Small Projects #35: Bill Press

01-10-2021 10:12 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

SWMBO ask for place to keep monies flat and orderly ahead of bank day. Had a chunk of purpleheart kicking around and made this box. Purpleheart cash keeper The box is 1/4” stock except for the weight which is full 15/16”. The full width stock was sanded to make the finger curve so both sides would be exact copies after resawing. I have about a 5/32” thick center cut with an odd semicircle cutout. The half moon grip was cut from a piece of scrap mahogany using my pla...

wingless' Ridgid R4511 Granite Table Saw - Bevel Mechanism Gear Skipping Repair

02-09-2019 01:05 AM by wingless | 6 comments »

There are several Internet topics about Ridgid R4511 granite table saw owners w/ tilt bevel mechanism rack and pinion gear skipping problems, but I have not located any with the solution to that problem. That problem existed on my terrific new-to-me R4511 table saw. There was no solution provided when I called Ridgid technical support. (When I determined the solution, I called them back so they would also have that information.) On my saw, when attempting to set a 45° bevel, just pr...

Two more brass toys--Um, Tools!

04-28-2016 04:50 PM by Dave Rutan | 8 comments »

This is sort of a continuation of an old blog about 3 Shopbuilt Brass Tools. I recently made these two little tools out of brass strip, 1/16 in. thick by 1/2 inch wide by 12 inches long. I wanted to make a small brass bevel gauge ever since I saw one that Mads made. The Pythagorean gauge I only recently found accidentally here on Lumberjocks.. Its usefulness is probably marginal, but it’s certainly a conversation starter. It measures just under 8 inches long. The be...

Reclaimed Pine All-Weather Morris Chair #4: Stretching Keeps One Limber & Slat Attack

05-21-2014 01:21 AM by TimBridge | 2 comments »

Stretching is important. It increases circulation, increases flexibility, increases one’s range of motion, has been proven to reduce stress, has been known to reduce lower back pain, and holds chairs together. Here I’ve added the front and back stretcher and the left and right stretcher. I made my first mistake of the project here. It’s probably not noticeable in this pictures but it will be revealed in a later blog entry. Can you spot it? The upper side stretchers...

Table Saw Belt

09-08-2012 05:04 PM by RexInMinn | 13 comments »

I replaced my table saw belt in the spring and am finding it now slips off the motor arbor when I adjust the blade for a bevel cut. This is a 25 year old Craftsman Contractor series. I noticed a few weeks ago that the blade would not rip a 2×4 without getting hung up, smoking to beat the band and generally just not cutting it (so to speak). I wonder if I went with one of these new hi performance belts or if I need to replace the motor arbor with something that will hold the belt se...

Machinist Toolcart #2: Measure twice, Cut Once, then measure twice again, and cut once more.

06-20-2011 04:14 PM by PurpLev | 12 comments »

Its been a while since the previous post mostly because I wasn’t sure I was happy with the original design. I went to the local lumber supplier that carries mahogany plywood and bought the 3/4” material for the carcass and baking. While there I had them cut the 1/2 full sheet to 2 halves (2 quarter sheets) so it’ll be easier for me to transport with my car (don’t have a large truck anymore). With the 2 pieces now sitting in the garage, the original design seemed ...

Building a wooden shoulder plane #4: Let's make us an iron!

05-25-2011 10:12 PM by Div | 16 comments »

If this is happening a little too slow for your liking, it is because I have to make sawdust all day long to keep the wolf from the door. That is 10 hours gone. Making these little planes and blogging about it is mostly a night time affair, after taking care of normal daily chores and duties! We have made a plane body and it is looking pretty good! Time to do some metalwork.This is what we want to achieve: At the top is the finished plane iron, below is the material I made it from; ...

Wine Cork Display Tutorials #2: Cutting and Measuring

11-18-2010 07:12 AM by FaTToaD | 5 comments »

In this tutorial I’ll be making three redwood wine box displays. Two will be 12” x 12” x 3”, the other will be 10” x 10” x 2 1/4”. These are the two most common sizes I make, the 12” square box will hold ~125 wine corks, where as the 10” version will hold ~80. It doesn’t look like that many will fit in there, but I promise you they will.Before we begin, I want to mention that these tutorials will be available on my photography sit...
