    Would appreciate some input/advice/opinion from the more experienced; Just received a new Jorgensen vise, the 42012, to add to the new workbench, discussed initially here , and had a couple of questions on the installation/fitting side of things; Whilst the vise will, obviously, be able to...
  2. Hand Tools
    Hey guys, I'm venturing off into hand work. I've purchased a complete set of Narex beveled chisels and Mortise chisels, sharpening stones, sharpening system/guides, and have a Ryoba and Dozuki saws in the mail and plan on getting a couple of other western saws in the future. So I bought 2...
  3. Focus on the Workspace
    I figure i already know the answer to this question, however i will ask anyway just to see what others think. I am having to move back to my parents house for several various reasons, And i would like to set up my shop their however.. the garage is a no go, and the only real option i have is to...
  4. Finishing
    I'm trying to spray Target EM6000 with a Fuji 4-stage HVLP and am hoping someone with the same setup that has done it before can tell me how they set up to do this. I'm having trouble with the surface looking like it has stuff in it when wet and just sprayed. I'm guessing I'm seeing bubbles...

    I just bought an unused PM1500 from a place that sells PM and Jet, scratch and dents at hefty discounts. The savings were enough to offset some initial inconveniences and scratches. I started working my way through the setup manual and got hung up on Setting the Table Parallel to the Blade. I...

    I have the SkilSaw 5150 10Amp Circular saw.. I just acquired the rip guide attachment… at first I thought it's function was something else but I realized what's it's purpose was… and noticed my SkilSaw had slots/screw hole for such a guide. I even went online and someone had the same question I...
  7. Joinery
    My jointer and I haven't always been a perfect team. At first I was getting boards slightly bowed, then I was getting tapers. Frustrated I even bought a One Way multi gauge to align the straight knives on it because I couldn't come up with a better way to align the knives. I had all the knives...
  8. Focus on the Workspace
    Hey strangers! Haven't been on here in a real long time but I see a lot of the same guys from the last time I posted. I recently sold my house and bought another, relocating my shop from a 1 car under the house garage to an unfinished basement. The main thing I am concerned about is my shop...
  9. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    So… recently took the plunge and got a track saw. And ordered a parallel guide setup for it as well. Yee-haw ;) In the short term, I'll probably use a tape or rule and measure from the stops on the parallel guides. My concern is that with human error I'll end up with them ever so slightly...
  10. Power Tools, Hardware and Accessories
    I have read a couple posts that speak indirectly to this, but wanted to ask a more specific question. I just bought the new saw. Not factoring in the cast iron wings, which exacerbate this, the actual saw top is flat at the front, convex about 1/32nd of an inch over the blade, and about 1/16th...
  11. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've decided from a young age that I wanted to have a woodshop when I retire. Though I've done little actual woodwork over the years aside from carving now and then and some carpentry work. I'm looking for some books or resources to learn different skills/techniques for designing/building wood...
  12. Woodworking Skill Share
    I was lamenting the lack of instructions with my door panel set and decided to analyze and diagram my results. The rail and stile bit is reversable and this diagram should clear up confusion of which side goes where. I know folx say to cut rail ends first, but I like to run the stiles while...

    I am in the process of bringing a mid 80s Bridgewood 8" jointer back to life. I need to shim either the in-feed or the out-feed table to make them coplanar. The issue I'm having is there's no wiggle room to add shims. Anyone have suggestions? Thanks!

    What was your first experience with handplanes? Mine was about 7 years ago, I still wasn't doing anything woodworking like, and we had moved to a new apartment where the bathroom door wouldn't close since it was too tall and would hit the jamb (well- actually we mounted one of those...

    Raw materials I started out with a fairly hefty workbench from the house's previous owner, but it's in a place not appropriate for a woodshop, and it's not easy to move to where I do want my shop (the garage). Given that the space that it's in is my main art studio, and it's useful for that, I...

    He shoots, he SCORES ! HokieMojo was right: I should have been blogging this, from the get-go. So … playing catch-up … I'll re-create the series, and simply link to the old ones. And away we go ! http://lumberjocks.com/topics/23475 [no need to comment on anything you've already...

    Surface Preparation Ah… finally some woodworking at last. I don't really have any time or the mind space lately to focus on construction and creation much, and it felt like I was just collecting tools as of late. All with the preparation of 'one day' to be able to get to things. As it...

    a new cener piece for the shop..... needs a little TLC I posted about my good fortune scoring this early 80's Jet CTAS10 with Biesemeyer fence and 50" table…. Here she is…. just needs a little TLC I hit the top with course steel wool to get the flakey red rust off upon taking...
