Getting my tools ready #18: Adding dust collection to my jointer and my planer

01-16-2015 03:27 AM by DocSavage45 | 18 comments »

Been awhile and making some progress! Thought I’d do an update on my depreciated shop equipment LOL! Murphy continues to haunt my shop but it appears he went South for a winter vacation! I want to thank Stumpy Nubbs for inspiration while shopping at his and my favorite box store. Stumpy finds innovative adaptive uses for items we might not associate with woodworking. I’ve done some roofing and plumbing and stumpy has some innovative uses for trivets and plumbing stuff such...

Machine restoration #3: More cleaning... And a "dry assembly"

01-08-2015 02:30 PM by CreekOne | 0 comments »

So, after a day of cleaning and a night of sleep I just have to say, Shame on you who don’t clean your tools regularly! I tend to clean my hand tools every quite often, Nomi, Nokogiri and Ganna every time I have used them. Sharpening I do all the time as I do work a lot of Western Red Cedar. Try cutting perfect dovetails with a less than 10000 grit sharpened Nomi. So this is about my new old machine and how the renovation goes on… So why am I ranting about this?Well remember...

Tuning up my new old unisaw #1: Routing cast iron

12-01-2014 06:26 AM by TheFridge | 9 comments »

So I traded a .270 weatherby and 300$ for an old rockwell unisaw that was just refurbished by its previous owner. I got it dialed in when I discovered the top was warped when I went to cut some tenons to test it out. Needless to say, this was a big problem. A machine shop wanted 400$ to surface grind .010 off, but even then the heat could still warp it. There were also no shop with a Blanchard grinder from laffayette to houma to New Orleans with the capacity to do it, that were willing...

The Bar #1: The Bar to man cave

11-29-2014 09:58 AM by Nighthawk | 2 comments »

11 months ago it was decided we would have new years on our new deck that was only built a month before. So we decided on the spur of the moment to build a bar From there the bar seems to have taken on a life of its own. It no longer an out door bar, it is fully enclosed and water proofed... which in it self was a challenge once was water proofed we got power added so the bar fridge and TV, lights and accessories. The french doors we made at my work and got them installed once they went up...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #6: Building the Outrigger

11-29-2014 12:15 AM by Todd Swartwood | 6 comments »

I started with a scrap of 1/2 MDF big enough to get both sides of the outrigger. I believe the measurements were 48” long, 16” high at the end next to the saw, and 12” high at the outer end. This picture shows how I laid it out: I began by ripping down a Douglas fir 2×12 into strips about 2 3/8” wide. I used this for my framing around the edges.I left the small end open and laid the 40 X 80 mm extrusion in the center parallel to the side that was...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #5: Adding the table to the BT's

11-26-2014 01:01 AM by Todd Swartwood | 4 comments »

The next step was the Oak table it is 2” thick X 13” wide and around 80” long. I started by selecting some oak that would easily rip into 2 3/8” strips. I think I had about 15 strips. I laminated the strips together and let it set overnight.I then planned the Piece down to 2” thick, jointed 1 edge and ripped the piece down to 13” and cleaned that edge up on the jointer.I then attached the table to the bridge on the BT with 8 1 1/2” screws from under t...

Shop built Sliding table for Tablesaw #4: Sliding table almost finished

11-25-2014 01:01 PM by Todd Swartwood | 6 comments »

I made quite a bit of progress yesterday, thought I would show some of those pictures and than go back to the build process. After getting to this point I had to make a test cut, I was not disappointed. I used a 4 X 4 sheet of 1/4” mdfthe cut was so perfect no adjustment is necessary. I will get back to the build a little latter today. I must say I am like a guy in a tool store with excitement. All I have left to build is the outrigger, and will work on that t...
