Dust Collection #5: 6" DIY Blast Gates Version 2

04-05-2016 01:46 AM by Holbs | 1 comment »

My Version 1 blast gates were… functional but with a structural design flaw. Whenever I placed torque on the blast gate for any reason (hanging downwards of spiral 6” hose or bumping a machine into it while moving machine around, etc), the HVAC sheet metal sometimes compressed against the sliding 1/8” hardboard. I should never of cut out a U shaped notch for the bolts, but instead drilled dedicated holes. Plus, the blast gate structure stuck out waaaay too far. Lessons ...

Leather disc for sharpening

02-12-2016 07:45 PM by Sergeich | 6 comments »

I love to sharpen my tools with Japanese water stones. It is like meditation. First you choose appropriate stones for a particular blade. Then soak these stones in water for a while. Then level surfaces of the stones. Then pick up one stone and start to sharpen. Thoroughly, thoughtfuly, unhurriedly. Then you take second stone, then third, then fourth… Using nagura… Listening to shamisen… This way inevitably leads to full and ultimate enlightenment. But, to be honest, sometimes I just want to ...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #2: Change of Plans and Doing a Jig

01-18-2016 04:22 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/18/2016: Watching some Disney this weekend I have come up with a name. She will be called, “Tiger Lily”! After getting some quotes from the lumber yard it occurred to me that, since I can’t get 4×10’s, I will have to scarf more than one joint to get the planking and board lengths for the 16.5 footer. This will add significant extra cost with a lot of waste. I decided to go to the 15’ version and, even though I’m losing about two feet o...

15 Ft Power-Drifter Fishing Boat, "Tiger Lily" #1: The plans are in!

01-15-2016 08:42 PM by Tomato | 5 comments »

Entry on 1/15/2016: Hi everyone! I am an avid steelhead fisherman in Southeast Michigan. The rivers down here are a little difficult to drift a float like I would prefer. It’s hard to get into a good hole due to lots of overgrowth on the banks and the majority of the river being private property. My solution is the Power-Drifter from Glen-L. It will allow me to slow my travel down the river, hotshot, fly fish, or drift with a spinning combo or centerpin. I will also get some good ...

Videos by HuckD #17: Dowel Jigs 1 and 2

01-14-2016 06:37 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

I’ve made a couple of dowel jigs to use on a table and bench project that I’m making from 2×12 Southern Yellow Pine. One is useful for joining two pieces of 2 by # lumber and the other is for 4×4 lumber. They’re very inexpensive as they are made from a scrap piece of 1” oak and some “steel spacers” from Lowes. Both have proven to be accurate and easy to use.
