Shop stuff #25: Fixing the shipping damage

12-30-2015 10:30 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I decided I had to edit something else besides project video for a change. So I put together a short one of repairing the Bosch Glide Mitre saw that was damaged by UPS in shipping. Jim at Bosch shipped me the part directly instead of having to deal with UPS claim service. I did call UPS and the customer service rep told me he would forward it to the “investigation” department, all the while making it feel like I was the one being under investigation. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #22: A board of Cherry

12-22-2015 06:13 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The start of building a Christmas present. Getting thing roughed out and thinking about sizes. I opt for hand tool work many aspects and use machines for things I don’t want to take a chance on. There are certain places that the machines are still required. I don’t think I will ever get rid of them and go totally hand tool, but I keep experimenting to build my skills. Also, trying to embed the video for the first time, we will see if it works. View on YouTube

A quick tour of my shop.

12-06-2015 07:31 PM by CharlieK | 15 comments »

I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...

Shop stuff #20: My new Bosch Glide Mitre video

12-06-2015 02:45 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

It has been a long day. Along with taking the footage of the video, editing it, uploading and all the rest, I did all the card scraping on all the parts made so far of the essential oil rack I have been working on, did 2 separate glue ups on it (one is drying now), made a new batch of BLO and bees wax, and applied it to the pieces for the back panel of the rack. On top of that I barbiqued some steaks for supper. Yes,....barbique,.... in Canada,.... in December! So without any more rambl...

Shop stuff #19: My new mitre saw

12-05-2015 01:59 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I signed up for email updates at the Bosch Tools website and a few months ago they send me a message to do a survey for them. I answered a few questions and submitted it and thought that was that. Well, low and behold a couple of weeks back I get a message saying I won a Bosch GSM12SD 12” Glide Mitre saw. A form to fill out for tax purposes and they told me it is on the way. Now, I have been a fan of this saw since I first saw it, and only dared to dream that someday I would own t...

Portable Miter Saw Station #1: Building the base on the tool cart

12-03-2015 09:42 PM by BurkeJones | 4 comments »

So I have a small area in my garage for my shop, so my tools really need to be mobile. I have a miter saw that is on a fixed stand and very clunky to move around, as well as really being to low to work on comfortably. I also have a rolling tool cart! So I took off the upper portion of the cart and I am in the process of building a portable miter saw station on top of the tool cart. The next video will be the fold-down wings after I get some other pressing projects taken care of! If...

A book Shelf Like No Other - A Floating Book with a Hidden Compartment

11-30-2015 05:22 AM by Mike | 3 comments »

I was in need of a little shelf to hold an alarm clock in my guest room. I decided to make one out of an old book. The difference between this and other floating books that are out there is that this one has a hidden compartment built inside! I’ve included the build video if you’re interested in making one yourself. View on YouTube

On the Workbench #8: Upgrading my Miter Saw's Dust Collection

11-25-2015 05:02 AM by ontheworkbench | 2 comments »

Lately, I had not been very satisfied with the dust collection on my 12” Porter Cable miter saw, and had found a number of people commenting on how great dust collection is on their Festool Kapex. I cannot afford that saw, so I looked it up and found a parts diagram that included a shoe (in my words), or in their words and “apron”, part #4731316 that is used to control dust on the Kapex. After studying the diagram for a while I decided to ordered it from Festool and give it ...
