Ok..turned the frame over, cleaned out around where the King bolt’s threads come up through….and soaked those for a day….Knee rehab was rough…came home and took a nap…..Next morning,,,tried again….hmmm,getting fed up….grabbed the hammer, and hit right on the head of that bolt, 6-8 times. Had to drive the tip of the BIG screwdriver into the slot, added a pair of visegrips to assist…Uuuuummpf With a loud ” Creeack” bolt came loose...

New desk for my computer #11: Top cleaned up, and installed

07-14-2019 01:10 PM by bandit571 | 4 comments »

Sounds simple and easy enough to do? Remove the clamps from the glued up top….only sounds was from a couple of the cawls…creak. Laid the top onto the desk….and scraped away the dried glue….we have ways.. Stanley #70 scraper. Was made to remove painted on shipping labels, from wooden crates. Works great for dried glue, price tags, bar codes they print onto the wood…. Couple of clamps to keep things from walking away….between a beltsander, and a ...

New desk for my computer #3: late night, problem corrected..

06-30-2019 01:32 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

Well, last night, after a long day of Garage sales and other errands…snuck down stairs to the shop. Decided to joint the rough edges of the rest of the blanks for the raised panels…. One edge done, times 11….while doing the other edges, 2 blanks at a time… Noticed that some edges were not lined up, and some blanks were wider than the others…set up the rip fence, run the edges through….now, all 11 are the same width…all edges parallel…good...

Shop stuff #159: The Roubo bench's vise chop

05-28-2019 01:21 AM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

Busy times around here. Not much time making or editing though. It always seems that spring brings more things to do than time to do them in. I did finally get around to edit one though. I go through the process of figuring out and making the chop for the vise. Not quite a complete vise yet but I didn’t want to drag the video out too long. It is complete and that will be featured in the next one. Naturally, I go through some detail in the build. A friend has called me the “...

Curiosity made me do it #2: Used Power Tool pricing (AKA Is this tool a good deal?)

05-24-2019 12:43 AM by CaptainKlutz | 1 comment »

There are hundreds of threads with folks asking about used tool pricing. Getting tired of posting same information over and over in threads, so decided to list all here:What is Great price on used tool?What is Good price on used tool?What is Fair price on a used tool? All these are hard to answer. Let’s discuss some areas that impact tool pricing. Condition:Condition is important. Every tool is unique in the use/abuse, maintenance, and/or refurbishment; that defines the cond...

Late 1800's 12" Frank H. Clement jointer #7: It's running and passes the nickel test!

04-18-2019 01:54 PM by jbswearingen | 5 comments »

My apologies for not keeping up here. With only sporadic work done on this thing and family, after school activities, and other things getting in the way, I kinda forgot. The motor that came with the jointer failed. I haven’t diagnosed it yet, but I think there’s an internal short. It ran briefly, for a few minutes, but now when I power it up with my VFD (the motor is 3 phase), the VFD won’t get above 7Hz and there’s a click coming from inside the motor with each...

Shop stuff #155: Part 11 of the Roubo bench build

04-14-2019 11:24 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I tackle the short stretcher in this on. A lot of work but they came out very nice. It may be called soft maple, but it is not at all soft. Spring being here brings some other chores, so wood work and shop time has slowed down. Although I can’t see how it is slower than the winter was. Maybe I’m just slow…lol. Anyway, I really enjoyed this process and the results from it. View on YouTube
