Decked Out Ridgid Model R4511 Table Saw #2: Redesigned Mobile Base

12-24-2011 07:01 AM by Paul Stoops | 25 comments »

The Herculift mobile base supplied with the saw worked well, but it wasted a lot of space under the cabinet: In addition, the heavy (~200#) granite top and cast iron mechanism made the saw feel top heavy and somewhat unstable when moving it, due to the small caster footprint. As others have done, my solution to this condition was to redesign the mobile base with a wider caster footprint: The wider footprint distributed the weight much more evenly and made the saw feel very stabl...

birdsmouth router bits

01-07-2015 12:35 AM by Blake Haskins | 5 comments »

I recently discovered on YouTube these bits that are called birds mouth router bits. They make 6,8,12 sided boxes by cutting a notch of a certain angle in the board down its length. Once routed, the board is cut to length dependent on the shapes diameter. The interlock makes glueing and clamping incredibly easy. I got a set of three for $40

Wine bottle balancers #1: How to bore the balancer hole for a level bottle

11-16-2012 01:01 AM by Jim Jakosh | 14 comments »

Today I modified my balancer drill fixture in many ways. It was originally built to bore a 1 5/16” hole at 45 degrees through the wine bottle balancer, but it had a few problems. first, the Forstner bit would twist and lock up before it got through the board. The bit got smoking hot and expanded in the hole and did not retract easily. And the bottle did not balance level! First I milled out the bottom of the fixture 1” deep for a sacrificial piece of wood so the drill is alwa...

DIY Cyclone Dust Collector

07-18-2009 06:40 AM by SimonSKL | 51 comments »

Inspired by Jeff’s (Jcoulam) homemade cyclone dust collector, I decided to make one just like his. This blog is written to show how I built it. At a local home center, I purchased one 8”x24 metal duct, a 5-ft 2” PVC pipe, a 2” PVC elbow, and two 2” couplers for about $18. The first step is to make the cone. I tried to twist the metal sheet into a cone but just couldn’t make it look right and managed to get a small cut in my hand in the process. Ou...

The 10 cent labyrinth challenge

02-26-2011 02:28 AM by Stevinmarin | 17 comments »

This maze will drive people nuts! I built this project based on a plan in a book called Zany Wooden Toys That Whiz, Spin, Pop, and Fly. I was thrilled when the author, Bob Glisdorf granted me permission to make a video using one of his designs. Check out the book. It’s really cool. Read more about this project and Bob's book here.

Templates #1: Push Block/Hand Plane/Saw - Handles

02-20-2011 07:58 AM by dakremer | 12 comments »

Hey guys. Just fooling around tonight with my new drawing tablet. (FIRST PICTURE) I drew a proportioned handle template for a hand plane (Stanley). It is not to scale though. You can scale it, print it out, and see what size works best for you. I made these templates for people who want to make their own handle for their hand planes; or a handle for a push-block. I have the JPEG file on my computer, so if you don’t know how to save the pic (to your computer) from here, message me ...
