Shop stuff #169: Mobile Home Skirting My Way

08-24-2019 01:38 PM by JimDaddyO | 1 comment »

I have not been releasing a lot of videos lately. I’ve been too busy. A huge job overview and how I did it, and the reasons why. I hope the information comes in handy for someone. Small homes are becoming more popular. I have lived here for 17 years and we have made improvements on a continuing basis. Just like you would on a traditional home. View on YouTube

Fixing my obsolete ryobi miter saw blade guard

08-19-2019 01:08 PM by moco27 | 0 comments »

I’ve been using an old ryobi ts1340 10 inch miter saw for years. It’s lightweight and dependable. I had a friend of mine try and change the blade while I was working on the roof. He didn’t know what he was doing and took things apart that shouldn’t have been apart for a blade change. He didn’t get it back together right, made a cut and cut off the bottom half of my blade guard. The saw was dangerous even after the guard was properly placed on the saw since...

Shop stuff #168: 1910 Disston rip saw

08-09-2019 02:35 PM by JimDaddyO | 5 comments »

Sometimes you just get lucky. I found this one at a yard sale and was unsure of it’s date of manufacture, but I find out over the course of bringing it back to usable condition. This beauty was in pretty good shape for its age and now it can get back to doing what it was meant to do for another long while. View on YouTube

08-07-2019 01:38 PM by bandit571 | 5 comments »

Ok..turned the frame over, cleaned out around where the King bolt’s threads come up through….and soaked those for a day….Knee rehab was rough…came home and took a nap…..Next morning,,,tried again….hmmm,getting fed up….grabbed the hammer, and hit right on the head of that bolt, 6-8 times. Had to drive the tip of the BIG screwdriver into the slot, added a pair of visegrips to assist…Uuuuummpf With a loud ” Creeack” bolt came loose...

Mitre Box, a rehab story #3: New wheel, still soaking

08-05-2019 11:35 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

New wheel was installed, and put to work.. PITA to change out. Plastic tub for parts was brought down to the shop.. got the stock rests all cleaned up, and shiny…which left two pointy screws to do.. Called stock holders, they have a pointy end, that will grip a board into place, while you saw away..Into the tub these go. The 2 catches from the tops of the guide assemblies, are cleaned up, and re-installed, they also have a patent date stamped into them “10-5-09”...

Mitre Box, a rehab story #2: 2 soakings, new decking..wire troubles

08-05-2019 12:37 PM by bandit571 | 2 comments »

OK…Remove the extra deck…and tossed it away, took the mitre box outside to sit in the sunshine for a while The Oringinal decking. Found a metal disc in the deck…Also got a better look at the stock rests… These are also OEM items, they have, instead of a folded up end, just a small pin, that keeps the rests from being pulled out too far, and getting lost… Now, about that metal disc in the deck….since this version of the mitre box does not use a ro...

Slant Top Desk Build

07-30-2019 08:06 PM by MPython | 2 comments »

I posted a blog entry earlier about gluing up thin panels for a frame-and-panel back for a slant top desk I’m building. The back is complete and I’ve been working on the web frame for the drawers and the interior of the desk. I’ve cut and fitted the drawer dividers and runners. I have joined the top to the sides with half blind dovetails and I’ve glued up the panel for the writing surface. Installing the writing surface was a challenge. It is joined to the sides with h...

Matching Wood Stain & Finish (using a new generation of stains)

07-28-2019 01:45 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 1 comment »

I learned a lot from a professional finisher recently when he taught me how to match stains and finishes for this project. I had a customer bring me a broken part and wanted me to make a replacement to match. The woodworking was the easy part for me – the finish was the hard part. My wood finisher has been in his field for decades and he didn’t want me to pursue finishing from the “old ways”, but taught me using the new generation of finishes using acrylics. This...

Outdoor Wood Furniture & Wood Rot

07-20-2019 01:53 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I recently repaired a picnic table that was suffering from a bad case of wood rot. The table had some mild issues on the body, but the top was not built to withstand the outdoor elements. See how this came apart and how I replaced parts so they would last much longer and resist wood rot. Video – https://youtu.be/DyaP0ktA8zg
