My auto-locking lift mechanism on my outfeed table and wall mounted panel saw

894 days ago by tedth66 | 3 comments »

A handful of people have asked me about building a similar outfeed table like mine and wondered how I supported the table/panel saw. Instead of trying to describe the mechanism, I thought I’d post a short video of my design (in action), that I used on my Outfeed Table and now on my Wall Mounted Panel Saw. Here's my Outfeed Table Here's my Wall Mounted Panel Saw To operate, I simply lift the table/panel to lock it into place and when I want to fold it down, I lift slightly on t...

XPanel #1: The First Open Source Panel Saw Jig

581 days ago by JRAP | 9 comments »

I’m an IT guy, so I’m very familiar with the concept of open source software, and I love the idea. So, here’s my contribution to the relatively new open source “hardware” movement. I’ve always been interested in woodworking to some extent, so was my father, and so was my grandfather, and up until recently it was my grandfather who had the most extensive home shop, and in his day, was probably the most avid woodworker among us (for the record, neither my...

My new Roubo #19: Making the sliding board jack with hand tools only

1272 days ago by JasonD | 10 comments »

I got some time in the shop tonight and was able to get the sliding board jack made and installed. To make the V-groove at the bottom, I first made two cuts down the center with a rip panel saw. Then I cut a 45-deg kerf from the front / back that met those first two cuts in the middle. Finally, I chopped out the middle section and pared it flat with a 1/4” chisel and cleaned up the slopes with a paring chisel. Here’s a picture after the first 45-deg cut: After the sec...

Making a Small Panel Saw #1: The Saw Plate

105 days ago by Mosquito | 24 comments »

I haven’t got a very large workshop, or bench. I enjoy using hand tools, and often make small rip cuts at my bench in the leg vise. I’ve wanted a small panel saw, in the 16-18” range, for a little while now. I made the decision to try making my own, and a couple of weeks ago I ordered a saw plate and hardware from Two Guys In A Garage Toolworks (www.tgiag.com). I ordered the 6-1/2” x 18” x 0.032” thk small panel/half back saw plate. My blank saw plat...

Shop built vertical European style panel saw

886 days ago by Loren | 7 comments »

I’ve been boo-hooing table saws for awhile now as a means of breaking up sheet goods due to the huge amount of floor space an accurate setup requires. Can you do it in a 2 car garage? sure, but you sacrifice a lot of footage and flexibility to the gods of full-sheet capacity. People here ask about making panel saws here and there and I’ve mentioned my Striebig-inspired saw design, really just a giant jig for a circular saw. Let me put my money where my mouth is and show the...

My new Roubo #16: Tools used in the bench build

1282 days ago by JasonD | 3 comments »

Here’s list of the main tools I used in this bench build:- a “scrub” plane (a cheap modern Stanley #5 that I heavily cambered the iron on)- a pair of cheap modern Stanley block planes (LA and regular)- a cheap modern Stanley bullnose rabbet plane- a vintage Stanley #7 Jointer plane that I bought off of eBay- a LV LA Jack plane that I got for Christmas this past year- a cheap Great Neck brand crosscut panel saw- a cheap Putsch brand rip panel saw- a cheap modern Stanley copin...

Machine mods, oddities, and fix-ups #5: Panel saw flip stop system

708 days ago by Loren | 6 comments »

I made a bunch of these flip stops for my panel saw. I used 1/4” x 1/2” aluminum bar stock offcuts I bought on ebay from a surplus dealer for very cheap. The brass 1/4-20 thumb nuts were bought from an ebay seller as well. I bought some t-bolts from Woodline USA (like toilet bolts) but these brass thumb nuts don’t fit them (regular 1/4-20 nuts do), so I used regular 1/4-20 hex head bolts and they work well, though perhaps sliding in the t-track a little less smoothly. ...

My new Roubo #17: Continuing the "accessories"...

1277 days ago by JasonD | 5 comments »

I spent the evening cleaning up and rearranging my shop the night that I got the top flattened and the leg vise installed. For the first time since I moved into this shop, it actually feels and looks like a work shop. Everything is actually in the proper place, as opposed to being thrown randomly some where in the hectic scramble to get our house remodeled so that we could move in last year. After getting everything cleaned up and organized, I started working on some of the remaining acces...

Amazing Tools #11: The Robland Axis Ergo panel saw

1562 days ago by Gary Fixler | 10 comments »

This thing quite literally wouldn’t fit in my garage. Take everything out of my garage right now, and take off a wall of your choosing, and you couldn’t slide this into it and replace the wall. I’m still putting it on my wishlist. Watch it in even higher resolution here.
