Load Testing of Monarch Clip System #1: Summary of Independent Shear Testing

04-02-2013 07:24 PM by cls3277 | 0 comments »

At Monarch Metal, we frequently receive questions about how much weight our Monarch Z Clip system can support. For those of you that are not familiar with the product, Monarch Z Clips are similar to a french cleat and are used to mount panels, cabinets, signs, etc. Anyway, we recently had some third party independent testing performed by Qualtim, Inc. and we wanted to share the results to the extent they are helpful for you. The headline is that for a typical 4’ wide by 8’ hi...

New State, New Shop #12: Up-grading the Dust Collection

01-10-2013 06:06 PM by DrPuk2U | 4 comments »

When I first set up my shop, I bought a Delta 50-760 DC. It works well enough, but when jointing and planing a lot of wood the plastic bag fills up fairly rapidly and it is a PAIN to take off, empty and then re-install. Once you get the hang of it, the process is easier but it’s never easy and it almost inevitably ends up with a bunch of saw dust all over. So I decide to invest in a Oneida Super Dust Deputy. By the time I got it, I had realized that the fact that the Delta was mob...

French Cleat

08-07-2012 04:59 PM by Litrenta | 6 comments »

Started adding a french cleat system to keep my tiny little space organized. I had tons of scrap pieces of plywood and dowels hanging around from previous projects so was able to make good use of it. I absolutely love this setup and have had a lot of fun building out all the attachments for the wall.

Workshop setup #6: French cleat rails complete

07-21-2012 06:19 AM by FlashG | 2 comments »

Can’t believe how long this took but I finally had some time to finish the lower stud so that I can attach some French cleat rails once the MDF covers the entire section. Progress should be a bit quicker from here – no annoying angles to worry about now!

Cordless Drill Charging Station

01-29-2012 09:18 PM by Sailor | 3 comments »

I decided to build a charging station to store my cordless drills. It turned out pretty well and really helped because I just had my drills laying around and my chargers in different places with the cords in the way…. Thanks for watching!

In the Shop #5: Shop renovation #?? who knows lost count

12-06-2011 05:59 AM by Hoakie | 5 comments »

Ok, as some of you know or gathered from my electrical questions, I have been upgrading my shop once again. When we had our new deck built this summer, I had the electrician run a 40amp sub panel to my shop. You can read about it here. When all was said and done I ran a dedicated 20amp circuit to the DC and 2 independent 20 amp GFCI circuits (about 10 pair of duplex outlets) around the shop. I debated about how high to mount them. I know 48” is fairly standard, however, i do not hav...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #3: Rolling Tool Cart

05-31-2011 09:40 AM by rance | 3 comments »

I got the inspiration for this from Workbench Magazine . I deliberately did not look at their drawings for dimensions or scale. This cart looked like a good design. As with many projects, it is infinitely easier to customize an existing design rather than come up with all original ideas. How many times do we stand on the shoulders of giants that have gone before us? The inner structure: I replaced the pegboard on theirs with 1/2” plywood thinking I would simply screw to...

Shop Update #10: Shed update and my first kickback!

05-15-2011 04:24 AM by TheKingInYellow | 6 comments »

The ground is finally drying out and I have started clearing the area for the shed. I need to keep two feet away from the property line, so I’m going to frame out a 10’ x 8’ area with pressure treated 4×4 with rebar stakes to keep everything in place. An inch or two of quarter down gravel levelled inside the frame and then a raised 8’x6’ platform of pressure treated 2×4s with pressure treated decking on top. I’ll put paving stones or something ...
