Table Saw Upgrade #4: Powering a 5HP Monster with Single Phase Power

02-19-2011 04:34 AM by MikeGCNY | 6 comments »

So, just as I suspected, the 66 came with a fairly new 5 horse 3 phase Baldor motor. (Yeah Me!) I was able to figure this out by calling Baldor’s customer service and reading them through the different numbers on the motor plate. As it turns out, the motor is only 2 years old. The saw is 22. As many of you know from reading other posting on Lumberjocks, there are several options to consider when your shop simply has single phase power and your machinery requires 3 phase power. The ...

Chessboard #2: Drawers and Posts

02-19-2011 04:28 AM by CartersWhittling | 2 comments »

Today I got off work early and the weather was +10 so I spent some time in the garage. I dovetailed the maple drawer and got the second walnut corner post turned. I had also glued up the 8 board stripes last night so I did some flattening to the board to prepare it to be crosscut. The dovetails turned out good on one side, but on the other I have some gaps so I might put some shims in at glue up. I have the drawer bottoms planed to thickness but still have not decided for sure if the drawers ...

I need help in deciding what to build next.

02-19-2011 01:35 AM by GaryK | 57 comments »

I am hoping that some of you can make some suggestions on what I should make next. Whatever I make I will do a blog on how I made it. If it’s really involved, maybe a multi part blog. Well, the house is already full of furniture so I can’t make anything big unless I get rid of something. (Very hard to do since I built most of it.) Here’s what I’m looking for: 1. Something I have never made before. 2. Hopefully something unique.3. Something that will expand my ...

Deep Water Questions #1: Table saw dilemmas

02-19-2011 06:55 AM by kowtow | 10 comments »

I’m pretty new at this, I worked in a shop last year that had the best of everything right at your fingertips. Festool power tools, a 22” planer, two cabinet saws, three 14” bandsaws, a 24” bandsaw, a 12” jointer. A dust collection system that sucked every ppm of wood dust right out of the shop. When I left, I took my hand tools. And my desire to build a comparable shop, and I moved to Southern Kentucky. Now, I’m getting there. I have a workbench a...

Popular Woodworking Magazine (who have the rights?) is that really ok?

02-18-2011 09:00 PM by mafe | 67 comments »

Popular Woodworking Magazinebe careful with readers contributions, ‘Tricks of the trade’. Hi LJ’s. I have an experience I want to share with you; unfortunately I can’t say it was a good one, but not the end of the world either… All of you, who know me here on LJ, probably know I’m not a complaining kind of person. Some months ago I was contacted by Popular Woodworking Magazine (PWM), they asked if they could bring one of my posts here on LJ in the magazi...

Omega

02-18-2011 06:57 PM by BritBoxmaker | 20 comments »

This is my latest and possibly last foray into the world of miniature box making. Hence the name Omega, the last letter in the greek alphabet. I am posting this as a blog as I am extremely nervous about how the separation cut will go and I want a record of it in case anything goes wrong. If all goes well this will be posted as a project. If not then this is it!..This picture shows the sides, top and bottom material and the lipping (if I get that far)The sides (I always make spares) are 8.5mm ...
