But, when I went the chop out the matching pins….they merely broke off….Grrrr Tried the sockets for the main rails.. Which meant lif...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...

I was wondering what your impressions are of the Nova after using it for a couple months. What kind of run out and quill slop does it have?Any info would be helpful and appreciated. ANON.I have post it here (wit da spelin cowected) in case it may give others a greater insight on the Voyager after longer (albeit still too short) use, without having to type it ag...

05-10-2017 02:49 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

So I noticed after looking on Facebook that there were no woodworking guilds in Oklahoma that I could fine so I’ve made a Facebook page titled woodworkers Guild of Oklahoma basically just because a lot of other states have a guild and my hopes are to build some networking and make some relationships with some other woodworkers locally because to be quite honest I don’t have but one friend who is a woodworker and he can’t do anything right now because of a personal injury. ...
