Dust Collection on Grizzly 0690 Table Saw

12-05-2011 01:47 AM by indianawoodbutcher | 6 comments »

I just received my new Table Saw from Grizzly this week. I love the power and the price. So far, the only thing I don’t like is the dust collection. It has a built in dust port, but it doesn’t seem like much gets to the port. After quite a bit of cutting, I found the bottom of the saw held about 3 inches of dust. I used the same dust collector on my old Craftsman that I had to rig with a dust port. It is gobbled up everything the blade could make. Does anyone else out there ...

Built in E-center, Yala #3: It is finished!

12-03-2011 03:13 PM by topcat | 3 comments »

I haven’t done one of these in a while. The build was a bit excruciating. Took 6 days, about 10-12 hrs. per day. Started on the Thurs. before Thanksgiving. That was an easy day. I just ran around getting all of the materials together and did some initial layout work and rough cut the plywood sides. These were full height and were too awkward to move around, so I used a straight edge and my new PC 8902 router to get the edges of the plywood ready for the face frames. Once the first side ...

Workshop Progress #2: Workshop Progress #2

12-02-2011 12:23 AM by WRAAdesign | 1 comment »

As I am working on this transformation, I am discovering just how small of a space I have to work with for my new workshop. This has forced me to look for additional space saving resolutions. The tool cubby is complete. It isn’t much to look at from a craftsmanship perspective, but it fits the bill for storing my power tools. These images also show the progress on my wood storage rack and work table. As you can see, budget is one of the main drivers here. The cabinet that I mounted abov...

Making a Condiment Tote (for beginners) #3: Finishing the inside

12-01-2011 05:31 AM by ~Julie~ | 2 comments »

Now that the sides, ends and bottom are cut I stain them, on the insides only, before putting the box of the tote together. It’s much easier to stain before glueing because trying to reach your hand inside a box and stain it is very difficult. With pine, I use flecto Varathane’s Gel Stain. It does not require any undercoating and always give me a streak-proof finish. Not all stains work well on pine but I have had great success with this. I rub it on with a piece of old t-s...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #13: After much delay and empty promises, it draws to an end.

11-30-2011 05:31 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 7 comments »

Well, the table saw / router workstation are finished. (At least as finished as I care to make them.) Have a look here..... There is a good bit of blood sweat and tears in that project. Actually no, more like beer, planning and a lot of good days working with my hands…. Notice that Babycake wants to demonstrate how easy the dust collection works by flipping a simple switch….. On the front of the unit, the fixed faceplates for switches (minus the one for the key...

Chasing accomplishments...... #3: A bit of reflection on a long year....

11-29-2011 06:51 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 5 comments »

To start off, I am constantly reflecting on the passing of my brother in law several months ago…. On July 26, 2011 my brother in law lost his third battle with leukemia. I want to thank everyone for their prayers through that time. This has been a long sad year for myself and my wife’s family. My brother in law was just like a brother to me, we didn’t see eye to eye on everything, but he would come running anytime I would call, no questions asked. Even if it killed hi...
