Delta 46-715 Lathe Hack

09-08-2017 07:26 PM by denverdan | 1 comment »

My lathe has been working great since I rebuilt the pulley system with one exception. Sometimes it’s really hard to take the chuck off of the spindle. On the original pulley there were indexing holes and a indexing plunger lock that would lock the spindle allowing the chuck to come off after use. Since my pulleys didn’t have the holes there wasn’t a way to lock the spindle. Not a huge issue, but kind of a PIA. Normally I would use a couple wrenches and eventually it...

Building a better woodshop #4: bandsaw inserts holder

09-05-2017 08:37 AM by Sodabowski | 0 comments »

Hi folks,This completed project dates back to June 2016, I didn’t find the time to post so here comes.This is my bandsaw, small entry level but it really does the job with proper blades, of which I have several sizes and pitches. So I change inserts quite often. The factory insert was a crap piece of plastic, which I’m not going to show (too shameful), but here is one of my shopmade inserts in place: And so I finally made the jump and built this blank inserts holder. ...

Musing of an Old Geezer #4: Play it Forward!

09-01-2017 10:10 PM by GnarlyErik | 3 comments »

When I was a kid around┬áseven or eight, entertainment choices were a lot slimmer then than now. Like many boys back then, I would gather a few scraps of wood, ‘borrow’ my dad’s hammer, get my hands on a few nails and ‘make’ something. No design, just start nailing things together with a decidedly nebulous idea of what I was actually making. But, everyone has to start somewhere right?. Today it seems that many kids that age are obsessed with iPad and computer g...

Restoring The Machine Plow Plane (Kikai Shakuri Kanna)

08-22-2017 01:16 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 1 comment »

View on YouTube If you haven’t noticed I am a big fan of the Japanese methods and thoughts behind woodworking. And as such I do alot of reading on the topic and ever since I saw a drawing of one of these planes in Toshio Odate’s book on tools I have wanted one very badly. I’d wager that each craftsman has his favorite tool, something that he just enjoys for no reason other than “he simply does”. this tool is it for me. The challenge of it I find invigorating. W...

Bandsaw tension quick release addition

08-19-2017 06:18 PM by Oldtool | 1 comment »

I am currently in between projects and seeking something to do in the shop, so I decided to install a bandsaw tension release lever. My bandsaw is an Hatachi model CB13F, 12 inch saw that was also sold by Sears with the Craftsman model number 137.224320. Not interested in starting from scratch, I looked around the internet and found two possibly easy adaptable solutions by Grizzly; a lever device and a (as they call it) clutch device. I decided the easiest one to try would be the clutch re...

Lock Miter Router Bit Setup

08-09-2017 06:36 PM by Rich | 23 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.
