  • When the right size adapter did not come with

    the metal bending equipment one has to look around and find that one size needed to complete this task... ? And sure nuff this used 8" grinding stone happened to be the exact size I needed for some hold down clamps for the lake pump I'm mounting on the boat dock...I was getting too much wind and it was causing the dock to toss and turn and made extra play in the threads of the pipe coming out of the pump and the pressure shot the 1 1/2" pipe right out of the end of the pump...and then after

    Finishing Bench

    Now that I have a 10x12 empty room to use for finishing work I decided to build a small bench to do the finishing on, and then put in a drying rack.? Not wanting to take up alot of space I went with 24 inches x 36 inches?for footprint and 32 inches high.? No wheels, I can always revisit this if I want later.? The frame is easily several times heavier than needed but I have a tendency to overbuild or over load a bench so more is better in this regard. ? Progress so far is a completed fr

    Education

    Education One of the many projects we are working on is a wiki for our online community.

We hope you'll consider being a wiki contributor. Research Do you love researching? Do you like to write about subjects in a factual non-biased style?

    • Workbench Magazine Mar-Apr 1965 Corner Cupboard
      This is a scanned document of the now defunct Workbench Magazine of this era. Permission was granted by the new Workbench Publication for The Patriot Woodworker community to copy and use the old Workbench Magazine at our pleasure, and for free distribution and re-use.
      This scan is of a corner cupboard, this is a great example of traditional design. These old Workbench Magazine's were fairly light on the detail, but with some prior knowledge and experience you can use this plan as a great jumping off point to build this corner cupboard.
      Enjoy!

    • Has anyone had any experience with Fisch bits, specifically their auger bits?? I have been looking for a source for auger bits.? What I see on ebay and Amazon is disappointing.? Rusty, still have wood chips in the cutters and flutes, broken spurs, etc.? The only place I have found with a decent selection is Highland Woodworking.? Their product line features Fisch Jennings pattern bits, and a three piece set of 3/8, 1/2, and 3/4 inches is $119.99.? A little pricey, but if they are good quality I don't mind that too much.???
