Secrets of the String Box Revealed #5: Cutting Corners

08-28-2010 04:48 AM by newTim | 5 comments »

Now that the sides are cut to length all we have to do is put a 45 degree angle on each end. The idea is to preserve the face of each side to ensure the lines come together at the corners. I just screw a board to a miter square to prevent tear out and to clamp a stop. The pictures below show that the lines not only match on the outside corners, but also the inside. Be sure to save the cut off corners. They will match the lines on the inside of the box and can be glued to reinforce the co...

08-28-2010 02:17 AM by dustbunny | 17 comments »

A while back there was a discussion about storage under the Central Machinery lathe.I posted pics of a box I built under the lathe in the frame of the legs. I am currently shut down on production to expand, organize, and set my Torque Worcentre into action in it’s new found space. I officially moved the husband out of the garage, giving me 12’ x 14’ more floor space. He is still sneaking in to use my tools !! Out Out damn spot !! He won’t go away : ) Anyway, in the...

Sorry about the PINK bearing covers… The guys who are making the covers thought it would be a little bit of fun to make a set in PINK.... I don’t care who you are… that there was funny…Here are the real covers in BLACK ... and as you can see they are embossed with the TORQUE brand..

Getting my garage workshop together #1: Shop Layout Ideas

08-28-2010 12:52 AM by Clemson | 11 comments »

Hi LumberJocks! I’ve just recently joined LJ after being a long-time reader. Thanks to everyone who participates in the discussions here. Your wisdom and experience is invaluable, and you are are generous to take the time to share. You can check out my page to learn more about me and my shop, but in a nutshell I am a fairly amateur woodworker working to set up my 2-car garage into a functional workshop. We’ll keep 1 car in most of the time, and I need to get set up to build ...

Six Advantages of the Dedicated Miter Sled for the Table Saw

08-28-2010 12:20 AM by Bob Simmons | 0 comments »

The advantages of the miter sled:1.) Dead-on accuracy. 2.) Can be used as a cross cut sled.3.) It is very cost effective.4.) In a small shop it can save space and possibly costs by eliminating the need for a chop saw or typical miter saw. 5.) The miter sled can easily be built within a few hours and be ready for immediate usage.6.) It may save the woodworker from unnecessarily buying an expensive miter guage. The above is an excerp from the Dedicated Miter Sled...revisited. To learn mo...

And so the journey to a new shop begins.....#3

08-28-2010 12:05 AM by lilredweldingrod | 9 comments »

August 27, 2010…..Got a hitch in the git-a-long….Today I took a contractor friend to look the house over. I’m very glad I did. There are over $22,000.00 in repairs to be made before we could move in. And since every thing must be 100% for this USDA farm loan, it is a no go. Problem No.1…Two septic systems one new for the addition and the original is a pig in a polk.No.2…At one time the house was 4 apartments. Additions are hodge-podge additions.No.3…No H...

A journey into the workshop. #63: Some cleanup, and looking up at my ceiling...

08-27-2010 04:05 PM by dbhost | 6 comments »

In the process of moving the lumber out of the shop for the fence, I have been doing some desperately needed cleanup, and it amazes me how much, not wood shop related stuff is out of place in my shop. Thus far I have cleaned out or organized the following. #1. Busted radiator, hoses, and clamps off of my Saturn SL2. #2. 8 80# bags of QuickCrete. I am missing 2 in the shop somewhere. #3. A single busted 16 foot piece of Hardisoffit, solid, Cedar mill texture. #4. Shipping box for the Golds...

Another day at MSWT

08-27-2010 03:12 PM by Rustic | 5 comments »

Yesterday I spent the day as an apprentice at Mike’s school of woodturning (jockMike2 for those who didn’t know). The last visit I had talked about making mallet. Well yesterday was that day. Mike, as always was very helpful. I originaly wanted to make it out of walnut, but the piece we found was extremely difficult to cut. So I opted for a piece of maple. Boy am I happy with the way it turned out. I bow to the master LOL Justkidding Mike. And no I did not get into trouble.
