Hello, My grandfather gave me all of his wood turning tools that he brought with him from overseas before moving to the greatest country, America. I’m wanting to fix up the wood lathe. Do you guys have any 1hp+ motor(s) suggestions? I have even noticed folks using motors from other types of equipment to run lathe. I’m hoping to stick around $200 range. thank you!
We are looking to replace our 8' patio door sometime late summer. We now have a Anderson patio door. Since I've been out of the loop on patio doors for sometime now can anyone recommend a good brand of patio door. Lowes, Menards, Home Depot and whoever else seem to all have their own brands that they sell. Just trying to get some ideas so that we can go look at a good quality patio door. There are so many different brands out now that it could make your head spin and want to go to the donut shop.
I have been working on a cross for my grandson's confirmation. I've cut and glued up some Yellow Hart and Purple Hart. Did some sanding and then to the table router, small table top from Sears. Set it up and started to adjust the height. Something fell out of the adjustment and it all came apart. It is old, but i liked it. I found a spring and during reassemble, I lost the spring, e ring and a gear. I know not where. I give up. I am thinking about a Porter Cable replacement, I don't want any more Sears tools. And so it goes.
Have a belt/disc combo center that has a broken drive belt. 14" long, toothed belt, to be exact. Model No. 113.226423. Did a short Google-Fu Search.......anywhere from $1 per inch to $44 for ONE belt. Yikes! I only spent MAYBE $15 on the machine at a garage sale. A belt that costs more than the machine? heck, Sears Parts wanted $24 for one...IF they have one in stock. Lately i don't trust Sears any further than I can throw the store. Looking for other options right now..... Old belt blew apart at the seam. I might go and check out sweeper belts today and see what they have. Let you know what I find out. The machine comes in handy on curved items.....
In my 3 car garage/shop I have 5 fluorescent 2-tube lights. Since I have been working at replacing most of our interior light bulbs with LED bulbs to save electricity and keep the house cooler, I decided to try out a new LED shop light in my shop. So I picked up a LED shop light that has 2 LED light bars that put out 5000k cool light. The cost was $32 from Sam's Club. I put the light over my primary workbench the new light really blew me away. The LED light is so much brighter than my 2 tube fluorescent lights. So I plan on replacing the other 4 fluorescent lights over the next month. In the picture you can see how much brighter the LED light is than the other fluorescent light.
Well, not really, but they sure look and feel like new sanders! I finally bit the bullet and purchased two new pads for my Makita BO5030 ROS and my Porter Cable 330 Speed Bloc. I put this off for so long, it's criminal, I even had paper whizzing off my ROS for quite a few projects before I got off my rear and hit up Amazon for a pad for each sander. Quite inexpensive too. The removal of the old pads were easy, just a few phillip screws out and back in, the ROS had some line up issues though, but I got it figured out in seconds. Any who here are some boring pics, only a woodworkers could like these images! And I also posted some links where I purchased the pads from. My Makita with the old pad on the side, it was shot, the loops were not longer loops, it was virtually melted. I have had this sander on for hours on end in a day, and the pad surface would heat up and eventually fail. My PC 1/4 sheet sander, I love this machine, in my humble opinion they beat all others on the market for efficiency and sound quality. PORTER-CABLE 13597 Stikit Pad for Model 330 Superior Electric RSP27 5 Inch Sander Pad - Hook and Loop Replaces Makita OE # 743081-8, 743051-7 Hitachi OE # 324-209
in with the new. The back gate has seen a lot of abuse over the past couple years.. Just plain worn out. Those 2x2s were a stopgap measure.....didn't work out. Went to Lowes today, they had "Fence Pickets" on sale. Brough home 8 boards to cut to size and make a new gate There is a gap along the bottom, so the gate will schwing better. I also got a box of screws to do the build. I re-used the hinges, latch and handle. Latch slides into a hole in the corner board. For just under $14, gate does look a little better. Less than an hour's work. Had the saw bench on the patio, small (6'') circular saw to cut the 8 foooters down to 42". Crossmembers to fit. I think it will do.....
Who We Are
We are a woodworking community with an emphasis on sharing and learning the skilled craft of woodworking and all of its related disciplines. Our community is open to everyone who wishes to join us. We support our American veterans and active duty, being a veteran is not a prerequisite to join. Join us now!
Of course just like most online woodworking communities we are centralized in the arts, crafts, and trades that are woodworking. But, we have another focus in our Patriot Woodworker community, we are the only woodworking community that was founded on our care and concern for our disabled veterans.
The Patriot Woodworkers are an all volunteer community, from the staff and hosts who run our online woodworking community to the members who frequent our forums, you'll find volunteers in all of us. We are not on a payroll, unless you consider the spiritual rewards gained from volunteering, as compensation.
One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community. A wiki is a great way for woodworkers and enthusiasts to share their knowledge to others, and to impart their knowledge for others to learn from, and utilize as well for their own benefit. We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor.
