'54 Craftsman TS Restore Project

05-21-2009 04:56 PM by Neodogg | 13 comments »

Well, I was able to dig my grandpa’s old TS out of his shop which has been dormant for the better part of 30 yrs. and drag it to Ohio It is a 1954 Craftsman 1 HP 10” left tilting contractor TS. Here it is after getting off the truck. The inside shot shows how they used to make them to last, all cast iron & aluminum. It was going to need some TLC, I started by removing the saw from the base and started to sand everything. After sanding every...

I sure don’t want to come back and say “Thanks for all the suggestions, but oh well! I shattered the entire thing in a big kickback!” It also really drives me to keep working when I might otherwise say “Meh, I’ll finish that part tomorrow, or this weekend.” So thank...

First Day

05-21-2009 01:30 PM by Nick | 3 comments »

Well thanks everyone for the hearty welcome. I’m a bit of a beginner to woodworking but I think I’m getting better already. Started off with a nice simple shelf, always a must have anyways. Built myself my first table for my 10 gallon fish tank that sits at the end of my bed. Then my bed, built myself a nice sturdy loft. I had no room in my apartment so I had to sneak my desk under my bed. Nothing is quite as sturdy or nice compared to what my grandfather used to make but then aga...

Handicap cabinet for a little girl #1: Linear actuators and the build

05-21-2009 04:22 AM by dryhter | 5 comments »
