Building a KARA Hummer Layout Duck Boat #1: Building the Lower Frame

05-11-2015 07:00 PM by DustyMark | 6 comments »

The Requirement I moved back to MN in June 2014, after nearly 30 years away, and my brother quickly introduced me to duck hunting. We’re not on any of the major flyways here, so we need to put everything in our favor possible. We read about the advantages of layout boats in providing maximum concealment from wary ducks and talked about it in the duck blind all last season. Our hunting party consists of my brother, my nephew, and me and we decided to build three one-man layout boat...

PVC Dust Collection Blast Gate - self cleaning design with a detent feature

02-17-2015 05:23 PM by GlassImpressions | 3 comments »

I filmed the build on my YouTube Channel. Please check it out! Please like, share, and if you enjoyed the video subscribe! http://youtu.be/ACLFMAfV1fk I recently added a Clearvue Cyclone dust collector to my shop. I plumbed it completely with 6” and 4” PVC piping. I needed a way to close off each branch to maximize the performance of the dust collector. Commercially available plastic blast gates are way to cheap and clog easily. The metal blast gates that solve this issue are p...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #2: Tach, Toilet and Grinder

01-02-2015 12:46 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

The tachometer came in yesterday. Now, I’m ready to start working on determining the pulley sizes. I did read, understand and follow all the instructions that came with the my tachometer. After putting the refective sticker on the flywheel of the motor, I was able to determine that the maximum speed of the motor is 6200 RPM’s. That speed is about twice as fast as I need it so my pulley ratio should be around 1:2. I found a pulley calculator online and I have an idea of the size...

Marking Gauge #3: some progress

08-01-2014 05:19 PM by harum | 0 comments »

Haven’t had much time lately for my marking gauge: our neighbor pulled out of her garage on her SUV without … opening the garage door. Fixing the door has taken more than I thought it would. Epoxied brass wear strip, the fence and put in the threaded insert. Instead of the suggested 3/8” hole for the insert I had to make it a bit wider than 7/16”—the rosewood’s really hard. Found a brass bolt to be sacrificed for two shoes. The knurled scr...

Wood Thoughts #9: Oceans and Oceans of Glue, But Still Don’t Eat It

05-26-2014 03:14 AM by Fr. Thomas Bailey, OSB | 3 comments »

Please Consider Checking Out My Website: MonkWerks.org Some people may have thought that the glue blog title I mentioned in Clamps, Clamps, and More Clamps!!! was made up. And yes it was, but such a good title should not go to waste – he’s quite the recycling monk, mostly other people’s ideas. So I took it upon my self to patent, trademark, copyright, and claim it as my own. Let’s see those royalty checks just start rolling in – you do remember that you&...

10-22-2013 12:29 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 4 comments »

I’ve been working on a live edge Bubinga bar which is now finished. I came across a little bit of footage of the third piece of live edge Bubinga I had to apply and epoxy bar top finish to.

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #26: Something here is not quite right

08-24-2013 03:36 AM by Mark Shymanski | 2 comments »

Days when I do stuff like this I move a whole lot more carefully and really plan out any work with sharp spinny bits. Once I remedied the goof I managed to finish my mast step. A buddy of mine came over after work to check out the progress on 816 and of course we talked about all manner of sailing things. Phil had some really good advice about strengthening my mast/locker bulkhead and not add too much weight. We also had a really good discussion about rigging 816, and I think he ...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #22: No brushes, so worked on the mast mount

08-12-2013 02:36 AM by Mark Shymanski | 3 comments »

I couldn’t find any brushes and I don’t like shopping on Sunday so I thought instead of painting I’d just work on the mast mount. Now I’d initially had this really complicated mount in my head (a dark and scary place at the best of times:-) but after a bit of advice, from shipwright, on how strong the step would need to be I simplified my plan. So I squared up a piece of Douglas Fir I think I got from my Dad before evening leaving the College, so its a well t...

Maybe the beginning of a larger project #21: On to painting...

08-11-2013 06:04 PM by Mark Shymanski | 9 comments »

It has been a hectic week here. Last weekend I drove over 1500 km round trip to attend my cousin’s 40th wedding anniversary, then my mother came for a visit for a couple of days, Wednesday was family day Thursday was cold raining but I managed to do a bit on hull 816, Friday was mostly taken up with paperwork…a 24 page report on my holidays! Saturday I got back into the shop finished epoxying the tops of the bouyancy tanks and the bottom, the bow and stern. This is where I lef...
