Child Safety In The Home Workshop

1370 days ago by swampjack80 | 11 comments »

Hi everyone, So, I finally made it out to my shop today after a good/bad couple of Thanksgiving off-days. Good because I was able to spend some time with my family, bad because I had to watch Auburn mount a great comeback against my beloved Crimson Tide, bleh! So what could be a better way to unwind than piddling around all day in the ol’ workshop? Well, I’m running a few short boards through the planer when my wife and 3 yr old son, Chad Jr., pay me a visit. I try to keep a sa...

This is What Table Saw Kickback Looks Like (Warning: A Little Graphic)

1409 days ago by PocketHole69 | 21 comments »

I have a Ridgid R4510 portable contractors saw- its the new and improved version that replaced the TS2410 and it’s a great saw. The problem is, when I bought it they did not yet have available a dado insert so I made my own out of 1/4” plywood and some leveling screws. Saturday night I was cutting dados on my table saw when my home made dado throat plate slid forward and caught on the dado blade. I was doing everything right- using a miter gauge with an extended fence, not us...

3 bandaids later....

1409 days ago by MsDebbieP | 35 comments »

Oct. 20/10 Today I started to tackle the task of Xmas present making—some bottle stoppers. It has been a while since I’ve worked on the lathe but things were going well. I took a break to prepare dinner and while peeling some potatoes the peeler slipped and sliced the end of my finger. (no—the accident didn’t happen at the lathe.) I guess I did a pretty good job on the cut because it took 3 bandaids and elevation of the hand to get the finger to stop bleeding. (w...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #3: Shutdown - Sometimes Stopping is More Important Than Starting

1411 days ago by TheGravedigger | 0 comments »

This article was originally posted on the Little Good Pieces blog on September 15, 2010 ”Sometimes stopping is more important than starting.” After my wife’s adventure with the mower, we did an after-action analysis. This practice is a good idea after any sort of mishap to determine if anything can be changed to prevent a recurrence. She kept saying, “If I could have just stopped the blades…”. <address> </address>I made the suggestion that s...

From the "Little Good Pieces" Blog Archives #2: Seeing the Fangs

1420 days ago by TheGravedigger | 2 comments »

This article was originally posted on the “Little Good Pieces” blog on September 11, 2010: My wife had a nasty scare the other day. She was mowing near the house with our zero-turn mower when she accidentally ran over an old bath mat the dogs had dragged up. The mower started a nasty vibration that jerked her body and thusly the control levers. The mower immediately took off like a bucking bronco, tearing a chunk out of the doghouse roof, knocking a support post completely loos...

Shop Journal #1: Shop Safety Outside of the Shop.

1451 days ago by Brian Havens | 3 comments »

I do not really care for home improvement projects. Well, perhaps that is a little harsh. I should say that I do not enjoy them nearly as much as designing and building fine furniture. The other part of home improvement that I do not like is that I seem to be much more prone to injury doing home improvement projects. more....

Work(shop) in Progress #10: Reorganizing Single Car Garage I - The plan.

1465 days ago by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Lately, everytime I go to the garage whether it be to get something, or work on something I tend to always come back with bruised/scratched shins. The garage is a somewhat of a mine field. It never really started as a workshop, so tools and machines just accumulated as they came with no order or planning and each one made it more and more stuffy and cramped. My wife just asked me ‘why don’t you take everything out and reorganize the place’.... hmm.. that means spending...

Table Saw Kickback

1470 days ago by dustyal | 27 comments »

I fought the saw and the saw won. As it will 100% of the time. So, I thought I would post this blog to remind everyone that it happens. Actually, this is the first kick back that I have experienced. I know why it happens. I know how to prevent the likelihood that it will happen. I use caution. But, it happened anyway. It threw a 18 X 20 piece of 3/4 ply at me, frisbee style. It so torqued the saw blade on the arbor shaft, that I cannot remove the nut to remove the blade to inspect fo...
