Tales of a Hack #2: Brand loyalty: The cocaine of woodworking

12-10-2014 06:57 AM by ajw1978 | 6 comments »

As I write this, I’m staring at three sets of drill/driver combination kits and my eyes hurt from scouring the web searching for reviews, pros and cons for each set. I’m torn between fleeting brand loyalty, the thought of what “might be” for me in the hobby, and the stark realization of who I am, what I do and how infrequently I do it. So, bring a writer by trade and unable to adequately convey to the CEO just how important this decision is and how difficult it will...

Tools #4: Table saw outfeed table

03-18-2014 07:42 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...

My new birthday toy.

12-27-2013 03:31 AM by twItCHer731 | 3 comments »

6 Inch ridgid jointer (jp06101) $100 dollars from a guy at work who didnt want it to see and rust away after only using it a handful of times, the pictures are after about 10 min of scrubbing with a scotchbrite pad and some wd-40, its even cleaner now after more scrubbing, this will reside down at my moms shop, she will get more use out of it more often than I will for a while, and the one who provided the birthday money that i wisely invested. Still trying to get my garage cleaned o...

Overhead Dust Collection on a Modified Ridgid 3650 #5: Ceiling Mount Completed. Blade Shroud Almost.

04-21-2013 08:08 PM by djg | 0 comments »

The ceiling mount is now completed with the exception of some tightening knobs. I screwed a few pieces of 2×4 across the ceiling joists since there was nothing above the directly above the table saw to attach the mount. I painted it white so it would blend in a little better with the shop. You can see that the mount is offset to the left of the blade but there is a horizontal L-Bracket that can be used to shift the shroud left or right over the blade. I had to use a couple of guide ...

How on Earth?

02-10-2012 10:12 PM by GodofBiscuits | 1 comment »

Working on a clock today, I was happily sanding away making the side of the base perfectly smooth and 90 to the top surface when a thought popped into my mind. I thought to myself, how on earth did I do this before my amazing oscillating spindle sander came into my life, and then it hit me! How many other tools have I bought over the years and completely taken for granted without a thought to the ease and time savings it’s brought to my life? Before, I would have used numerous shop made...

Tools #2: Ridgid JP0610 Jointer

01-29-2012 03:32 AM by AmandasHusband | 6 comments »

I hit the wall yesterday. The “this damn benchtop jointer just ain’t cutting it” wall. I’m sure you know that wall. If not, it’s just like the “this shopvac just ain’t cutting it” wall. Or the “this jigsaw just ain’t cutting it” wall. Anyway, while playing around with some twisted up five foot 2×4’s I picked up at the CUL last week while in Home Depot, I realized that I was in serious need of an upgrade ...

Tool Mods #2: Ridgid Bandsaw Stabilization Complete

01-15-2012 03:25 PM by AmandasHusband | 6 comments »

I’ve been working on this bandsaw for quite a while now. Early last year I replaced the belt and changed the tires and put a mobile base under her. Then, back over the summer, I bought some lead tape and balanced the wheels. I also replaced the stock blade with a 1/4” Olson one. The guy at Woodcraft talked me out of the Timberwolf. Why, I’ll never know. This thing barely cuts better than the stock blade. Anyway, back in the fall, as this thing is still vibrating too...
