Well I just got an Old Rockwell tablesaw on Friday night and am about to start checking it out.The name on the front of saw says 10” Tilting Arbor Saw but I haven’t found a Manual or parts guide that matches it 100% yet but I did find one for the 10” Contractors Saw that the Manual is pretty close to the same as this saw but the parts list I found is way off.First pic is the basic setup of the saw as I got it into the Apt. , note the motor is laying on the base since it wou...
Hey all. First, thanks a lot to oluf who gave me a tip on how to use silicone instead of spaceballs to keep the panels form rattling. Secondly, this is going to be a long one, so bare with me if interested, if not, no big deal. :) Raised panel doors are very rare in Europe, so I will have a very posh kitchen when it’s all said and done, so I am very glad. The door with flat inset panels (as classic Euro doors are) looks plain crap when compared to the raised panel one, I know that, s...
(Note: This blog is the most current, as of November 16. It should be #8.)* Hello winter. We have snow on the ground but nothing like to the north in Wisconsin. Still, timing is everything. I have spent the time between my last blog and now racing the weather to complete the bench and get shop ready for the car to come back. If I had one of those little compacts this would be no big deal, likewise a large garage. But the car is a Durango and the shop is only 18×20. And my pl...
Creating the front legs for a black walnut maloof rocker https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e6RpZktuUWc&feature=youtu.be
I finally past that stinking kidney stone. I was out of work for 2 weeks because of this thing. I passed it Friday afternoon, so now I feel pretty normal now. It just aches now, the pain is manageable. I imagine that it will take a few more days to feel completely better. Anyhow, after 2 weeks off, I was able to get in the shop today and do a bit of work. (Admittedly, I tried while I was off work because I was bored out of my mind, but I could only stand for about 20 minutes, so that ...
After all the time I have put into refurbishing this saw, after all the gross and fine adjustments made, at the end of it all the saw is unusable. How bad is it? A 90 degree miter cut of a 1/2” thick piece of hardwood only a few inches deep leaves at least one stepped kerf in cut and on both axis the cut is not square. You can smell wood burning and see the practically new blade struggle to get through the cut. A rip cut leaves sporadically located kerf marks along the cut edges on both...
Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #18: Zero Clearance Insert, Hard Wood Fence Rail, Chisel Sharpening
My day started at 4:30 am, way too early for getting to bed shortly before midnight. I blame this flu I can’t get rid of and a lot of heavy dreaming. And yet, I had one of the most productive days in the past week. Most of the afternoon was spent sharpening chisels, mounting a wood fence rail and creating a zero-clearance insert for the Delta 36-510 Bench Saw. Here are some pics of what I accomplished. The ChiselsThe chisel sharpening took up a good portion of the day. It was my firs...
Sometimes, I have to laugh at myself. For several days I have been contemplating the best way to add mobility to the Router Table Base I created, which now also acts as a Table Saw Base for the Delta 36-510. I’ve watched numerous YouTube videos showing all sorts of simple to ingeniously complex Lazy-Boy lever systems. For this project, ‘better’ translates to ‘cheap’, ‘using materials I already have’, and ‘taking the least amount of time to cr...
Hello All, I began a Youtube account to show the stages in making windsor style chairs – starting from a tree. I invite you all to come have a look. I have about 40 minutes of footage, and will add videos as my progress with the chair goes. Enjoy! https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLjcQyPlmR1Lx2mnX0Upkm8E-QruOXv2gC
So I used 2×1 poplar to frame out where I will house the router.. I will be using 3/4 MDF .. That’s next I will need to custom cut the MDF to fit and I’m just praying that I put the frame pieces in the right place so support the MDF and that it also looks symmetrical as Dara’s where the drawers will be going on the sides!
