This is a project I’ve been wanting to do for a year or so now. Watch the build on YouTube. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5--q60JdDJ0
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
In this installment of Dread Knot Woodshop, we make longer handles for some old Craftsman lathe chisels on the lathe. https://youtu.be/lcr6bpbVtSw
I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.
I finally got around to editing and completing the video series on the essential oil cabinet that I made for my son for Christmas. Lightworks is still a bit of a chore and will be for a while yet, but it is not locking up and being frustrating like Windows Movie Maker was. I still have a long way to go, but it is fun learning. My son liked the cabinet and most people who have laid eyes on it do to. It was a big complex job and I find that shooting video while working makes it go almost ...
Now that I have all of my lumber to start my projects, I need to get my garage in order and put together the shop in the best possible layout. But the first order of business is getting my vintage craftsman jointer in working condition. Oh as a heads up I very rarely and I do mean rarely buy anything tools new. Just a waste of money that can be spent on wood and more tools, but I digress. I have a Craftsman/King Sealey 101.03582 6” jointer with a fixed infeed table and adjustable outfee...
Well, fighting Windows Movie Maker and getting another one done. After three tries with Microsoft Support, including giving them remote access, I get told that WMM is not compatible with Win 10, and that just sucks. It keeps freezing up on me and I lose a lot of work and Microsoft just does not care. Of course the suggested I could buy something at the app store….yeah, right, I’ve seen the old bait and switch before. I have downloaded a free version of Lightworks but have not installed it yet...
Yesterday I jointed and planed the new walnut board I had bought at MacBeath Hardwood,. After I squared off one end and had cut the boards to their maximum widths, I laid them on my workbench to sticker them. It was then when I laid this new board next to the older walnut I had in stock for about six months that I noticed quite a difference in color and texture or grain. Can You See the Difference in Color In These Walnut Boards? The newest boards and darkest are the two on the outer edges...
I got back into my shop to complete the milling process on the lumber for these three projects. Today with the 6/4 maple I had to square the edge of both short boards. Today I simply maximized the width of each board by ripping the boards on the table saw. The jointed edge goes up against the saw’s ripping fence and I determine which end of the board is the thinnest then I set the fence to skim cut that end . Later I will crosscut to an oversized length for each of the parts. Then...
Yesterday I went shopping for hardwood. In this state I am only aware of two hardwood lumber stores: MacBeath Hardwood and Intermountain Wood Products. At MacBeath’s the customer can walk into the storage area and pick out anything that fits his fancy. It is different at IWP. There you state what you are there to buy, then a fork-lift operator will take your list and will bring out a pallet, one species at a time, so you can select the boards you want. Then he will make another t...
