How to Reverse a Woodworking Clamp

08-19-2014 03:24 PM by WoodAndShop | 5 comments »

In my above video I share a eureka moment that I had when trying to apply reverse clamping pressure against the walls of my dovetailed tool chest. The original blog post is here. I discovered that I could simply reverse my small Bessey clamp’s jaw and it would push outward instead of inward! It’s kind of hard to explain in words, so just watch the video! I’m not sure if any other clamps can be reversed like this, but I hope it helps. Here is where you can buy these clamps: -Besse...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #1: HF-DC Dust Collector Optimization

08-18-2014 03:02 PM by Morton WoodWorks | 9 comments »

I know that many people have modified the HF-DC but I just wanted to put my spin out there. I have been doing a lot of research on the many different styles of updates/modifications that have been done and holy cow there are a lot. But, most of them rely on the Thien principle that seems to be pretty simple. On the Thien blog there is a guy that tests and records many different modifications with different setups. I am going to set-out to make my entire system buying the least amount as p...

...in Which Tim Makes a Rake

08-09-2014 03:07 AM by Tim Anderson | 4 comments »

Ever since I bought a house, I’ve found myself doing too much yardwork, and not enough woodworking. I decided I could use yardwork as an excuse to woodwork. Rather than buy a $45 aluminum landscaping rake that I would probably only use 4 times in my life, I decided to use the old rake handle I found in the yard when the snow melted and a 2×4 to make my own. The first step was to remove the broken end of the existing handle: With this done, I started shaving off the end with m...
