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...
Day three of my lumberjacks blog ( when I typed blog, it came up red, I had to add it to my dictionary that’s how much out of main stream I am, its not a word but one of the most used ways for people to communicate and about what we are doing. Wow, here I am in Costa Rica having casual communication with people from all over the world.I haven’t found all the buttons yet but as soon as I can I will find a way to show you my photos. of the log and how it is to live here. I will be seventy on...
I have to say, posting projects as I do them does two things. I puts the pressure on me to not screw up, after getting great comments from you folks about how to proceed through difficult parts. 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...
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...

Well here we are week 5 and I am way behind schedule, but whatever I am having a blast and really bonding with other woodworkers. This week was all about biscuit joints and pocket hole joinery needless to say I tuned out in the first 3 minutes and started to watch the crowed that was gathering outside of the studio. The shop were this class is held is within a building which houses two auditoriums and there was a dance recital tonight so at the intermission we were the centre of attent...
Earlier this year I had the opportunity to bid a cabinet for a handicap little girl. This was my solution to her problem. The problems as I saw them was how to get the step stabilized when in use and how to make the steps easy to use. I believe the actuators solved those problems nicely. Anybody wanting to incorporate linear actuators into a project just give me a shout and I would be happy to talk with you and tell all.
