Performax 16/32 Drum Sander

08-23-2010 09:45 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 9 comments »

Well, my show went very well this weekend so I am looking for a drum sand so I can improve the quality of my cutting boards and produce some end grain boards. I just found one on craigslist for $395 and now I need some advice. The manufacture date on the motor is ‘96 and the color of the unit is green. I am not sure when they switched to white. Other then listening/checking for bad bearings and looking at the overall condition, what else should I be looking at or for. This unit als...

Project SC #4: Its like that and thats the way it is

08-12-2010 05:10 PM by BritBoxmaker | 31 comments »

So 1st fallback reached yesterday. I have to border the pattern. For the pattern glue-ups I used a traditional glue, PVA. This is good for this purpose but if I had mitred all edges (and the top) the tiny 1mm squares at each corner might not have held on at all. Worse still is the possibility that they would chip off over time. So bordered it is. Using 7mm strips of Purpleheart I set out the patterns to give me an overall idea of what it would look like. I then labelled everything s...

Sanding is for the Birds

08-08-2010 05:10 AM by Chefdavid | 10 comments »

I am new to LJ but not new to woodworking. I have been building and collecting the tools of the trade for about 7 years. I enjoy designing, than building, and finishing. The one thing that I truly do not enjoy doing is sanding. I have a palm sander, orbital sander, belt sander, oscillating edge/belt/spindle sander, and a hand sander. With all that cool equipment and my search to make it more enjoyable I have just ended up with more toys and dust. I am currently working on a loft bed for my d...

Desk Build #1: Layout & Milling Materials

08-05-2010 02:14 PM by Huckleberry | 3 comments »

I know this is a little out of order but I needed to get started on these desks ahead of the garbage can containers. What is great about these desks is that we will be using different kinds of joinery. We’ll be laminating the legs, pocket hole joinery for the aprons and top. Plus there will be some edge banding happening too. You will also see how I build my drawer boxes and the material that I use for this in future episodes. Don’t forget to sign up for Huck’s (hucksdi...

techniques #6: tattoo removal via handheld sander

07-22-2010 01:53 PM by Gary Fixler | 12 comments »

It’s mildly gruesome, if very low-quality – fair warning – but here’s a page with a video of a unique use for the Black & Decker Mega Mouse (the one with the comfort gel pads on top) – sanding out an unwanted tattoo. The guy laying on the ground and having his left pectoralis major sanded to a vivid crimson seems unaffected by it, but also seems a little surprised when he sees it, stating “Wow, that s**t pulled me open pretty good.” Indeed....
