1875 days ago by Junji | 9 comments »

Here are more pictures from Kumamoto, Kyushu. This is another Soba reastaurant. You can see the roof/cealing is so high. This is the room we are staying. The tradisional Japanese style. No beds. We put futon at night on the tatami mat. And this is “Tokonoma”, where you suposed to display arts, but you see, they also puts TV and heater… This is where I went today. Deep deep mountaion area, Itsuki village where the country tries to build a huge Dam. So the...

A Unique Leg Leveler Idea

1876 days ago by David | 8 comments »

My most recent project, a fine-art print bin made of wild Oregon cherry, has a set of small leg levelers on the back legs to accommodate an uneven floor. The system uses a deeply imbedded 10-24 brass threaded insert and a long 10-24 allen-head cap screw tipped with a vinyl thread protector. If some stability is needed for an uneven floor it is a simple matter of turning the head of the cap screw. The vinyl tip protects the floor from scratches. Hope this provides some inspiration for a leg le...

shop upgrades #3: Motor upgrade for the bandsaw

1876 days ago by Julian | 4 comments »

I just picked up a 1 1/2 hp 1740 rpm motor from a friend today for $30. It’s a VERY clean old Doerr brand motor made in Cedarburg, Wisconsin. After rewiring it to run in reverse, I installed it into my rigid 14” bandsaw that has a 6” riserblock, and many carter upgrades. Let me say that the saw is a totally different beast now! With the underpowered stock 3/4 HP motor, a very slow feed rate was needed to resaw tall stock. Now it breezes through 10” rock maple withou...

Delta Homecraft Table Saw

1876 days ago by Pie | 3 comments »

A buddy of mine gave me this saw cuz he bought a brand new Jet for about $1k. He didn’t want this one so I went over his house and he showed it to me. Yup, it was old and heavy like he said but and I couldn’t wait to take it home to try it out. I own a Hitachi Job site saw and it work good for the price but this old one works better. It has a pulley and the motor starts and stops pretty quick. I need to update the vac port but other than that it is a nice find for free.
