Drum/Disc Sander #1: Help / Input request - Speeds for Drum & Disc Sander I plan to build.

04-18-2012 09:07 PM by Kevin May | 1 comment »

Jocks, I need your help with determining the Drum diameter for a sander I plan to build. (see earlier post for image). The issue is that I have two options (sizes of steel tubing I have) for the diameter of the drum, either 4-1/2” or 6-5/8”. The design of my Drum/Disc sander has both the drum and the disc mounted on the same shaft. This allows me to drive both with a single 2HP, 1725rpm motor I have. The primary decision I am faced with is which size drum to build. The...

Structural Crack Filling

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

Hand Tool Journey #15: Shop Made Dovetail Layout Compass.. Part 3

05-10-2013 09:52 PM by Airframer | 8 comments »

I’m pretty excited right now. I just finished attaching the legs to the hinge and so far nothing has fallen apart! From what I can tell the hardest part is behind me and now it is just a matter of shaping and fitting the adjuster arc to the legs. I also got the fine tuning nut built up and tapped. I still need to make an adjusting screw for the arc but that won’t take very long. Today at the OB appointment we were told that we will be induced on the 20th so only a week ...

Blanket Chest #1: Sketchup Design #1

02-14-2010 01:29 AM by AaronK | 1 comment »

I’m pretty sure im going to build a blanket chest for my wife for our second anniversary (holds the cotton!). I’m still in the design phase, and got this far with Sketchup. I have not filled in all the joinery, and dont plan to since there’s no need: The carcass will be assembled with loose tenons, so all parts will be milled to dimension and the joinery will follow easily enough. The top will be breadboarded. Most tenons will be doweled more for accent than strength....
