Constructing "Old 99" #15: The couplers

09-07-2008 02:06 PM by MrWoody | 3 comments »

Before I left the shop last night, I drilled a 5/16” hole at the inside of the car coupler. This morning I cut, sanded, sanded, and sanded some more to shape both couplers. I cut 4 axles to length and glued one wheel on each axle. Now I need 4 trim spacers. They are 1 3/8” X 5/8” X 3/8” with a 7/32” hole and a 45° cut on one end. Now I need to make four wheel trims. On the plan there are 9 dimensions and 2 diameters and I could do the layout. But these are full size plans...

Storage for this old house... #1: The design....

01-04-2010 02:35 AM by RichClark | 3 comments »

We have an old house and there is not place to put anything…. Our closets are tiny our rooms are cluttered with chests and junk, the stairways have chests and piled on junk. The reason for this is that A/C or Heat was not invented when the house was constructed. So we pile up towels and sheets and such in several trunks and chests that while they are pretty(I made them) the are unpractical. Thus we start Sandi’s Crhistmass present ! SO. in that light I was tasked to build ...

Incra Double Dovetail Project #6: Putting it together

10-22-2011 12:57 AM by SPHinTampa | 3 comments »

In my last blog, I created the tray bottom. In this blog, I will cut the grooves for the tray bottom, rout finger holds and put the tray together. First step is to cut grooves in the tail section. I use the MCLS 13/64” plywood bit (because 1/4” plywood is smaller than it’s nominal size). As a rule of thumb, I like to cut the groove 2x the groove width (so 1/2” in this case) from the bottom in order to leave enough material for a strong assembly. I mark t...

Bandsaw/Drill Press Box

05-21-2010 05:34 PM by clieb91 | 3 comments »

Ok so here is the blog to go along with my lastest project. I really wanted to do something in the shop from start to finish yesterday. I was cutting up some wood I got from work due to storm damage and decided to cut a few otherpieces that have been floating around in my garage for a while. A bandsaw box is something I have been wanting to really try for a while (made a few experiments) So here is the process I took from a fresh log. Sorry did nto get nearly as many pics as I guess I should ...

Rocking Chair Build #8: Router extension

11-07-2011 06:38 AM by Topapilot | 3 comments »

This modification to my router table allows me to use a round over bit on the legs, even though they are much wider mid-way along the length. It consists of a riser block mounted to the table using two of the four standard mounting holes. Using all four would have been possible, but I wanted to be able to instal and remove this for normal operation. By using only two bolts, the router mount does not fall off the bottom of the table during change over. The riser block is two pieces of ...

Repairing/Upgrading HF Bar Clamp

02-06-2010 07:11 AM by HungryTermite | 3 comments »

I wrote a review on these HF Bar Clamps and I gave them a good review based mostly on the cost. At basically 6 for the price of 1 better clamp, they would have to achieve an impressive failure rate for me not to like them. That said, I had one fail within the 1st week of owning it. Rather than return it and get a new clamp that would suffer the same flaw, I realized I could fix it and upgrade the other ones I bought to fix the problem for about another $1, which still makes them very c...

Honing a fresh edge quickly

06-03-2013 11:43 PM by lwllms | 3 comments »

Cutting edges are supposed to be created by the meeting of two surfaces. Most the stuff on honing I see only addresses refreshing one of those surfaces but both surfaces suffer dulling wear in use. Repeatable, dependable creating of a sharp edge requires addressing both surfaces. Flat stones and a matching flat face on the tool to be honed facilitate quick honing. This video was created in response to Chris Schwarz’s blog post, Shut up and sharpen. He wanted links to videos posted. ...
