Lessons Learned #1: Appeasing the jointer

03-13-2010 01:58 AM by live4ever | 8 comments »

There’s nothing like the sense of accomplishment when you’re able to successfully troubleshoot a problem. I was having some snipe issues with my Ridgid 6” jointer. The last 2” or so of the trailing end was getting gouged. A common issue with jointers, I hear. So I set out to solve the problem. My careful and scientific analysis of the problem (reading the manual and browsing forums) led me to believe the knives were too high relative to the outfeed table. So ...

Small gloat on a craftsman jointer

03-11-2010 03:53 AM by Chase | 13 comments »

A more experienced woodworking friend is pushing me in deeper and showed me how to go from rough to square lumber using a jointer and planer. So after some trolling on craigslist I found one in a town about an hour and a half away. 75 bucks for a 6in craftsman jointer. The manual that came with it has a copy-wright date of 1965, so it is roughly that old. After some work and guidance with the friend that helped further my addiction i was able to clean the table and fence up ...

Craftsman Jointer

03-10-2010 10:29 PM by stuk4x4 | 8 comments »

I made what I feel to be a great buy on Craigslist today. For $25 I purchased a 6 inch jointer. After geting it home and pulling the Model number off it I was able to find out some specifics and even track a parts listing down. It is in OK shape, so I need to clean it up and mount the motor to it. The jointer itself is mounted to a very sturdy cabinet that is also mounted on casters. having it mounted on casters is a huge plus for me as I have limited space and am always moving stuff aro...

Sharpening #1: Sharpening planer knives

03-09-2010 11:03 PM by Daren Nelson | 15 comments »

It’s hard to shoot these by myself, so 2 different angle (2 different knives) This is the machine. A Foley Belsaw model 355 Basically the motor with a grinding wheel rides the track and the knives are clamped to the rail. I have numerous shims to get them set the right distance. The carriage for the motor/grinding wheel also moves to and away from the knife rail. The head obviously pivots to the proper angle of the original grind bevel of the knife. The wheel in the second video t...

Shaker Night Stand #10: Fill my eyes ... with that double vision!

03-08-2010 02:29 AM by NBeener | 27 comments »

So … among my 3,000 eye problems is intermittent double vision. But … I don’t think that’s the problem, here. I seek the expert counsel of the venerated and revered LumberJocks: IS IT just me …. ?? Tenons are better the second time around!! Incidentally, I occasionally do more than just clean my shop :-) Cheers, All!

Neck Thru V Guitar

03-07-2010 03:12 PM by lugnut | 12 comments »

Well, I bit the bullet and purchased some equipment. I got an 8” jointer/planer combo from Jet and a 9” bandsaw from Skil. Probably none the best stuff, but live and learn. My goal here is to develop my woodworking skills to a higher level concentrating on guitar construction. The task at hand is to plane the wings to the same thickness as the neck. The wings are basswood and I’m thinking I should just get them ‘close’ to leave a little room for sanding. W...

Bookshelves #1: raw materials

03-03-2010 08:29 PM by Vick | 6 comments »

I decided to try my hand with 8/4 stock and save a little money by re-sawing all the stock myself. Looking back at it, I guess it was worth the $100 I saved but it was more of a hassle then I thought it was going to be.

A Poor Man's Router Fence Positioning Jig

02-25-2010 11:13 PM by stefang | 17 comments »

Quite a few years ago I made a fence positioning jig from a design by Nick Engler. It was nice and worked fine, but when I built a new router table I also built a split fence so I would have the option of moving the outfeed side of the fence outwards to fully support the workpiece through the entire cut when jointing. I just occurred to me that I could use the positioning jig together with my split fence as shown below. One full turn of the handle on the positioner and the fence moves 1mm ...

Here is my entry into the “What Else Can You Do With Rockler Cookies” contest. It is just a tad over 1 minute but you know how we “Hollywood Types” are when we get in front of the camera. Thanks for looking- Cecil D. DeMille (AKA—Lew)
