Craftsman Tablesaw "Restoration" #2: Fence is on!

11-06-2017 09:52 PM by HandyHousewife | 2 comments »

Last night we finally bit the bullet and installed the new fence. WAY easier than we expected, and if anyone plans to install one, any old wood+metal drill bit will drill through the cast iron with a bit of patience and a slow speed. We marked and punched the holes to keep the bit from wandering and then did each hole in 3 steps, because it worked better for us (and our bits may have been a bit dull.) Thankfully, we didn’t need to adjust the blade in relation to the miter slots, that so...

Walnut & Curly Maple Coffee Table #4: Shop made tenoning jig, legs machined

11-04-2017 03:28 PM by Reinan | 1 comment »

After considering my options on how to achieve the interlocking bridle joint with the aprons and legs, and realizing my 8” dado stack want going to have the depth necessary. I made up a quick tenoning jig from a scrap of plywood and some pieces of red oak. Ended up pretty decent and rode the fence fairly securely, not the smoothest but manageable. Joints came out well with the single blade though I need to clean up the bottom of the cut with a chisel before assembly. Aprons fit ...

Craftsman Tablesaw "Restoration" #1: Free is a 4 letter word

11-04-2017 12:53 AM by HandyHousewife | 3 comments »

A few months ago, my husband and I got a tablesaw (among other things) from an aunt that was clearing out after years of hoarding…I mean, collecting stuff at estate sales. We’d never had a tablesaw before, so we were pretty excited to get it, even knowing that it was far from in perfect condition. Even if it needed some work, it was still better than just having a skillsaw, right? Well, yes and no. ;-) After blowing out the motor, the first thing we did was ask on here a...

Shop stuff #108: Pencil box in walnut and maple

11-02-2017 09:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

A rainy day today and finally some time to edit video. This is a small pencil box I made for my daughter in law who is going back to school to learn how to help people. My first grand child was born to her 6 months ago and I wanted to make her something that was a bit more common in my time, yet still practical now. View on YouTube

Underway again...finally #1: Healed and starting over

10-28-2017 02:51 AM by JohnTM | 0 comments »

Well I finally healed up and am starting from scratch – again. I started by replacing my pallet buster with another design that doesn’t break or crack nearly as many boards as the first one did. The new one has longer and wider tines that seem to spread the strain/load on the cross members much better than the first one. I’ve also lucked into a location/business that puts out “quality” pallets on a weekly basis as well as some large plywood-and-2×4/4×...

my crosscut sled with only one fence

In this video, I try my best to explain the process that I used to make this crosscut sled, which I will only use when cutting miters.This is one of the most important jigs in the workshop, and would advise anyone who hasn’t made one, to put this on the To-Do list.https://youtu.be/ynZK8CQtXu4

Charging Station for my Cordless Tools

09-18-2017 02:48 PM by Thumper2004 | 0 comments »

So I started a while back in designing a new charging station/Tool Storage for my various cordless tools. I was able to continue work on this as I had already cut and assembled the hanger portions. There is still quite a bit to go so it may take a while with life happening. Thanks for checking it out. I can post plans for this if requested.
