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...

Stickley / Jeff Jewitt Arts and Crafts Finish

04-15-2013 01:24 AM by pintodeluxe | 14 comments »

I wanted to recreate this Jeff Jewitt finish from Fine Woodworking #157, however the article didn’t list which formula was used. I consulted with Jeff, and it was Transtint Brown Mohogany dye, followed by McCloskeys Walnut stain. McClosky no longer makes stain, but sold to Valspar / Cabot. ---So I set out to make a sample board to achieve the rich, dark color I was after. ---The top colors are stain only, the middle colors are dye first then stain, and the bottom color is dye only. ...

Delta T2 Fence #6: How to setup and install on a Craftsman tablesaw

01-19-2008 07:58 AM by Jamie | 14 comments »

Since I have installed the Delta T2 fence on my Craftsman tablesaw, I have had a few people asking how I installed it, especially, how I installed the fence so that it would zero properly. For those that are thinking about installing this fence on a craftsman, you WILL have to drill new holes in the rails. You can use one of the existing holes, but you will not be able to ‘0’ the fence. I wish that I had taken pictures of each step to further clarify the information listed be...

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

12-19-2011 06:20 AM by jboehle | 23 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!

Stickley #369 Morris Chair #6: Leather Upholstery

03-24-2014 11:12 PM by pintodeluxe | 31 comments »

I took a leather sewing class to learn how to make the Morris chair cushions. -----The seat cushion and the ottoman cushion require web frames. Here I am milling the half-lap components for the web frames. -----Web frame assemblies are glued together. The seat frame should be sized 1/4” smaller in all directions than the opening in your chair, to allow room for the leather and two layers of batting.-----Corner blocks are added to the large seat cushion for additional strength. -----I...

Craftsman Table Saw Restoration #1: First Impressions & Disassembly

08-27-2012 03:07 AM by Data643 | 6 comments »

We had a new family move in on our street a few weeks ago, & since they were downsizing from their previous house, they had a lot of stuff they just didn’t want anymore which they ended up just putting in the garage. So, one thing led to another and I got a old table saw. It’s a 1973 Craftsman saw with a 1.5HP 3450 rpm hp induction motor. The top has a moderate amount of rust, most of which was removed in about 10 mins with a wire brush. There’s still some left, which...

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

07-22-2012 01:24 PM by Don W | 40 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 113 table saw upgrades.... #1: Not a true blog...

05-03-2014 01:57 AM by rhybeka | 13 comments »

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the possible/plausible/necessary upgrades that I need/want to do to my table saw (and other tools but this one takes precedence). So I thought well… I should probably put them in some kind of order – not necessarily in any order – maybe somewhat necessity? As a newb, I just want to make sure my equipment is running as well and as safely as it possibly can. It’s already in great condition for it’s age and I&#...

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...

Why I like Vintage Tools #10: Completed Shop

11-12-2010 04:26 AM by brianinpa | 9 comments »

In the last two weeks, I have bought the two pieces of equipment that I have been looking for and now I think my shop is complete as far as vintage power tools are concerned (until I see something else). I have a Rockwell/Delta drill press, but for me it just wasn’t old enough. I walked into the auction house as a way to get away from Trick-or-Treat night. Wasn’t really looking for anything but then I heard this little beauty calling my name: It is a Companion (Com...
