Looking for Hygrometer and Barometer

10-09-2010 06:02 AM by wichle | 2 comments »

I am looking for a Barometer and Hygrometer to build a desk-top widget. Woodcraft sells instruments for this kind of project. BUT! They are too small. I am looking for round instruments that are 3” in diameter with an added mounting flange around the circumference about a quarter inch in width. I would like the instrument to protrude from the mounting no more than three eights of an inch. Any sources??

A little more breakdown....

10-08-2010 06:15 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 2 comments »

I picked up the bearings today. They’re made in Japan. I can deal with that. For about $23.00 my mind will rest easier while I’m running the saw, not being paranoid of a 50+ year bearing going kaput and sending blades my direction. Also, I finished breaking the saw down into multiple parts and took a few better pictures. Have a look at the album to see them. I left all of the smaller rusty parts soaking in some old Evaporust overnight. Let me drop a little information...

Anyone up for a Lumberjock Gettogether in Mid-Michigan

10-06-2010 11:10 PM by jockmike2 | 23 comments »

I talked to Billy J. the other day, David Craig and Rustic Rick, they all liked the idea but Rick didn’t want to have anything to do with the planning, and I don’t blame him. He’s had a hand, along with me in two of the last 3 get togethers we had. He said something about a gettogether at a woodworking show, but I’m talking about a meal together with friends, maybe sharing some wood with each other or something. The last one was great, but it was too long ago. I would ...

Cutting Board: How To's #2: Zig Zag Cutting Board Patterns - Inspirational

10-05-2010 09:19 PM by McLeanVA | 22 comments »

I was absolutely overwhelmed by the positive response to my Zig Zag How To blog post yesterday, that I decided to brainstorm some possible combinations (on my lunch break) using the basic steps I outlined yesterday. All of the same techniques and steps apply, and really the only difference is the woods and measurements that make up the original “sticks.” Same rules apply to width = height. Length is up to you. Please experiment with whatever measurements and combinations strike...

Performax 16/32 Drum Sander #2

10-05-2010 03:52 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 4 comments »

Well, I’ve had some time to use my new tool acquisition and have discovered a few things (I’m sometimes a SLOW learner). My performax is of the older vintage and has a 2.5” exhaust port with a 4” adapter so I connected it to my Oneida cyclone system and went to work. BAD IDEA….....The Oneida system is a GREAT system but, cleaning the internal filter is not the easiest thing to do. SO, after using the sander for a relative short period I noticed that the suctio...
