home made over arm dust collection #1: Assembly instructions for my over arm dust collection.

08-15-2010 04:57 AM by ABrown | 8 comments »

Bear with me this is my first blog. I’ve had a few comments on my homemade over arm dust collection on my Ridgid tablesaw. First off I’ll tell you why I made it, I was just plain tired of being covered up with saw dust when I used the saw. Now I’ll tell you how I made it and give you some part #’s in case you want to make one for yourself. Here’s parts you will need:One T-connetor Rockler#88527I had some 4” flex hose laying around, in case you don’...

Extremely Average #223: Very little woodworking in tonight's post.

08-15-2010 04:49 AM by Ecocandle | 2 comments »

Hello All, This weekend was my 25th high school reunion. Tonight’s post is a bit different. I sort of wrote it for me. I don’t know if it is worth a read or not. http://bit.ly/bOD0hU Brian

Potato cannon carriage #5: Forward armor

08-15-2010 04:07 AM by JJohnston | 9 comments »

First, I didn’t like the way the ramrod just stuck out of its tube, as shown in part 3, so I made a longer one that fits the rod completely. I put a small eye screw with a keyring in the end of the rod so I can fish it out. The tube now has a cap on both ends; I put a light chain on the access cap to keep it from getting dropped or lost. I’m not super happy with how chunky the forward tube bracket is. Now I’m starting on the armor plating. The “armor” is 1/...

Beginning Woodworker Just Starting Out #7: I injured myself on a SawStop today...

10-04-2013 06:35 PM by Jimi_C | 10 comments »

Go figure. I was at the local Woodcraft, picking up some stuff for my dust collection setup when I noticed a SawStop in the back – so I thought I’d check it out for a bit, not really having a chance to when I’d been in the store before (I usually hit it on my lunch break, since it’s around the corner from my work). I had read that it had a tool-less riving guard, so I popped the ZCI out and poked around, seeing that it has a twist lever for release. The force to use...

Not quite in the workshop... #24: Fence Framing is done! Gave the nailer a good workout!

08-15-2010 12:56 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

I set the miter saw and compressor up under my big oak tree in the back yard, and just started measuring, cutting, and nailing, and before I knew it, I went from having a fence with just the top rail installed, to having the framing completed. I also have the top and bottom pieces for the gate cut out and ready to go, next is the uprights, and then a two cross bars, those should be plenty easy though. Pre made gate hardware brackets sure will make this an easy task… I still need to get...

Buying sandpaper

08-15-2010 12:55 AM by BoxBuilder | 2 comments »

Just want to share a good experience in buying sandpaper goods. I want to Gettysburg to visit an old friend & while there I stopped in at Red Hill Corporation. They sell mostly abrasives & have one helluva big shop full to the rafters. I bought & have used some of their materials with great satisfaction. Good prices. E.g., 3×21 sanding belts 10 for $10. 5inch PSA discs $21 for 100. If anyone needs to contact they can be reached at www.supergrit.com. E-mail – redhill@su...

shopsmith #2: Did my first turning with my shopsmith

08-14-2010 08:20 PM by Joe Watson | 0 comments »

I started my first turning. I am making a wood mallet for myself. took a laminated block of maple and started cutting away. i so far just have the head most of the way done. next is to make a handle. one question i have for all the shopsmith guys who might know the ER well. how are you supposed to move the belts the manual isnt real clear? It states that you move the belt to each pulley but doesnt state how. I am curious if there is an easy way to do this?
