Table Saw Mobile Workstation #3: Finally cutting some wood

05-07-2008 06:14 PM by Greg Wurst | 4 comments »

Having a busy schedule and a 2 yr old does not lend itself to significant shop time. I finally took a couple half days and got some work done. Working out of my garage with a requirement that cars have to go back in at the end of the day limits the amount of work I can bite-off at any one time. My intention was to get the birch ply first and build the chassis, then go back for the MDF and build the drawers, doors, top and back. However, when I get to the local HD they have one delaminated...

Crosscutus Sledi: specious genius

04-24-2008 09:16 AM by BarryW | 9 comments »

Ye of little faith. How is it possible to create a crosscut sled for a Craftman “professional” portable tablesaw?First, I’m not liking the fact Craftman called it a “professional” model since one has so many things to tighten and adjust to make it comfortably accurate. And then the two grooves are on just one side of the blade where on most “professional” models there is a machined groove on either side of the blade. So one has to put two runners f...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #2: Measuring, Cutting Diagrams, and Material Lists

04-23-2008 10:32 PM by Greg Wurst | 8 comments »

Well, now that I’m fairly comfortable with the layout and construction of the cabinet it was time to tear things apart and get some actual measurements and formulate a material list and plan of attack (much easier to tear virtual cabinets apart!). After saving the Sketchup plan as another file I start removing unnecessary and duplicate items and start putting-in some dimensions. The pictures should show most if not all of the dimensions I used, but I can’t say for sure since I...

Table Saw Mobile Workstation #1: I love it when a plan comes together...

04-21-2008 11:00 PM by Greg Wurst | 21 comments »

Awhile back Wood Magazine had an article on building a mobile outfeed table that would fit over your table saw. Since I need all the space in my garage I can get, I went ahead and built one that would fit over my table saw to give me some much needed work space and a handy outfeed table. I thought this was pretty spiffy and a great use of space. As I always do I look at the latest project posts on Lumberjocks looking for inspiration for my next project. Whilst browsing I came ac...

Squirrel Ferris-Wheel feeder

04-21-2008 02:08 AM by pappyjohn | 6 comments »

Hello All, Here’s a couple of photo’s on the upcoming Ferris-Wheel Feeder for the Squirrels. This set of eight seats will be attached to a rotating ring with hangers for the seats to rotate around. The idea is once the squirrel gets on then they will rotate to the bottom. If they climb up the seats then they’ll continue to rotate down to the bottom of the revolving wheel. The size of the seats are approx. 6 1/2, 2 1/2, by 1/14they are made of some small pieces o...

My first REAL cabinetmaking project. #1: The Question, The Plan, and The First Problem.

04-17-2008 10:52 PM by TroutGuy | 7 comments »

My first real cabinetmaking project started as a simple “Can you make a new frame for the medicine cabinet mirror, dear?”, from my wife. “No problem!”, I replied. The time I have spent here at LJ has convinced me that I not only CAN do it, but that I SHOULD do it! In fact, I SHOULD make a whole new medicine cabinet – a bigger, better medicine cabinet! [Insert Tim Taylor ‘grunt’ here.] I took some measurements, did a little cypherin’, spent a few hours in TurboCAD and voila, I had ‘The P...

I FINALLY BOUGHT A TABLESAW! :-D #3: Beginning The Negotiations....

04-17-2008 10:13 PM by Mark D. | 12 comments »

Ok, so I called Woodcraft and Jet, the people at Jet were far easier to talk to and more appologetic of the situation, but regardelss, neither were able to offer me any good solution… So, not wanting to miss out on the price I got, and knowing that Woodcraft has a brick and mortar store here in Nevada (albeit it’s an 8 hour drive), I started thinking…. I called a local vendor here in Vegas to see if they could match the pricing… First I spoke with a customer care re...

I FINALLY BOUGHT A TABLESAW! :-D #2: Today is a very sad, sad day.... :-(

04-16-2008 11:29 PM by Mark D. | 6 comments »

I just called Jet to get a more definite delivery date so I could shuffle my work week around to take a day off to receive the shipment… I got some sad news. The Deluxe XACTA Saws are back ordered until early to mid June :-( The dust collector is back ordered until mid to late May… Looks like I’m in a long line to get these guys, I even tried to see if upgrading to a 5hp 1phase unit would speed up the process but to no avail. The saw blade and dust collection hose will a...

I FINALLY BOUGHT A TABLESAW! :-D #1: I FINALLY BOUGHT A TABLE SAW! :-D

04-16-2008 01:07 AM by Mark D. | 13 comments »

So, after working with a few battery powered tools and some very basic hand tools, I convinced my girlfriend that I could be much more productive, efficient, and accurate with a table saw. The only thing missing now was money… Being low on funds and “in the right place at the right time” I was given an old and very poorly maintained Delta Contractor saw from a friend who’s father recently passed away. In my excitement to get it back to the house and clean it up(th...
