New Vintage 20" BandSaw Project, Rust Removal & Biesemeyer Fence Install #2: Restore & Install biesemeyer fence on the BandSaw

06-28-2016 04:48 AM by MikesProjects | 2 comments »

Be sure to check out the first part of this series where I get the saw & refurbish it… The old biesemeyer fence I am using was originally off a powermatic table saw. The shop I got it from had it set up on a saw that was used strictly for running dados. For that they cut the rails short & it only had a 18” rip capacity which worked out great for this bandsaw because I would have felt bad having to cut the rails down my self. I always feel bad modifying old vintage stuff, I...

Benchtop Work Holding - Handscrew Clamp Modification

01-20-2015 12:38 AM by nashley | 2 comments »

This will be my first post on lumberjocks so I thought I would start with something simple. I’m in the process of gearing up to make a set of dining chairs and was looking for a way to secure work to the top of my bench. I drilled some thru holes in the top of my bench that will allow the clamps to be oriented towards the front or towards the side. I’ve seen bar and pipe clamps used this way but I don’t think I’ve seen handscrew clamps used this way. The bottom jaw ...

Adirondack Chairs #1: Halfway into the White Oak version

09-17-2013 12:16 AM by Jacob C. Heffelfinger | 1 comment »

This is the first entry in this series, but I’m already halfway into the White Oak version of my Rockler Adirondack chair. I’m also building a Western Red Cedar version, but haven’t started dimensioning the boards yet. I’m starting the blog at this point in the project, because 1. I wasn’t a member of LJ before starting the project and 2. I need to get my thoughts down about what I’ve learned so far, because this is really my first TRUE hardwood project...

Enjoy and if any would not mind doing me favor, how about leaving some reviews on iTunes for me. Thanks In Advance, Huck

well I’m sure that many off you have had problems with your table saw fence before. and i have been having a lot of problems with mine so i decided to head to Lowes and purchase a delta T-2 table saw fence. i had to go to 3 of them before i actually found it. and it is a big box. it is a pretty beefy fence. so first i started by removing my old table saw fence and my router table. just to make the installation a bit easier. then i attached the rails to the table saw. lucki...

Gathering Ideas #1: How to Make the Square Hinge Work

05-30-2015 09:20 PM by Jerry | 40 comments »

I recently had someone ask me why not make my hinges square since I was planing the back side of them flat. Truth is I considered it, but could not get past the problem of the hinge jamming into the box as it rotated. If you look closely at the picture below, you can see how the corner of a square hinge rotates down into the imaginary box in the picture. Anyone have any ideas?
