Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #10: Long and tedious.......

11-04-2010 06:42 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 5 comments »

It’s been a while, too long in fact since updating. I don’t have pictures with this one, so I must go ahead and apologize for that. I want to take this time to thank ajosephg for his document on making an old saw do new tricks. His insight was much needed, and is the reason my saw is not scrap metal right now. Also, this helped me fix the wobble in my arbor… I noticed three problems while working on the alignment of my saw. First, the blade alignment was never quite...

Wolf's Tooth Banding...a Two for One

11-02-2010 09:03 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

“It’s the repetition of affirmations that leads to belief. And once that belief becomes a deep conviction, things begin to happen.” .....Muhammad Ali, Heavyweight boxing champ…1942 - One of the benefits of creating “Wolf’s Tooth” wood inlay bandings is that you actually get two bandings for the effort of one. What do I mean by this? When the initial cuts from the laminated stock are made on the table saw using the dedicated miter saw we flip th...

Wolf's Tooth...a Decorative Wood Inlay Banding

10-31-2010 11:25 PM by Bob Simmons | 3 comments »

Pleasure in the job puts perfection in the work......Aristotle, Greek Philosopher (384 BC – 322 BC) The “Wolf’s Tooth” decorative wood inlay pattern is a wonderful custom inlay used to embellish furniture, picture frames, wooden boxes, and a host of other woodworking projects. The wooden segments (teeth) were cut on the table saw equipped with a Forrest Woodworker II 40 tooth saw blade. Also, the dedicated miter sled was used in order to maintain precision and t...

Hardwood Inlays made in the Woodworking Shop

10-29-2010 08:46 PM by Bob Simmons | 2 comments »

“Whether you think that you can, or that you can’t, you are usually right.” ...Henry Ford (1863-1947) As we near the holidays it’s time to start planning ahead for gifts that will be made in the woodworking shop. In the picture you can see many wood segments that have been cut on the dedicated miter sled for the table saw. It’s quite important that the angles of the segments are consistent so that they line up tightly within the decorative wood pattern. H...

Building My Work Shop #4: So it's Decided

10-27-2010 06:02 AM by Crushgroovin | 11 comments »

Well I slept on it and talked about it with some friends. I am going to go with a Sawstop! Thanks to everyone who took a minute to add some insight. So now I get to start selling stuff on eBay and saving up for the big purchase. Only decision left is which model to go with. I have narrowed it down the the 1.75 HP Cabinet or the 3.0 HP cabinet. There is about a $600 difference between the two. Just not convinced I need a 3 HP saw. While I do bog down at times when using my Shopsmith, ...

Building My Work Shop #3: A Nice, but difficult Dilemma

10-26-2010 08:10 AM by Crushgroovin | 7 comments »

So after months of being flat ass broke we have finally resolved and outstanding issue which has resulted in a cash settlement. After meeting our savings goals and other critical items I have a little bit to spend on my workshop. So my dilemma is what to do with it. I originally had been set selling the old Incra Ultra I bought and replacing it with the LS Super System. I like the new design and the Wonder Fence is exactly what I need, oh ok exactly what I want. I don’t have a jointe...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #9: How the Incra screwed up my table saw.....

10-26-2010 06:15 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 5 comments »

HAHA, got your attention. No, the Incra didn’t REALLY screw up my table saw, it just created a new hurdle to overcome. (Note here this will be set-back/screw up number five.) I have an Incra TS-LS 32 that is probably the best investment I have in my shop. If Incra made a circular saw fence, I would own it too. (Might not need a table saw if they did that.) But, this entry is not to praise the Incra, it is to scold the Incra, and all of it’s micro-adjustable goodness. So,...

Live in the shop...Creating bandings for Wood Inlay

10-24-2010 07:44 PM by Bob Simmons | 9 comments »

Today we are creating bandings from scratch. We’ve got some ideas for the wood inlay designs so we are ripping on the table saw, sanding on the drum sander, and gluing. At some point we will cut banding segments on the dedicated miter saw and then gluing some more. Plus we will be doing a bit of video shoots for the next release. Feel free to stop by. visit…The Apprentice and The Journeyman ...........Learn more, Experience more!
