Good Vibrations: Can Vibration Help Maintain Woodworking Machines?

Vibration Analysis is used at the industrial and commercial scale for preventative and predictive maintenance. It requires special software and hardware sensors. But, can I do something similar using my Android Tablet and iPhone that I already own using free software?

Certainly nothing stopping you from doing so. Don’t know how much it would apply to home/shop woodworker. Usually, if something starts vibrating so you can feel or hear it that’s when you look into it. Seems more applicable to a commercial machine shop.

Good catch pottz. Tom, welcome to LJs. You’re other posts are all just links to your youtube channel and have no comments. If that’s going to be all you post it might get you banned.

Dear Andybb and pottz,

I have read all the rules for this site and believe I am in 100% compliance. If you don’t agree, please submit your complaints directly to the site administrators and I will work with them resolve any problems.

Also, I reviewed both of your posts. It is clear that you are both very fine woodworkers and well respected on this platform. I certainly wish I were further along in the development of my woodworking skills, but life happens. But don’t worry, I will somehow find strength to push forward even without either of your approval.

False. I have posted several projects to my blog in the form of videos and tagged as “videos’ in accordance with the Lumber Jock’s rules. Quite frankly your I find your messages not very “welcoming.”

can you perhaps tell me which videos have your finished projects in them.i pulled a few up and saw demos you were doing but no projects.i really dont wanna look at 32 videos to see your work.like i said i wont judge your ability without seeing what you can do.there are a lot of so called”you tube” woodworkers these days with a lot not knowing what there doing.sorry you feel my welcome to be insincere.

For the record, when I come across your posts, to me, they are just as said, trying to promote your you tube.

Yes, do as you please,
but I don’t find what you’re doing as trying to help others as much as yourself.

Edit: Have you ever once joined a thread to answer someones question trying to help them?
Not that you have to, just asking.

pottz, I do understand what you are talking about with YouTubers. It is really frustrating to see someone make videos, advertising themselves as experts, when they are clearly are novices. The classic example is the “how to build a desk” video when it is clearly their first time ever building a desk. How in the world can you teach someone else to do something that you have never done before yourself?

I advertise myself as a “student of woodworking.” In many on my videos, I ask and try to answer questions to grow my skills and understanding. In other videos I make projects for enjoyment or basic household use. I don’t pretend to know everything, I make many mistakes and talk about my mistakes openly. I don’t give advise or instructions because I believe those things should come from an expert, and I am not an expert.

Living in Chicago and working from my garage, my activity changes in the winter. I focus on machine maintenance and repair to get ready for spring/summer/fall when I can get the cars out of the garage full time.

Here is a “series” of my projects. I’m currently back to working on more projects now that Spring is here.

Correct. I do as many others, post to a blog as intended by the LumberJocks system with the “video” tag. These are aggregated to the “Video” tab at that of the screen. LumberJocks does not support posting videos directly, you have to upload somewhere else and then post a link. You obviously prefer text and pictures, but like many people in 2022 I prefer to engage the community through video.


Yes, do as you please,
but I don t find what you re doing as trying to help others as much as yourself.

You know nothing about me, my content or my motivations for volunteering my time and money to create content. I receive NOTHING in return. I am a 100% non-monetized non-commercial channel.


Edit: Have you ever once joined a thread to answer someones question trying to help them?
Not that you have to, just asking.

The videos themselves are in service to the community. I also actively engage people trying to help on several platforms.

Woah! This went off the rails quickly. I never said I didn’t approve of your video. I said “welcome” then we tried to inform you about how the community might react to the method of posting. Most people post a link to a video in the body of their post that relates to a certain skill or type of material or tool.

The video in your posts IS the post and that is (right or wrong) a little different than the norm around here though it might be within the rules “technically”. Most of us have a youtube channel. I’ll use the late great Charles Neil as an example. Chas. has an incredibly robust channel, a sort of Chas. Neil University. However, he never just posted a link to one of his videos. We felt like we KNEW him. Pretty much everything I learned about finishing I learned from him. Check out this post from him.

Somebody posted a forum topic entitled ””Charles Neil Blotch Control, what am I doing wrong?

Chas. responded with an in-depth technical response


Its not the Blotch control, its the dye, in order to meet VOC regulations they have to make the dyes dry super fast, I agree its an issue . Here is a Blog I wrote that will help to explain , We have issues with it as well . To be brief , whatever your definition of Haul A* is , this is where you need to exercise it. It does help if you let the Blotch control dry an extra day, it wont absorb the dye quite as fast, I usually have one wiping on, or better yet spraying and another wiping off, paper towels do the best, you have to move.

Dyes like transtint, or WD Lockwood where they are powders or concentrated liquid , and are mixed with just water, dry slower, GF , theirs are pre mixed , so they have to meet VOC regulations, and thats makes a world of difference, but they also make one of the best dyes I have ever used, so its tough , I know well .

https://intheworkshop.wordpress.com/2012/04/17/applying-dyes-stains-over-my-blotch-control-prestain/

Drop me a pm if you have more questions, always glad to help *

- CharlesNeil

That is more of the norm for people who have youtube channels. They create a forum topic then include a link in the body of the post to a page or video they did showing the technique.
