Your 1st Spoon #1: Make It Easy On Yourself

03-13-2009 01:38 AM by osageman | 3 comments »

You can contact me at osagemann@yahoo.com I’m not going to be able to write tomorrow so I am writting today. Now that you have your piece of wood picked out for your 1st spoon, let’s get started. I am sitting here with a cup of freshly made tea, with the wooden tea spoon that I made last night. I really liked this little spoon. I took my time (1 1/2 hours) making it. The grain is very nice and it is especially smooth and soft to the touch. SO, I decided to keep it…...

Inside Picture Framing #6: Hanging

12-03-2008 08:00 PM by kewald | 3 comments »

For best viewing, the center of the framed image should be approximately 63” above the floor. Any picture frame larger than 8” X 10” should be hung using two hooks. This reduces the torque on the frame and also prevents movement of the picture on the wall. If the wire on the frame is too tight to use two hooks then the frame should be re-wired. When wiring a frame, the wire should be long enough so that the angle between the wire attaching point and the nearest hooking position is app...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #8: Information on Porter Cable Scrollsaw

03-01-2011 03:40 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

As I posted, about a week ago, I was having problems with the lower clamp holding the blade (like plain end #2) on my Poter Cable Scrollsaw. After some discussion with Poter Cable they are sending me a whole new lower clamp assembly. However it is the same as the one I have and my fear is that it will not address the issue. You see the real problem is that the thumb screw is under the table and you need to reach around the left side to tighten the screw while holding the blade through the hol...

Sharpened the blades.

10-11-2012 02:27 AM by jumbojack | 3 comments »

My local Woodcraft offers a blade sharpening service. They job it out; a guy comes by every Wednesday and brings back sharp blades the following Wednesday. I had no idea how bad my blades were. They came back with plastic coating across the newly sharpened toofs. I pitched it on the ole Shopsmith and ran a piece of mahogany from the scrap bin through. Seriously, it was like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed at the cut quality. The saw made a completely different sound. Looking back the...

New Light and Fan Box

05-05-2009 07:59 PM by MauBow | 3 comments »

I had always been disappointed with my light setup at the lathe. Until recently I had a 4ft. fluorescent light with 2 T8 daylight bulbs directly above the lathe and 3 100watt equivalent low voltage bulbs mounted in clip on fixtures from HD. It was adequate but I was constantly moving the clip ons or they would just slip and need to be readjusted. Then I stumbled upon this picture I had saved on my work computer. I couldn’t remember where I had copied it from but then, while resea...

ScrollSaw Information and Resources #48: Enlarging PDF Files

04-12-2013 02:32 PM by jerrells | 3 comments »

I have a project that I am working on (to be posted in about a week) where I needed to enlarge a PDF pattern file. Have never done that before so I started out the very hard way. I would copy a section of the file, paste it into MS Publisher then draw some lines the right length and try to enlarge the pasted graphic to the size. Major problems were, time it took and the print were real fuzzy (pixel enlargement). Well after cutting the first several pieces I figured there had to be a better wa...
