My step father-in-law and my mother in law are going to move to Florida (hey, they older and its the law). He came by this weekend and dropped off some “old tools” that he had in a box in his shed. This last one is a Bailey #7 My only problems are: 1 – My sharpening skills suck. Saving up for a Worksharp station.2 – I have no idea how to “refurbish” hand planes3 – I have no skill with a hand plane. Need to find ...
Just a few photos of it finally put together. I just made a temporary leg for where the router table will go. The cabinet was made of leftovers, 3/4 for the top and bottom, 5/8 for the back, and 7/8 for the verticles. Front Back, showing sawdust chute. and with the door on with the connection for the shop vac. Thanks for looking and all the encouragment
Spent a bit of time today doing some tweaking and setting up. I made a new piece to hold the toggle clamp out of 1/2” ply. The thinner material made the stock bolt the perfect length. The new zero clearance insert is in and I put in my trusty 50 tooth Freud thin kerf blade. A couple of hours setting everything up and it works!!! A bit of cleaning and waxing was involved today. I ripped a short section af ash and the cut looks really nice. First project….the cabinet for un...
I got a toggle clamp from our freinds at Lee Valley. It has a 700 lb. rating. I had to attach it to the fence. It was bigger than I had thought so a small piece from the ash pile, copy the holes from the original piece of aluminum and counter sink them really far so the bolts will reach. Get the hole spacing for the clamp, drill and counter bore for some T nuts on the back. A test fit onto the fence itself. OK, I need a longer bolt to put the pressure on the square tub...
Well, I might have been beaten. I plugged the saw in today, after all this work, and nothing. The capacitor starting system has problems. So, unless I can get it fixed or replaced somehow (bringing it into an electric motor repair place that specializes in this), the saw is dead. Too many proprietary parts to be able to cobble something up. Stand by, we are having technical difficulties. We are hoping it can be overcome somehow. Jim
I had already taken some pictures of some of the tools that I discovered when removing the top layer of the collapsed shed. To preface this, the door to this shed was to open inward but it wouldn’t budge before it collapsed because a ceiling beam had fallen and wedged itself against the door making it impossible to open. I couldn’t get to the hinges and I was always fearful of kicking it in because I had no clue of how it might fall if I did get the door to budge. Through some cra...
Hello, I am Tim from PA. I would not call myself an experienced woodworker by any means. I hope that my participation here is not taken in any negative way with regards to your craft. Due to this past winter’s snow storms, I have been presented a situation and I really don’t know where to turn. Through some searches, I arrived at this forum in hopes of receiving advice. On the property that I have been on for not even a year yet, there are several work sheds (or barns as we ...
Well, Good weather, good time to get finished up on some more. I mated the extension table to the saw top today. I used 3/8×4” lag screws on the mating edge itself. Added 3” deck screws through the angle iron and into the top. Very nice and flat with a good seam. OK, time to get the fence mocked up. I took the T part of the fence and threaded in some nylon set screws, these can be used to square the fence and make sure it is perpendicular also. I can see me ne...
Went to the Re-Store to get a piece of counter top material for the saw extension. They had a “could not refuse” deal on brand new, flat pack, maple kitchen cabinets. So the kitchen got a face lift..lol, and I got the old counter top.I cut 2 pieces to size along with a piece of plywood (20 X 31) and lined them up and drilled some locating holes. Laminated the whole works together. Of course, I forgot to mark how it all went together and had to scrape all the glue off and do it...
My Rockler bench cookies came today and I can’t wait to try them out !
