Rest of the plane is now done. Now comes the rear handle. Last seen, it had a pair of extra brass screws in it’s top, and a crack near the bottom Tried to glue the larger crack back together with a Locktite CA glue. Didn’t look like it should. The top was missing a “horn” and had two screws holding what was left. Rumaged around in the “Spares” box. The box where the frog’s yokes were found. A handle was in there about the same si...
http://youtu.be/LB-jLaQjzxA Well the journey on this project is nearing the end…
Here are three pens I turned for co-workers over the Thanksgiving Day weekend. The first two pens are gold in color 30cal Bolt Action Pens. The next three are Patriot pens. The Patriot pens are new to the market and make a very pretty pen once turned. The last two are also new to the market. The last two are Western style pens, also very nice looking pens.
I decided that it was time to make something for me, and what better than a new Workbench, I have been making do, with the bench I made when living in an apartment, and had a micro workshop in a spare bedroom, now it was time for a man size bench. The pile of mahogany to the left of the saw horse leg is my bench (that on the right is still the Kiosko / Gazebo roof!) this arrived on the 19th. I then sorted the timber and cut the parts The planks on the left are the top at 2.5...
So I traded a .270 weatherby and 300$ for an old rockwell unisaw that was just refurbished by its previous owner. I got it dialed in when I discovered the top was warped when I went to cut some tenons to test it out. Needless to say, this was a big problem. A machine shop wanted 400$ to surface grind .010 off, but even then the heat could still warp it. There were also no shop with a Blanchard grinder from laffayette to houma to New Orleans with the capacity to do it, that were willing...
11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...
I started with a scrap of 1/2 MDF big enough to get both sides of the outrigger. I believe the measurements were 48” long, 16” high at the end next to the saw, and 12” high at the outer end. This picture shows how I laid it out: I began by ripping down a Douglas fir 2×12 into strips about 2 3/8” wide. I used this for my framing around the edges.I left the small end open and laid the 40 X 80 mm extrusion in the center parallel to the side that was...
I stopped at Lowes this morning to buy the Porter Cable 660 DP. $319.99 on the floor, $255.20 plus tax after the Harbor Freight 20% off coupon I printed from an online site. Setup was very straight forward, with one exception. The very last step is installing the arbor and chuck. The arbor installation instruction states to make sure the arbor is engaged and locked. There are no clues provided as to how you ensure the arbor is engaged and locked. Here is what I can tell you. Yes, I ca...
