the old, dull blade isn’t in the table saw anymore! now its a new shiny sharp freud blade!The old one wasn’t even for hardwood, it said mostly man made boards, including asbestos board, giving you an idea of its age. This is a new combo blade, and it works great!got home tried it and was amazed. It was on sale anyway.
Hi fellow sawdust creators,In the pause during this week before I actually touch my Unisaw again on Saturday, I thought I would share my new blades that will soon be doing 10’s of thousands of revolutions and ripping, crosscutting and mitering their way to oblivion… Introducing the four new additions to the “blade brigade”........ May I present “Lord Combination”, offering a variety of talents to his royal highness, ME Please welcome “The Duk...
Melamine is notorious for chipping out when cutting. In this video I share my tools and techniques for creating clean cuts on both sides of melamine. The blade I use in the video is a Freud LU97R010. It makes the cut on the back side as clean as on the top side. The images of the cuts in the video are of the backside of the material where chip-out tends to occur. (I did not make that clear in the video.) In Part II I will show you how to apply edge banding. This is not just instr...
Hello Lumberjocks - I’m renting a house that came with an old table saw in the basement – a Craftsman – made by King Seeley Corporation. I found a good description of it here: http://www.old-woodworking-tools.net/craftsman-king-seeley-model-no-10322160-8-table-saw.html and the manual here: http://vintagemachinery.org/pubs/detail.aspx?id=1159 Eventually I hope to buy a house and get a “real” table saw, but in the meantime, I thought I’d see wh...
I picked up a Freud biscuit joiner yesterday from a friend for $20. Great condition, works great. Looking forward to putting it to good use.
Yesterday I watched a video by Chuck Bender Acantuscarver on making string inlays. He was using a Freud Diablo saw blade 7 1/4” on his 10” table saw. Today I was walking through Big Orange and I spied the blades hanging on a display rack. Man, were they thin kerf. I checked their web site and they are less than 1/16” thick. The blades were about 10-15 bucks depending on the blade that you bought. Then I walked by the Tool Crib and they had a display of the 24 tooth ...
Up to now, things were relatively easy. Now the actual work was going to start. To make the drawers, I decided to use Poplar. However, I did something I would now change. I purchased 4/4 of the stuff with the idea that I would resaw in half on my bandsaw. In retrospect, I should have purchased 8/4 and cut it into thirds. After resawing, planing and sanding, the boards were much thinner than I had hoped. The next decision was how to construct the drawers themselves. I have an Akeda Dovetai...
Dropped by the local weekend flea market on Sunday, just thought I’d kill a few minutes sharing some of the goodies I picked up…. (thats right, its “sharing” not “bragging” lol!) A B&D twin-screw benchtop clamping thingy I got for $4, looks damn handy, tho those metal jaws are pretty ragged, figure prolly remove em and either sand down the plastic jaws smooth or epoxy on some hardwood ones. .... A Craftsman benchtop router table, got it fo...
Today I received a call from Dale at ACME Tools in Cedar Rapids. A couple of weeks ago I asked if they had any router plates. Dale said that they were out but there were some that were supposed to be arriving any day. He checked the computer, and the order was a couple of days past due. I find the people at ACME tools to be helpful and they are very patient with my lack of knowledge. The next two times I walked in, Dale saw me and said that the Rosseau plate wasn’t in yet. I didn’...
This is my grandfather’s 1967 Delta Unisaw. It sat for years after his death from the time I was about 10 till I was in my first house at 25. Took minimal clean up and was ready to go. It had the original fence so I purchased a Delta upgrade. Not as nice as the Beisemeyer but not as expensive either. It was an easy bolt on and was exact right out of the box. You can also see my Jessem Miter which is a fantastic Miter. I run Freud blades and between these three upgrades the cuts on th...
