Finding a new drive belt for my Delta portable planer Model 22-540

07-09-2011 06:01 PM by bobdurnell | 5 comments »

Recently I was planning some 4/4 walnut and cherry to make a box. I got greedy and was gang feeding the 10 inch wide by 14in long boards thru the planer and the cutter head slowed down but the motor kept up the rpms and then everything stopped except the motor. I melted the drive belt! To make a long story short, I called every Porter Cable Delta place to see if I could get a new drive belt. Absolutly no luck, was told at the last place that the belt was discontinued. Nooo! Fortunately t...

how i save space in my shop #1: my planer jointer

06-29-2011 08:31 AM by emart | 8 comments »

for those wondering how i can possibly put as many machines into my shop as i do the answer is this: its not easy. in order to have my planer in my shop and not a trip hazard i had to put it inside my jointer. it was a nightmare dealing with how i can fit my machine inside the stand of another one. i had to add an angle iron frame to the bottom of my jointer stand and couldnt just put my planer inside it directly as it was a little too tall so i had to angle it in and then put in a plywood...

My First Bastone Walnut Burl!

When I was slabbing it you could definately smell the walnut but it was different from the Claro and English. These have great dark black lines that are marbled. Beautiful white sap wood and hart wood. These are pics of some of the slabs. Cutting Wood Is A Blast!!!

Good Afternoon. I come to you looking for some advice on where to go from here. Let me break down my recent purchase of a Grizzly G0453 15” Planer.June 6th – Called Grizzly sales to get a few questions answered prior to purchasing. Sales associate was very knowledgeable about the product and answered all questions I had. Specifically one of the questions I asked was about how the delivery driver would deliver my planer. I do not have a fork truck or tractor so I was instructed to o...

Wedding Clock #9: Sides

06-17-2011 03:21 AM by kenn | 6 comments »

Now that the front and back have been assembled, I’m on to making the sides and the shelves that will sit in dados cut into the sides. Today’s blog is getting thoses sides made and ready for the dado process. That means basic milling. So I start with rough lumber, layed out for the best match I think. I check the direction the grain is running by planing a bit on each piece. This will allow the grain to be running the same when the whole piece is glued up and, hopefully, make...

Installed a Byrd Shelix Cutterhead in my DeWalt DW735 Planer

06-14-2011 05:26 PM by BlankMan | 27 comments »

(Just thought I’d add the link to the install instructions here at the top.) Bought a Byrd Shelix cutterhead for my DeWalt DW735 planer a few months ago but hadn’t taken the time to install it until a few days ago. I’ve got one thing to say so far, I am impressed. In the shipping packaging, and the ease of installing it, and with it’s cutting performance. The installation instructions were well presented and well thought out, right down to the piece of plastic that ...

Roubo Cabinet #10: Placing the Backpanel

05-26-2011 11:44 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 8 comments »

With the back panel released from pipe-clamp jail and kinda-sorta smoothed with a #4, time to get it ready for fitting to the back of the carcase. What I want to do is get this panel inset into a groove planed (yes, with the #48!) inside said carcase so it floats in place / can expand and contract its little heart out. The panel will be ‘tongued’ on all four sides, so in order to get the ‘un-tongued’ dimensions right I first had to clamp the carcase tight to get a ‘finished’ inside dimension ...

Fixing a design flaw for about 10$

05-26-2011 05:09 PM by Woodwrecker | 13 comments »

Hello everyone. I’ve noticed that a lot of you have a DW735 thickness planer like I do.I use the heck out of mine and it is a great machine. But, there was a design flaw in my opinion that needed to be addressed. The dust port is placed above the middle of the out-feed table, and the dust collector hose has to be tied back or hung up to keep it out of the way, unless you are blessed with a permanent attachment.I hung it or tied it for a long time until I came up with this solution.Wi...

Roubo Cabinet #9: Framed Backpanel

05-25-2011 06:59 PM by Smitty_Cabinetshop | 3 comments »

I have a fully joined carcase with partitions for five drawers, but it’s only got two sides, a top and a bottom. ie: it needs a backside! Options I’ve thought about include a series of half-lap boards nailed into a rabbet at all four edges, and a floating frame and panel. Because one of these is necessarily more difficult to do than the other, you can likely guess which one I’ve chosen… I started work with material selection. For the frame I’ve used a pretty non-descript (re: crappy) piece...
