Small Projects #44: Buffer storage box (in process -- no pics yet but stay tuned)

04-22-2021 06:03 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

For those following this blog you know that I make smoking pipes. Toward that end I’ve been looking for a way to put a really high polish on them, esp. the mouthpiece area. Grizzly just came out with a ($110 + S&H) 4”/6” mini buffer that looked just the thing. It came and is a very nice little unit. Its a surprisingly heavy casting and motor: Grizzly T32004 mini buffer One of the nice features is you have both a “rpm to zero” off switch, but there is...

Handy tools #14: Ixion eggbeater drill

03-31-2021 03:43 AM by Dave Polaschek | 24 comments »

Got an Ixion eggbeater drill. It was in slightly rough shape, with everything working, but some surface rust, and the original finish mostly chipped off. Also, the wooden handle on the crank was gone, and the metal shaft was nasty with rust. So I gave it a good bath in citrus degreaser, then cleaned it up. Turned a new handle on the lathe, and used an 8d wire nail as a new shaft for the handle. Primed the metal that originally had enamel on it, then gave it four coats of shiny new ...

Small Projects #42: Indoor Car Stereos (two)

03-14-2021 03:22 AM by Madmark2 | 3 comments »

Have had this idea about building a home stereo (glorified AM/FM) out of a “one DIN” car stereo. Saw someone make a beautiful zebrawood case for an old Marantz receiver and got the bug to make a wooden stereo of my own. Continue reading for build details … 2nd set for SWMBO I’ve got a beautiful piece of wenge that I’m going to use for the front and top. The plan was to use cherry for the ends but things change. The wenge is very dark and the cherry was t...

Small Projects #31: Rolling Printer Stand

05-08-2020 05:06 PM by Madmark2 | 0 comments »

Most of the “stands” I create are simple 2X4 & ply creations and this is no exception. However this is one is for our home office and needed to be a little less Spartan. Its the exact height of the computer table – and rolls! The printer is an hp all-in-one with scanner and such. Because of this it needs a minimum 18” height when the scan lid is open. I mad the shelf 20” to give some clearance. The raw 2×4s were planed down to 1-1/4 to remove th...

So is it just me or when I hear the words “self quarantine”, I also hear “Perfect time for a big shop project!!” I am in deperate need of a new tool wall.

Small Projects #7: Clamp Stand

01-27-2020 09:57 PM by Madmark2 | 1 comment »

A clamp rack was about the first thing I put up. Nine months later I’ve got more clamps and the old rack was overloaded. I built this rack out of 8’ of 1×4, 8’ of 1×2 and a couple of feet of 2×2.Completed project The clamps hang by their handles and the 1×2 acts both as the hanger and end stops for the different clamp lengths. Spring clamps and the smaller clamps are on the sides. The whole thing is on wheels so I can move it around when needed. ...

Small Projects #6: Dog Feeder

01-27-2020 01:26 AM by Madmark2 | 2 comments »

Dogs! We have two sizes, small and bigger. Roscoe is an English bulldog who doesn’t like to share with the other, smaller, dogs. Due to extreme inbreeding Roscoe can’t eat if the bowl is flat on the floor. The better half had been holding his dish by hand twice a day until I built this simple dog bowl stand. It’s just at the right height for him. It was built out of some 2×10 and 1×12 scraps. I beveled the corners of the sides to make it less of an ankle biter....
