I Need Help With an Old Craftsman Table Saw

08-16-2009 10:18 PM by LouJC | 5 comments »

I recently aquired an “Old Craftsman Table Saw”, When I found out that I could get it, I couldn’t get there to pick it up fast enough. It is a beautiful piece of equipment. I have cleaned it up ( I think it’s been in a chicken barn for the last 35 years -lol- ), fabricated a vacume dust shute for it and baught a new blade. BUT of course nothing is ever free, I need a motor and rip fence for it. The motor I can get anywhere, the rip fence is what I need HELP with. Anyon...

Need plan for table saw dust collection.

08-02-2009 12:51 AM by John Gray | 4 comments »

I purchased the hood shown in the link below. http://www.pennstateind.com/store/R-TDHOOD.html And I want to install it on my Ridgid TA3650 saw. Now comes the good part!!! I had a plan to build a unit that incorporates the hood. The unit is 3/4” plywood (2’x4 1/2’ approx.) that bolts between the saw and the stand, you screw the dust hood to the plywood. The plan shows a drawer and shelf using the plywood “overhang” to the left of the saw and a shelf on t...

Barrister Abomination #1: Getting started, not sure where I'm going

06-15-2009 04:55 AM by BeachedBones | 5 comments »

I’m working at making something of a couple damaged and mismatched sections of barrister bookcase. The two sections are basically surplus from the “good” cases I have. These didn’t fit, one section was badly fire damaged and oddly repaired at one point. I thought I could make it a little better and more useful. This picture shows the fire damaged section, the side had been planed down in an uneven taper, about 1/4 inch or more was taken out of the original oak. ...

The Handicap Cabinet for a little girl #1: The Inatallation

05-28-2009 02:11 AM by dryhter | 8 comments »

I installed the vanity today and shot a short Video of what it looked like in place. The girl seemed very excited about the new bathroom cabinets but has yet to try them out,I hope she is happy with the configuration. I asked the parents to keep in touch and let me know if any tweaking of the design might be needed for future projects or adapted to others with similar needs.

How do I woodburn? #1: Can someone help me learn to woodburn?

03-09-2009 02:17 AM by laurasautographs | 3 comments »

I don’t know if this is where you would put this, but I’m new here. I have always been interested in woodburning, but I’m not sure how. Is there anyone who could give me tips or some tutorials on how to woodburn things? I have a pretty nice burner, but I’m not to good, so any help would be appreciated.

He is married, has a wonderful wife, and three wonderful children, two boys and one girl. He was a policeman, until tragic events on the job forever changed his life. Henrie is physically...

07-24-2008 02:06 AM by Davidramsey03 | 5 comments »

BEFORE I START, IF YOU READ THIS, AND CAN OFFER ADVICE ON IMPROVING THIS WITHOUT BUYING ANYTHING OVER $25, I’D LOVE TO HEAR YOUR ADVICE. THANKS IN ADVANCE!!!!!

I Started by laying them together, checki...

Does anyone know anything about the art of coopering?

06-21-2008 11:29 PM by jockmike2 | 17 comments »

I am in the process making a couple large teardrop shaped supports for a table, but know absolutely nothing about coopering and the two supports are rather large. Is there an expert among the Lumberjocks that could give me some pointers or ideas where to hunt for information that would be of help to a begginer. That’s the reason I’m asking here rather than a blind search on line. I could search for days and get no where. I have a basic understanding of what coopering is and unders...
