1711 days ago by holsworthwoodworks | 2 comments »

Hey friends! Just wanted to update everyone and let you guys know that I will be visiting my daughter soon so that I can upload my new cabinet made from Zebrawood. I am not computer savvy hence why she is going to post it for me. I am VERY excited about this project and I have taken it to my local woodworkers club- Diable Woodworkers for show and tell. Can’t wait for everyone to see it! Thanks for reading and Happy Holidays!! Sincerely,Glenn Holsworth

Jet JSG-6 Restoration #4: New Platen & Pad Installed, I'd Call This Project Done!

1713 days ago by BlankMan | 9 comments »

Well the platen arrived Wednesday and the pad for it arrived Friday so I was able to put ‘er together and she’s good to go. Waiting for the new on/off switch yet, that will arrive Tuesday but if I need to, I can use it. Had it running today to adjust the belt tracking, that was fairly easy. Put a 120 grit belt on for starters so we’ll see and I’ll go from there. I was going to post a before and after of the belt’s cast iron table to show the results of using T...

Jet JSG-6 Restoration #3: Platen Arrived & Installed And Belt Table installed

1716 days ago by BlankMan | 5 comments »

The new platen arrived today for behind the belt so I installed it, but I’m still waiting for the pad that goes between it and the belt and it was ordered before the platen. I took the opportunity to replace the bolts that hold the platen in place and are used to adjust it with stainless steel bolts and I also replaced the bolts that attach the belt tensioning assembly with stainless steel button head bolts. All of the bolts had varying degrees of rust on their heads so this was just do...

New tool arriving

1716 days ago by rustfever | 12 comments »

Tomorrow, at 9;30 AM, my new ‘old’ Hans stroke sander is to arrive. This one has a 120” X 48” table and an 8” belt. The tables adjusts in/out/up/down. I have been lusting for this tool for some thirty years, after having used one briefly in the late ‘70’s. It is just the size to work upon that ‘promised’ dining room table for Son and his wife. I harvested a number of Claro Walnut trees and root-balls a year ago. The 4/4 material i...

Jet JSG-6 Restoration #2: Sanding Disc and Table Installed

1718 days ago by BlankMan | 4 comments »

Well, I didn’t get a lot of time to be in the workshop today but I did get the disc platen cleaned up and the sanding disc installed. I also cleaned up its cast iron table. It had a slight coat of rust from sitting in the garage and then when I used 409 and hot water to clean it. Got the rust off with TopSaver and then sprayed a coat of Top Cote on it. It’s as smooth as a baby’s bottom. Oh and I decided to replace the platen behind the belt due to it being dished in a bit...

Jet JSG-6 Restoration #1: Cleaning It Up: Before & After

1719 days ago by BlankMan | 2 comments »

Well I got a little side tracked from working on my dust hood for the chop saw with this now. I picked up this sander in Spring at GM’s Janesville plant’s auction. It’s been sitting in the garage on the floor since then, one, because it was summer, two, because I didn’t have any room for it benchtop wise. So I decided to buy Jet’s closed stand for it and on October 4 I ordered it. Well the cabinet arrived on November 3rd but it was damaged, had a nice dent in it....

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

1719 days ago by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

Tools and tool troubles. #2: Buying used tools at auction

1724 days ago by Roz | 12 comments »

I got a call the other day from my brother-in-law the auctioneer. He ask if I was interested in a couple of sanding tables. Knowing nothing about them I said sure I’ll give you 100.00 a piece for them. So they went through the sale and I got them both. I passed one along to another LJ who lives in my area and we split the expense. They came from a large cabinet company that went out of business. The bad news is that there were several nice tools that went very cheap the week b...
