Today's Buys 20FEB16

02-21-2016 01:47 AM by Dex378 | 2 comments »

So today I had an hour to kill so I went up to my newest favorite store in XXXXwood, MA. It’s a junk store pretty much, they buy out estates and sell off the house contents, pretty damn cheaply I might add. Anyway, as a lover of all that is junk and all that is tools I picked my way through and found some decent stuff at a spectacular price! So I picked up a 25’ extension cord, a Stanley framing square (even though I probably have 6 of them at $0.50 cents I just had to have it...

A Simple Bird Cage Awl #3: The Handle

02-10-2016 02:40 AM by bondogaposis | 9 comments »

With the blade hardened it is time to make a proper handle. In a previous blog I stabilized a fine piece of spalted apple. That is what I am going to use to make the handle.Chuck it up in the lathe and cut a section of copper tubing for the ferrule.I begin by making the blank round and cutting down on one end for the ferrule.Here I have it fit.Mix up some epoxy and spread it on the ferrule stub and in place the ring on the finger.After the epoxy cures I mount the blank into my scroll chuck ...

Repairs #1: Tapered Reamers

02-08-2016 06:19 PM by Lazy_K | 2 comments »

A variety of woodworking trades require the use of some sort of tapered reamer…. Stringed musical instruments have tapered peg holes, or woodwinds with tapered holes running the length. Windsor Chairs and spinning wheels are often put together with tapered joints. And barrels have tapered holes for both the bung and the tap. I’m currently repairing yet another spinning wheel, almost done: All of it’s joints are tapered round tenons in tapered holes. you mi...

Dust Collection??

02-02-2016 01:14 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 10 comments »

I’m in the market now for a dust collector. Being married with 2 kids there really isn’t a lot of money I can budget for this at this time. I’ve read the reviews on the Harbor Freight dust collector but I’m wondering If I could get some woodworkers perspective that have this unit. How is it? Does it work well? And is it ok to run pvc or gutter sewerage pipe instead of the metal stove type of piping???? Any info on this topic from all LJ’s would be great.

Side projected: Split nut driver

01-28-2016 08:44 AM by blue77 | 6 comments »

Thank you CFrye for directing me to terryR’s blog on how to make a split nut driver out of an old spade bit. I did not know what a split nut was a week ago, now I writing about how I made a dedicated tool for them. I followed terryR directions starting with cutting the top off a ½” spade bit. Then with a dremel and a small file I squared out the hole. I used a sharpie to color the area that I was working on just so I could see it a bit better. I had to thin out the bit as it was too wid...

Table saw blade hard to go down????

01-27-2016 02:30 PM by Bob Rodrigues | 4 comments »

I have a General 50-200r model table saw. Lowering the blade is a chore becuase it feels like its binding. I’ve squirt some liquid wrench & WD40 on the worm drive screws & worked it up & down. It’s gotten better but there is still an issue. Wondering if anyone else is having this issue & what’s a good lubricant to use on these gears as well? Also what would be a good cleaner to clean the gears with as well? Thanks all.

Dave Plays with Wood Turning #5: A Big Fail

01-05-2016 05:59 PM by Dave Rutan | 6 comments »

I got it in my head that i could create a turned box for my niece’s birthday. I glued up two blanks with a piece of plywood in between the two halves to add interest. I went out and bought some plumbing supplies to make a face plate for my drill powered, wood turning lash-up.And went to turning. While it was spinning it looked good, but when I stopped it to take a look, the ugly truth was revealed. I’m not sure if the problem was the vibration of the drill, ...
