Jet JBS-18 Bandsaw Restoration #1: Buying the Beast

356 days ago by FreezFurn | 2 comments »

I found this beastly bandsaw at an estate sale earlier this summer. I have been looking for an older 14 inch in working condition for quite some time for the right price, but Craigslist and other estate sales were not working out within my budget. I want a saw that can resaw and cut out bowl or pen blanks easily. Well this one seemed to fit the bill. I cannot find anything about it on the web, so I am posting this hoping someone can learn from my experience in trying to bring it back to l...

Kid Friendly Project- A Garden Tote

360 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 2 comments »

This project is a great way to get the kids involved. They can do most of the machining, definitely the sanding, and then they can get creative with the painting. This is made with 2 used fence pickets/panels that are 5’ long. They sell new ones for $1.50 at the big box stores. This take only a couple hours to make (including paint drying time). Please like, share, and subscribe to my YouTube Channel.

Rock-n H Woodshop podcast #13: Jointer Fence Jig

378 days ago by Drew - Rock-n H Woodshop | 9 comments »

Have you ever needed to joint on your table saw? I know I have in the past and I had a fence made to do it. However, b/c of my fence upgrade I have not been able to do so, until now. In this episode, I show you how to build your own jointer fence fixture that will allow you to use your saw blade like jointer knives. If you have scraps of ply that you want to make bigger without the hassle of going to the lumber store to get a new sheet, this makes nice work of cleaning up joints on not ju...

From a 200 year old ruin to a workshop, a 3 year journey... #5: Working towards the first stones of rebuilding

446 days ago by Serradura | 6 comments »

The view, the reason for buying a 200 year old derelict cottage at this place in the rural heart of Portugal, is sometimes scary. Bush fires are common during the summer. In this case our view from the hilltop became a dark spectacle. After a few years you get use to it, and it makes you carefull with fire. Sometimes it’s the only way to get rit things, so at the first rain fall in october…. To show that there is some woodworking involved during the first years of th...

Simple Band Saw Fence

634 days ago by arco21 | 8 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...

Craftsman TS Upgrade #3: Fence and Zero Clearance Insert Installed

723 days ago by Tedstor | 6 comments »

Its been a somewhat busy week for me and I had to install the fence over a 4-5 day period. All said, I’d estimate the total install time at 4-5 hours. And the results were not 100% perfect. The front of the fence sat a nice, cozy 1/16 off the table, while the rear was about 1/8 (maybe even 3/16)( See 2nd pic below). I suppose I should happy it wasn’t worse seeing as how I drilled the rear portion of the table and the rail with a hand drill. I could have removed the rear rail, enla...

Harry's new router table and fence design #2: Adjustable router table fence

799 days ago by TheHarr | 8 comments »

My earlier router table fences lacked control. I would tap one side and the other would move. Tapping is an inexact way to move something in very small increments. I’ve hit on a very inexpensive, easy to make, router adjustment system that works well. It can quickly, and easily, zero in on precise fence adjustments. This fence is attached to the table using four bolts that can be set up and removed in just a couple of minutes. So less talking and more photos; thanks to my neighbor...
