Walker Turner restoration #5: Arbor bearing troubles........solution found!!

05-08-2009 08:14 AM by MedicKen | 6 comments »

As part of the COMPLETE restoration of the nice Walker Tuner table saw I have been working on I ran into a little problem with the arbor bearings. I have completely disassembled the saw and have it painted and now its finally time to start putting it back together. I wanted to replace the old arbor bearings with new, sealed ones. The old bearings were open and had to be greased and I want to take that out of the equation. I measured the shaft and the arbor itself and asked a few questio...

Not that this is a huge great idea but I had never thought of it I used to buy shop hand towels and my Ex would say what a waste. So I went to the local thrift store and bought a bunch of old beach towels and cut them up and now she is happy and I get to destroy towels and not feel like I am wasting so much. Every little bit helps these day

Derek's Shop #5: Good news and a little gloom.

05-08-2009 06:20 AM by Derek Lyons | 2 comments »

It’s been a rough week trying to finish a piece I’m under the gun for, it’s got to be ready for my nieces wedding. Being new at this, I’ve made numerous mistakes – and the latest may require a thermonuclear option, I’m making a cutting board, and I gouged it badly when rounding the edges. I’m off to my mentors tomorrow to see if it can be saved, but I fear I may have to take a slice off of two sides. (Sigh.) Ah well. If it were easy, what would...

Bought the wrong stuff, Lacquer insted of Poly. Any one use Lacquer?

05-08-2009 06:19 AM by Pete_Jud | 4 comments »

I went to the hardware store in town yesterday and bought a can of Deft brand Lacquer by mistake instead of poly. I thought I would try deft brand poly instead of the only other satin poly that they had (ACE). I did read the back of the can, and picked up some lacquer thinner to clean the brush. When I bought the thinner I should have thought something was not right. I got it to the shop and got it mixed and started applying. The first thing I noticed was that the VOC’s where much s...

This Ones A Sleeper #1: Asian Inspired Bed

05-08-2009 02:49 AM by Emeralds | 2 comments »

First off, let me say that I started discussion of this project in my blog. I know realize that I should have used this Projects category but at the time I was doing a lot of SketchUp blogging and as things worked out it got posted in my blog just after I began planning it. The design is an amalgam of several pieces I saw and liked and it is to date the largest single piece I’ve attempted. I quickly realized that I had underestimated just about every aspect of the project includi...

Greenhouse #8: Installing the roof

05-08-2009 02:34 AM by Zuki | 8 comments »

Installment #7 was actually done yesterday . . . I just blogged it tonight. This is what we did tonight. It was a little windy and drizzly tonight, however we were determined to get the roof on. I started by attaching two blocks on each side of the roof on the inside. Once the roof is up on the frame these blocks would guide the roof back along the sides. The theory is that it would prevent the roof from sliding off to either side. Theory did actually work in this case. Bolti...

05-08-2009 02:18 AM by Karson | 37 comments »

Well it’s been three happy years since i was joined at the hip with LumberJocks. I just never knew anything like it. But, then what you see now it not what was it was in the beginning. I joined – who knows why. We all signup to some web sites at time and then we never remember where it was that we asked the question. But here Martin would send us an e-mail when anyone posted a reply to our question. Talk about something being unique. Keeping us informed, instead of having to...

Greenhouse #7: Another late one (lots-o- pics)

05-08-2009 01:40 AM by Zuki | 2 comments »

I started this evening’s work right after supper attaching the hinges to the vents. I picked up a couple of pair of cabinet door hinges for $2 a set. I had to do a little chisel work so that they would fit properly. Once again here is the finished roof frame off the floor for easy access. I later regret having it off the floor or at least not having it clamped to the stands. Here I am attaching the plastic to the front. Using the clamps again to hold the plastic ...

THANK YOU ALL!!! One hundred times…THANK YOU!!! When my router went awry…well, I could’ve cried. So many hours of work and I didn’t believe my mother’s gift could be salvaged. I sent out an SOS and boy did you all respond. Your ideas, tips and tricks were amazing but most of all your encouragment left me believing that I could FIX IT! So I headed downstairs and attempted my FIRST EVER patch job. While not perfect I think it’ll look just fine afte...
