Model Bell 407 helicopter project #5: Cutting the body open.

03-16-2012 02:57 AM by Ryan Haasen | 4 comments »

So fo the past while I have been sanding the body to shape. I was also doing anything I could to avoid facing the challenge of cutting the body apart. I was afraid of doing so because it is not a cheap chunk of wood, and also all the effort put into getting the shape correct shape made it more special. Then one day I decided it had to be done and I did it. And that new bandsaw got quite the workout. It did go better then I expected with the minor flaw here and there. after the walls were ...

Electric Bass Guitar.. #2: Contouring... or shaping the body...

03-15-2012 07:05 AM by degoose | 19 comments »

As you will see from the following pics the back of the body of the guitar blank has been scarfed out with the bandsaw.. this is for comfort when the guitar is tilted out from the guitarist When played the contour would be at the back of the guitar and to the top… I know I am preaching to the choir but some of my readers are even less knowledgeable than me… Using a ROS and 80 grit the contour is smoothed and shaped for comfort… Sanding willcontinue through to 220 grit....

Marking Gauge #1: Getting started

03-13-2012 06:03 PM by Chuck | 1 comment »

While sorting through the free wood I picked up last week I had the idea to make marking gauge and set a few pieces of walnut aside for it. I cut out the marking gauge with the band saw and then planed the faces smooth. I used a drill and cleared most the waste before chiseling out the mortise for the beam to go through. It needs a little fine tuning on the fit. I am going to have to make sure that the beam is square with both faces I plan on using a xacto knife blade instead of th...

Stanley No: 40 Brace- Refurbishment #1: My Stanley No: 40 Brace

03-12-2012 09:20 PM by Johnnyblot | 22 comments »

This is a photo taken with my iPhone of the brace being refurbished. I’m really just getting to grips with downloading using the iPhone and Photobucket?? Hopefully it is successful? OMG it works! In this pic you get a closer look at the chuck body- This is held in a ‘cheapo’ vice I bought from ‘ALDI’ (Wal-Mart, but even cheaper, to our American cousins) years ago. It is very handy cos you can adjust it to suit what you are doing. It originally had...

bandsaw motor

03-08-2012 06:57 PM by splinterfinger | 0 comments »

Concerning Jet bandsaw motor ( one and a half horse): Why anyone would put a motor with no reset or overload protection in any woodworking machine is beyond me. Unfortunately, I was too stupid to think that just a couple seconds of binding would blow the windings. Have less than two or three hours on my 16 incher and it is pure toast—-out of warranty of course. I feel confident I can make ANY replacement work, no matter frame or shaft incompatability. “Buyer Beware” sho...

Hello again! First off let me apologize for the absence of posts lately. I have had a severe case of Lifus Interuptus and with one thing leading to a BaZillion others I have been unable to sit down and put thoughts to screen, even now my Newfoundland is trying to see how much drool can fit in a keyboard. So sorry and hopefully the posts will be a little more regular for a while. Sssoooo… let us begin with the fun part of this project. Cutting the gears out. I am splitting th...

This will be a bed. (I hope!) #2: Rough cuts / rough parts / glue everywhere / and a baby

03-03-2012 02:33 AM by LucasinBC | 0 comments »

Wow it’s been a solid month and a half since my last blog entry and I still have no bed. But I do have a new baby and I can say that for a good four weeks or so my time in the shop has been minimal. That being said I have been able to finish rough cutting everything and complete putting together the four legs for the bed. Some notes on my progress: I finally got all the wood I needed and rough cut it all. Here it is all on my workbench. This actually wound up taking me lon...
