A Banding Journey... (Continued...)

Well, Bob got me into Banding… and I thought I’d share what I am doing as the result. This is the first step… To take my Journey, click the following link…My Banding Journey It’s not as good as Bob’s work… but, it’s the best I can do right now… I would appreciate any feedback you can give me. Thank you very much. edit (6-18-11):I have recently finished a fancy Cribbage Board where I used some of this Banding…Very so...

Why I like Vintage Tools #10: Completed Shop

11-12-2010 04:26 AM by brianinpa | 9 comments »

In the last two weeks, I have bought the two pieces of equipment that I have been looking for and now I think my shop is complete as far as vintage power tools are concerned (until I see something else). I have a Rockwell/Delta drill press, but for me it just wasn’t old enough. I walked into the auction house as a way to get away from Trick-or-Treat night. Wasn’t really looking for anything but then I heard this little beauty calling my name: It is a Companion (Com...

Bandsaw upgrade....

10-21-2010 10:41 PM by lilredweldingrod | 8 comments »

Well while I’m waiting to find the new shop, I ran into a problem with my 14 inch Rockwell band saw. 5 inch cedar bogged her down. The original 3/4 hp motor just doesn’t have the ponies to get-r-dun.I was at a yard sale the other day and bought an old air compressor. I had to change the pulley to the smallest one Applied Technologies had for the shaft size, 7/8 inch.The new motor is a 2 hp 120/240v. This ought to make the old girl chew up anything I put to her. Both the old motor ...

A Keychain is Born ~ 8/30/10 ~ With Video

08-30-2010 10:29 AM by dustynewt | 9 comments »

I must apologize for my lack of interaction here on LumberJocks. I am on the night shift at the paper mill and my neighbors don’t dig the 2:30 am woodworking bit, so I have been limited to my keychain work and ya’ll have seen that. It is my night off and I remembered a couple requests a while back to do a blog on my keychain process. So, here ‘tis! I hope the video comes out right. I’ve been experimenting with my CoolPix. Short videos? I can do that! So I decided to...

Tool Gloatings

08-01-2010 08:19 PM by wellington | 8 comments »

I’m still pretty new out here, but I really enjoy the concept of the ‘tool gloat’, so I’ve decided to partake. This is (most of) my shop… It’s perpetually in a complete disaster state, but I suppose that’s a good thing… means that things are getting done. We’ll start the tour at the most terrifying thing in the place… the 14” table saw… This, like pretty much everything else in here, was acquired by my dad about...

Tools #1: Cheapo Skil band saw - works good

03-08-2010 08:43 PM by Lisa Chan | 9 comments »

I have limited amount of space at the moment, and I’m also poaching some real estate in the shared garage with my landlord for the wood working toys. It’s sort of damp, cramped, and a bit of a nightmare. I couldn’t realistically expect that things wouldn’t get stolen out of there either. That meant that it didn’t make a lot of sense to save up a ton of money and invest in the nicest largest tools that I would never want to part with. I would like to someday ha...

Works for me #5: Adjustable Bandsaw Sled

03-07-2010 10:12 PM by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

This adjustable bandsaw sled works on the same principle as a taper sled for a table saw. I initially designed it for quick and accurate repetitive cuts on the toy racer shown below, but it works great for any kind of angled cuts on the bandsaw. I believe it will also work well for shorter tapered legs, although I haven’t tried it for that yet. The body of the sled is 3/4” MDF, and the fence and stop are made from scraps of Phenolic-faced plywood. The anchor bolt for the...

The Wavy Larry- my jig

01-12-2010 04:12 AM by dustbunny | 18 comments »

I’ve had several LJ’s request pics of the jig I made for the wavy Larry board. I’ve snapped a few pics and sent PM’s with bits and pieces of info individually. Mikethetermite asked for some info a few days ago and I decided to bit the bullet and take the time to do it as a blog. Here goes- On my band saw table I have a sacrificial board- 3/4” plywood squared and framed to the table. The back frame piece unscrews and swings up to put the board on and off the ta...
