Drill Press Table Version 2014

01-16-2014 09:04 PM by RCHarvey | 6 comments »

Yea, I know. DP Tables are like cutting boards around here. Been There, Done That. So, I don’t see any Drill Press Tables that are perfect for me. So I’ll build one. Using all of the ideas I’ve seen on this site. My first draft The fence design will come later. I like the following ideas:3 slots. (2 for the fence and hold downs, and one down the middle for a miter gauge or equivalent item or just more holddown for small parts.)1 cross slot. (S...

...in Which Tim Sharpens a Card Scraper.

01-10-2014 05:01 AM by Tim Anderson | 15 comments »

So, I’ve seen tons of videos, read more blog posts than I remember, and tried myself many times to follow all the different methods for sharpening a card scraper I’ve found online. After finally getting the hang of it, I wanted to post my simple no-nonsense method so you can all sharpen card scrapers with ease as well. It’s really quite a bit simpler than people have made it out to be. Required items:1. Unsharpened Card Scraper (If you don’t have this, why read t...

Modified my sliding crosscut sled for the band saw

01-05-2014 09:04 PM by CueballRosendaul | 2 comments »

A while back, I posted my sliding crosscut sled, but then I later built another sled that slid over both sides of the blade. The original sled was just to the left of the blade and left a cutoff piece to dance around and connect with the blade a few times. I found the perfect use for the old one sided sled at the band saw. I had to make a new runner, but the old one popped off easy enough. I cut it down to 12” wide and moved the end clamp closer to the left so it would not be off bal...

Shop Stuff #4: Two shop helpers

12-16-2013 02:35 PM by SPalm | 24 comments »

I have been building a lot of cabinets recently. Not my favorite thing to do. Anyway, I came up with a couple of jig thingies to help. First problem was assembling carcasses all by myself. Pocket screws make it fast, strong, and easy to build a carcass. My problem was getting the first three pieces screwed together. So I made a bunch of little blocks by drilling a hole in them with the pocket screw jig. I then slightly rounded a small piece of 3/8 inch dowel and glued it in the hole. When ta...

MAKING KERFED ARCH AND JIG

11-20-2013 07:33 PM by kiefer | 10 comments »

Here are some pic sand description of the process I use to make the arch and mouldings for the fruit stand .In this case I used some hardwood flooring with the finish and the backside grooves removed which brings it down to about 9/16 ”. I set up my sled with simple index pin and two index marks for left and right hand cut on the movable panel on the sled. I use a 7 1/4” 40 tooth blade and the arbor tilted to 10 DEG.The blade is set in height to leave about 3/32”o...

Router Table Re-do #1: The Fence

11-03-2013 12:51 AM by HuckD | 2 comments »

This was supposed to be part #2 but it’s #1. See #2 for the back story on my router table. The first improvement to my router table was the fence. I have a bunch of mdf that’s been in the shop for years so that’s what I used. I know, not the best material for a project like this. But, my fence was a hodgepodge of ideas and I built it with no plans and just guessed at the measurements. IF it doesn’t hold up at least I’ll have a better idea of what I’...

Router Table Re-do #2: What I've been using

11-02-2013 11:31 PM by HuckD | 0 comments »

Dang, I have parts 1 and 2 reversed in the blog. Sorry, but this was my first time trying to use the blog. I’ve been cleaning, reorganizing and rearranging my shop lately. The latest task has been to update my router table. I thought I’d start this blog with what I’ve been using. This was built approximately 9 years ago and has served reasonably well. I had acquired several metal cabinets from a copy machine company and started with one of those. I mounted it ...

ebay pick: vintage tenon cutters

10-18-2013 04:45 AM by emart | 11 comments »

After having to cut all the tenons by hand on my shaving horse i decided I never want to do that again and when i got paid for a quick welding job I picked these up for $65 including shipping. As far as the age and manufacturer of these tools i have no clue all I can tell is they are most likely cast iron. Here are some photos of them after I spent a couple hours cleaning them up and getting all the stubborn screws free again: I’m half tempted to replace the machine screws ...

Some Days You Just Can't Win.

09-18-2013 06:12 PM by RaggedKerf | 2 comments »

While waiting for parts of the Rocket Bookcase to dry, I launched into another project. Turns out SWMBO recently put the kabash on a potential gift of a lathe to me. Now, leaving aside the shock of the aborted tool acquisition, I could understand the logic, and after the events described below, I now agree with it. What exactly can you do (not master turners or guys who can spend all day in the shop—-I’m talking regular Joe’s like me who have maybe an hour or so a day i...
