Spray Guns

12-19-2009 01:20 AM by tazz | 3 comments »

Hi everyone, well, this is my first blog, at least I think it’s a blog. I have been making toy boxes for about the last month and Believe it or not, I can’t keep up with the demand. I have made 5 toy boxes and have 3 more to do before Xmas. And my next customer wants it painted. I don’t want to buy 4 or 5 cans of spray paint, which brings me to my Question. I am looking for a spray gun to buy but don’t know much about spray guns. Of course I want it to do everything, Paint, Stain, and ...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #2: Arched Candle Holder

12-17-2009 07:05 PM by sras | 4 comments »

I changed the title of this series since this next entry uses wood I don’t think I could ever throw away (it used to say “burn bucket” instead of “scrap pile”). I have had these this planks of cherry for a long time. They are about 24”x3.25”x1/8”. This is another case where I do not have a design, but I’ll figure it out as I go… I had cut them for a project that didn’t work out and they have sat ever since. I decided to ...

Fold Down Train Layout #1: Prototype/Interim around the tree (with pix)

12-14-2009 06:52 PM by Dan Lyke | 1 comment »

Just to give the payoff early, here’s a video, no sound, skip to the last third if you want to see the fold-up action: I like model railroads. When I was a kid, my dad worked with a guy named Bill Kennedy who had the Ramapo Valley Railroad in his basement. It was HO scale, super highly detailed, snaked through several rooms, had walk-around throttles, and was featured in a magazine or two.. Years later I picked up an N scale train to run around the Christmas three, picked up a copy...

Drill Clutch, Use them or lose Them?????? #1: Drill Clutch, Use Them or Lose Them?????

12-12-2009 09:21 PM by Tony Z | 25 comments »

Here’s a quick poll for everyone. Almost all cordless drills now come equipped with a clutch with up to 20+ settings. Does anyone out there use them???? I keep mine set on the most powerfull setting, or on my drills, the setting with the picture of the drill bit. If I need some finesse, in driving a screw for example, I just take my time and feather the trigger. What are your thoughts? I will post the results after I get enough responses. Please answer with the following answers: A. ...

A perl script for sizing Sawmill Creek style cutting boards

12-11-2009 09:51 PM by Llarian | 5 comments »

I’m lazy and like to use computers to do things for me, so I threw this together quickly. =) I wanted to make some Sawmill Creek style cutting boards, sized to fit in a medium flat rate box, and didn’t feel like doing the math. (Cutting board tutorial here: http://www.sawmillcreek.org/articles/2/) The length doesn’t matter, but you need to take into account kerf size and such when figuring how much wood you need to make these, and I made it calculate the blade offset...
