Shop jigs #4: Cutting out the wheel blanks.

11-08-2018 11:16 PM by htl | 11 comments »

There’s a hundred ways to cut out the blanks for the wheels but here’s my method. It is best to use oak, walnut, and maple is out standing, you need a strong grain so it doesn’t chip.Cutting the treads a little deeper than you need will give you space to sand out any chips, make the wheels a little bigger than needed for this reason also. My wheels need to be 2 1/2” so I ripped down some lumber a little wider than needed. Then at the table saw cut them to ...

Well my Anniversary for LJ is here again

05-07-2018 01:30 AM by Karson | 28 comments »

Monday May 7, 2006 was the day that I became acquainted with the web site named Lumberjocks. It looked like an interesting site, But no where in my mind did I think it would be anywhere near what it is today. The friends that I’ve made online and the miles that I’ve traveled to visit some of them. The parties we’ve had, the baptism that I was invited to stay over to share with a child on their day. The contests that we’ve participated in and the harassment (in fun) ...

01-11-2018 02:38 AM by crowie | 10 comments »

I need some assistance PLEASE with the scaling the model or toy. I have a few of the Toys & Joys Plans all say “Scale – Full” !! BUT what is there actual build scale to that of the real vehicle; in particular the 34 Ford or 36 Chevy??. The reason for asking is that I have found the Hot Rod shape i’m going to have a go at making, complete with dimensions and now need to scale those drawings to suit the chassis of one of the T&J’s vehicles and the ...

A Dump Truck Adventure #2: The engine and radiator Part 1

01-04-2018 07:27 PM by George_SA | 5 comments »

Next up is the engine. I used a darker wood (off cuts lying around, and I’m not sure exactly which type of wood) for the engine block and a lighter wood for the bonnet (I recently learned that in American English this is referred to as the hood ) Next is the radiatorOn my first truck (Old Time Farm Truck #5: Engine Block) I glued some thin strips of wood to the radiator to form the grill and loose strips to form the frame. I found that to be a bit difficult to get the spacing rig...

The Mirror Steerer

02-23-2017 04:06 AM by Jack McKee | 1 comment »

The Mirror Steeror Years ago a friend offered me a large pile of plexiglas mirror rejects. At the time I was teaching a science and carpentry class for kids, so I was always looking for interesting materials. While turning possibilities over in my mind, I took two pieces (8″ X 24″) and fastened them, side by side, to a board so that one curved in, the other out. The kids got a kick out of this. They could see their faces in weird shapes, which was good for a laugh, but left me wonderin...

Toy Construction #18: Drilling rig #2

02-13-2016 07:03 PM by htl | 10 comments »

Well got another fairly warm day in the shop 50 degrees F. Cut out the derrick sides and made a glue up jig to hold them together while I added the cross braces.This is a little trickery because there are only three sides to it.This is one of the great things about these plans, just copy, print out the plans, glue them to some wood clamp it up and you have all the angles and places to drill marked out. Now glue on the braces and every thing will stay in place till the glue hardens. T...
