But unfortunatelty (or fortunately – depending on how you look at it) I have sold my house where my workshop was. So I had to empty twelve years of “stuff” out of my old workshop and on to the porch of the house where I live now and set about recreating my worksop. The house where I live now, doesn’t have a garage that I could convert into a workshop, and no spare rooms I could commandeer, so my only choice was to build a workshop. I had two choices: Build from sc...
If I am anything, I am patient. I wasn't always that way, but as I get older and learn to appreciate things a bit more, I know that doing things right and getting things done properly takes time. Most times there is no way around that. We live in a society where everyone wants everything fast. Whether it be their food, something they ordered online, or even something that is hand crafted, people don't seem to have the patience and respect that is required to offer something ...
Summer arrived this weekend. Temperatures were in the low 30’s (high 80’s F) and that is hot after nothing higher than 70 all year. We moved to the wood into the garage for storage and I inventoried the hardware order. The lumber supplier failed to deliver the metal fabric that we ordered but delivered it the next day. I ended up ordering hardware from ScrewFix Direct in the UK. I could not find a supplier in Denmark that sold at anything but retail prices and quantities. I knew t...

I may or may not do much in-depth coverage of this build…I don’t have a lot of pictures for it. But I wanted to share this little bit of advice that I wish I had found when I needed it. I had a piece of old Lexan left to me by the previous owner of my house. It’s almost perfectly sized to become the walls of a Thien tophat seperator, and it’s 3/8” thick. BUT it’s been sitting in the garage for who knows how long, and the backing paper on both sides ha...
I damaged my ONEWAY live center a few weeks back and finally got around you repairing it this morning! I placed a split pin in the “locking hole” and then installed the live center in the headstock. A few minutes of turning and filling and I’m back in business. For more pictures and a full explanation check out the article on my site, DIY Repair, ONEWAY Live Center.
This is ment to give and idea of what happens to air flow when we do mods to a dust collector. I have been getting along with my vacuum ok, but time to upgrade. After stalking (lol) this site for a few months and checking Craig’s list all the time, I decided to buy a HF dust collector. I feel for the price it is very tough to beat.This is a very unscientific test and due to either bad jack on my cellphone (new Cat S-50) or due to the cheapness ($40) of a ABM-100 anemometer. This is ment to sh...

Step Stool I was always having to bring down my wifes step stool from the kitchen…enough was enough…make one for the shop. You Tube here we come for ideas and I found one that just fit the needs. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RHMzNRpScI8 This swing out step stool is ideal for my limited space and when you need it, swing out the lower stool and there you have it. I had some Pine laying around from old shelves that fir the bill.
