Rockler Quick-Release Front Vise Install

96 days ago by iamcliff | 6 comments »

I’ve wanted a vise for quite some time. I was finally able to get one with some money I received for Christmas. I went with the Rockler quick-release front vise. I wanted the Veritas one, but there were other things I needed as well, so I went with the cheaper option so that I could get those other things. I don’t have a workbench yet, so it was a little more difficult to install in the worktable which I built before I really knew what I needed. It’s really just a big...

Machinist Toolcart #10: Drawers Part III: Decisions and Actions

1060 days ago by PurpLev | 4 comments »

I was holding off on the last (lower and larger) drawers due to lack of material which in essence was a good thing as It made me rethink those drawer dimensions and ended up with what I believe is a better build, but more about that later. What was the issue? The lower 3 drawers are the largest/tallest at 6”, 5”, and 5”, but I only had enough materials for 3 ~2.5” tall drawers + some additional material but not enough to glue material together to give me 6”...

Chi Omega Dorm Room #7: Installed

1834 days ago by Chris Davis | 6 comments »

This is the installation of the 17 beds in the Chi Omega house. These were installed in the third floor attic rooms. It all went fairly smooth. Everything fit together like it was suppose to, nothing got damaged on the way there, and we made good time, considering total travel time was 6 hours up there an back. We installed them in 5 hours with 5 people. We did have one problem, contractor wasn’t finished with the smaller room that was to house the 4 bookcase bunk beds. We assembled the...

Bowling Alley Workbench #7: Moving forward at 0mph

1836 days ago by PurpLev | 8 comments »

It’s interesting how it feels like you’re standing still when you’re working on already dry-fit parts for additional features. After all – at the end of the day when you look at all the parts – they seem to look just the way they did in the morning. bummer. but even though things don’t seem that way somethings. Progress IS progress, and is one step closer to the finish line. Today I implemented the hardware for the leg vise in the right leg (I’m...

Tablesaw Improvements #4: Jess-Em Mast-R-Slide

2222 days ago by Jon3 | 3 comments »

My quite predictable runup probably made it clear, but one of the reasons behind all these modifications (aside from the extra ripping room, which is DEFINITELY worth the effort alone, was that a few months ago, I got a 30% off rockler coupon that forgot to exclude power tool accessories and jess-em stuff. So I took that in, along with some saved gift cards, and walked out with… A Jess-Em Mast-R-Slide sliding table! Whoo Hoo! This poor thing has been sitting in my shop gazing ...

Quarter Size Cherry Quilt Chests #6: Installing a Makers-Mark

2581 days ago by David | 9 comments »

This blog entry shows how I install the small (1 inch diameter x 3mm thick) brass Makers-Marks on my projects. I like the traditional feel that the labels give a project. I prefer painting the recess black so that when the label is installed there is a small subtle black reveal line around the outside edge. This is strictly personal preference. This Installing a Makers Mark Tutorial is available as a PDF download on my website I get my labels from a very kind chap in England – his conta...
