Shop Upgrades #13: More reorganinzation

02-11-2016 11:53 PM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Band Saw and Lath area coming together nicely. Still have more track wall to install and some overhead shelves. Temporarily moved all the sanders next to biscuit and dowel cutting tools while I brainstorm the sanding/downdraft table I’ll be building this summer. Hand tool workbench cleaning up nice, but think I’ll be moving chisels and planes to under homemade workbench with twin screw tail vice. Chemicals and safety equipment cabinets have stayed in plac...

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1695: Playing "Catch-Up"

02-11-2016 02:00 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 1 comment »

These past few weeks have been quite busy. While I have always been pretty busy and had several things on the go at once, it seems that lately things have taken on a different 'tone' of busy. It is hard to describe. It is just a different 'feel' as to the things that have demanded my time. It is exciting and I will admit a little bit scary at the same time. When I take the time to actually asses things and consider what is going on, I realize that these new demands are just pa...

Building the Spine Desk #4: Now That's Better!

02-09-2016 09:56 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

[Above] After having some special alone time with my band saw, I cut out the new pieces for the brackets. Before removing the tape, I broke out my new friend and sanded the curved edges. [Below] Breaking the tape shows the dadoes I made on the pieces. This time they came out perfect! The pieces fit together pretty tight. [Below] So I glued them together and clamped them. [Below] So now it’s just a matter of drilling, sanding, assembling and a little more cutting.

My Journey As A Scroll Saw Pattern Designer #1694: 12 Days of Christmas - Day 2 Completed!

02-09-2016 02:13 PM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 2 comments »

Winter has finally arrived here in Nova Scotia. For the past two months, I think everyone around us here has held their breath and waited for the inevitable freezing temperatures, wind and snow. But up until yesterday, their dread has been pretty much unfounded. Oh, we have had some snow and ice, but nothing to really complain about. A few inches here and there. A few storms that brushed by us and missed us by a whisker. Nothing that really lasted for more than a couple of days. Whatever...

Side project: Dove tail saw - Rust Removal

02-09-2016 09:32 AM by blue77 | 6 comments »

I was able to take apart my “new” saw with only a little trouble, but I’ll wright more about the handle and brass split nut when I get to them. Now the saw blade is a little rusted… Ok it’s really rusted. To get all that rust off, I’m going to wet sand it. I know that there are products that I could buy to remove rust, but I already have wet dry sand paper. Not to mention that 90% of everything I do is sanding stuff, so why change my mind numbingly dull process now? I start with a good spr...

Building the Spine Desk #3: Two Steps Forward, One Step Back...

02-08-2016 10:20 PM by Dave Rutan | 0 comments »

[Above] Here’s the fix for the bracket size problem. There’s so much glue surface on it that I’m confident it would hold. But… [Below] When I put it on the spine, I discovered that I hadn’t thought far enough ahead in my fix. The side pieces are not long enough to cover the spine segment completely. To be exact, they are 3/4 inches too short=the thickness of a spine segment. :( [Below] So I’ll dig out that scrap piece of very similar plywood ...

Shop stuff #35: Improving the Bosch

02-08-2016 07:45 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I love my Bosch Glide mitre saw. It is a wonderful piece of machinery. If you have been following along though, you will realize that it does have some short comings. One of them is the dust chute. Here I do a simple job, with a reclaimed inner tube from a wheel barrow, to improve it a bit. It is still not perfect, but it is a lot better. I suppose that having the vacuum or a dust collector hooked up would improve it more, but I do not have the power to the shop yet, so we will have to...
