To Give is better than to Receive

04-24-2017 01:53 PM by Jace McDaniel | 0 comments »

My little cousin is getting married this year so my aunt asked if i could make her a blanket/storage/keepsake chest. This was my very first blanket chest/storage chest build but of course i wouldn’t turn down the opportunity!(quick side note, So i do about 90% of my work with hand tools only, i do all the milling and and joinery and basically everything other than long board rips, then i use a table saw…just thought this was important for you to know in this part of the story) So yeah…normal...

Shopnotes 126 Belt Sander #4: Dust Cover

04-13-2017 04:30 AM by OregonWoodRat | 3 comments »

I originally found this guys video and could not tell very well how he built the dust cover but it gave me the idea and it is very much needed.Here is a link to his build so I can give credit where it is due.http://www.woodworkingtalk.com/f13/im-building-belt-sander-46413/ He built his out of 3/4 ply. I made most of mine out of 1/4 ply. Here are what some of the parts look like before assembly. I did make it out of cardboard first so I could get the shapes correct. I assembled every...

Shopnotes 126 Belt Sander #3: Belt Guard and Power switch

04-12-2017 04:29 AM by OregonWoodRat | 3 comments »

The belt guard took some figuring for me. Mine ended up taller than the plans due to I allowed the drive shaft to stick out further to allow for a different pulley in the future. The plans called for it to be 1.5 inches tall and I made mine 2.5 inches. The tool rest arm is made of the same oak as the pivot arm. So it was very hard to cut a slot in it. In the end I really like how it turned out. Someone on the internet posted a sander restore and made a wooden box for...

Shopnotes 126 Belt Sander #2: Pivot arm and Platen

04-12-2017 03:48 AM by OregonWoodRat | 0 comments »

So I decided to paint the base winter grey. The pivot arm and related parts used polyurethane. I like how the base turned out since it was old growth pine. I cut a simple 45 all around it. The pivot arm is some kind of foreign oak type of wood. It is very hard and was smoking my table sawblade. The motor I am using a 1/3 HP Ge from the 50’s. It still works great. At first I had the 3 inch pulley on the sander and the 2 inch on the motor. I found it ran too slow. Af...

Shopnotes 126 Belt Sander #1: The base and rollers

04-11-2017 03:38 AM by OregonWoodRat | 2 comments »

Building the ShopNotes Belt Sander turned me into a Time Thief. I would steal time to work out in the shop. Sometimes it was as little as 5 minutes or just before going to church. The most time was generally on a Saturday and I would get a whole 6-8 hours in the shop. Overall it was a fun project. For the frame I used cabinet grade pine plywood from Home Depot. The plans called for the top pivot bolt to be threaded into a tapped hole but I never had much luck with that so I ...
