Drill Press Wood Turning

09-11-2012 01:37 AM by TheBoxStoreCraftsman | 4 comments »

Adding a lathe to the arsenal of tools in your shop is usually a milestone for most weekend wood workers as other tools, needs and money tend to push that addition down the list for most of us. So what do you do if you don’t have a lathe but you have the need for some small turnings to help finish off that special heirloom jig you’ve been working on or that special gift for your wife? You could buy them, get a friend to make them or if you have a drill press, you can make them you...

Performax 16/32 Drum Sander #2

10-05-2010 03:52 PM by WoodArtbyJR | 4 comments »

Well, I’ve had some time to use my new tool acquisition and have discovered a few things (I’m sometimes a SLOW learner). My performax is of the older vintage and has a 2.5” exhaust port with a 4” adapter so I connected it to my Oneida cyclone system and went to work. BAD IDEA….....The Oneida system is a GREAT system but, cleaning the internal filter is not the easiest thing to do. SO, after using the sander for a relative short period I noticed that the suctio...

Splinters of thought #3: Mass Produce Your Wedges.

10-20-2015 09:52 PM by bearkatwood | 4 comments »

Wedges are very useful to have around. If you are using wedged tenon joinery they are a must. You can use them to fill a bad dovetail joint, hold an un-level chair from rocking while you mark out the leg to be cut, repair a bad tenon etc. When I make my wedges I try to make them is a mass scale so I don’t have to worry about running out in the middle of a glue up. I have had that happen, where I had to stop in the middle of a glue up and make a wedge, very annoying. So here are some pic...

Dave's Workshop #5: ZCI for My Benchtop Tablesaw

11-03-2014 10:01 PM by Dave Rutan | 4 comments »

Because my table saw has one of those thin metal blade inserts, I’ve been thinking for quite a while how to make a zero clearance insert for my saw. I cut quite a few small or thin items and often, as might be expected, the thin cuttings fall down the slot between the insert and the blade. Only once did this actually result in something a bit startling, but I wanted to remedy the situation in any case. At one time, I tried making a ZCI by dadoeing around a hunk of wood so that ...

Jig made of Legos for making clamp rack

10-11-2014 04:15 PM by Keith Kelly | 4 comments »

I woke up early this morning with an idea of using Legos to quickly build an incremental table saw jig. This jig helped me quickly produce a new clamp rack that incorporates my new parallel clamps. The 1×8 line pieces acted as stop blocks for crosscutting dadoes. (in the future, I’ll use 2×8 pieces to reduce play). When one cut was complete, I removed that line, scooted the board to the next line, and cut another. For my parallel clamps, a line every 6 circles was perfec...

Contractor Clipboard, Why didn't you think of this!

04-15-2014 12:55 AM by CueballRosendaul | 4 comments »

If you use a clipboard on the job, you know how difficult it is to find a place to put it down while you handle the tape measure or tools you’re using. There’s never a good place to put it except to tuck it under your arm where it often gets dropped. Solve that problem by building a clipboard with a spring clamp on the back and you’ll never look for a spot to put it down again. Here's a YouTube video which shows more details.
