Holtzapffel workbench project #7: building the twin screw vise

10-07-2008 02:57 AM by martin007 | 15 comments »

Hi all Well, I couldn’t afford the 350$ + for the wooden screws, and I didn’t like the look of the black plate on the veritas twin screw vise. So I built my own using 2 tail vise screws (40$ each) First I built the big wood pieces that will old the metal nuts. I didn’t want to use through bolts and opted for a drawbore mortise and tenon attachment. I used the smallest bit that I could for the hole, The screw is 1 1/16 and I used a 1 1/8 bit. I found It helps...

Building The Holtzapffel Workbench #1: Finding the lumber

01-24-2008 06:58 AM by Mike Lingenfelter | 13 comments »

Well I started the first step in building the Holtzapffel workbench. I went out last weekend and picked up some Douglas Fir for the bench and started to mill it up. I choose Douglas Fir for a couple reasons. First it was pretty cheap, I only spent about $150 on the lumber. Secondly, its a stable and stiff wood, which is good for a bench. It is also pretty hard for a “softwood”. I also used Douglas Fir on the small bench I built as a sharpening station. I like how it turned ...

I was working on a new project when I layed out a bookmatched veneer and right there in the middle was a smiling face staring out at me. It’s 2 1/4” tall. What got me most were the pupils. The veneer is Indonesian Madrone burl. ..

Tool Care #1: Oil Applicator

04-28-2008 09:28 PM by Mike Lingenfelter | 7 comments »

A while ago I posted a message about cleaning and taking care of your tools. In that thread MyronW talked about making an oil applicator out of PVC pipe. It sounded like a really good idea and I have been planning to make one for a while now. Well I finally got about to making something. I think it’s a little different than what MyronW talked about but still made out of pipe fittings you can get at any hardware store. I used black ABS instead of PVC, but I don’t think it really matte...

10-21-2007 05:18 AM by SPalm | 29 comments »

After posting my Woodworker’s CNC Router in the projects section, I received several requests to show how I made it.

So here goes. Do you need one? No.Should you build one? Probably not.Have I done anything useful with it? Not really.Is it cool? Oh yeah. In 2004 I stumbled on an Inte...
