CLAMP FOR MY BIESMEYER FENCE UNDER CONSTRUCTION

876 days ago by Metrotek | 1 comment »

Greetings to all once again; I am attaching photos of the clamp for my new Biesmeyer style fence that is under construction. It came out fairly well.The circular pads are adjustable by carriage bolts threaded in to t-nuts to correct any undesired angularity. The ¾” dowel is a plunger that the cam pushes to lock the fence in place. The two piece pad that the dowel pushes will have an elastomer sandwiched between the pieces to provide a spring action so the cam can over clamp it...

Rounding Plane / Dowel Maker attempt #2: The blade

915 days ago by llwynog | 12 comments »

I am back with a new update which brings us to the current state of the project.First of all, thanks to everyone who shared their interest on this experiment.As I basically make it up as I go along, any advice, past experience or actual tool description is very welcome. I did not have a spare blade lying around so I bought a cheap (still it is high carbon steel and appears to hold an edge decently) block plane blade. I chose a block plane blade as the metal is thicker than many bevel down ...

Shop Made Jigs, Fixtures and Solutions #3: Hexagons, Octagons and Math...oh my!

981 days ago by DaveTPilot | 1 comment »

Hello Guys and Gals, It has been a while since I’ve been on the site, or in the shop for that matter, due to the busy shedule of my new job. I just recently started working in the shop again and it feels great! As some of you may know, I love building shop made jigs and fixtures as well as finding inexpensive solutions to woodworking challenges. I am in the process of building a dovetail jig from plans in a ShopNotes issue. The jig uses threaded knobs. I didn’t have any in t...

Frame Saw Build #2: Blades are in, Conceptual design is out

1037 days ago by PurpLev | 5 comments »

I got my shipment from highlandwoodworking earlier which included the frame saw blades. I couldn’t resist and tried them on some cutoff material to see how well the cut and even freehanded without them being stretched tight they performed real well. I got 2 blades, both 27.5” long. 1 is a 5 TIP for cross cutting and the other 9 TPI for ripping and joinery. Yes, the cross cut blade has a lower TPI but what makes it a cross cut blade is the teeth geometry. In this picture you can...

Extremely Average #83: I love geometry.

1608 days ago by Ecocandle | 0 comments »

The beauty of a fine piece of furniture can be destilled down to the geometry. The angles, the ratios, the use of different colors to create leading lines that take the eye around the piece, just as one would do with a fine painting. I don’t know if most woodworkers use a compass or not, but I have dug mine out and rediscovered my love of geometry. A straight edge, a pencil, a compass and it is amazing what one can calculate. The below picture is my favorite geometry proof. I...
