The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #2: The Before...

02-09-2010 09:11 PM by captkerk | 4 comments »

I thought I’d add some pics of the garage before I decided to do the great reorganization to give you an idea of what I was working with before. This former arrangement was a big compromise in an effort to still park a full size car, full size truck, and a motorcycle in the garage along with my tools. Granted when I decided on this arrangement, I had fewer tools. And I still had the truck (which I still regret getting rid of, but that’s another story altogether). So hereR...

Rescued Wood #18: Name This Wood ?

02-09-2010 06:22 PM by PG_Zac | 12 comments »

A couple of years ago someone gave me a grotty old roof beam from a demolished building. Two days ago I needed a plank as an Alaskan guide rail and this old beam was just the right size, but needed to be cleaned up to give my jig a smooth ride.

J-B Weld

02-09-2010 04:28 PM by richgreer | 20 comments »

Does anyone have any experience with J-B Weld? I have a situation where I want to weld a piece of steel to a piece of cast iron. I don’t own a welder and, even if I rented one, it has been over 40 years since I welded anything. I’m wondering is J-B Weld would work for me. I’ve never used it. I have 2 nice flat surfaces with lots of metal to metal contact and the joint will not be subject to very much stress or vibration.
