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...

Wooden Gear Clock #3: Cutting the Wooden Gears Part 1

03-06-2012 05:31 PM by avgjay | 3 comments »

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...

Canoe Paddle #1: Starting to Make A Canoe Paddle

02-29-2012 06:02 PM by Bagtown | 8 comments »

Well, this is such a great and giving site, I thought I should contribute a little. So here you go. There’s still plenty of snow out on the lake but we’re only about 6 weeks away from open water on the lake and rivers around here. I’ve made a few paddles in the past, and this is how I make them. Nothing too fancy here, mostly handtools and lots of sweat. This is a very satisfying project, and it’s really not too difficult. There are no mating parts, no dovetail, no ...

Blacker House Chair #1: Shaping the back leg.

02-25-2012 04:36 AM by Jeff Waggoner | 1 comment »

Where possible we used one leg to mark out the other. He then cut to that line on the band saw and smoothed it back to the line with a variety of hand tools. To get the twist in the leg that it needed to meet the crest rail he cut to a line on the top and was careful to hold it at an angle so as not to cut into it at the bottom. This established the two edges with a bump in the middle. He them covered that area with yellow chalk and tried to plane, scrap, spok...
