Piping Up #3: When all else fails, chisel

06-13-2014 06:50 PM by sylinen | 0 comments »

I’d finished roughing out the stummel of the pipe on the bandsaw and I moved on to rounding off the rough edges. My first approach was to stick the 12” disc sander on the Shopsmith and go to town. Since the lathe was out of commission, I thought this was my next best option. I’d seen videos on YouTube and it seemed fairly straightforward. What quickly became apparent was that such a large, rigid disc was not going to give me the fine detail I wanted. It worked fine for round...

Piping Up #2: What to do when the machines break

06-12-2014 07:37 PM by sylinen | 4 comments »

I love my Shopsmith|I hate my Shopsmith. It’s a couplet familiar to any owner of that beguiling piece of machinery. When they work, they’re a great tool. When they break, they’re rather annoying. My Shopsmith’s particular failing is in the alignment of its pulley sheaves. They tend to become misaligned at high speed, which is no great issue when I’m using the table saw. But, when I need to slow it down the sheaves don’t mesh and I end up pushing out the thr...

Piping Up #1: What to do with the accumulating scraps

06-12-2014 06:38 PM by sylinen | 4 comments »

I want to acquaint you with the disease called scrapitis. It’s a chronic condition that manifests itself most commonly in the idle woodworker who is short on funds but long on imagination. It’s chief symptom is an inability to look at a pile of lumber scraps without dreaming up some sort of knickknack or thingamajig to conjure out of the assorted detritus. Sadly, scrapitis is incurable, but it can be treated by the application of tool to wood. I suffer from scrapitis, which has la...

Traditional Chinese Jack plane

05-25-2014 10:52 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Start with a chunk of oak. This is Red Oak, I think. and layout a few lines. A 45 degree one for the iron to bad on, and another for the wedge to press against. Layout some other lines. Where the mouth is, and where the “eyes” go. The Eyes are the two points that hold the wedge in place. Ahead of them is the escape,emt area where shavings are supposed to exit. Like this. Then the chopping begins with the idea of making a hole all the way through. Then ...
