Rediscovering my old hobby #1: Making old tools usable with no space!!

10-20-2014 01:29 PM by revrok | 2 comments »

I live in the urban San Francisco Bay Area in the smaller city of San Leandro between Oakland and Hayward in the East Bay. That means I have some advantages and some disadvantages when it comes to woodworking. The main advantage is the availability of free wood (hardwood pallets are everywhere and broken furniture on craigslist and curbsides) and good prices on old used tools. The main disadvantage for me is the cost of housing. Because of that I rent a two bedroom duplex with very little usa...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #1: HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization

08-18-2014 03:02 PM by Morton WoodWorks | 9 comments »

I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...

My BT3100 Table Saw Upgrades

08-07-2014 05:41 PM by JD13 | 4 comments »

Years ago when I just needed a cheap table saw for misc household projects, I bought a Ryobi BT3100 at Home Depot. At that time, it was cheap and was one of the nicer ones for the money. Now, years later, as I am getting back into woodworking, I need a good saw that will handle jigs and such. I know this is a divided topic – some LOVE it, some HATE. I own one and I’m still on the fence. It only had a miter slot on one side, doesn’t have a nice flat cast-iron bed and ...

iPhone Tripod Mount

07-31-2014 11:35 PM by iamcliff | 1 comment »

I recently made a mount for my iPhone that I could use with a tripod to record video. It was so simple to make and has worked so great that I decided to make a quick video showing how to make one. It’s stupid easy to make and really works great. So much better than trying to lean the phone up against something or using a quick-clamp to keep it in place. You can watch the video here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Df8crqSAQhQ

The Ever Evolving Workshop #1: New Delta Unisaw with 52" Rip, Incra TS-LS and LEFT Side Router Table!

07-03-2014 03:49 AM by emrhappy | 5 comments »

I wanted to show you guys and gals my new setup. I recently purchased a Delta 36-L352 to replace MY broke down POS grizzly G0715P. I say that about the grizzly because like many others MY G0715P had a .020 deflection in the back of the blade when I raised it up or down! There was no setting that saw blade parallel with the miter slot. Grizzly wouldn’t stand behind it and said the trunions were probably broke and that I had the ‘wrong saw’ for building cabinets or anyth...

Restoring my Great Grandfather's Table Saw ca. 1950s

06-23-2014 02:28 AM by wmixon | 7 comments »

Hi everyone, I have been a member on lumberjocks for only a few weeks…but have been a reader for a while. I have recently had the opportunity to rebuild my Great Grandfather’s 1950s era Craftsman 113.xx series table saw. What a journey of historical context and family memories this project was for me! The saw was given to me by my father when I expressed interest in setting up a work shop (I’m 28). While in working condition, it had much to be done and some improv...

My Beginning Days #4: Grizzly Tent Sale #1

05-20-2014 02:00 PM by Kaa162 | 8 comments »

I went to the Grizzly tent sale this weekend in PA. It was quite the experience. First, I spoke to a rep on the phone who suggested that I get there about an hour ahead of time… Try 2-3 hours. By the time we go there, there were at least 200 people in front of us. By the time the tent sale opened, the line was SUPER long. When the clock struck 8am, you have never witnessed a line move as fast as this one. We were so far back and yet it took seconds ...

Dust Collection #3: Table Saw - Rigid 3650

05-20-2014 03:34 AM by J Azuma | 3 comments »

This guy has been an ongoing battle for a while and I motivated again today to improve it. I had closed in the open contractor frame with a bunch of plywood screwed into place (not caulked or sealed), a slotted plate closed up the back, and I hooked up a shop vac to the port on the arbor assembly. I feel that this collected about 95% of the dust. My problem was that the remaining 5% was being shot out from the blade right into my face. A great article in Fine Woodworking by Richard Babbitt...

Craftsman 113 table saw upgrades.... #1: Not a true blog...

05-03-2014 01:57 AM by rhybeka | 13 comments »

I’m feeling a bit overwhelmed looking at all of the possible/plausible/necessary upgrades that I need/want to do to my table saw (and other tools but this one takes precedence). So I thought well… I should probably put them in some kind of order – not necessarily in any order – maybe somewhat necessity? As a newb, I just want to make sure my equipment is running as well and as safely as it possibly can. It’s already in great condition for it’s age and I&#...
