Getting the Most out of your Shopsmith #2: Using the Shopsmith 5-Piece Safety Kit (Push Stick, Fence Straddler, Featherboard, Push Blocks)

06-25-2020 07:36 PM by MrGrowthRings | 0 comments »

I’ve written a fair amount about the Shopsmith Safety Kit on my Blogger blog, but while I’m at it I figure that this blog deserves a little attention too. I recently posted a video on my “MyGrowthRings” Youtube channel on the use of Shopsmith’s Shopsmith 5-Piece Safety Kit, which has been a standard part of every Mark V sold since the mid-1980’s. That hit includes an excellent Push Stick, a Fence Straddler, for pushing narrow boards through the saw, a Feath...

Super-Gripper shopmade pusher al-a Grr-ripper.

09-02-2016 06:58 PM by CrazyRussianWoodShop | 2 comments »

Hello colleagues, I was flattered with the responses to my posted project Super-Gripper shopmade pusher (it went to TOP 3). So, figured I would elaborate a little on this jig. It is an awesome pusher for the repetitive cuts, especially on the very narrow planks. It makes the task safe, easy and easily repeatable . It also significantly cuts back on the fine dust that flies to you face during the ripping operation, especially if you have a dust collector hooked up to the saw (the lower cham...

Blogging instead of Woodworking #22: Favorite Plastic Shop Gadgets

06-28-2016 09:15 PM by Douglas | 0 comments »

I did a little review of a few plastic gadgets I have and use in my shop. I cover the GluBot, the Preppin’ Weapon, and the Grr-ripper. These all fall under the category of “should have turned out to be junky plastic crap, but weren’t”. Let me know what you think…

Push sticks - The good, the bad, and the ugly (but also good)

12-03-2012 04:08 AM by JSB | 5 comments »

Everyone has their opinion on push sticks. I have read some arguments in forums on what push stick is better. Bottom line if they attribute to more safety then use them. Each situation may require a different push stick. Here are a few of the push sticks I have in my shop. The Good:Recently Metthias Wandel posted his favorite push sticks on his website so I thought I would give them a try. They have become my go to sticks for small (less than ~15” long) pieces. They are the red stick...

Lumber Scores! #3: Log to Lumber - Milling small Ash logs

Last year I got a pile of Ash logs from the city when they were taking down beetle infested trees in my neighborhood.I’ve been using bits of it here and there for small projects and barbecues.I’m doing a small table for my lady and have taken photos of my process for milling firewood sized chunks into thin slats for a rustic tabletop. Here be the log:I use the jointer to square two sides. All I need is two flat and square reference surfaces to register against the fence and ta...

Virtual Designs in Sketchup #8: The Inevitible Push Block

08-07-2011 10:45 AM by rance | 10 comments »

  Of all of the jigs in the woodshop, the push block or push stick is usually one of the first that is built. I have qualifications that govern a utilitarian project like this. For one, I rarely purchase materials since scraps can often suffice. Other parameters are to make minimal cuts and processing since these are not that critical. I much prefer wooden push blocks over the plastic ones I’ve seeen. The plastic ones(besides having to be purchased) seem to not grip the wood as ...

From wood butchery to wood workery #2: Fortunate Accidents | getting things done

04-11-2010 04:13 AM by Woodbutchery | 3 comments »

I am not a wood professional. I don’t aspire to be one. Woodworking is more creative release than handyman ability, or craft. While I hope to learn how to craft wood, I do not stay up nights pining for the day I can make the perfect hand cut dovetail joinery, but that’s the game I play and my involvement with this so far. I remember once upon a time where I just wanted to have a decent tone on the flute and would worry about the ornamentation and “other” stuff late...
