Father - Daughter Project #12: Dry fit frame and final size panels

08-21-2013 10:52 PM by Mainiac Matt | 8 comments »

After sanding the panels we ripped and cross cut them to final size… I was a little nervous doing such a short and wide rip, but it went smoothly…. Since the miter slots on my new-to-me refurbished Jet cabinet saw don’t match my old Craftsman contractors saw, I need to make a new cross cut sled. Until then, I’ll have to use my Incra miter gage with a fence…. Next up was routing the lip with a rabbit bit. This was a bit of a challenge, as the pa...

Tools #2: Check your motor brushes on your power tools.

09-08-2013 01:59 AM by CMHN | 7 comments »

I was out in my workshop today making some sawdust. I am trying to get some projects completed for a show I am going to next weekend. I was ripping some boards on my table saw and about 30 minutes into it I started to smell smoke. I turned the saw off and found the sawdust that was under my table saw on fire. I was able to quickly tamp it out but was wondering what caused it. I knew I didn’t hit any nail’s even though it wouldn’t have surprised me since I was cutt...

Tool Tip #3: Reverse Glue joint at 90 deg Aug 2013

08-23-2013 08:18 AM by robscastle | 1 comment »

Before dismantling my shaper I decided to do some more 90 degree reverse glue joint work. I had some timber needing attention so I set it up again using method 2, cut the set up blocks from the single piece of timber. From the initial eyball setup I made another two adjustments and it was again a perfect fit. So bring on the 90 deg joint. Keeping in mind I was just using the shaper cutter and not a bearing mounted bit this is the result I got. Picture 1. This is the test cut...

Tool Musings - Thoughts about tools and working with them. #5: Made from scratch.

07-25-2010 04:54 AM by David Kirtley | 2 comments »

Well, I am going to build another bow saw. I don’t need another one but this one will be more special to me. Last time, I used the hardware from Grammercy. This time, I made my own hardware. This is what the Grammercy hardware looks like: I picked up a metal lathe a while back and finally took it out of the packing crate. The lathe is a little 7×10 from Harbor Freight. I decided that my first project would be to make another set of pins for a bow saw. It is pretty simple ...

Workshop #6: A Bad & Good Week for the workshop

04-28-2008 03:29 AM by clieb91 | 4 comments »

Well last Sunday we received around 4” of rain in a 24 hour period half of which came overnight. I happened to want to get something out of my shop on Monday morning and opened the basement only to be hit with the smell of “wet basement”. I quickly looked around and found some puddles and seepage around the whole basement but not a lof standing water. After coming home from work early I was able to better assess the damage, it seems my sump pump switch failed and the narrow ...

Who Knew Cutting Circles was So Easy

10-25-2012 04:13 PM by BassHunter | 5 comments »

I am helping my 8th grade son build a wind turbine for his Science Fair Project. He is testing the impacts of different blade designs on energy production efficiency. As part of the project, we have to build a hub to attach the blades to the generator unit. So I thought about different ways to cut a circle – not sure yet how big we need, but probably a half foot to foot in diameter will be needed. The options were – router, drill press (most likely not enough capacity), tabl...

2010 Contest?

07-13-2010 11:53 PM by falegniam | 6 comments »

Hi all,I don’t know if everyone pays attention to the annual contest on LJ’s, but this one I don’t understand. I just can’t figure out what this contest wants us to do. I even asked a couple of friends of mine, thinking that it was me not knowing what this has to do with. They did not know either. How are we suppose to show fluidity or movement in wood? If that is what this is saying. Can someone please explain what they are asking us for in this contest? Below is ...
