Tool thoughts #49: Greetings from beyond the edge of the world

290 days ago by NedB | 5 comments »

Hi gang, I know some of you have thought I fell over the edge of the world… Not at all. I simply haven’t had much blog time, or if I did have time, I didn’t have a lot of progress to report. That is what I’ve been ‘up to’, and who really needed to see yet another set of end grain boards in progress here on LJ’s? the LOML booked me into a show this coming weekend, and I’ve been out in the shop going through all of the necessary ...

CC's Book Case #4: Top of the case

291 days ago by SquintyPolock | 0 comments »

I used a chisel to knock off most of the glue squeeze out. Then I used 80-grit sandpaper on the orbital sander to smooth out the joints on both sides. Nothing makes your arms tingle like using that sander for a good 15 – 20 minutes! Squared up the sides on the table saw and trimmed the corners round with the jig saw. I used the jig saw to cut up to the lines and used the orbital sander for the final trim. Last, a little hand sanding to get the corners right. (The boy got into so...

Drill Press Station - Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander

308 days ago by steliart | 6 comments »

Drill Press Station – Table/Lift/Fence/Vise/Drum Sander My drill press is a small inexpensive bench top type, and until I get a good floor type one I am trying to get the best out of it. One of the first things I did was to change its old pole with a stainless steel one. Why stainless steel? Well it was the only piece I could find that matched the diameter and you can slide up and down smoother. So the pole got a lift-up of about a foot taller. One of those ikea wire sh...

308 days ago by mickeyt | 0 comments »

How to convert your Performax drum sanders 2 ½ inch dust port to a 4 inch for less then 5 bucks I have the older model 16 – 32 Performax drum sander like this one and at times it is a pain in the you know what with the belt always needing consent adjustment and keeping the machines drum head level. I really love the machine and what can be done with it.But it kicks up a lot of fine dust, my dust collector system works pretty well but as we all know it is next to impossible to ...

Mission Style Pedestal Table #5: Applying finish and completing the build

315 days ago by Douglas | 6 comments »

After a few weeks away due to travel and rainy weather, I was finally able to finish the table. The formula I was following was similar to what I used on an earlier folding step stool water based Transtint dye, sprayed shellac, and then as this was a table, Arm-R-Seal oil & urethane topcoat. I started with the dye, first wetting everything to raise grain, and then light sanding with 220 to knock down the stander uppers. I then mixed the Transtint Mission Brown dye power with distiller...

This is my attempt at a book box.Made with mahogany and pine. For the inlay I just used the table saw to make the grove.The hinges have taken up the most time but are very rewarding once they work properly. I will update the project as it progresses with photos.

Work Sharp 2000 Stand #2: Making Dust

328 days ago by dschlic1 | 2 comments »

Finally had time to start cutting the parts for the stand. Here is a photo of all of the pieces cut: I used a Dremel tool to cut the disks. Rather than buy the plastics disks from Work Sharp, I made some disks from hardboard and also from MDF. My design called for grooves to be cut into the MDF for the 3/16” hardboard shelves and backs. I couldn’t find a 3/16” router bit locally, so I ended up using an 1/8” bit in the Dremel and making two passes. A big hassle to...

Louver Door Repair #4: Sanding and Painting

329 days ago by SquintyPolock | 1 comment »

So, the boy finally woke up from his nap and I ripped down one long peice. I then used one of my first wood working tools; a plastic miter box bought at HD of maybe Seigles (anyone remember that place?) about 15 years ago. I cut the board to two lengths and then to the back yard for a little hand sanding pool side, while the boy played in the kiddy pool. That is a funny picture – looks like I only have three fingers, but I assure you, I have five and yeah, that’s ...
