building a bench and stuff #3: Building the end vise for ma bench

05-19-2015 04:33 AM by TheFridge | 6 comments »

I needed an end vise for ma bench. So I built one. White oak was the hardest wood I had on hand in a useable quantity. I’ll try to keep it short. Didn’t have a large enough piece for the chop(?) but I had 2 that I really liked. So I joined them with a sliding dovetail. Made with table saw, chisel and a home made router plane (the block of oak with the Allen wrench sticking out). I cut rabbets into the bottom guide rails simply because I bought a new to me plow plane. It ...

building a bench and stuff #2: Stretchers and how I assembled

05-19-2015 01:33 AM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

I left off with some cypress jointed and planed for the stretchers with a loose idea of what I wanted to do. I was originally hoping to do a “loopy” sort of deal (like the loopy infill), but I’d need to invest in a router guide bushing set and make or buy some templates and bits. In the end, I just did this Which translates to this. After milling the stretchers and the dados in the legs, I went ahead and glued the legs in first. Then the stretchers. Then a little purpleheart...

Chevalet de Marqueterie #2: Small Beginnings

05-17-2015 08:50 AM by TobiasZA | 6 comments »

As my “Honey-Do” and client projects wind down a little before it really gets cold here in Swellendam, I have at last made a start on my build. A few weeks of regular scrounging at my local tip has yielded some good lumber and adding this to my off cut stack, I think that I have enough lumber to do the job. Buying the hardware kit and plans from ASFM at $500.00 means I would have been into about ZAR6,500.00 before I even made a start. So…..enter “Shipwright” w...

Shopsmith #4: My 1958 Shopsmith Mark V

05-09-2015 04:13 PM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 8 comments »

I’m a little late catching up with my blog but as of May 6th the headstock is back on my Shopsmith and operating like a well-oiled machine. Pun intended…especially since it was in dire need of lubrication. Below is an updated photo of my “new” Shopsmith. Last night I finished removing all of the rust off of the bandsaw table and hopefully this weekend I will get it mounted back onto the bandsaw. I had to call in a little machine work from my dad since one of the up...

Shopsmith #3: My 1958 Shopsmith Mark V

05-06-2015 02:25 PM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 2 comments »

Monday May 4th I took my 1958 Shopsmith 3/4 horsepower motor down to the electrical motor shop and found out that I had a bad capacitor. However, after replacing the capacitor the motor still wouldn’t run and the guy at the repair shop recommended replacing the start-up relay. Being the mechanic that I am and having rebuilt starters before I figured there shouldn’t be too much of a difference between the contacts in this relay and the ones for the starter solenoid, except the si...

Jointer #1: Looking for Grizzly 8" jointer fence

05-01-2015 02:42 PM by WoodCzech | 7 comments »

This may or may not be the forum for this, however, thought I’d ask:I have an OLD Grizzy 8” Jointer (the Green Monster!) – works great, was moving it the other day & it tipped over & broke the fence on it. Does anyone know where I could find a good used fence? Thought about welding it, however, just concerned about keeping it straight & smooth as not to interfere with the piece being cut. Any suggestions?

Shopsmith #1: My 1958 Shopsmith Mark V

05-01-2015 12:56 AM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 9 comments »

Apr-12-2015: After building my military shadow box with a friend of mine and using his Shopsmith for a few parts of the project, I decided that I wanted one for myself so I picked up a 1958 Shopsmith Mark V and am in the middle of restoring it. The motor when I got it would barely turn and now it runs like a champ (amazing what blowing out 57 years of sawdust can do!). I replaced the original v-belt and three of the four bearings; as soon as the gilmer belt arrives I can start putting the hea...

Estate Sale Finds #3: - Delta Milwaukee 6" Jointer

04-24-2015 10:11 PM by Jeff | 9 comments »

Super excited about the deal I got today! So what did I find this morning as I went to a few Estate sales? An awesome 6” Delta Rockwell Jointer with a 3/4 hp motor. I have been wanting a jointer, but did not have the funds to go out and buy something new. I didn’t want a desktop jointer, reviews seems mixed, and I do not have room for a larger floor model. This is the perfect size for what I am doing right now. I know it does not look that great, but I really like these old ...
