Good evening LJ’s this week has been interesting to say the least :) After wrestling with the fact that I needed to rearrange my shop and trying at this getting mostly the west wall SW corner clean and my jointer and my workbench swapped gaining a whopping 8 SQ FT. Hey with 192 SQ FT. space counts!!!! I had a crappy work week our Union sold us out and threw us up under the bus if I may use that vernacular, boss put more on me and my co-worker he is 19 and said this sucks :( The kid has...
Here be the second episode… just some of the tools I have and a quick walk around the shed.
Hello LJ members,The motion to reconsider judgment did not go well. I lost again. This makes twice for the same case that should been settled with just a mediator. I had help with the preparation for the motion to reconsider the judgment, still results in a lose. The person that the court uses for small claims is an unqualified individual to say the least. I went to some lengths to prepare a well thought out defense, which she didn’t even read. I can only come to the conclusion that thi...
Sorry about the PINK bearing covers… The guys who are making the covers thought it would be a little bit of fun to make a set in PINK.... I don’t care who you are… that there was funny…Here are the real covers in BLACK ... and as you can see they are embossed with the TORQUE brand..
Well, after a lot of soul searching and many requests… I finally made a small video introduction… Now you will know what my ugly mug looks like and whether I have an accent or not… depends where in the world you hail from… I suppose…This is the first in what I hope will be a longer series featuring Lazy Larry Woodworks…And the music in the background was purely coincidental … Did not even realise it was playing until after I was editing…LOL
I got an email from http://lumberjocks.com/didierld this person today: didierld. This guy (or girl) is a horrific spammer.. beware do not reply to this guy unless you want to do as I did- tell him to GET OFF THIS SITE. I don’t know how to report this person to the moderator? Could someone either tell me how to report the person so he and she can bug off? Thanks!
For a while now … Torque Workcentres have been involved in making some improvements … one of these involves the re-manufacturing of the bearing covers..This will allow the bearings to run smoothly and have less hassles … keeping the dust from the bearings and the running surface.After several months and many attempts… the bearing covers have been completed…Here is a sneak preview of the covers.. which will be available to all owners of the Torque Workcentre. T...
Things seem to be getting back to normal. The toaster is back to popping and at precisely 6:08 this morning I popped out of bed like normal. It was still quite dark out (as it will be from now on in the mornings I assume) but I was pleased that I seemed to be back on schedule. I never was one for an alarm clock, and I only used one at times when I absolutely, positively needed to get up by a certain time. When I worked outside the home or needed to get the kids to school I used one, but ...
Good evening LJ’s has been a somewhat good week in my shop with the newly acquired Delta Mortiser that arrived on Monday morning :) ( Kinda hard to believe I had this a week already :-P) It blended in with the rest of my tools perfect :) Early this week I was thumbing through an old Delta-gram book and came upon a article on shop layout and said this looked kinda familiar after looking at another book Do-it-yourself manual from the 70’s I realized they were almost the same!! only...
Having dressed all the timber to size… the next job is to make the frame..I use Cope and Stick construction.. also known as Frame and PanelFirst using a Mitre Express and Mitre 2000 gauge with stop attached… all the rails [horizontal parts] were cut to size …. this method ensures accuracy… the Stiles [ or the vertical parts of the frame…] are left over long… this means that a little extra protrudes past the rails… these are called ‘horns’ ...
