Nubs Sander #1: Stumpy Nubs sander build 2

344 days ago by Dogboy | 3 comments »

After my night shift spent a few hours starting the build (after some time hunting the bits and pieces, and finishing a chair). Ok so alignment is essential on this thing, so I decided to use dadoes on the case work. I will finish glue and screws (and some glue blocks) This will help me assure that the walls of the case are parallel. I made the cuts and rough fit the bits. I will play with wiring cut outs later. but for now I am to tired for power tools.

Model Bell 407 helicopter project #4: Sanding and shaping.

928 days ago by Ryan Haasen | 2 comments »

In the last while, I have been sanding and shaping the helicopter. I did end up getting the pneumatic sander. It is the perfect tool for the job. I have probably spent 10 hours, but many more are to come. It is ver difficult to get it to the same shape of the real helicopter, it is still more square-ish then I would like it to be. Also just realized that the rear-bottom comes to a point, so a lot of material is yet to be removed. Thanks in advance for your comments.

The back drum had felt well pieces of felt on it so I cleaned up the...

1399 days ago by OttoH | 4 comments »

After seeing Steve at Woodworking For Mere Mortals, throw together a Slit Drum I have decided to build one as a Christmas present. I have built a prototype / test drum and can now proceed with designing the final drum and building it. Since this is a learning process, I have decided to blog the building of the drum to document what I have learned about it. I did a lot of research on the internet on how to build a slit drum and found that there are three preferred ratios for tongues 3...

1599 days ago by skeeter | 3 comments »

Had a redneck revelation. ” hey I don’t own a lathe so I’ll use my drum sander to turn the inside of my shell.” WRONG!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It exloded. Sent pieces of the stave drum some 30 feet. Thank god I was standing on the infeed side like the warning on the front of the machine said. So here is the details of what I did. I took the top off the machine took the pressure rollers off and took one of the sanding drums off. I then got 2 shorter belts from NAPA and put them...
