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...

My First Real Attempt at a project. A shaker end Table #3: The legs are milled to rough sizes

12-08-2010 04:02 AM by therookie | 2 comments »

Well after about 20 minutes of looking at the 6/4 cherry board for my legs on the two tables. I figured out how to mill the board into 11 legs. Some of the legs had knots in them and enden up breaking. But I still ended up with 9 good legs out of a board with two knots in them and a 2 foot section of rot in the middle. Again the board was 1 3/16” x 5 1/2” x 122 1/2” and I ended up with (9) 3 foot legs. So all in all not a bad day of after school work. Tomorrow I will be mill...

An Old Barn #2: Pics of tools found

04-18-2010 06:35 AM by slickytfox | 16 comments »

I had already taken some pictures of some of the tools that I discovered when removing the top layer of the collapsed shed. To preface this, the door to this shed was to open inward but it wouldn’t budge before it collapsed because a ceiling beam had fallen and wedged itself against the door making it impossible to open. I couldn’t get to the hinges and I was always fearful of kicking it in because I had no clue of how it might fall if I did get the door to budge. Through some cra...

Cummins Mack Bandsaw Cleaning and Tune Up #3: Making new upper and lower guide block assemblies.

06-18-2012 12:48 AM by nobuckle | 5 comments »

Hello everyone, It’s been a long time since I posted anything on this blog series. I’ve recently made some tremendous progress on the restoration of my bandsaw. A while back I made a blog entry in which I enquired about locating some upper and lower guide block assemblies for my 14” Cummins-Mack bandsaw. I was not very successful in locating some. So, I made some new upper and lower guide block assemblies out of some ultra high weight molecular polyethylene (UHWMP). ...

Murphy Bed Side Cabinets #9: Drawer Fronts and Drawers Completed

07-16-2009 11:13 PM by Gene47 | 1 comment »

Well I am making some progress abeit that it is slow. I was in limbo wondering what I was going to do for the false drawer front material. I am trying to keep my cost down and really didn’t want to purchase mahogany to make the fronts out of. I was browsing around one of the hardwood stores that I purchaase from over in Memphis and got to talking to one of the sales reps and told him what I was trying to do and he put me on a species of wood that I had never used before and said that...

My new Roubo #6: Beefing up the legs

01-05-2011 06:28 AM by JasonD | 1 comment »

Originally, my legs were going to be 3-3/4” x 4-3/4”. After I got my top glued up, I decided that I wanted a little more beef in the legs. I had enough lumber left over that was already acclimated to my shop. I spent a little time yesterday dressing up the legs and put in a bit of time tonight getting the new pieces planed true and ready to add to the leg laminations. Because of my limited number of clamps, I was only able to get 3 of them glued up so far. Taking a break to wat...
