Where to Buy Screws

01-27-2018 04:44 AM by IantheTinker | 7 comments »

I mostly purchase general construction screws from Menards, the Star-bit drive ones because they don’t cam out on me like the Phillips heads do. I get them there for $3.79 per one pound box, a great price for a good screw. However, they don’t carry any shorter than 1 3/4”, so I tried at Home Depot. I found some star drive screws there for $5.78 per one pound box and they had 1”, 1 1/4”, and 1 5/8” sizes, so I was quite pleased. The price was also pretty decent in my estimation. Over at Lowe’s...

Mobile Workstation #2: Let's do the twist!

03-16-2012 11:44 PM by chopnhack | 1 comment »

Ok, so it’s much more fun to dance than to fix…. Apparently welding a frame should not be undertaken without proper support, or ahh… more experience. The frame had a twist to it across the 59.5” length! I cleared a section of the shop floor (miracle) got out my door installation level and found a fairly level area. I then proceeded to use some shims to adjust the floor until the it was perfectly level. Gotta give credit to the guys that screeded the floor some 50 y...

Workbench #10: Making Wooden Nuts

10-08-2011 04:35 AM by CartersWhittling | 27 comments »

Hello. In this video I show you how I make wooden nuts for my bench with a tap my friend Chris Legendre and I built. I explain some of the details about the tap and show you how its used and set up. Again like I mentioned in my last blog entry, I will be making a video later showing you how to acually make the tap. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cztX3GSPBYM&list=UU6RUw1NtwJL0P9C86W54keg

Machinist Toolcart #11: Almost there. The end of all marking and cutting

09-12-2011 05:48 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

We had a beautiful weekend, blue clear sky, sun shining and smiling, birds were singing, even the temperature was behaving – just a beautiful weekend. and I was sick. I waited until I could regain enough focus since loss of focus in woodworking is a bad idea and can only lead to disastrous consequences either to the project or worse to ones self and trotted to the garage only to find that the material I had planned to use didn’t look all that fitting to the purpose of acting...

Beads Box #10: Get Up on your Feet! Routing Safety and Avoiding Tearout

01-10-2011 01:35 AM by PurpLev | 11 comments »

I was able to get to the garage today as a request for a new shelf for the kitchen was in. While there I saw some cutoff pieces of mahogany that I had piled up from the past 2 projects, and saw 4 legs hidden in those waiting to come out to life. I had wanted to put legs on this box from the get go but wasn’t set on a design that I liked and was mentally blocked with it. I decided to make 3 1.5” x 1.5” x 1” legs and just chamfer the bottoms – just to have so...

Screw Rehab: The New Head

06-05-2010 03:48 PM by Eric | 1 comment »

A complete stranger might think I’m bitter about being treated for drug dependency or something…no, no, not that kind of rehab… Today I glued up the block that will eventually be the new head of my old screw. Just for fun, I decided to laminate a piece of pine in the middle of two pieces of kapur. I don’t know what this might do as far as wood movement, as far as laminating softwood in between hardwood – I have no idea but I don’t care! It’s fu...

Router Table #13: Leveling the Insert - Incra Style

02-01-2010 06:18 AM by PurpLev | 10 comments »

Up until now I was leveling my insert (also on my TS) with blue painters tape – yeah, ghetto, but it works, cheap, and available. When I made the order with Lee Valley last week, I ordered a pack of 10 capscrews and though I’d try to incorporate the leveling concept on the Incra made table. as I stated in my previous post- If I had to start it over, I’d just order the table top from Incra and be done with it – they are worth their price. however. since I already had...

Router Table #5: Half Throttle - Cabinet is Framed!

12-26-2009 04:20 AM by PurpLev | 16 comments »

I picked up today where I left yesterday. today however, I had a bit more time to work on this. I printed the face frame design/layout from Sketchup, and out to the freezer we go: I added the 2nd piece that makes up the back (had to use 2 pieces of plywood as I don’t have 1 large enough part for the back), and then I noticed that my plywood carcass is a bit out of wack- the back aligns with the left side, but the right side is a bit lower, ah crap, I guess I’ll have to shim...

Handplanes #2: Cap Iron, and Lever Cap Positioning

08-19-2009 08:04 PM by PurpLev | 8 comments »

Hi, I’ve seen these questions raised on several threads, and for many years didn’t know the answer to these myself. I just stumbled upon the “answers” which reminded me of the questions, so I figured I’d post it here for anyone that might be able to use it. I stumbled upon these on Lee-Valley website which is a golden fountain of knowledge if you know how to find it (some of their articles and tips are not visible, nor easy to come upon unless you stumble upon...
