Robert Sorby ProEdge look alike

03-23-2016 09:29 PM by Dutchy | 13 comments »

A couple of years ago I bought my lathe. From time to time I use him as a lathe (mostly he is used as a disksander) and in particular for cylinders. For making the cylinders I use TC tools with changeable knives. I also have a couple of HSS turning tools. Till now I could not sharpen them as I would like. I like the Robert Sorby ProEdge, but with a price of more than Euro 600 too expensive for me. So last week I decided to give it a try to build my own and for me it was successful. Started...

Shop Remodel #8: It's Monday, Back to the Ole Grind.

12-01-2015 12:41 AM by bearkatwood | 14 comments »

It’s Monday and it’s back to the ole grind I go. This is another blog in my ongoing series to remodel my shop and make a saw till, drill press cabinet, tool cabinet, plane till and workbench. I have been woodworking for 16+ years and have always done my work in dark, dusty caves on anything that would resemble a bench. I have finally decided to spoil myself and go hog wild doing it. I wanted to bring you all along as I made these pieces as it will be a very epic build. I have ...

File Chisel Build #1: Part 1: The shaping and grinding

06-20-2015 08:03 PM by Sanderguy777 | 0 comments »

This is my first try at this blog thing so any advice is welcome. I’m sorry for the lack of pics but I thought of posting this after I cut the file. Anyway, I needed a wide chisel and I had a file that was oversized so I chopped it up and started grinding away…. This is the part that I will use on this project. After I had cut it, I thought that I should have measured so that the finished product would span a 2×4. So if you do this, remember to measure…. This i...

My shop #3: Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools?

02-08-2015 03:34 PM by Dutchy | 10 comments »

Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools? It,s up to you. For the small machines I have thought making flipover stands, but on one stand I could put two, maybe three, machines on it. After thinking and trying I came to a solution and put five machines on a small bench. I can use all five without a lot of change. Overvieuw: Drawers for drills and so on: Drill table hanging on the left side: Drill press with mounted table: On the back a flexible drilling shaft and also p...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #2: Tach, Toilet and Grinder

01-02-2015 12:46 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 3 comments »

The tachometer came in yesterday. Now, I’m ready to start working on determining the pulley sizes. I did read, understand and follow all the instructions that came with the my tachometer. After putting the refective sticker on the flywheel of the motor, I was able to determine that the maximum speed of the motor is 6200 RPM’s. That speed is about twice as fast as I need it so my pulley ratio should be around 1:2. I found a pulley calculator online and I have an idea of the size...

Tools #3: Grinding and polishing station

03-18-2014 12:19 AM by PASs | 3 comments »

I have a thing for filing cabinets. I have 19 (nineteen) in my shop.I get them for free or dirt cheap off Craig’s List. And they are all high quality (Hon or equivalent.)A couple weeks ago I decided to consolidate my two grinders on separate stations into one master station.My main grinder was set on a rolling tool stand. It has the lathe sharpening setup underneath. The second grinder is a cheapo for general purpose grinding. The goal was to mount them back-to-back in the (futile...

Prairie Tool Co. Model 85 Grinder Restoration #3: Grinder tool rest

11-26-2012 05:08 AM by Rick M. | 0 comments »

Inspired by Rmac’s tool rest here: After building the base I decided to simplify things a bit, eliminating the sliding piece on top as I won’t be needing it and using a single pivoting support under the tool bed allowing greater range of angles. I used 3/4” material instead of 1/2”. It’s not quite done, there is a 1/4” dowel acting as the pivot pin until I get to the store and buy a 1/4” carriage bolt and wingn...

Prairie Tool Co. Model 85 Grinder Restoration #2: Elbow grease and regular grease, applied.

11-25-2012 05:34 AM by Rick M. | 4 comments »

After disassembling, cleaning, greasing, oiling and reassembling, I scraped and wire brushed the exterior then applied a coat of light coat of oil and wiped off the excess. She purrs like a kitten now. Better image of the unusual grease zerk. It can actually be seen now that I’ve removed about 1/16” of crud. Voila! This thing spins like a top, they sure knew how to make ‘em back in the day. It’ll outlast me. The original intent was to degrease...

Prairie Tool Co. Model 85 Grinder Restoration #1: Revitalizing a hand crank grinder

11-25-2012 01:43 AM by Rick M. | 3 comments »

This came in today, a hand crank grinder, model 85, from Prairie Tool Co. Prairie du Chien, WI.; made sometime after 1920. Auction photo. My pics. These are all before I took it apart, cleaned, oiled/greased. I’ll get new pics after dinner. For some reason my youtube video is not showing up. FIXED! The threads were in rough shape. After buying a 7/16×20 nut and filing the threads a bit I finally realized they were left handed… another trip to the har...
