Bandsaw Modifications

07-13-2007 06:40 PM by Karson | 10 comments »

My bandsaw is an 18” Taiwan version. Grizzly had a similar version a few years ago. The saw works great. My first problem is dust collection. It’s a sweep it up off the floor. Have to find something to do for that. The next problem is when you lay your hand on the right side of the table, it tends to go off of 90 degrees. You can tighten it as much as you want but it still moves. I took the table top off. On the right is a bolt that you move up and down to set the tabl...

'Written In and By Wood" --by RusticWoodArt

07-13-2007 02:45 PM by frank | 3 comments »

Written In and By Wood ....and so I capped the ending of last evening with a short walk in the woods, short walking is not like waundering and means I was only gone for about two hours, but then that also includes about an hour of just sitting in silence and hearing what the forest had to say. On the subject of ‘waundering’ let me just add, that all who waunder are not lost, but then some also ‘waunder’ as having slipped the veil….explanation, well maybe in an...

Pen Turning #1: Intro to Pen Turning - Part 1

07-13-2007 04:17 AM by WayneC | 24 comments »

Overview There are a number of people who have indicated they would like to know more about what it takes to turn pens. There are quite a few very good pen turners who are members of our community. My intent is go get an overview out there to encourage more people to give it a try. I’m hoping some of the other pen turners will add to this and we can get more people turning. It really is quite simple and very rewarding. What I like about turning pens is the ability to finish a ...

Simple pleasures in life....

07-13-2007 04:15 AM by Greg3G | 10 comments »

After what seemed like an eternity, I was finally allowed to go back into the shop this week. It was like meeting an old friend you hadn’t seen in a long time. “Will he still like me? Will I still like him? and the biggest…Can I still do it, within my limits???” I broke out into a sweat as soon as I walked in the shop….not from the heat but from the nervous anticipation. Not six weeks ago, I basicly had to have my left shoulder rebuilt….I was just short of having to have an artifical inplant....

Entertainment Center #7: Sidebar - Mortise and Tenon Part 1

07-13-2007 03:41 AM by Dano | 4 comments »

Mortise and tenon joints just scare the dickens out of me, the fit requires perfection. Joinery is the epitome of craftsmanship, at least in my book, oh sure down the road with more experience I will probably determine something else to hold in such high esteem but for now, from an inexperience point of view perfect joinery separates the master from the apprentice. With this in mind I try to muster the my spirit to give it a go, just to get started scared me, no formal training, never having ...

Vacuum series #1: Plexiglass Jigs

07-12-2007 09:06 PM by Lee A. Jesberger | 19 comments »

I was thinking whether or not to make this a continuation of the veneering bog, however many items here have more to do with vacuum systems, than veneering. Hence a new Blog! Photo one is a Demilune Hall Table top jig. Photo two is a 30 inch long tee square which we use for biscuiting and routing duties. We make marks on the blue tape, were the biscuits go. When were done we replace the tape. Photo three is an 8” square that we use to biscuit cabinet sides on. P...

Not the forum

07-12-2007 07:24 PM by jockmike2 | 22 comments »

I am sorry for running off at the mouth the other day with my problems, I really do appreciate all the support that I received, it was truly amazing and unexpected. I do have an enlarged prostate and have to go back on the 16th for more tests. I don’t know what to say to you all except thank and God Bless you all. I realized after, this was not the place for me to unload my fears and I apologize for wasting your time for that. Mike
