Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

Evolution of a Shop #10: New fence for R4511

07-13-2010 06:23 PM by Cory | 11 comments »

I haven’t been terribly unhappy with the stock fence that came with my Ridgid R4511 table saw, but I did want to improve it. I followed several blogs and forum topics on replacing the front and rear rails, buying a new tube and using the stock fence, but I felt like that was a lot of work (and I’m feeling lazy lately). So, my lovely bride blessed me with a new fence as a gift for our 10 year anniversary. I love that woman. Here’s the shop fox fence from Grizzly mounted...

Deep stop for a Record 50 / 43 ( Stanley) BLOG.

05-23-2010 08:03 PM by mafe | 12 comments »

Hi all…Here I am again, have some time since I’m in Paris visiting my fionce who is French. Deep stop for Record No. 43 / 50 plane (Stanley)Perhaps a smiths project… (at least silver smith).Here are also a blog of how to make wooden fence: Ok I admit! It was not clever of me, I did not see that the deep stop was missing on the 43 I bought on E-bay. But the seller was nice and gave me a 4 pound discount on a price that was 13, so I was s...

Wooden fence, and tuning up a Record No. 50 plane (Stanley) BLOG.

05-22-2010 03:16 AM by mafe | 5 comments »

Hi guys and girls of course… Wooden fence, and tuning up a Record No. 50 plane (Stanley)A little tuning up on one my no. 50 planes (I have 2 now).Here are also a blog of how to make a new deep stop: Why put a wooden fence?Because it’s more gentle against the wood you are going to plane, and with a high fence like this, you can also hold a good 90 degree angel against the wood. You can make also a low one, that just holds the hight of th...

tragedies #11: the back yard fence saga

03-26-2010 09:51 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

It sure feels like everything is falling apart this year. There was the planer and its bearings. Too, more than ever I’m wearing out shoes and clothes. I’ve gotten wood glue or finishes on and holes in so many shirts now, and had 3 pairs of jeans become for lack of a better word ‘dry rotten,’ each ending up with tears more than a foot long. The dryer broke… again (washer broke last year – the bottom rusted out and after filling, it popped and dumped water a...

The Great Garage Reorganization and Shop Improvement Act #3: New Table Saw

02-11-2010 12:45 AM by captkerk | 10 comments »

Any good workshop redo includes new tools and I finally replaced my old Craftsman bench-top saw with a Ridgid R4511. I got it for the clearance price of $499, but then three days later it dropped in price to $299. I was able to get Home Depot to honor the new lower price and I came away with a brand new saw for an almost criminally low price. The assembly was a bit time consuming, but the other lumberjocks’ reviews helped with some of the common issues. I was quite annoyed to ...

Router Table #12: The Good the Bad and the Ugly... New Fence Arrived

01-31-2010 02:07 AM by PurpLev | 22 comments »

I saw an ad on craigslist for a Jointech 12” router fence positioner which is similar to the Incra LS positioner -has a lead screw, and has what Incra sells as add on – the “wonder fence” as the standard fence. the guy posted it as used, but at what Jointech is selling it NEW… I contacted the person trying to negotiate a win-win situation. that was 2 weeks ago. the jointech fence is still on craigslist. I just couldn’t justify his price for a fence I’...

Sketchup Resources #5: Incra 17" LS Positioner System

01-26-2010 04:28 PM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

Finally got the fence and was able to model it out last night. I wish I had the opportunity to do this earlier, or at least have this model before I cut the hole in my router table top for the router plate as based on this fence I would have liked to put it 2.5” more to the front. but. 2.5” is not that critical, and I could move the fence backwards if needed. hope this can help someone else: this is not a production model, but just a model to help visualize and design a ro...

My Shop #2: Table Saw Fence

10-29-2009 10:02 PM by DannyBoy | 5 comments »

To continue the series of setting up my Craftsman table saw, I’d like to go over adding the aftermarket Delta T2 fence system. I have basically followed the same steps as Jamie did on his setup. For the most part, this is the way to go for this setup. A couple of things before I get started. First, you will have to drill new holes in the mounting brackets for the fence system. There is no way around this. If you take your time and pay attention, you’ll do alright. Second,...

Fence #2: Completed back section

08-09-2009 07:20 PM by kolwdwrkr | 2 comments »

Well the street side of the property is completely fenced off. I think it came out good for not being a fence maker. Now I need to do a gate, a small side yard section and another entire length up against the neighbors yard (my foreclosed home :^( ). That section needs to be designed differently and won’t have the lattice for privacy issues. It will also be taller. ~71”. 72” requires a permit. Suckers. LOL. It will be coming off of the section I already did, so I am go...
