Wixey Saw Fence Model WR700 #1: Problems - Sigh

02-17-2008 08:50 PM by sIKE | 5 comments »

Got one for my birthday yesterday, I really have been wanting one of these. I got out late this morning and started installing the product. I even setup to do my first review/blog including, some shop clean up :) and pics of it going in for us LJs. I didn’t get far, as it is missing one of the Sensor Strips. I am packing up the kiddo and heading to Woodcraft for an exchange (I hope!).

First Table Saw

02-17-2008 04:34 PM by Huckleberry | 15 comments »

Ok jocks, I am in the market for a new table saw or should I say my first table saw. I was looking at the Powermatic 1 1/2 hp contractor saw. I was at my local Woodcraft and got into a really good conversation with a fellow wood worker who happens to work there. We were talking about this saw and then he tries to up sell me on a steel city 3hp table saw. Now the pros and cons of each have been weighed heavily and there is about a $400 to $500 difference between the two. Now with this big...

"wild cherry sideboard"

02-13-2008 04:28 PM by cowboy | 2 comments »

Several people have asked a few questions so I thought I’s tell a little about this piece.This was a spec piece that I wanted to take to a show.The cherry came from a board I selected from a pile of 1,000 bd ft of curly cherry and was obviously one of the wowie,zowie boards.It’s obviously a version of a very old design tha’s been around for years.Truthfully I don’t do that anymore as I only use my own designs and have gotten into a different type of thing,yet similiar....

First of all I want to thank people for the kind words concernign this piece.Since there has been several questions about it I thought I’d take this time to talk about it.This piece has an interesting story about how it came to be.I had just finished a really large piece,very involved,very over the top(I’m lookin for a picture now),and wanted a break from the large project and gave myself a self imposed design project,build and design something with this small amount of wood that...

Hall Table #1: A little catch up

02-09-2008 01:30 AM by shawnseanderson | 0 comments »

I thought that I would take a little time to show how we went about the construction of the hall table. This project is currently in the final stages but I can backtrack a little for the sake of discussion. Check back a little later and I will update with some pictures. We started the table off at the lumber store. (almost my favorite place to be) We spent a good deal of time trying to decide what wood that we wanted to use and finally settled on Mahogany. We had some concern about the col...

The Ancient China frame - How I did it.

02-01-2008 05:09 PM by grovemadman | 3 comments »

The frame is easy to make out of pine, fir or any soft wood. We want to make it look precision yet old at the same time. The hardest part is convincing the sun to age your project for you 2000 years in about a few days time. The sun owed me for a few sunburns soooo… Just kidding, we’ll get to the aging part later.I remembered a frame I had seen at the museum in grade school. I jumped in my truck that weekend and went to the museum to look at ancient lacquered furniture. I took not...

Delta Unisaw #3: Not so lucky with the age of the saw

02-01-2008 12:56 AM by Kevin | 2 comments »

I have been suspecting that the guy I bought my saw from did not really know how old it was. The saw was his father-in-laws and he got it when his father-in-law passed away. He said that he knows the dust collector was bought less than two years ago and he thought the saw was bought at the same time. If so, then it wasn’t bought new. I was afraid the saw was older because of the condition of the table top & fence and the fact that the motor cover was metal and not plastic. Once I...

Which Tool Would You Buy???

01-30-2008 09:25 AM by Brad | 10 comments »

My birthday is coming up and I’ve told everyone nothing but money because I want to get some new tools. I’m guessing all in all I’ll have around $500 to spend. I’m considering a band saw, 13” planer, biscuit jointer or a new router/plunge router combo. So what do you guys think??? Which is going to give me the best advance in shop versatility?

Delta Unisaw #1: Cleaned up and trying to decide if I should keep it.

01-27-2008 07:27 AM by Kevin | 15 comments »

I have decided to put all of this into a blog instead of the forums. Here is a link to the previous forums. Should I buy this Unisaw? http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1877 Unisaw Advice Needed? http://lumberjocks.com/topics/1989 Well, I finally got pictures of it. I wish I had pictures from before working on it. I have spent a lot of time trying to clean up the cast iron top. I tried to get pictures that show what it looks like, but it is hard to capture. I picked up a new tape for the ...
