Delta 46-715 Lathe Hack

09-08-2017 07:26 PM by denverdan | 1 comment »

My lathe has been working great since I rebuilt the pulley system with one exception. Sometimes it’s really hard to take the chuck off of the spindle. On the original pulley there were indexing holes and a indexing plunger lock that would lock the spindle allowing the chuck to come off after use. Since my pulleys didn’t have the holes there wasn’t a way to lock the spindle. Not a huge issue, but kind of a PIA. Normally I would use a couple wrenches and eventually it...

Lock Miter Router Bit Setup

08-09-2017 06:36 PM by Rich | 23 comments »

There was some discussion about lock miter bits on Rick M’s Deals thread. I didn’t want to muck up his thread with off-topic conversation, so I am tossing this out there for anyone who is not certain about setting up lock miter bits. First, a diagram (the numbers shown are for the Infinity Lock Miter Jr. Router Bit item #55-502). Note that the markings are for reference only and, particularly in the case of the fence location, don’t precisely represent the actual set up....

L-Shaped Desk #5: Legs, snipe, joints, finish and a clever (I think) 45 degree angle jig!

08-07-2017 02:38 AM by SauceMan | 2 comments »

Hey, It’s been forever since I’ve posted. I’ll keep the words minimal and show my progress as a set of images as much as possible. That should make scrolling through this blog post pretty quick. First, I really need to work on cutting. I now have a 5 HP table saw (or is it a 3 HP saw pretending to be 5?) and a brand new blade, but I get serious burns. That’s what you see on the left of the top-most leg up there. But there they are, 6 legs ready to go! ...

Shop Organization - Or Lack Of

07-10-2017 08:04 AM by Cathie Zimmerman | 11 comments »

About a year and a half ago I retired as a director of public safety. I’d served in the industry for 17 years and was ready for something different. I was absolutely ecstatic that my wife supported me retiring “early.” So, I leapt head first into the rabbit hole of this new hobby of mind: woodworking. Little by little I’ve found fantastic deals on the tools I needed (ok wanted lol). I can proudly say I have just about every power tool one could save up for. They are...

Making The Very Small Wood Hinge III

07-09-2017 04:26 PM by Dan | 6 comments »

Latest refinements on my small hinge making process. First, an upgrade on my router sled which allows better control and smoother sliding with excellent accuracy. That Ridgid router in the picture is still going strong after years of heavy use. Set up to plane maple hinge halves to 1/8”. I want to cut down the time it takes to make these so I need to develop standard procedures with detail. So, after planing they are cut to identical lengths and widths. When I am trimming thes...
