When the bolt gets stripped and your roller stand won’t stay up, you have two options: you can order a new knob, for $1.50 + $9.00 shipping, or you can make new one from a bolt and some epoxy in a cup. If you choose the latter option, be sure to include at least two colors of glitter for proper functionality. #shopmaintenance #notwoodworking

All fresh up! I picked up some nice sharp blades this morning, and I dropped off some dull ones. The table saw even has a brand new 350mm, 100t, ATB Tenryu on it. Aw yeah. Throw some wood at us, world. We’ll cut it, not tear it. #woodworking #saw #sawblade #smallbusiness #shopmaintenance #fabrication #tenryu #sharpening #tablesaw

Starting to get air condition season in the shop. South Ga had me sweating at 2100 last night. Took the time to do a little AC maintenance. I keep a home made prefilter to combat the extra dust in the shop the stock filter isn’t cut out for. I’m pretty sure I was past due on replacing it. .

Shop maintenance- changing out old wheels on a dolly might be my first occasion to use cotter pins for their intended purpose. There must be an easier way to bend them once they’re in lol. #shopmaintenance #restoration #woodworking #vintagefurniture

I don't think I believed it till I accidentally tried it!
I bought this old file as scrap for the steel. Using it as such, I lopped a couple chunks off, and de-rusted with HCL. Now I knew that's how people "sharpen" files. But I guess in my mind it was always a snake oil trick that might kinda work. I mean one gets used to the points and edges of things getting worn away first, so surely the acid will make it blunter, right? Well apparently not. You know that catchyness of a sharp blade / burr / abrasive? Well it feels like that!

#stateoftheshopsaturday Doing some clean up on my @grizzlyindustrial 1018hw 8” jointer. To ensure a long rust free life of my machines, I try to take a little bit of time after using them to clean them with mineral oil and then give them a coat of #scjohnson paste wax. It also creates a slick surface so the lumber I run through just glides along. This method is recommended for most shop machinery. I am excited to get the @shopsmith fired up and fully figured out, a lot of you have been big helps with advice on the subject.🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲🌲 #woodworking #woodshop #shopmaintenance #toolmaintenance #jointer #planer #shopsmith #whiskeyrebellion #usa #stateofjefferson #marblemountainwoodworks

Much better. After blowing off the filter a few times, figured it was time to replace it in my @wenproducts air filter.

Got the table saw fence reinstalled and squared up to the miter slots. Nice even feel at the front and back with a 0.010" feeler gauge, with a little less feel in the middle because the fence has a *very* slight bow. Consistent on both sides of the fence and miter slots. And I'm delighted to report that bolting the two table saws together worked perfectly, as the one fence rail position is square to the miter slots of both table saws at once. There was no need for the outside of the saw tables to be quite that accurate, so I figured there was a chance they weren't. No such disappointment today! The dust collection enclosure isn't quite done (pieces are cut out but mounting holes haven't been drilled yet), but I had to cut a few pieces of wood so I took the time to finish the fence alignment. Blades are also square to the table, so it's entirely usable, just messy for a little longer. #biesemeyer #tablesaw #biesemeyerfence #tablesawfence #shopmaintenance #homeworkshop #garageworkshop #woodworking #rockwelldeltaunisaw

All right! #newparts for my #jetlathe. Hopefully the new #spindle and #bearings will fix that pesky #runout I've been noticing.

Bit of shop maintenance today. Have to remake the beam trolley section of my camera boom arm. You can see the original build video on my YT channel. #workshopfixes #shopmaintenance #cameraboom #beamtrolley #RSJ #downunder #aussiewoodworker

Got the crew together! Time to tackle some rust. Fingers crossed for a great result on all three pieces of machinery

Doing some cast iron preventitive maintenance today. These are the products I use regularly to prevent rust and clean up any minor spots. The sandflex blocks are awesome. They are the perfect size to fit in the miter slot to clean it up. If you don't have any yet, do yourself a favor and hit up the @leevalleytools website and order some asap.
