Tools, Toys, and Accessories #1: Blog Post #3: MilesCraft TurnLock BasePlate/Bushing Set

07-31-2010 06:39 AM by HerbC | 1 comment »

I started a new project this afternoon. We have three Maltese dogs and the smallest frequently hides behind one of our couches. My wife asked could I make something to block the young dog’s access to that area and I’ve designed a bracket that will do the trick. Part of the design requires creation of a 2”x2” square recess 3/8” deep in 1/2” plywood. I decided that rather than going freehand with the router that I’d use a template and a guide bushing to...

10-31-2011 03:58 PM by need2boat | 3 comments »

Took a few more pics over the weekend of my apron for those who are interested in making one. ;-) I’ve already started a list of things to address with on version two. JFF detail of the top pocket. Although I really don’t work with a ton of power tools, the planer being the loudest of them, I’ve been trying to were ear protection. reinforced the where the cord comes through just in case detail of the pocket

Drum/Disc Sander #2: Sander design is complete, construction has begun

06-11-2012 05:54 PM by Kevin May | 2 comments »

Two months in, progress has been made, but of course, not as fast as I would of liked. Figuring out the motors and drives has been the most difficult part of this project. I have been trying to keep the out of pocket cost as low as I could, and provide the power and control that a sander project of this magnitude needs. I had ordered a 2hp 1ph motor on ebay, but that fell through when the motor was damaged by UPS. Since then, what I stumbled upon was a motor controller that uses 220v ...

Handplane Restoration #8: A couple of new candidates

04-08-2007 10:49 PM by WayneC | 6 comments »

There is a monthly antique sale here in town. I went down there with the family this morning to look around. I’ve got some pictures to share of what I got today and will add these at the end of the entry. I’m sharing primarily because David asked to see what I got. I was looking for a #18 block plane, but the dealer who normally has a large selection of planes was not here today. So no #18 today. The number of dealers was a little less than normal today. I’m assuming...

Inlay Tools #5: Thicknessing Gauge

07-13-2009 04:30 PM by Jon3 | 3 comments »

Once again, I went for some more of that curly spalted maple offcut. I spent some time seeing if I could figure out how to make my own tooling from a spare card scraper, my my first attemps to cut down hardened stock were a pretty big failure. I picked up the L-N cutters, since they’re only $15 and appropriately sized already, and went to town. This is by far the simplest tool in the batch. Really, its just a block of wood with 2 cuts, 2 rabbets, and 4 screws. I didn’t thin...

Drum Sander #1: From Micro to Macro

05-13-2010 09:40 PM by BritBoxmaker | 13 comments »

Having thoroughly enjoyed making the Little Bess Ring Box, the smallest project I’ve ever made in boxes, I have decided to go to the other end of the scale. I’ve always hankered after a Drum Sander but could never afford the £500+ price tag. I idly tapped ‘drum sander’ into the search box and found that not only was I not alone in not being able to afford one but that there was a solution. Build you own. There are numerous ideas out there but the soundest seems to be ...

Work(shop) in Progress #10: Reorganizing Single Car Garage I - The plan.

08-25-2010 04:37 AM by PurpLev | 20 comments »

Lately, everytime I go to the garage whether it be to get something, or work on something I tend to always come back with bruised/scratched shins. The garage is a somewhat of a mine field. It never really started as a workshop, so tools and machines just accumulated as they came with no order or planning and each one made it more and more stuffy and cramped. My wife just asked me ‘why don’t you take everything out and reorganize the place’.... hmm.. that means spending...
