Unisaw upgrade #1: Part 1

10-12-2009 01:13 AM by hairy | 11 comments »

How do you pickup a tablesaw by yourself? Here’s what I did. The mobile base was a piece of trash when I bought this. The former owner said he had nothing but trouble with it. I replaced the lift caster, and it almost worked, but didn’t last. I finally went and got the Rockler all terrain mobile base,and the B set of extensions. I cut a 4×4 in half, and placed them crossways under the table...

Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #4: Tuning up, and a tiny project done, with an outrageous time expenditure......, I'll never learn

10-12-2009 12:35 AM by Jim Bertelson | 3 comments »

I was hoping to be further along this weekend in my quest to become a real woodworker. You know, real woodworkers have real shops…..... And I was going to talk about my plans for the real shop…that’s what real woodworkers do…I know…I have learned that on Lumberjocks. Well, just like when I found out I needed a new radial arm saw table, shop maintenance took precedence. That project, where I was forced to retune the radial arm saw, brought to mind some basic need...

Hip, Hip, Hoorayyy! I’ve been a Lumberjock 3 + years today. Gosh, where has time gone. I got to tell you all this, I can’t think of one person on this site I dislike. This is the GREATEST BUNCH OF PEOPLE I’VE EVER BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH. I mean that from the bottom of my heart. You all are the greatest. I feel like I’m apart of a huge family and I already have 7 brothers and sisters. I don’t want to single out any certain people, but you know who you are, you have ...

I built this fold down outfeed talbe about two years ago and it still going strong. I give the design credit to Jim Becker at He provides a plan sheet on his website. I did modify his design a bit to suite my needs. This is what I had in mind when I started to think about the project. I just happened upon Jim’s site, and I’m glad I did. He attached the OFT using 45 degree supports attached to the back of his TS, to eliminate those pesk...
