12-18-2007 05:27 AM by Karson | 22 comments »

The continuation of my Thorsen Hall table. The beginning is here My wife is happy with what is happening so far. I suggested that I try the other Greene and Greene feature that is the breadboard spline a key between the top and the breadboard end. I used a book that I bought on Greene and Greene furniture. The book is called Greene and Greene Design Elements for the Workshop by Darrell Peart published by Linden Publishing 2005. I got a piece of Blackwood 1 ¼” square and 5” long. ...

Hall table #1: A Hall table for my wife - Thorsen Variety

12-16-2007 06:25 AM by Karson | 20 comments »

My wife was starting to get ready for some Christmas decorations. She notified me that she’d like a Sofa table to place against the wall in the kitchen to put decorations on. She also stated a requirement that it be like the Thorsen table that was built by my son Dave. for the Thorsen Table Challenge that we had earlier here on . His table has aged some since Dave made it and it now sits in the kitchen where my wife puts her purse when she comes into the house. It’s wh...

Reviews - Tools #1: Delta Shopmaster Bandsaw - SM400 - A Budget Bandsaw

10-21-2007 12:49 PM by Dekker | 2 comments »

So I finally made an excuse to buy a new tool – a bandsaw to be precise. The problem is that I can not foresee a need for a heavy-duty model, nor can I justify its expense at this time. For that money, I could simply ask my wood supplier to resaw it for me for a few bucks. I went to my local BORG and could only find mid-priced models, $400-800. This was more than I was willing to spend. Then I went to Canadian Tire, since there is currently a 1/3 off sale (thanks MsDebbieP for pointi...

Ceramic band saw guides; do they really work better than conventional bearing type? #1: I will be installing ceramic guides and a 1" re-saw blade let’s see if it makes a difference.

10-03-2007 03:14 AM by sandhill | 13 comments »

Blade guides for band saws are designed to aid the blade’s ability to resist deflection at the sides and back of the blade by the use of bearings usually a guide assembly at the top and another set of guide supports below the table. The problem we have learned to live with is the blade is still able to twist as pressure from the wood being cut is transferred to the back blade guide or as the wood or stock is turned. In turn these bearings do there job by keeping the blade running true t...

I will soon be able to again make shavings and I just got my bandsaw fixed

09-27-2007 04:02 AM by jockmike2 | 7 comments »

A couple reasons I haven’t been able to make anything lately, aside from being short on blood, is two of my important tools took a dump on me. Actually three, but we won’t talk about that. Luckily one was under contract with sears and they honored it gracefully, my band saw, and 2. I must have the luck of the Irish because my Delta 46-765X, 16 inch variable speed lathe died on me, or at least the control module did. The module is no longer manufactured or in stock by Delta or Port...

Bandsaw's bite

08-08-2007 12:39 AM by DataDoc | 22 comments »

No matter how careful you think you are, when you feel the thunk of the blade as it catches on the bone means it’s too late. I reached to brush away a cutoff and got my thumb snagged in the blade. With my wife’s assistance I got it bandaged up, and then sat around all afternoon holding my hand up to relieve the pounding in my thumb. Three Ibuprofen and 30 minutes later I had relief. Now all I feel is stupid.

Bandsaw Modifications

07-13-2007 06:40 PM by Karson | 10 comments »

My bandsaw is an 18” Taiwan version. Grizzly had a similar version a few years ago. The saw works great. My first problem is dust collection. It’s a sweep it up off the floor. Have to find something to do for that. The next problem is when you lay your hand on the right side of the table, it tends to go off of 90 degrees. You can tighten it as much as you want but it still moves. I took the table top off. On the right is a bolt that you move up and down to set the tabl...
