  2. My Thumb was DUMB! ... and it led to this...

    My thumb was dumb! Ok, it started out like all these things do… I was tired… I was reaching the end of the day… WHAM! My thumb was dumb! I'm a big fan of Matt Vanderlist (Matt's Basement Workshop), and "Fingers and thumbs, don't be dumb" came instantly to mind when I got REALLY lucky and...

    One of my router table has a safety guard and another has a fulcrum pin. My twin mini router tables have nothing but emptiness (think naked). With this new versatile shop-made addition all my router tables will feature everything I need for accuracy, safety as well as dust collection. (I hope I...
  4. Miniature Lifeguard Tower for Garden

    My sister Karen has a good sized flower garden. Many years ago, she bought a miniature lifeguard tower for her garden. She puts a doll on the tower to watch over her garden. After many years, Mother Nature took her toll on the tower. Rather than replace it, I decided to build a new one. I...
  5. Walnut Belt Guard

    This is a guard I made for my newest addition to the barn shop- a 12" Craftsman band saw. I made it out of scraps of walnut I had laying abound and a piece of 1/8 walnut plywood. I doweled all the joints because they were end grain and added 2- 1/4"-20 threaded inserts for mounting to the...
  6. Keepsake box

    My son is going away to school this fall and wanted me to work with him this summer on a project for his sweetheart. This is the result. He made this keepsake box just from scrap in my woodshop. We got the basic idea for the box in a "The Woodsmith Shop" episode. He used scraps of plain white...
  7. New Guards for an Old Bandsaw

    I recently restored a 1952 10" bandsaw. It was pretty sad with a lot of rust, missing blade guards and just in need of lots of TLC. When I was finished restoring, it ran very well but I was still left with the issue of missing blade guards. I decided to build new guards from wood. Construction...
  8. Basic Cross Cut Sled with Guard

    Pretty simple, not much to share except: Lexan beats the pants off acrylic/plexiglass as far as toolability goes. Large scrap pieces can be purchased on ebay for a fraction of retail The thick hard maple fences rock my socks off and are still perfectly square after being dropped off...

  10. Carrousel Table Saw Blade Guard

    If like me you're one of those who don't use the factory blade guard at the table saw, you will probably be interested by my new spinning table saw blade guard. You only need two 1/4" Plexiglas strips, double-side tape, masking tape, a 1/4" bolt or pin, a block of hardwood, a washer and a knob...
  11. Jointer Guard

    First Photo: The completed guard installed. Second Photo: The spring mechanism. The dowel has a small notch to hold the spring in this position. The plywood (I think) is 3/4" maple scrap. The dowel is 1/4" oak. I bought this jointer at a garage sale for $100. He built the shop-built...
  12. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    When I built my V-Drum Sander a couple of months ago ( http://lumberjocks.com/projects/29085 ), one thing that was missing was a guard covering the link belt. Though there were never any injuries, it never felt very safe … and if it doesn't feel safe, it is not. Took care of that problem this...
  13. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I've decided to finally get some sort of dust collecting blade guard for my PM66 tablesaw. Ive tried making one and there were durability issues but definate improvements in collection. My shop is in the basement so dust collection is very important. I have 4" lines for my D.C. Both the Shark...
  14. Marketplace Classifieds
    I put a Shark Guard on my Unisaw, and so I have the factory splitter/guard assembly that I'd like to pass on to a good home. The saw was brand new when I bought it off CL a year or so ago (long story), so the guard is brand new, never been assembled. As far as I can tell, it is complete with all...
  15. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    Hello. I am looking at moving to 8 inch on a jointer and was looking at the Powermatic. It looks like a great tool but fine woodworking pans the guard. Now safety is very important and I was wondering if anyone has any experience with this guard or if there is a fix.
  16. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    We have 2 older 12" Ridgid table saws (MS1250LZ & MS1250LZA) and both have problems with the blade guard - the washers, etc., wear out and the guard won't slide up without help, which is not really safe while you're operating the saw. The real problem is that the parts for that guard have been...

  18. Safety in the Woodworking Shop
    I posted this as a project yesterday, but thought I'd follow up in the safety section as that is really the more pertinent location. Anyways, you can link to the project for all the construction details as well as a link to the very thorough resource from another woodworker used to base mine...

    I just received a brand new Ray Iles mortise chisel that I purchased off Ebay. The listing didnt have a size mentioned and was a buy it now for $40 plus $10 shippling on a $67 chisel so I took a chance. Alas I already had the 3/16,1/4 and 5/16 so I will sell or trade the chisel for what I have...
  20. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I like to make thing to help me cut wood, one way or another. I do a lot of resawing, and I get wood from a local saw mill. It measures at least 6". My Delta band saw won't quite handle it by a little bit, so I built my own riser block and guard. I also had an issue with blade lengths. See...
