Going to Woodworking School #1: The First Day of School

10-30-2009 08:27 PM by John Fleming | 3 comments »

Thursday, August 27, 2009 The First Day of School I don’t think I slept the night before the first day of Woodworking School. I had been waiting five years to do this, now it was actually going to happen. Maybe I was worried about going to school again after all these years, or I might just have been excited about the next phase of life. How many of us dream about the day we can do the things we want? My day to do that very thing has finally happened. To go back a few years five t...

My 1st Crosscut Sled #3: Putting it all together

10-09-2012 11:20 PM by Chris McDowell | 2 comments »

First, I put some 1” screws into the front fence to help keep the two halves together. Those smaller holes are the shelf pin holes that were part of the bookshelf I made this sled from. I then started attaching the rear fence. I put a few 2.5” screws from underneath. Then I put some 5/8” screws into the runners from underneath. When I started setting up to put the front fence up I realized that it was so tall I wouldn’t be able to reach the stock ...

Poll for 8/7/08 I know we are waiting for 8/08/08 but, that's tomorrow.

Some one suggest that we have a polll on if you were stranded in a desert what tool would you like to have. Now I think thats foolish. Theres no wood there so I’d want the lightest tool that I could carry. So the poll is if you were on a beach with ample supply of driftwood of various shapes floating by or stuck in the sand, What tool would you like to have. I’m assuming that you have a long extension cord available available for your use (With power flowing out the end) ...

Live and Learn

So I’ve been doing a lot of screwing making 16 Izzy Swan style bar clamps. He uses two cordless drills, one with a drill bit in it, and another with a driver, so that he can quickly make holes and drill the screws into the wood. Me, I have to change bits. Additionally, I do not have a drill bit that both drills the appropriate hole and the counter sink in one. For me it is three bit changes per hole. Then I remembered that I have a Makita hammer driver. I could use that for the drive...

Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #15: It's not as bad as I thought

10-01-2009 11:00 PM by Bothus | 1 comment »

In yesterday’s video I rechecked the runout on my arbor and blade after cleaning them. I was concerned because the runout at the blade was .003”. Turns out that’s not too bad. I couldn’t stand not knowing so I did the math.This is a scaled drawing I did in AutoCAD. Point A represents the bottom edge of the arbor flange. Point B is a point .001” out from the top edge of the arbor flange. Point C represents the top edge of the blade. I extended a line from poi...

Safey Checkup for the New Year

02-05-2010 06:27 AM by KnotWright | 9 comments »

So today I’m browsing around here on Lumberjocks, checking out the projects, the blogs, and the workshops. I always play a little game when I’m checking out the workshops, “where in the world is the extinguisher” sorta like that “Where’s Waldo” I give bonus points when I spot em. I also am on the look out for those “hidden” and not so hidden “GOTCHA’s” you know those things we know we shouldn’t do, but hec...
