Tool Gloat

03-27-2010 11:32 PM by davidroberts | 15 comments »

OK, I’ve got a tool gloat. I normally only buy woodworking tools used or on sale. This purchase is arguably one of my best. Reguarly $119 at Lowes, this Porter Cable 4210 Type 1 12” Dovetail Jig (for half blind and sliding dovetails) was a display and had been marked down a couple of times. When I saw it the price was $50. But that’s not what I paid. I know dovetails are the center of the universe for some, but I have never cut a dovetail, well a few sliding dovetails on...

Beefing up the jamb to my new shop door.

03-23-2010 05:07 AM by 559dustdesigns | 0 comments »

Here is part two of my attempt at installing a new shop door. I again bought a cheap door and I am doing my best to reinforce the door and jamb from possibly being kicked in. I know this isn’t the most professional job, but I should only have about $150.00 into this project. The new door looks twice as good and is much more secure. In order to reinforce the jamb I first upgraded the strike plate which I showed in blog part 1. http://lumberjocks.com/559dustdesigns/blog/14664Today I f...

1972 Craftsman project, Opinions Welcome #3: Top is flat

03-23-2010 01:14 AM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

I tapped the holes that were meant for the original fence with a 10mm tap. I drilled and countersunk the angle irons with the center hole slightly higher than the ones near the edge. I then re clamped the top to take the bow out and attached the angle iron with Gr. 8 machine screws. After a few hours of hand filing and test fitting, I got the angle irons attached plus I put lock nuts on the inside. My smallest feeler guage is .008 and must be forced under the straight edge at the worst po...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #4: Endgrain is hard to sand.

03-21-2010 05:18 PM by Ger21 | 3 comments »

After thoroughly sealing the bottom and sides of the torsion box with a quart of polyurethane, it was time to surface the top flat. When I placed my 4 ft level on the bottom, it appeared to be flat to within < 1/64”. But for some reason, it appeared the top top had a slightly larger crown along it’s length, maybe 1/32” or so. So I lowered the bit to the surface, and started cutting just enough to not miss any spots. At first I was getting what appeared to be a very rough ...

Adding a double strike plate to the new shop door.

03-21-2010 02:52 PM by 559dustdesigns | 2 comments »

I have lived in my house almost 9 years, the previous owner built the house and the shop. I have always wanted to change the man door on my shop that leads to my house. The old owner put a hollow door and a dead bolt as the only lock system. He also clad the outside of the door in scraps of sheet metal. I recently bought a prehung 6 panel steel entry door to replace the cheaper ugly old one. Being that my friend and I often install stereo equipment in customers cars at my shop I needed a more...

Guitars - Classroom project #1: Shop assembly

03-19-2010 06:36 PM by unisaw2 | 8 comments »

I have volunteered to help the kids make their own guitars in class. The children are 9-10 year olds, and they are learning about sound. We want them to assemble/make as much as possible. The goal is to make a 4 string guitar that can be tuned. Notes will be A-D-G-B. The basic design is a 4 string neck, sauna tube body, and 1/8”mdf sound board. We are using real guitar tuners and strings, but everything else is going to be made in the shop, or in class. Need to make a total o...

Unisaw Torsion Box Fence Table #3: Finishing the top

03-17-2010 02:33 AM by Ger21 | 3 comments »

It’s been a while since I started on this, but was busy with my new job. But the weather forced me back into action. We’re having an unseasonably warm spring. 8 inches of snow melted in a few days, then rain, and 50°-60° temps. And a huge amount of humidity. I went out in the garage the other day, and was terrified to see the pieces that I ad already glued down loose on the torsion box. The humidity had expanded them so much that they were popping loose, actually tearing the s...

Triton Router -- Replaced the Worm Drive to Fix Lift Mechanism

03-15-2010 04:29 AM by thiel | 2 comments »

Gang, Like a few of you, I bought the FWW “Editors Pick” Triton MOFOO1 2.25 HP Router for use in my router table. That was about 18 months ago. Despite light use, the lift mechanism quickly broke. Triton (now owned by HTC) was apologetic and helpful with replacement parts. The culprit is a NYLON (wow, what a dumb design choice) worm drive. The worm drive strips when you lift the router a few times—-because there is too much downward pressure on the router from ...
