Installing 2 Brands of Urethane Bandsaw Tires on a Shopsmith Bandsaw: Sous Vide Everything?

02-22-2021 10:09 PM by MyGrowthRings | 0 comments »

I finally got around to installing new urethane tires on a couple of my Shopsmith bandsaw, but just to make it fun I decided to test two brands: The Blue Max and Polytech. I’ll be the first to admit that this was a totally different experience from installing stock rubber tires and I look forward to responding to your Questions, Comments & Cheapshots in the mid-week follow-up, so be sure to type something in the video comment section. Here’s the video:

Installing Carter "Upgrade" Blade Guides on a Shopsmith Bandsaw. Are They Worth it?w

02-22-2021 09:47 PM by MyGrowthRings | 0 comments »

I just installed Carter Products’ ball bearing blade guides on my Shopsmith bandsaw and am curious if you’ve done the same and what your impressions are. The retrofit was incredibly easy to do, but I did have an issue with the head of the guide wanting to rotate on the shaft that mounts it to the saw. I posted a video on Youtube of the process:

Journey into Woodturning #44: Black Walnut bowl

02-16-2021 03:12 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

I have not turned a large black walnut bowl and this 9×4 blank was my opportunity. When I started this project, I had a rounded bottom bowl with a cylindrical side. As I turned the bowl, I started to see some sort of dividing line where the round or curve went to straight up. I picked up a set of beading tools and thought this would be a great occasion to use it. Once the bead was established on the side, I quickly determined the rim needed to mimic the bead. I think the band of clean...

Build a Keyboard Tray, Office Organization Solutions, Zoom Video Conference Setup Tips

02-13-2021 07:56 PM by WoodshopTherapy | 0 comments »

I packed a lot into the video I just published today about office organization. I made a keyboard tray and shared some woodworking tips to help viewers learn about woodworking. This keyboard tray really frees up a lot of desk space. I also mounted my monitor and laptop on a stand to free up more space and get my video camera set at the right height for Zoom calls. I included some tips on how to setup your video and lighting for Zoom calls as well. I hope you find this useful and I ask th...

Shop stuff #203: Camber a plane iron

02-12-2021 09:56 PM by JimDaddyO | 2 comments »

I use my #5 almost exclusively as a fore plane. I decided to up it’s usability for the job by putting a camber on the iron. Not too much of one, a 10” radius seems about right to check it out. I also changed the bevel angle to 35 degrees to give it a bit more strength. The same angle that Chris Schwarz uses. I am pleased with my first attempt at this, the plane works a treat!

Journey into Woodturning #43: Clock Challenge

02-09-2021 03:15 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

I have plenty of projects planned and one was a clock. I was watching a video from Bluey and he mentioned the Wooden-It-Be-Nice channel challenge for the month of January, was a clock. So, I moved the clock project to the front of the list. I have to admit, I liked the look of Bluey’s clock and thought I would put my spin on it (pun intended). I searched through the scrap wood under the lathe and I believe I put together a nice combo of wood colors. I placed all the grain running in the...

Journey into Woodturning #42: Bloodwood Platter

02-02-2021 03:07 PM by MovingChips | 0 comments »

When I started this project, I had a feeling the wood might be very lustrous. I did not take into account the hardness. I ended up sharpening my gouge 3 or 4 times and honestly, I think it needed to be sharpened more often. I muscled through the rough turning and on the final pass, I would sharpen to get that clean cut. There was no plan for the design of the platter, other then I wanted to have a semi flat surface and a rim. The rim I’d been kicking around in my head was a wide flat rim, ...

Shop stuff #202: The first guitar in the new shop

01-31-2021 08:04 PM by JimDaddyO | 0 comments »

I put the word out that I do some guitar work. It didn’t take long for a young lady to respond. It was her mom actually. The girl is just taking up guitar. She is talented in other instruments too. The guitar came in sticky, with a dried out finger board and action that made it difficult to play. It left clean, conditioned, and easy to play. Which, after all, is the point.
