Musical Instruments Restoration #8: Violin 2 - Jig for the ribs on action

07-15-2013 05:17 AM by BertFlores58 | 4 comments »

Took me a little while to do the steel work on the jig. Have to make the somewhat C-clamp with push block. Cutting threaded bars and looking for the nuts. Shaping the push blocks (made from ebony) become tiresome after making 16 pieces. These are made from scraps. Here are some self explanatory photos… I give notes on some important aspects and ideas that you can grab suited for your project and availability of materials: Notes: 1) The piece that was bended was narra ripped by ...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #13: Simple Corner Spline Jig

01-17-2012 07:48 PM by rance | 2 comments »

Here’s my final version that I came up with after doing the over-thought version. I began with one that had an adjustable stop and all that but I gave it away. I like this one the best. When building it, use only glue, no metal fasteners. Dowels work if you feel you need them. The bottom plywood is not really needed but I had already built it that way. The next one prob. won’t have it. The backer board(bright blue) is just double-stick-taped in place. Square might work better and ...

Drawer Front Jig

01-17-2012 04:06 AM by pastorglen | 2 comments »

One of the challenges I faced on my recent bed project was getting my drawer fronts to all line up the same. I left very little room for error, and, since I had two rows of three drawers on each side, I really wanted all the drawer fronts to be “covered and aligned.” The solution: a good jig. Below are four pictures of two different jigs I used. The first three are for aligning the drawer front to the drawer box. I basically built two “U”s. The first U was the ...

Milling on the Bandsaw

11-15-2011 06:53 PM by LelandStone | 3 comments »

For some while now I’ve had some lemon and olive logs simply…growing old in my shop, waiting for me to “get around to it” and make some sort of milling attachment for my ShopFox bandsaw. (No, I wouldn’t buy it again; it’s a machine which cuts corners where it shouldn’t, in my opinion.) Naturally, I wanted a cradle that would adjust in and out relative to the blade (on the X-axis?), while allowing me to rotate the log 90 degrees AND holding it secu...

Circle cutting #9: New cutting and sanding jigs ...

04-05-2011 11:32 AM by degoose | 17 comments »

With the big clean up and purchase of new equipment, I decided that the old ratty jigs had to go… and I have now built both a cutting jig and a sanding jig… Started with some Melamine… and then cut a dado in some Camphor for the sides… this will also help support the material… The lower part of the sides wraps around the table on the Bandsaw… and on the Disc Sander… using t-nuts and star knobs I attached cleats under the table to hold it in pla...

MDF Spline Cutting Sled #1: The Sketchup Chronicles

03-19-2011 07:43 PM by Brad_Nailor | 17 comments »

I was flipping through a catalog the other day and happened upon a spline cutting sled that this company was selling. I really liked the design of it, so I went on their website and learned all about it, watched videos etc. The only problem was, I didn’t want to pay the (what I thought was) high price for something that I could probably make myself…not to mention I’m broke, and cheap, and have enough scrap materiel’s lying around that I can make it almost for free. I...
