Made from $12.00 worth of bronze bushings and a shaft collar. The shaft collar has a set screw that holds a 1/8” drill bit in place, so you would need to use 1/8” axles for your hinge pieces.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #43: Tool Tip - Simple Depth Gauge for Twist Bits

05-25-2015 11:53 AM by Paul Bucalo | 0 comments »

Yesterday, while working on the stake sides for my Harbor Freight trailer, I found myself in a need for a depth gauge for the drill bits I was using. I didn’t think to bring out a roll of painter’s tape and I was too into my work to get one from the dungeon. A solution that worked well for me: use your marking pencil to draw a heavy line across one of the twist bit’s flukes. The line will be quite visible as the bit spins. _ I have been busy with building a trailer...

Card Scraping #1: Finally some success

05-16-2015 01:21 AM by bbasiaga | 9 comments »

I posted a while back in the forums about card scraping. Mainly my interest was driven by the reduction/elimination of sanding from my finishing routine. I bought some card scrapers and a burnisher from Woodcraft, set about sharpening them/creating a burr via several different methods, and met with lots of mixed results. Well, finally I have had some success! Let me thank all of the LJs who responded to my thread and put me on to some very good YouTube videos of different techniques. The...

Shopsmith #3: My 1958 Shopsmith Mark V

05-06-2015 02:25 PM by GreaseMonkey2275 | 2 comments »

Monday May 4th I took my 1958 Shopsmith 3/4 horsepower motor down to the electrical motor shop and found out that I had a bad capacitor. However, after replacing the capacitor the motor still wouldn’t run and the guy at the repair shop recommended replacing the start-up relay. Being the mechanic that I am and having rebuilt starters before I figured there shouldn’t be too much of a difference between the contacts in this relay and the ones for the starter solenoid, except the si...
