I’m making progress, slowly but surely, on the twin storage beds. To help cut some of the plywood parts to size, I took the time to make a couple of jigs, using some great ideas I’ve seen here on LJ. The first is the cutoff sled for table saw. I had one previously, but I was never happy with it’s accuracy, and I had to fiddle with the brass screws in the side of the runner to keep the fit adjusted to the miter track. So I started over, beginning with a piece of 3/4...
I’m frequently asked, “What does it actually cost to make a pen?” (Mostly at arts and craft shows I am attending or participating in.) (I keep a copy at all art shows now) Here’s the list of items that I use to make a pen. The good news is that after the first pen you make they become much less expensive. Some of these items can be eliminated or something else can be substituted for what is listed. If you already have a table saw, or band saw, a drill press or other items the initial ...
The mobile workstation is in my opinion going to be the center of my workshop once its built. An integrated router table, table saw, downdraft table and ample storage in a ~ 5’ x 2’ area on wheels! Certainly not my idea, however, the layout will be done solely by me. I am open to all suggestions though, so please feel free to brainstorm here and let me know what has worked for you, what you would do differently if you had to build one again, etc. All comments and suggestions are w...
Can I get a free SawStop? #1: I think I have an idea so that all of us woodworkers can get a free Saw-Stop!!
What do you all think of this? If collage girls now will be able to get $3000.00 over 3 years for birth control protection, under Obama Care, the reasoning being that this is cheaper for all the rest of us tax payers than for the girl getting pergnet for having her social fun; and what is the cost for the rest of her socially fun life, then how much more cheaper is it for the tax payers to pay for a Saw-Stop table saw, about $3000.00, for all woodworkers so that the woodworkers can have safe...
Long Story Short – Fingers are too valuable and I’m too inexperienced to NOT get a sawstop (I am a capitalist myself anyway). I sold my Ridgid granite-topped saw and bought a Sawstop 1.75 Professional Cabinet Model. Here it is arriving home for the first time: And Resting unopened comfortably. I probably won’t unpack it for a few weeks as I’ll be studying a good for an upcoming exam.
Subject: Ridgid R4511 Table Saw Height Adjustment Handle Jammed- I was wondering if anyone has had a problem with lowering or raising the blade? What happened to me today was rather strange because this saw is almost new. In the middle of working with it, I has set the blade at it highest point. It got stuck there because the handle would not turn, and not a piece of wood jamming it. Eventually i got it to turn, but with much care because the handle is made of thin cast aluminum. Plus i did...
Hello,I picked up a Wadkin Bursgreen AGS10 10” Table Saw for 400 dollars today, an excellent deal. As you can see from the pictures, it isn’t in perfect condition but that will soon be changed. My goal is to make the saw look just as good as when it rolled off the factory floor. It will take a lot of work, but it’ll be worth it. This saw will be my family heirloom.The quality of this saw is amazing. On the upper part of the base, the cast iron is 5...
This is my first box with miters on the corners. I’ve built several boxes before, but always just but-joint and nailed them. Sounds primitive but that is the look I was going for at the time. Here’s all the pieces laid out for assembly: And then here is is clamped up I’ll be using this to do Victorian Era Impressions, so I put appropriate hardware on it. I had made a groove on the inside of the box before I glued it together to aid in cutting off ...
Here’s my final version that I came up with after doing the over-thought version. I began with one that had an adjustable stop and all that but I gave it away. I like this one the best. When building it, use only glue, no metal fasteners. Dowels work if you feel you need them. The bottom plywood is not really needed but I had already built it that way. The next one prob. won’t have it. The backer board(bright blue) is just double-stick-taped in place. Square might work better and ...
INTROFor Christmas, my bro and I gave my dad the above mentioned fence as a gift. I had read in a few places that people had successfully (albeit blasphemy) mounted this fence to a G1022Z. I had my reservations, but after looking at the equivalent Shop Fox and Vega models (waaay more expensive), we decided to pull the trigger and get one from a well-respected buyer on ebay. At the same time, ebay was running a ‘fast and free’ shipping promotion. I ordered the fence on a Tuesday an...
