Box Building #5: Barrel Hinge Installation

03-22-2012 09:50 PM by Kent Shepherd | 21 comments »

After showing some of my boxes in “Projects”. I have received some inquiries about the installation of the barrel hinges I sometimes use. I hope this helps for some of you. I know it will be overkill for many of you, so just use what you wish. With any type hinge, the layout is critical. These hinges are simple to install, but you must get your holes in the right place. If you don’t, I can assure you , you will not like the results, and you will not be able to go back and...

Shop Improvements #1: Hardware Rack

11-30-2011 03:26 AM by wolflrv | 5 comments »

In the process of organizing the shop I had definite need of hardware storage. I had an old dresser that I revamped and used it for the larger parts, but the small stuff was overwhelming. I had 5 generic boxes and bought 5 more plano 3700 boxes to sort everything into. Here’s a pic of the sorting process which took over 9hrs to finish…LOL! It was a long day! Next I built a rack to hold all 10 of the boxes. I used some surplus PT 1×2 stock that I had. Here’s a pi...

Machinist Toolbox #10: Wrapping it up - Lee Valley Style

12-29-2010 07:51 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Not much to say, nor anything to show in this post. Just received the locking hardware from Lee Valley which was the last thing I needed to finish this build at this point. I thought about making the locking set myself, but seeing the set LV offers it just didn’t make any sense so I just ordered it from them with the Free Shipping they offer this week. arrived in 2 days and installed today – very nice set, and works like a charm. The set I got is this one: And can be foun...

Did I Ever Tell You Folks That I'm a Junk-a-holic?

10-28-2010 04:28 PM by helluvawreck | 47 comments »

Folks, I’m a junk-a-holic. I don’t know how to put it any other way than that. Here are some pictures of some of my junk. Most of it is electro-mechanical stuff, power-transmission stuff, machine parts, old machines, and hardware. The last two pictures are the two ways you can get to my office. If you ever do drop by please don’t ever get lost because you may never find your way back out. We call this the Dungeon. :-[ ...

The Doors Last time I glued up the door fronts: I spent some time fitting the doors with a plane: And then I passed them through the drum sander to flatten them: This little marking jig came with the hinge drill bit I bought: Drilling the holes for the hinges: Aligning the hinges: The Skinny Door I’ve been going back and forth on whether or not to cover the space where the DVD player shelf is. I finally decided it needed a cover of some ki...

The Small Stuff

03-20-2010 11:48 AM by David Craig | 7 comments »

There was a book written a few years ago entitled Don’t Sweat the Small Stuff. While I am not an advocate of violence, I do sometimes entertain the thoughts of various purgatories for the author. I do understand Richard Carlson’s point about trying to live life stress free and not worry so much about little things, but it is the little things that often make or break us. As Charles Bukowski once wrote - it’s not the large things thatsend a man to themadhouse, death he&...

Bowling Alley Workbench #7: Moving forward at 0mph

07-13-2009 03:21 AM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

It’s interesting how it feels like you’re standing still when you’re working on already dry-fit parts for additional features. After all – at the end of the day when you look at all the parts – they seem to look just the way they did in the morning. bummer. but even though things don’t seem that way somethings. Progress IS progress, and is one step closer to the finish line. Today I implemented the hardware for the leg vise in the right leg (I’m...

Sketchup Resources #4: Lee Valley/Veritas Tail Vise Screw Hardware

07-09-2009 05:04 AM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

Now that I received the tail vises for my workbench, I have modeled them in Sketchup so that I can play around with it for a more precise location and drilling plans before I have to physically deal with the heavy top material. This model is design to be light and fast, and as such does not go into vast details such as screw spirals etc. Instead it is designed to be used for measurements and sizing, both in terms of the actual hardware measurements and shapes, and screw hole locations. ...
