Krager Woodworking jigs #3: Finally, Safe Storage For Draw Knife

09-04-2012 11:59 PM by Dan Krager | 0 comments »

A flash of inspiration hit me today as I was examining some old 45 blade storage boxes. My draw knife has rattled about loosely in a box with nothing but underwear on (a cardboard tube from paper towels). It was kinda like reaching into a pit of vipers digging around in that box. But now, I have a safe and useful storage “jig”. Dan

My spring clamps have a lot of miles on them. Which mean that little plastic coating on the end is gone. And sometimes i need that on the clamp. So here is a little tip which replaces that. If you like the video, we post new ones every Thursday at our youtube channel.

Making of a Shopmade Splitter...

08-17-2012 03:49 AM by DeLayne Peck | 2 comments »

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...

Signs of trouble ahead

07-30-2012 02:22 PM by bluejazz | 4 comments »

While I was preparing to do some re-sawing on my (Grizzly 550) bandsaw yesterday I had unique- at least to me- experience. I had just reset the guides and tested with a rip cut just to be sure all was well. While ripping I notice the blade doing some crazy stuff; it would push forward and then move back, almost like an orbital jigsaw motion. I stopped the saw as quick as I could and opened the wheel housings and rotated the wheels by hand. Sure enough the blade would track the center and...

Crazy Stuff Stumpy Thinks About #19: Safety week? We don't need no stinking safety week! (Stumpy's Safety Poster)

05-02-2012 12:36 PM by StumpyNubs | 34 comments »

It’s woodworking safety week. I know, I’ve been planning for months. This morning I finished decorating the safety tree, I hung the red halogen safety lights all over the outside of the shop. My wife is wearing her safety dress and I am drinking decaffeinated coffee this morning, because someone said it was safer. These days there’s a “week” for everything. We just wrapped up “earth week”, already the third or fourth one this year it seems, which u...

shop safety and bad luck

04-09-2012 04:58 PM by joey bealis | 5 comments »

I don’t much like a lot of personal safety equipment. I always use safety glasses but that is usually about it. I feel like I am suffocating when using dust masks. Face shields are just large and bulky. I don’t like gloves because you can not feel what you are working with. These excuses may be idiotic and if I would use the equipment I would get used to it.So the other day I was doing a hollow form on the lathe out of a piece of dried beech. I was using a swan neck scraper and it...

Can I get a free SawStop? #1: I think I have an idea so that all of us woodworkers can get a free Saw-Stop!!

03-04-2012 05:21 AM by sillac | 21 comments »

What do you all think of this? If collage girls now will be able to get $3000.00 over 3 years for birth control protection, under Obama Care, the reasoning being that this is cheaper for all the rest of us tax payers than for the girl getting pergnet for having her social fun; and what is the cost for the rest of her socially fun life, then how much more cheaper is it for the tax payers to pay for a Saw-Stop table saw, about $3000.00, for all woodworkers so that the woodworkers can have safe...

A few things I leaned in the Shop today.

02-25-2012 01:03 AM by rotorwash | 1 comment »

1. Make sure the first piece in a batch run is the right dimensions. 2. I get things finished faster when I take my time. 3. Sawdust is slippery! (I really need dust collection). 4. Know when it’s time to put the saw down and go have that tea party with your 4 year old daughter!

Distressed Pine Island/Table #1: I seriously took a flying knot to the head

02-18-2012 01:58 AM by AmandasHusband | 4 comments »

The mother-in-law has been nagging me to build this “table” for about a year. The problem is, she wants something different every time I talk to her about it. She’s settled on 79”x30” at about 38” tall. She wants square legs, 3 sides enclosed, and two shelves. Oh, and she wants it made out of knotty pine to look distressed. So I started it last weekend. Went to Home Depot for some 2×6’s and 2×4’s. Then i glued then squared up ...
