  1. I just learned I got a slow speed grinder built into my Shopsmith! How cool!

  2. I have an OLD Sears grinder that the cord has seen better days. 1/4 HP 115V 4.5 amp split phase motor, 2 prong plug. Length of cord is about 6' I can't tell by looking at the cord what size (AWG) it is, no markings it's that old. So for a 1/4 hp continuous duty grinder is 14 AWG stranded wire ok? Or 16AWG? Suggestions? Just get an extension & cut the female end off? wire it black, white & ground the frame. or just buy 2 wire lamp cord & wire it up? or buy a 3 wire (white, black, ground) piece from the HD roll & put male end on it? Thks smitty
  3. "Back From The Archives" I picked up this machine last week along with some other machinery and I have not been able to figure out what it originally was. I was told that it came off of a military vessel (probably a "victory" ship) and I suspect it has been modified to add the drill chuck. The motor has a plate on it identifying the manufacturer as the American Electrical Tool Company (1 HP, 440 volt, 3 Ph) but there is nothing to tell me what the machine originally was. There is also a small plate which appears to be a military plate stating "Battle Creek . . . M-5038 . . . div". As you can see from the photos, the machine has a single spindle and a foot brake, leading me to believe it was something other than a grinder. However, the American Electrical Tool Company only made grinders and polishers to my knowledge so I'm questioning whether that is correct. Any help in identifying this would be appreciated.
  4. I just came off of building two large bookcases so I needed some play time in the shop. I built 2 walnut and cherry flag cases for my Etsy store but at my wife’s insistence, I built 5 coffee mills. One for my son, one for my daughter, two for the store and one for me. I did learn that there’s a huge difference in the mechanisms. I originally bought them from Amazon (Penn State) and they were junk. Tried my go to store of Woodcraft but they didn’t carry them. Rockler had them on sale for $20 so I bought 6 of them.
  5. Yesterday I managed to extract myself from the busy life of Honey Do's and kids daily events and get a little time in the shop with our Claro Rocker. A week ago when I started laying out the arms ontop of the arm pads that are basically the top of the front legs, I realized I made a major mistake in my calculations for the arm rests to meet up at the proper height to the joint at the rear leg/backrest area. I was a full 1/4" too low, the joinery was not going to meet up where it was supposed to by my previously laid out joints. After much thinking and tinkering with ideas and layouts, I finally came to the conclusion that I'll simply increase the height of the arm rest by adding a 1/4" block to raise up the arm rest. Since this is walnut, the newly added pad will be un-noticeable. In some regards these rockers are un-forgiving in errors, but in many regards these rockers are also very forgiving in the sense that this is in essence a sculpted work, so errors and mis-steps often times can be carved, shaped, and filed away or to blend, and in this case, it is a forgiving error/ Images below are not exciting, they simply show my modified pad glued up to the top of the front leg pad to increase the height of the arm rest. First image shows my pad glued up and secured with my quick grips just to get them in place. One thing I like to do is save sawn cut-outs from a piece I shape so we can use them as clamping cauls, you'll notice the blocks at the bottom of the shaped arm pad, they were initially cut out for the the preliminary shaping of the arm rest block, I held on to them to use as I clamp up the arm rest to the block, but I was also able to use them in this fix for clamping cauls. Next images show the clamps all in place on both arm rests pads. Unrelated to the arm rest FUBAR, are more images showing the preliminary shaping of the front leg seat joints. I rough and blend the joints in with a 4.5" right angle grinder. But first I need to secure the chair to my bench. Next I take to grinding the general shape of the joint. As it takes shape I'll then finish it up with a combination of my ROS and some files. Image below shows the joint blended and formed, no gaps in the glue joint either, this is a successful chair joint. To reach the other side of the joint, I need to position the chair on the floor, and brace it with my legs and feet, and work on the joint from a comfortable height as I sit. The joint is not finished, but it's coming along. I use the same technique as I did with the other side of the joint in images above. Thanks for following along, now contrary to popular propositions and laws being formed and voted on, I feel these are some "joints" we can all get behind!
  6. Since it is less < 10 this doesn't qualify as hoarding either. Just rescuing these great hand grinders from the scrap iron pile. And they all work, a few are not OSHA approved though.
  7. So, I finally have a jig saw, an angle grinder, some mica powder (for epoxy resin), I found a local wood shop for things I need done that I can't do myself (planing an uneven slab, etc)... I feel like a kid turned loose in a candy store LOL I ordered the wood carving bits for the angle grinder (not the $145 Arbortech that I had been looking at), more jig blades... I feel like I'm about to get myself into LOTS of trouble LOL I'm probably going to go get the 2x4's that I need to make that wavy flag, get the shop to plane them to the same width (on the 4" side), and to level one side (2" side) to have a squared bottom edge to start with. OMG I am so excited and ready to start tearing into some wood LOL Granted, getting them sold will be another issue until the fest season begins around here again. So... What are your woodworking plans for the new year? (I can't promise I won't borrow your inspirations lol)
  8. A project earlier in the year foreclosed on the real estate it once lived on. While not a woodworking tool it is a must for many other aspects used in woodworking. It is not unusual for me to have projects that require metal working and woodworking, ceramics etc. etc. You want it solid so it doesn't move, but also not in the middle of the way of other equipment when using them. Like most my shop space is limited so you have to be creative. It started with a box that had to be mounted firmly to the back of the bench as well as in the front. Used 1/4 xn 20 bolts to do this in the back, drilled through the bench and did the same in the front. It does not move. Then came the drawer portion I had a piece of 1 1/2 countertop scrap so cut it down and drilled holes for grinder. Mounted with 5/16 grade 8 bolts then used 300lb drawer slides. That got me able to pull it out of the way of the 12 inch sander and have some room to maneuver corners and such. Works great but hey it is a drawer slide, moves back quite easily. I needed a lock, something simple but strong. Used a brake shoe retaining spring to push the 1/4 metal plate down. Threaded the plate with a 1/4 x 20 bolt and added a knob at the top. Put it together and we have a mechanical lock that springs out when the drawer is full extended. Pushes back against the front of the cabinet, stays put. To release pull up on the knob and push back. Slides back and out of the way. To test this I mounted it all up and had my mountain man hulk looking neighbor slam it back into place trying to get the lock to fail, or any other part for that matter. Nope, all worked and no damage. Then fired it up and tested out the vibration. About normal for a grinder. Side to side slop is nominal, I called it a day and took all back apart to paint yellow. Didn't try to match, the paint serves two purposes, one is memory the second is if I send someone to get something I can say, the yellow grinder and know this stands out. Unless they are color blind they will find it. One of several projects I have planned. December is my month for shop work. Everybody else can wait till next year. Enjoy and be inspired!
  9. Install a lid. and a seal coat. Found some water a-going across the Dungeon floor today. Figured I get the lid on, and then seal the wood up. First the hinges a bit of chisel work with just a few hand tools. Scratch awl is a Stanley. Used it to make some pilot holes, then ran a screw into each. After start to get things together....found the hinges were on up-side down....ooops. Re-install the hinge, right side up. Brass screws that came with the hinges were a bit too long. Grinder made them the right length. Lid also has a pine cleat on one end, to keep a crack in place. Used the un-cut end of the cleat as a hand-hold, while screwing down the hinges There were a bunch of counter-bored screws on the case and lid. Went out and got some store bought plugs. The seven on the edge of the lid were easy, lid was standing up, just add some glue, and a plug. Tap down until flush with the end of the mallet. The sides, however were different. Needed an old block of wood, drop a big blob of glue on it, moosh the plug around a bit, and install with the mallet head made a mess of the mallet. the plugs were then planed down a bit this was a before a block plane leveled them down. Well, that is about all for wood working..... oh yeah, a seal coat? remember, this is just the first/seal coat. Raised panels on the ends are Sycamore. Another view? and maybe a look at the lid? there is a big, fancy word for that strange shine, begins with, Chato.....?
  10. Received this in an email today- https://woodturnerswonders.com/collections/rikon-grinders?page=1
  11. Stumbled upon this tonight...worth the look...once in a lifetime goldmine find for NIB vintage tools. https://indianapolis.craigslist.org/tls/d/vintage-craftsman-and-other/6655669969.html
  12. Hey I don't want to suggest something you might not want but for what you suggested you are in to, an air grinder should be considered if you have a reasonable sized compressor and not the screaming kind. Because die grinders take 1/4" bits they can hog off more material than the 1/8" bits I prefer on carving. Also Wood Carvers Supply has the bits in 1/4" size and will do the same as the 1/8" bits I use but much faster.. Also if you don't have yet, Bring up Wood Carvers and check out their 2" carbide nugget wheel # 264866....and hold on to your hat for it will throw wood all over the place..Also a chain saw wheel will get after wood real fast but it will do the same to skin and bones the same way!! I can trust their air tools way more than their electric models. I have maybe ten different HF air tools and only one electric and all they need to last a while is light weight oil... But you do have to be careful about the amount of oil when used around expensive wood.. These have front and also rear exhaust so the rear exhaust model would be the one to buy. The last two I bought from HF is their 13.99 and the 19.99 1/4" angle grinders ...They also have the small 5/8" diameter pencil grip size air grinder for 1/8" bits and will be the next I buy..24.95 and will be cheaper with that always 40% off of any one item.
  13. Grooming something this small needs a jig so I turn the whole piece into a big jig large enough to hold on to. I screwed the Rook to be to a piece of 1/4" piece of BB. This let me hold it true for a cut on each side with the band saw. Then grind away till it matches the other one!! Used different wood so a little staining might help. I found something close. So I took it outside and shoot it with some clear to see if the color was still close after the clear Dried. I used maple and they had made the chess set with cedar. The lady thought only a few pieces with chips missing were all the set needed until the guy that got the set for Christmas let her know two pieces were missing... Now to get back to the End Of The Trail saga...
  14. Okay Master of the great wood turner, lathe tool sharpening queries.... I have both a grinder and a table top belt sander. which do you think is better to use for a beginner and which grit for the sander and grind wheel. i was watching videos but they dont tell me. so i am looking to the masters for help.
  15. Had to go to the big city for c-scans and other stuff and then headed for HF for a couple of air angle drive grinders. Back when I was wheeling up and down the roads with a truck load of Mac Tools in my earlier life I could not justify buying these type of air angle grinders for my price back then was at least 120 or more and for hobby play things I couldn't afford them. One of these was 13.99 , the other was 19.99 so wife said get both. But wait, when we approached the check out stand I told the clerk I decided not to get the 15% off coupon for one item cause before I punched the print button it said there would be 6 pages printed. I says to myself that amount of ink will cost me that much so I didn't get a discount slip of paper. The clerk said I can fix that, picking up her cell phone and looked up the code numbers then gave me 25% off the most expensive item of the five things we had set on the counter...So one grinder cost me 13.99, the other cost me 14.99. One is a rear exhaust the other a front exhaust, both have collet chucks. I will say all the air tools I have bought from them are all still working good but I can't say that about the electric models. But all air tools out last electric models. So maw got her deep freeze and I got more than I deserved. I think of all the stores in our big city, the Harbor Freight people are there to make happy customers like it or not. But they also have not disappointed me in any way.
  16. I'm done with the Chicago Electric crap! First grinder I had for three years light duty, it took a dump 6 months ago, just stopped working. Second Chicago grinder I purchased right after, used it twice in the last 5 months. Went to fire it up today to cut back some stucco on our home, no worky. Dead as a door nail. I don't have time to take it back, write an email to CS, or write a letter, if time is money, I'd burn up the worth of that grinder in the first 10 minutes. Guess where I just filed it, on the round file. Looks brand new don't it? It's a piece of CRAP!!!!! A bright red shiney new piece of Harbor Freight CRAP!!!! No more!
  17. How would I go to making angle forms for a grinder? I have CBN wheels and a platform on the grinder.
  18. My grinder just stopped working, I remember this happened about 5 years ago, and I was able to get it to work again by pushing a button, I think, to reset the trip. Now I cannot find it! Does anyone have one these grinders, and if you do, where the heck is the trip button? Please see manual attached, I could not find any diagram of a trip button in the manual, yet the manual does state if equipped, you can reset the trip.

  19. Went back to that estate sale this morning..with a camera. I only had $2 on me. so not much was bought...however Best I can do, without a tripod under the camera. Would barely fit in the back of most pick up trucks... They made a bit of a mess in the place This was just laying around on the floor... That be the Line Shaft laying there. Scrollsaw? 50 degrees outside, cold breeze coming in the open doorway, Hands were a bit shaky. 2 Drill Presses? Post drill has it's own motor, biggem needed the line shaft. Check out that transmission's gear shifter.. Tucked under a stairway, was this grinder, and sitting beside it? I didn't have room for this thing. A box or two on the floor MIGHT have had the rest of the parts None of these things had a price on them, a "Make offer" sort of sale. I did buy one item today ( sold a Mountain Dew for some cash).. At 19" long, kind of hard to call it a caliper? $1 Camera battery was DOA...time to go home. Sale was supposed to run until 5pm today.......they may have to schedule a second sale... 3704 TWP Rd 32 S. West Liberty,OH. Also comes up on Google maps .....I think I had better go and clean up that $1 piece of rusty steel....
  20. Well, I did get the sockets that were in that tool box's bottom all cleaned up Ain't they cute? The front row has a mystery to them, though.. While the back row is all square drill sockets, the front row is a "Hex" drive.....almost a 1/2" Allen size? Ok, about this Cordless Grinder. Yard sales today, found one that had a grinder for $10...but, no motor? Did a little "bandit work" and got it for $6... Turns out, I am the motor. Needs a little oil in the two oilers. Since my bench is a might too thick, I had to grab a 2x3 block, clamp it into the end vise, then clamp the grinder to the block. Gave it a spin, and did a bit of wheel dressing. Wheel is on the coarse side. There is the remains of a label.....barely. Well, for the times I don't need this grinder, I can stow it out of the way. Not sure yet on where the rest will be used at. I was trying it out like this....can be moved around a bit if needed. Not too bad for $6?

  25. Well, got a Stanley plane in the mail the other day, a Birthday present from a buddy. A Stanley No. 39, 3/8" Dado plane.. It was missing a few items, though. Went over to nhplaneparts to see what Eric had He did had two of the three bolts to hold the nickers with....about $10 for the pair....pass He did have a nicker, since I was missing that one, I placed an order for it. A wee bit too tiny of an object to work on, with my eyes.... He did not have the 3/8" cutter. I happen to have a "spare" tappett wrench. Should be some decent steel in it, right. Started to cut the piece I needed off the wrench ( still a bit of a wrench left) and got a tub of water to sit by the grinder....going to be a LONG day This is where things started, laid the "blank" on the plane, to see where to cut stuff out Yep, gonna take awhile. Trying NOT to burn the steel, had a water trail across the floor from all the dunking. Got things a little closer, used the beltsander to ease the grinder marks For one thing, the edge is beveled at an angle, the iron itself needs to be tapered, the iron sits in the plane at an angle. Back to the grinder. Kept thinning things down, refining bevels, smoothing out grinder roughness. Finally got things to fit, almost Now, being the cheapskate I am, I decided to save a few dollars. Went to Lowes and picked up a tap & drill, and a pack of small bolts. Looked the same size....some dummy forgot his glasses.. For you see, the tap was for 6-32 bolts.....pack of bolts I bought were 8-32 ones...ooops. So, while waiting on the Boss to get ready to drive me to Lowes, again.....drilled the four holes to hold the nickers on. Nice and easy to do, Then put the tap into a tap wrench And gave it a spin. No problems, tap was dry, spun easy. Ok, off to lowes for bolts, and other stuff ( honey-do supplies) Installed the bolts as deep as I could, from the left hand side. The right hand side was flat, so if the bolts stuck out ( they did) I could grind them flush better. Had to be careful to just grind the bolts. Couple of which wanted to spin back out. Cleaned and sharpened the one nicker i did have. Went to install the bolts for it....they wouldn't go through the slot on the nicker. Well, drill bit was still in the drill press....a wiggle here and there to make some room. Try again....yep, they fit. Cranked down the two bolts, and set the other two into their own holes. Then tried to make a shaving....nicker works, but no shavings? Ah, needs more cutter adjustment. Ground the iron a bit thinner, to open the mouth enough for a shaving to sneak through. Finally got some! Well, about it, until the other nicker shows up, but here is the plane so far As for the new tap? Might have to add a hole to stash it in Getting a might full, though. Long day, might have been worth it?
