Rust removal from woodworking tools using WD-40...

02-24-2014 02:36 PM by dbhost | 4 comments »

A while back, when my shop was in its unusable state, my lovely bride decided to take a sack of potting soil she had been using, and since she couldn’t find storage space on the shelving unit for it, she decided to leave it on the outfeed bed of my jointer, which quickly turned into rust. I had to clean this off… I did a quick write up on it for my blog this weekend, the process is pretty simple. I don’t have the bed exactly where I want it yet, but it is close enough for...

Routing the miter slots deeper

01-11-2015 04:40 PM by TheFridge | 4 comments »

So to start with. The miter slots on my saw were shallow from routing the table top flat. I finally decided last night to setup my incra 1000hd for this saw, but in order to do that, I needed to rout the right slot deeper. Ill get around to the left eventually, but the right slot will pretty much be the incra’s new home. I used the same 10$ ryobi router and HF router speed control I used on the top, and just used the fence as a guide. I started with a 1/4” straight bit an...

Burr Cleaning Method

04-03-2012 01:43 PM by Jimthecarver | 4 comments »

To begin, this is not my idea but I have adopted it as a very useful way to clean Dremel burs and similar type rotory bits.I began by turning a piece of 1”X1” plastic material (just somthing I had) wood also works fine. As the pictures show. I then drilled a 1/2” hole leaving about 1/2” from the end …. do not drill completely threw it.Then I bought a Dremel brass brush and put a slight crimp at the end of the shaft about 1” from the brush.I then drilled ...

Hi Cody I am a tile setter who recently got into woodworking as a hobby over the last year and I’m not in to making anything to big or fancy really just some little projects around the house as well as remodeling my home. I have been having some trouble finding good hard wood and the prices are really high. With the current economy I thought prices would be down a little but I guess not. Well anyways so far I have been getting my wood from the local home depot and ace hardware but I wa...

Structural Crack Filling

08-24-2009 11:35 PM by Ancientwood | 4 comments »

Ancientwood has developed a technique for filling large, structural cracks, sometimes found in Ancient Kauri slabs. This is a step-by-step approach for creating a flat surface with beautiful patterns and design. 1. The slab must first be flattened. This can be done with a drum sander, planer or a CNC router.2. After the slab is flat, locate cracks that need filling.3. Fill any hairline cracks with color-matched latex putty. Wet the adjacent area of the Ancient Kauri with spirits to get an a...

CHECK OUT THIS FIXTURE FOR ANGLES

02-29-2012 01:55 PM by Metrotek | 4 comments »

I came across this cool angle fixture as they are characterizing it but it has far more potential than just this; I see it as an angle tool for all sorts of applications. At the very least I hope it is inspiring to others.http://airfieldmodels.com/information_source/how_to_articles_for_model_builders/tools/magnetic_building_board/variable_angle_fixtures.htm

$2 Shop Improvement

10-04-2013 06:35 PM by Chris Moellering | 4 comments »

So I’m at the grocery store this week and I walk past the light bulbs. I stop and look… I come home with 2 200 watt bulbs and replace the 2 75 wat bulbs in my garage/workshop. Wow. I feel like I’m on stage now. Can see everything nice and clear. Even if it’s warm enough to have the overhead door open, I feel well let in contrast to outside. Wish I had done this months ago!

No Chamfer Plane? No Problem.

11-12-2012 02:33 AM by nobuckle | 4 comments »

I had to chamfer some small frame pieces but didn’t want to simply hold the pieces in my hand and run a block plane over them. Since I don’t have a chamfering plane I had to improvise. Thanks for your time.
