Workbench #1: Vice Screws

03-01-2015 02:28 AM by kokayak | 2 comments »

Starting to work on the hardware for the Holtzapffel bench I am planing. Going to DIY my own wagon vice as I can’t afford the Benchcrafted Cadillac. Use Enco had a sale on Acme rod so I bought 3 3’ sections of 3/4” 6tpi acme rod, nuts and 3 hand screws. I only plan on using 12” sections of rod for the Moxon style twin screw and the wagon vice. The handwheels came without a hole bored in them so I drilled them out to 5/8” then used a grinder to take a short sectio...

Scrolling with Asthma #3: Vacuum Cart

02-13-2015 07:47 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

So I was surfing the net and found a video about a guy (a real woodworker) making a cart for his vacuum and accessories. This is of real interest to me as I have got to be real careful of breathing and the lungs. So I said, ” I have already got the cart so just build the rest. Started by rounding up all of my vacuum accessories (I think) and planning how to best store them. I came up with a system of three shelves. The first on has a cut out to fit the different size vacuum ...

My shop #3: Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools?

02-08-2015 03:34 PM by Dutchy | 10 comments »

Is my shop to small or do I have to many tools? It,s up to you. For the small machines I have thought making flipover stands, but on one stand I could put two, maybe three, machines on it. After thinking and trying I came to a solution and put five machines on a small bench. I can use all five without a lot of change. Overvieuw: Drawers for drills and so on: Drill table hanging on the left side: Drill press with mounted table: On the back a flexible drilling shaft and also p...

If you do plan to make your own, try something on the order of 10 parts (or a little less) water to one part Gorilla White Wood Glue. The ratios may vary with species and porosity of the wood. Use: Distilled Water (Can be pur...

Nightstand #1: Plan

02-01-2015 10:08 AM by Nate66 | 0 comments »

I have sleep apnea and currently just use a simple stand for my CPAP machine. I thought is would be wise to build a nightstand to put it in to help reduce the noise of the pump hum to help give my wife a good nights sleep as well so I designed a nightstand to contain my CPAP machine in a felt lined area to make it virtually sound proof as well as a drawer to contain all the spares and bits and bobs. Have a look.

Tools, Jigs & Fixtures #1: Incremental Circle Cutting Guide

02-01-2015 12:35 AM by bobkberg | 2 comments »

As I mentioned in my Cajon project post, I had some trouble cutting a circle to PERFECTLY fit the inside diameter of the drum, so I stopped for a couple of weeks to figure out how to cut exactly the circle size I wanted, and if too big, how to cut it down. I had been using a piece of melamine coated particle board with lots of holes drilled in it for many years and it worked just fine. But you can’t drill small holes right next to each other in particle board, ...
