Lock Miter Router Bit Setup

08-09-2017 06:36 PM by RichTaylor | 10 comments »

There was some discussion about lock miter bits on Rick M’s Deals thread. I didn’t want to muck up his thread with off-topic conversation, so I am tossing this out there for anyone who is not certain about setting up lock miter bits. First, a diagram (the numbers shown are for the Infinity Lock Miter Jr. Router Bit item #55-502). Note that the markings are for reference only and, particularly in the case of the fence location, don’t precisely represent the actual set up....

Dutch Tool Chest Build-a-long #6: A new take on a tool rack

08-02-2017 02:58 AM by Brian Gulotta | 14 comments »

It has been a while but I am finally back onto my tool chest build. I finished the back and came up with a new idea on the tool rack that I haven’t seen done yet on another dutch tool chest. I believe it maximizes the amount of tools it can hold and works great. I am using a 1” oak dowel that is going through both sides of the chest. I glued, wedged and flush cut to the outside of the chest. Next is to work on the saw till and dividers for my bench planes. Stay tuned.

Five Projects to Help Kids Learn the Craft of Nailing

07-25-2017 11:09 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Looking back at the first year I taught woodworking my main mistakes were making projects too difficult and assuming kids could use tools, at least a little. Wrong. Most kids had never picked up a tool, and the ones who had really didn’t know how to use them. Nailing is a perfect example. Kids emphasize pounding, which is not surprising. They don’t pay attention to where the nails go. There was never a thought to drilling a pilot hole first (how would they know) and when they tried to nail ...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 5 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...

Hand Tool Woodworking #1: How I got started

07-06-2017 07:23 PM by Rwolinski | 4 comments »

Just a note that I’ll add to from time to time.I started woodworking with power tools and migrated to hand tools. Kinda backwards. but that is how it happened.Norm Abram was my hero but I found I couldn’t keep up with his tools.Then I found guys like Frank Klausz, who just by their passion got me started using my hand tools.Now I do more with them than power tools to be continued…..

Kids and the Hand Operaterd Drill Press

07-01-2017 09:41 PM by Jack McKee | 2 comments »

Kids and the Hand Operated Drill Press https://www.youtube.com/edit?o=U&video_id=tRAOO72GHfg3rd or 4th graders learn quickly, younger kids take longer. I found a hand-operated drill press at an antique tool sale. It makes many drilling operations easier and safer. With it, a child doesn’t have to support the weight of the drill or hold it straight. The feed mechanism allows her to apply more pressure to the bit. Kids enjoy using it. Many types of hand-operated drill presses were mad...
