    Hi,

    Sorry should have gotten back to this but it took me a while to do some testing. I used acetone to clean the nut and threaded rod. I tested both West System epoxy (G/Flex) and the red Loctite....

    Since I have some left over parts from my initial failed attempt with a 3/4"-10 rod, I will try to clean them with acetone and try the loctite red and see how that works. I wasn't sure if it needed...

    If I'm reading the description of the Loctite blue correctly, it probably wouldn't be appropriate for what I want to do since I want to permanently attach the nuts and the loctite seems to allow for...

    I already have some West Systems G/Flex epoxy which they say should work. But the threads appear to have some sort of lubricant on them which I assume needs to be removed where the nuts will get...

    Prepare threaded rod and nut for epoxy

    Hi,

    This is a follow-on to my other thread about using a coupling nut with a threaded rod for a leveling platform for a job-site table saw. I want to be able to use epoxy to permanently affix two...

    Hi,

    I tried shopping locally and that was a complete bust. What little supply I found had the same problem, i.e. the coupling nut would only thread on half-way and then stop.

    So I decided to...

    Essentially, yes. Since I can adjust it if it should ever get out of whack I'll be able to easily re-adjust it. But the idea should be that I only need to do it once. I had tried using a platform...

    Hi,

    What I have is a job-site table saw. The idea is to attach the entire table saw to a piece of plywood, i.e. the "platform", instead of the foldable stand that comes with the saw. I'm going to...

    Hi,

    Actually I bought the 3/4"-10 coupling nuts (well, everything, rod, washers, nuts and drill bushings) from McMaster Carr. Checking the description of the extra long version, as Jamie points...

    coupling nut for threaded rod mechanism

    Hi,

    I'm trying to set up an adjustable (height) platform for a table saw. My thought had been to do something similar to the router lift mechanism from shopnotes issue #121. Essentially using a...

    Again, thanks to everyone for the advice. I guess another part of the reason for wanting to know about using plywood is that I want to keep the drawers "relatively" small. I don't know if I could...

    Thanks for all of the advice. Sounds pretty much like I expected, i.e. that the glue holding the layers of the plywood, and the makeup of those layers, are where the problems can arise. What I may do...
  13. Hand tools and plywood - is that a really bad idea?

    Hi,

    I'm sure that this question has been asked, but in trying to search for something related I didn't see anything (lots of posts but none of the titles seemed appropriate)...maybe I should have...

    So, if I could sum up what I think the "general consensus" is:

    Cursive 'f' for reference faces
    'V' on reference edge with point towards reference face
    Triangle marking - especially on pieces...

    Thanks to everyone for your replies...I'm not sure it all makes sense, yet, but it certainly gives me something to think about. And I know that marking is very important to (try :)) and prevent...
  16. Specific pencil marks for specific faces/whatever

    This may be a really dumb question, but...I'm still trying to get started doing woodworking (gathering tools, refurbishing them, sharpening, etc...), and will be using hand tools, so even...

    Hi,

    Actually, everything is showing up fine for me now, both the original link and the images in Firefox. I did reboot my MacBook, so perhaps there was some issue with the caching on my end. So,...

    Hi Bob,

    Yeah, that's what I figured, I just thought that maybe someone would, if they hadn't already, do a "hand-tools version" of the Schwarz article...Or even something like a podcast on how to...

    Hi,

    I know this topic is a bit old, but I recently got the Schwarz PDF on the Roubo try square which shows me how to make one using a table saw, which I don't have, so I was wondering if anyone...

    Hi Andrew,

    I took a look at Logan Cabinet Shoppe. He (Bob) built his last bench using softwood, so that it wouldn't dent the pieces he works on, and it looks like a very nice bench. He also uses...

    Hi Andy,

    Not sure how I missed your post when I was looking through here earlier, but I want to thank you for taking the time to put all of that in.

    I too decided to join Fine Woodworking and...

    Hi Steve,

    Yes, Mid-Coast Maine does seem to be hand tool heaven.

    I went by Lie Nielsen a few weeks ago. They tend to be on the very-well-made-and-not-inexpensive side of things. Which would be...
