spindle sander

We were in sunriver this past weekend, and I found a spindle sander in la pine on Craig’s list.  A 10 mile drive south and I have a great working spindle sander.

I won the bid to day on a powermatic no. 72 table saw. I’m excited about having a dedicated ripping was.  The 72 has a 5 hp motor and a 12 or 14 inch blade.

RAS dust

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 9:15 pm

The dust collection is set up for the radial arm saws.  I have been building the shop over the last few months, and have not worked on any projects.  This should change soon as I am inching to build something, with the new shop.  The first thing most likely will be a new storage system for the closet in our bed room.  Then maybe a bench with shoe storage for our front entryway, and there are always new ideas to turn on the lathe.

mortiser and disk sander

Filed under: wood shop — howarth frank @ 8:42 pm

The mortiser and disk sander are set up. I need to sharpen and find new bits for the mortiser. The disk sander needs the dust collection hooked up.  It takes 15 minutes for the disk to come to a stop. It runs very smoothly without any vibration.img_0205.JPG
