  1. The biggest project I have ever had..

    This is my first stab at something this large ….... and made to sit on! I used plans that someone posted on one of the forums for a Miller? chair. They were copied from a magazine, Popular Mechanics I think, but left out some detail… at least detail I needed. But the pictures worked… the next...

  3. Framed Post Cards

    I purchased some post cards while back in New Orleans that mimic the old advertising labels from years past. I had some old reclaimed swamp oak that I got from a hardwood supplier that they used as stickers to sit there lumber on, so I used it to frame these. They are mortise and tennon...
  4. Cutting Boards

    I have always like the design of these edge grained cutting boards so I jumped in and made 25 of them and they are all sold allready. A mix of Black Walnut, A. Mahogany, Peruvian Walnut, Hard Maple, Padauck, Babinga and White Oak. My bandsaw took a pernament vacation so I had to use a Jig Saw...

    The pulley tension is controlled by a lever, and you're not supposed to move the lever unless the motor is on. So how do you change a belt? The manual says "work the belt off the drive (motor) spindle", which is impossible because of the tension. Thanks manual! Guess this is a Reeves drive, I...

    I have an old sears craftsman router (model # 315.175050) whose variable speed seems to have failed. I get only 40v on the white lead in pic1 going into the coils at max speed. As spares are not available I'd like to bypass the speed control. I am assuming that if i connect the brown lead...

    Foley Belsaw owners - have any of you converted your machines for variable feed speed? I was looking last week at how a pulley connected to the planer head drives the gears and sprockets that control the rollers which control feed speed. It looks as if there is plenty of room to add a small dc...

    Shopping for a benchtop drill press. I really want an easy-to-adjust speed mechanism. I find that if I have to adjust the belts I more than often don't, and I end up using the wrong RPM for the bit I'm using. I can't find many reviews on this machine. Looks solid. Only goes down to 150 RPM...

    I am wiring up my new to me lathe that came with a treadmill duty ge dc motor and controller. From all my research I learnt that you have to turn the pot to off and then back up to get the motor to turn. You can sidestep this by cutting the high from the potentiometer and adding a switch to the...

    First post. - Hello! So, this is not about me. I'm more of an electronics hobbyist than woodworker…that got a 3D Printer…wanted to build a cabinet for it… and got carried away down the following rabbit hole… I got a Craftsman CMEW020 6in Variable Speed Jointer from a big box store. I read the...

    Well, I ran an ad asking for free treadmills. Within a week I got a call and picked up my first one. Yesterday, about two weeks after the first, I got another call. I picked that critter up yesterday. The first unit came with a 10 amp, 90 volt DC motor. The second is a 10 amp too, but is...

    Delta 14-651 Mortiser Switch Reliability So, for the past 4-1/2 years, I've had this Delta 1/2 HP mortiser that has given fairly reliable service, even though my use is fairly infrequent. I think I've cut maybe 5 or 6 dozen mortises of various sizes with it, the whole time I've owned. Anyway...

    Stand finished and first turning I happened across this Craftsman lathe, the previous owner hated it and wanted $50 for it so I took it home. It came with a 2×4 stand, 1/3HP motor, 2 faceplates, a spur drive and cup center. First thing I did was disassemble, clean, and reassemble everything...

    Getting the Lathe Home and Mapping the Process The Lathe Here is the lathe. I bought it on Craigslist and got what I feel was a good deal. I went to Nashville and picked it up on Saturday. My plans are to replace the AC motor with a DC motor and make the lathe variable speed electronically...

    Having an older Shopsmith 10ER with a tired motor, I would like to convert to an electronically variable speed set-up. I am not opposed to spending the money on a new motor and control but am having trouble finding anyone who can tell me exactly what to purchase. Anyone done such before? What...

    I acquired a Grizzly G8691 12×40 wood lathe a few weeks ago and only made it through one project before it started acting up. The variable speed is electronically controlled with a knob. It's now stuck on full 3000 RPM, regardless of where the knob is positioned. I've done a little research and...
