Yo whats up everybody I wanted to do a blog post on sanders because I have gotten a lot of questions about them. There are basically 3 sizes of sanders hand sanders, benchtop sanders, and stationary sanders. Hand sanders include palm sanders, random orbit sanders or ROS, detail sanders, and belt sanders. Palm sanders vibrate back and forth and you can get in corners with them because the bottom of the sander is a square shape. Random orbit sanders spin and vibrate and you get a really polishe...
A little history, set your wayback machine all the way back to 1974, I went to the mall where my mom worked one weekend, and there was this guy, he had the coolest machine and he was making all this stuff with just that one machine! that’s my rough approximation of when I first learned about the Shopsmith. I bugged my parents for years following that, I just ‘knew’ that I could so so much really cool stuff if I had one. Forward to this past summer. My uncle decides he ...
I have a Walnut table top I have put attached to the frame. What are your thoughts for a finish, what should I use. I don’t want to worry about water spots or something warm being put on it and the finish peeling up.

i have an 84 by 16×39” Parsons Bench. It is in my second bedroom, up agains the only avalable wall in the room (it’s a gambrel house; my outer walls are slanted inward). The bench has become the despignated storage area for stuff from all the other rooms… stationary supplies form my office/computer area, tools, clothes, books, old computer monitors, junk, sewing supplies and torn clothing, etc. it’s overflowing. so, i drew up a set of plans for a set of sh...
I tried keeping it as simple as possible, and worked the best I could to make the grain complimentary, and this is what I have been able to come up with. What you see here will NOT be what is all visible above ground. Remember I have dot have something sunk into the concrete footer right? The design is pretty simple. Cross built from double layer cedar 2×4s, 12” wide x 24” tall (above ground). The edges are all relieved with my 1/2” 22.5 degree chamfer bit. I thought...
First, some good news. The dust blowing all over last time was not indicative of poor dust collection in this machine. After closing up shop for the day, it bugged me all night, and I figured there must have been something I missed. There was. Under the belt on the back of the machine is a blast gate. D’oh. Opening that, the dust collection becomes quite good. No more dust spewing in all directions, but this thing sands very aggressively, so hard sanding does result in a little bit kick...
It’s the JET – JSG-96CS: 6’’ x 48’’ Belt / 9’’ Disc Sander w/ Closed Stand, 3/4HP 1Ph, 115V. It arrived by pallet in two boxes: Right away the 3/4HP motor and belt seemed bigger than I’d imagined this past year or two (this has been on my wishlist for awhile now). I had even scaled up my mental image, but it was still bigger than I thought: The closed stand is a very thick sheet metal, and heavier than I expected. It was a...
This is a piece I plan to build over the next few months to use as a show piece in craft fairs and possibly to put in a gallery. I have lots of connections in the art world so hopefully I can find a home for it.
