125 days ago by woodshopmike | 14 comments »

I think this has something to do with the problem… This post jumps right into the process which is wayyyy to lengthy with too many pictures to rewrite. Follow the link to check out the full process. Thanks for readin’ y’all, have a great day!

A Dying Chainsaw's Last Words #1: Carb Rebuild

127 days ago by woodshopmike | 13 comments »

I figured there’s at least a hand full of people that frequent this site that could be helped out by this article. Who hasn’t had a chainsaw at some point that was giving them a fit? If you have an older chainsaw, you’ve probably heard it say this before: “Help, Help! cough, umpfh, vrooooommmmm! cough, sputter, death.” I’ll walk you through the steps of bringing a Stihl 026 chainsaw back to life. Maybe I shouldn’t lead off with this, but m...

Bedrock 603 re-animation #1: Unearthing

845 days ago by thetree | 3 comments »

The other day on craigslist I found an ad for “2 old planes”. The pictures we bad but one of them looked like a smaller bedrock so I contacted the guy and he told me that the one was a bedrock which he had never heard of. “too bad it’s not a Stanley, those are valuable” he informed me. The other was a craftsman. He wanted 15 for both, so I picked them up. The craftsman is a number 6, and I am not sure what I will do with it. The bedrock looked promising at first,...

Dewalt Radial Arm Saw Restoration #1: Breakdown and Saw assessment

942 days ago by john1102 | 3 comments »

I found this saw out-of-state in Minnesota for sale by a cabinet making shop who had upgraded to an upcut saw. This is a 1962 Dewalt Powershop 1400, one of the coveted earlier models, powerful, 110 volts, and many nice features. I had a friend pick it up for me so it didn’t cost me any gas and the price was to good to pass up. At the shop he ran the saw and cut some scrap to test it out, it worked just fine. He traveled 600 miles to my house and we turned it on and it just hummed, n...

Shop #1: The Table Saw Adventure

1052 days ago by topcat | 2 comments »

After a weekend of cleaning up the shop, I decided to start with the rest of the arrangement. The workbench and table saw tune up. The workbench will be another “work in progress” project and, if I’m lucky, will have an overhead drum sander at one end . . . but, that’s another story. The table saw needs a whole lot of attention. It’s not the best model available, but the JTS-10DD has served my basic needs for about 7 years. It has survived an attempted abduction ...

Grizzly 24" drum sander #1: Grizzly G1066 drum sander rebuild

1055 days ago by Fejeran | 8 comments »

So I got a 24” grizzly drum sander recently that was in working condition (sort of) but needed some parts replaced and needed a lot of tinkering! So i thought i would share some pics of the journey. this is not the exact one (i dont know what happened to the pic i took), but to give you idea picture this in much worse shape!I am not the best at remembering to take pics of everything so I will explain what I had to do. The back drum had felt well pieces of felt on it so I cleaned up the...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #5: It's ALIVE.......................

1413 days ago by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) aka. Lucas Crenshaw | 3 comments »

Well, today I did get to come home at lunch and dust out the motor, and let me tell you, it looked 40 years younger when I did. The windings were actually nice and shiny underneath the layers of old sawdust….. With that out of the way, I was able to move on. I pressed the new bearings onto the arbor using a deep socket and rubber mallet to tap them into place. With that out of the way I put things back together in the manner I dis-assembled them. Since, I didn’t make no...

Teardrop Camper Rebuild #4: Canopy is up!

1584 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 9 comments »

I know a lot of this is getting away from woodworking. I started the blog so I’ll try and finish it in a few big chunks as some people are still following it. I managed to finish the electrical conduit frame and put up the canopy. It will rain tomorrow and will be windy so we’ll see how it fairs. I expect it will do fine. It’s pretty sturdy. As you can see the pipes fit together like an erector set. I welded four posts on the front platform that will act as a fenced in ...

Teardrop Camper Rebuild #2: Galley Countertop, shelfbrackets, some trim

1596 days ago by Craftsman on the lake | 5 comments »

A little progress today, I went to Home Depot to buy some formica and particleboard to put it on for a countertop. I found that I could get a premade countertop for about half the price and exactly the right length, six ft. I chose the least expensive color which turns out to be the one I would have chosen from the options anyway. The couter hooks on the back much like a french cleat so that I can slip it out to insert the queen size mattress we’re acquiring.I also made some shelf brack...
