Dust Collection Foot Switch Kick-Start

12-30-2018 03:32 PM by steliart | 12 comments »

Dust Collection foot switch kick start A few years back, I purchased a dust collection remote control which was supposed to be for ALL type of DC as Woodcraft advertised. Unfortunately is not for all types of DC. My DC has a magnetic switch thus the remote system will stop the DC but it will not start the motor, so every time I had to switch in on manually bending down to the motor switch and to stop it I just used the RC by pressing it twice, one time to stop the DC motor and a second tim...

DIY Knee kick switch mod

06-29-2012 09:14 PM by rance | 9 comments »

A good friend of mine lets me use his shop. One of the first things that I did was fashion a paddle for the On/Off switch. Here’s a general picture of the switch on his TS: Feel free to ignore that electrical tape holding the front cover on. :) Hey, it works. A hole is needed to access the ON switch without raising the paddle. And a finger joint type of hinge: A side view of how it was mounted underneath the table top. I began with a 2×4 screwed in place from the e...

Router Table by Julie #7: Completing the Drawers

03-21-2014 05:40 PM by ~Julie~ | 9 comments »

After getting the switch installed in the top “drawer” area, I needed then to make two drawers below that, on the left hand side. I had two drawers that were part of an old entertainment unit that we threw out. I kept some parts including two drawers as well as drawer slides. The drawers were too wide for my router table: So, I taped the drawer slides into the cabinet and measured the width I would need for my drawers to fit: Then I cut the drawer, allowing for the side ...

Upgraded Shutoff Switch on SawStop

03-24-2017 11:20 PM by Garth | 3 comments »

I just upgraded my 1960’s table saw to a SawStop. I have only made a few cuts with it; however, I realized I really missed something on my old table saw. I did a rip cut and was standing off to the right of the blade and held the board down. I then had to reach way over the far left end of the saw to turn it off. On my old saw, I had placed a large shutoff in the center, where I could easily shut if off with my knee. I got used to turning off the saw with my knee and could keep my ...

Mahogany Shop Dust Extractor / Air Filter

02-27-2017 10:14 PM by heldercruz100 | 1 comment »

View on YouTube As we all know woodworking involves a lot of sanding, and that makes a lot of dust in the air. So yesterday I found an old extractor, it was from my growroom but still works. I made a box with joinery, painted the fan black and as usual gave it a mahogany finish, I think it makes a nice contrast, what do you think??

Delta 46-715 Lathe Refurbish Project #4: Indexing and Controls

01-08-2015 03:20 AM by Sawdustonmyshoulder | 1 comment »

After a battle with a head and chest cold and a woodworkers club meeting, I’m back working on the lathe. I found that at least someone is reading this blog. I heard from one of our Lumberjocks, Fred Borden, over the weekend. He has bought one of these little Delta jewels with trashed Reeves drives. Fred is persuing a little different tack on restoring his 46-715. I hope he will blog his journey and give us another option for these lathes. Well, I have to report Fred is a great guy...

Goodell Pratt 125 Bench Lathe #3: Motorin' - or How to wire a 3 speed AC motor.

01-06-2013 06:40 AM by Woodknack | 0 comments »

You’re motoringWhat’s your price for flightIn finding mister rightYou’ll be alright tonight My choices were between a single speed, 1/3 HP, 1750 RPM motor or a three speed, 1/4 HP, 1050 RPM motor. Wow, 3 speeds! The 1/3 has a very short shaft meaning I could only fit one pulley meaning I would have to slide the motor to each lathe pulley (or I could have used a jackshaft but I was too stupid to know it). The 1/4 has a longer shaft to fit a step pulley and did I mentio...
