DIY Table Saw Fence #1: Table Saw Fence

12-10-2007 07:21 AM by Hutch | 238 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...

Sketchup Models of Shop Furniture for a Small Shop #1: Mobile Shelves, Expandable Assembly Table and Materials Cart

05-06-2009 03:40 AM by Jack Barnhill | 10 comments »

I have a small shop, about 200SF. It’s not as small as it once was, about 90SF, and it’s not as big as what I hope to have some day, about 600SF. To keep from climbing over things and make it easier to move things around to accomdate the operation of the moment, I thought I would adopt the “everything on wheels” strategy and double up what tools I could in single cabinets. So, to make sure that I had the right designs and that everything would fit in the shop and ...

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...

Sharpening a Card Scraper #1: I learned how to sharpen a card scraper today - the easy way

03-18-2009 04:01 AM by CXD | 4 comments »

Between T-Chisel and The Wood Whisperer I have been convinced I need to learn to use a card scraper. So, I bought 2 on Amazon.com. One I figured I would mess up beyond repair, and one to be able to actually use. I don’t know if anyone else has had problems with sharpening card scrapers but its been a pain in my butt. I’ve just had a hard time justifying the purchase of a burnisher, about $25, and sharpening stones, a lot of dollars – or sandpaper. Then you really need...

Hand Planes #2: First Round Cleaning

08-19-2008 02:06 AM by ryno101 | 6 comments »

Figured since I started, might as well share my ongoing project to get these two cheapo planes into serviceable condition! After perusing the various blogs about plane restoration here on LJ’s, I decided a simple first step would be to get ‘em taken apart and do a first round cleaning. I looked at David's blog, and though I was intrigued by electrolysis as a rust-removal process, I thought to myself “Isn’t that just really an electroplating going on? Is it reall...
