Micro-Adjustment Mechanism #1: How it Works

11-01-2012 05:49 PM by DaveFFMedic | 1 comment »

My homemade micro-adjustment mechanism was featured in my Super Accurate Crosscut Sled project and it generated a lot of interest. Thank you everyone! It was awesome to make it to the daily top three! I have posted a YouTube video showing how my mechanism works. You can view it here.The big error, see if you can catch it, is my left-right mix-up. Thank you for watching. I’ll be glad to answer any questions about how this works. The next posting in this blog will detail the cons...

Simple Band Saw Fence

11-01-2012 03:37 AM by arco21 | 14 comments »

I decided it was high time I quit clamping a piece of wood to my bandsaw table whenever I needed a fence, and upgraded to something more easily adjustable. Based on a design for a drill press fence in a recent Woodsmith Small Shops book, I came up with this cleat style fence. I used 2×4’s for the front and back rails, putting the 45 degree angle on them with my table saw. I bolted them to the existing threads on my bandsaw’s fence. The fence is a piece of cherry, and t...

Old Columbian Woodworking Vise (after evaporust)

10-30-2012 03:44 PM by Jason™ | 9 comments »

◄ Update ►After soaking in the Evaporust solution for a few days I strained the solution back into the bottle and cleaned off the vise to see how well this stuff worked. I was very surprised at how well this stuff works I can only imagine what the electrosysis method would have done!! I scuffed the front a bit to be able to see the markings a little bit better. Note: The Electrolysis method was something I been really wanting to understand better and possibly try in the future. The only...

from my recent project post http://lumberjocks.com/projects/73330 it seems many like the ‘wavy’ design the most here is how it evolvedi started out with a piece of melamineand drew a line across itand divided it into equal partsand with a can big enough to give it a smooth curve alternating back and forth took it to the bandsaw and cut it there i made some strips with my ‘thin strip’ guide(1/8”x3/4”)on the table sawand put one maple and one imbu...

Saw Restoration #2: 75 Cent Disston Saw

10-24-2012 03:07 AM by gilleseg | 3 comments »

The wife and I went out to a local flea market a week ago, looking for nothing in particular. This was the last flea market for the year at this particular venue and the first time we had been this year. I cam across a pair of saws, painted and looking sad. They had tags on the at $1.50 each. I was looking at them and wasn’t sure if I wanted to take on a couple more saws, when the proprietor came around and told me everything was half off. She said it was on account of wanting to cle...

Adjustable Dado Jig

10-18-2012 02:04 AM by Sailor | 6 comments »

My short and to the point video on an adjustable router dado jig. I know there are several plans and videos about these floating around but there don’t seem to be many videos that are short and to the point. I have been needing one of these and finally decided to jump on it and get it done. Hope you all enjoy! Thanks for watching!

Evolution of my router planer #8: Tweakin' it again. Version 2.1

10-15-2012 11:56 PM by TZH | 11 comments »

Didn’t know whether to post here in this blog or in the walnut tv stand blog. So here it is. Found I had to tweak my router planer a bit more in order for it to work as well as I wanted it to work. The slabs I’m doing right now were too long for the regular planer, so had to get out the really long rails once again. Problem with the setup I had already used was the sled didn’t ride the rails as nice or as easy as I’d hoped they would, even with using some wheels/cas...

Quick tips with The Woodworking Coach #2: Flattening a board with the help of hot glue and laminate shims

10-11-2012 05:03 PM by chidwickschool | 4 comments »

Here’s my take on a common challenge, how to flatten a wide board when you don’t have a wide jointer. I acknowledge up front that this is not including methods of flattening with hand tools, but rather, a practical method for the woodworker who owns a planer but not a jointer. The Woodworking Coach Ep.2 - Flattening a wide board with hot glue and laminate shims from Chidwick School on Vimeo.

Sharpened the blades.

10-11-2012 02:27 AM by jumbojack | 3 comments »

My local Woodcraft offers a blade sharpening service. They job it out; a guy comes by every Wednesday and brings back sharp blades the following Wednesday. I had no idea how bad my blades were. They came back with plastic coating across the newly sharpened toofs. I pitched it on the ole Shopsmith and ran a piece of mahogany from the scrap bin through. Seriously, it was like a hot knife through butter. I was amazed at the cut quality. The saw made a completely different sound. Looking back the...
