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

DIY Tools | Woodworking #4: How to Set Up a Hand Plane before Shaving

12-10-2016 08:12 PM by Humus Workshop | 4 comments »

This is the story: after tinkering the plane I got so tired that at night I dreamed that I was at the beach using the plane like a mirror. So check out my dream come true here: https://youtu.be/eIzW6Nsi0aE The plane is a Stanley n5 with the sole and edges in a very poor condition. In addition, the blade holder (frog) was not flat so the blade did not work well. Although it’s a work that needs patience, believe me that you will have a happy ending and the difference is well worth ...

How do you dry wood?

12-09-2016 12:23 PM by monkeyman83 | 4 comments »

I will start with a little back story. At the end of September, I came into possession of two oak logs from a local tree service. The guys in the yard cut it up into sections for me so I could handle it myself. I then split each piece in half and rough turned a bowl blank from it. I ended up with 24 rough turned bowl blanks about 1 to 1.5 inches thick. This wood was extremely wet. The tree had just been cut down the week I took it. The bowls took me about 3 weeks to turn. These bowls ...

the tool tower fails

12-06-2016 04:13 PM by oldguy2 | 0 comments »

If you go to my home page and projects, I have a tool tower with pegboard sides and next to the router table.I think the original idea was taken from wood or some other shop organization ideas. They had a 2 ft by 2ft base with frame up to 8 feet and slide in trays for power tools. Pegboard sides gave more outside storage and casters made it mobile. I think they had a mobile base for storage and tool stand. So I modified a metal stand adding the top, it already had the casters and a botto...

Shop stuff #66: 2003 MIM Fender Stratocaster

12-03-2016 01:18 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I have quite the back log of footage. So I figure I will keep mixing it up and putting out different themed videos instead of concentrating on just the coffee table build (where I am sitting right now writing this). I have done a couple of guitars for this guy, so he must be OK with my work. This 2003 Strat was one he bought on Kijiji and sent it over to me to get it working the way he likes them. A bit of wiring, lots of cleaning, and a bunch of adjustments later and the guitar is just a...

Jigs and Tools #2: A Bee's Knees Wood Bender Thingy

11-29-2016 11:31 PM by GnarlyErik | 10 comments »

In a long career, I’ve used all sorts of rigs to bend wood, from steam boxes, steam jennies, wood boiling rigs, rosebud torches played on wet rags and heat guns. Some time ago I built myself a propane fired steam-box for bending things like boat frames and plank ends. But it is so big and gawky it mostly just serves as merely another shelf in my garage workshop. I’m on a kick building stringed musical instruments right now, which requires bending extreme curves in thin and narr...
