Exhaust Heat Shield (toy trucks) drilling indexing jig

11-02-2018 02:45 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 9 comments »

Boys and Girls, Haven’t posted for a while other than make annoying comments to others’ posts. Thought I’d slip in this quickie little blog to give you guys a chance to reciprocate. I was besotted by J’1974’s build of one of his models using a “perforated” exhaust heat shield. He even went to the trouble of writing up a blog. With my failing eyesight bolstered by ill fitting glasses, I contemplated that there must be an easier way to do it ...

Shop jigs #1: Wheel making jig number 3

10-14-2018 03:37 AM by htl | 13 comments »

This is wheel jig number 3. Make sure your eyes are rested and you have your reading glasses handy it’s a long one. Here’s the kind a wheels I can make with this jig. I seem to never quit finding I need to adjust my jig for different sized wheels, and have been building more modern cars that use small wheels even though they are not small models.The case in point was my last build a Mustang, I blow up the plans to be twice as big and the wheels were still under 2̶...

DIY Jigs / How-to Woodworking #5: Magnetic Japanese Handsaw Guide

05-12-2018 06:42 PM by Humus Workshop | 6 comments »

Hi there! The nature of the project is so simple that I do not even need to upload so many photos, with just one is enough. The results, to be concise, is that this little jig has been very simple to do it and very effective at the same time. As a detail I can mention that I have covered the corners with a 1 mm acrylic sheet, this makes the blade does not touch directly the magnets to does not loose the alignment. In the following video you can watch my step by step to do it: https:...

Handy tools #5: 45 degree jig

05-02-2018 11:00 PM by Dave Polaschek | 11 comments »

I used this shop-made jig while cutting dovetails for 135 degree corners (for making an octagonal box). It’s just a piece of 2×4 cut on the diagonal, then glued back together. The piece on the left above slides onto the piece on the right, and then the whole thing goes into a vise to hold the piece you’re working on at a 45 degree angle so you can saw on the level while cutting 45 degree angles in things. I started using it “head-on” but quickly realized it was use...

EDIT 13 Mar 2018Part 2 explains it more clearly and works for even spaced and uneven spaced fingers. While thinking about making a joint that is similar to making Box Joints, I came up with the idea to use my 5 Minute Kerf maker and Small Sled to make Box Joints. It works like thisYou use a stop block and spacers and the Kerf Maker on the sled to cut the Box Joint Fingers. The 1st step is to align everything for the 1st cut. I switched the spacers and the Kerf Maker around to save...

Table Saw Sled with small parts hold-down

01-26-2018 02:13 PM by CampD | 3 comments »

I’ve finally, I say finally utilized my YouTube channel. I’ve been taking Vid’s and pic’s of my projects for years but never really took the time to learn to edit and produce a worthy video. I tried to get my Electrical Engineer millennial Son whose extremely versed in this process to help the old man out, but, some of you may know how this goes. You see, I’d much rather be in the shop than take the time to learn a new program or even doing office work (like typi...

Shop Projects #2: Table Saw Miter Sled

10-20-2017 05:42 PM by BrettGoodermote | 2 comments »

After having made my 1st table saw sled, I knew I had to have a miter sled as well. A few weeks ago I really found myself at a loss when I needed to make some accurate 45-degree angles for the clock I was making for my wife. I had previously watched a number of videos on this subject and found a method that looked like it would suit my needs and available materials. Here is a pretty good picture of the sled I cannot tell you just how happy I am with this sled! if you take a few ...

Toy Construction #154: New Wheel Making Jig #1

10-07-2017 05:04 AM by htl | 13 comments »

My old wheel making jig was way way wore out so when we moved it hit the trash can. :-[ So time to make a new one with thoughts of being more accurate and safer to use.Want it to work with my hands farther from the blade and need to come up with a way to get better holes drilled for the dial indicator [if that the right word] So with that being said I needed to find a guide to drill 36 holes at just the right spacing. I started by using a 36 tooth 7 1/2” saw blade to force the ...

A shop made fixture for making face frames with the JessEm 08350 doweling jig

05-25-2017 10:58 PM by Rich | 4 comments »

NOTE: The small face frame shown here is what I keep near the fixture for reference. It has notes, etc, written on it and is not intended to represent a finished face frame that would be used on a cabinet. I was just going to post a few pictures of the fixture with the JessEm mounted in it, but since it’s not really intuitive how it’s used, I thought a story through pictures would help. This blog entry will basically be photos with captions that briefly describe what’s...
