Chop Saw Dust Hood #2: Top & Bottom of the Plenum Box Added

1730 days ago by BlankMan | 7 comments »

Now I’ve added the top and bottom to the plenum box in the back of the collection hood. The idea of the plenum box is to equally distribute the vacuum along the whole length of the opening to collect the sawdust. The 4” duct will connect to the top of the box, inside the plenum 2/3 down from the top is a divider board that splits the box into two chambers. The divider board has three holes in it, a 2-1/4” hole in the middle and two 2-3/8” holes one at each end. What I ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #11: Picture Frames

268 days ago by PhilBello | 5 comments »

If there is one thing I dislike doing, it is making picture frames, but when needs must!... Following my six year old Colombian Nephew’s ‘passing out’ from Infants School last week, there were obviously a raft of photos, and unfortunately the next stop, was my door, so I had to do some quick thinking, because I no longer had my framing equipment. It was back to my old friend, YouTube, to get some ideas, and the easiest was a video by George Berry, which showed a simple an...

Chop Saw Dust Hood #4: Plumbing To Connect The Chop Saw's Dust Port

1710 days ago by BlankMan | 4 comments »

Well I got sidetracked restoring the Jet sander but did spend time on this while working on that in between waiting for parts. I cut out the circle for the saw swivel clearance like six times. There was really no good way to measure it and get it right the first time because like I said with the blade guard, handle, and motor, the cutout is closer to half a teardrop then a circle. So I’d put the hood in place, put the saw in place, and see where it bound or was too close and cut it bigg...

First Stage of Design

2403 days ago by Blake | 17 comments »

Ok, so the next piece of shop furniture that needs updating is my radial arm saw table. The original table I built was meant to be a temporary home for the old saw after its restoration about two years ago. I spent some down time at work drawing a few different designs and ideas and then put it in sketchup when I got home. Please… let’s discuss the design before I actually make any cuts! I am totally open to any constructive criticism. Here is what I have come up with so far: Th...

My experience with HF 12" Sliding Miter Saw #1: Setup

715 days ago by EEngineer | 10 comments »

There has been a lot of discussion about the Harbor Freight SCMS saws. I recently purchased the HF Model #98194 miter saw thought I would share my experiences with it. I have desired a sliding compound miter saw for quite a while. But I just couldn’t see spending $500 – $600 for the high end saws. Harbor Freight has lower cost models of sliding miter saws for sale. I looked at the HF models in the store. I could have lived with a 10” model but the 10” model from HF ...

My Garage/Work Shop Makeover #7: New Miter Saw Station

419 days ago by MT_Stringer | 4 comments »

My next part of the garage makeover is to build a miter saw station. I bought the plans from Ron Paulk and studied them over and over and watched his videos on building his work bench. So, I finally used Mikey’s Sketch pad to design my version of the miter saw station. Here is my plan. Sorry there is not a lot of detail in my plan but here is the jist of it. Build two cabinets that will be used for storing power tools and larger jigs and leave room for short cut offs 24 i...
