This week in urban logging #16: Walnut milling (ugly old log)

05-02-2011 07:33 PM by Daren Nelson | 13 comments »

Some times I just can’t (and shouldn’t) do this. That was nice straight logs, grade sawn. When I get an ’’ugly’’ one I like to saw it out live edge. Decide how to lay it on the mill to get the best cuts is step one. 6/4 table top slabs… 8/4 live edge slabs… Kinda heavy fresh sawn 24’’-27’’ wide and I am 6’2’’ for scale. I couldn’t live edge the whole log aft...

Cummins Mack Bandsaw Cleaning and Tune Up #1: A new, to me, band saw

04-27-2011 02:02 PM by nobuckle | 2 comments »

Not long ago I made a blog entry inwhich I discussed the furture purchase of a band saw. Allow me to thank all those who added their insightful thoughts and suggestions. I would have liked to purchase a brand new band saw but that just wasn’t going to happen. So, back to Craig’s List I went. As I searched CL I came across a listing for a 14” Wood Band Saw. What I discovered is that the band saw was a Cummins Mack 14” band saw. The seller was asking $100. I cont...

Trying to decide - Looking to buy a new bandsaw

04-16-2011 04:40 PM by nobuckle | 12 comments »

Recently I have been looking at buying a new bandsaw. My current 14” Shopcraft bandsaw has performed pretty well but it has it’s limits. One frustration with the Shopcraft is finding blades for it. 70-1/2” blades are not the most readily available. There are several brands that I have considered, Rigid, Porter Cable, and Central Machinery. Ideally I would like a Delta but Woodcraft is the only place I can get it and they want more than $600. I can’t do that. T...

When I pulled this off of my cabinet, I did not expect so many would like to build these. Well, I took one apart so that we could make some notes – and then detail construction. Below: The marshmallow catapult in it’s finished form. As you can see below, the catapult concists of only 6 wooden parts & some miscellaneous hardware, all easy to build with handtools if need be. When we did this project with the scouts, we put it together as a kit that they could sand &#...

(I also love a deal)So, here is some of what I got I know what your thinking, those are not Beavers, that&#...

Tool Mods #1: Ridgid Bandsaw Tire Replacement

04-12-2011 02:25 AM by AmandasHusband | 5 comments »

Having sold my tablesaw to my dad and not having 220 (for my new tablesaw) in my garage yet, I’m at a standstill. Project wise that is. So I figured this would be a good time to tinker around with my bandsaw. I bought it in late November and haven’t used it all that much. I have some mdf set aside to stiffen up the stand. And I replaced the belt a couple months ago. Took the old one into Advance and had the boy match it. That took quite a bit of shake out. Next up is t...
