Jet Table Saw #1: Blade out of alignment on Jet JWTS-10JF 10" contractor saw

1708 days ago by Jim Jakosh | 10 comments »

I stopped at a fellow LJ and she had a 10 Jet table saw with the blade out of alignment with the fence and table slots by 1/8”. The tilt mechanism went about 15 degrees and bound up tight too. I called Jet technical service (1-800-274-6846) and they were very helpful. They sent me an E mail note with instructions to align the blade. Initially when we talked, I thought I had to loosen the trunnion bolts to move the blade into alignment.The instruction said to get a flat 6×9R...

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #2: Arched Candle Holder

1709 days ago by sras | 4 comments »

I changed the title of this series since this next entry uses wood I don’t think I could ever throw away (it used to say “burn bucket” instead of “scrap pile”). I have had these this planks of cherry for a long time. They are about 24”x3.25”x1/8”. This is another case where I do not have a design, but I’ll figure it out as I go… I had cut them for a project that didn’t work out and they have sat ever since. I decided to ...

A carved lid box for my Daughter who loves Orangutans #5: Tools and Rules-Part 2

1710 days ago by wyeth | 3 comments »

Here are some of the rules I have learned for carving small objects – i.e. those that are small enough to hold in your non-dominant hand while you use a sharp carving knife of some kind. In my case this was the Vesper knife I had purchased. The knife must be sharp – a blunt tool is a dangerous tool. Cut away from your body parts – it is almost always possible to hold the object in such a way that the knife is cutting away from you so that any slip of the knife will sh...

Production jig for multi business card holders

1713 days ago by Bob #2 | 14 comments »

I sometimes get requests for things I have made one of and find that making a second one is as time consuming as the first and prone to the same errors.To avoid this I try to make jigs that take the guessing out and speed up the process when the need arises. Special thanks to Dusty56 who inspired me and helped me get up and running on this project. To follow this build please see my blog here:http://shopprojectsandjigs.blogspot.com/2011/01/production-jig-for-multi-business-card.html

Out of the scrap pile and into a gift #1: Convert random scraps into end grain boards (cut first - design later)

1720 days ago by sras | 4 comments »

OK. This blog stuff is new to me. I’ve got a couple projects going where I am forcing myself to leave the large stock alone and work with material that ends up getting burned after I have too much of it. I have been using CBdesigner from jayman7. He posted a project on this here. I have searched through blog entries and I think I am using this in a little different way. Another big resource for me has been dewoodwork’s blog on how to make an end grain cutting board. Clearly,...

Hello one and all....

1721 days ago by apopj | 15 comments »

Just found this nifty site, joined and wanted to say hello and to thank all of the welcomes… I am a neophyte woodworker, only been playing at it for about 30 years. Nothing major just piddling in the shop. Current shop consists of Delta 14” bandsaw, Rigid table saw, Rigid jointer, Delta planer, Rockler router table, Delta drill press, Delta dust system, Dewalt miter saw, and a Dewalt scroll saw along with assorted power and hand tools. Currently working on bandsawn boxes for...

Re-assembly

1722 days ago by Tim Dahn | 6 comments »

After soaking everything in kerosene, then scrubbing with a small wire brush, scotchbrite pad, and wet dry sand paper I painted the main gear a frame with Rustoleum paint and baked it on in a small toaster oven. I could not see any reason to shine the parts up to like new as I plan on this drill being a user in the shop. I decided not to refinish the handles, they are in pretty good shape. Also did not get a picture putting the bearing back in, I blame not wanting to get my greasy fingers on ...

Christmas Project 2009 #3: Box joint mortise and tenon

1722 days ago by dryhter | 0 comments »

The final fitting of the tenon in the mortise. Once I achieve the perfect fit it is time to make the Box joint within the mortise. Note that the mortise pocket is about 1/8th in. deeper than normal as is the tenon, I believe this simple modification goes along way to help strengthen this type of joint. With the aid of a simple jig the box joint is made. Accuracy and close tolerance work is the key to a box joint’s strength, A machinists caliper is probably the easy way to se...
