Powermatic 3520b #1: Remote controller modification

12-07-2013 05:21 AM by PASs | 5 comments »

Powermatic 3520b Motor Controls Rewire I got my Powermatic a couple years ago.As I was researching its features I came across an article about removing the entire motor controller panel and putting it into a switchbox.I like that Idea much better than the factory on/off remote option. After a year and a half I finally got around to doing the job.Since a picture is worth a thousand words I decided to photo-archive the job.Also it’s easier than writing down which wire goes where.The...

Fuming a Small Box With Household Ammonia #2: After Six Days of Exposure

09-20-2014 02:02 AM by Roger Kimmel | 6 comments »

This is the box after two more days exposure, for six days total. It isn’t much darker than it was after four days, so I’m going to call the experiment over. I’d like for it to be a bit darker, but at least I got the contrast I wanted with the basswood lid and pins. Even the basswood took on a bit warmer shade. This is why I put the lid in to fume with the sides. I thought that the pins might darken, and I wanted them to match the lid. Here is the box before fuming:One...

Labor Day Labor savers, When hand tools are faster, better, and cheaper.

I know I am opening a can of worms :) A big can of fat squirmy ones :) Power tools buffs before you throw the first rock or board let me explain, and hand tool galoots don’t get too happy I still love my motorized friends (although I still am fond of hand tools ). There are points in our modern power tool shops that hand tools are just plain better one such example was the other day a friend stopped by and wanted me to chamfer some small boards for him, as I reached for my block plane h...

Improvised Magnetic Vise Cheeks

06-29-2013 07:24 PM by DonGriffith | 2 comments »

While my basement shop continues to grow (much to the chagrin of my wife, who thinks this whole “woodworking thing” is just a phase I’m going through), it is still a pretty tight space. I’m thus always on the look-out for devices that lend themselves to portability and, preferably, affordability. In that vein, I recently picked up a small 6” portable “carpenter’s vise” at Harbor Freight. Now, I know many of you more seasoned woodworkers may thumb your nose at ol’ HF, but for cheapos like m...

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PhFuDSq_oyg Paint onto wood is fun! If your going to give this a go, don’t use hi tack masking tape. Push it all down firm and take it off before it dries. Hope you have as much fun as I have been.

This is some wood I got from a job that was on so valueable every scrap had to be saved for three months after it was installed I watched as it was sat unstickered in a east window rained upon, stacked upon, I saved it from the dumpster twice, kicked over and I would go over and restack it(I’m an electrician), lunch upon get this crap outta the way upon, and I would always say I’d love to have that wood I’ll get out of the way” We have to keep it it is valuable” ...
