  1. Hello again folks, so we are looking to add a new tool to the arsenal in the shop and I am going crazy searching for it. We are wanting a Router, we prefer one right now with a pre-fab table so we can start making our own paddles out of pine for our projects. However, the more I search the more questions I have and no one at Home Depot or Lowe's is any help, we don't really have many local hardware stores that I know of, if any. Can anyone here point me in the right direction?
  2. I purchased a Harbor Freight dust collector and intend to upgrade the impeller. I am having a serious issue getting the stock impeller off. I have never done this before and do not want to mess up the impeller (incase I need it for later) or the shaft. I purchased a set of gear pullers and still cold not get it to come off. Any suggestions.
  3. Forgot about doing this the other day. Did it last winter with mainly scraps I had laying around my shop. Only thing I actually bought for especially for it was the gray paint.
  4. I was on the Shopsmith web site the other day and noticed that they have a bunch of free plans. Well, almost. Most of them are 404. I decided to order a catalog while I was there. First off, the address was hand-written. They I saw the prices. They want $1700 for the tables only to upgrade from the Mark V to Mark 7 version. Cripes, that's more than I paid for my whole Unisaw. Many aging boomers and older dying or giving up the shop due to health or other reasons after owning them for decades. Most (realistically priced) ones I have see go for $300-500 with a couple of the extra tools (bandsaw, jointer, or belt sander). I go by the old plant regularly and it seems every time I see it, it's getting less and less of the building. They don't even have a storefront any more and I have not heard of the on the road sales/demos in a dozen years. A friend of mine was actually one of those guys and was a top performer until he got laid off.
  5. "Back From the Archives" Hi, I am about to undertake the restoration, and upgrade of a Delta model 700 Scroll Saw. This model was available from 1931 to 1937 in the Delta catalogs. I have two of these saws, and will be using the best parts from both units to complete one machine. Both of the machines as I received them either had the upper blade chuck missing or broken, so this is where the upgrade part of the restoration comes into play. I will be using the plunger bearing, shaft, and upper blade chuck from a later model Delta Scroll saw to replace what I have found to be a rather unobtainable part to locate. At the same time I will maintain the ability to index the upper blade chuck, plus add easier to perform blade tensioning to the saw. First the saws. Now for a look at the original upper blade chuck assembly. Now a look at the parts that I'll be using for the modification. A comparison of the upper blade chucks, I'll be using the smaller one. A showing of the parts after a little rework. All machining work was accomplished using 180 grit sandpaper, and a 1/8" round file. The bearing was turned down with sandpaper to fit the upper head casting, and the large brass washers inner diameter were enlarged to fit the shoulder on the plunger bearing. These were in turn epoxied to the bearing shoulder, and each other. The file slot is for blade indexing, and gets secured using the 6-32 Brass machine screw, and knurl nut. The plunger shaft was cut just below the fiber washer, then 1" was removed from the shaft. The next step was to turn the head of the 10-32 machine screw down to fit in the end of the plunger shaft. This was then silver soldered into the shaft. This will accomplish the bade tensioning by shortening the shaft's length. The smaller brass washers will be epoxied to the top of the fiber washer assembly's metal part. Another view showing the assembly. Another view showing original versus the remake. And another. And a test fit view on the saw. Sorry about the photo quality, but this is my first time using a digital camera, it's also the first time that I've posted pictures to a website. So thanks for understanding. I hope that you have enjoyed the show, and thanks for looking. More to come later, as I now have to pick the best parts from the rest of the remains.... Oh, and who was it that said you can't fit a square peg in a round hole??? It all depends upon how you go about it!!!
  6. Recently a fellow woodworker sent me a note about an upgrade someone did to his DeWalt 788. Seems as a Marcus Bailey has come up with a over sizsd knurled knob cap for the Dewalt Scroll saw. He is making these and for more information you can contact: Marcus Bailey 404-274-2532 Or: scrollsawcomfortknob@gmail.com They come in 2 sizes,1.125" and 1.00" , I bought 2 small ones, here are the pictures,thats about 2 min. to install.

  7. Those of you that have made this upgrade to your lathe: how do you like it? I have read a lot of comments and watched Utube videos but,alas, can not ask questions. I am retired so have lots of time to change speeds on my lathe. Enlighten me please.
