Revamping and Updating my Old Shop #5: Interim update. Wiring the Delta 50-760 Sawdust Collector for 220

1771 days ago by Jim Bertelson | 8 comments »

The Delta 50-760 Sawdust Collector comes wired for 110 volts. Had some issues with lights dimming, especially when running the sawdust collector and one of the big saws. I have decided, therefore, to put the dust collector and the two saws on 220, and then put a line stabilizer on my wifes longarm quilter circuit. The dust collector, in particular, seems to be an amps hog. I had seen a post about the noise level and pitch changing and becoming obnoxious on 220. So I approached it wondering if...

CARPENTER ANT DAMAGE TO OUR GAZEBO SHED ROOF #3: The Grand Finally! SKUNK TRAPPING!

1774 days ago by Dick, & Barb Cain | 17 comments »

While doing this remodeling job, every once in awhile we could smell a faint odor of Skunk. When I was cleaning up the area, & picking up scrap chunks of wood, I discovered digging in an area at the edge of the deck next to the shed entrance. I figured this must be from a Skunk. So I dug out the Skunk trap I had made years ago, when we had a Skunk incident. ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ First I had to repair the trap, because the tripping mech...

Hand Tool Injustice #1: What I don't want to admit about hand tools.

1782 days ago by douginaz | 10 comments »

Lets face it. Most of the people I deal with are primarily a power tool person or hand tool person. There is that rare breed that toggles between the two with little effort but I’m not one of um. I admit to being a power tool junkie. I just never saw the need for a huge selection of numbers of planes whose numbers escape my little mind. Naturally I do have a block plane, a rabbit plane and a scraper I picked up in Germany. I am in the middle of making a coffee grinder for my siste...

finishing with mineral spirits

1788 days ago by kosta | 2 comments »

Yo whats up everybody I am working on a project now and I found something out today that really surprised me if you put a polyurethane down over top of a oil based finish then it is a really rough surface if you sand it but if you take a rag soaked with mineral spirits then it removed that rough coat and it seals the wood up really good.
