Spindle Lighting

07-29-2013 12:12 PM by Henri Monnier | 3 comments »

This ‘thing’ about getting really good light near and around the spindle on my CNC table has been a real PITA for me. I have tried various ideas from the web, and other places. Many worked reasonably well, but each had factors, shadows, etc., that I did not like. I think finally I have arrived at a very good solution that works like a champ, is easy to install, and the price is right! I have a “Kent’s” dust shoe on the base of the router (love that shoe!) but ...

Shop (Garage) Redo #3: Tools, Thank you Craig's List

02-01-2013 04:19 PM by PASs | 2 comments »

Thought I’d try this tool gloat as a blog entry. i’ve had the Powermatic 3520b for a few months now (gotta blog that.) When I first got it the two old Craftsman lathes had to go away ‘cause there weren’t no room in the inn for three lathes.So I put them under tarps in the driveway and Craig’s listed them to new homes. I knew when I got the 3520 that there was only one place in the garage for it…under the 14 inch I beam that runs from the front to t...

Safety (or the lack thereof) #1: Rule #3, if your lathe has a safety shield and you can use it....DO!!!

01-14-2013 05:06 AM by PASs | 8 comments »

My wife, who loves me more than I deserve, let me get a new lathe a few months ago. A Powermatic 3520b.I love this lathe, especially better than the old Craftsman tube-types I had. Anyway, I’ve flung a few pieces of wood off the lathes over the past 40+ years, and I’m always conscious to keep my face shield/mask/goggles in place (unless I forget in the heat of the moment.)But the safety cage just looked better holding a couple of worklights than down in its intended position. ...

Rule #1 (not what you think)

10-27-2012 02:56 AM by Lifesaver2000 | 11 comments »

A lot has been written about safety in the workshop. We all know there is no more important rule than to wear safety glasses. Breathing protection, hearing protection, blade guards, riving knives and many other things are mentioned repeatedly. But tonight I just happen to be in the mood to talk about MY number ONE safety rule: when to not go in to the shop. As may be deduced from my username and avatar, my work often has me up at all hours of the day and night. So it should be no surpr...

Hot Time in the Ol' Shop, A Heater Safety Tip...

09-23-2012 03:59 PM by DeLayne Peck | 6 comments »

Got the crap scared out of me last night, BIG TIME. The temperature dipped to 38 degrees in Lincoln, aka the HuskerPlex. To bump the temp up in my detached garage shop, I plugged in my large, forced-air, torpedo heater. It blew a continuous stream of sparks and flaming shreds of debris all over everywhere. After a wild-eyed panic stop, carefully checking for burning embers, and changing my pants, I figured it out. Mice had built a large nest in the heater. Resulting Safety Tip: E...

Safety Mod for my Table Saw

09-21-2012 10:48 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

My table saw has a simple pull push switch and for a long time I’ve puzzled over how to add one of those paddle switch mods to it. There have been times when I would have felt more comfortable being able to power down my saw without moving my hands. Like usual I thought about it for a while and just recently came up with this. Above the switch itself is a sort of ledge just big enough to fasten a small hinge. I attached the hinge to a 10 inch length of 1/8 inch hardboard. I cut ...
