Don't have a jointer?

04-01-2010 02:37 AM by HighRockWoodworking | 14 comments »

How to get a straight edge on a rough cut board that has irregular sides without a jointer. I don’t have the space in my shop for all of the tools to make everyday task easy. My shop is in my garage and just not enough room for a jointer. For myself it works out most of the time because I plane and joint most of the boards for a project in my families shop up in north Carolina that I visit about once a month. But what do you do if you need a board right now? Well there are a few differe...

Shopsmith Restoration #6: Stripping and Cleaning

03-29-2010 12:35 AM by PG_Zac | 6 comments »

I have spent the last several days down with a nasty bug as did most in our house, so the work slacked off a lot. Anyway – so on to more stripping and starting the cleaning. Here is the inside of the headstock with a bucket of bits..I have found that the speed control sheave assembly needs to be replaced – the wire loop is supposed to be fixed in the end of the shaft with a bearing. Bearing is gone and the wire is near worn through..Headstock completely dismantled and brushed...

Sketchup Shorts #6: Compound Angle Cuts

03-17-2010 06:02 PM by PurpLev | 7 comments »

I just posted this as a comment/response on another thread but figured this might be something that others could find useful. so here goes. This short tutorial shows one way to create a compound angle cut on an edge of a 2×4. this can translate to any other situation where a compound angle is needed: I started with a 2×4, used the protractor tool, and made a guideline from one corner at a 10 degree angle: I then selected the opposite EDGE of the ‘board’ and usi...

Making Candy #2: Bits and Pieces

03-16-2010 03:32 PM by Andy | 11 comments »

When I started out to make the candy, I thought I would just simply cut up my scraps and sand them smooth.This worked for some pieces, but I soon found that a more systematic approach was needed for consistancy.I wasted half a day making pretty pieces, shaped all willy nilly that were impossible to fit into the tray without leaving gaps everywhere. I did think about bedding the pieces in a liquid resin, but figured it would either set up before all the pieces were in, or flow over the rim whe...

Good Quality Hand Planes On a Budget

03-15-2010 05:31 AM by knotscott | 16 comments »

In recent years there’s been an influx of imported lower priced value hand planes hitting the market. Some are decent, some are marginal, some are a waste of money. In the lower price ranges, most newer planes use lower quality metal on all components, thinner blades, thinner castings, and poorer machining techniques. With an upgraded aftermarket blade, and some fettling, some of the low cost new planes can be made into useful tools, but many are an exercise in futility and frustration. Even ...
