  1. can't stop us

    -i was a bit depressed when it came down to time to eat before midnight before surgery & i still had not attached or sanded the seat slats…but, apparently, that can be done (albeit slowly) with one hand. I know this is no different than the other benches; it just felt like more of an...
  2. Box

    This was my first box. Top made from maple, side cherry and foot made of oak.
  3. Curly Maple Joystick

    Here is a project that I had fun working with. This was built for a customer to work on his Playstation 2 console game system. The joystick and buttons are real arcade controls and are connected to a Playstation game pad. All the buttons have a shop cut veener inserted and the joystick top...

    I am having problems with my blade tracking. I can get it dialed in (centered on the tire), then once I release the quick tension lever, then reapply the tension, the blade jumps forward about 1/4" when it is turned on. I have also kept the blade tensioning on. When I start it up the next...

    I have installed a brand new 1" 3 tpi steel blade on my MM16 bandsaw for the first time ever. Despite spending an inordinate amount of time trying to get proper tracking, the blade significantly skips or "pulses" forward towards me after each revolution in the area of the weld. On each...

    I've got a 14" Grizzly Bandsaw (G0555LANV) which has been running fine. I finally (after 4 dang months) received the riser block kit (T25554) and got it installed. I put on a new 105" 1/2" Highland Woodworking wood slicer blade, ran some cuts, no issues. But I cannot for the life of me get the...

    Hello! I have had a Wen 10" Band saw for a while but have had an issue with the blade tracking. When I tighten the tracking knob to a certain point it "pops" and slips out. I tried cleaning the threads with a tap and die set but the issue still persists. Am I going to have to drill it out and...
  8. Woodworking Skill Share
    I've read hundreds of posts but here I am asking my first question. I'm no experienced woodworker but have probably changed the blade on my 14" Rikon bandsaw about 100 times at least. Am now on my 2nd Timberwolf 3/16 blade … first one didn't track, and this one doesn't either. Timberwolf was...

    Hi folks - So I have a 9" grizzly 0803 bandsaw. Have been using it with a 3/8" blade for some time, but got a larger BS, so wanted to switch the 9" to a narrow blade. I've tried putting on a 1/4" and a 1/8" blade, and I'm having the same problem with both. I can get the blade to track in the...

    So, a while back I bought a 14" bandsaw for $40 off of Craigslist. A minimal investment I thought. It needs some cleaning up and the base is a little beat up. I bought and installed new polyurethane tires. I also got a couple of Timberwolf blades and a link belt. Now not really knowing much...

    I purchased a nice selection of older Sears Craftsman woodworking tools several years back. I do not know exactly how old these tools are, but I'm thinking at least from the 80's, if not older. I was able to obtain the manuals for all of them, and any missing parts. The Belt and Disc Sander...

    I have my bandsaw tuned up just right. I can resaw 8" Hard Maple with almost no blade drift. The wheels are coplanar, and I can go from 1/4" to 3/4" blades with a quick adjustment of tension and guide bearings. But I can't get a 1/8" blade to stay on - it quickly wanders off the front edge of...
