Here’s a pair of videos where I unbox and demonstrate the usage of a Parallel Fence for a sliding table saw. A parallel fence allows you to use the sliding table to perform rips on the left side of the blade.

Hammer Time #2: Cut small parts on a Slider with a Fritz & Franz

10-07-2020 05:16 PM by whope | 0 comments »

Sliders are a natural for cutting sheet goods. But with the slider basically having a built-in sled, they can do the small parts as well. But if you want to do it safely, you need a jig known as a Fritz & Franz. It’s pretty easy to make and you can get as fancy as you want. Your hands stay well away from the blade. Here’s a video where I use a simple Fritz & Franz to make a new & improved one.

Table Saws: Traditional vs Slider

09-17-2020 11:57 AM by whope | 2 comments »

Having looked around for information about sliding table saws and my purchasing a Hammer B3, I thought I’d put together a comparison between the two styles that is as comprehensive as I could be. I’m not saying that everyone should buy a slider, but I think that those who have the means and the space should consider a slider. I believe that in terms of safety and usability, a slider excels out-of-the-box. At some point, I’ll be doing a comp...

A year ago I was planning to buy a SawStop, now I own a Hammer

09-10-2020 11:20 AM by whope | 4 comments »

About this time last year, I had decided that I had come to the point where I was tired of dealing with the limitations of my old Craftsman contractor saw. So I started looking around with the plan of buying a new saw sometime after the end of the year. I started like I always do when looking to purchase a new machine, at the Laguna website. Of course, I’d seen all the ads, reviews & videos about the SawStop machines. They are really nice and have all the options I wanted, which ...

How to Make a Hammer Handle

06-12-2017 01:26 PM by Lemongrasspicker | 5 comments »

View on YouTube So hammers are something that we all use and quite frankly there’s as many different ones as there are people in the world. There’s a hammer for every job, and there’s a gorilla somewhere that knows how to use it. To keep it practical, hammers/handles are purely individual taste. I’m not a big fan of overthinking things like thickness/shape/curve/popularityontheinternet. There’s no wrong way to do it but there are ways that work better than o...

Dave's Workshop #21: A Brass head hammer just because

02-24-2017 12:55 AM by Dave Rutan | 2 comments »

I don’t know what I might use this hammer for, but I felt like making it. The head is made from a piece of plumbing that I replaced in our bathroom. The face pieces are screw on fitting from my box of ‘future’ clamp parts. The handle is a turned spindle from some piece of furniture. The voids in the head were filled with epoxy wood. I lightly sanded the handle to remove some of the finish and swabbed on some boiled linseed oil. The head was cleaned up with a belt sander ...

How to Repair a Damaged Clapboard

03-10-2015 02:47 AM by Antoine Rizzoti | 2 comments »

The wood siding clapboards on your house will expand during hot weather and shrink during cold weather. Over time, this repeated shrinking and expanding can cause the clapboards to warp, split, and crack. If you have damaged clapboards on your house, the easiest way to repair them is to replace them with new brand-new pieces. You’re going to need several different tools to do this job. You’ll need a pry bar, a hammer, a utility knife, a hand saw, some caulk, a box of siding nails, and your re...

Roy Underhill style Maul / Mallet - Black Walnut #2: Taking Shape.

12-11-2013 01:42 AM by jordanp | 6 comments »

When i mentioned to my brother that i needed him to cut stuff with his chainsaw he came right over.. Keep in mind this wood is very very green. I sealed the endgrain to prevent checking.I used a draw knife to strip the bark off two thirds of the log before we started on the next step. He was so intrigued with the project he wanted one of is own as well, so I set him aside a log as well. I clamped the log down to some gluelam slabs I had outfront. We cut across the grain a...
