How to Buy a Wood Lathe & Related Tools

05-17-2020 03:10 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I recently met with Mike Waldt, a Woodturner from the UK and we made a video together to provide advice about how to buy a wood lathe. This was our first time putting together a video where we have a discussion about tools, so let us know what you think so we can figure out if this is a useful format for viewers. Thanks.

Workshop operational tips. #19: In a Tight Scrape.

05-14-2020 12:42 AM by LittleBlackDuck | 8 comments »

Boys and Girls, Just in case you find yourself in a tight spot, this little gizmo may get you out in a scrape. I needed a scraper small enough to scrape the inside of the windows of one of my model toys a while back, after finding that sandpaper was altering the general shape too much. I used the “normal” card scraper sharpening technique to prepare one of my paint scrapers.In operation on pine, walnut, hard maple,(actually that was a lie as I went and bought a new one to conve...

In gathering the parts need for the DIY worksharp parts and in carving the Tormek jig SVG-38 was essential . I could purchase it, but my late dads voice kept bugging me ” ... have you tried it ”. So here I am venturing to the challenge of making my own SVG-38. I started of by designing...

Getting the side panels finished up. Also giving suggestions on alternative things you may want to do as I go along. Yup, it’s fancier than need be for its intended purpose, but hey, why not? I’m enjoying the process.

DIY circular saw guide

05-02-2020 01:09 AM by woodify | 1 comment »

Thanks to social distancing I was not able to help the home center employee measure the cuts for my 6 sheets of plywood. Instead of risking the employee making inaccurate cuts I took them home whole. I made a circular saw guide to help make accurate cuts. I should have made one years ago. It’s much easier than using a straight edge with a circular saw.

Of Tool Cabinets, Chewing Gum and Sealng Wax #19: Sucking Sawdust

04-22-2020 12:09 AM by Bill Berklich | 4 comments »

I use my RAS… a lot. For the longest time I’ve had a wheelbarrow behind it where most of the sawdust lands and it is a lot of sawdust. Almost as much as my table saw. I’ve seen several LJ’ers and Youtubers with various RAS dust collection methods and decided that I like the fence port style best. I start out by collecting scraps then turning the inside of a 2.5” Sched 40 pipe to fit the vac hose. Then using scrap I built a box about 9” Deep by 12” Wide Skinned top an...
