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...

I am starting a simple blog on how I made my candies for the box called “Eye Candy” This will work as a blanket answer to all the questions I have recieved on this.

So follow along if you are interested.Also, I want to thank everyone again for voting and ...

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 ...

Works for me #6: Blade Cleaning

03-08-2010 07:06 PM by Dave Owen | 8 comments »

This morning I cleaned one of my table saw blades, so I decided to write a little blog about it. For any of you who don’t have a favorite blade cleaner – and for those who want to try something different, here’s a suggestion. The product I’ve used for years is “Lestoil Grease & Stain Remover” (a product of the Clorox Company). Some of you old-timers like me may remember their advertising jingle from years ago – “It’s so easy when ...

Step by Step Acetate Pen Turning #2: Turning the blanks

03-08-2010 09:56 AM by FrankoManini | 0 comments »

The last entry in this series closed with the blanks setting overnight for the epoxy to cure. After this is complete, the ends of the blanks need to be squared to the same axis as the brass ferrules. This is achieved using a drill that is sized to the inside diameter of the ferrules, which is topped with a 4 winged cutter head. The drill is square to the cutter head, and the ferrule aligns the bit to the axis. Don’t overdo the drilling here. You can inadvertently erode the ID of th...
