Vintage Craftsman 306.9121 planer restoration #2: OK moving right along

07-24-2012 09:34 PM by Don W | 20 comments »

Well, not really, but hey progress is progress even if its slow. I never planned to take everything apart and repaint. So I dismantled the hood and a few misc parts, painted them up along with the new dust collection. Made a few rubber grommets to deaden the rattles. The put it back together.Added a 30’ lengh of 10-3 power cord, connected to a new switch. Took on last look at old unreliable. And set the new girl in her new home. Attached the dust co...

Vintage Craftsman 306.9121 planer restoration #1: Planer restoration. The beginning.

07-22-2012 01:24 PM by Don W | 39 comments »

So I won a planer on ebay for $39. I bid the starting bid never expecting to win. I figured for $39, the 3hp electric motor would cover it. This was the only picture supplied. Last weekend I drove to pick it up. http://lumberjocks.com/topics/39731 Once home I gave it a systems check. Does it work? The description said “In working condition”, but what exactly did that mean. Since the motor was not attached, I rewired it for 110V just to test it (will be put back to 220v ...

Craftsman table saw restoration

05-21-2012 01:53 AM by dask | 10 comments »

Hope putting this as a blog is OK. If not moderators may move it. To start off, on a weekly basis I have been visiting my recycling center where I live. I always find useful junk for woodworking and my metal projects (just bought a Lincoln HD140 welder on Craigslist).I had noticed months ago in the corner of the property there was what seemed to me the carcass of a table saw without the top placed upside down in high grass and dirt. Out of curiosity this past Sat I decided to go take a loo...

Table Saw Jigs #1: A Crosscut / Miter Sled for Craftsman 10" Table Saw With Non-Standard Miter Slots

04-13-2012 03:03 AM by Retsof | 2 comments »

Here’s a link to a video that I made about my new crosscut / miter sled that I built for my Sears Craftsman 10” Table Saw with non-standard miter slots. I hope this helps some others who are looking for a solution to improve the accuracy of cross cuts and miter cuts with similar inadequately equipped table saws. I added the miter cutting features after this video was made, so I will have to update the video or include some new photos at another time. http://youtu.be/0Gr5t...

Refurbishing a Craftsman "King Seeley" tablesaw

12-31-2011 07:23 AM by biltron | 3 comments »

Hello Lumberjocks - I’m renting a house that came with an old table saw in the basement – a Craftsman – made by King Seeley Corporation. I found a good description of it here: http://www.old-woodworking-tools.net/craftsman-king-seeley-model-no-10322160-8-table-saw.html and the manual here: http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=1159 Eventually I hope to buy a house and get a “real” table saw, but in the meantime, I thought I’d see wh...

Craftsman 6" Jointer, model # 103.20620 #1: My First Jointer!

12-19-2011 06:20 AM by jboehle | 21 comments »

I picked up this beauty for only $75 off Craigslist this weekend. Everything seems to be in good shape except for nicks on the blades about 4” out. It’s missing the blade guard for when you move the fence in, but other than that has everything else, as far as I can see. The power switch is attached with duct tape, but I will remedy that as well. Now for the tool p0rn!

Mission Dining Build #5 - Table Apron, and final assembly

12-07-2011 10:51 PM by pintodeluxe | 7 comments »

The table assembly is now complete. Since the leaves store in the table, the aprons needed to be hinged. I used short piano (continuous) hinges from hardware source.com. The hinges are 4.5” long, and lock at 90 degrees, similar to jewlery box hinges. I used inset rare earth magnets to lock the hinged aprons in there in-use positions. Felt lines the frame, which creates a nice little nest for the leaves. The table extends to accept two 12” leaves v...

Mission Dining Build #4 - The Table

11-17-2011 08:01 PM by pintodeluxe | 0 comments »

The dining table is well underway, with the frame assembled and equilizer slides installed. I think there are some misconceptions about equilizer slides. They work for pedastal tables, or any design where the legs are stationary when opening the table. I had to do some searching to find slides that would accomodate this 46” wide by 104” long table. It will have two 12” leaves, and is 80” long when closed. The other spec I needed was...
