Building my wooden Screw #7: Getting the guide nut ready...

12-08-2016 02:56 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

After making the nut, I decided to go the route of using a router to create the threads on the screw. Which meant I needed to get the starting of a thread at the very top of the guide nut. This way the router can be set on top. If one would take some time, make the spacing correct when creating the nut, this step could be avoided, but really, the time to figure all that out isn’t worth the time, just run it through the thickness planner and get that thread at the top. NOTE: If you...

Building my wooden Screw #6: Creating the nut - that becomes the guide for the screw...

12-08-2016 02:24 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

The process of creating the nut that will become the guide for the screw. I’ve got my nice long tap already into the guide, which gets pulled through the “nut”. I’ve got clamps to hold the nut block to the guide block, which is clamped down on my 1/2 of my glued up bench top. To start, you have the blade barely sticking out and start cranking it in, making sure that any of the scrapings fall off before you reverse it back. Once out, you advance the blade just a bit...

Building my wooden Screw #5: Version 2 - all the pieces...

12-07-2016 10:12 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

All the pieces of my version 2 of the building my wooden screw. In front is the finished tap, notice the grove in the middle (assuming the picture isn’t “scrunched”) – this lets all the scrapings of the nut fall into that grove. In the back of the grove is the mortise for the blade that is right behind the tap. The block on the right is the guide for the tap that is used to create the nut. On the left side is going to become the nut that guides the screw as threads a...

Building my wooden Screw #4: The Dowel to become the wood screw (I hope)

12-07-2016 09:44 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

After having the guide created for the wood screw, I needed to create the dowel that would become the wood screw. This dowel was created out of the birch wood I had from a shelf. I’m not an expert on the lathe, but decent enough to get it moving. After getting the dowel close to the 2.5” size, I’d take it off and see if it would fit through the 2.5” hole – go back and remove just a hair off here and there. I finally got it to the size and moved towards the next ...

Building my wooden Screw #3: Creating the Guide for the Wood screw (version 2)

12-07-2016 08:54 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

Now in the first version I planned on making just a thread box, but decided to go use a router instead. In this picture the small block on top with dowels coming out of it is sitting on top of the block that will be the 2.5” guide for the wood screw. The top block will become the “nut” that pulls the screw through as the router is cutting the threads. The dowels were used to hold both pieces together while I drilled in a 2” hole first, which then I followed up with ...

Building my wooden Screw #1: Guide block for the tap...

12-07-2016 06:06 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

Next I created the guide block for the tap (for the second time) in this picture you can see the block with a 2” hole and my paper template laying on top. The black on the metal is the part that will be used to guide the tap and create the nut. The wood I used was from an old shelf that I build when I was in high school – birch. In front is the LONG tap that I created out of popular. Yes, I know, not the greatest wood to use in creating my wooden screw jigs. On the right side...

Building my wooden Screw #2: The Beginning...

12-07-2016 05:02 PM by schu777 | 0 comments »

As with everyone in the past 2-3 years, I started down the path to build my workbench which I wanted to have some wooden screws for the wagon vise and leg vise. I looked around to purchase some and realized that the price alone was reason enough to pursue building my own wood screw vise. So my search began with Google searching for how to do it. Luckily I came across CartersWhittling that gave me tons of information of how to build a screw. If you are looking to go down this path of build...

Woodshop Tips and Tricks #1: Temporary Metal Vise for Woodshop

06-27-2016 02:18 AM by CharlieK | 5 comments »

View on YouTube I have a very nice woodworking workbench. My bench is adjustable height, has a built in mobile base, bench dogs, a twin screw vise on one end and a quick acting face vise on the other end. It is a fantastic bench for woodworking, which is most of what I do in my shop. I do like metal working, but I focus on woodworking. Occasionally, I need to use a metal vise and I discovered a great, and very easy, solution. I have two metal vises. I keep the better one in the gara...

A very pleasant surprise

01-24-2016 03:34 PM by Jeff2016 | 10 comments »

For the past few days I have been in the shop cleaning, organizing, and router planing stock to build my work bench. Yesterday I came across a few things to part with via Craigslist and a few odds and ends for the scrap pile.One of my neighbors stopped over when he seen my old jeep with the back opened to my workshop door. We chatted for a bit, and he asked if he could send an old piece of junk with me to the scrap yard. Needless to say I found myself quite shocked when he thumped this dow...
