Well kids, It’s been a long time in the making but this weekend I’m off to the Grizzly Woodworking Store in Muncy, PA. I’ve been there once before, and I gotta tell you if you’ve never been, it’s a real treat! The store is huge and loaded down with tools. My father-in law (Grampa Knapp) is going, of course. He wouldn’t miss it, and I’m very glad to have something like this I can share with him. And somewhere in all that loveliness is a jointer ...
A few weeks ago I decided I wanted to build another backsaw. (Here’s a picture of my first backsaw project.) The saw that I wanted to duplicate is a Disston No. 77 that was my grandfather’s and perhaps even my great grandfather’s. My dad told me about it one day when I was tossing around the idea of a backsaw project. He said that my grandpa kept the Disston No. 77 (you’ll love this) in the barn to remove horns from the cows. It made me sick. I was sure the saw w...
This ‘thing’ about getting really good light near and around the spindle on my CNC table has been a real PITA for me. I have tried various ideas from the web, and other places. Many worked reasonably well, but each had factors, shadows, etc., that I did not like. I think finally I have arrived at a very good solution that works like a champ, is easy to install, and the price is right! I have a “Kent’s” dust shoe on the base of the router (love that shoe!) but ...
Thought I’d try this tool gloat as a blog entry. i’ve had the Powermatic 3520b for a few months now (gotta blog that.) When I first got it the two old Craftsman lathes had to go away ‘cause there weren’t no room in the inn for three lathes.So I put them under tarps in the driveway and Craig’s listed them to new homes. I knew when I got the 3520 that there was only one place in the garage for it…under the 14 inch I beam that runs from the front to t...
Expectations. We all have them when we walk into the shop. Ah yes, I have come to spend a pleasant relaxing day at the bench undisturbed, unperturbed. Then you begin work. Things can go wrong. Jigs don’t work, parts mis-align as the glue holds fast in the wrong spot, wood tears out, screw heads break off, and finishes blotch. Lest it be misunderstood that I am somehow above the fray here, that nothing ever goes wrong for me, that I am the calm sea in the eye of every storm at my bench, ...
Before, I start writing about my workshop project. I was looking for a workshop picture for my blog. I was surprised to find one from my alma mater SCCC Wood Construction Center. I was amazed that the picture was available and could be reused via Commons Wikimedia. Very nice picture and oh, how the picture brought back memories. Good, good times! Anyways, onward with the post! So, the idea for this post comes in connection with the previous post about the Woodies. When I started thinki...
Well after a few weeks and 86 entries we have a winner for the sander giveaway. Now he person who who one this porter cable sander wrote a great story and its always nice to see what working with wood has done in other people life. Click Here to find out who won. It could be you.
Being supremely lazy, and having already made some pithy and amusing (at least, amusing to me) comments on a list of my favorite tools—at least, at the point that I wrote it up—I’m going to link to my Amazon Listmania list here. I’ve gotten stuff since then, of course, and I have even more interesting and fun stuff to say…but that will be in the next (-ish) post. Hopefully this is at least somewhat useful!
I had been wanting one of Lee Jesberger’s Ezee-Feeds ever since I first saw it. It looked like a great solution to the problem I was having getting a decent job of cutting sheet goods.Carleen and I fought the last cabinet job with a 4 roller stand and the new outfeed table I put on the saw. It was certainly better than the single roller stand we had been using. The out feed table and the new big workbench really took care of the out feed side but getting it started was still a two man(O...
