Project concepts & ideas #1: Alternative to cyclone dust collector?

07-23-2009 08:43 AM by TheLandYacht | 11 comments »

OK. As I’ve understood it, the point of a cyclone DC is to slow the air movement down to allow the dust to fall into a receptacle before the air to move into the blower. Am I right on this? So, my concept is this. Instead of a hard-to-assemble cyclone setup, just a 5gallon bucket, with a smaller (1 gallon or so?) bucket mounted inside of it…with the below modifications. Lets see if I can describe my concept well enough not to need pics & sketches. So. A 5 gallon buc...

"Art Box" Tutorial #10: Pin Hinges

07-22-2009 03:56 PM by Andy | 17 comments »

Updated 1/16/12 I spent a lot of time developing a way to let the lid swing down into the box, yet still maintaining a fairly tight reveal on all four sidesThe difficulty is the lip itself. It doesnt allow the back of the lid to drop into the box, so thats where we need to cut it away a little deeper at the back. I call these pockets.The other difficulty is in getting the hinge placement spot on or it wont open at all or not far enough to stay open. Here is how its done: Use the same pa...

foot powered Scroll saw #6: Spring my foot

07-18-2009 05:48 PM by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

I bought a package of four springs at Home Depot. You can put a spring at the back or at the front. I tried the different sizes in different places and picked the 4” one near the front. I put it on by gluing short pieces of dowels, one to the base and the other to the bottom arm, and slipping it on. The next thing to do is drill a hole in the end of the bottom arm. I failed to mention that the hole for the blade holder is 1” in from the front end of both arms. Also, I cut ab...

foot powered Scroll saw #5: Table and trundle

07-18-2009 02:12 AM by Tom8021 | 2 comments »

Some scroll work requires you to tilt the table. I accomplish this by allowing the table to pivot on the tower end and created a trundle on the opposite end. The thing to remember is the top of the table is 5” off the base. With the table width at 12” I created a curve so that the radius is 4 1/2” . The trundle is 2” wide 1/2” ply with a 3/4” slot in the middle. The slot can be smaller it just needs to be able to pass the lag bolt through it. The su...

foot powered Scroll saw #4: The Tower

07-17-2009 07:33 PM by Tom8021 | 1 comment »

The tower needs to be beefy. I had some 7/8 ASH laying around so I used it. Everything hinges on the tower so don’t be shy adding a few bolts. The lower part ( 2 1/2×15 1/2) is just bolted to the base with three lag bolts. I drilled the base so the bolt heads sat flush with the bottom. There are dados for the vertical pieces. I wanted to make sure I could minimize any movement and I think this works with the triangle supports. By the way the dimension of 13” on the to...
