via decoupage. His face will be a slightly altered picture from Google, again applied through decoupage. The decorative elements of the base will be added through wood strips painted black. Mechanically he functions well, but I’...

Shows #1: Looking back on the St Louis Woodworking Show 2013

09-13-2013 07:05 AM by DigitalFabber | 0 comments »

The St. Louis event was my first ever Woodworking Show, and it was a great experience that taught me a great deal. Not only did I learn about some great techniques and meet a bunch of awesome people, I also discovered a couple of flaws in the design of my own machine, the NC-2 Prototype. These Woodworking shows are packed with vendors, classes and activities, from refinishing staircases to pen turning. It’s a great opportunity to learn. The dozens of vendors also offer great tools and supp...
