A Simple Fix for a Vexing Problem

215 days ago by Paul Stoops | 4 comments »

One of the most favorite tools in my shop is my Performax (Jet) 16-32 Plus drum sander. I use it on almost every project. However, this power tool has one characteristic that has proven to be a great vexation to me over the last 15 years – the tendency to trip the motor circuit breaker while sanding. This one part blog describes my journey to find a solution to this problem. The 1 1/2HP Jet drum sander drive motor has a thermal circuit breaker rated at 15 Amperes. Exceeding this limit for ...

Unfortunately, my photo card was corrupted, so I lost all of those pictures. Today, I will show you the continuation of making the lid and a start on one of the tra...

Shop Made Dowels The Easy Way & Two Useful Ways to Use Them

1635 days ago by stefang | 37 comments »

Why make dowels when you can buy them cheap? Well, you can’t buy dowels in every kind of wood. Also you might be working on a project and you don’t want to take the time to go to the store to get them, or maybe you like to be self sufficient like me. Dowels made on a lathe or with a router jig take a lot of set-up time. With this method you only have to prepare the stock, do a little carving on each end and in about 30 seconds you have a nice long dowel. If you like that idea a...

Box Building #5: Barrel Hinge Installation

890 days ago by Kent Shepherd | 21 comments »

After showing some of my boxes in “Projects”. I have received some inquiries about the installation of the barrel hinges I sometimes use. I hope this helps for some of you. I know it will be overkill for many of you, so just use what you wish. With any type hinge, the layout is critical. These hinges are simple to install, but you must get your holes in the right place. If you don’t, I can assure you , you will not like the results, and you will not be able to go back and...
