1958 Powermatic Model 100 Planer #1: I built a dust chute

10-11-2018 01:36 PM by jbswearingen | 2 comments »

I bought this planer about four years ago. In that time I’ve replaced the 3-blade cutter head with a Shelix head, replaced the motor after it died with a 3ph, 3hp Leeson with a VFD, and just added a dust chute to it last night. I’ll cover the other changes in other entries. I got the inspiration for this chute from a member at the OWWM forum. His is beautifully done, and painted to match his 100. Now that I know this one works, in the coming weeks I’ll fill in the une...

Shop stuff #136: Roubo build part 7

09-22-2018 02:44 AM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Although I am spending all my time renovating the bathroom, I still have footage to edit of the Roubo bench build. This short one is getting the top built up to a thicker dimension because, well, that’s what I want. A bit of work and a lot of clamps. I really need more clamps, and better ones too. What a strange thing for a woodworker to say….lol. View on YouTube

How to dimension lumber with handtools #2: Reference Face

09-11-2018 01:56 AM by LastingBuild | 0 comments »

In this video, I establish the reference face. The reference face will determine all other dimensions of the board. I begin by placing the board cup side down for stability then I determine which direction of the grain. Once the board is positioned on the workbench I chamfer the opposing edge and begin to plane the board perpendicular to the grain along the length of the board. Once the board is relatively flat side to side, I test for twist with my winding sticks. If twist exists, I plane d...

Guitar Pedalboard Build

08-09-2018 12:51 AM by wrenchhead | 2 comments »

I made this homemade guitar pedalboard to clean up the cables and effects pedals I have. This was a fun woodworking project that only took a few hours over the weekend to complete. I used sapele wood and dovetail joinery to make this board. I installed a power inlet and a couple of 1/4” jacks to help with cord and cable management. I used General finishes Arm-R-Seal for a durable finish and added a .250 rubber feet so the pedal board doesn’t slide around. Thanks for watching ht...

Big cabinet for the new home #6: Its done! Wrap up, "Once you go black......"

08-03-2018 04:51 PM by Lalen | 6 comments »

Spread over three months, this thing is finally done. Quite the adventure and I learned a lot. Just wanted to share some final in-use pictures and thank those who gave input. One bit of feedback early on led me to the change of the doors from 6 top to bottom to 12 with a small upper and a lower door. I also put 3 hinges on the lower door to ensure it is well supported over time. (middle one is off center so it won’t interfere with the shelf.) For those who expressed interest in ...

Shop stuff #131: Roubo build part 3

07-25-2018 10:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

Facing the consequences of inexperience with working with slabs this big and a bit of carelessness I carry on and get the slabs ready to join them edge to edge. I decided by the end of it that since I have no real “plan” other than a picture in my head I will push on through and fix things a bit later. Long hot work but they finally get to the point where I can start joining the slabs in the next video. View on YouTube

Shop stuff #130: Work on the shop finished.

07-16-2018 08:15 PM by JimDaddyO | 3 comments »

Picking up where we left off last time. I build a torsion top to replace the old table and make some improvements to the function of the mitre saw. It also gives me a place for some future drawers. Then I get everything put back in place and the shop functional again. View on YouTube

Getting my tools ready #30: Grizzly 3 hp 220 15 inch planer

07-12-2018 05:13 AM by DocSavage45 | 15 comments »

Hey LJ’s,,Been contemplating the purchase of a more powerful planer. Been looking at Grizzly’s 15 inch series including the bare bones model. Looking at the web site last night I noticed that the 15 inch planers were not in stock but I could place an order. Whoa! Uncle Donald ’s tariffs are alive and well! 275 dollars ! The bare bones was in stock without the tarrif charge, so I bit the bullet and ordered This Machine: It means I have to build a movable ...
