  1. Sharpening question

    I know there are 2 different type of bench grinders. High speed and low speed. Plus jigs to get the correct angles. Are you able to sharpen on a high speed bench grinder too?
  2. Woodgears

    Collection of projects. Many free plans, some chargeable. Furniture, woodwork, and shop tools. Projects usually demonstrated on YouTube..
  3. Web-frames. What I use in a case to let drawers slide in and out. Made long before those new-fangled metal thingys ever came along. last episode, I had all the parts cut to length, to make 6 frames. Today? Well first a "prototype" was sawn out.. Yeah, a tenon. The problem today was how to make about 24 of these tenons, without a lot of time being used up. Hmmm, I have that Mitre Box, and it has depth stops I can adjust.. Right there, under the guide, is a brass collar. Loosen the set screw, and slide up until you reach the depth you want to stop at. Did both the front one, and the one in the back. I used the prototype under the saw blade, to set the depth. while the prototype was sitting there, I screwed a stop block to the deck. so, I could do the other 23 tenons' shoulder cuts, and wear out my elbow, at the same time. Slide up to the block, cut until the saw no longer cuts, flip to do the other side, flip again to do the other end. Next, needed a way to cut the cheeks of the tenons...re-saw jig on the bandsaw was slid around a bit.. I pushed each side through, until the waste just fell over, rotate or flips as needed...soon had 48 of these little scraps laying around. As for the tenons? 24 tenons were soon done( the other ends look just like these) Next, I needed another jig. Had to go and dig it out...and then "up-date " it.... The side pieces were too tall, made new, lower ones. Spacing was too wide...ok, I clamped a part and the two new sides together in the vise Drilled a few new holes for screws, and screwed the base in place. Need this attached to the bench top, right over a leg.. With a few screws. Now, I can use a pair of Visegrips finger clamps to hold a rail, while I abuse it for a bit. Chose a tenon to use for the layouts. Used a backsaw to make a couple cuts.. Sawn at an angle, so as not to overcut too much, Have another way to dig out the waste.. The mortise chisel chops down at the back, then I can just pop the waste out. The wide chisel to fine tune things as needed.. Plan was to fit each tenon to it's new home. I also marked on all the parts, which part goes where. After a few chops, I could check for square.. Let's see, that be 4 tenons fitted in place, a lot of flipping going on here. I also cut some old, nasty pine into a kicker.. A kicker is to keep a drawer fromtipping down, when you pull the drawer out a bit. While the M & T joints will get glue and nails later, the kickers will get a screw on each end, and a spot of glue. So, shop time started at 1130 hrs, and ended at 1500 hours....what did I get done? Three frames are ready to be assembled with glue, nails, and screws. First, I had to get these off the washer, before the Boss sees them. Will try to get the rest of these done, so I can clear the bench and do a lot of assembly work. Been a long afternoon...stay tuned..
  4. The K.I.S.S. Jig

    That to thr GrandBRATS being here and wanting to go places.....work on the Cherry Box has ground to a halt...almost. Needed to give the brain a rest for a day or two, anyway.... Jig? Well, I needed a way to plough a groove into the frame's skinny and thin parts. Hard to hold onto them AND the Stanley #45......router table? Nah, I'd have to dig it out, set it up and listen to it scream....not. Laid down a scrap of pine. Two screws, countersunk to fix it in place on the bench. Some small brads to add a couple little piece to make a square corner. Used one of the frame's parts to make sure I had clearence along the outside edge... Something like this. The screw sticking up "in the way"? Well, it helps hold things in place... I think I can run a plane along the edge to dress it up a bit. All set up for the short ends. Then I can move the screw a bit, and set up for the longer sides. Should be able to run the 45 along the edge a few times. Not talking a lot of plane effort needed to plough these grooves, Maybe 3-4 swipes per piece. I have to double check to make sure I am grooving the TOP of each piece. When I get back to the shop, we'll see how this goes. Jig is a one time use thing. I will need to build a different one when I am working on the lid's panel. Might take as long to plough four grooves as it did to make the jig. Not that I'm cheap, or anything.....I intend to re-use the jig's parts for the panel work...
  5. plantpotjig

    From the album Turning Jigs

    This here is the start of my idea to make a paper pot plant maker. Using a piece of apple for the base and a piece of maple for the cup. Thanks for the idea Lew.
  6. John Moody and I were talking today about dovetail jigs. We both have the Peachtree version and the discussion got around to replacement bits and it looks like the Amana bit for the Keller system is identical to the Peachtree bit. I heard that Keller's patent ran out and Peachtree copied it. Any input on this? Anyone have a Keller system?
