Woodworking Safety #1: Introduction and my intent

2181 days ago by tooldad | 15 comments »

I have a suggestion from one of my senior’s in my classes, also a LJ (tooldads_apprentice), to post podcasts of safety lessons as we do them during class on LJ. This would allow students to review or makeup safety packets if they were absent during demos. I thought great idea and am going to take it a little further. I am going to enlist the aide of our video production class to help produce the videos. Look out Wood Whisperer!. Episodes will include, hopefully, 1-General Shop Sa...

Shop projects #1: Super sled

1244 days ago by Skip Brewer | 2 comments »

So, after a little kickback scare cross-cutting some 1/2” plywood, I decided to upgrade my cross-cutting sled. The one I have been using sits on only one side of the blade and has just a small fence and no hold downs. This can allow the work to rotate away from the fence and toward the blade (causing the aforementioned scare). After doing some research here and other places on the Net, I found the Super Sled design from the Eagle Lake Woodworking site. I am going to attempt to build...

Safety week router right hand rule

1931 days ago by spaids | 13 comments »

I thought I would jump in with safety week and share my trick for remembering which direction I want my router going. This might be old news to many of you but I came up with this on my own and it works for me. I use my right hand. I point my thumb to the edge that I’m going to be cutting and my index finger points in the direction the router needs to go. If I’m routing around the outside edge of a piece the I touch my thumb to the outside edge and I end up routing in a coun...

Shop Fire Safety #1: Hazards in the Workshop

1521 days ago by PocketHole69 | 7 comments »

This was originally a comment on this forum thread. I’m posting it again here so more people might see it and avoid serious fire and safety issues in their shop. —————— I’m a firefighter and the head of the emergency response team for a company that specializes in industrial fire protection. Before switching to the industrial side I worked several years as a municipal firefighter. First of all, the original posters assumption that the risk o...

A Word on Shop Safety

2078 days ago by Chris Wright | 5 comments »

So, we are all aware of the inherent dangers involved in woodworking, and if you are unaware of these dangers then you really need to pay attention. For those who are a little squeamish then I recommend skipping past the image, there’s some blood. Now, I’ll be the first to admit, that of all the possible things that could have happened here, I am very lucky. This happened about 2 years ago now. I was cutting a thin strip of wood on the table saw, I was using a push stick b...

Craftsman 113 table saw upgrades.... #1: Not a true blog...

109 days ago by rhybeka | 13 comments »

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the possible/plausible/necessary upgrades that I need/want to do to my table saw (and other tools but this one takes precedence). So I thought well… I should probably put them in some kind of order – not necessarily in any order – maybe somewhat necessity? As a newb, I just want to make sure my equipment is running as well and as safely as it possibly can. It’s already in great condition for it’s age and I&#...

Splitter from a shelf bracket

226 days ago by CueballRosendaul | 3 comments »

My new (to me) Unisaw didn’t come with any safety equipment, and I’ve been having trouble finding a splitter that I like, so I decided that until I find one I really like, I’ll just make one and add it to my new ZC throat plate. I laid in bed last night racking my brain over what material I might have that would be easy to work with and I remembered some old shelf brackets I wasn’t using. I popped the end cap off, cut the dog legs off, did most of the filing and shapin...
