When I moved into a shared shop, I sold my 6” jointer (no love loss) because the shared shop had an 8”. Now that I am back in my own shop, I needed a new jointer. I REALLY wanted something larger than an 8”. I really, really hate ripping down a nice piece of wood just so I can make it flat (yes, I can do it by hand, and have many times). I love the idea of an old industrial jointer, but I didn’t want to screw around with 3ph power, or rebuilding a machine. I...
Started assembling the replacement cart for the jointer today. It went pretty well. I tried the technique of making a shallow saw kerf and then slicing it off to make a rabbet. This was the first time I’d tried that technique and it worked BEAUTIFULLY! I was super happy. Ive watched videos of people doing this and they always used 1/8” spacer bars to offset the piece. I just lined op the piece with the INSIDE of the blade, then used a cutoff as a spacer and made the kerf. Perfect....

Well, I finally had a chance to start tackling the jointer cleanup. luckily the in/out-feed tables were fairly clean and had only light rust. I took two passes with rust cleaner on both and then a light sand with WD-40 as “lubricant”. They cleaned right up and look good. The cutter head is a different story. It’s more rusted and harder to clean. I did the best I could with a wire brush and a green scrub pad. I’ll know later if I helped any in getting the old blades ou...
It’s been a while. I finally got around to spending a day editing. So here is part one of a simple build that turned out not to be so simple. Actually, the editing and putting together of the video was not that simple either….lol. View on YouTube
New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #1: rust removal on cast iron top & refurbish action multiple videos
Video links below… Recently I purchased an older 20” bandsaw. I need a larger bandsaw that can handle anything I throw at it.. I think I found that in a mid 70’s Rockwell 20” wood cutting bandsaw. It probably came out of a school wood shop. The motor is 2hp, it has two speeds which can be adjusted with the belt, it has already been upgraded with carter guides, this big boy saw weighs over 600 lbs. I made several videos regarding this saw which i’ll post below. ...
I made this machine based on plans from printingplans.com, anyway if you note some differences with the plans, it is because after a time working on it, I have made some changes in the dimensions of the parts and some reinforcements to improve the printings on other materials such as wood, for example. This is a really versatile machine to make a lot of screen printing projects with great results, it can works with different materials as papers, fabrics, leather, wood and other porous mate...
