Dave's Workshop #11: Puttering Around with Loose Ends

08-19-2015 08:19 PM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

There’s been a few things in my shop that I’ve had in the back of my head to do, things to improve my situation. So these last couple of days I’ve decided to tackle a few. They are not all pictured below. [Below] Somewhere in the past I bought this Porter Cable 8 inch, variable speed grinder. I remember during my research that one complaint about it was that the goose neck light only received power when the grinder was turned on. In other words when the light was on the...

Well, went down to the shop this morning, removed the lid blank from the clamps…meh Needed a bit of saw work to square things up to the box.

Laid the box on the lid, drew some pencil lines. Bandsaw TRIED to follow the lines….need to work on the bandsaw later… Lid was a bit large for the...

Stanley No. 104 Wood Level Restoration

08-16-2015 03:59 AM by Jorgearaujo | 7 comments »

This story starts on a Saturday morning when I got a Facebook message from my friend Rob. “We are having a yard sale and there are a ton of old tools” Rob said. So ofcourse I got in my car and headed over there. I found a lot of great old tools but this week we will focus on the Level I found, It’s a Stanley No. 104 Level 18” long. This will make a great restoration project I thought… I made a video of the restoration as well, you can see it here: View on Yo...

Screwed in place,but no glue. Got the corner blocks all installedI can then cut slotted holes. Just drill a hole in center of the block, then rock the drill back and forth towards the sides. This allows the top to expand and contract as it wants. A single screw in ...

End Table project #5: Narrow end came out of the clamps...

07-28-2015 02:37 AM by bandit571 | 1 comment »

Made sure that the side that was “up” was the inside of the panel. A few 5/8” long brads, three per joint, were driven in. I also, before the nails, flush the filler piece. Once all the nails were in and set, the sander took over. Everything nie and flat. Turned the panel over,...

07-27-2015 08:03 PM by bandit571 | 3 comments »

Well, at least it is now in a few clamps. Started off the day checking over the two side panels, now that they are out of the clamps….One was a bit wider at the bottom? Ok, scribed a line to match the other panel. Saw the extra stuff off. Rail was too long at the bottom. 1/4” down to 0” along one side. Dressed the saw marks with a plane. leveled the glue joints up. with a plane, and a sander with 60 grit pad. Got both looking spiffy, compared to last night...
