Goodell Pratt 125 Bench Lathe #6: Over complicating things [updated]

02-05-2013 10:29 PM by Rick M. | 2 comments »

[UPDATE: Scrap this idea, it doesn’t work. When I first tested the vibration was minimal but now it’s setting off an oscillation that makes it unworkable. Guess I will go back to over-complicating.] The motor mount I built was too low and allowed the pulley belt to rub the lathe frame. In the last entry I mentioned there were two solutions to the problem: 1: Create a raised platform for the motor that will bring it to the height of the lathe pulleys.2: Build a jackshaft that...

Goodell Pratt 125 Bench Lathe #4: The Stand

01-07-2013 05:49 AM by Rick M. | 4 comments »

Credit where it’s due, I basically copied this guy’s stand except I modified the top to work with my lathe. I had literally a wheelbarrow load of scrap fir 2×4’s from another project so I used as many as I could. (Note: never build anything from fir 2×4’s, the wood is soft and brittle, every little bump is a dent and pieces kept flaking off at the slightest provocation.) Sorry, I have no in-progress pics. Once I get started I don’t like to stop ...

Roller Stand Modification #1: Modifying Rockler HD Roller Stand

12-01-2012 06:09 PM by bohnsai | 0 comments »

I recently Purchased the Heavy Duty Roller Stands from Rockler (the ones with the 3 rows of roller balls).I thought they were an absolute solid product and probably some of the best roller stands available but the tops were SO heavy, it was impossible to adjust their height in fine amounts. Since all of my equipment at the moment is at different heights, this was a problem. I wanted to add a type of crank mechanism that would allow the stands to function similarly to a screw jack.So I went...

Stop motion video of a Walnut 3 tier stand

09-22-2012 01:28 PM by Canadian Woodworks | 1 comment »

I had a little fun with an idea I had to take some pictures of a recently completed project. This is a 3 tier walnut stand that is used to display product in a local store. I picked up a few cases of the types of product that would be displayed on the stand. I would take a picture then add a jar then take another picture, I used Quicktime 7 to make a video of the image sequence. I wish I would have taken a couple shots of each product by its self on the shelf, I think I could have played w...

Graham Nash Music Stand #2: Taking Shape

08-07-2011 05:59 AM by Blake | 17 comments »

This is the laminated adjustable section after the clamps came off: It gets run through the planer and its pretty much done: These are the two halves of the main lower section of the stand. The insides are routed out to receive the adjustable post which will slide inside the lower section. I removed most of the inside on the router table. Then I finished it by using a palm router with bottom clearing bit until the slots were the perfect size. Checking the fit with the two...

Graham Nash Music Stand #1: Claro Walnut Slab with a Story

08-05-2011 07:11 AM by Blake | 19 comments »

One of my relatives has a connection with musician Graham Nash. And although I have never actually met Nash, somehow I ended up with a beautiful slab of Claro Walnut from his old hot tub. Well, my dad is a guitarist and fan of all things Rock n’ Roll. And I have been planning to build him a music stand for several years now. So I figured since this piece of memorabilia fell into my lap, it was the perfect time to build him one. Here is the slab in the back of my truck: Its ...

Re-use, Renew, Recycle #1: Stereo/Entertainment Centre Stand

06-08-2011 09:52 PM by BritBoxmaker | 8 comments »

A little over 25 years ago I made a Stereo Racking Stand for my 80’s stereo separates. Its still in use today Its made of Pine veneered chipboard with softwood legs. A little while ago I scored a vintage Bang and Olufsen 80’s music centre (perched on top of the stand) from our local Freecycle ( web site where unwanted goods are placed, up for grabs, for FREE). Why? you may be asking yourselves. Well for it’s day it was top of the range. With remote control which all b...

Scroll sawing #2: Good News! I sold my old saw!

06-06-2011 02:54 AM by swamps42 | 7 comments »

I managed to sell my old scroll saw the same day Guy Pal put the down payment on the new saw. It’s a cheap Harbor Freight saw, but it comes with a decent supply of blades, the original box, the paperwork, and a sturdy stand. I good friend of mine pounced on it when I offered it to him at $45. This money will go directly into guy pal’s pocket to start paying off my new saw. I was going to put it on Craigslist for 50, but I do still have lots of fond feelings toward this saw. I made...
