Truth in Advertising

07-18-2013 06:38 PM by MrRon | 3 comments »

When a new product hits the street, some initial advertising is necessary to introduce it to the public. After a time, if sales go well, less budget needs to be spent on advertising, but if another product generates more interest, the advertising budget goes up to tru to combat the competition. This can go on and on for as long as it takes for that company to prevail. If advertising is kept up long enough, a company may no longer be able to compete without raising their price. This is a visci...

5 Knives #3: Preparing the blanks

09-15-2012 09:14 AM by AJM | 3 comments »

Here are a few photo’s of how i prepared 2 of the blanks although the stainless steal blank broke the m6 die.hopefully i have a solution to this and it will no longer be an issue on the other 2 ss blanks.With the carbon blade i die’d the end first to fit an m6 nut. i use this to help keep the knife clamped together. I have heard stories of the epoxy lasting a few years and the knife then simply putting it . fall apart. i feel the nut at the end is a good way of helping this...

Not exactly woodworking, but close enough. #2: Well okay, not exactly FINE woodworking... Painted Trellis for Joseph's Coat rose bush.

04-02-2010 04:48 PM by dbhost | 3 comments »

This is a project in progress actually. A very simple project in progress. The idea is simple. Build a simple 4’x8’ frame from PT stock that I can in turn attach a 4’x8’ trellis to. The entire assembly is to be painted to match the house, and attached to the side yard fence to give something for a newly planted Josephs Coat rose bush to climb. The trellis is painted in the creamy beige trim color of the house, and the frame (pending build) will be painted the burnt ...

Bandsaw box #4 #1: A larger box

10-03-2012 06:49 PM by ybotyawnoc | 2 comments »

So I bought a lump of wood from some guy on eBay. It was listed as being a piece of iroko, but I had my doubts. Anyway, at less than £6 I thought I’d give it a go. This is the eBay listing photo: I took it down to my friend’s shop (I don’t yet have a jointer), to plane the roughsawn edges off, and here’s what was underneath: Now, to me, that looks more like elm than iroko. But I don’t know much about it tbh. Anyway, I’m going to make a slightly bigg...

Norse Inspired Plane #1: Jointing Plane

12-12-2012 01:39 AM by deutschman | 7 comments »

Hey guys and girls. I’d like to share the first bit of progress on the jointing plane I am working on. Its inspired by this plane a saw while researching Norse boat building tools. Mine is made out of Cocobolo with two pieces of Oak glued to the sides. I just got the shape roughed out today, and am still thinking about what I want the finished product to look like. Do I want to go all fancy and put the horse heads on it, or just keep it simple and functional. Right now I am leaning towa...

Digital Clock #5: Wiring complete. We have lights!

10-01-2011 02:34 AM by Wes Grimes | 3 comments »

I can not figure out how to take a picture of 100 bright LEDs…It is much more readable in person than the pictures appear. Also, the blue of the LEDs is messing with the color correction of the camera. All that is left is to add the colons and screw all the backs on. Plus figure out how to get some pictures…

Slow Days at the Shop. #12: I broke my old dunlop utility vice.

05-16-2016 07:54 AM by fatman51 | 4 comments »

I kinda want to blame this on my wife. But we all know that she has not been out in my shop pounding on things with hammers. I am not sure when I broke it, but I have a good idea how, because I am always out in my shop pounding on things with hammers. I am kind of bummed to see that I broke my vice. It is a good 3-1/2 inch dunlop vice. More importantly, it sits on the bench at the end of my shop in line with my table saw blade and the top of the jaws rest 3/16 inch below the top ...

tragedies #9: I got the new bearing in place!

03-23-2010 03:11 PM by Gary Fixler | 3 comments »

I lamented last week that I just missed the closing time at the local bearing shop. I got there yesterday nice and early and they not only had the right bearings, but bearings with the exact same set of numbers stamped on the side. That gave me some confidence, even though the race covers looked a bit different. The man told me they were from their higher quality line of bearings, and here’s hoping. They were $10/ea., whereas Sears’ version were $4/ea., but I was happy to just get...
