My Tools #3: More of my new JET JSG-96CS 6"x48" belt/9" disk sander

02-20-2010 03:21 AM by Gary Fixler | 5 comments »

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...

Mahogany Kitchen Stool Project #4: Setting laminations to final thickness

02-14-2010 06:09 AM by sras | 8 comments »

Once I have the 3 lamination blanks cut to width I thickness sand the strips to reach the final dimension. I have tried using my planer, but when the strips get this thin it is easy to end up with damage. I set my ShopSmith up as a disc sander and use a thicknessing jig. I first showed the use of this in a previous blog. There was some interest in a more detailed description so here it is. Here is the setup. Basically it is a 3 1/2 inch tall bullnosed block clamped to the fence. The...

Extremely Average #40: To Build or Not To Build

02-11-2010 05:10 AM by Ecocandle | 21 comments »

A while back I talked about my desire to buy or build a router table. Today I have decided. I will build. It will be glorious. The factors that influenced my decision were many; quality, precision, flatness of the table, and to some extent cost. When I weighed all the factors the scales were greatly tilted in favor of buying either the Incra super system or the Veritas system. I choose to build, because I wanted to. In a day or two, the router plate I ordered will arrive. This w...

Solid Wood Door glue-ups / Tips and Techniques

02-11-2010 03:15 AM by KnotWright | 6 comments »

One of the best things about Lumberjocks is that an individual can be exposed to so many different ways to do the same task. While you are working in your shop, you aren’t really exposed to too many different ways, normally the way you were taught, or how you figured it out, tends to be the way we always end up doing things. This way might not be the most efficient or productive, but it does get the job done. My question for everyone is how do you do the following task: I”...

techniques #3: PVC tube with hinged doors as lathe dust collector

02-08-2010 04:21 AM by Gary Fixler | 7 comments »

I was watching a YouTube video of a guy in Downtown Disney turning a baseball bat, and noticed he had a pretty simple and cool dust collection setup that’s easy to make, simple to use, and low-profile. Check it out. I’d embed the video, but I’m not sure how to cue it up to exactly the right location as I can with a link.

Great Tool Buys #2: Belt Sander Bargain

02-04-2010 04:08 AM by BRAY | 2 comments »

I found another Pawn Shop bargain. I came across a DeWalt belt sander tagged for $39. I took y’alls advice and asked for a better price. She sold it to me for $32. And once again, the tool appears to have very minimal use—almost new condition. I have read the reviews on the DeWalt DW431, they aren’t glowing reviews. But for $32 and how much I will use it, its a good buy.
