Fixing my obsolete ryobi miter saw blade guard

08-19-2019 01:08 PM by moco27 | 0 comments »

I’ve been using an old ryobi ts1340 10 inch miter saw for years. It’s lightweight and dependable. I had a friend of mine try and change the blade while I was working on the roof. He didn’t know what he was doing and took things apart that shouldn’t have been apart for a blade change. He didn’t get it back together right, made a cut and cut off the bottom half of my blade guard. The saw was dangerous even after the guard was properly placed on the saw since...

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...

Mitre Box, a rehab story #2: 2 soakings, new decking..wire troubles

08-05-2019 12:37 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

OK…Remove the extra deck…and tossed it away, took the mitre box outside to sit in the sunshine for a while The Oringinal decking. Found a metal disc in the deck…Also got a better look at the stock rests… These are also OEM items, they have, instead of a folded up end, just a small pin, that keeps the rests from being pulled out too far, and getting lost… Now, about that metal disc in the deck….since this version of the mitre box does not use a ro...

Leg unit is connected to the knee well unit….which is then connected to the d...

New desk for my computer #9: Knee well unit build

07-09-2019 06:21 PM by bandit571 | 0 comments »

I did get a stash of parts milled up.. 2 front stiles, two rear stiles (one of Pine), 4 rails, and the pieces for the center divider….I also got an ugly 4/4×4 plank to the shop.. rough sawn, had a large knot. Needed this cut into a couple parts, 28” long, for now… They also need to be 2” wide…set the rip fence for 2-1/4” width…run both blanks through, reset the fence to 2”, more of less…and run each through, with the freshly...

Shop stuff #161: Roubo vise completed

06-06-2019 04:07 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I built and installed the anti-racking device for the vise. I went kind of old school on it. It was easier than I thought. A couple of mortises, some holes and away we go. Now that the vise is functional it will soon be time to get into the final details of getting it all glued up and completed.

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 “...

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...
