Format your excel formulas to inches and fractions

12-07-2014 11:52 AM by ScottM1 | 7 comments »

Have you ever had the result of a formula in excel to return something like 17.3333 then tried to format that cell to fractions up to two digits? Only to get a result of 17 1/3 when you really need it to be in 1/32, 1/16 or 1/64 increments. Well I have a solution for you. In this video I will demonstrate how you can use the MROUND function to accomplish this. So check it out and let me know what you think. Here is the link. http://youtu.be/Jfy_lglzNhA

Tools #4: Table saw outfeed table

03-18-2014 07:42 PM by PASs | 6 comments »

I got a Ridgid 3550 table saw a few years ago off Craig’s List.I like the saw, but I’ve wanted to do an outfeed table.Since the saw is on rollers I couldn’t go with anything too big.Also the saw is shoe-horned into it’s storage spot in the garage, so size was a consideration. And I wanted the fold-down to cover the motor to stop me from snagging on things rolling it in and out of the shop. I also wanted to use just materials I already had on hand (read scraps and cu...

This is the way I have chosen to cut this out. First to go is the “O”. Leaving me with with the long “H” which is like the backJust a short tiny cut removes the 1st “P”of the double “P’s” Now I only have the “H” left and the “G” and I can cut them any which way I want to.In the next and last of this much too long series I will be bringing in “The Cheater”

Resurrecting my very woodworking related computer

09-14-2010 02:41 PM by Don "Dances with Wood" Butler | 12 comments »

A few days ago we had a disaster.NO, I mean a DISASTER.Well, our house wasn’t destroyed and nobody died, but it was terrible in another sense.Y’see, the computer I work on, here at my desk, is also the server for our little business LAN. So when my wife innocently opened an email from a good friend, Malware struck hard.And it was very sneakily malevolent. It changed all the extensions of file names ending with .exe and that halted almost everything. I couldn’t even change the extensions back ...

Ceiling Hung, Folding Sheet Storage Rack #6: It's up, the rack is hanging and Just About Done!!!

11-17-2014 03:15 AM by Dirk Van Essendelft | 0 comments »

All I have to say is that the rack is up and it is going to create a TON of free space, especially that wall! I am going to be able to get a lathe in there some day instead of having a mess of sheet goods! I added extra storage above the rack too. I have a place to sticker lumber now! Please take a look and leave your comments to let me know what you think!

Handicap cabinet for a little girl #1: Linear actuators and the build

05-21-2009 04:22 AM by dryhter | 5 comments »

Earlier this year I had the opportunity to bid a cabinet for a handicap little girl. This was my solution to her problem. The problems as I saw them was how to get the step stabilized when in use and how to make the steps easy to use. I believe the actuators solved those problems nicely. Anybody wanting to incorporate linear actuators into a project just give me a shout and I would be happy to talk with you and tell all.
