Planer cutterhead bearing replacement #1: HELP! Can anyone give me advice on replacing bearings on my planer cutterhead?

12-09-2015 10:37 PM by lightweightladylefty | 5 comments »

Last week my planer blew a bearing on the cutterhead. It is a NuMark 12” planer, more than 30 years old. The company went out of business many years ago. I cannot determine how to remove the cutterhead. Here’s the issue:1. The cutterhead casting is a single unit. 2. The bearings on either end are smaller than the cutterhead circumference so the cutterhead cannot be pulled out either end. .3. From the parts schematic, the cutterhead appears to be one piece (no smaller diameter inside sh...

Toy building #4: The Concrete Pump basic truck

12-07-2015 03:41 PM by johnstoneb | 6 comments »

About the end of August I decided I had better get started on building something or would have nothing for Christmas. I started the layout and cutting material for the build. I had resawed a bunch of maple for drawers on my toolbox build so had quite a bit of maple about 5/16 thick that I planed down to 1/4” and cut up some walnut. I was just getting ready to start glueup when a friend called and wanted to know if I wanted to run the Main Salmon. That was a no brainer of course I wa...

A quick tour of my shop.

12-06-2015 07:31 PM by CharlieK | 15 comments »

I have been meaning to do a shop tour video for some time, but never quite got around to it. Then I met a young photographer named Michael DeVowe. Michael graciously came over to my house and filmed this for me. I have received “feedback” in the past about too many “um’s and ah’s” in my presentation. After Michael gave me the completed video I went back and did some post editing and cut out most of the um’s and ah’s. Let me know how you ...

Butterfly Dining Table #6: Vacuum Press Veneering and Shop Sawn Veneer

11-30-2015 10:37 PM by Guy Dunlap | 7 comments »

This time I’m starting to make the top for the table. Since it’s going to have a solid wood frame around it, I need to use veneered panels. I show how to make shop sawn veneer and get it ready for veneering. Then I show how I glue it to the substrate, and how to use the vacuum bag to press it to the substrate. I had a lot of fun doing this as it is a new process for me. If you would like to learn more about the vacuum bag veneering process, I recommend going to Andy Pitts’...

A book Shelf Like No Other - A Floating Book with a Hidden Compartment

11-30-2015 05:22 AM by Mike | 3 comments »

I was in need of a little shelf to hold an alarm clock in my guest room. I decided to make one out of an old book. The difference between this and other floating books that are out there is that this one has a hidden compartment built inside! I’ve included the build video if you’re interested in making one yourself. View on YouTube

Plane Sled #1: Planer Sled for Thin Pieces

11-25-2015 05:20 PM by Jim Jakosh | 14 comments »

I have a job where I need some thin stock ( about 1/8”) and my planer does not crank down that low for some reason. I also have some blocks that are about 6 1/2” square that I resawed for this project and they spin around in the planer because they are so short. I have often thought of using a sled to carry them through the saw and now I really need something like that. I planned to put a rail on the back for the cutter to cut against ,but the rollers push the wood through a...

Butterfly Dining Table #5: Split Top Sliding Assembly

11-24-2015 11:27 PM by Guy Dunlap | 3 comments »

After the base assembly is complete, I start working on the sliding mechanism that will carry the split top. I use maple for some of the parts, and walnut for the slides that will be attached to the table top when I complete it. Although not very complex, it is a design that demands precision to work correctly. You Tube Link – https://youtu.be/KXypIMnhh3g As always, I welcome your questions and comments! To get updates of this build as I go along, please follow me on Inst...

Shop stuff #11: 2 videos today

11-11-2015 12:51 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

The weather has been rather nice lately. So nice that I have been spending more time in the shop. Along with being out in the air with Sally and Lil’ Lee. I have had the camera in the shop too. Which of course means I have lots of video clips saved, and nothing published for a while. Well, it rained today, so I took some time to do some editing and catching up. We had to go to town so Lil ‘Lee could get her grooming done, but other than that, I have been sitting in front of ...

Life as an Amateur Woodworker #59: Now for a Good Night's Sleep...I hope!

11-09-2015 01:10 AM by PhilBello | 5 comments »

It has taken two and a half weeks, but I am finally there, and the new bed is completed, since I quoted SWMBO three weeks, I am happy that I came in, in time! The original idea was to varnish the bed so that it was a natural pine colour, but… If that’s natural pine, my names Santa Claus, it reminded me of cheap pine kitchen furniture in my youth…orange! So the search went on, and we decided on an Oak matt varnish. Another change was the top mattress support,...

Butterfly Dining Table #3: Curved Rail Joinery

10-26-2015 09:42 PM by Guy Dunlap | 5 comments »

After I take the rails of the bending forms, I true up one edge and then rip them to size. I layout for the angled cuts on the curved ends, and then cut them with the miter saw. All the joinery for the curved rails are then cut with the Festool Domino. I also go through my clamping strategy for when I’m ready for glue up. As always, I welcome your questions and comments!
