In the next photograph I’ve just taken a few through shavings down the reference edge. Now the trick I mentioned is a simple visual solution that clearly determines what your surface edge really looks like.
Lying there before me is a kind of road map…this clearly shows where there are still dips or hollows in the surface. My steel straight edge, winding sticks and engineers square together will tell the story of square and straight but for these tiny surface hollows, in the thousandth of an inch range, this road-map trick is something you should try.

When you look at someone else’s shop, you can’t help but to think of improvements they could make.  But what would you say about your own shop? My main dust collector for the filter bag upgrade, with 6” diameter duct riser, which splits into two 5” diameter main ducts. Here you can see the duct drop to the floor sweep, and the branch on the right side is the 25 ft. A central, high-powered 3-5 Hp cyclone collector (or single-stage with professional-grade filter bags) that you pre-duct to all your machines with 16 oz. This floorsweep allows me to use a broom and sweep large piles of sawdust to this location to send it to oblivion.
If I take air from two locations in one tool, the airflow needed will go up, and for my table saw probably around 800 cfm at minimum.
Here’s a collection of accessories, including a swivel connection, hose clamps, duct hangers, foil tape (makes a perfect seal), and a roll of metal strapping. I walk in the shop after a snack or after watching Rough Cut, reach for the keychain remote and clip it on my belt loop, then grab a stack of boards that need jointing. The only thing wrong with this picture is that I have to manually open and close the blastgate at each machine (I could leave a few open at one time but I like to maximize suction at the one I’m using since I don’t have a million horsepower cyclone). In future blog posts, I’ll dive into more detail about things like accessories, air cleaners, and detailed design (like how to calculate your duct sizes) but here’s an overview of things that you shouldn’t forget about when sitting down to design your dust collection.  For more info, go to the Dust Collection Resource Page as well.
For the seams in the straight duct, elbows, and blastgates, you’ll need to brush on duct sealant. Chip separators use a cyclone action to collect the largest particles and chips, and only the smaller dust particles make it to your collector bag. When you’re done with your planning, note the lengths of each duct so you can buy it. But that was it, I bought those things, didn’t spend as much $ as I feared, and now I have a pretty good system that I can keep upgrading!

The main problems we face from customer site after installation of these furnaces are dust.
So my questions are: does this approach suggest that I need a very high powered dust collector?
Last question: since I will move the hose from machine to machine manually, what’s the best way to connect to the (reducers attaching to the) built in outlets on the equipment?
The more CFM you get the greater distance you can collect the fine dust; the suction distance drops radically with distance, meaning you need much more CFM the further away you want to draw in dust. Now if I had the DC-650, I might look at centralizing the collector and radially distributing ductwork to each tool, though that compromises your layout. Or, depending on your basement shop’s layout, you could located the CFM-hungry machines together and use the collector to duct locally to those, and use a shop vac for portable sanders, routers, etc. The chip separator does cause a pressure drop, decreasing the CFM you get out of the collector, so I tend not to use it since I just empty the bottom bag on my collector. With your collector in the attic, a chip separator may add convenience for emptying, if located at ground level or maybe on a reachable shelf in.
I have my mains split into 2 runs, so if you do the same, one main can pick up the heavy-chip machines, and the other main can pick up the rest. June 10, 2010 by tom 5 Comments This week I received a couple of parcels all the way from La Crosse, Wisconsin- yup, a few new products from Bad Axe Tool Works. If you remember my old set of Bad Axe bench hooks, it’s a two-piece set made from quarter sawn red oak and come with miters already cut into the fences so you can get straight to work. One fine day this past winter I was making some small boxes and needed to plane down some thin stock. Dear Tom, at first I wish I give all my congratulations for your nice and amazing hand woodworking. Looking forward to the new book I’m on the second read through and look forward to doing some hand work after my kitchen reno.
June 17, 2010 by tom 18 Comments I’ve had a busy few weeks around the woodshop and should apologize for the lack of posts lately. Last week I received some samples of the new line of Back Saws from Bad Axe Tool Works in La Crosse, Wisconsin.
These saws are brand new for 2010 and the first thing you can’t help noticing is the new style and shape of the handles.
Inspired by a Wheeler Madden Clemson, its  patterned after those produced in the late 19th century and its as comfortable in use as it is beautiful to admire. Small details where the plate mortise meet the saw plate add an elegant aesthetic and in hand it feels perfect for hours of use.
Walnut and Stainless steel fasteners and back make for one of the nicest looking hand saws I've ever seen. The first one I tried is probably the most unique looking saw I’ve ever laid my eyes on and it features a walnut handle with stainless steel, split nut fasteners and back.


The walnut is perfectly formed and finished and in combination with the stainless fittings draws this very traditional shape well into the present. Now if I can get past how great it looks I can honestly say it functions about twice that amount…really- this particular saw came filed x-cut at 13tpi and it cut so fast yet so smooth it was absolutely amazing.
The second 12″ carcase saw came with a figured cherry handle and Gunsmith-blued fasteners and back. Cherry handle with Gunsmith Blued fasteners and back- another combination available from Bad Axe. Seriously- the saw marks were so fine in the end grain of the oak it almost looked like I had taken a plane or chisel to it after I cut it. These saws come with all of the options mentioned above and you can customize them to suite your own styles and tastes. So I know many of you think or thought I must be crazy for using a saw of this size for most of my work and can understand why some wood workers may feel this size too much to handle.
Again, like all of the Bad Axe line you can add your own ‘flava of bling’ to the equation and make these things look like you could be sawing in a night club somewhere!
As for Mark, he is wonderful to converse with and listens to the user’s needs and delivers a product that fits the bill exactly.
Drop a line when it arrives and you finally sink it into some wood- love to hear your thoughts. Hello Tom Great post on hand saws.Enjoy readying your posts as I am still learning who makes what and how to use them. Looking for Ted’s Woodworking How to Use Woodworking Plans For Simple Woodworking Projects? I’ll be posting some more detailed information on the lathe as I get into it but I suggest you stop in at the CME Handworks eBay store and check them out.
Hello Tom, I was looking through the cme web page and was interested in the stair saw Chris & Mary had made and was wondering how much they charged for it?
I just had a quick look at the CME Ebay store and didn’t see the stair saw- maybe they’re back-ordered or perhaps they only make to order these days? I could never afford to ship one of your lathes to Australia, but I would pay for a pdf, or a print plan.
As is, I could probably build a similar machine from the info and pictures you have supplied, and visit the local metal engineering works to get the metal components, but I’d rather buy from the people who created the design.
I studied the images on your e-Bay offering, to understand more how it worked, (I’d just made a pump drill and was curious how I might make it go in just one direction.
You already share more than enough information to enable someone with a few skills to copy your design (and for someone with more skill and experience to know that $675 is a bargain). I find it easy to spend $5-10 for something I’m curious to know more about, and to support the people who did it. It can be difficult to see with the naked eye any slight valleys and a finger tip touch can only get you so far…this method of watching these signs will give you the confidence to move on with the dimensioning process of the lumber being worked.
The 1% for the Planet network brings together like-minded leaders who share a belief that business can be a vital catayst for positive environmental change. By first drawing a plan, then picking up all the materials, I put it all together assembly-line style.
I added a metal mesh screen here to prevent larger objects from hitting the impeller of the collector.
Also, shop vacuums are loud due to their universal motors, and fill up quickly unless you have a small $100 cyclone chip separator such as the Dust Deputy.
An upgrade that I’m considering is using a cyclone type central collector with 1-micron filtration, or a more powerful single-stage 3-5 hp model with a much larger 16 oz. Here at the router table I collect dust and chips from both underneath the router and from the cutterhead itself. Then I open the jointer’s blastgate (sometimes closing the one that’s open first), hit the “ON” button on the remote, and start jointing. Before doing that I close the blastgate on the jointer, then go to the planer and open that blastgate. If you think you have enough airflow because all the chips are being picked up, you might be missing the finer dust that you can’t see. Static Pressure) to see what the predicted airflow is.  Also look at your largest CFM-requiring tool and check that the static losses from the machine back to the collector results in enough CFM and air velocity. Then make a list of how many of each size elbows you need, wye fittings, duct size transitions, how many blastgates, etc. We are one of the leading manufacturers of Steel melting Induction furnace starting from 5kgs to 60tons capacity. We are ready to take this type of solution from your company if you have readymade solution of this problem. I’m not sure whether this submit is written by him as no one else recognise such targeted about my trouble.
The main hook is double sided so when one wears out you can flip it over and get twice the life out of it.
I decided to add a thin fence to the support rest portion of my set essentially transforming it into a small planing board.
I’m a wood lover and enthusiast and always try to improve my work, by following any news, reading any magazine or article, viewing any video which can be important.
Now I don’t want to get too hung up on the look of these saws because let’s face it- its about the function and not the from right? For small cabinet making, things like frame and panel doors this saw will get the job done in a hurry. Again as far as aesthetics go it looks friggin’ awesome -( but my personal choice is still the walnut and stainless!
I imagine someone who wants a saw that starts very-very smoothly without that initial bite you get from the coarser tooth pattern than this one would be the way to go.
A back saw filed cross cut but rips as good if not better than some of my dedicated rip saws from other manufacturers.
All joking aside, these are truly incredible saws and I promise you you’ll never regret the day you place your order with Mark. I used it here on some small stock I have and was extremely impressed with how it performed. The most vital kinds depend on extremelything you program to carry out in addition to the amount of space readily available for a person.
A person will help to make multiple reduces from it significantly significantly more than It’s lifetime.
Ted McGrath spent the last 2 years placing collectively his woodworking package and according to him this package is the most extensive on the internet right now.this package is intended for a wide audience.
It’s easy for him to ship via UPS (they even offer free shipping to 48 continental United States) and for the customer to re-assemble it is a breeze. If you’re like me and have dreamed of owning a foot powered lathe than this may be just the thing for you. If you sold a printed plan with a few metal components, I’d even be able to afford that!
I used 5” diameter duct because it has less pressure drop than 4” for the CFM my collector has, and also it’s not oversized to maintain enough air velocity to carry the chips back to the fan (make sure you maintain around 4,000 – 4,500 fpm velocity).
Make sure the flex hose that drops down won’t interfere with stock feeding into or out of the tool.


That’s where knowing if you have the CFM recommended by industrial hygienists and organizations like ACGIH comes into play.
Standard elbows have radii 1X the duct diameter Also there is less chance of clogs by doing this.
I figured it would get more use being a planing aid as well as the support rest it was designed as.
The dado holds a walnut fence along with a dash of TiteBond III making these things practically indestructible.
One that just drive you nuts with grain or smell or just bad karma, and how do you get past that?
This blend of walnut and stainless is without question my top pick for hand saw aesthetics.
The slight change from 13 to 14 tpi makes a saw that cuts slightly slower but leaves an incredibly fine kerf.
This informative post might possibly discuss one of one of the most crucial woodworking assets for that property shop. If potential, you need to choose a design that has whitened white markings inside every metric in addition to normal framework.
Beginners will have no difficulty picking on the projects right here with clear and concise plans. The quality with the information found in Wood Toy Plans (Wood Toy Plans : House Woodshop Woodoperating Tools) is well above anything you can find that you can buy.
It was the treadle lathe that really caught my eye and was the item I was searching for that brought me to their web page in the first place.
The lathe was shipped in two separate boxes and included a set of detailed, easy to follow instructions and as mentioned was a walk in the park to re-assemble. I do have it resting up against a thin, scrap piece of plywood secured across the width of my work bench as well as having my bench dogs raised slightly along the front edge to keep the piece from moving about. This type of shaving can only be obtained after you’ve flattened and tuned the sole of your bench plane as well as working with a plane iron that is razor sharp! His DVD on hand planing techniques available through Lie Nielsen Toolworks is extremely informative and should be viewed by all using hand planes in the workshop. Once it doesn’t cut a shaving a couple of through passes and you should be good to go.
An interesting thing with boards that are edge joined with this blade is that it shows up on the end grain: the joint is tight along the top and bottom edges but has a little more visible glue line, the opposite of an hourglass shape. This is to keep any one main line to any tool shorter, reducing the static pressure (resistance to airflow) to each machine. Re-connecting flex hoses for every cut breaks up your workflow, takes energy, and eventually you may tend to make quick cuts without turning on the collector.
These stores don’t usually sell sheet metal straight duct so you can go to your “big box” home store for that.
The two fences on the main hook are also made in this fashion so you can be sure they’ll never budge. As for the Bad Axe Bench Hooks, I can tell you I’ve them in my home woodshop corner and use them whenever I need. Also looking forward to the 14″ sash saw I ordered a couple of days ago from Mark at Bad Axe.
I tried it through some quarter sawn white oak I still had lying around from the door build last year and I swear you’d almost be able to leave the sawn edge out on a piece of furniture! The models I have been using this week are filed 12 and 13 tpi respectively and one came tricked out in walnut and the other in cherry. The rip saws are just as impressive and I hope to take some of the 12″ and 14″ saws for a spin as well! The real audio determine which is lockable may possibly even help make your projects less complicated.
If you are merely starting out, the actual organization tablesaw gives you sufficient Power but Nonethesignificantly less turn into mild adequate regarding portability.
There are numerous sorts of sanders, Nonetheless newcomers must believe about irrelavent orbital designs to start. I’ve always kept my eye out for a foot powered lathe and finding a decent antique lathe is like finding a needle in a hay-stack.
With better filters from American Filter Fabric Co., I no longer have this fine dust layer you see on the black flex hose and frame. This is because you calculate static pressure based on the longest run from the collector to the most distant machine connection. Then your shop gets all covered in dust and is unpleasant to work in, and your lungs receive cumulative damage. I found that I had to order my long-radius elbows online (which have a lower pressure drop than standard elbows), and the same with some of the wye fittings.  I currently use 30 ga. I tried the miters and the planning stop tonight and am happy to say they’re spot on.
I requested them one year ago (I’m from Italy) and must say they are simply effective.
I used it exclusively when I built my sharpening bench in that nasty Ipe wood this past winter. Specialists on the other hand will find a bit more to find out from additional tips that can further boost their ability. The reason you see the coating of fine dust with the original Jet bags is because the lower bag is a breathable, woven polyester bag. If you waste 10 hours in a month on switching duct connections and running over to the collector to turn it on and off many times a day, you could’ve bought yourself a cool system and saved all that physical energy.
What I wanted to ask you about them is the following: I note the miters cuts begin to expand and the my cut (90° or 45°) may be almost inaccurate. And speaking of not being able to stop, I went ahead and ordered the reconditioned Disston D8 PHILADA (1896-1917) 28″ handsaw, 5ppi rip.
Before the guide was published, all measurements had been effectively checked by an professional, therefore escalating the reliability of this guide. This singed-felt filter bag filters down to 1-micron 96-98% brand new (without a dust cake), and even more after a dust cake develops. The illustrations and precise numbering is extremely essential because numerous totally free guides do not supply appropriate specifics which is why many home projects end up failed and abandoned.All round, Teds Woodworking is a comprehensive package that aids property owners perform woodworking projects effortlessly.
In the bottom photo you can see the three passes it took: from right, my first pass with two big sections that are obviously low. This is a answer for every person who requirements to design and style creative home furniture without hiring the expert. The middle shaving in the photo represents the next pass bringing the surfaces closer together; and finally the left shaving being my third pass is almost complete.
