Shop stuff #58: Track for a circular saw

09-25-2016 11:37 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I needed a track saw to cut a slab to make a coffee table. So I made one. This is how I did mine. By using the table saw to cut a dado in the base, the track is as accurate as a table saw. View on YouTube

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #9: Still plodding along

09-19-2016 03:41 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

Once again with weather and other commitments I haven’t made a lot of progress. Also the fact that I’ve been devoting the time I have worked on this on the router end has slowed me down. Over the last few weeks I got the opening for the router plate and the miter track cut out, got the router, plate, and track mounted. It didn’t take too long to get that done. The rest though has been chewing up much more time than I anticipated. Other than a large bottom drawer to hold rout...

Making an Aluminum, LDPE, and Oak Mallet

09-12-2016 03:26 AM by beahan | 1 comment »

This mallet was fun to build! It was 3 completely different processes to make each part of it. This was also my first time working with plastic (LDPE) as a medium. I have absolutely no practical use for this thing… I just thought about it one day and it sounded like fun to make! View on YouTube

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #3: Face Plate Clean Up

09-04-2016 01:44 PM by inghamworkshop | 0 comments »

I had to come to terms with not being able to restore this piece an keep the original finish, there was just to much corrosion. I used a progression of wet/dry sandpaper starting at 320g an working my way up to 2000g. It came out pretty good and I’ll probably follow this up with some sort of aluminum buffing compound and a buffing wheel.

Inline Industries Pulleys and Craftsman Contractor saw

09-02-2016 08:35 PM by CLowery15 | 0 comments »

Good evening, I just purchased and received my In-Line Industries table saw pulleys and belt for my craftsman table saw. Did anyone have problems getting the Arbor pulley on the entire way? It is tightened down with the allen screw, so it is secure. Maybe has about 1/8” to 3/16” left. I don’t want to use a scrap piece of wood and a hammer for fear of damaging the shaft and bearings. Any advice? ThanksCraig

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #2: 113.29990 Cleaning Face Plate

08-31-2016 02:07 AM by inghamworkshop | 2 comments »

I’m looking for som help and guidance here. I decided to try and tackle the cleaning of the silver plate on the front of the saw, which I believe is aluminum, and I’m hoping someone more knowledgeable than me can help. Here’s what I started with: My initial thought was to use water, mild soap and a nylon bristle brush. That did clean a good portion of the large easy to get stuff, but it’s left me with this. I don’t want to do something that I can&#...

Craftsman Saw Rebuild #1: Intro and Gameplan!

08-28-2016 01:21 PM by inghamworkshop | 3 comments »

Hello everyone, it’s both my first post to the site and my first ever blog post all in one. I’ve been browsing the site for a few weeks now because I’ve been on the market for a new table saw and sort of fell in love with the idea of rebuilding a Craftsman 113. Well after contacting a couple of people through my local Craigslist, today I went out and picked up not just one but two table saws. The first saw I found and actually had a friend go and take a look at for me...

Building a Standup Desk

08-26-2016 02:34 AM by beahan | 0 comments »

I was asked to build two standup desks for two coworkers. They already have desks provided and therefore wanted something that could just be placed on top of what they currently have. I designed a two tier desk extension and they really liked it. Here is the build video for those who are interested: View on YouTube

Yet Another Craftsman 113 Saw Blog #8: A little further

08-01-2016 08:12 PM by jonlruss | 0 comments »

After not being able to get any work on my workstation done the previous two weekends, I finally got to spend some time on it this past weekend. There wasn’t huge progress, but it was a step forward. I got the saw actually attached to the base finally, and installed the router table extension. I also got the sides for the drawer that goes under the saw cut and painted. I also installed the slides for it to the case. I plan on making a fence for the router that will attach to the saw ...

Practicum #1: Practicum: Application of Skills

07-24-2016 05:01 AM by CraftyCantrell | 0 comments »

I’m switching up my original plan of doing all the lessons in the self-study course back-to-back, and am instead alternating with projects from Power Tool Woodworking for Everyone that utilize previously learned/practiced skills and techniques. The first batch of projects are: 1. An adjustable miter gauge extension 2. A miter guage with sliding stop block 3. An adustable stop block 4. A tapering jig All of these use primarily the skills/techniques I learned last week. C...
