Thought I’d ask if there might be a technical type LJ who may have repair information for an older C type 18 inch scroll saw. I have parts and operator manuals for the type 1 and type 2 saws. Looked on net via Google but maybe no such creature exists LOL! Shop manuals are good for assembly/disassrmbly and little suggestions for us non engineer types. I’ve started tearing this machine apart for cleaning, lubrication and parts replacement as necessary. Learning as I go....

I would have posted this as a forum topic but couldn’t find a category where I thought it would fit. Anyway . . . On one side of the miter of our kitchen countertop, about a 4-inch length of the laminate has lifted from the substrate. I attempted to fix it by putting laminate adhesive on a palette knife and spreading it inside on both laminate and substrate, allowing it to dry, and then pressing it down. That was a couple of months ago and it has lifted again. I don’t want ...
At the end of the last post in this series I was beginning to try to repair a crack, or gap, that was between the upper left tenon shoulder of the bottom rail and the left stile. I had super glued a small sliver of wood into the crack, which worked OK, actually. It doesn’t look awesome, but it looks way better than it did with a large black void there. I figure that once I stain and finish, it won’t be so obvious. It’s only really obvious when you get up close. But th...
It’s been just over 3 months since I first posted this blog to fix the wife’s patio rocker. It was so daunting that I put it out in the yard and busied myself with a couple of new projects, but it kept haunting me. Every time I looked out on the back yard, it just looked back wondering when it’s time would come again. Well, guilt ridden I am reporting that I did get back, just in time for the Fall/Winter season. I had to re-manufacture four replacement pieces with round mortise/tenon j...
The yellow just won’t work with rosewood. As JC suggested the epoxy should be used. I should know better. It must be old age. I have to learn my lesson more than once. The yellow glue didn’t held up to the test at all. After letting the tote to sit and dry for couple days. It snaps off with easy. The glue really never set. It was still soft. I had to start over. I ran hot water over glue spot and scrubbed with a tooth brush until all the visible glue are gone. This time I used epo...
It is a walk down memory lane I just as soon not take, but it is nice to know you can go back if you have to. Last Fall after taking delivery of our new little cute vicious puppies, I made the mistake of leaving my bench in their puppy pen. I made it out of redwood in 2009 and it proved to be a tasty treat for sharp teeth. Yum! Aaaaaaaargh! The main damage was to the end of the armrests and there was some damage to the ends of the backrest. I figured I could sand out the backrest,...
I spotted this Bed Rock 604. Another buyer had his hand on it. I had overheard that he said that he is a user not a collector. 15 minutes later, I found the same 604 sitting on the table along with other tools. Feeling sorry for it, I decided to give it a new home. It was a little pricy for an old tool ($50.00) but it was in decent shape. Looks like it does require some clean up. The tote in particular is in need of repair or replacement, but overall the plane looks like it is ...
There was something fishy when I negotiated the price for Delta Contractor Saw, a 34-410B, on Craiglist. The splitter was missing. But, at $250, it was an affordable step up and a project saw that was in really good starting condition. Encouraged by a video demonstation of kickback, I tackled the safety issue today. I cut a piece 1” x 1/8” steel to rough length. After several hours of angle grinding, filing, and polishing with my spindle sander, I was able to match the thi...
I got a bit more time to work on my tabletop today and it is coming along! I think that the longest part remaining is going to be cutting the butterfly dovetails to keep the cracks from spreading. One edge on the bottom is a mess. It will take some time, but I plan on at least 100 years of service out of a piece of furniture when I build, so it will be worth it. I want to keep away from straight lines in this piece, so I used a curve to draw the edges of the table. The curve is adju...
