Shopsmith Vs Delta 46-460 Lathe Rev 1 After years of research I decided to add to my tool collection a Mark V shopsmithwith several updates like extended table, Table legs Band Saw and Jointer. During this past 2 weeks I have been working in the Restoration or cleaning of my Shopsmithand now it was time to put it to the test As a Pen Turner the important thing are : Accurate Drill Press and Flexibility power and speed controlon the lathe plus several other variables The Delta 46-4...
I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...
My blog site ( www.chuckinwood.com ) has been doing a series on “Little Woodworker” projects. We used the last project to start making videos with. This one is more or less a test of our video making ability, so its kind of basic but does demonstrate making a wood and wire basket with one of our Little Woodworkers. In the future we’ll be tackling more projects such as the complete remodel of my shop… Thanks for watching Kevin
Can you post for sale ads on LumberJocks? I’ve decided to sell my Ridgid bandsaw. It’s been on Craig’s List for a few days, but I’m not willing to let it go for a song and a dance. It’s an excellent tool, and I’m loathe to part with it, but I’ve gotten into a situation where I’m faced a tough decision. It’s a Ridgid BS14002 with some modifications to fix the recent lack of quality control. The upper wheel was extremely out of balanc...
Recently I purchased a Steam Bending Kit from Rockler Woodworking and Hardware so I could try out some Steam Bending. Bending wood is something I have never tried before and is out of my comfort zone. I wanted to dive into this area of woodworking and challenge myself as well as learn something new. So of the various forms of wood bending (Laminated Bending, Milled Bending, Steam Bending) I chose steam bending to be my first attempt. The kit I purchased included the reservoir, hose, and so...
I’ll be hopping in the car and driving out to beautiful Franklin, Indiana tomorrow (Sunday) morning to attend two classes next week at Marc Adams’ School of Woodworking. First, I am in a 6-day long project class in which I will be building an arts-and-crafts style entry table. Then I will take a one-day class on tool sharpening skills. Both classes will be taught by Mike Pekovich of Fine Woodworking Magazine. I’m excited about the opportunity to add to my skills and make...
You might say I’m a bit router-phobic and handsaw challenged. I needed to find a way to use my bandsaw to cut dovetails for a set of small boxes I’m making. Calling this a jig is a little bit of an exaggeration; I cut a wedge with a `1:7 slope from a 6” 2 X 4. I also added a fence on the blade side of my bandsaw miter gauge. The wedge laying on the flat rectangular face with one triangular face square against the miter gauge fence makes a ramp on which to lay th...
The closest I’ve come to working on 816 is walking through the shop on the way to work. I did have a surprise the day after I registered my PDR in that the other Manitoban who has a PDR emailed me and introduced himself. Turns out we are only about an hour away from each other. Serendipitiously he was to do an interview that same day with a local radio station to try and stir up some interest in wooden boats. Apparently his hull (#500) is still serviceable and it sounds like he real...
My Small Business: Spud Wood Works #12: Growth, Learning how to sell, and my First Business Photoshoot!
Hello All, Been awhile, and I really want to keep up with my blogs here on lumberjocks so here goes another. Spud (or I) has (or “have” if you assume I) been buying a lot of new tools to expand my business line and so far its been more spending money than making, but that’s the short term plan anyhow… I think. Other than expanding my (or Spud’s) tools and products its seems like I have been getting a crash course in sales 101. What makes my product diffe...
