SawStop or not? #4: Ugh--Evil SawStop, and an industry that you think loves you (but they really hate your fingers)

19 days ago by Rob | 19 comments »

By now everyone knows SawStop has evil lobbyists and lawyers trying to force their technology on us. Like many people, I was really wrapped up in this lobbying issue. For those who aren’t familiar with the effort, SawStop was trying to push through a government regulation that would require an advanced safety system like SawStop’s brake (oh, how convenient—SawStop makes those!) to be included on all new table saws. To-date such a feature has not been forced on anyone ...

SawStop or not? #3: The cheapest health insurance you can buy?

20 days ago by Rob | 5 comments »

In a recent thread about tool recommendations for a new shop, I made a comment that a SawStop saw is the cheapest health insurance you can buy. Most people don’t plan on cutting off their fingers on their table saws, and many woodworkers are quick to point out that the likelihood of any individual woodworker being seriously injured by a table saw on any given day is pretty slim. Frankly, I agree with both those comments and don’t intend to argue against them, but I do want to cl...

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

20 days ago 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...

Jewelry Case Build #9: Assembly and Hinges

26 days ago by RoadHogg | 2 comments »

Today I began assembly. Everything went really well. One small error I had to fix, Once the glue was dry, I noticed the little drawers were slightly proud of the side panel. This would prevent the door from closing. I just took out each drawer and sanded a bit off the face. They fit fine now. I had to chisel out eight tiny hinge mortises. I’ve also never done those before. They turned out quite nice. I only have to do a final fit on the doors and screw them into place then ...

Jewelry Case Build #8: Glass and Mirrors

28 days ago by RoadHogg | 0 comments »

Among the new skills I’ve learned in this project, I learned the basics behind cutting glass. This project has two glass panel doors, one glass panel side and two mirrors, set into frames. To my surprise and delight, cutting glass is really quite easy. I won’t go into that detail here but suffice to say if you are thinking about cutting your own glass, do it! Once I cut all the glass and mirrors, I epoxied them into the frames. The mirrors were easy as the backs aren’...

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

30 days ago 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...

Jewelry Case Build #6: Tiny Drawers, Tiny Rabbets, Tiny Dados!

33 days ago by RoadHogg | 1 comment »

Continuing with the tiny drawers, of which there are six, I constructed a little “cabinet” for them to sit in. They basically just sit on little shelves, negating the need for slides etc, which in this case, are not at all practical due to the size of this case. Nothing rocket science here, just fiddling with 12 little drawer fronts/backs and 12 little drawer sides. All 24 pieces got a small rabbet in the bottom edge and the sides each got rabbets in the ends where they will m...
