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 | 0 comments »

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...

Foley Belsaw 435 Scroll Saw base upgrade

03-11-2019 12:04 AM by That_Weird_Uncle | 0 comments »

I picked up a late 80’s Belsaw scroll saw for 50 bucks on craigslist. I lost my before pic so i nabbed this one just so you can see the base. My saw needed some electrical work the hosing was cracked and i like to add a modular momentary switch socket so you can simply plug a footswitch into it and go if you want to use that instead of an on/off switch. Ill be doing a seperate update on the saw refurb. The other big gripe i had with this saw was the base is made of two large piec...

Adding LED Lights to Your Tools

02-11-2019 07:13 PM by Matt Snyder | 7 comments »

Having good focused lights is essential on many tools and often your shop lights just don’t cut it. Adding an LED light on an adjustable neck is cheap and easy and, with a little modification, you won’t have to use up any more outlets. I bought four of these lights on Amazon for $10 each They have a magnetic base so they can attach to your tools and give you the light you need where you need it. Modifying them to use your tool’s power is fairly simple. First cut off the plug a...

A little late to start a Xmas present but there were too many other projects getting in the way. This may end up being a Valentines present by the time I’m finished but I’m sure my wife will understand. Credit to Judy Roberts for the plans. I just started this today and will hopefully post regularly as progress is made. Thanks in advance for your comments.

How I made #11: Floor Lamp with LED Light

10-26-2018 12:23 PM by WoodenWorldDenic | 6 comments »

It all started by asking myself how to use a walnut board with a natural edge, which left from some other project. I wanted to put a plexiglas between two such boards, but I later changed my mind and decided to use only one board, because it seemed visually to me more tempting. For the light source I used a LED strip that illuminates the side of the plexiglass, giving an interesting visual effect. The ability to adjust the intensity and color of the light is convenient for obtaining the appro...

Ah yes, the old debate….Tails first..vs..Pins first…...Dungeon Shop goes Pins first. So.. My bevel square. There is a small combo square laying there as well. bevel is set to the angle I use for dovetails(need to write it down, sometime..) Where the groove comes through, one side of the pin is straight. Covers the groove. Then I work from each edge towards the center, laying out a few pins. had two backsaws to use, one was the “Veteran” and the other was...
