Leatherwork #1: the mandatory pencil case

670 days ago by Sodabowski | 10 comments »

Fed up of carrying my pencils in the basic, cheap, crappy chinese plywood sliding top pencil case…Found a scrap of thick pigskin leather at work for 1€, the color was not uniform and the veins were visible, which I absolutely LOVED. Grabbed it fast and ran away with it. I knew I would turn it into a pencil case, but I needed the kick to start it. This is the model I started with, changing it to account for the thickness of my leather: no outer rims, no liner :) http://sewmamasew.c...

721 days ago by shipwright | 21 comments »

Last winter Steve (kizerpea) posted this home built canister filter. It caught my attention because I had a large DC system in my Canadian shop that employed a bag filter. Having just done a canister conversion on my HF DC in AZ (how’s that for acronyms), I was all ears especially the part about using truck filters. .... FREE truck filters. It has taken me a while to get around to it but today I was at the point where that &%^$#&^# dust bag needed to be cleaned. I HATE clean...

760 days ago by Gary | 2 comments »

Here’s a picture of my cyclone dust separator shop vac: I used three different sizes of chlorine buckets from the pool supply store (we bought them full…), an ancient Craftsman shopvac, some scrap pvc tubing, a couple bought pvc fittings, a couple types of epoxy glue, an HF furniture moving dolly for the casters, a section of a pool vac hose which we’ve never used, and some plywood scraps. I studied all the cyclone designs I could find, many here on LJ, many on you...

Shop Built Clamps

787 days ago by Dave Rutan | 13 comments »

Lately I’ve been looking around trying to find inexpensive ways to make clamps to use in the shop. I think of my purchased commercially available clamps I own two 3 foot bar clamps and three Quick Grip clamps, plus two old c-clamps. Bar Type Clamps: The first information I found about making your own clamps was Alex Harris’ video. I made one of these out of some second hand wood I had, though I did fudge the screw in favor of my own variation. Spool Clamps: I ...
