Dewalt 735 Mods and Repairs #2: Shelix Head Installation

12-26-2014 01:26 AM by pintodeluxe | 8 comments »

I installed the Shelix cutterhead from Holbren in my Dewalt 735. Although Holbren has online instructions, I found Chris Wong’s video, of Flair Woodworks, to be more detailed. The process was surprisingly simple, and went together without a hitch. I won’t recount the entire installation process, because it is well covered elsewhere, however I will add a couple tips if you are considering this upgrade. When you pull the gearbox off to access the cutterhead, use a bungee cor...

Cherry File Cabinet #1: Milling frame and joinery

12-19-2014 10:34 PM by JimYoung | 0 comments »

It’s been a while since my last woodworking project, so I’m easing back into the groove with a new file cabinet. I have a piece of junk tin cabinet in my home office that squeaks every time I open and close it. I did some serving trays in Cherry, and really liked working with it, so my new file cabinet will be Cherry. I found a photo online and liked the style so I sketched it up in Sketchup and AutoCAD. The legs are 1 3/4” x 1 3/4” and the rest of the frame is 1&...

If so, then I may have the solution for you.Unplug the planer and remove the top cover with the supplied hex wrench.-----Remove the dust collector fitting by pressing the spring loaded pin, and twisting the fitting. -----Remove the three red thumbscrews to loosen the dust shroud. -----Carefully lift the infeed side of the dust shroud, and gently p...

Scobie Box #3: Gluing up and starting to add finish

12-09-2014 03:53 AM by icemanhank | 2 comments »

Gluing up was quite an interesting time with so many pieces to go together at once. I did the ends first then dry fitted everything to make sure all of the joints would fit up square prior to adding the glue and clamping (using the offcuts from the legs when clamping) I have added one coat of Danish Oil but need to get the lid on before I can finish the handles and add finish to them.

My Workbench #1: Initial "Finished" Product

11-20-2014 08:25 PM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 9 comments »

I am a woodworker, an engineer, a maker, and a tinkerer. I built myself a workbench that height adjustable and completely solid that will last for generations. The full project description is here. But if your like me, you will find that a project, though completed, is never really done. I started this blog to document my starting point for any modifications and upgrades I do to the bench. See a video of the project by clicking here if you don't have flash or watch below:
