Building a lathe

07-22-2017 12:44 PM by Jackdaw | 2 comments »

Hello, here’s my lathe build, as it is so far. I think I like building tools as much or more than building things with the tools, except building tools to build tools with! So this is almost all junk material. The plywood for the head and tail stock and the ways is reclaimed from forms at work. The 2x also from discards from work. The headstock bearing is a bicycle bottom bracket. The headstock pulley is a cast iron pulley from the dump. It had a round hole which I filed square tape...

Ridgid toolboxes... and fixing the sadness #2: Tetris

07-20-2017 01:30 AM by Tony Ennis | 0 comments »

Not much to report this time. I’m trying to figure out a layout for the top 2 trays. The tray including pliers and chisels is pretty easy. This is because all pliers are about the same size, and so are the chisels I’ll be including in the box. So you can see that a few vertical dividers and we’re completely serviceable. This tray would be about 2” tall though if I spread the pliers out, or removed a pair, it could be 1.5”. So indeed it has become a gam...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Making a 3/4" bushing for my router....Way outside the box!

05-31-2017 03:35 AM by woodshaver Tony C | 27 comments »

I’ve been waiting and waiting for a guide bushing set that has a bushing to fit a 3/4” bit through it. It’s been 14 days now and it still hasn’t showed up yet. The other day I was straining my brain a bit while watching TV .. well the TV was on but I wasn’t paying much attention to it. Because I was thinking about how I could make a bushing for my router to fit a 3/4” bit. I came up with this idea. I only took a few photos of what I did so you’ll have...
