I love my Bosch Glide mitre saw. It is a wonderful piece of machinery. If you have been following along though, you will realize that it does have some short comings. One of them is the dust chute. Here I do a simple job, with a reclaimed inner tube from a wheel barrow, to improve it a bit. It is still not perfect, but it is a lot better. I suppose that having the vacuum or a dust collector hooked up would improve it more, but I do not have the power to the shop yet, so we will have to...
A variety of woodworking trades require the use of some sort of tapered reamer…. Stringed musical instruments have tapered peg holes, or woodwinds with tapered holes running the length. Windsor Chairs and spinning wheels are often put together with tapered joints. And barrels have tapered holes for both the bung and the tap. I’m currently repairing yet another spinning wheel, almost done: All of it’s joints are tapered round tenons in tapered holes. you mi...
I am always on the lookout for tools that I need (and always looking for tools I don’t need). But we all know that everything is so damn expensive these days. I have 4 kids so I can’t afford to run out and buy all my tools new. I try and hit yard sales, garage sales and salvage stores when I can. Most of the tools guys like us use are outdated junk to everyone else. The average homeowner owns a compound miter saw nowadays and wouldn’t know which end of a hand saw cuts the wo...

The last time I used my band saw it started acting up. I had a hard time steering the cut, but I got through it. It was just a band saw box. Today I discovered what the problem was. For whatever reason, perhaps my wheel tilting adjustment is loose, the blade was not between the guide blocks. It’s just a, 1/8 inch blade, so there’s not much fudge room. It wasn’t the saw, it was my set up! So if your band saw blade is wandering around, check your guide blocks! [Fun ...
I thought I would try something different for bit storage this time. I grabbed one of those magnetic tool holders from Harbor Freight, cut a bunch of V-grooves into it with the bench grinder and bam, instant Forstner bit rack. What do you guys think?Enjoy! Magnetic Forstner Bit Storage
Have you ever had a project the needs little feet to get it off the table, but you only have wine corks? This happened to me recently, so I cut the corks into about 1/2 inch slices with my mini miter box and glued one in each corner of the project. To be sure they were level I rubbed the installed feet on a sheet of course sandpaper fixed to my flat work bench. Instant cork feet.
I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.
