Workshop 2016 #2: Christmas blessings.

01-11-2016 12:59 AM by Ty Sullivan | 4 comments »

Christmas 2015 was one that held many changes for me and inherently for my woodworking too. In the past my family has been pretty diligent in purchasing tools for me of all sorts and has filled in the gaps of those items that are required for pushing my skills upwards. However, the larger sized powertools have always been slightly out of reach for me by way of monetary limitations or just that my family didn’t feel comfortable making a purchase that requires a lot of knowledge. I.E. h...

Shop Upgrades #4: Band Saw Assembly

12-31-2015 01:15 AM by bkseitz | 0 comments »

Started assembling my Craftsman 14” Band Saw today. Aside from a broken minor plastic part discovered during unpacking everything seems to be going together easily. Instructions are reasonably laid out. A few items I would have worded differently and added better illustrations. Left assembly in process for tonight. Still have table to bolt to trunnion and tune the saw. Not the fanciest saw on the block, but I think it will do as a starter or possibly for several years if my need...

Shop Built Belt Sander Project #4: Finishing the Sander with Dust Collection

12-01-2015 11:57 PM by Lazyman | 4 comments »

I finally got around to posting the completion of the sanding platform with dust collection. Dust collection is working very well with just a shop vac. The platform pivots out of the way for belt changes while in either the horizontal or vertical positions though you have to move the sander to the edge of the bench so it can swing out of the way. I need to add 2 more feet to make it more stable in this position. By swinging the platform out of the way while in the horizontal po...

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #50: Hitachi C10FL Acquisition

08-12-2015 02:56 PM by Paul Bucalo | 12 comments »

Last week I picked up a decent deal on a table saw that will be a marked improvement over the one I have in the dungeon workshop right now. It’s a Hitachi C10FL that a widow’s husband bought back in 2009. For those not familiar with the make and model, here is a manufacturer’s marketing image of the machine: The chassis and legs on my acquisition look almost like brand new. The cast iron top is in need of some TLC and the accessory rails need a good cleaning. When I f...

First attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool

08-11-2015 05:08 PM by casecx700 | 2 comments »

This is my first attempt at making a carbide tipped lathe tool, the handle is made of oak and ash cut and glued at a 45 degree angle and doweled for added strength. The metal part that holds the cutter is made of a piece of .5 inch round rod that I purchased from home depot and tapped a #8 32TPI thread into to accommodate the easy wood tool cutter. Currently I am waiting on the epoxy to set up so I can finish it up tomorrow hopefully. I am planning on finishing with Boiled linseed oil.

Building Big Blue, a Home Made Wood Lathe

07-29-2015 02:34 PM by woodshopmike | 4 comments »

Some of y’all may remember the post a few years ago about the wood lathe I built. I’ve been meaning to write about the “how & why” of this project for some time and I finally got around to it! I talk about the motivation to build my own lathe, the expenses, design process, & of course building the lathe in addition to other things. Per the norm, the post can be found on my blog. I hope you enjoy the read!

It Starts With a Workbench #2: Fuss over tools and the first project

06-29-2015 10:40 PM by DocTux | 7 comments »

Step 1, now we’re really starting on our journey into woodworking. This is when I go, “Oh man. Power tools are super expensive, I think I’ll just stick to hand tools. Plus, that sounds incredibly fun and like a good opportunity to truly challenge myself.” Can you tell that I’m a newbie? What did I even get myself into. Well that was a comforting thought UNTIL I looked at the price of quality hand tools and the true difference between shoddy ones and good ones....

My Gringo Workshop Project #3: part 2.5

06-29-2015 11:44 AM by thegringoww | 0 comments »

Why am I writing part 2.5 as opposed to part 3? Well,I wanted to take some time to point out several things that I may have insinuated and update some points. The article was not written to point out the mistakes of the fine woodworking, but to illustrate the inaccuracy of information. When the press writes up the information without writing about the complete picture, I am in no way trying to point a finger and yell ”Lk!”, but to say, why only show a glass half full? I simply became i...
