Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)… Bit Too Many Bullets… Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. This blog is going to be short and sweet as it was just too hard to get my teeth into and swallow. While this may not be in the realms of woodworking, other than Georgie (Washingto...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #18: Blue Hands #2.

02-07-2020 11:08 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 20 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. I held back this post after posting Blue hands #1 just to see if the rice trick worked on a Samsung phone… Looks like the Samsung phone reacted more to rice paddies than rice alone. If you are forced to volunteer to clean the dunny, ensure you do ...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #14: Blue Hands #1.

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. If you decide to install a keyed lock on your dunny (a toilet as opposed to a bathroom) window, most people decide to place all the gear on the window sill. The fear of being attacked from the window behind while squatting on the loo, is NOT Stupid...

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. This stupid idea was inspired by, My previous stupidity of loading up my DP tabletop. Izzy Swan’s dexterous use of his cordless drill. I thought with the weight of my DP’s box and sliding tables I could facilitate the movement by the...

Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)... #11: RTFM…

01-13-2020 12:50 PM by LittleBlackDuck | 10 comments »

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas/Buys of the past (so far)…. Nearly every woodworking article I read that talks about wax, refers to Johnson’s Paste Wax. Ever willing to plagiarise, I ventured down to Bunnings (Australia’s local hardware store) to buy a can/bottle/tube or whatever it comes in (all the ...

Boys and Girls, We all like to brag about our achievements and sweep our failures under the carpet… well, my carpet has run out of space so I’ve decided to group my failures and mistakes under Stupid Ideas of the past (so far)…. Created these ”buffing wheels” out of paint rollers to use on the lathe, The one at the front has some splattering of wax that took me minutes to distribute in patches. The other 2 have never seen any action. They were created for a Jet mini-l...

Safety (or the lack thereof) #3: DADO BLADES CAN'T CUT 1 INCH OF HARDWOOD IN ONE PASS

08-18-2013 12:30 AM by PASs | 14 comments »

I’m a BONEHEAD.I like my Dado blades.But they have their limitations.Especially pulling the blade through on your radial arm saw.Ripping a 3/4 inch dado 1 inch deep in a piece of hardwood tougher than oak (I have mallets made from this stuff) exceeds their abilityWhen you try anyway the chippers decide to group together in a show of rebellion and the teeth get mad enough to fly off the handle…er…blade. I knew better.I was in a rush.The fix was $75 at saw stop getting new ...

DON'T BE AN IDIOT, A WARNING

05-20-2008 11:21 AM by jockmike2 | 43 comments »

Do you all know that denatured alcohol burns, invisibly. I mean you can’t see it burn. Well a little blue flame maybe if you’re at the right angle. Well let me tell you from the beginning. I’m on quite a few meds from a broken back, diabeties and a few other ailments. Needless to say my wife does’nt even want me in my shop, let alone playing with power tools and chemicals. Most of the time I have my wits about me and do just fine until I get tired or in pain, thats whe...

Bandsaw's bite

08-08-2007 12:39 AM by DataDoc | 22 comments »

No matter how careful you think you are, when you feel the thunk of the blade as it catches on the bone means it’s too late. I reached to brush away a cutoff and got my thumb snagged in the blade.
