Curiosity made me do it #1: Grizzly Paint Colors

03-25-2019 02:00 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

Was curious if I could find a Grizzly touch up paint color that would match a Geetech jointer I own. Since OWWm.org site does catalog information on non-US made wood working tools, touch up colors can be hard to find for off brand, now antique Taiwan made wood working tools. Ended up digging out this paint color summary in Grizzly parts catalog that I thought might be nice to share: Grizzly PPAINT-1 – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023SGrizzly PPAINT-1A – N/S GRIZZLY GREEN G1023S AE...

Model Build #2 : The Hummer #1: The Chassis

03-25-2019 12:09 AM by Jason1974 | 18 comments »

Gents, so I decided to start another project. I had a huge chuck of cherry on my wood carts so I decided to mill it down and make something with it. Haven’t decided what other woods to use but I think I’m going to make the wheels out of walnut for the tyres and maple for the rims. I also have a small chunk of bloodwood I would like to incorporate into the build. Maybe I’ll use it for the seats. ............. Thanks for watching!!!.

Morris style glider #16: Glider mechanism

03-03-2019 02:05 AM by Ryan Tanguay | 0 comments »

Working out the kinks of the glider mechanism. Purchased a hardware kit from Platte River Engineering for the glider part. It came with diagrams and instructions on how to make the wooden parts. I adjusted some of the parts to work with the dimensions of my chair as well as the integration into my chair. Didn’t realize until I got to this point that the instructions aren’t as clear as I would have liked them to be. Come to find out that certain assemblies in the glider base are...

Adding LED Lights to Your Tools

02-11-2019 07:13 PM by Matt Snyder | 7 comments »

Having good focused lights is essential on many tools and often your shop lights just don’t cut it. Adding an LED light on an adjustable neck is cheap and easy and, with a little modification, you won’t have to use up any more outlets. I bought four of these lights on Amazon for $10 each They have a magnetic base so they can attach to your tools and give you the light you need where you need it. Modifying them to use your tool’s power is fairly simple. First cut off the plug a...

Morris style glider #15: Backrest spacers

02-11-2019 03:37 AM by Ryan Tanguay | 0 comments »

Made a quick trip to the local Stickley store to do some ogling, I mean research. I am glad I did, since I was a little stuck on the pivot pins on the backrest. I found that they use wooden washers to keep the backrest centered on the chair, since it is slightly narrower than the chair frame. I was also keeping my pins for the pivot and the positioning snug, but found Stickley’s quite loose making it much easier to reposition. It makes sense now that I think of it. The pins will never b...
