Craftsman Table Saw Restortion #3: New On/Off switch, Finish Assembly, Vega Fence

09-27-2016 09:15 AM by Chris Januski | 3 comments »

I should have been updating this more often instead of posting all of the pictures at once but I guess I’ll be better about it next time. Once the base and frame were assembled I opened the motor and found how jammed it was full of saw dust. After cleaning it out I changed out the switch for a paddle switch. After the switch was mounted I enclosed the bottom of the saw with plywood for dust collection. I installed the factory fence and realized how wobbly it was so I upgraded to a V...

My Journey As A Creative Designer - Woodworking and Beyond #1781: Some Distractions and an Update

09-27-2016 07:50 AM by Sheila Landry (scrollgirl) | 0 comments »

As some of you may have noticed, I haven't been posting as regularly as you all may have been used to. It seems that the past couple of months have been a bit unsettling for me and I have been a little bit distracted. I don't know if reading about our move is becoming tiring to you all or not. I hope it isn't. I am finding that settling in has taken much longer than I have anticipated and there is really no way around being distracted. After all, both living and working from ...

Shop Sweet Shop #3: Shop Heating – Gas or Electric?

09-26-2016 06:12 PM by magaoitin | 3 comments »

And then one time I ate some rotten berries. Man, there were some strong gases seepin’ outta my shop that day! This was a big decision/change I made during my build: to use Gas or Electric heat. I figured the requirements for heating & cooling for the space before starting any of my permitting or design work, mainly so I could start shopping around for the big ticket items. I was hoping that given enough time, I could scrounge up a heating unit, compressor, air filtration,...

Quick Tip #7: Work Holding Part 1

09-26-2016 11:04 AM by Kent Shepherd | 6 comments »

Last time I promised a blog on work holding. This subject has almost become an obsession with me the last few years. I got tired of making do with c clamps and other ways to clamp something firmly and safely. I grew up in a shop where safety was not always a big priority and as a result saw numerous accidents over the years. Working in production for years influenced my thinking to do things safely, but yet maintain a certain amount of speed. In the next few blogs I would like to share some ...
