Jointer Tables

06-02-2012 10:42 PM by flatboarder | 3 comments »

Hello Peoples, I have a question about my Jointer tables. It’s a G.I. 225hc m1 . After I s4s a 2 1/2’ square post thats 35” long I went back to fix one that wasnt square to the adjacent side. When doing so I noticed that the jointer was tapering the board from back to front?. In other words it was getting thinner at the end of the cut. My technique is good so its not that . Is it because the outfeed table is higher at the far end or is it because its lower at the far end. ...

My Workshop #2: Workshop Progress - The War Zone

05-21-2012 02:55 PM by steliart | 7 comments »

After the first 20 days my workshop looks like a war zone. Some progress has been made but is a slow process and not all things/tools are here yet. First thing we did was to build a 2X3m WC at the south/west corner of the shop, that was a must since we are a bit far from home. Also the tiles for the kitchen have been installed. Next it was the electrical 240V wiring, and since the electricians asked for a huge amount to do the job, I had to do it my self and it cost me 1/...

Jointer cutter head lock mod #1: Modify cutter head so it can be locked when adjusting knives

05-21-2012 04:53 AM by ic3ss | 2 comments »

Well I’ve had this old jointer for a little over a year now and have had to pull the knives for sharpening a couple of times already because of damaged edges. I have to be more careful I guess. I’ve read all about how to adjust the knives, it’s really pretty simple concept but it’s not that easy sometimes to get the damn things even from one end to the other, and all three knives the same. The main problems I’ve identified are these: Moving a dial indicator ar...

Kitchen Cabinets #1: Lower shells complete.

05-17-2012 04:06 PM by Philip "Pip" Storm | 3 comments »

As part of our kitchen remodel I’m taking on building the cabinets. We are modeling these off of a set at a local big box store. Here’s some pics just after I attached the face frames. They are ready for a finish and then install. Sorry about the picture quality. I was using my ipod. Should have better pics as I get them over to the house. I’ve yet to build a 18” cabinet because it will be my “wild card” cabinet. A section of these cabin...

Roubo Hybrid Bench from start to finish #2: What I got from what I had

05-16-2012 01:43 PM by Jamie Speirs | 5 comments »

Well the thing I love about wood especially an orphan piece like this one Is that it can only get better, I hope :) It looks huge and if it were not for the flaws It would make a big bench Ok, it aint going to be a 6’ bench If I could only use the full piece I like the idea of one side being rustic The rot on the right hand corner means that I’m going to have to get a much narrower tha the 18” that I hoped for Well I did not s...

First Blog - New Desk for a College Student

05-16-2012 04:53 AM by MT_Stringer | 1 comment »

This is my first blog, so be gentle. My nephew is graduating high school in a few weeks and I got inspired to make him a present instead of giving money or buying something cheesy. :-) My inspiration came from a desk I used while staying overnight at a hotel. Below is a pic of the table with my laptop sitting on it. It is approx 22×36 inches with straight legs that have the corners chamfered at 45 deg. After taking a closer look, I thought to myself…I can make that.Here i...

Start of a couple projects #1: What I found on my new jointer!

05-10-2012 01:24 AM by Michael | 6 comments »

Yesterday I started working on two projects: The back piece for my tv mount and an end table. I finally got to use my new jointer. I started with some nice rough walnut. After a couple passes over my jointer I ended up with this. Then I discovered this: Fence Infeed side Fence Outfeed side Fence Outfeed side I sent an email with the pictures to Grizzly and they are sending a new fence to me. Hoping for a nice flat one this time. More to come.
