disk sander dust collection

Filed under: old tools,wood shop — howarth frank @ 9:46 pm

i removed the dust collector that came with my disk sander and re made the cover plate that it attached to out of plywood.  i then attached a 6 inch blast gate to a 6 inch hole in this new piece of plywood. this blast gate is now attached to the dust collection system. this set up pulls a lot more air and a lot more dust.

drill press

Filed under: old tools — howarth frank @ 10:24 pm

the candy-otto drill press is finally upright. it was harder than i had thought as i had to get the lifting chain in just the right spot so it would hang vertical to bolt the foot on.

band saw

i moved the new saw into place today. it is the heaviest thing i have moved.  my wood gantry crane worked great, with no complaints.  the saw runs like a top and cuts like a dream.
