Workbench Build #16: New Crank Handles...

02-27-2013 12:50 AM by Airframer | 3 comments »

After finishing up one of the hand cranks for the Moxon vise I realized that the poor excuse of a turning I did on my leg vise crank handle just wasn’t going to cut it. So after that revelation I scrounged up some scraps of Padauk and Oak and started piecing together a segmented stackup that would become my new crank handles for both the leg and wagon vises. Once the glue was set on those I cut different sized plugs out with my hole saw set which works out nicely b...

Game Calls #1: Turkey Friction Call

02-26-2013 12:42 PM by ghost5 | 8 comments »

Well, thanks to the comments and questions I have gotten I dug through my pics to find one I had on how to make a pot call. So for the folks that want a quick tutorial here we go. A pot call is basically a shallow dish containing two ledges inside. One is cut into the rim to hold the playing surface while the second is a ring left in the center raised to clear the bottom of the pot and still leave a space between the sound board that rests on it and the playing surface above it. One thi...

Workbench Build #15: Moxon 3.. Almost done.. I think..

02-25-2013 02:47 AM by Airframer | 8 comments »

So, have you ever wondered how to plane a large piece of wood for a work bench without a workbench? Yep, me too lol. This was another day full of learning. Lesson one was that the blade I had on my band saw was too wide to cut the hard wood and that was why I was having so much trouble with drift. Number two was that my Bucks Brothers 6 1/2” block plane is actually a decent little worker now that I have tuned it up. Lastly… it is hard as hell trying to face plane 36 X 5 3/4 ...

Workbench Build #14: Moxon 2... Adventures in wooden Handwheels

02-24-2013 12:31 AM by Airframer | 8 comments »

The last update was pretty brief and short of details so I hope to make up for it with this one. I just finished up 1 of 2 wooden handwheels for my Moxon vise. I decided to go with wooden ones instead of cast iron for 1 simple reason…. they would be free lol. Well sorta I did already pay for the wood but it is mostly made from scraps and a chunk of the padauk I bought to add contrast to the bench with. I cut the main wheel out on the band saw and used a hole saw set to cut out t...

Workbench Build #13: Moxon In Work... The vise to help build the bench.

02-22-2013 01:52 PM by Airframer | 0 comments »

Just a quick update before I leave for work. I was trying to clean up one of the legs last night with a hand plane and realized this is not an easy task without a vise of some sort. That prompted me to start building the Moxon vise that is in the plans for the bench first. I can then use it to help build the rest of the bench. I’ll get more detailed into the process once it’s finished but here is some teaser shots for you guys. Stay tuned more to come!

Workbench Build #12: First real issue.. Suggestions needed

02-21-2013 02:37 AM by Airframer | 11 comments »

I finally got fed up with tripping over things and wading through a sea of saw dust last night. That was all it took to finally clean up the mess made by the ripping process and reset to start on the base. After sweeping up and re-stacking Still need to clean off the wall benches though! As I was re-stacking the lumber I noticed some issues with the 4X6 fir posts I had bought for the legs. I went with those because A) They were inexpensive and easily acquired at Home De...

Make a Folding Out Feed Table for your Table Saw

02-20-2013 05:22 PM by WoodJediNTraining | 16 comments »

This Week I show you how to make a folding out feed table for your table saw. This design was based after an article and plan found in a 2009 issue of Woodworker’s Journal Magazine. Originally the plan was designed for a Cabinet saw with a Biesemeyer Fence System, so I had to make some slight modifications for my Porter Cable Saw. In this 3 part video series I show you a step by step on building this project as well as talk about the modifications I had to make. The Article and plans ca...

Workbench Build #11: Wagon Vise Hardware..Mostly Done..

02-19-2013 01:51 AM by Airframer | 4 comments »

Spent the day piecing together and cutting iron for the wagon vise hardware and skid. As I had mentioned in the previous post this is what I am getting my inspiration from… I am using the same hand wheel as on the leg vise just a smaller diameter. I have also added a tapered copper fitting to the end of the screw that fits into a bearing that will be pressed into the wood under the table to add both stability to the screw and a bit more of a smooth crank. I wasn’t able...

Workbench Build #10: Finished cutting the top and started planning out the wagon vise..

02-17-2013 11:25 PM by Airframer | 6 comments »

FINALLY! Finished rough dimensioning of the wood for the top. In the process have become good friends with my Skill Saw.. even though it is only the cheap 12A model it is a beast and a work horse lol. I have also decided to cheat and count it as a “had tool” since I hold it in my hand and push it with my hand lol.. so this is still mostly hand tool built so far! Rough dimensions of the top are 2 5/8” X 23 1/2” x 75” and that will reduce down a bit after I s...
