Stenciling Dado Chippers

01-17-2017 04:12 PM by SlickTX | 1 comment »

I recently researched upgrade options for my entry-level Avenger dado set. I opted for the Freud SD508 8” Super Dado set. One of the minor complaints about this dado set was the fact that the chippers are not labeled with their sizes. I thought I could fix that and my first idea was to etch them as I had etched other metals in the past. It turned out that I couldn’t do that because of the coating that Freud puts on the blades and chippers. What to do? I then ...

Hints and Tips #26: To the last drop

01-08-2017 03:03 AM by Dave Rutan | 3 comments »

This is a tip that I got from the pooroldchap YouTube channel [link]. He posts what he terms Workshop Waffles where he talks about things in his workshop. If you use WD-40 or a similar aerosol propelled lubrication oil this may help you save a few cents. I took an old metal oil can that once contained sewing machine oil. I’m not sure if anything like this can still be purchased or if they’ve all gone over to plastic. A plastic bottle may be usable, but you’ll need a t...

The Ultimate Vice Jaws

01-07-2017 10:46 PM by ShaunMeighan | 4 comments »

Hi all! I’ve recently made myself a set of jaws for my engineering vice to make it more usable for woodworking. These jaws increase the surface area contacting the workpiece and adds pieces of leather for extra grip. I’m very happy with how they turned out and would love to know what you think of them!

Wooden Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 #1: Google Sketchup and Design

01-05-2017 10:28 PM by TObenhuber | 0 comments »

Alaskan Chainsaw Mill V2.0 is going to be a follow on to the review I posted around this time last year. It seems to have been fairly liked considering it now shows up on Google within the first page of search results. Just type in “Chainsaw Mill” into Google and you will see it within a scroll or two. I’ll thank you all on Lumberjocks for that. Note: some of the images are large but if you right click on them and “Open image in new tab.” You will be able to see...

Super Gripper Pusher Simplified

12-26-2016 02:20 AM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 1 comment »

Hi Guys, Today I wanted to present you with the simplified version of a Gripper I made earlier I used plexiglass for the frame because it is strong, light and less bulky than plywood The rest of the Gripper is made of Baltic birch plywood I used the sticky anti-skid strips for the legs (homedepot)And made a simple eccentric wheel to act as a balancing plate on the original grr-ripper You can see the details and dimensions in this 3.5 min video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=D...

Grizzly G0555 #1: Drive Wheel Bearing Replacement

12-23-2016 02:23 PM by Jim Jakosh | 11 comments »

My Grizzly 14” band saw has been making a clunking noise when running for a while now so while the shop is down I decided to take a look at it. With the blade removed, I could hear a “lump,lump, lump” noise when turning the bottom drive wheel and then I could feel vertical movement in it. That meant the bearing is shot! I removed both screws in the front and real of the main shaft. Then I made the mistake of removing the 3 screws to unfasten the pulley and put a puller...

Daves Workshop #4: Drill Master 68287 18v drill vs 3/4" auger bit and pine 2x4. Who will win?

12-22-2016 04:27 AM by dbhost | 0 comments »

Okay for this demo / test I put a full charge on the Drill Master 68287 18v 3/8” cordless drill, and threw my most common auger bit size at it, my 3/4” Irwin SpeedBor auger bit. (The one I use for boring 3/4” holes in tree stumps for using Stump Rot). Is this drill up to this fairly simple and common task? Watch for yourself and find out! View on YouTube

Daves Workshop #3: Using a cheap Harbor Freight riveter for awesome dust collection ductwork joints.

12-20-2016 03:01 AM by dbhost | 7 comments »

If you, like me have been putting your dust collection system together with screws, STOP IT, those screws stick into the duct work and can snag stringy stuff and clog things up for you. Not a good thing. In this video I show you a great, serviceable alternative to screws. View on YouTube
