A Twist on The Wood Whisperer Crosscut Sled Slot Repair

10-17-2017 05:14 PM by Rich | 3 comments »

I needed to repair the slot on my crosscut sled (actually three of them) after aligning my table saw. The blade widened the slot enough that the zero-clearance feature of them was gone. I decided to give The Wood Whisperer's epoxy fix a try. After doing the first sled, a small parts one I wouldn’t mind re-making if this screwed up, I found that the bottom of the slot was perfect because the tape held the epoxy perfectly level, while the cleanup on the top surface (where the boards ...

Shop stuff #106: No Lathe Chisel Handles

10-06-2017 01:17 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

My first time ever using a draw knife. These are the first chisels I ever bought and the handles have given up on them. I don’t have a lathe, so you work with what you have and learn and have fun at the same time. My son has recently shown an interest in woodworking so these will be his first set of chisels.

Restoration of an Infill Plane

09-29-2017 02:28 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 0 comments »

View on YouTube I had gotten this plane off of ebay initially. The seller is actually selling her father’s antique collection, sadly he passed away at a young age from cancer and has left her his collection. I decided to restore the plane and give her a little video of it so she could see what was being done with the tool. I didn’t want this tool to just sit on a shelf so I decided to give it a proper repair and put it to work. The blade is a bit narrow for the body but that&...

Home Made Tools and Jigs #3: Shopsmith Tool Rest Upgrade - Cheap, Easy, and Very Effective

09-26-2017 11:53 PM by Jerry | 14 comments »

I know all of you Shopsmith owners out there that do any turning quickly get frustrated with having to set the tool rest position with an Allen wrench, it’s tedious and fidgety. Shopsmith’s solution, the Universal Tool Rest is predictably expensive at over $200.00. My solution was to make two wooden handles, tap them with a 5/16 X 18 tap, and screw a 5/16 X 18X 3” screw into the hole, which is about 1 1/4” deep. This makes adjustments very quick and easy compa...

Shop stuff #104: Deck build Pt 1

09-19-2017 05:42 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I posted the video of the mobile home skirting on my You Tube channel but did not put it here at Lumberjocks as I didn’t think it was very relevant to wood working. But I did the skirting because I (well, the wife actually) wanted to build a small deck. Much easier to put the skirting on first, so that determined the order of operations. I missed taking a lot of footage but this is a very condensed version of the build. There will be at least another part, maybe 2. It was a big lon...

Portable Carving Board

09-14-2017 08:07 AM by Druid | 13 comments »

I’ve been thinking about creating a Portable Carving Board that would act as a third hand to hold some types of carvings as I work on them. This would be for portable use when I carve while away from home. Normally, I have used an inexpensive plastic cutting board (typically used as a kitchen chopping board) placed across my legs, or on a table to protect the tabletop. One problem with the plastic board is that the carving is free to slide around on the slippery surface, so I thought th...

Delta 46-715 Lathe Hack

09-08-2017 07:26 PM by denverdan | 1 comment »

My lathe has been working great since I rebuilt the pulley system with one exception. Sometimes it’s really hard to take the chuck off of the spindle. On the original pulley there were indexing holes and a indexing plunger lock that would lock the spindle allowing the chuck to come off after use. Since my pulleys didn’t have the holes there wasn’t a way to lock the spindle. Not a huge issue, but kind of a PIA. Normally I would use a couple wrenches and eventually it...
