09-24-2016 06:13 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 5 comments »

Boy and Girls, This blog is to supplement a project I penned earlier, regarding Lathe disk sander with micro adjustment. Please click on the link to read about the micro adjustment feature of the brains behind the underlying mechanism. Just a quick memory twister…. This table was designed using Sketchup and here is a link to it for anyone interested. Again I have not provided measurement as everything depends on the person undertaking the build and their respective timber and hardw...

Making an Aluminum, LDPE, and Oak Mallet

09-12-2016 03:26 AM by beahan | 1 comment »

This mallet was fun to build! It was 3 completely different processes to make each part of it. This was also my first time working with plastic (LDPE) as a medium. I have absolutely no practical use for this thing… I just thought about it one day and it sounded like fun to make! View on YouTube

Miter Saw Station #2: Adding Support and Feet

09-08-2016 02:12 PM by inghamworkshop | 2 comments »

Over the weekend, my daughter and I got to work adding some support to the bottom of the cabinets. My thinking was to add some structural support along with having a good spot to add legs to the bottom of each unit. Once that was finished up, I added the legs to all four corners of each of the cabinets. Next up will be arranging them along the wall and adding the top and setting up my miter saw.

Air Quality #7: Box Fan Air Cleaner

09-05-2016 10:42 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

While brainstorming around for how-to attach Band Saw Fence came up with an idea for using two of the spaces underneath my outfeed table. Decided to make these into box fan air cleaners. Seems like the perfect stop next to table saw and low to the ground. This should help keep the dust away from my mouth and nose :-)

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #3: Face Plate Clean Up

09-04-2016 01:44 PM by inghamworkshop | 0 comments »

I had to come to terms with not being able to restore this piece an keep the original finish, there was just to much corrosion. I used a progression of wet/dry sandpaper starting at 320g an working my way up to 2000g. It came out pretty good and I’ll probably follow this up with some sort of aluminum buffing compound and a buffing wheel.

Start your kids on hand tools. They'll love it!

08-31-2016 05:43 PM by BTimmons | 10 comments »

Turns out that my little girl can rock a spokeshave. She asked me to help her make a mallet for her to use in the shop. I thought that was a dandy idea, so we set to it. We glued up a few pieces of cherry for the head of the mallet. Then I showed her how to use a spokeshave on rectilinear stock, in order to take off the hard corners and make it more hand-friendly. For those of you wanting to get your kids to spend time in the shop with you, let them use a spokeshave. It’s the ki...

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #2: 113.29990 Cleaning Face Plate

08-31-2016 02:07 AM by inghamworkshop | 2 comments »

I’m looking for som help and guidance here. I decided to try and tackle the cleaning of the silver plate on the front of the saw, which I believe is aluminum, and I’m hoping someone more knowledgeable than me can help. Here’s what I started with: My initial thought was to use water, mild soap and a nylon bristle brush. That did clean a good portion of the large easy to get stuff, but it’s left me with this. I don’t want to do something that I can&#...

Miter Saw Station #1: Cabinet Refinish

08-29-2016 05:35 AM by inghamworkshop | 0 comments »

Earlier this spring, my dad brought over his old cabinets that he’d used for his shop workbench. He’s had these longer than I can even remember and is finally upgrading his set up at his shop and offered them to me. I’ve been wanting to build a miter saw station and was planning on trying the Jay Bates station when I had the funds available to buy all of the necessary lumber. Now that I have these cabinets, I’m going to utilize them to do a sort of hybrid version ...
