Setting up my shop - Delta Contractor Saw part 1 #1: I thought I had been getting good cuts before, boy was I wrong

02-07-2011 08:33 AM by DurangoDelta | 4 comments »

Got a lot of tools from my father as an early inheritance when they were cleaning out the one and only house where I grew up back East. Thanks to some good friends, I was able to get the whole shop moved out to Colorado as they were also moving out West. The table-saw is a Delta 10” contractor model with the two stamped supports and the round bar fence. There were also a bunch of blades that my dad had for years. I tried aligning the fence to the front and back of the blade, but t...

The Basement #11: Incra Router Table - Bit Storage

01-02-2011 12:30 AM by JL7 | 5 comments »

Added a bit shelf and a drawer to the table, both out of Maple. The shelf is 1” thick laminated from narrow strips basically cutting board style with breadboard ends. I used a little spray adhesive and some graph paper as a drilling guide – despite that I did manage to drill 2 holes off location…...... The template holder just sits on the bottom and you can slide it out a bit to grab what you need. The drawer box is painted MDF ...

Beads Box #6: Incra Style Box Joint Jig/Sled for the Table Saw (998SE)

12-31-2010 02:15 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

While waiting for glue to dry I tackled the large drawer that will be faced with the mahogany/maple-stripe front. After the last project where I used dovetails for all the small drawer I wisened up (is that a word?!?) and went with box joint. My box joint jig is based on my Incra 998SE Miter gauge . The 1000SE comes with the flip stop which is very useful with 2 built in stops, and a micro adjustment which I use to sneak up to a perfect box joint fit. For added stability I also use the...

The Basement #7: New Incra Router Table

11-27-2010 12:09 AM by JL7 | 6 comments »

I finally got the materials together to build a decent router table. I have had the Incra Ultra Jig around for awhile now, and have used it on some of my previous router tables, but my homemade tops were always off just a little. Always seem to have trouble getting the router plates to sit just right in the opening, etc. This time I bit the bullet and bought Woodpeckers 27×43 offset table along with the PRL V2 lift (very sweet!). I acquired the extruded aluminum pieces from some di...

Table saw upgrade #3: Getting Closer?

10-27-2010 02:22 PM by dedalo | 3 comments »

After a while away from the garage, I could clean it up and make some room to keep with the table saw.I changed the incra postioner for a longer 25”, I cannot import the 32” because of shipping cost, but I think the 25” will do. I made a top out of some left overs and tried a “sandwich” of MDF and hardboard. I think the final one will be made out of fenolic multilaminate and hardboard. this top desn´t have a hardwood frame becouse is just to try things out...

Rebuilding a vintage Craftsman Table Saw 113.29920 #9: How the Incra screwed up my table saw.....

10-26-2010 06:15 AM by KTMM (Krunkthemadman) | 8 comments »

HAHA, got your attention. No, the Incra didn’t REALLY screw up my table saw, it just created a new hurdle to overcome. (Note here this will be set-back/screw up number five.) I have an Incra TS-LS 32 that is probably the best investment I have in my shop. If Incra made a circular saw fence, I would own it too. (Might not need a table saw if they did that.) But, this entry is not to praise the Incra, it is to scold the Incra, and all of it’s micro-adjustable goodness. So,...

Incra Offset Router Table #3: Doors, Drawers, & Other Details

09-27-2010 03:30 AM by SWM | 1 comment »

This project has really turned into a labor of love. Although, my work is far from what I’d consider craftsman level, I can tell that boxes are getting more square and my work more precise. What else can you ask for right? What better first project for a new router table and fence than to build it’s doors and drawers. The unit has 4 drawers on the right side: 4”, 5.5”, 6”, 9”. The bottom left drawer is 12”. No real science to the apportionment, ...

Super Duper Sled #1: The Sketchup Plans

09-04-2010 08:25 AM by AttainableApex | 11 comments »

Well here is my latest sled design. This sled is a combination of many sleds that i have seen in the past. One sled that really influenced it, is the super sled by john nixon at eagle lake woodworking. I like the t track on the sled part (the sheet part) but i am going to use real t track. I also liked the t track on top of the fence, which i incorporated, but it stops there. This sled should be able to do just about everything. You can cut 45’s ( blade tilting at 45 deg ) and every o...

MDB #2: Shave and a Cut - Cross Cut that is

08-02-2010 05:30 AM by PurpLev | 5 comments »

Disclaimer: This blog follows my Magen David Board that is already finished and posted here At this point (see previous post for the methodology I chose to take for this project) , I realized that my plan for mass production, and gluing the long strips to one another to make the geometry would cause more trouble, and decided to cross cut them all to their final thickness instead, and in a way changed my work order to a ‘one of’ setup, albeit it would have been better if I did t...
