Wood Lathe Router Guide #1: Wood Lathe Router Guide

09-12-2012 03:36 AM by Jim Jakosh | 15 comments »

I’ll take you through the steps I used to build my router guide for my wood lathe. It is essentially a box with adjustable sides and top which has a slot to guide the router bushing. It is made from 5/8” plywood, clear Lexan, Steel and aluminum.I started with a 11.5×11.5 bottom and cut rabbets on both sides on the table saw and made a cut out for the tail stock. The sides were glued in place held square by a couple scrap blocks. They had T nuts installed for the adjustment ...

Lincoln Logs

10-15-2014 09:15 PM by SPalm | 19 comments »

I made two large sets of Lincoln Logs for the grandchildren. This is how I did it. There are a few steps involved so I used indexing stop blocks and such to make it more safe and repeatable. I basically followed some of the same techniques as this post on the web but changed a few things and added roofs. http://home.comcast.net/~pocket83/site/ Also I decided not to stain my sets as we kind of liked the clean pine look, and this is also completely non-toxic (and easier to make). I put to...

Buffing option using a spindle sander #1: converting paint roller sleeves to buffers

10-06-2014 06:49 PM by luv2learn | 12 comments »

My latest edition of ShopNotes featured a tip sent in by a reader for buffing parts. Notice that he used his 1 1/2” Φ hole saw as a mount for a section of paint roller sleeve. I tried this and it will work, but me being me, I wondered if this would work better if the section of roller were mounted over the 1 1/2” Φ rubber drums of both my Rigid spindle sander and the small drum of my drill mounted drum. Since these drums expand the sleeves would not slip while buffing. ...

New Caster Wheels for Contractor Table saw

10-04-2014 05:08 PM by bobdurnell | 3 comments »

I finally found a supplier for the rubber caster wheels on my delta contractor table saw. The old ones had chips and had worn quite badly. The supplier is in Pennsylvania of course but I used a digital caliper to measure the specifications. I sent for eight and I have installed them and they are an exact match for the old ones. I also have a stand for the radial arm saw but I put a band saw on it, uses the same retractable caster system.

worksharp jig

07-06-2014 01:22 PM by Gibernak | 4 comments »

I’ve had WS 3000 a year now and I still love it. I recently bought the bar attachment and some Tormek jigs. It works amazing. But I needed a way to remove the burr on the inside of my gouges when using the SVD 185 jig. So I made these mushroom shaped tightening knob out of MDF, they lock the wheel on and I can the apply honing past to them. I made some different sizes and with different past for different sizes of gouges. They works very well. Just wanted to share the idea. ...

Homemade (DIY) BeesWax

04-13-2011 02:26 PM by dedalo | 13 comments »

I’m putting together my first cutting board, within this projext I had doubts about finishing … So far, I used cooking oil for finishing wood for cooking (food contact). Reading the blogs (here :D), in many places do not recommend this because the cooking oil (vegetable) rot, making odor, or is likely to raise small fungi or microorganisms, which is not advisable to these applications … That’s how I came across the beeswax, in other places is a cream based wax that is sold specifically ...
