When you need pipe clamps, they’re great, and they need to be handy – but when you need them only occasionally, they can really get in the way! Hanging them vertically works well provided you have a vertical space available. Unfortunately, I didn’t, so yesterday’s project was a horizontal rack hung near the ceiling. The rack’s not elegant, and it’s certainly not pretty – but then neither are pipe clamps. The main thing is – it works! ...
During the construction of a project there is often a need for organizing and storing parts. This is obvously a temporary need because as the work progresses, you construct parts and then assemble them. I like to use a 4’ scaffold as a mobile cart to store and organize the parts that I have made. I bought my scaffold for $99 although I have noticed that the price has risen on them over the last couple of years. It comes with steel platform shelves to stand on and I used plywoo...
I am curious what is the name of the tool used to lessen the vibration while turning spindles ( or long pieces ). Is there any good designs for a home made one?
So, where did I leave off? Oh yeah, we just finished laying out where the butt hing is going to be mortised in. Now we need to do the actual mortising. This can actually be fun! well as long as the mortising chisel is sharp and nothing goes wrong, for example mortising in the wrong spot, or crooked or cracking the door frame. Which brings me to my next point. We need to put a clamp on the area we are going to be working on, or else our beautiful, perfectly fitting, emaculately joined d...
Recently I built and I’m now painting my SawStop and Router Cabinet. Some LJs asked about how I was able to avoid having a hose jet out from the back of my router fence to control the dust above the table here are some pictures of how I directed the dust from the top of the table down into the rear of my two-chamber router box and then out the back of my cabinet. I hope these pictures show you my idea around this. I hope this helps to those who wanted to know. Here’s a link ...
Sitting in the twenty-fourth row, seat 3, I prepare to watch the Iowa State Cyclones take on the Missouri Tigers in women’s basketball. To those who don’t follow NCAA division I women’s basketball, the Cyclones are one of the top programs in the country. They are consistently in the top 20, and are currently ranked 13th. When attending an ISU game, be it men or women’s basketball, one is sure to be impressed by ‘Hilton Magic’. The magic comes from the boisterous cheers of the fans, wh...
On the way to restoring an older 12” King-Seely bandsaw, I ran across this Rockwell (Delta) model 28-200 open stand 14” bandsaw born in 1980 or 81. Thanks MedicKen for helping with the date. I bought it off the local CL, and probably paid a few $$ more than I should have. Such is life. 14” bandsaws like this don’t come up to often in these parts. It had been neglected and oversprayed with paint, more than twice. The overspray was so thick, I couldn’t find t...
didn’t get as much done as i wanted to today. looks like Eli might be taking the lead on his table… haha alright. today i did some work on the feet. for the feet i am going to be going with pad feet. Right now i have extra material at the bottom just to leave myself room to work with on the feet. so here we go. i started off by cutting out my feet with all of the angles and everything. getting the angles was as simple as setting my piece of wood over the drawing in the position...
