Radial Arm Saw Upgrade

03-31-2020 05:54 PM by JimChrisawn | 0 comments »

Hello allI apologize for being away so long. I have had a really bad time of it with my health. (A hiking accident that ended with a broken neck and later Three heart attacks) Making it back though and wanted to share a recent project that might be of some interest. I bought a DeWalt 7790 12” Type 9 Radial Arm Saw recently at a school auction(10.00). Needless to say it needed some TLC. Mostly cosmetic, however the table was junk and needed replaced. I build a Mr Sawdust table to for ...

Video Woodworkers I Watch #20: Rex Krueger

03-29-2020 11:17 PM by Dave Rutan | 1 comment »

Lately I’ve been watching the videos of Rex Krueger [link] The videos are a little longer than I’d like, but the content and Rex’s style make up for it. Rex has a series called Woodworking for Humans where he shows haw to make some projects using basic hand tools. He also has a series where he builds a Roman style work bench and progressively kits it out, using basic, affordable hand tools. He also has videos on acquiring quality tools cheaply and refurbishing ...

Shop stuff #184: Super easy build

03-17-2020 10:41 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

What strange times we are living in. With the medical community urging us to practice social isolation I figured it would be prudent to follow their advice. Not that we go out much anyway. We are homebodies. We do have one young fella that comes around every week with our flyers containing what’s on sale. Since he is out a lot and around a lot of people I thought it would be best to build a small box for him to deliver it to instead of our regular little chat each week. It’s...

Shop stuff #183: Inexpensive LED lights installed in the shop

02-29-2020 02:44 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

If you saw my last video, you saw the new LED lights I bought on Amazon. Well, I finally got them put up and I like them a lot. Instant light with more even light in the shop. Oh, I got a hair cut in there too…lol. It was a pretty easy conversion and a cheap upgrade to the shop lighting.

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #112: Simple, Efficient Wall Rack for Hand Wood Screws

02-29-2020 02:14 AM by Retired Guru | 0 comments »

I finished building and mounting this evening a rack to hold my hand wood screws. Of the designs I found on the Web, and in the mags I own, the horizontal beam configuration was the most storage efficient for the space it has to occupy. I’m now completely out of wall space to mount anything on. Of course, we all know that no good turn goes without its appropriate rewards, right? “Hun, I need to buy more hand wood screws…”

Woodworking on a Half-Shoestring #111: 3 Dollar Saws

02-29-2020 12:21 AM by Retired Guru | 8 comments »

The other day I answered a Pennysaver ad for a bunch of hand saws selling for $3.00 each. He told me over the phone he had over 30 of them for sale. When I got there he apologized for the wrong count: 67 saws! Many had warped, bent and/or dented plates, especially along the teeth, and were quite rusty, with a few exceptions. I found two rip saws and a back saw that had flat plates and spine, respectively. Since taking this picture, I’ve run all three saws through pine lumber. I w...

Shop stuff #181: 2020 Shop tour

01-31-2020 11:14 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I have not been spending much time in the shop lately. I have a few projects on the go, only one of which is being shot on video. I have noticed a bunch of my content creator friends have been starting the year off with shop tour videos so I decided to jump on the bandwagon and do one myself. This is it, warts and all, in mid project(s), and with some stuff not put away.

Introductions #1: Reason I redefined and retooled my approach

01-30-2020 03:00 PM by BlackMacX | 2 comments »

Hi fellow LumberJock members, As we all must, our stories start from some kernel of truth, some event that makes us think differently on things. For me, it was a growing realization about woodworking and that, I missed the joy and fun of it. That being, I had the power-tools to do things; but both couldn’t find the inspiration nor found in what I would make, the satisfaction and pleasure I sought. The creativity was lacking. So it was, probably about a year ago now, I was bro...

Converting a Garage into a Wood Shop + #5: Still trying to clear space in shop for room to work

01-24-2020 07:57 AM by CaptainKlutz | 3 comments »

Sorry it’s been awhile since last post. Between holiday events, stubborn head cold, reoccurring migraine issues, and general family fun; nothing exciting has happened in last month, although there has been slow progress? Sorted through ~ton of old paper files, and books taking space in garage due to downsized office. Recycled 80% not needed in today’s digital age. Found project files dating from late 70’s when Dec PDP11/70 computer was considered a super computer. Y...
