1178 days ago by WayneC | 48 comments »

In Feburary 2011, I broke my right leg and ended up having to deal with an extend stay in the hospital and time away from work. I was given an eReader as a get well gift and have been using it to kill the time. One of the things I found is that many classic woodworking books are available in electronic format for free. Many of these come from Google Books. You can read these books on-line using your web browser and down load them to your computer and save them there if you like. If yo...

Wood Magazine has a review of it as well as a video of it in action. Two weeks ago when I was on my way home from the bay area I stopped ...

Cutlist4.1 #4: Listing by Sub-Assembly...finally

1455 days ago by daltxguy | 40 comments »

Often requested and finally here! I’ve finally changed the Sketchup cutlist4.1 plugin to show the partslist by sub-assembly based on the nested components in your model. I’ve uploaded cutlist4.1.0.6pre You’re really going to want to delete the old version completely before installing this version because the structure of the plugin has changed completely. The ruby script is now called ‘cutlist.rb’ and it’s really just a stub with all of the main code...

Dust Collection #3: Fine!....... particles that is

1700 days ago by PurpLev | 32 comments »

After many months in the planning, designing, and reding on other peoples builds of air cleaners, the day before Thanksgiving I came upon an ad on craigslist of a JDS Air-Tech 2000 Model 750. I figured that if I was to build one – it would end up costing about as much as the JDS model, but will not have the same filtration quality, it’ll be heavier (wood construction as opposed to metal frame), and it’ll take me time to build it. time that could be used to build woodworking ...
