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

Shop stuff #154: Roubo bench Part 10...Legs and top joinery

03-30-2019 03:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Perhaps the toughest, most challenging joint I have ever cut. But, that’s why I did it. For the challenge. It took me a long time to do it too. Working less than an hour at a time in an unheated shop in the winter. But I finally get all 4 done up and the legs in place. They are far from perfect, but they will be functional and with wedging they will look OK. Heck, even Schwarz wedges these joints on his, and he’s has a lot of experience at it. Next will be the stretchers...

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 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...

And set aside…next day, got #4 cleaned up, box was looking a little odd…decided I could build two boxes by cross cutting a...

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #13: Saw jointer handle

03-16-2019 07:28 PM by Bill Berklich | 2 comments »

Knocked out a second small project for the Swap to go with the Split Nut Screwdriver, a Saw Jointer Handle. Generally the antique Stanley’s are in steel. This one is Osage Orange starting with a 1.5” x 1.5” x 12” chunk I cut squared and scraped a blank. Then it was a matter of cutting a relief file and clearence for the saw. Then I installed a brass insert (I’d go steel next time). Some sanding and some poly A small brass thumb scr...

Lounge Chair #1: Design

02-25-2019 02:01 AM by Kaelin Quigley | 2 comments »

Inspired by a Moser lounge chair. My shop teacher had some old molds lying around from over 20 years ago and built the project around it. In this project, I’m using his old molds/forms and drawings to make something similar. All bent lamination from 4/4 cherry. Eventually, it’ll hopefully be finished with leather cushions.

Rotocator - DIY Style #2: Make a DIY Rotocator

01-30-2019 11:19 AM by CaptainKlutz | 11 comments »

What is Rotocator? please see post #1. :) Preface:What I have made below is not new. It is not my original idea. I take zero credit for this tool. I found some images for this tool searching for cheap way to make the trademarked Rotocator, and later found an obscure blog post with parts list. Since I first book marked the web page, it has disappeared from WWW. Decided that this tool was important enough it needed some additional documentation in WWW, especially for folks here on...
