Getting started.

04-20-2010 04:53 AM by Builder_Bob | 3 comments »

I recently finished building a federal style card table loosely patterned after the plan in FWW issue #59, “Federal Card Table” by Michael Dunbar. That table in turn is based on a piece from the period, thought to be from Baltimore. I still consider myself a newbie, and was shocked at how well the finished table came out! Now I’m going to make a second table with a few improvements. If you’d like to follow along I can promise you that we will take an interesting and unconve...

Bandsaw Restoration #4: Another Short Update, and Why I Hate Spray Paint

04-18-2010 06:25 AM by Jimi_C | 10 comments »

So, I thought everything was going along great, things were looking good… then this happened on several pieces after spray painting after the primer coat: It appears the paint isn’t adhearing to the metal there, despite the fact that I washed these pieces in my dishwasher to clean them off, and sanded them to remove loose paint/scuff up the surface. Anyone know what I’m doing wrong? Maybe I didn’t clean the surface enough after sanding? It seems the paint i...

New Tool - Part 2 - The Tax Return

04-16-2010 07:07 PM by Kerry Drake | 9 comments »

At the end of last year I was kind of hoping that our tax return would be enough to let me buy a new big ticket tool for my workshop (I define “big ticket” as over $200.00). I knew I wanted to that tool to be a bandsaw, the question was really WHICH bandsaw to get. I googled, I did searches on You Tube, I visited manufacturers websites, I posted questions in woodworking forums. I created a comparison chart of 15 different band saws from 10 different manufacturers, comparing r...

Bandsaw Restoration #3: Quick Update

04-16-2010 03:09 PM by Jimi_C | 4 comments »

Progress is continuing on the restoration, I’m grabbing an hour here or there to work on it. The bottom axle was pretty easy to remove after all – a block of wood and a rubber mallet got it out ok. The only stubborn part was the woodruff key on the end of the axle that (of course) had to be removed for the axle to come out. I had to mangle it a little to get it out, but I think it will be ok. If not, I’ll just order a new one from McMaster-Carr. That one damn bearin...

Bandsaw Restoration #2: Progress, at last

04-10-2010 05:25 AM by Jimi_C | 8 comments »

Now that the temperatures are slowly but surely starting to climb again, I’m finally able to work in my garage again for more than 5 minutes. In addition to my table project, I’ve started working on restoring the Power King 912 in December. I’ve been slowly but surely striping off pieces, but had run into a road block with the wheels… the bearings were stuck solid. Someone on LJ (Grizzman?) suggested I look into getting a gear puller, so Harbor Freight to the resc...

Bandsaw boxes #2: Tiger Tiger

04-07-2010 03:47 PM by BritBoxmaker | 11 comments »

Outside my comfort zone again. This is my second experiment with the bandsaw and patterns. Materials are Yew and Ebony. The patterns are about 50×120mm and 7mm thick. They’re more like Tiger and Anti-Tiger as one is obviously the negative of the other. Can’t make my mind up whether to make two individual boxes or slap them together lengthways to make one long pattern for something like a pencil box. Front sideBack sideSide by side Or I could slice them through ...

Jet BandSaw #1: Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS

04-04-2010 08:31 AM by LarryDNJR | 4 comments »

I went a little out of town today south of Columbus to Circleville here in Ohio to a place called Grandview Weekend Outlet that my folks had told me about. It is kind of like a big lots/odd lots liquidation outlet store. I was going through the hardware/tool section when I happened upon a busted open cardboard box that ended up being a Jet 707200 10Inch Band Saw With Stand Model JWBS-10OS. Sticker on it had it listed at $95.00. I initially tried to haggle with the guy starting at $70.00 h...
