Chisel Mallet Angles Made Easy

03-30-2011 06:31 PM by swirt | 26 comments »

I’ve seen several posts here on LumberJocks related to someone making a mallet for chiseling (not the round ones for carving) and wanting to know what the best angle is to put on the head. I put together a complete mallet making post that includes an angle method recommended by a few old Timber Framing Books as well as some woodworking magazines. Here is the complete source of this post which includes making the mallet from start to finish, and in case you are only interested in the...

Dead blow mallet (finally made me one - laugh) blog.

02-03-2015 10:32 PM by mafe | 28 comments »

Dead blow malletfinally made me one! I remember years back when I started out on this wood journey, I saw a picture of a DIY dead blow mallet and was really fascinated, bought a small pack of lead beads and put it on my once to do list… Years later now I found that pack of lead beads and decided I had to finally make it, not because I needed one, but because it was a dream back then and it made me kind of travel down memory lane to make it into reality. Once I looked into it again...

HFDC Dust Collector Optimization #3: ASSEMBLY, Installation & 1st Use

01-27-2015 08:16 AM by Morton WoodWorks | 7 comments »

First off, wow, I can’t believe that I never finished this blog. And, for that, I apologize but I was too excited after I completed it that I never took the time to get back to it. So, here it goes. Unfortunately, since it is all put together, all I have to provide is the minimal pictures that I took during assembly. Nothing about putting it together was very difficult, but ensuring an air-tight seal makes it run all the better. The first aspect of construction is to create the...

Mobile Torsion Box Workbench #5: Making it Mobile (but Stable)

01-27-2013 11:04 PM by Ron Stewart | 3 comments »

After I bolted the top to the stand, I encountered a problem: the bench was solid, but it wobbled. Three legs touched the floor, but one hovered slightly above it—not by much (less than 1/8”), but enough to be annoying. No problem, I thought. I’ll just trim the longer of the two front legs. So I made a little jig to support my router so I could use a flat-bottomed straight bit to nibble off the end. That didn’t take long and worked very well. I fli...

DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

12-10-2007 07:21 AM by Hutch | 249 comments »

This is my old tablesaw fence. It is a little hard to see from the photo, but I cracked it trying to “micro-adjust” it. So I started to look for an aftermarket fence, of which there are some really nice ones out there. I just didn’t want to spend quite as much as they were asking because I have a previously owned Central Machinery tablesaw. I also was curious to see if I could come up with my own fence. I was worried about two things with most diy fence systems that...

ZCI for vintage Craftsman 113.298341 #1: Time to replace the first go at it.

09-19-2011 06:47 AM by rweitz | 2 comments »

I have an old Craftsman with a funky insert. It’s aluminum ( I used to think steel) about 3/32” thick and “D” shaped. I have not found any one anywhere that makes a compatible insert that I can buy. The lip on the insert is so thin that conventional insert instructions just won’t hack it. I took some acrylic and made an attempt at a ZCI: and it worked for a while but was a bear to make. The acrylic is starting to crack and I’ve hacked away some of the...

Projects #4: John White FWW Workbench - Planning and Milling

07-16-2007 07:25 AM by Jeff | 21 comments »

This is my interpretation of this cleverly designed bench by Fine Woodworking’s shop manager, John White. There have been a few mentions of this bench on the site and I have been eagerly anticipating having the time to build my version of the bench. I’ve had the lumber for about a month but had to sacrifice time in the shop to get our condo ready for sale this summer. Those preparations are all behind KT and I now and I can finally work in the shop when I want to. We’ve h...
