Trial Lawyers and Table Saws

10-09-2010 11:52 PM by smgaines | 31 comments »

I read an article today from Regina, SK about a student that had two fingers cut off in a table saw accident. Let me start off by saying that I feel for anyone that has a serious accident in the workshop. Especially one where you loose fingers. The student is taking legal action against the school for “board negligence, instructor incompetence and shoddy equipment”. I read on thinking that maybe a fence was damaged or that there was a misalignment of the blade, but when you re...

Torqueing Custom Torque. #1: Customising the Torque WorkCentre.

10-09-2010 10:30 PM by degoose | 7 comments »

In this series we will be talking Custom…. a custom made Torque WorkCentre that is..A short time ago I was approached by a rather large Cabinetmaking/Joinery company with regards a special job they need to do…It seems that as part of a multi million dollar contract,  they need to make a variety of desks, both stand alone and with returns [ so this means that some have two gable ends and some only one..].  The desks were made from 54 mm [just over 2 inches] thick plywood ranging in...

"Suspended 4" - the unsuspended table

10-09-2010 07:24 PM by KnickKnack | 2 comments »

Ah – what a trail of disaster this was. However, something came out in the end, albeit not what was originally designed, but something OK. The original design work for this, if you could call it that, is in this picture… I’d decided to go with… I picked out the beech plank I was going to use – I was looking for a subtle grain pattern to accentuate the spiral – I flattened it, edged it, and then panic set in and I lost my nerve. I’m no...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #2: Seeing the Fangs

10-09-2010 04:21 PM by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

This article was originally posted on the “Little Good Pieces” blog on September 11, 2010: My wife had a nasty scare the other day. She was mowing near the house with our zero-turn mower when she accidentally ran over an old bath mat the dogs had dragged up. The mower started a nasty vibration that jerked her body and thusly the control levers. The mower immediately took off like a bucking bronco, tearing a chunk out of the doghouse roof, knocking a support post completely loos...

The grease box story #1: Roy Underhill's grease box

10-09-2010 04:06 PM by mafe | 30 comments »

The grease box story.Chapter one: Roy Underhill’s grease box Before I begin, I’ll quote myself: ‘If Roy Underhill is a snow storm, then I’m a snow flake’. Since I posted my first grease box here, there have been some discussions going on about the hen and the egg…- Most people never heard about a grease box until Roy Underhill made the dovetailed grease box. - Since I’m Danish and don’t have satellite TV, I never heard about Roy Underhill.Since then my eyes was opened up, and I re...

Tomorrow I Will Be Back in the Shop Once More!

10-09-2010 03:23 PM by OttoH | 1 comment »

Well what was supposed to be a 34 day hiatus turned out to be an 84 day ordeal. It seemed that one business trip lead to another, then another, then another . . . and 84 days later, I am back home for a while and able to get back into the shop. I was only able to get on LJ’s a couple of times while I was out and have missed catching up with everyone terribly. Today I have to take care of all those little things around the house that popped up while I was out and Sunday I get to be in my sh...
