Acquiring new tools #4: Not new, but a 12" Kity Jointer

06-11-2008 01:56 AM by Kevin | 7 comments »

This is the one I asked about a week or so ago. Finally got some pictures of it last night. 12” blades, over 5’ long table. This thing runs great and pretty quiet. It is very heavy and appears to be well made. Normally this model would have a 12” planer underneath the jointer (like a Laguna) but this was ordered with out the planer. Most of the parts are there to get the planer working. The only thing missing that I can see is the chain/belt system that powers the rollers...

Front Porch Rockers #4: Completion

05-30-2008 05:09 PM by bhack | 12 comments »

This has been a very satisfying project. First I can do the work, and second I learned a lot new things. Cutting out the arc for the rockers was a new process for me. But, I found that I can do it. I didn’t do them perfect, but they will be the next time because I now have the confidence to do it. Doing new things on each of the power and hand tools now boosts my confidence to try something new and more difficult. So, if you are new to the hobby you can do bigger and better things if yo...

NO 7 JOINTER PLANE

05-16-2008 11:30 PM by POPLARFOREST | 10 comments »

I AM LOOKING TO TALK TO ANYONE THAT KNOWS THERE WAY AROUND A NUMBER 7 PLANE. I AM HAVING PROBLEMS GETTING IT TO WORK PROPERLY. I BOUGHT IT OF OFF EBAY A FEW YEARS AGO AND AM ABOUT TO JUNK IT IF I CAN’T FIGURE IT OUT. THE PROBLEM I AM HAVING IS THAT THE THROUT CLOGGS UP AFTER JUST ONE PASS. I HAVE PUT A NEW HOCK BLADE ON IT AND IT IS THICKER AND I THINK THAT MAYBE SOME OF THE PROBLEM. I HAVE TRIED TO ADJUST THE FROG TO OPEN UP THE THROUT BUT IT DOESN’T SEEM TO ADJUST ANYMORE. ...

Front Porch Rockers - Introduction

05-15-2008 04:23 PM by bhack | 6 comments »

I thought that I would write this blog as encouragement for those of us who are not MASTERS of the craft. I started woodworking in the winter of 2003. My only background in the craft was watching New Yankee Workshop since its inception and dreaming of being able to DO THAT SOMEDAY. Well the SOMEDAY finally came when I was offered a very nice retirement package form Verizon Telephone for whom I had toiled for Thirty-three (33) years in Southern California. We, my darling wife of 37 years...

Give her a Jointer for mothers day!

05-11-2008 12:39 AM by SM | 9 comments »

It appears that my ship load of fortune cookies has come in.Honest, I had not mentioned my desires and had even forgotten about mothers day. I have tried to read as many posts I could find in this forum, and others, on jointers. I believe the consensus was, go with an 8 inch cut if possible. If I go for an 8 I have to go to different companies due to cost differences. I have narrowed it down to two company models for a 6”: General 80-150i Mi 6 ”, 1 hp, has a 7 1/4 by 55 ...

Work Bench "blogject"

05-01-2008 01:01 AM by Daren Nelson | 21 comments »

I have not really been woodworking all that long. I have actually owned a sawmill longer than I have been making any finished wood projects, long story. I have debated making a proper bench for some time. My old/first bench was a row of kitchen cabinets I took out on a remodel I did as a contractor with a solid plank on top. Everyone has different needs, I tried to design mine to fit the work I do. If I need to I can easily make modifications, as is I am calling it “done for now”....

My first REAL cabinetmaking project. #1: The Question, The Plan, and The First Problem.

04-17-2008 10:52 PM by TroutGuy | 7 comments »

My first real cabinetmaking project started as a simple “Can you make a new frame for the medicine cabinet mirror, dear?”, from my wife. “No problem!”, I replied. The time I have spent here at LJ has convinced me that I not only CAN do it, but that I SHOULD do it! In fact, I SHOULD make a whole new medicine cabinet – a bigger, better medicine cabinet! [Insert Tim Taylor ‘grunt’ here.] I took some measurements, did a little cypherin’, spent a few hours in TurboCAD and voila, I had ‘The P...

Planers can't flatten boards....really?

04-10-2008 06:18 PM by pashley | 13 comments »

The common wisdom to flatten raw stock, is to first plane a face flat on a jointer. To get to opposite face paralleled and flat, you run that newly flattened side face down in a planer to your desired thickness. Sounds familiar, I’m sure. Hard to do that with 8” stock when you have a 6” jointer though. The common wisdom also states that if you just try to run that raw stock through a planer, flipping it each time until you get it flat on both sides, you’ll end up wi...

The Flip Side of Woodworking...

04-07-2008 09:25 PM by jcees | 14 comments »

Okay, here’s one of the most useful jigs that I’ve ever made. And if I lost i tomorrow, I could build another in about fifteen minutes. I’m not going to include any dimensions as you should make one to fit your own situation. I made this up obviously with scraps. If I made it out of anything else, it wouldn’t work any better. When I build things there’s always some small parts in need of a little fitting. Viola! I frequently use this #7 r...
