Gettin' fixina tune up my Unisaw #2: A few more photos, videos and status report

09-18-2009 02:47 PM by Bothus | 11 comments »

Unisaw serial number label Unisaw motor serial number label I welcome everyone’s comments and suggestions. This is my first Unisaw. It’s my first cabinet saw for that matter. I haven’t a clue what should be done or how to do it but here’s an update. Last night I got on ebay and bought a new set of Delta belts. I saw a lot of link belt advertised but I’ve never tried those so I thought I would stick with the original design for now. Maybe I’ll...

Wall Hung Console #4: Template, planer sled and oops!

09-18-2009 06:44 AM by captkerk | 1 comment »

I decided last night to make my center bracket larger after playing around on SketchUp some more so I started today by getting another sequence-matched board ready to glue onto the existing center bracket. This involved using the planer sled again to flatten the board before planing the other side parallel. The sled is a glue up of 4, 3/4” MDF panels to make a rigid sled that holds the not-so-flat rough board in order to joint the top side flat. The only things needed are some shims ...

Arts & Crafts Night Stands #6: Almost Done!

09-18-2009 04:06 AM by CaptainSkully | 5 comments »

Today, I made the drawers, using a square lock joint on the table saw. It was trickier than I expected. Cutting the ends of the drawer faces 3/4” deep was a bit scary, regardless of feather boards or push sticks. I used poplar instead of oak for the sides and back (because that’s what I had laying around). I also made the dust frames out of plywood rails & stiles that was Kregged together instead of solid panels (because that’s what I had laying around). I used th...

I bought this table saw from my boss for $500. I thought it was the one we used to use before we got the SawStop but he said no that was a bigger 5hp monster. Turns out we bought this one used two years ago and have never even powered it up. Fun stuff.

Shop Projects #1: A Fair Idea Made Better

09-18-2009 02:34 AM by littlecope | 7 comments »

I had finagled this set-up to obtain a “taller” fence on the table saw.While this did work, it left much to be desired, and today I took a few minutes to make a more permanent solution. It couldn’t be simpler…I quickly gave the same drawer fronts used in the temporary set-up a rough sanding, then marked approximately where I wanted bolts with chalkI then bored out some shallows for the bolt headsThen clamped up the two sides in preparation for drillingAll that was left...

Change of mind..

09-18-2009 02:13 AM by RBWoodworker | 7 comments »

Ok.. I was asking about the Davis and Wells 20” bandsaw which I was about to purchase.. but I sat down and asked myself, just what do I need in my shop that I DO NOT have.. I have a delta 14” bandsaw which is like brand new but yet I have had it for about 15 years and use it alot..(I really go overboard when taking care of my machines) Anyways.. I know I have always regretted not having a Lathe.. I passed up an opportunity years ago to buy a beautiful Delta Lathe with an indexi...

The American Craftsman WorkShop #9: New Shop Lighting

09-17-2009 05:30 PM by Todd A. Clippinger | 28 comments »

Bright Light! Bright Light! Over the last couple of days I added lights to brighten the shop. Shop Light Envy After seeing the lights in Les Hasting's shop I was motivated to install more lights in my own. There is nothing like shop envy to motivate a guy. The Original Lighting The original lighting situation in my shop was poor and inadequate. I had three 4’x4’ units with 6 bulbs over the assembly and finish area. There was only one of these 4’x4’ l...

The woodwork, a lesson for live.

09-17-2009 04:15 PM by Rotceh | 4 comments »

Carpentry It was a gathering of tools to resolve their differences. Hammer held the presidency, but the assembly was notified that he had to resign. The cause? It was too noisy! And besides, he spent his time hitting. Hammer accepted his guilt, but also requested that the screw had been removed, said he had to give many turns to do something. Before the attack, the screw also accepted, but in turn ordered the expulsion of the sandpaper. He pointed out that it was very harsh in his deali...
