While it’s been a while since I last posted, I’m still working on this a couple days a week. Painting takes a lot of time.All the baltic birch plywood gets a coat of epoxy on the edges to seal them. This keeps the paint from soaking into the end grain, and lets you get away with 2 coats from the rattle can. I’ve been painting most of the small parts for the last few weeks. It’s really a week long process.Seal edges with epoxy, led cure for 2 days before painting.San...
A few years ago I built a bunch of bar clamps for my shop. The original post can be seen here [link] While they work adequately and I use them, I’ve always been a little dissatisfied with the movable stop (second picture above.) When edge gluing, they tend to force the wood up off the bar of the clamp. Also setting up for the glue up is a bit time consuming with having to unscrew the eye bolt and find the right hole and such. So Today my old clamps got noticed again, so I de...
https://www.youtube.com/watch?feature=player_detailpage&v=9QzZ1xVC51s I’ve been kind of slacking with this bandsaw. I had to redo both wheels because the first time I did not glue them up nice and flat. I lost interest/got busy for a while, and put it off. I’m now determined to get it finished!! I shot this quick video of it running after I remade the wheels. The wheels aren’t balanced yet, so there is some vibration – you can see the Nickel is standing...
Woodworking I am fairly comfortable with. All this new technology stuff, I am not. This is my first blog entry…ever….anywhere. I have been a member here and on a few other forums (of varying interests) for a number of years but I’ve never been a “contributor” in any real way. My wife (whom I love DEARLY) recently suggested that I start “getting my name out there” in an attempt to possibly start a business (albeit small and part time) so that people c...
Well, it all started out with a trip to buy an air cleaner off of craig’s list some time ago. I saw a used Jet AFS-1000B for sale for about $150. After checking out the spec’s, I thought, gee, this would work great, 30×24x12, that’s not too big, I can find a place for it…. Drove about 1.5 hours round trip to discover that hey 30×24x12 is actually too BIG! I imagined myself hanging this thing near the step down that I have entering my garage and knocking mysel...
I’ve been building a disc sander that is powered by my lathe it’s constructed with plywood, and consists of four pieces that have to be put together in sequence to form the disc sander. the first piece has a key that slips in the tool slot on the bed rail of my lathe it forms one of the chambers of the dust collection, it also recieves the dust colection shroud (or would that be called a cowling?) the first piece slides up tight to the power head on my lathe. The se...

Hello. I have wanted to have a longer lathe for a while, and I could foresee the need for it in some future projects. Then someone wanted me to make something for them that required me to turn a couple things longer than my 14” Jet mini lathe could handle. So I decided to get a bed extension. I had already tried turning them on my spring pole lathe which is longer, but turning dry hard maple is near impossible on one, particularily going from square to circular. So I looked online...
