Homemade Band Saw #1: Getting started...

405 days ago by dakremer | 10 comments »

I’ve been keeping my eye on WoodGears for a while now. I’d love to build all of his contraptions, but don’t have the time or the space at the moment. I’ve been wanting to build his bandsaw for some time now, and finally took the plunge. Plus I just got my tax refund back, and instead of buying an expensive bandsaw (a tool I currently do not own), why not just make one? I will try and keep the blog current and take as many pictures as I can. Hopefully most of the p...

Homemade router milling machine ready to launch for others to enjoy.

434 days ago by Mark55 | 7 comments »

I have posted my machine on here a couple times and kept promising that I was going to get it to the point where I would have plans ready for it. This has turned out to be a very daunting task . At first glance of the machine it does not look too overwhelming. But, when you break it down there are many many parts and details to make this thing work the way it does. Before I go any farther though there is one person on here I want to thank for all the help . I would not have gotten this far wi...

Oh, well, anyway, I will recut and resolder an older blade from my shop bandsaw next time i go to the parents’. I also ...

Homemade tools

647 days ago by A Slice of Wood Workshop | 11 comments »

Yesterday I got a little adventurous, threw caution to the wind and instead of buying some tools, I made my own. I first made a cabinet scraper. I had to clean up the metal a little. After I got the metal almost all nice and shiny I had to make an edge on one side. I slapped a file in a vise and slid the scraper along it laying down. You have to make sure that the scraper to the file is 90° so the it creates burrs on both sides. This is how the scraper works. I got some little shavings while ...
