Part 1: Making drawers and Bit Loosening

01-14-2008 07:33 PM by nakamaruchi | 7 comments »

I made drawers of my router table. It was very hard for me to duplicate many parts. That’s why I thought I should buy a tablesaw. But somehow, I could make many quasi-the-same-sized-parts with my festool TS55. The more I use it, the better parts I can make, maybe. This time I made box joints with my bandsaw to consider a coment from Damian. I could do with it, and its quality was little better than I thought. But it was far from precisive. By the way, when I use my Makita 1101...

Part 2: Spiral bit --Collet loosening

01-17-2008 06:21 PM by nakamaruchi | 7 comments »

I tried as Gary and Todd said this morning. I put it in all the way and then back it out just a little bit———- in many ways. But it wasn’t successful at all. Bit ran up within a several seconds. Cutting some work pieces, it broke through soon before cutting only a few inches long.

Part 3: Shop improvement and Dust Collection of my bandsaw

Part 5: 4 months

09-15-2008 05:18 PM by nakamaruchi | 4 comments »

It is four months since I worked in my shop.I have been very very busy for these four months so that I could not do any of my unfinished project. But in Japan thiese three days were three-day weekend and today I could enjoy woodworking. I finished to set a table for my drill press and jointer. Afrter that I made a small step for my two year son. It was surprising that I could make it for a short time though before I couldn’t do anythig after a long contemplation. Perhaps It wa...
